Five things we learned from the Washington Redskins blowout win over the Jags

The Redskins looked excellent in all phases on Sunday.

Not all new ideas are good ones.I know many of you remember "New Coke".  And if you don't remember it, that's OK, it was terrible.  For those who need a little history lesson, back in 1985, Coke thought that perhaps they could jump start sales by making Coke even sweeter.  Really?  You bet.  It wasn't good enough that Coke is so acidic it could be used...

Jordan Reed cannot stay injury free. Niles Paul cannot hold onto the ball in the red zone. Reed was injured when the Redskins drafted him, so it is sinking in that is what to expect. Potential on the bench is a terrible thing to waste. Paul’s drive-killing strip-fumble on the Houston 9 masked an otherwise good day for him. He caught all four balls targeted to him for 84 yards,...
