Like the Bengals, the Washington Redskins appear to be yet another one of those teams merely treading water.
Sure, grabbing quarterback Alex Smith via a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs should do a lot to help with ball security and sustaining drives. But Smith won’t have nearly the amount of offensive weapons he enjoyed in K.C.
If anything, the Redskins offense seems mediocre at best.
Per reports, wide receiver Josh Doctson is looking good in training camp. But the defense is still lacking firepower, particularly at the second and third levels. That’ll hurt this season.
Expect Washington to be no more than a so-so squad this season.
