What up Vikings fans. Another rough year, like us, but I just wanted to start a thread for you guys and gals to ask any questions for this week's matchup. Here are some preemptive Q&As I get a lot from other teams.
Are Redskins fans and Danny Snyder still behind Shanahan?
100%. The Redskins roster was a mess when Shanny inherited it early last year, including a ton of draft picks gone thanks to Cerrato. Last year we went into the draft with 6 picks, and all said and done we ended up with 12. All of our picks in the first 5 rounds have proven to be starters and except for the two on IR (Jarvis Jenkins and Leonard Hankerson), they're starting. 1st round pick Ryan Kerrigan has played every single defensive snap and leads the team in sacks. For the first time arguably ever, the Redskins have a young, core group of guys to build off. Once the Redskins draft a QB, we'll be looking good. A bunch of our late round picks are starting as well.
What about Grossman?
He's not as hated as much as you think. He turns the ball over a lot (Redskins are 32nd in turnover +/-), but he can make plays. He's obviously not the answer, but given where we drafted last year (10...traded back to 16), I think the Redskins did the wise thing draft day to fill other holes and wait for 2012 with a strong QB class. John Beck was an utter disaster and will never play in the NFL again barring an injury to Grossman.
That third down 4th quarter scramble to seal the game at Fedex Field last year still haunts Redskins fans, or at least me. How does that happen? I'm still trying to figure it out.
