NFL preview magazines break down the 2015 Redskins

This breakdown was a hit with readers last year so I’ll continue it again this year.

The Washington Redskins are attempting to start fresh under new general manager Scot McCloughan, who has brought a different attitude and scouting perspective after stints with successful franchises like the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.

The team isn’t expected to improve on it’s record from the last two seasons (3-13 in 2013 and 4-12 in 2014) much, if at all, but under McCloughan’s guidance, the quality of the roster appears to be on the upswing.

The burgundy and gold are set to receive visits from at least three free agents this week at defensive positions of need. Two will reportedly visit on Wednesday.

According to reports, former New England Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner will visit the Redskins on Thursday after meeting with the New Orleans Saints.

How does the Redskins run defense stack up against DeMarco Murray?

Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray has been far and away the best running back in the NFL this season.

He has sped past not only his first seven opponents but also the NFL record book, becoming the first NFL player to begin a season with seven straight 100-yard rushing games, eclipsing Jim Brown’s previous record of six straight.

Through seven games Murray has rushed for 913 yards, seven touchdowns and is averaging 4.9 yards per carry. Heading into Monday night’s showdown versus the Washington Redskins he leads the Arian Foster, the NFL’s next best rusher, by 147 yards. That gap will surely widen after Monday night, but by how much is the question.

It’s no secret that the Redskins go as Robert Griffin III goes. A season after winning Offensive Rookie of the Year during a rookie campaign that ended with a torn ACL and LCL, Griffin returned to the field in a miraculous amount of time. After his devastating injury in the 2013 Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks on January 6, he started the team’s 2013 season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles on September 9. However, hampered by a knee brace all season, Griffin struggled and was benched by head coach Mike Shanahan for the final three games of what turned out to be a 3-13 season. (more…)

Now with a new regime in charge and a revamped roster, the Redskins face one of the easiest schedules in the NFL in 2014. Ten of their 16 games feature teams with a .500 record or worse from last season.
