The Washington Redskins have become something of a doughnut of a football team: They have a hole in their middle -- a dearth of the four- to six-year players that are the heart of most successful football teams.The Redskins have only three players -- running backs Brian Mitchell and Ricky Ervins, and defensive tackle Bobby Wilson -- left from general manager Charley Casserly's first three drafts (1990-1992), and Ervins is a free agent who might depart.Casserly, though, isn't discouraged as he heads into his sixth draft as general manager Saturday and Sunday, though he faces as much pressure as any executive in the league.

RB Stephen Davis Davis was the main reason the Redskins went to the playoffs for the first time since 1992. He rushed for 1,405 yards and averaged 4.8 yards per carry. He scored 17 touchdowns and took tremendous pressure off new quarterback Brad Johnson. Davis has depth behind him in Adrian Murrell and Skip Hicks, but there is a significant talent gap. The Redskins could afford to be without Davis for only a few games and definitely not for any playoff games. He hobbled off last season with a high ankle sprain in the playoff loss to the Bucs.

A one-bedroom apartment in Maryland will run about $700 a month, the students were told - plus, there are car payments, entertainment expenses, and insurance and utility bills. "Ladies and gentlemen, I am telling you the truth. I am not lying, embellishing or exaggerating," said Magellan Westbrook, 35, ticking off living expenses to a classroom of ninth-graders at Milford Mill Academy this week. "These are true numbers, and I'm not done yet ... because we still have to eat." That's $400 more on the chalkboard list.

It's a history thing Yesterday's 27-7 loss to the Texans dropped the Jaguars to 3-3, but it shouldn't have come as a surprise. The Texans were 4-4 against the Jaguars coming into the season, and knocked them out of a playoff spot with a Week 17 upset in 2004. Chester Taylor's day Could the Ravens use running back Chester Taylor? You bet. He had a 95-yard touchdown run for the Vikings and 169 rushing yards in a 31-13 upset of the Seahawks. But it's no sure thing that Taylor could have ignited the Ravens' tepid ground game.

What's new: The Michael Westbrook soap opera is heating up again as he prepares to come back from his latest knee injury. The team's most talented wide receiver and No. 1 draft pick out of Colorado in 1995 has taken some heat around Washington lately for what some consider a lack of toughness by not playing with pain. He missed five games with knee and ankle injuries in his rookie year and has already been out of action three games this season with two torn posterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee.

Try to sell a house in this down market, and you might start fantasizing about what-ifs. For instance: What if you could tap into the large pool of people who, just like you, would buy if only they could first sell? What if you could find someone with a place you want who in turn wants your place? Actually, you can. You can give it a shot, anyway. It's called "house trading." "It's a very viable alternative if it's a tough market, if you're literally unable to sell your home," says Danielle Babb, an author of real estate books, including Finding Foreclosures.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins wide receiver Albert Connell will not start Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Interim coach Terry Robiskie decided to bench Connell yesterday in favor of 38-year-old Irving Fryar. Connell was held without a catch in Sunday's 32-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Robiskie originally did not plan to make any changes to the lineup. But Connell's erratic play all season mixed with the poor team effort in Sunday's game, left Robiskie with little choice but to make a statement to the players he hopes to coach next season.
