NFL Preview Show Extravaganza: Washington Redskins

It's another season for Washington. What? That's all I can really say.

It's pretty much the same thing year after year for the Redskins! They underachieve with the talent they have, and either miss out on or get knocked out early in the playoffs. Then in the offseason, they go out and spend large sums of cash on a big name free agent. FYI, this offseason, the Redskins got defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Over the years, at least in the Daniel Snyder era, the Redskins have added the likes of Deion Sanders, Bruce Smith, Adam Archuleta, Brandon Lloyd, Clinton Portis, Antwaan Randle-El, Andre Carter, Santana Moss, and so on. Only Portis, Randle-El and Moss have really gone on to have considerable success in D.C.

No doubt, Jim Zorn will be under pressure to get the job done in the Nation's Capitol. The honeymoon is over. It's time for him to win. Only time will tell if he can get the job done.

Time for those burnin' questions as always:

Most Offensive Player: Clinton Portis
Most Defensive Player: Carlos Rogers
Best New Guy: Brian Orakpo
Coolest Twitter Page: Chris Cooley
Team Song: Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing- Marvin Gaye
Most Likely to Succeed: Clinton Portis
In 2009, the Redskins will go: 8-8

Next up are the Cowboys!
