JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The (0-1) Jaguars are on the road again in week two of the NFL regular season against another NFC Eastern division team, the Washington Redskins. "Kind of similar to last week, but we are going to have to play better for sixty minutes, " said Jags offensive lineman Zane Beadles.
The Jags lost their NFL opener last Sunday to Philadelphia 34-17 to drop to 11-9 all time in the first game of the season. Washington also lost to Houston 17-6, but the Jags know that the Redskins are capable. "They have a lot of little fast guys on offense, " said Jags defensive back Winston Guy, "and they also have RGIII".
Robert Griffin III ran for only 2 yards last week and is working at becoming more of a pocket passer, but has been more ineffective since he stopped running. Paul Posluszny who last week recorded his 1,000th career NFL tackle says you still have to be aware of the Washington qb. Roy Miller the Jags defensive tackle says there are a lot of ups and downs in an NFL season "even when you are winning" and so its important to focus at the task at hand.
As for the offense, Quarterback Chad Henne says he has no problem "ripping" it downfield as his coaches would like. "If that's what they call, then we will try to execute the play, " said Henne.
