I've read exactly the opposite. Where are you seeing that?

Josh Morgan's play wasnt necessarily the reason for that loss. We didnt have it defensively, and I had no confidence in our K at the time (neither did the Skins, as they got rid of him).

Anyway, you're missing the boat with my argument. The Redskins were at no point a dominant team. We had a couple good games vs bad teams (Cleveland and Philly), and then scraped by vs the rest. The moxie of the team is to be lauded, in a major way. But Moxie isn't something you can count in each and every year. In fact, it usually moves away from you.

I also didnt mention our last place schedule, which will be significantly harder next season. With the same team, as stands, and with RG3 missing even 4 games, we are at best an 8-8 team with that 1st place schedule. Probably close to 6-10 or 7-9.

If the Redskins can make some solid depth moves to bolster the defense, and can draft *great* again (they have drafted great, IMO, the last 2 years), AND have a healthy RG3 for a full season, then we could see a better year, record wise.

But thats a lot to ask for.
