to Saturday during the season Joe Theismann Jersey , and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Redskins special teams were pretty bad in 2017.A commitment made by Jay Gruden this offseason to improving special teams through player selection and giving ST Coach Ben Kotwica more of a voice in roster building seems to have paid off for most of the 2018 season.While the Redskins return game hasn’t been anything special, Dustin Hopkins has been a reliable field goal kicker who has contributed to Redskin victories, kickoff coverage has seemed, to me, to be a bit above average, and Tress Way’s punting has been probably the best in the NFL, backed up by very good work from the punt coverage unit, who have contributed a lot to Way’s ability to down more than 30 punts inside the opponents’ 20 yard line without a single touchback.The Jaguars game did not see the Redskins do well on special teams Sonny Jurgensen Jersey , with a partially blocked punt, a badly muffed punt return, and a punt return by the Jaguars for a touchdown.Jay Gruden talked a little bit about that in his press conference this week:One fly in the ointment for the Redskins special teams is that the team’s long-time long snapper, Nick Sundberg, went on IR just prior to the Jaguars game.His replacement, Andrew East, is probably a pretty good long-snapper, but finding same-for-same replacement in Week 15 of the season is tough at any position. During the broadcast of the Jaguars game Doug Williams Jersey , the game analyst discussed the difference in velocity of East’s snaps versus that of Sundberg following the partial block of the Tress Way punt.He likely got that information from Jay in the pre-game discussions, as this is what Jay had to say about East on Monday: Among the changes in Washington for the 2019 season is the addition of two former defensive coordinators to the defensive coaching staff.The moves to hire inside linebackers coach Rob Ryan and defensive backs coach Ray Horton came after the team took its time confirming that defensive coordinator Greg Manuksy would return for a third season. That pause elicited speculation that Manusky might be fired and the presence of in-house replacements — former 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula is also on hand — does little to shoot down the notion that a change could be made.Head coach Jay Gruden tried to downplay that aspect of the moves and Manusky said Wednesday that “everything is good” as the staff works to get on the same page.“I don’t think it’s any balancing act,” Manusky said, via the . “It’s just trying to learn the defensive calls, the defensive signals that we have, and try to put it into terms they’ve used over their career.”Washington’s biggest move of free agency came on the defensive side of the ball when they signed safety Landon Collins and things should stay in balance if his arrival helps produce a strong performance by the unit come September. Anything else will likely invite further speculation about Manusky’s job security.
