Your Monday morning open thread:

About 13  months ago, the Redskins had the Seahawks on the ropes, up 14-0 in a Wild Card playoff game at FedEx Field. But just before taking that lead, Robert Griffin III tweaked his knee. Seattle won that game and have been on a roll ever since, a  run that culminated in last night's dominant win in the Super Bowl. It's been all downhill for the Redskins since they had that 14-0 lead. After a 3-13 collapse they changed coaches. 

I wrote about five things the Redskins can learn from the Super Bowl. Can they learn those and other lessons needed to get back into the playoffs and make a run? Can they take the core of talent they have on the team, develop some players, draft a few key pieces, sprinkle in some key free agents, and get to where the Seahawks are? Or is that just a bridge too far?
