Imagine your state of mind about one year ago as a Redskins fan.
Washington had just ended its season with a 34-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles to end the year with a 5-11 record, as the team had several issues to address heading into the offseason.
They addressed those issues, alright — and then some.
They got two key free agents at the wide receiver position — Pierre Garçon and Joshua Morgan — and then traded up in April’s NFL Draft to get Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 overall pick. They also continued building depth along their offensive line by selecting guys like Josh LeRibeus and Tom Compton, strengthened the quarterback position even more by selecting Kirk Cousins, and, snatched a guy named Alfred Morris from Florida Atlantic in the sixth round.
The result? Well, Sports Illustrated’s Peter King put it perfectly in today’s “Monday Morning Quarterback” column:
