blitzing with the lbs and the cbs is going to help the dls.not only will the ol have to concentrate on blocking the guy in front of him but out of the corner of his little eyes he's gonna have to keep a look out for a lb or a cb shooting in.

you forgot to mention the down side of blitzing cbs and lbs can be...
its not that easy, you have to have a good front four. maybe we have it, but i havent seen it. majority of games are won in the trenches my man. and with guys like demetric evans...? i dunno... we'll see, but i would like robinson cuz he pretty consistant and played under blache as well has a good relationship with him

very true my friend but i think ( being optimistic ) the d line is better than people give them credit for. i also feel that all the blitzing will help them

the skins havn't had a defense as agressive as this one in a long time,not even marvin lewis' defense. i would much rather have an agressive d that might get burnt once in a while than a conservative d that sits back, gets picked apart and still gets burnt.with an agressie d the skins will at least force some turnovers

robinson is an upgrade to noble, or salavea, whoever owuld start. he has been consistent, and has good speed for a DT, although he is undersized somewhat in the weight category. blache knows him, he would not bring him in if he didnt like something about him

remember we're thin at DB now. who's gonna cover the WR Springs leaves at the line to blitz the qb? much less replace him if Springs gets hurt by running backs or Olinemen trying to block him?

we really need to develop good pressure from the front four, pure and simple. anything else is a workaround that leaves a gap that any offense that does is its homework can exploit.

Maybe he is a Lawrence Taylor fan and he knows he is not taking 56 from LaVar.

He did in Tenesse. And the result was a better defense statically than the ravens the year they won the super bowl.

Just saw the Dolphins signed him as it ran across the bottom line.

All I have to say is, damn, he would have been an upgrade, but I feel Ron Warner is a beast.

Lets not forget that our safties are now very versatile. Lott and Taylor can also cover like corners. This gives us lots of diferent looks. And when has a D-coordintor come to the Redskins that hasn't preached he is going to be aggressive. That is the natural response of all D-Coordinators. This is the 1st one that we have had who does blitz on a consistent basis. The D-turned 14 points in the 1st quarter against a supposed strong offense the Falcons.

Kepp on blitzing Mr. Williams with your corners, safties and linebackers.

is that true? DAMN. why is our Dline not a priority for us?? that's Kearse, Ogun, Douglas, and now Robinson we let slip by. we're supposed to dominate with guys like Wynn, Evans and Warner?? i really don't get it.

blitzing with our DBs and LBs is all fine and good, but is it smart to do it every down, and won't smart QBs eventually find the holes??

experts and fans alike all see the 'Skin Dline as a weak point, and nothing at all is being done about it. whats with the blinders???

miami has more cap space due to their glaring holes on offense... we can't compete with that. we did make offers, so its not that the FO isn't trying, they're just getting outbid.

Not really necessary in Williams' system. Priority is on LBs and DBs to take the pressure off the line. It's worked pretty well for him.

Yeah, I think it's important to note that the Redskins have attempted to improve their D-line, having bid and lost on Kearse, Wistrom, Ogunleye, Rod Coleman, Robaire Smith, Robinson and Douglas, as well as taking a good look at Kenny Holmes (who couldn't pass his physical and was recently cut by the Packers). There were also rumors that they attempted to pry John Abraham away from the Jets through a trade (though those rumors were denied at the time).

It's a little disheartening to know that many players slipped through the Redskins' hands, especially considering Snyder's penchant for throwing money around, but at least the team has tried to improve the D-line.

On the bright side, they were able to land a few guys that might improve the line, even if they aren't Pro Bowl-caliber players. Griffin, Daniels and Salave'a (as well as having Noble healthy again) should all be upgrades along that defensive front. Apparently Wynn is healthier this year than he's been in a while, and that, combined with improved coaching and scheming, could boost his performance as well.

sure they tried, but how hard? this is Danny 'Swoop' Snyder we're talking about here. why is Redskin One still parked on the tarmac?

i've never known Snyder to be so denied when it came to a player, much less repeatedly and all at the same position. it must not REALLY be a priority for the team, because if it was, it woulda happened by now.

im praying they see something everyone else doesn't.
