    I have my doubts RG3 will ever remain healthy.

    Thing is, their backup isn't too shabby.

    Hey hey hey!!! Now they do have Sexy Rexy as he's known in Chicago ok... The guy went to a SuperBowl for goodness sake.
    In all seriousness though I wouldn't worry too much about our defense Redskins fans... Just remember our defense could stink it up for 16 games and we would still be in the hunt however it just takes one play to cripple your franchise for the next decade...

    As a G-men fan, a healthy RG3 definately scares me with the D we have in place. We need a talented LB of the future, hopefully we grab one in this years draft round 1 or 2. We need help at CB since Prince cant do it all and Im extra concerned about this now that we resigned a 32 yr old, not so hot anymore, Webby. Hopefully a.) he has a bounceback yr or.. b.) we spend an early pick on a talented CB. Id love another strong DE to lineup opposite end of JPP. Our Oline is a disaster as well and we may need a new TE. Basically, Im looking for a strong draft of rooks from the FO. All that said, I think we dominate the skins this year!

    Your offense will fizzle out just like the wildcat did and you'll be left wondering why you ever got excited about in the first place.

    Change your racist team name, btw.

    Actually, the early European settlers called the Algonquin Indians "redskins" because of the red face paint made of red ocher and bloodroot that they were known to wear. It didn't have anything to do with the color of their skin.

    Is the term now used in a derogatory manner towards Native Americans? If so, then it's racist.

    The root and original intent of the name is not. Only now has the term somehow become twisted into a derogatory meaning by goodness knows who. So no, the team name is not racist. I'd imagine that's why the name has never been changed.

    The term 'Giant' isn't necessarily considered very PC these days either, by the way.
