It fails to take into account all the work being done every day by the REST of the team and staff, now having been together a year, and what a sea change that represents compared to where they were last year at this time.
Until the team shows it on the field, they're an easy target if all one does is read the headlines. I just wish other teams were as quick to dismiss "poor Gibbs" and his team as you are. Sadly, they know better.
Om, I'm a staunch Cowboys fan, but beyond the Taylor thing I think the Skins had a decent offseason. I think we will see improvement this year. The big question for the Skins may come down to QB play. The defense will be solid and the OL is better as well. We'll see but I think the NFC East is going to have better all around play than we have seen in a number of years.
