Redskins Run Wildcat With Brandon Banks As Quarterback

It's been said that Brandon Banks is a game-changer. He's probably the only player on the Washington Redskins who could be described that way.

↵

As such, the Redskins have been looking for new and creative ways to get Banks involved in the offense. And so Banks lined up under center as the quarterback for two plays on Washington's first drive of the game.

↵

Banks had practiced the Wildcat formation previously to help the Redskins' defense prepare for quick and run-happy opponents like Michael Vick, but never before did the team seem intent on using the Wildcat in real game situations.

↵

The formation worked with limited success. Banks ran the ball from the Wildcat both times, and gained just three yards on each carry.

↵

The Redskins have yet to return to the Wildcat formation since the first drive. Which is really a shame. We'd love to see Banks attempt a pass to Donovan McNabb, who was lined up as a wide receiver on each play.
