Our Window Is Now

If it’s up to this blogger, I would be gearing WFT towards next season to striving for the Lombardi or   bust. Every season since 1992s championship, when Washington or (formally the Redskins) has made the playoffs, the following year their teams have stunk. No repeat playoff performances since 1992.

 

There is no continuation from 1 year to the next since Snyder has gained ownership of this organization. This blogger knows at 7-9 (this past season, 2020-2021) for a team that has not had a 12-win season since 1992 asking for the Lombardi in a town that laughs at all the pundits who since 1992 who give us a shot at the Lombardi during the off season and makes the call for the Lombardi because of a LaVar or a Deion or A Haynesworth or a DeSean Jackson signing: foolish. Especially because this team has not performed in a stadium post-Covid conditions and fans, let us get a winning record before calls for the next great squad, right!

 

However, organizations such as the World best in terms of professional championships in America like the New York Yankees always in the off-season are gearing next season towards a championship. A poor season if you are a Yankee player, coach, manager or owner is a season when they don’t bring home a pennant or at least a World Series championship. Here in Washington Football team, that mindset has been replaced by what, that a playoff win will be a successful season year 2 of Rivera and this mindset must change.

 

This blogger believes that our fan base will categorically reject another 8 or 9 year run to making a Super Bowl.  This kind of blueprint is way too long for a Fanbase that has been suffering since 1992 and since Dan purchase the team. We have tried everything. Now is the time to try: raising expectations for a young team that appears too no longer be a surprise to the league.  A 14-2 juggernaut next season will not be looked at as ‘where did this come from?’ as we have won off season respect and awards such as PFF Comeback Player of the Year with Alex Smith, and the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in Chase Young.  Our time is now.

    I’m of the opinion that the WFT cannot solve the QB conundrum in 2021 without fatal consequences to our long-term team health.
    I advocate trading back provided a suitable partner can be found in this draft while stockpiling picks for 2022.
    This FA period will surely fill several holes in this team’s starting and rotational needs.
    Extra picks this year by trading back will complete the rebuild especially if we fall in the standings outside the playoffs.
    We proceed in 2021 with what we have, or can buy with $$$$ only w/o expenditure of any draft capital.
    Next year with extra second and third picks, and our own, we go all in for a top five QB and hope we do better in our evaluation process than we did with RG III or Dwayne Haskins.
