Redskins by Position: Running Backs

If you were able to caucus, privately, the offensive coaching staff, you'd hear time and again that this is a position of need, despite Clinton Portis's stature, big salary, and all that. These coaches are longing for a home-run hitter at tailback, someone capable of stretching the field and getting...

Redskins by Position: Tight Ends and Fullbacks

We've come to the first positions that produced Pro Bowlers, and an area where little tinkering is necessary. Chris Cooley returned to the Pro Bowl despite catching just one touchdown pass -- on a gadget pass from a receiver back early in the season. He remains the team's best (only?)...

Redskins by Position: Wide Receivers

Today, we begin positional analysis of the offense. We'll start away from the ball and work in by opening with the wide receivers, a group that was the top priority in the 2008 draft yet had an unproductive season. Let's look first at that draft. If the Redskins had taken...

Redskins by Position: Defensive Tackles

A Redskins defensive tackle has not put up a stellar season since Cornelius Griffin in 2004 (how he missed the Pro Bowl that season tells you all you need to know about what a joke that process is). But he hasn't been healthy much since, and although the Skins put...

Redskins by Position: Defensive Ends

The Redskins badly need young defensive ends - and have for years - yet they pass on them as a group, generally, for entire drafts at a time while other teams restock with the next wave of Justin Tucks. Teams don't win playoff games without solid-to-spectacular quarterback pressers - as...
