According to Chris Simms, the CBS broadcaster and former NFL quarterback, the Redskins will be in the playoff picture come December.

"Just look at the roster of the Washington Redskins," Simms said in a recent Bleacher Report video. "There's just too much talent on this roster for them to not at least be in the playoff picture come December."

Simms then backed up his prediction by analyzing some of the roster and explaining the positions that should be the most improved heading into 2015.

Talking largely about schemes and coaching staff changes, he likes the redefinition of the Redskins' secondary.

"I look at the addition of safety Dashon Goldson, one of the best safeties in football, whatever position you want to say – free safety, strong safety. You've got Chris Culliver, a top notch free agent corner. And then Jeron Johnson, another guy that can play the safety nickel position coming from Seattle, with some young talent. We know Bashaud Breeland is there. David Amerson is there. But I do think this secondary picks up their play."

Simms then mentioned the other key areas on the defense, including linebacker Ryand Kerrigan and defensive linemen Terrance Knighton and Jason Hatcher. He later mentions running back Alfred Morris and predicts the running game will be enhanced thanks to offensive line coach Bill Callahan.

"I think if the coaching and the talent all can be cohesive this year," he said, "the Redskins will be in the playoff picture come December."
