Handing out labels following Skins games. Today, a 45-21 loss in Denver.
Jordan Reed — Added another eight catches for 90 yards as he continues to make us forget about Fred Davis while simultaneously reminding us of 23-year-old Fred Davis.
Alfred Morris — He leads the NFL in yards per attempt at 5.2; finished with 93 at 5.5 per rush yesterday. Completely eliminating him from the gameplan in the second half sure was a neat idea.
DeAngelo Hall — Scored his third touchdown of the season on a gift pick-6 and made an incredible interception after the game was already out of hand.
Ryan Kerrigan — Forced a Peyton Manning fumble that led to a short field and a Skins touchdown. It also led to Orakpo finally drawing a holding call … on Peyton Manning.
Kyle Shanahan — From the time the Skins were up 21-7 to the brutal end, he called five total run plays for Morris despite the running game being the only thing that worked up to that point. Between that and a complete lack of any bootlegs or rollouts, he turned the Skins offense into a straight drop-back passing game, which worked out well.
Mike Shanahan — Fun homecoming.
Robert Griffin III — Either the Broncos previously awful secondary suddenly became impenetrable or RGIII wasn’t seeing the field. Because most of the time he had all fucking day to throw. Ended 15-for-30 with 132 yards and two INTs. Took about a dozen hits, most of which were of his own doing. Disappointing after he looked like he was back to 2012 RGIII against the Bears.
Santana Moss — Dropped one of RGIII’s few perfect passes in the endzone.
Aldrick Robinson — Dropped a huge third down pass. No idea what he contributes to this team.
Kirk Cousins — Poor guy. Sees his first action in an impossible situation and throws two picks. At least it’ll keep the mouth-breathers who want him to start at bay.
Jim Hasslett — Defense contained Peyton extremely well up until Kyle decided to just call a bunch of three-and-outs.
Sav Rocca — Four punts inside the 20 and kept the ball away from Trindon Holliday. He also punted one 15 yards from their own 20.
Pierre Garcon — Had seven catches, also had some drops of his own.
