    Rich Tandler says the Redskins lost a heart-breaker yesterday. Yeah, well, maybe, whatever.

    We lost because of lack of pressure on the QB in the last 1:05. We had to rush three and lay back in the old “prevent” defense. The “defense” guaranteed to generate a score for the offense.

    Truth is we don’t have enough DT’s that can overwhelm to o-line blockers ala CHRIS BAKER who generated a sack by literally bowling over the RG and trampling him on the way to STAFFORD. At least, I hope he got credit for that sack though only holding STAFFORD’s heel when the QB went down.

    In the next draft a #1 DT and a #2 T. Reverse the order in the 2018 draft and get TRENT WILLIAMS’ replacement.

    Age is catching up to him. By 2019, WILLIAMS could shift to LG/LT, and his replacement could become the starting LT.

    Championships are built on the line play not at QB and FS.
