The article presents information on the recent developments related to the football team Washington Redskins. Football players Clinton Portis, Ladell Betts and Rock Cartwright have one thing in common, consistency. Each runs hard, is adept at picking up blitzes, stays alert until the play is over and works at being a complete player. Their position coach, Earnest Byner, has done a good job drilling the details and fundamentals into his players. He has done a particularly impressive job with Portis, who once had a casual attitude about practice and drills but now works very hard.
