one of my concerns this year is turnovers, both offense and defense. Griffin had 12 fumbles last year, he lost 2 and we scored touchdowns on 2. I don't think that happens again. And our d will go for turnovers but hopefully they protect each other and don't consistently give up big plays while trying for that int.

On offense I see a more consistent passing game leading to a good running game and opening a lot of play action. Think back to CLE last year.

On defense it all starts up front with the 3 bigs and a healthy set if OLBs creating pressure on the QB forcing them to make mistakes.

The key to what we will accomplish on offense is III growing into the Kyle scheme with a mix of play action, zone read, and boots. If he doesn't "slump" (which honestly I don't see happening except for at the start of the '13 campaign as he becomes healthy) our offense and Morris will be just as competent and then some as they were last year. Top 5 for sure and I would almost be inclined to say top 3 in the mix with Den, NE, and NO.

Defense is simple create pressure with the front seven and make the offense's WR create space within the 3 sec window they will have before we are on top of the QB. With upgrades coming simply from our own team getting healthy and the additions in the draft they can be very formidable.

As long as those things happen on both sides of the ball I will say we are a NFC and Super Bowl contender heading into this year and beyond.

Re: Redskins News & Notes Chapter 6

I could make a case for a sophomore slump for both Wilson and Luck, but I think with the players that both teams have added they have a lot more help.

This is the only reason I see that the analysts are picking on our guys, but they are discounting the talent that we have in place that won the East last year and was holding onto a lead against the Seahawks heading into the 4th quarter of the wild card round of the playoffs with a one legged QB.

D'oh! I did not do my math- 8 OL was not intended. I meant to say 10 but 9 could be enough. I like the addition of the C Mathews. It leads me to believe that LeRibeus, Tyler and others can solely focus on 1 position.

Just cant wait for the 53 man roster b/c I hope between Rambo and Thomas, we can gut the weak secondary members out- be it Doughty, Gomes, or Bernstine. Pugh would have the upper hand on the latter mentioned, right?

This type of attitude it why I love what we have become as a football team and why I believe we are here to say as perennial contenders in the NFC.

Getting Orakpo and Carricker back and giving time for Jarvis Jenkins to fully recover from major knee surgery is really going to increase our pass rush and sack numbers. Our secondary will benefit greatly.

But the single #1 biggest need for improvement from last seasons defense is solidifying both safety positions. Getting the Safety positions filled with NFL caliber athletes will go a long way to solidifying our defense. The additions of Tanard Jackson, B. Rambo, Phillip Thomas and a healthy B. Meriweather is huge.
Safety is such an important position on defense and last year we were severely understaffed. This new group, if they can get healthy and/or return from suspension will give a bump to the whole defensive unit almost as comparable as the addition of RGIII to the offense last year.
You are only as good as your weakest link in the chain and that is particularly true for NFL defenses. You can not hide a sub-par shitty player on defense. Good offenses will go after them. You fix the safety positions and we no longer have a glaring weakness on defense.
For the first time since the 1991 Sb season I might be able to say we are close to solidfiying our defense.
HTTR! It took a long time to finally fix it. I am just glad we are close, and it looks like we have depth! Thank you ShanAllen.

I forgot which expert said it but earlier today on ESPN they were saying the skins defense will be vastly improved and it's a reason why we will repeat in the east. I agree

Agree. I think T Jax could be the best player in the secondary if he got his mind right.

Orakpo is gonna have a huge year if he can stay healthy.

Counting on getting anything, even a roster spot, from T. Jax is risky bordering on foolish..

1. There's no set date for his return. Aug 31st is the first day he is ELIGIBLE to be reinstated, but there is no guarantee it will happen..

2. Even IF he is reinstated, the team would have to be willing to take him back.

3. Even IF the team takes him back, he would have gone 12 months without any football activity.

4. Even IF he resumes football activity, he would have to re-learn the defense that he had no OTA's or training camp with.

5. Even IF he re-learns the defense, he would then have to beat out players that have been in the program since April and that may not go over well in the locker room.

6. Even IF he wins a spot and the locker room is ok with him, he's one bad decision away from being gone all over again.

I don't see Allen/Shanahan/Haslett taking that chance on what could be a team poised for a deep playoff run.
