This morning, we examined the Redskins' 2014 outlook for the interior offensive line. Now, CSNWashington.com Insiders Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler will give their take on the most pressing issue at the position: Should Jay Gruden make wholesale changes at guard and center?
Doug Williams XXII-Going into the second quarter Williams was four for 10 for 78 yards. It wasn't even certain that he would come out for the first snap of the second quarter after he with following a knee injury. But he came in, launched an 80-yard TD bomb to Ricky Sanders on his first snap of the second quarter and the rest is NFL history. He was 9 of 11 for 228 yards and four touchdowns.
The Broncos and Seahawks matchup is the epitome of strength versus strength. Not only do you have the top offense and defense in terms of total yards allowed and gained- but this will be the fifth time since the AFL and NFL merged that the league's top-scoring offense played the top-scoring defense in the Super Bowl.
In Part 1 of this week's Washington Redskins mailbag, the topics: Roy Helu in the passing game, Richard Crawford's progress, trading Kirk Cousins and whether they'd be interested in Jonathan Martin, should he become available. Part 2 will run Saturday.
Even though the Redskins have a lot of cap room this offseason, they have so many needs and spots to fill defensively, that it could be tough to justify the money it would take to land Byrd. He's been more consistent than Jenkins, but the latter is coming off probably his best season. It would be good to not have to pay an exorbitant fee for a safety; if they could get Jenkins, a former corner, at a good price then sure that would be ideal because he offers some versatility. But I can't say I've looked a whole lot into either player just yet.
Cousins will not be eligible to be traded until March 11, but the Redskins are expected to receive calls from quarterback-needy teams.
A look at some scouting terms, some of the top QB's in the class and a look at RB's and CB's.
