Just when it looked impossible, Redskins patch together solid line
There was a time not long ago when Jason Campbell would take a snap from center, and his eyes would fall right to the inevitable, oncoming rush. During a five-week stretch in October and November, the Washington Redskins quarterback was sacked 20 times, and hit too many more to remember. And his offensive linemen kept falling, first veteran guard Randy Thomas, then Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels. And when the replacements for the regulars started getting injured, too -- guard Chad Rinehart went out for the season three weeks ago -- there seemed to be no hope the Redskins could hold together offensively.
