Gary Fitzgerald, of Redskins.com, reports Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs is comfortable with the team's defensive line. Gibbs said the team did not feel any sense of urgency to add defensive lineman during the draft, and hopes better talent in the secondary will help improve the team's sack totals. "When you look at the overall structure of the defense, what we felt hurt us last year with the pass rush, a lot of it was the coverage. That was the problem for us. With the guys we added at corner [in free agency] and now what we added at safety, hopefully what we can do is play much tighter coverage and much better coverage. It's going to force [quarterbacks] to hold the ball," Gibbs said.

Gary Fitzgerald, of Redskins.com, reports the Washington Redskins are hoping to improve in the red zone in 2007. Last season, the Redskins scored 21 touchdowns in 42 opportunities in the red zone - a 50 percent clip. "I'd sure like to see us have someone make some individual plays and get us in the end zone," head coach Joe Gibbs said. "When the field gets tightened up like that, it takes someone to make a big individual play. I'd say (the red zone) is one area where we haven't run the ball as well as we would have liked, too."
