Reed Doughty starts for Kareem Moore

Redskins free safety Reed Doughty started in place of Kareem Moore in Sunday's 17-14 victory over the Chicago Bears, a move Doughty said was more situational than a demotion for Moore.

"Chris [Horton] and me and Kareem have all been switching off," Doughty said. "They're just going to play us as they see fit, what kind of situations we're in."

Doughty played the bulk of snaps against the Bears, though Moore did enter in the second half. Moore, who missed the first two games with a knee injury but started four weeks in a row, has struggled against the run recently, and he appeared in Doughty's place in the second half, when the Bears began to pass more frequently.

"I had an idea I'd play a lot," Doughty said. "They said we're going to switch off some, depending on the situation. I really don't know what makes them do it."

Doughty said Horton, who has 15 starts in his NFL career, also worked some with the first unit during the week. Doughty and Moore each finished with two tackles Sunday.

"We all know we have to be ready at all times," Doughty said.

In other non-Redskin news...

Norv Turner is not on the hot seat.

His rear end is just in flames.

Chargers 2-5.

And Rivers is/was good, but he's a first class piece of [work.]

We need to get this FS position figured out soon...I like Moore and Horton, but we need some more speed and IQ back there...

We have two solid back-ups and no starters at FS.

In Reed we have someone who can tackle but can't cover, in Moore we have someone who can cover but can't tackle, in Horton you have a smidgen of both, in conclusion we need a FS in the draft or FA who is the complete package.

I wish we had Sean Taylor back. Every game I think about what he and Landry could have done in the backfield together. I'd love an update article on his wife and kids -- hope they're doing well and dealing with it as well as could be expected.

Amen. Too bad Hall is so small. He can't cover one on one for squat, but he would make a hell of a FS with his hands and anticipation. He has better hands than half our wides.
