Kolb: "I think the Redskins have one of the best defenses in the league. I think we have our work cut out for us this week.... We will try to take our shots, but at the same time, we will try to put together a solid drive and try to pick them apart as well."

"About 70 percent [my hot read comes open], I don’t know—a pretty good amount," he said.  "I definitely have to progress on a lot of reads, but the defense pretty much dictates that.  You try to get a good pre-snap read, but then once the ball is snapped just react and go through the progression."

Ken Whisenhunt: Trading Tim Hightower from Cardinals to Redskins wasn’t an easy decision - The Insider
"He’s a good football player. It was not an easy decision to trade him," Whisenhunt said in a conference call Wednesday evening. "But in order to be fair to Tim and to give him the opportunity to be a starter, based on what we had projected him in what his role would be here, we thought it was a good move for both teams. You never want to allow one of your good players to leave your team, but I have so much respect for Tim, and I know he wanted the chance to be ‘The Guy’ and have the opportunity to do that, so part of that was giving him that opportunity."
