With the NFC East on something of a down year, the Washington Redskins took full advantage of their weakened rivals to win the division and reach the NFL Playoffs for the first time since 2012.
They may well have come up short against the Green Bay Packers in the Wildcard Game, going down 35-18 at FedEx Field to an Aaron Rodgers-inspired Packers side, but the Skins has plenty to build on going into 2016.
None on the Redskins roster believes that more than DeAngelo Hall, who GiveMeSport had the opportunity to talk to recently.

According to Hall, the Redskins can replicate their NFC East win again this year and now have the talent to push on even further.
"This is one of the first teams I've been on where I've felt like 'Man, we can really win it,'" Hall told us at the Landmark Hotel in London.

Hall waxed lyrical about the current state of the Redskins, saying that they are strong in every single part of the field, from their quarterback to the secondary and everything in between.
"We have a quarterback who understands our offense, who can get the ball out quickly and read defenses very well. We have a defense that we feel like can make plays in the run and passing game, from a secondary standpoint and a D-line standpoint."
"Our linebacking corps can play the run very well and our receivers are stacked."
"We're even improving in the running game. Our O-line is better and Matt Jones in the backfield is looking good."
"This is one of the few times that I feel like we don't have any holes on our football team."
Hall went on to talk more about Kirk Cousins and Matt Jones, as well as the addition of Josh Norman making their secondary a potential 'No-Fly Zone' this year.
The 32-year-old has been around for a long time and this is one of the best Redskins teams he has been a part of. You have to congratulate Jay Gruden and GM Scot McCloughan for the excellent job they've done building this team.
So, the rest of the NFC East, and the entire NFC beware, the Washington Redskins are now a legitimate force in the National Football League. Get used to it.
DeAngelo Hall is very excited about the Redskins this season, but how well do you think they'll do? Tell us in the comments below...
