Ten observations: Redskins analysis
1. Loved watching Tim Hightower play. He is not the fastest guy and he has his issues as a runner; itís why Arizona traded him for near nothing. But he also probably fits here better than in Arizona when it comes to the stretch zone. However, what stood out is the energy heíll bring with his runs and his blocks. Hightower will break tackles and have those 10-yard runs that fire up a sideline. And those blitz pickups were reminiscent of Clinton Portis. What I liked is how aggressive he was getting linebackers coming up the middle. He was able to cut them and both times he did Rex Grossman had a terrific lane, one of which resulted in a touchdown.
