Washington Redskins Morning Clips: 7/9

A morning roundup of what the local and national media have to say about the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, July 9, 2013.

--The Washington Redskins focus group got more attention this week, as the questions reportedly being asked of fans were made available online.

--With injuries plaguing the Redskins' linebackers last season, the success of the unit in 2013 is understandably dependent on good health. A closer look at the unit.

--How do the Redskins take a major step forward on defense? By creating more pressure and closing more running lanes along the defensive line.

--This offseason has focused a cornucopia of news about the internal pressures facing Robert Griffin III in 2013, both physical and psychological. But how will he avoid the external pressure of the opposing team's pass rush? Find out here.

--In Week 4, the Redskins continued their success on the road, beating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium and securing Robert Griffin III's first 2-minute drive to victory.

--Washington receiver Pierre Garcon showed that he has the ability to be a top-notch target, but does he fit the Redskins' need of a true No. 1?

--With training camp a little over two weeks away, here is a review of the left cornerback competition, expected to be headlined by veteran DeAngelo Hall.

--Quarterback Pat White was expected to be retained as a fill-in for Robert Griffin III who has the ability to prepare the defense for mobile quarterbacks. But if RG3 returns early and roster spots are tight, does the team have a place for White?

--Redskins great Joe Theismann spoke to the media following the grand opening the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center in Richmond, Va. He endorsed the decision to move camp away from the facilities, saying it was critical for camaraderie. He also predicted that this team has Super Bowl aspirations with the talent to back it up.

--Local media commended the pageantry of the grand opening, noting the star power on hand for the opening of the $10 million facility.

--Training camp remains in Redskins country but moves to another location in Virginia. Do YOU plan to visit training camp in Richmond?

--Redskins legend Joe Theismann also predicted that fellow quarterback Robert Griffin III will be up and running by Week 1.

--The Redskins don't face the Vikings until Week 10, but here is an early preview of the offseason changes happening in Minnesota.

--Running back should be one of the more interesting preseason competitions to watch play out, but the depth chart could look dramatically different if the rookies factor into the equations.
