Well, it starts for real soon for Robert Griffin III and the Redskins, and already there is a cause for great concern along the offensive line charged with protecting the future of the franchise.
Jammal Brown's hip is not well enough for him to play, landing him on the physically unable to perform list. Kory Lichtensteiger is still recovering from last season's knee surgery. Chris Chester now has a left ankle sprain. Trent Williams is a positive drug test away from being gone for the season.
For those who thought picking up quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round instead of going after offensive linemen was a good idea, now do you see why you are wrong?
DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer from the Cowboys, Trent Cole and Jason Babin from the Eagles, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and Jason Pierre-Paul are just the pass rushers this already dicey offensive line has to face in the division. They also have the Steelers, Ravens and Vikings with premier rushers that are all focused on baptizing RGIII into the NFL.
With all the early hype, many are hoping Griffin keeps a good head on his shoulders. I'm just praying his head stays connected to his shoulders because he is going to get hit hard and hit often.
Are you as concerned as I am with this Redskins' offensive line?
