Redskins Final Thoughts: Week 4 | WashingtonExaminer.com
Cedric Griffin isn’t a great corner, but at 6-foot he’s another guy with size. The Redskins will be facing a Bucs team with one receiver who’s 6-foot-5 and another who’s 6-foot-2.

I think the biggest worry for Skins fans coming into this week is how the defense will respond to two, maybe even three, lackluster performances in a row. The Buccaneers have more weapons than the last time we saw them with that scallywag Vincent Jackson, Doug Martin, and others, so the Skins will have to bring their “A” game to succeed in the sunshine state.

We have heard about the controversy surrounding Greg Schiano’s tactic of disrupting other teams kneeling to kill the clock at the end of two of their games. The question is, will the Redskins be lining up in victory formation in the final minute of their game against Schiano’s Bucs on Sunday?
At 33 points a game, the Redskins lead the league, yet they’re 1-2 as the defense allowed an average of 429.3 yards through the first three weeks of the season.

“We got Banks in there and it changed up some of the defenses, gave some different looks. It caused some problems for them, which I think made them adjust a little bit. Then, it opened some other things up, so it helped change the game just from a schematic standpoint. I think it helped gather our players some momentum and get the chains moving a little bit.”
