Redskins Riding High After Win

With a win last night, the Redskins secured their first winning preseason since 2008, finishing 3-1.

Exactly zero of those wins will translate over to the regular season, but it’s short-sighted to call the preseason meaningless.  For a young team with dozens of unknown entities entering training camp, this team certainly has a clearer picture of what they can do now.

For players with secured roster spots, last night was a feel-good win going into next week’s battle with the Giants.  But for players fighting for a spot, this is hardly a relaxing day off.  Players tweeted a range of emotion after the game:

Darrel Young summed up the emotion pretty well in his latest blog post:

Being with the players for so long through the offseason and training camp and then things change. People get cut or traded and it is tough because of the memories you build up with those players that you will never forget and then they are gone.

Carriker and Young appear to have a good chance to start this season, but Paul, Jones, and Gomes did a lot to help themselves last night and throughout the preseason.

This will be a stressful 24 hours for a lot of players.
