They didn’t have the worst record, but the Redskins finished the 2018 season third in the NFC East at 7-9. With the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys in their division, it’ll take some serious changes in order to end up in the upper half of the NFC East. With the new additions of Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins and Terry McLaurin, we can hope to see two players with chemistry on the field. Combine that with Kelvin Harmon, a wide receiver who was very successful at NC State, there’s a chance that he will be impressive for Washington. Right now though it seems like Case Keenum will be the starter, so when will Haskins get his time to shine?

The Redskins are looking for a better season than last year, but their strength is not in their offense. As of recently, offensive tackle Trent Williams has yet to show up at Washington’s training camp. It is unclear whether he refuses to participate because of a medical or financial issue. If either is the case, it seems likely that the Redskins will trade him. This outcome is far from desirable – Williams is an All-Pro player and has been in the Pro Bowl seven times. The Redskins have also signed offensive tackle Corey Robinson as of Saturday.

At first glance, the Redskins should have a better record than last season, but their success will depend heavily on what they decide to do with their offense. The beginning of their season will be challenging when facing both the Eagles and Cowboys for the first two weeks. We’ll have to stay tuned for whatever the Redskins decide to do with Trent Williams. As for the offense, the Redskins recently announced that Kevin O’Connell will be their offensive coordinator, while Matt Cavanaugh will serve as the senior offensive assistant. Cavanaugh had incredible success in his first year with the Redskins offense, so the two of them together should bring some wins to Washington.
