But colloquialisms aside, the team is feeling… Well, instead of placing several adjectives based on general assumptions that would more or less be somewhat accurate to their emotional and physical status, I decided to ask as many players finishing up their week in the building as I could.

What's one word to describe the first week back at Redskins Park to begin the 2016 campaign?
