At the halfway point of the season, we do a quick reset of the teams in the NFC East.
The Redskins (3-5): Re-building.
Why is that such a bad word? The team Mike Shanahan inherited nearly two years ago was in shambles. Too many old guys. Too many old guys who couldn’t play. Too many old guys who were making too much money.
As Shanahan related on Monday, he knew right away this wasn’t a quick-fix process (even though he gave that very impression by trading for Donovan McNabb).
The final eight games are about seeing who can help the Redskins in 2012 and the biggest regret should be not drafting a quarterback in the late rounds the last two years.
The Redskins are a four-point underdog Sunday at Miami and it will be surprising if they’re favored in Vegas again this year.
