I'm not being defensive. You're being defensive.

The Washington Redbeans have loaded up on the defensive side of the ball in the 2009 draft. The 2008 defense was the team's strength (ranked 6th in points allowed, 4th in yards allowed). After these impressive additions, the unit should be dominant next year. This is very good.

The Redbeans re-acquired LG Dockery, but failed to otherwise address the offense which slumped in the second half of the year due to injuries on the O Line. Again. This should have been the team's priority and yet they ignored it completely, just like all unsuccessful teams (see also: Lions, Raiders).

Despite the line injuries, it seemed like the Redbeans were beginning to develop a stabilizing, emerging-veteran-led offense. This was completely pooped on by the asinine pursuit of Cutler and Sanchez. This nonsense has put Campbell's poise to the test. My hope is that he takes possession of his position with newfound determination.

My hope is that the Skins WRs don't blow next year.

That is my hope as well, BGGB. They spent last year drafting pass-catchers, and with the sort of exception of Thomas, they didn't do a damn thing.

Hopefully with another year under their belt (In the same offensive scheme, miracle of miracles) we will start to see some improvement there.

Unrealistic expectations include first-year pros dominating as they did in college, risk-free vi_gra, and mid-east peace in our lifetime.

Just to be on the sure side of stupid, the Redbeans just signed an undrafted QB (Chase Daniels).

Thanks! Can't wait for all the pratts to start chanting his name if Campbell checks down his FB.
