Remember the two first rounds weren't the only thing.
At this moment, the Redskins are cap-trapped to be able to make any FA move to improve their porous secondary.
2nd and 3rd draft picks at the spots they are picking will not be able to make a difference (on the average) in the first couple of years.
By the time they have some cap room, they have to deal with replacing the receiving corp; and then the LBs, and so on.
If RG III doesn't make use of his legs, he's not worth as much; but there's always a risk of injury.
The only thing that helped them last year was that the Cowboys were also in jeopardy the same way and the Eagles simply imploded.
Had the Eagles played the way they were supposed to, thebRedskins wouldn't have won the division.
And the odds is that the Giants will fare better this year; so, yeah, I think it's going to be difficult for the Redskins to make the play-off this year.
Yep, without a healthy RG3 I doubt the Skins make the playoffs. Shannys use of RG3 was stupid at best and criminal at worse.
Mara really put it to the Skins as well, collusion in the NFL pays. The Skins can overcome this by drafting well and taking some chances on Mathieu/Rodgers type guys. Kinda like the Rams did with Jenkins/Johnson last yr.
