record be this season? The 2018 season kicks off tomorrow for the Washington Redskins as they face the Cardinals in Arizona. Expectations for this season are all over the map after the Redskins switched QBs from Kirk Cousins to Alex Smith. Was Cousins holding the team back and not able to win when it c Authentic Adrian Peterson Jersey , or was the team around him not enough to get to the next level? Will Alex Smith continue his recent winning ways in DC, or is he coming from a better team(Chiefs) with a better coach(Andy Reid), and won't be able to turn the Redskins into a contender.Season predictions are usually a crapshoot as teams have constant changeover every year. There are new teams every year in the playoffs, and usually at least one team that goes from last to first in their division. One of the things that has remained consistent recently is the NFC is the stronger conference and a tougher out than the AFC. Unless you win a weak division like the Redskins did 3 years ago, you're going to need at least 10 wins to see the postseason.Are the Redskins a 10-win team this year? Almost everyone who isn't drinking the Kool-Aid right now says no. There are too many questions marks on the team, and they face a tough schedule this season. Only 5 out of the 13 writers at Hogs Haven picked the Redskins to make the playoffs this year, and only 2 of them had Washington winning the NFC East.The theme for these season predictions is average at best for the 2018 Washington Redskins. The Redskins have been adding solid talent in the draft recently, and have been going with youth over older free agents. Jay Gruden enters his 5th season as the Redskins Head Coach with only 1 playoff appearance that ended after one game. He knows he needs to win now, but is the team going to give him job security after this year. How hopeful are you about this season, and how many wins will the Redskins have at the end of Week 17?2018 Redskins Season Projections2-14Sporting News(Haislop)5-10-1Sports Illustrated(Jones)5-11Sports Illustrated(Benoit)6-10Washington Post(Greenberg)7-9USA Today(Davis)Windy City KacsmarESPNCBS Sports(Breech)10-6CBS Sports(Brinson)NumberFireThis great site emailed me some stat projections for the Redskins, and gives Washington a 27.6% chance to make the playoffs heading into Week 1.Washington Post Prediction Roundup The 5 o'clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn't much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Jay Gruden talks offenseWith the trade for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, most journalists and fans haven't really focused on much of anything else in the past couple of days, but Jay Gruden had some really interesting things to say about his offense, both the running game and passing attack, in his Halloween press conference.I thought it might be useful to try to stitch a few of his comments together.Adrian PetersonGruden spent some time talking about his future Hall of Fame running back, who is 33 years old and currently the 5th ranked rusher in the NFL.In a comment that may have been just a general off-the-cuff remark, or may have been Atlanta-specific, Jay discussed the possibility of the run-pass mix changing a bit:One theme that I've noticed from TV analysts, print journalists, fans, teammates and coaches alike is that AD is being used in a wider range of offensive formations and play designs than has been true for most of his NFL career.There seems to be a consensus that Peterson is enjoying a lot of success because he is embracing the marriage of his gifts with a different style of offense that seems to take full advantage of what he can offer.A theme that has emerged over the past three weeks in Jay's press conferences is to acknowledge that the passing game isn't clicking, to minimize the issues, and to express confidence that it will get better.This week, he seemed to add an element -- talking about adjusting the run-pass mix to be a bit less run-heavy and a bit more pass-dependent, which may be a reaction to the Falcons coming to town, or may just be Jay recognizing that they can't ride Peterson this hard for 16 games and the playoffs.Jay did smile when he delivered this next line, which sounded a bit defensive in response to a question that implied that the Redskins offense might not be able to match Atlanta's passing attack:In an earlier press conference ahead of the Giants game, Jay had talked about the effect that the larger receivers -- playing due to injuries to the smaller starters -- was having on the running game.Asked specifically about Maurice Harris filling in as slot receiver for injured receivers Jamison Crowder and Trey Quinn jersey , Jay doubled down on what the big receiver means to the running game, and why the Redskins might rely more on the rush than the pass at the moment.Still, though, Jay never loses sight of the desire to balance out the attack.He finished that answer by talking about how this all helps the Redskins passing attack.I mentioned already that Jay has tried to minimize the issues in the passing game, saying repeatedly over the past few weeks that the issues just require coaching and minoradjustments, and expressing confidence that it will all be corrected soon.18 October: "We've had a couple shots. We've missed a couple but they are still going to be a major part of our success later on."22 October: " I think once [Josh Dotctson] gets a few opportunities to make some plays and he makes them, they'll be coming in bunches. We just haven't had that splash play yet.Those opportunities will come, he'll get them."23 October: "We will get better on offense. The numbers will come. We're going to stick with the plan and we're going to get better for sure."24 October: "Stick with the plan. Guys are doing good overall, got some wins but I know we can do a lot better offensively." 