4.  Desean Jackson no longer lighting up the Redskins defense – Ever since the Redskins passed up drafting Desean Jackson in the second round of the 2008 draft and took Devin Thomas instead, Jackson has been a thorn in the side of Redskins fans.  Whether it be a long punt  return or a long bomb for a touchdown, Desean Jackson would always seem to make big play to hurt the Redskins.  But it’s exciting to know that won’t be happening again any time soon.
