1. Rookie QB
2. Salary cap hit prevent us from adequately addressing some weaknesses this year
3. Injuries to key players
Shanny isn't on the hot seat this year. Plus, despite our lack of a defense and other weaknesses; you are seeing an improvement on offense. Next year is when Shanny will be on the hot seat. Shanny will have to have the Skins at minimum contending for the playoffs all the way up to Week 17.

I initially predicted 7-9; I now say 6-10.
When I look at that schedule I see the need to start winning at home. Let's make some noise today! I agree Shannahan is off the hot seat this year, his choice of Griffin is looking pretty good.
Of all our remaining opponents, the only ones who have winning records are Baltimore & NYG. Bmore has sustained a bunch of defensive injuries and may prove ripe for collapse. We turned the ball over 5 times last Sunday @ NYG yet we still took the lead late in the game. Carolina & Cleveland are game which we should win (given the state of our pass D, no games are gimmes, but we have better than a 50% shot against them). Pretty much every game is a toss up. This schedule doesn't strike me as being brutal at all.
"Whilst" is a word only used by pseudointellectuals trying to make themselves sound intelligent.
Q: What do you call a drug ring in Dallas?
A: A huddle!
Of course the realist in me says we are 4-5 at the bye. Every game is a must-win, but a surprise upset this weekend would help us tremendously.
With RG3 playing no game is out of reach, that is until our defense steps in and puts it there.
They know u work for CBS radio
Giants:5-3 (1-3 in the division)
Cowboys:4-3 (2-0 in the division)
Redskins:4-4 (0-1 in the division)
Eagles: 3-4 (1-0 in the division)
Then next weekend we play panthers at FedEx Field, Steelers @ Giants, Cowboys @ Falcons and Eagles @ Saints. We could beat the panthers at home. falcons could beat cowboys. steelers could beat giants. saints could beat eagles.That makes the standings in the NFC East looking like this:
Giants: 5-4 (1-3 in division)
Redskins: 5-4 (0-1 in division)
Cowboys: 4-4 (1-0 in division)
Eagles: 3-5 (1-0 in division)
In my opinion if that is what the nfc east looks like after next weekend, i can see the redskins controlling their own destiny after the bye week beating the eagles and cowboys to get to 7-4 heading into the monday night game against the Giants. i guess i'll be a falcons and cowboys fan this weekend and Falcons, Steelers and Saints fan next weekend as well.
