    I think there are a lot of happy Redskins fans at the moment.

    There are lot of people who are happy about the way we handled the draft, trading down, picking up players with good character reports and plenty of playing time.

    I’m a little bit concerned by the move to sign mid-tier veterans at receiver and trade for Hightower because we used multiple picks on those positions. Still, until the 53-man roster comes out, it looks as though the new front office intends to rebuild through the draft. A lot of Skin’s fans are happy about that.

    There are a lot of us who are happy with the new approach to free agency, younger, developing players and on reasonable contracts. Only the Bowen contract looks over the odds. A lot of Redskins fans are happy specifically because there were no big name signings this year. We’ve finally got actual adults running the team, rather than Vinny “I built a play-off calibre roster” Cerrato.

    So, at the moment, I think there are probably quite a lot of fans who are as happy as they’ve been since the second coming of Joe Gibbs.

    That said, there is a sizeable section of fans who say they want to rebuild through the draft but aren’t willing to accept anything other than fielding the best possible team this year and aren’t going to be thrilled by a year watching Beck and Grossman battle it for the starting job. That’s understandable, but there is just no way the front office can build a contender in time for this year.

    I hope to God that Shanahan decides to play the rookies from the start and we don’t keep hold of veterans who are marginally better now but have no part in our future plans.
