Yep. Everyone is (justifiably so) thrilled about RGIII's prospects; Kerrigan is a guy I will be watching closely on the D. I think he could have a very special season.

Man, I hope you're right Goaldie. Kerrigan on D, RGIII on O - couple faces of the franchise!

Kerrigan tweeted this today, "Excited to be a guest on @NFL32 today.. Tune in to ESPN2 at 6 to check it out"

Setting DVR now.

Agreed. With Kerrigan most assuredly getting more attention from OC's, and hopefully a healthy Jenkins actually producing, instead of just the speculation surrounding his potential, Rak should be the beneficiary of more opportunities to rattle QB's cages. He must take advantage. If he does, his sack totals should jump into 15+ range.

now if we can get stepped up play from guys like Helu, Hankerson, Hurt, Gomes and the 2012 draft class to match with Griffin and an emerging star like Kerrigan.................

Well I wouldn't think expectations woudl be nearly as high on those guys as they are for Kerrigan.

Not for every one. But championship teams over time develop by finding that fourth or fifth round pick that comes in and once acclimated to the NFL becomes a star in his own right.

The Redskins have a very young roster heading into 2012.

Most of the age on this team is at specialist positions such as punter (Rocca is 37) and kicker (Rackers is 35).

Other than Fletcher and Brown the starters here are all under 30.

Perfect opportunity for someone to step up and stake their claim.

agree that youth matters...a lot. but so does that undefinable quality...team. not sure where we are right now in developing that Redskin "culture" that demands and receives total commitment and team above all approach.

well, I think you see that in the approach of Griffin and Cousins so far.

there is no qb here that refuses to put in the work.

there is no star running back that comes into camp out of shape and expects preferential treatment.

I think the culture here turned for good with the trades of McNabb and Haynesworth.

There really is no one left on the roster, except perhaps D. Hall, that has a controversial personality on or off the field.

Can you think of anyone now with McIntosh gone on defense that is at odds with the coaching staff?

I recall reading that Allen and Shanahan were targeting draft picks that were college captains or co-captains to be leaders here and help develop that sense of 'team first' approach.

BT...I'm seeing the same thing in the sense of getting rid of the barriers...creating the culture of Redskin "excellence and commitment" will take several years, however. gotta start winning, first of all, to connect behavior to results.

I sure hope so...I am worried about the "D" this coming season. Fletcher is old sauce (yet awesome) so he might lose a step. The secondary isn't looking so hot. Hopefully Tanard Jackson can step up. I think the strength of the Skins' front seven will have to carry the rest of the defense. I know everyone is excited that Jarvis Jenkins is back; however, I feel he might be slightly overrated by the fanbase. Dude hasn't played a single snap...

Well, there's obviously other guys on the team with character issues, and though it may not fall under the description you gave, their character issues are equally as important.....and 2 of them were guys we just acquired during this past offseason....
