The Super Bowl has come and gone which means it’s time to turn our attention to April’s NFL Draft. So join us as we begin to focus on certain team needs and start to analyze the prospects preparing to make the jump from college to the pros. The next few months should be a fun ride.
This year’s draft is as important as ever for the Redskins to build on this year’s success. It’s important to add key pieces so that the team can continue to make positive strides without taking any steps backwards.
There are many question marks that the team will need to address.
Who will the Redskins select? Will they address the needs in the secondary? What’s the status of linebacker London Fletcher? Will Robert Griffin III be ready for training camp? These are all questions that will slowly, but surely, be answered over the course of the next few months.
And if you all are wondering what moves are brewing at Redskins Park or if there is a magical potion being concocted to help address the void left by football, sorry. We have no secret ingredient to remedy the heartache that the offseason brings.
Coaches are studying game film as the process of preparing the playbooks for next year starts. The scouts are watching tape of college players as they start to finalize their draft and free agent boards. And decisions are being made as the coaches decide which players will return before the free agency period begins on March 12.
If you are coming to us for insider info, we don’t have any top secret information to divulge just yet, but what I can tell you is that we are feeling the same effects as you, a sense of helplessness that is the void left by football.
Problem solved if games were year around. Unfortunately, the players association probably would never agree to that deal. But, I digress.
We’re bringing you yet another Social Media Weekly Spotlight, including a message from LB London Fletcher for Dallas fans! You’ll like what the savvy vet had to say.
It’s pretty safe to say that Fletcher voiced (or tweeted) the feeling of Redskins fans everywhere earlier this week. Raise your hand if you’ve ever started a good anti-Dallas chant, or slapped a ‘Honk if you Hate Dallas’ sign on your car bumper, or told off a local Dallas fans – words that would have your mother washing your mouth out with soap.
The fact is that Dallas fans are everywhere like mosquitos on a summer night in the bayou; pests that you can’t get rid of.
Well, Fletcher had a message for Cowboys fans that would make you proud:
There’s only one possible response for that: Hail to the Redskins!
If you don’t already follow DE Adam Carriker on Twitter, he’s a great follow. The sixth-year pro always delivers a good laugh.

If you play your heart out for what your jersey says on the front, everyone will remember what the jersey says on the back.—
