Hey BigSKIN, I love your draft picks...Id personally put Stovall at #2 however. But those are the exact guys I am crossing my fingers for!

they are far from being a lock for anything next year. plus, they do not retain many of their free agents and will lose some this off season as well

they will be no dynasty so their fans should savor this year. the afc is loaded with good teams
They were 7-5 because of BR's injurys. When he is healthy they are almost unbeatable. The Steelers historically do not overpay their free agents so it will be interesting to see who stays and who goes.

Sure the afc is loaded and the division is getting tougher but that implies that the steelers wont be making improvements. I think the steelers will make improvements and some of those free agents will stay (like in NE) because they like the organization and the winning opportunities it provides.

Re: Just how far are the Skins behind the top teams in the NFL?

I think we are a WR and DE away from being the #1 team in the NFC.. With those pieces I think we can beat anyone anyday, which I think was missing this year. Of course QB play will continue to drive our success next year so Brunell's health/Campbell's development will determine our ultimate destination.

The Skins were very close to making it to the big dance this year. The Skins need a strong #2 receiver. Antwaan Randle El has just made it very hard for the Steelers to not resign him next year.

Actually, Peter King of SI started the bandwagon about 3 or 4 weeks ago.

To be truthful, I think the Skins could have gone further this year than they did with their existing personnel. They simply did not have the offensive schemes to compete with the AFC West fireworks shows. While I appreciate all that Mark Brunell has done over the past couple of years, I think he has taken this team as far as he can. His body is simply breaking down and when he is hobbled, his throws look like Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn (before glasses) out there.

A new WR and some DL and DB depth would be a tremendous improvement, but getting Campbell (or Ramsey) ready would be a huge step forward. I'm curious and excited to see what Al Saunders adds to the team.

I turly wish that Ramsey could be the long term QB of this team with two three super bowl rings but dose he have what it takes? Can he be what we need him to be? As for Campbell I have not see much of him not even in college so I have know idea if he could take a team to a super bowl anytime soon!

Re: Just how far are the Skins behind the top teams in the NFL?

The Redskins can learn something from the success of the Steelers this year and last: Start your young, big quarterback (J. Campbell, not P. Ramsey) and let him develop his skills on the field. If he has the talent your scouts think he has, he'll carry you deep into the playoffs and perhaps to the Super Bowl.

It's funny how the commentators never second guessed those teams being there like they did to us.

Seattle only scored 10 points. They need to fix thier offense. It clearly feel off in the post season during the superbowl.

I haven't yet. I was looking for a place willing to take bets this early but couldn't find any takers. I full intend to drop some money on the Skins though.

the biggest thing they can learn is , if you make it to the superbowl, bring your own refs. pitt. surely had their own set of refs last night.

or they could implode like the 2005 bills, remember in 2004 the bills finished 9-7, one win away from making the playoffs, then in 2005 they handed the reins over to their second year quarterback j.p. losman. Their defense dropped from being #2 in 2004 to almost dead last in 2005. The same thing could happen to us if Jason Campbell isn't ready.
