Handing out labels thanks to the Skins 7-6 preseason win over Buffalo, with a little help from my friends Matt Terl, JP Finlay and Jack Kogod.
Robert Griffin III — The only portion of this game I was able to watch was a flawless touchdown drive orchestrated with ease. So, yeah, winner. Terl’s two cents: “RG3 [is a winner], partially for doing solidly but mainly just for not collapsing in on himself like a dying star.” Peter King has more.
Pierre Garcon — Looked good out there, scoring a TD while wearing fangs. Could’ve done without the frontflip, though.
Trent Williams — Played well and emerged healthy after an X-ray.
The Nats — Again. (Beast Mode!)
Evan Royster — Fumbled.
Antwaan Randle El — I’ve been told he was pretty much the worst sideline reporter in NFL history, a history which includes Eric Dickerson.
Everyone who had to listen to Joe Theismann — Sorry, guys.
Rex Grossman — Just on general principle (and 2-10 passing).
Replacement officials — Apparently they didn’t do so hot either.
ESPN.com — Somehow confused RGIII and Cedric Grffin (see above).
Kirk Cousins — He exists, and is already better than John Beck. “Looks backup-y,” says Kogod.
The fourth-quarter defense — Terl: “Is it just me, or is the fourth-quarter Redskins defense the same guys who were starting two years ago? That seems … good? But retroactively bad?”
