JUNKIES: Redskins offense still lacks explosiveness. A big concern?

The Washington Redskins are looking to be more explosive on offense.

And Redskins fans are looking for reasons for optimism in Week 2 of the preseason when against the Cincinnati Bengals. With Colt McCoy out, the Redskins will use Case Keenum and Dwayne Haskins for the second week running as the quarterback in Jay Gruden's offense.

The Sports Junkies previewed not only which starters will see action Thursday night, but also how the Skins offense will look during the 2019 regular season. And there isn't a lot of optimism from them about when the Skins have the ball.

"The more I think about it, their offense is going to be so poop," Junkies Jason Bishop said Wednesday.  "I'm sure there will be a couple of outliers where they'll have somewhere in the high 20s in points, the quarterback will get hot, but for the most part, man they're gonna be ugly."

J.P. Flaim responded, "It will be like last year."

"The plan is, if everything goes right, is for it to be a defensive team that has an offense that takes care of the ball, ball control, and doesn't turn it over," Flaim said. 

However, Eric Bickel was more optimistic than the others.

"They might not be as bad as you think, I'm actually a little more bullish on them," Bickel said. "I think Case or Colt will take more shots than Alex did.... actually I think they have better weapons this year."

Of course, the Redskins will need tight end Jordan Reed to stay healthy, second-year running back Derrius Guice to stay healthy, wide receiver Paul Richardson to stay healthy, the offensive line to stay healthy and perform, and, of course, the quarterbacks to stay healthy.
