It was a rough season for the Washington Redskins and they still had a chance to finish at .500 with a win over the Giants in the season finale. But it wasn’t meant to be and the Skins head into an uncertain offseason after finishing 7-9 and missing the playoffs for the second straight season and for the fourth time in the last five years.
Success or failure is based solely on wins and losses. Nobody, except for those closest to the organization, will remember the number of players lost to injury and how the Skins were hit especially hard. That they even came close to eight wins and were in the playoff picture until the final weeks was a surprise, but in the end the injuries were too much to overcome. After enduring the first losing season in the last three, it’s hard to imagine the team replacing Jay Gruden. Despite the numerous roster changes, the team played hard, but they were overmatched several times.
One player who made it through was Kirk Cousins and the Skins should do everything in their power to keep him. With quarterbacks dropping like the mercury in an arctic blast, Cousins started all 16 games and eclipsed the 4,000 yard passing mark for a third consecutive season. We’ve seen teams fade without a quality starter and we’ve seen others excel with competent play at the position. The Skins won’t go through the medical tent next year at the rate they did this season so it makes sense to have the most important position locked up. Of course it’s not solely up to the Skins whether Cousins returns next season, but the Niners have a QB now and that takes one team off the list.
