Can we all just take one moment and review some fact here.
2011: The Redskins finish with a terrible record
April 2012: Redskins get Robert Griffin and a few decent free agent pick ups.
September 2012: According to NFL schedule, Redskins start the season against two playoff teams within their first three games.
September 2012: Redskins lose absolutely critical/(one could argue "star") players to injury in Orakpo, Carriker, and Garcon.
September 2012: Redskins continue to start rookie QB and play with critical injuries.
September 2012: Redskins go 1-2, against aforementioned 3 teams in which 2 teams were playoff teams in 2011. All of which were extremely close games going down to the wire.
Given those facts should you have realistically expected much else? I won't even go into the fact we had Jordan Black playing LT, getting beat every single play.
