Sunday the Redskins could take a wait-and-see-approach on splitting reps. In Jackson’s perfect world, he gets the nod moving forward.

“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.”
