Redskins 2007-8 Season


Recommended Posts

I saw a recent article on ESPN where the Redskins have the #3 ranked running back/attack in the league.


A little bit from the article,


"If San Diego has the best one-two punch in the NFL, Washington isn't far behind. Starting RB Clinton Portis was limited to eight games last season because of a shoulder injury. That injury really opened the door for backup Ladell Betts. Betts finished the 2006 season with 1,154 yards on 245 carries. Betts, scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the 2006 season, re-signed with Washington. His return should make for a very good training camp battle with Portis. Depth-wise, the Redskins are excellent. They also signed former Chiefs and Jets RB Derrick Blaylock, have a scat back in Rock Cartwright. Fullback Mike Sellers is a very good special teams player, blocker and pass catcher. With young QB Jason Campbell at the controls, the Redskins will rely on this deep backfield to carry the offense."


With the linebackers and secondary (assuming Springs is back) should be solid enough but the big question AGAIN THIS SEASON is if the D-line can get in the backfield.


The offense should be better with Campbell getting another year of comfort with the system. Our running backs and receivers should be great and that's not even mentioning Cooley in the offense.


But then again, I always feel optimistic this time of year. Anyone else have any thoughts about the upcoming season?
