Redskins safeties coach Steve Jackson has coached or played the position in the NFL for all but one year beginning in 1991. And Jackson says that his guy, LaRon Landry, is better than Pittsburgh all-everything safety Troy Polamalu, who comes to town with the world champion Steelers on Saturday.

“I’d take LaRon over [Polamalu], any day,” Jackson said. “They would probably rather have Polamalu because he does do the things like a linebacker with the blitzing … But when you watch him play true free safety, it’s not even close in my humble opinion as far who the better safety is.”
