There are so many ways to improve the Washington Redskins and they need a list about a mile long. For brevity, I've narrowed it down to a touchdown and extra point's worth of "ways to fix the Redskins!"
It's not working. It hasn't come close to working. Injuries are not the only problem. It is the lack of communication, leadership and common sense that leads to constant nightmarish problems that the Redskins have to clean up.
Recent examples include:
Even if he does return, Smith struggled to hit open receivers in his nine-plus games and his mobility/play extension is obviously a major question. Either way, the Redskins are in major trouble at the most critical position.
They also let Kapri Bibbs go at the beginning of the season and luckily got him back. He went on to score four total touchdowns (productive for this group) and then was released again, only to be claimed by the Green Bay Packers.
Receiver Simmie Cobbs was not promoted from the practice squad despite the need for a young, developmental player to get game reps, and then the Saints offered to sign Cobbs to their 53-man roster. Only then, the Redskins offered the same. Who do you think he chose?
The Redskins also chose to re-sign Brown to a large deal despite already knowing that they did not trust him in pass coverage.
