Could the Skins do what the 49ers did in 2019-20?

This past season, the 49ers were coming off a 4 and 12 regular season. With the 2nd pick of the draft, they selected Nick Bosa, DE from Ohio State.

The Skins are coming off a 3 and 13 year, and hold the second pick in the draft, with all signs pointing to drafting of Chase Young, DE from Ohio State.

Obviously, there's a whole lot more to the Niners turnaround, and there are a lot more holes for the Skins to fill too, but these parallels are interesting.

Could the Skins do what the Niners did last year, next year?


That D-Line with Chase Young added to it, is freakin' tasty. With Rivera and Del Rio leading the new D, could that be the catalyst to turning the D into a top 10, or greater, defense? Could the Skins follow that all the way to the Super Bowl?


Probably not. But it is nice to dream ....

Yes, almost identical situation, except for they have better LB’s and a proven QB.

Our DL situation is identical, that’s why Chase Young is badly needed.

Are you saying if we improve enough, we too could lose to Mahomes and the Chiefs after blowing a 10 point lead in the Super Bowl next year?

This is a stretch.
Niners were 3 seasons into a rebuild with Shanahan.
Redskins are starting from scratch.

New system for the players. New players for the coaches. It’s going to take some time.

No not happening unless Haskins has an MVP type season

Our division was terrible this year. Draft Chase Young and hit on a couple FA and/or other picks and we could make the playoffs possibly.

Just draft Chase Young and that alone makes us way better.

Re: Could the Skins do what the 49ers did in 2019-20?

It took 3 years for the 49ers to go from 4 wins to the SB. In the same amount of time the Redskins could rise to a similar level. Even if the Redskins draft Chase Young and he does have a Bosa -like years, I still think we’ll only get to .500 this season. Too many holes and you can only count on Kyle Smith to do so much. In two seasons I think we can be in the playoffs and on our way. Obviously the biggest unknown is Haskins and the WR group and our TE. We have two stars on WR, but need a WR #2 or for Harmon to excel. We have NOTHING at TE and look to add two TE through FA. We’ll probably take Greg Olsen and bid for an elite TE, but may come up short for an elite TE and may have to settle for an average TE FA or pick a third round TE, like we did with Cooley.

Re: Could the Skins do what the 49ers did in 2019-20?

It's possible but there are too many ifs:
We clear all the dead wood and/or trim the salaries of the likes of Kerrigan
Haskins has a breakout season
We find a great WR & TE in FA/draft
We draft CY and the whole DL buck up
We find a field general at LB who can raise the bar for the LBs (possibly Holcomb?)
We get at least 1 if not 2 upgrades at DB, particularly CB
Guice stays healthy (and Love isn't a bust) - we have too many needs to pick up another RB

That's too much for one offseason imho

Agree, the Eagles and Boys both have big ?s going into the future. Dak is about to get Tagged so they will be cap strapped.. The Eagles have Wentz yes but he's injury prone as hell.

The Giants are young but need just as much as we do if not more. If Rivera has this defense in the top 15 next yr, we could make a run at the division.

Chase Young is the best player in this draft, similar to Bosa last yr and Quinton Nelson a few years ago, you simply HAVE to take him

My way too early prediction is the Skins could win 7 next year if things go right. If I had to bet I’d go with 6 wins.

Re: Could the Skins do what the 49ers did in 2019-20?

While my excitement is definitely up from previous offseasons, way too many questions at too many positions to expect a playoff season or even 8-8. The run game alone...with the O line, TE, and whoever will be in the backfield...hard to imagine at this point it will be a strength of the team, but I surely hope it will be. My guess is Eagles will still be the best in the division, but who knows what to expect from dallas and giants.

Probably not. But it is nice to dream ....
I think with the coaching direction JDR and RR...defense will become a priority and we will certainly get better with that and the addition of CY.

The question is, can we duplicate success on the ground? That's a challenge with 2 Injured RB and one extremely old RB. We need help there with another RB draft pick or FA signing. My preference would be to move on from AP.

Yes AP is old, but still much more durable than the other RBs on the roster and still the most talented...plus I think AP's style will work with Turner's offense. I'd keep him this year while Guice can see if he can stay healthy and hopefully Love becomes the next third down back...or maybe more.

It wouldn’t kill me if he stays as a back up to the young guys and a short yardage package type back. I just don’t want him asking/taking away from younger guys who need to play

Re: Could the Skins do what the 49ers did in 2019-20?

Why has everyone here just gone through a list of player needs? By far, the most significant offseason moves that Dan Snyder could have made to improve this team have already happened. He fired Bruce Allen and other executives and staff who needed to be let go. Before Snyder did that he fired Jay Gruden, a failure as a HC, and hired Ron Rivera, a proven winner and leader of men. Lastly, he ceded overall control of football operations to Rivera.

With just these changes, I believe we could be a significantly better football team even if we were to put all of the same players we had last season on the field. We already have many good players who were horribly coached last season. They will play better together under RR.

Of course, Rivera won't stand pat on the roster so we can't help but be better. We have money for FA acquisitions, we have the #2 draft pick, we can make trades and Rivera might even be able to get Trent to return to the team. I believe in RR. I think we could finish 8-8 in 2020 and take the next big step in 2021.
