Sitting back and looking at things, I have a very high level of hope for our defense this season. It's dawned on me a bit with the additions via the draft, that we have the chance to truly have a potent defensive football team. So I ask you this...

Is this the best DEFENSIVE Redskins team we've had in a long time? And if yes... how long?

I'd say it's at MINIMUM the best we've had since 2005 where we were top 10. Obviously health is going to be the question, but day 1 starters, this unit has a chance to be REALLY good. I understand that Payne and Settle are question marks, but if they can do some of the things we feel are very possible for them we could be in good shape. The only real question mark I have is at CB2 and CB-Nickle. Dunbar looks like he's progressing, but I'm not ready to say he's on the same level as Bree.... yet. Nickle corner concerns me as well with how talented the TES are, (thank god we won't see Witten anymore) as well as the influx of slot receivers that, thanks to New England, has become a very important part of the offense.