31 October: Asked about receivers running the wrong routes, Jay said, "Well, some of it is attention to detail, but it didn't happen a whole lot. There are just a few instances where that happened and that can happen from time to time. Guys moving around in different spots, like you said, but guys missing practice from time to time. But for the most part, we've got to get that corrected."So Jay has been minimizing the issues in the passing game, whether they are with the receivers, the quarterback, the offense as a whole, or the play design.But on Wednesday, he let slip that perhaps the coaching staff sees this as a more significant problem than Jay has been indicating with his recent comments would indicate.Wait... what?A big meeting?Sounds serious.But then Jay went back to the standard patter.So, we had a big meeting about it, but it's no big deal.We're winning and the passing game will click very soon.Really.Gotcha.Talking about Jordan ReedJay was also asked about the seeming inability to use Jordan Reed effectively."We" seem to be making a lot of mistakes here.Let me re-phrase part of what Jay had to say there:We targeted Jordan Reed I think 10 or 12 times last week, but Alex missed him four or five times, so I think Alex needs to get used to the routes Jordan runs, and that will come. Alex should have figured this out by now, but he just missed uncharacteristically on a couple of balls outside, Alex just threw it out of bounds, and a little option route Alex over threw him. Jay has become much more adept at masking his frustration with his starting quarterback len-jersey , but if you follow his comments over the course of the season, I think the cracks are starting to show.This is what Jay had to say about Alex a week ago: This is what Jay had to say about Alex two weeks ago:This is what Jay had to say about Alex before the season started:I get the sense that Jay was expecting Alex to get it a lot faster, and that it's frustrating to be in Week 9 and have a "work in progress".Jay let his frustrations with quarterbacks spill out all over the floor during his press conferences in 2014 and 2015.By 2017 his frustration stayed hidden for most of the year, and didn't really crack Jay's exterior until the season was finished; then he threw some shade at Cousins publicly, though not very dramatically.I sense that Jay struggles to be diplomatic in public... it's not really his nature.He seems like a pretty open guy who has had to learn through experience not to speak openly as a head coach in public, though, to hear Alex Smith tell it, Jay is pretty straightforward when they are together.Alex SmithThere was only one thing about the Alex Smith press conference this week that I wanted to comment on, and -- in a roundabout way -- Alex wasn't really talking about the Redskins offense.When he was asked a question about the impact of defensive pressure up the middle, Alex really gave a tutorial on what happens when Gred Manusky lets the DHogs out.Wow.HaHa Clinton Dix talking about becoming a RedskinI remember checking on details about Daron Payne when he was drafted and coming across a reference to the spelling of his name, and that he preferred 'Daron' rather than Da'Ron, which he said someone had done at Alabama.Of course, Adrian Peterson has created confusion amongst fans for years because his "AD" (All Day) nickname from his father is so close to his initials, AP.We discussed that shortly after he signed with the Redskins to bring a little clarity.It seemed only natural to learn a little bit about a guy named HaHa Clinton-Dix.I found out a couple of nuggets via the power of Google:His name is Ha'Sean Treshon Clinton-DixHe was nicknamed "Ha Ha" as an infant by his grandmother.Apparently, his name was often being pronounced /h蓲藞蕛蓱藧n/ (like "Shaun") instead of the intended /h蓲藞si藧n/ (like "seen")In an interview, he explained that the true nickname is actually "HaHa" (no space, two capitals).So, HaHa it is, then.Clinton-Dix and Swearinger worked out together this past off-season, and became close friends.This guy reminds me of Vernon Davis and Adrian Peterson in terms of a guy who is excited to arrive in Washington with a chance to advance his career with a team that wants him and needs him. This is pretty admirable when you consider that he got traded, not signed as a free agent, and that he only had a short day to adjust and internalize the fact that he was no longer with the team that drafted him 5 years ago.I really became a fan of HaHa Clinton-Dix when he said this in the middle of the press conference: "I'm so excited to be here. You guys don't even understand. You'll see."I could just feel that this wasn't a player mouthing platitudes that were expected of him, but a young man who was genuinely excited to be in Washington, playing for the Redskins.The deeply positive impression was only strengthened when I watched Gruden's press conference this week and heard the coach say that no one on the coaching staff had ever worked with Clinton-Dix before:This isn't a guy reuniting with old coaches or teammates, but a player who has a winning attitude who sees himself in a positive situation.I do think the situation was made better by the relationship that HHCD has with D.J. Swearinger, which seems reminiscent of the Adrian Peterson-Trent Williams connection.HaHa and D.J. appear to be guys who just love each other, and now are thrilled to get the chance to play together.Forgive me if that fills me with optimism.
