Personal opinion. Who in their right mind assumes that we are capable of competing this year? I'd love to be proven wrong, but I just don't see it in the cards. We have to remember that one year does not make a trend.

Hell, If this cap penalty holds (which for all intents and purposes, it will), I don't even think the front office thinks we are contenders this year. My feeling is that the front office is willing to take a step back this year to take a gigantic leap forward in the years to come.

We'll become a prominent and formidable team that consistently is in the Super Bowl discussion, but it won't be this year.

3-4 years would ensure that we go through another regime change, so I hope your personal opinion is off base. As for who in their right mind thinks we can compete? I would think most analysts will have us up there in the playoffs, and I think if Griffin comes back with any reasonable ability not to go "superman", than we will have every reason to be in the NFC Championship.

Fact is, this FO is making a concerted effort to keep the parts that are working right, and finding players in the draft and FA that supplement our base. Of course anything can happen, but with RJackson back, our OLB corp is solid, our DL is good, our OL looks consistent, and we have reasonably good skill position players on offense.

3-4 yrs is overly pessimistic.

Re: London Fletcher leaning towards playing in 2013 (updated)

We went 10-6 with a rookie QB and some key injuries, and a shaky D.

How do we go from that to being 3-4 years away?

I think he meant 3-4 years away from our 3rd or 4th superbowl appearance in a row.

But maybe I misinterpreted him.

How many other teams could have said the same thing, though? It takes a considerable amount of luck to win a super bowl. Don't get me wrong, I think well have a winning record consistently for those years, I just think it'll take us 3-4 years to get over the top...

Again, just my personal opinion.

I'm not even talking SB, I'll wait to see how the rest of the offseason goes and of course RG3's recovery.

But I do think we can be back in the playoffs and be just as competitive as last year.

I was never arguing whether we'd be competitive, my point was if fletcher is coming back because he thinks we're winning a superbowl next year, he should prepare for disappointment...

LF has been to a SB, he knows what it takes. I think if he thought this team was 3-4 years away, he would retire right now. He also knows that a SB victory is only achieved by one team so I doubt he would be unprepared for it if we didn't win. I think he believes we are good enough to get in the playoffs, and once in anything can happen.

Fair enough, if we win next year, please feel free to mark this comment threat so you can mock me later

You asked a few post back who in their right mind thinks we can compete this year. It seemed like you you were saying we can't compete at all let alone for the SB.

I also don't agree that the front office has already tossed in the towel. Even with the cap penalty by bringing back our key free agents they're at least trying to keep the core of the team together, and we'll have a chance to improve with the draft as well. Not making a big splash in free agency isn't necessarily a bad thing.

I see what your saying, even Dallas won 13 games a few years back. It takes enough talent and luck to be a SB team, I think if Griff is healthy all year then we should repeat as division champs and win at least 10 games again.

We'll become a prominent and formidable team that consistently is in the Super Bowl discussion, but it won't be this year.

The Redskins were only two safeties away from being a 15-1 team last year. With the additions on offense last year with the use of free agency and the draft, it produced the 4th ranked NFL offense. The Redskins had true explosion on offense. We also went 5-1 in the division and were 1:17 seconds away from being a perfect 6-0 in the division. The Redskins were in every game they played in last yet except the Pittsburgh game. The offense also produced over 400 points, something it hasn't done since 1999. 5 of the Redskins 6 losses were by 7 points or less. The Redskins have drafted well for three years straight(about to be 4 years straight) and this team is almost totally rebuilt. The only reason the Redskins didn't inch further in the playoffs was because of Robert's ailing knee injury. I strongly disagree with your assessment that the Redskins are still far away from competing for a SB championship.

If we had the '85 Bears defense we might have gone 15-1.
