Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

As we look ahead to the 2007 season, who most needs to take that next step in their pro career for the Redskins to be successful (playoffs). For the purposes of this poll, Jason Campbell is not an eligible option because we all know it ultimately rests on his shoulders.

Kedrick Golston
LaRon Landry
Rocky McIntosh
Carlos Rogers
Todd Wade (at LG)
Other (explain)

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted Rogers, however, I think they all need to step up. I went with Rogers because he was the 9th overall pick (a pick I didn't like at the time) and he hasn't shown me any reason to believe he'll be a #1 corner. I think he's a lot better than people think, but he's not THAT good. He should be a shut down corner if he's gonna go 9.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

Gregg Williams. I think I've been pretty consistent with my critism of him dating back to last season.

Before we start preaching about how he's only the coach and he can't tackle or catch the ball, I want to take it a step further.

Those things are absolutely true. But I think he reacted too slowly with integrating Rocky McIntosh into the starting lineup and making other defensive adjustments. By all accounts, thus far, Rocky could end being a gem. Another thing, how is it that Tiki Barber has a career game against every time he plays against us? Where's the game planning? Where's the mentality, if you beat us it won't be with Tiki rushing for over 200 yrds! Why not make Eli Manning beat you with 40 passes?

In my opinion it's the coaches job to "polish" off the talent that exists. I didn't get that impression from Williams last year. Another thing, defensively we didn't play with any fire or urgency last season. You say this was the players fault. I say they didn't whole heartedly buy into what the staff laid out for them on Sundays. These guys are professionals and they have to strap it on every Sunday, I understand that. It just seemed to me that Williams was more interested in doing post game interviews on Comcast rather than make radical adjusments and hold his staff accountable for poor performance after poor performance.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I say Rocky. It won't take a lot for him to step it up compared to Holdman, but that was arguably our weakest link last year. Sure Carlos has some improvement to do, but that was nowhere near the ineptitude of Warrick Holdman. If Rocky can at least be MEDIOCRE that'll make a huge difference in our run defense and in turn our reaction to the playaction.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

Rogers without question. This is a guy who was drafted ninth overall and to now he has done NOTHING to show for it. 3 interceptions in two seasons. We are not talking about some walk-on scrub this guy was a thorpe award winner. I am sick of him getting burnt. Get up on the line jam the WR's and run with them. I mean he runs a 4.37 god!!!!!!!!!!!1 If he doesn't start doing this, he WILL be riding the bench.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted the whole team. If we look back to last year we could name a few spots or players who had a good year. But now that I think about it maybe the O line was the only part of our team really clicking and hats off to Betts. We need everyone to re-focus and get this thing going.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I said Wade. Filling the left guard position is CRUTIAL to the offenses success. The Skins can ill afford to have a gaping hole on the left side as pressure up the middle can kill an offensive scheme regardless of how good it may be. If Wade steps in and performs, this offense has a much better chance of being VERY good. If not, the team will struggle until they put in the patchwork to fix a leaky line.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I voted other... I'm going with a boring response of the entire D.

I'm not too concerned about the offense this year, I think they'll move the ball and score points, but the D really needs to rebound for this team to have any hope of making a playoff run.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I think Rodgers has alot to prove, he really need's to step it up, last year IMO he played aweful. And this year as it stands if we keep Springs as our #1 which of course he will be if he's with the team and healthy, he better step it up there's some stiff competion at CB. But it's close I also want to see something out of Rocky.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

I also think that Landry or whoever plays the other safety starting out is a close second. Holdman and AA were HORRIBLE and the journeymen we got out of FA weren't much better. With better safety play, the overall defense is going to be better.

Re: Hooskins Presents the "Who Needs to Step Up" Poll

For the record, I think we have some helluva talent on defense. Pound for pound, I'll take our unit against any other team in the NFC, save the Bears maybe.

I think C. Rogers can and will develop into a very good cornerback. Cornerback is such an isolated position that if you're not doing too well, it really makes it look like you suck. And conversely, if you're catching a lot of interceptions people tend to equate that with a Pro-Bowl caliber corner.

If Rogers grabs half, yes half, those interceptions last season, we're not even having this conversation about what a bum he is.
