The NFL kicks off Thursday, September 5. Daily previews of all eight division are in order.
Sidenote: In every post to follow, I will reference the NFL team in Landover as “Washington” and will not use the term “Redskins” intentionally, following in the footsteps of sites such as Slate.
I think we’re all tired of the RGIII/Shanahan storyline by now, and honestly, if that’s the only major issue that team has to face this season, it’s still a good day. Looking at the division, not much stands in the way for Griffin and Co., considering the Eagles are in re-branding shambles, the Cowboys have struggled to maintain possession in the preseason, and the Giants have been hit by a few injuries. Prepare for the worst from your fam/co-worker/friend that can’t shut up about Washington’s glory, but I guess you can sleep at night knowing your team’s QB doesn’t rock Maxine Shaw’s hair from “Living Single.” There’s that, right?
