What both were gifted in those years was a very solid line in front of them. However there is a significant difference between Jackson, Garcon (both gone) and Reed to (the admittedly breaking out) Mathews, Sharpe and Delanie Walker.

(Rightly or wrongly) it may well be these types of comparisons that have kept Washington from pulling the trigger.
