Ex-Redskin Of The Week: Gregg Williams, Defensive Coordinator, New Orleans Saints
Redskins fans kidded Gregg Williams a lot, he of the three G name (second G is for genius, third G is for god). But give the man credit; he can coach some defense. The harder-nosed he was, the more his players seemed to love him. Williams dispatched his Super Bowl defense against a rival Super Bowl contender, the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Saints D did a number on the men of Steel. New Orleans tagged Steeler QB Ben Roethlisberger for three sacks, seven QB hits and an interception. What’s more, they held the Steelers to 10 points and Roethlisberger to a 66.8 QB rating. The 20-10 New Orleans win kept the Saints within half-a-game of Tampa Bay and Atlanta in the race for the NFC South.

Honorable mention goes to ex-Redskin Leigh Torrence who snagged that INT on Roethlisberger.

Ex-Redskin Of The Weak: None
