Laron Landry is an absolute game changer on defense. He was perhaps the best defensive player in the NFL in the first half or the season. I truly believe if Landry did not get injured last year that you could of added a win or maybe even 2 more wins to the Skins record. That would have made them 8-8 for the season and nothing to sneeze it considering the Mcnab and Fat Albert situations.
This season his lingering injuries in the pre-season allows me to believe that Landry may have problems staying healthy this season. However if Landry is able to stay healthy I believe the Skins are a possible playoff team. What I have seen from Beck and Grossman is that neither are franchise quarterbacks. I don't believe either have the talent to carry this team. i feel that both have the skills to move the ball and manage the game. Neither one could bring you back from any considerable deficit. So if the Redskins are going to have any success this year it is going to be on the back of this defense. This defense is greatly improved with move horses and the horses that fit the scheme. Otogawe is the missing safety that Landry has needed to allow him to be the aggressive hard hitting safety that he is. Could you imagine blitzes with Landry, Orakpo, and Kerrigan with ball hawks like Otogawe, and D-Hall waiting to get a pic six. Landry would have around 110-120 tackles if he had played a full season last year.
Also I think the skins should put Landry on punt and kick return coverage. Is there anyone else on the Skins that you would more having a free shot at a returner.
