Allow me to be the first to use this simple, over-dramaticized line: Football is back.
Tired seasonal cliches and recycled expressions of excitement aside, it is genuinely refreshing to have football back, after an offseason that has been rivaled by few historically, in terms of its uncertainty and intrigue. The Washington Football Team experienced an especially heightened degree of that uncertainty, but today, they’ll look to put all the speculation to rest, as they face off against the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFC East.
The Washington Football Team is in the midst of a rebuild under newly-hired head coach Ron Rivera, and there’s a strong sense that, regardless of immediate results, there will be positive growth further down the road. We’ve already seen some of that throughout the 2020 offseason, as Rivera has begun to implement a much-needed culture change.
The 2020 regular season might not provide immediate success, but it will allow us to gauge how far the Washington Football Team has come since their days of dysfunction, and how much farther they have to go, before they can be legitimately respected across the league. It all starts with Week 1, against the Eagles.
