Fred Davis saw only one pass come his way against Dallas.
As well as Garcon is playing, no other member of the receiving corps is doing enough to damage defenses. Without rookie tight end Jordan Reed, there are simply not enough competent weapons around Garcon.
In some cases, talented playmakers are being wasted. Reed's replacement, Fred Davis, saw only one pass come his way for the second straight week.
It makes no sense not to use an athletic "move" tight end like Davis more often. The same is true for running back Roy Helu Jr.
He is a very effective receiver out of the backfield, although you would hardly know it. Helu received just two passes against the Cowboys and has just 27 catches this season.
That is a chronic waste of one of the team's most threatening weapons with the ball in his hands. Not using players like Davis and Helu more often makes even less sense, considering the lack of a credible second wide receiver.
Veterans Santana Moss and Josh Morgan have been left on the sideline for most of the season. Admittedly, neither has impressed with the limited opportunities they have had.
Young players like Aldrick Robinson and Nick Williams are either ignored or struggle to capitalize when they get their chances.
That failure to capitalize plagued most of the Redskins' pass-catchers in Week 16. Aside from Garcon, nobody could make the first man miss and produce extra yards.
While the defense needs the most work this offseason, more pieces have to be added to the offense.
