I think we've pretty well learned, although perhaps the front office has not, that talent alone only takes a team so far unless we're talking about special exceptions. This team isn't one of those exceptions unless 8/52 put up exemplary performances.

Ottawa is far more cohesive, disciplined, seemingly faster and more tenacious. What Washington has done to so many teams lately from a discipline and cohesion standpoint was turned on its head (and then some) last night. Primarily IMO that was because of speed and not just ragged, manic speed but composed high tempo. This is why I see this season as more of a transition year unless, again, they get special performances from 8/52. I don't think they have the necessary pace and likely don't even have the right mix yet to pull off much of a run.
