What Next for the Washington Redskins?

redskinsThere are just two weeks left in this season but for the Washington Redskins and their fans it probably feels like an eternity. The season has been a disaster for the Redskins and I am sure all parties involved just want it to end. Injuries and inconsistent play have set back the development of Robert Griffin III. Jay Gruden’s authority and control of the team seems weak at best with more and more players vocalizing their frustration. The questions on everybody’s mind is what does Washington do next?

Can Alfred Morris stay productive?

The Washington Redskins have relied on their running backs for many years. In 2012 the Redskins selected Alfred Morris in the sixth round. In his first two seasons Morris had over 1,000 yards in each season and 20 total touchdowns in his career. The last two years Morris has the second most rushing yards only behind Adrian Peterson.  After becoming a well known player in his rookie year Morris made his first Pro Bowl in the 2013-14 season.

RGIII has emerged as the Redskins offensive and team leader this offseason. With a new coach in town Washington can hit the reset button after last year’s abysmal season. Griffin has set the tone for players this offseason, and that message has been clear from Griffin.

The Redskins have their workhorse running back in Alfred Morris. However, the depth chart after Morris is a bit of a mystery at this point.

 

With a new coaching staff in town, Alfred Morris should be the only back on Washington’s roster that feels good about his job security. Jay Gruden has a history of using two running backs, including a running back that can catch passes out of the backfield.

Here I was thinking it was Jon Gruden

220px-Jay_GrudenSo a new head coach has come to town. It’s the TV guy, Jon Gruden right? No it’s his brother, Jay. Hey close enough. The real head coach, Jay Gruden, guided the Bengals offense to the playoffs as offensive coordinator. Wait, isn’t that the offense of accident-prone Andy Dalton? Accidents in this case are interceptions.

Anyway, the train wreck of the Skins season is finally over. If the Bears hadn’t chocked away their playoff chances (at least two of my kids wouldn’t have left the Packers receiver wide open for a game-winning touchdown), than at least the Skins could claim that two of their wins came over playoff teams.
