Jamison Crowder: Our offense can still be explosive

Quarterback Kirk Cousins got the franchise tag again this year, but he lost a couple of his most frequent targets during free agency.

Wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon each left the Redskins to sign with other teams, taking 135 catches, 2,046 yards and seven touchdowns with them. Terrelle Pryor has arrived as a free agent and the team has high hopes that 2016 first-round pick Josh Doctson can be healthy and productive, but the changes may have some wondering if the team can duplicate its offensive success from the last two seasons.

Wide receiver Jamison Crowder believes that they could be even better this time around.

“It can still be very explosive, like the previous years I’ve been here,” Crowder said, via ESPN.com. “Pryor put up big numbers with the Browns, and Doctson, everyone is anxious to see what he brings to the table. I have faith in him that he’ll be a huge weapon, and [tight ends] Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. The offense can still be explosive, if not more than it was last year.”

The Redskins were third in yards last year and 12th in points, so closing that gap would be a step in the right direction. Explosiveness is one way to do that, but scoring touchdowns on more than 45 percent of their trips to the red zone would also be a pretty good place to start showing that things remain well on offense.

  1. This young man is very impressive. High football IQ, agility, explosiveness and hands. His first season he took the slot position, his second, he took snaps from Desean Jackson.

  2. they lost some talent in De Jax and Garcon.

    I liked the way Crowder played when he had the opportunity to start.

    Doctson would need to pick it up some, they are probably expecting him to

    With Prior as a number 2 or 3 wide receiver

    I still like the Redskins weapons.

    Id be a happy Cousins fantasy owner with the weapons he has.

    What I dont like is their options at running back.

    it dont matter to Cousins to much.

  3. I live about 30 minutes away from where he plays most of his games. And I still had no idea who he was.

  4. The second and third preseason games will actually be important to the Redskins to get on the same page offensively. Not just a couple of toss away games to get second and third team players game film.

    Sooo, you don’t follow football? He’s not an obscure player, bud. He had 847 yards and 7 touchdowns last year. If you don’t know who he is you probably don’t know who the majority of NFL receivers are.
