The Washington Redskins have shown a lot of potential in the 2014 preseason, and there are quite a lot of players to be excited about as we enter a new year of football. Jay Gruden's tenure as head coach has been welcomed by franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III, which is only good news for D.C.'s favorite team. Here are five predictions to keep an eye on as the 'Skins take on the Baltimore Ravens this weekend.
Brian Orakpo copied Johnny Manziel's money gesture last week, and we will have to see if the linebacker shows similar swagger against the Baltimore Ravens offensive line. I think Orakpo is poised for a breakout season under a new head coach.
DeSean Jackson has shown flashes of the deep threat he could become during the preseason, but I still have my questions about whether D.C. acquired him a little bit too easily. The Philadelphia Eagles were more than happy to watch him walk away.
Kirk Cousins is mainly on this list due to the fact that he could be used as a trade chip later in the season, but it also bears mentioning that there is a vocal minority of the fan base who believe he should be the starting quarterback of the team.
Jay Gruden has gotten a bit of heat this summer, albeit not from his brother (and national broadcaster) John Gruden. The newest head coach of the Washington Redskins has got his work cut out for him, but I think he will succeed quite a bit more than his predecessor.
Robert Griffin III should definitely call up some members of the Washington Nationals because they have been absolutely balling lately. The Heisman trophy winner will eventually learn that sliding is the most intelligent option against most defenses at the NFL level, but I just hope he does not realize this truth after another knee injury.
