WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – It’s easy to have your judgement clouded with hometown perspective of your football team, when the only news you consume is news about your hometown football team emanating from your hometown.
For the view of an outside observer, let’s direct our attention to NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger’s comments to Philadelphia radio hosts Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes, with regards to the team within the NFC East division the Eagles should be most worried about in 2014.

“For me, the team that I would worry about if I were the Eagles is the Redskins,” Baldinger said on Tuesday. “Because I don’t believe RGIII is a bad kid or a bad quarterback. I think he’s a stud.
“And that’s the guy I would worry about, especially, I think, if you put him with Jay Gruden, I think they’ll do some good things with him. But they’re loaded right now. If RGIII bounces back, is healthy, and plays anywhere near like he did his rookie season, that’s the team I would worry about.”
Baldinger was initially asked to respond to how the teams competing against the Eagles within the division fared in the 2014 NFL draft.
To that, Baldinger mentioned the Cowboys were wise in addressing their offensive line, considering Tony Romo is 34-years-old with two recent back surgeries, then quickly glossed over the Giants on his way to warning Eagles fans of the threat the Redskins pose in the division.
In summation, it’s not just in Washington, D.C. football fans and analysts are predicting the Redskins to have a high-octane offense in 2014.
