Who in the hell is Mr. Oz? Is he going to be a new character on "Lost"?

Here is a sampler,

"But optimism doesn't begin to describe what's happening here, in Washington, where the Redskins appear to be positively loaded. The players sense it. Close observers sense it. Mark Brunell, probably never given to a word of overstatement in his life, said yesterday that anything short of a championship run this season would be a disappointment."

I don't know about all Skins fans, but In think every year is going to be the year.
Unless something "unexpected" happens. Injuries, turmoil, trades etc. Too many elements to count can de-rail our SB plans. I prefer to take it one game at a time, starting with preseason and hope for a relatively injury free season. Last year, losing Patten and R. Thomas hurt us in the playoffs. Sure the WR depth is better but what about the O Line? God forbid we lose Jansen, Samuels, Rabach etc. Who do we have to fill their shoes? Ray Brown is gone. Maybe we can convince him to re-sign. He's only 64 years old.

Lets just hope we can get through the preseason without any devastating injuries. Once that is over, we can sit back and take it week by week. There will be ups and downs, but this team is gonna roll! Dammit, is August over yet?

Re: For once, Redskins could live up to hype

Does the OL really concern people??

If we want to talk depth, sure, that's always a concern. What team doesn't have depth concerns along the OL, especially if one of their stars goes down.

But if we're talking about our starting five, I have no worries with this group whatsoever.

We have the be very careful. If we are thinking this God only knows that the players are thinking. We need to keep are heads in check and make sure we champion the small things that bothered us last year. Traditionally, Gibbs teams improve each year. This should be no exception, but most of the teams that we should challenge, improved in weak areas as well.

Let me tell you why the OL concerns me. Initially, I cannot remember a successful Redskin season that did not have dominant offensive line play. Band-aids held the OL together last year due to injuries. I think Casey Rabach, and Ray Brown proved to be the move valuable thoughout the year. I cannot remember seeing a guy at Ray's age play the line at the level he did. Hell this guy was a former Scab player. His back up sucks, that is why we signed Rabach. I am not looking for Grimm, Bostic and Jacoby. I just want to feel that we can pass protect and run block at a high level in this new offense. Brunell might not have 5 good licks left in that leg.

Is is true that Jensen look smaller than last year?
