IMO Jackson played great . . . he was all over the field breaking up passes and even when a WR/TE caught the ball they had no RAC . . . he also was good in run support . . . i feel Jackson earned himself a spot and if he is playing FS with Marriweather playing SS the safety play could be much improved this year . . .7. Free safety Tanard Jackson showed up big-time as the starting strong safety. It’s a misnomer to just say he played strong safety as he and Madieu Williams both took turns as far as who was deep. Jackson played some single high safety at times. He nearly took the head off receiver Kris Adams on the last play of the first half too. He jarred a ball loose on one slat pass to Donnie Avery. Jackson also made some stops at the line. I’m curious to see more when I re-watch the game, but he looked active.
i too like Briscoe's size and he seems to be good at making adjustments on the ball and going up and getting it . . . i feel that Briscoe has earned himself the 6th WR spot . . .9. Tough to know what to make of the receiver battle. But what I do know is that Dezmon Briscoe’s size helps. Rex Grossman (who played well, but he’s a veteran passer facing backups) hooked up with him for two passes, a total of 49 yards (one for 37 yards). He may have pushed off; maybe he didn’t. But with a guy that big you can throw it up to him. “He’s an agile tall guy, but he runs good routes and he’s got a good feel for the game. Obviously he’s long, has long arms and just makes plays,” Grossman said. Can the Redskins afford to keep a receiver who doesn’t play special teams? He’ll certainly have to learn. Mike Shanahan does a good job of giving receivers long looks in a game (it’s why some wideouts don’t play in some games). It gives them a chance to make plays. Anthony Armstrong had one catch over the middle (but he bobbled it; have seen that a bit too much). The other pass thrown to him looked a little late. Right now, Briscoe is a better receiver, but Armstrong’s value as a gunner can’t be underestimated. Paul can handle this role and if they feel they have someone else who can do it, then Armstrong could be in jeopardy. This race is intriguing because each guy involved offers something of value.
Chris Wilson played a great game and definately out shined Rob Jackson in place of Orakpo . . .10. Linebacker Chris Wilson continued to show exactly what he’s done all summer. He’s made plays in camp, he’s made them in games and Saturday he made them vs. the starters. He’ll be another guy who’s tough to cut. They tried Bryan Kehl at outside linebacker for the first time and, all things considered, he fared well. Makes him a little more versatile and valuable. Both players can play special teams, too. If one or both make it then Markus White could be headed to the practice squad.
seems to me that Montgomery has taken a step back so far this year . . . hopefully he'll get back to playing well like i thought he was last year, but he is getting pushed back WAY TO OFTEN!!Plus one: Center Will Montgomery’s shotgun snaps were off. He’d snapped relatively well through the first two preseason games as they’d had a lot of work in the shotgun in practices. But on some of these designed rollouts that three-tenths of a second delay can make a big difference. Robert Griffin III’s speed can help recoup that time, but this will bear watching given how much they’ll want to use this formation in 2012.
