That is true. But JC was often getting pressure in his face DURING HIS DROP!

JC will have a better feel for the scheme. The young WR's--at least one of them--should emerge and contribute. Those two things alone will allow Zorn to open things up more. Adding another couple pieces to the o-line will be necessary, and they'll get that done.

Zorn is a smart guy and will learn from last year.
How many more pieces can we add to our OL, which was our biggest liability last year?

If we draft with our 13th overall we maybe get a starter that can go the whole year and be productive. What other pieces are there other than the hope of adding that one?

Bottom line, we didn't improve our OL this offseason unless we pick one with the 13th overall. Personal improvements of our skill players won't matter if our OL can't give us time to run our scheme.

If Thomas and/or Kelly don't have big years, I'm afraid you are correct.

and Danny handing over total control to whichever big name coach he brings in (and then takes it back about week three when things don't go perfectly and/ or he just gets bored).

Devin Thomas is already working on routes 1-1 with Campbell and it has been reported that he has been around Redskins park alot during this offseason.
I figured he would improve from simply having a year in Zorn's system to build on, but his off-season dedication is a good sign.

---> 35+ catches 4 TDs bumps ARE to slot by mid-season

Malcolm Kelly is an enigma.
I heard he had another scope/procedure on his knee.
I also read that the procedure went well and that he'll be ready for training camp if not OTAs.
It seems like the Redskins thinks that Malcolm Kelly *when healthy* has better hands and is a better route runner then DT, so hopefully he'll hit the ground running.

----->35+ 5 TDs bumps Thrash to 5th receiver by training camp

With the addition of Dockery we are a better unit already.
Stephon Heyer needs to take firm control of the RT spot.
Randy Thomas needs to stay healthy or Chad Rinehart needs to step up.

But, Imo a simple way to insure an improved line is to draft a OL with a high pick.

I think Zorn was good last year.
Overall i'm look for more downfield attempts and a more aggressive approach in the Redzone.
I predict a 60/40 split of pass to run this year, with a focus on passing to start the game and running to seal the deal.
I expect more dow

Re: What to expect of the offense in '09?

I'll pencil in Thomas for about 20 catches and another handful of dumb penalties. He'll also cost JC 2-3 picks due to sloppy route running.

Kelly will nurse his knee all year and every week we'll ask why he's not on IR already.

Davis will get talked up all year about how great he looks in practice only to be a complete no-show on gameday. Zorn will explain it away by saying the packages they were using just didn't include Davis.

Rhinehardt will be cut at some point.

So basically the exact same thing as 2008?

So on that note, are you for bringing in Cutler now?

This is not an April Fools joke. This is an argument that someone made.

Sure why not. We're due for a QB change any way. Then in 2 years when we're sick of Cutler we can trade him and start Colt, or trade for whoever is the hot name at that time.

Get ahold of yourself Matty. Snap out of it and shake it off. Don't give in to it.

I love the dark side. Perhaps we could trade some draft picks away for a really good punter?

Has anyone ever heard a doctor say "Boy I really ****ed the dog on that operation. Not my day I guess". Even when the person they're operating on DIES, they still come out and say, "We did everything we could."
