Elite QB Matchups Headline 2013 Schedule

Posted by Stephen Czarda on April 18, 2013 – 2:41 pm

Robert Griffin III

NFC East champions, first 10-win season since 2005, and the coming out party for rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris. Those were just some of the headlines for one of the best seasons in franchise history.

With the schedule unveiling for the 2013 season just a few anxious hours away, its time to ramp up the anticipation of what’s to come.

Before knowing when each matchup will take place, the storyline for each can be summed with one simple headline:

Elite quarterback vs. Elite quarterback.

While the Washington Redskins will battle the usual cast of characters in the NFC East, the Burgundy and Gold will be all the talk of the land on the West Coast as well as they will play all of the AFC West as well as the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers.

Crunch down the numbers and you’ll see that literally every time the Redskins defense will step onto the gridiron, they’ll have to stare into the eyes of an elite quarterback.

As the depth charts currently stand, 10 of the 13 quarterbacks the Redskins will face were selected in the first round and have lived up to the expectations and hype that surrounds those selected on the first day of the draft.

Over the past few years, the league has shifted to a more pass-oriented style of play making the men behind center that much more important on gamedays.

In 2012 seven of the men ranked in the top-15 in passing yards and six landed a spot in the top-15 in touchdowns.

Last year wasn’t a flash in the pan for these Redskins opponents. Over the years, they have combined to:

–Win four Super Bowls.

–Appear in 69 playoff games.

–Win 5 MVP Awards.

–Appear in the last four Super Bowls (P. Manning 2010, Rodgers 2011, E. Manning 2012, Kaepernick 2013).

–Play in 32 Pro Bowls.

Oh and they also face the Green Bay Packers record holder for most passing yards in a single game. (Just a hint his last name isn’t Rodgers. Its Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Flynn.)

So Redskins Nation, what are your thoughts on the upcoming season?

Check back with the website tonight at 8pm as the league unveils the new schedule.

    I’m excited to see how the redskins offense reacts if RG3 can’t go. I like Cousins and what he did the few chances he got. With Helu probably healthy, we will have a dynamic running back duo that they can run from pistol. Don’t forget, like Rich Tandler said, Helu does have previous experience with the option from when he was at Nebraska. I love offense this year but out defense (mainly our seconday) really needs to step up this season. They will get help with Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker being back. #HTTR

    Bring ‘Em on. Burgundy and Gold Pride! It’s been since I was young that I remeber thinking that the Redskins were on the edge of such greatness. Yeah we will be playing some great players, but you have to beat the best to be the best.

    I very rarely write opinions, nonetheless I read a number of suggestions here
    on The Redskins Blog | Elite QB Matchups Headline 2013 Schedule and had a couple of important questions for you if
    you don’t mind. Is this just me or do quite a few of the above responses appear to be as if they are just plain coming from brain dead people? As well, should you be writing articles on some additional webpages, I’d like to stay in touch with you.
    Is it possible to put up a listing of all of your current
    social networking sites including linkedin link,
    Facebook url page or twitter feed?
