First-team problems: Redskins offense still has a long way to go

It took a half of football — six possessions in all — for Gruden to finally see a semblance of what he wanted in Saturday night’s game that the Washington Redskins eventually lost 21-17 .

He made a nice downhill tackle inside the red zone, shedding a block and stopping Packers running back Jamaal Williams for a one-yard gain.

In the second half, McCoy made a great back-shoulder pass to Paul, who did a good job of adjusting to the ball in the air, and hung on for a 16-yard touchdown.

He has worked hard to regain his form after shoulder surgery and this preseason has proved his worth as a tight end while playing in place of an injured Jordan Reed, and as a fullback.

Look for the Redskins to carry four tight ends: Reed, Davis, Paul and it appears rookie Jeremy Sprinkle has a leg up on Derek Carrier for the final spot.
