New coordinator, additions give Redskins' defense a boost

New Redskins defensive coordinator Greg Manusky tells his players he doesn't have a crystal ball to always know the right play to call, yet before stepping on the field they have an idea what to expect.

"A lot of pressure," linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. "You look at the install sheets for when we're installing our defense, you see a lot of lines going forward."

Beyond just blitzing more, Washington's defense should be more aggressive under Manusky with the additions of rookie lineman Jonathan Allen, linebacker Ryan Anderson and veteran defensive line coach Jim Tomsula. Throw in the signings of linebacker Zach Brown, safety D.J. Swearinger and defensive linemen Terrell McClain and Stacy McGee, and there's an excitement about the Redskins defense being much better. The unit was ranked 28th in the NFL the past two seasons.
