The Washington Redskins experienced yet another injury riddled season in 2014 culminating with a disappointing 4-12 record. With a talented roster and a healthy squad heading into 2015, things are looking up for this storied franchise.
Last season Robert Griffin III missed most of the year and his backup Kirk Cousins was out some time due to injury as well. At the present time it appears that Kirk Cousins is getting the nod at the start of the season but everyone knows things in the NFL can change rather quickly. Cousins will have an excellent arsenal of weapons with Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson at the wideout position, and Alfred Morris is a big play threat out of the backfield. Perhaps the biggest offseason move offensively for Washington was the signing of Brandon Scherff, who is expected to start at right tackle.
The good news for the 2015 Redskins is that the NFC East is not exactly the strongest division and they should be able to improve themselves this season and win more games. Defensively, they brought in nose tackle Terrance Knighton from the Denver Broncos who is under a one year contract and should perform to the best of his ability this season to better his career in the long run. Knighton’s nickname is Pot Roast because he can get in there and clog up the middle. Washington drafted Preston Smith in the second round of the draft to potentially replace Brian Orakpo who signed with the Tennessee Titans over the offseason.
For an organization that has a deep history of winning, the recent struggles of the Redskins are difficult for Washington ticket holders and fans to handle. 2015 is a new season and one that has great potential. Be sure to secure your Washington Redskins tickets early so that you don’t miss the team’s resurgence this season.
