ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the football team Washington Redskins. With David Patten on injured reserve and James Thrash hobbled with a hamstring problem, Taylor Jacobs has a chance to step into the No. 2 wide receiver spot opposite Santana Moss. Sean Taylor needs to make better decisions on deep routes. The once solid defense is faltering. Fundamental breakdowns in tackling have been an issue against the running game, and the secondary has been vulnerable against the passing game because the team's blitz packages are being neutralized.
