I stand by my assessment. I'm not a fan, but here in Northern VA, I hear lots about them on the local sports shows.
1st - they won the NFC East
2nd They had the #5 offense in the league with a rookie QB and a thin WR Corp beyond Garçon who missed multiple games last season.
3rd RGIII was mishandled, but there is no evidence that he's ruined.
