ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the football team Washington Redskins and some of its key players. The classic blocking tight end that's so valuable in Joe Glbbs' running game is missing. Robert Royal hasn't been an overpowering and consistent blocker or a consistent receiver in the short passing game. Chris Cooley is a better blocker than people expect, but he's too valuable in the passing game to be used regularly as a blocker. The team should consider upgrading its depth behind DTs Cornelius Griffin and Joe Salave'a. One of the backups, Ryan Boschetti, weighs 305 but seems out of position.
