Latest Josh Wilson Items
DeAngelo Hall figures to start for the Redskins in 2014. But what about Josh WIlson?
There was nowhere for Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson to hide. Assigned for much of the night to cover San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who has four inches and 30 pounds on him, Wilson was beaten on consecutive plays in the first quarter, the second a 19-yard touchdown pass to Boldin. Early in the second quarter, tight end Vernon Davis also beat Wilson for a 40-yard catch. That play led to a field goal and a 10-0 lead for the 49ers. They were well on the way to an easy 27-6 victory over Washington at FedEx Field.
Forget even about the start of the season. Meriweather hopes to be doing drills with his teammates by the start of training camp. If he is, the veteran will be the centerpiece of a secondary that could include a few rookies and a much different look than last year.
Washington is scheduled to pick Friday in the second and third rounds (51st and 85th overall). The club's greatest needs are in the defensive secondary. We take a look at some players who could fill those needs Friday, according to top draft analysts.
The Redskins have won three games in a row and suddenly look like contenders. But the players made one thing clear: They have not accomplished anything yet.
DeAngelo Hall is not a quarterback, and Eli Manning is not a rocket scientist. That much was clear Wednesday when the former Pro Bowl cornerback and the reigning Super Bowl MVP traded barbs while continuing the post-mortem of Manning's 77-yard touchdown pass that lifted the New York Giants to a 27-23 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Mike Shanahan came to his weekly Monday news conference with a mental inventory of everything the Washington Redskins' defense did well a day earlier in their 27-23 loss to the New York Giants.
The Washington Redskins will try out kickers Tuesday in the wake of Billy Cundiff's recent inaccurate field-goal attempts, coach Mike Shanahan said.
When Washington Redskins cornerbacks DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson line up on Sunday and peer across the line of scrimmage into the backfield, they'll see one of the last quarterbacks a maligned secondary would want to face.
