Three reasons they can’t

1. Because they can’t.

2. They can’t.

3. They just can’t.

Three reasons they can

1. OK, maybe they can. Maybe Kirk Cousins just continues to get comfortable. And maybe no one even notices Griffin’s presence and he never becomes a distraction


2. And maybe DeSean Jackson gets healthy and doesn’t aggravate his hamstring once he returns. And maybe the stout defensive front dominates. And maybe the other three teams continue to fall all over themselves.

3. Nah. This isn’t speed skating.
