“I would like it to be mine down in, down out. That’s what you want to play for,” he said. “You want to play your best, and I would hope my best is capable of being a No. 1 guy down in, down out.”
Wilson agreed: It does matter who comes out of the tunnel as a starter, but earning that job is just the beginning. Given the Redskins‘ need to tighten up on defense, the pressure is on the next men up.
“We’ve got a great defense; we’ve got a great personnel,” Wilson said. “We don’t need anybody to be a hero, that’s a good thing about it. As bad as we’ve played, I wouldn’t say we’re struggling, but it’s definitely fixable and it’s our own. It’s something that we can do.”
