The Redskins defense is a serious problem. After yesterday’s 19-3 loss a lot of the talk has focused on the unproductive offense (and don’t get me wrong, it was bad yesterday), but the real issue is the defense. The offense has at least played well a couple of times this year, we are still waiting for the first decent defensive performance.
Shawn Springs is a big loss, but is can he fix this defense? They give up big play after big play, and cannot get off the field. The Giants ran the ball at will, they passed the ball at will, and absolutely controlled the game.
I’m at a loss as to what the Redskins should do. I wanted them to use a more conservative game plan to avoid putting the weak secondary into coverages they couldn’t handle, but that’s what they did on Sunday, with the same pathetic results. So what are your thoughts to fixing the defense?
