Tough call, but I'm going with Washington. He's on the cusp of stardom plus his signing (and I suppose Barrow's as well) moves LaVar to his natural weakside spot, where he should shine

Taylor seems like the obvious choice but I voted for Washington too, for the reasons Smootsmack mentioned above. We have a lot of good new players on D and I expect them all to have an impact.

Marcus C. Washington. This honestly might be my favorite signing of the offseason. He is a nice young bull, who is just getting ready to go crazy. Ask me at this time next year, I'll say Taylor, but he is still a rookie and will need some time to adjust to the NFL. Washington is gonna be hte man this year.

I'm going with Marcus Washington too, I think his signing could prove to be a great one and a very underrated one, at least right now it is.

Doh! If I'd known everyone was going to vote for Washington, I would have voted for Taylor. They both should be awesome. I can't wait to see what this defense can do.

I voted for Taylor, which all of you would have guessed but not because hes a Cane. Taylor changes the way our defense will be played, he allows us to do more than any other player we signed. Taylor makes up for the fact that we lost Bailey, Springs is a good corner but isnt forced to be a shutdown force because Taylor is back there. Taylor allows us to blitz our linebackers more, they used to always drop back to help with coverage. I bet you that Taylor blocks a punt this year. Dont be surprised if Taylor scores a few touchdowns to. having an elite safety lets you try so many more things. I cant wait to watch our D perform next year.

i gotta go with one of the most recent aquisitions in barrows. While i love the washington and taylor additions, i think one of the main keys to a good defense is having a dependable middle linebacker and the past few years, barrows has been near the top of the list. we haven't really had an all-around highly talented mlb in a quite a few years in my opinion and i think he is going to be a monster against the run and provide security over the middle when either or both of the outside lbs blitz the qb.

Barrow will make a better leader than Trotter. That will help a lot having a middle linebacker that steps in and takes charge.

yeah and the guy has a very dedicated work habit and is always in tremendous shape. i think he's gonna be the catalyst who makes the whole defense run smoothly.

It was a good move to get him. Mitchell istn a bad player but having barrow changes it from a solid lb core that wont give up many big plays, to a group of skilled lbs that will make big plays happen. We stuff the run then they have to throw, then throw and we pick it then they have to run but have already given up on it. Mabye we'll actually have a positive turnover ratio and not give up so many points anymore. Our offense will help with that because im going to assume we wont leave our d in so many bad situations anymore.

I really like Washington and it was a tough call but I voted Taylor. The reason is I think, like it was said above, that he changes the entire way our defense plays. We can now blitz more and play more agressively. Also, I think as fans we will notice more of a difference in having a great safety because even though they didn't live up to their hype, we did have some above average linebackers the last couple seasons. Now that the Redskins have gotten some good skill position players on D, next year or maybe on June 1 if we're lucky, we need to get some D-line.

I have to agree Washington and Taylor are the most likely to have the highest impact on our D. But it would be best if DT Griffen and DE Daniels had the best year because it is our weakest position.
