Handing out labels after Skins games. Today, a 19-11 stinker to San Fran.
Jim Haslett — Considering the offense gave them zero relief with time of possession, field position or, you know, points, the D was pretty impressive.
Graham Gano — Nailed a franchise-record 59-yard FG at the half. Also toe-tapped a beautiful onside kick at the end, regardless of the outcome.
Ryan Kerrigan — Absolutely killed Alex Smith on an early sack.
Brian Orakpo — Picked up a sack as well.
Leonard Hankerson — Caught four passes for 34 yards in his first career start. Also, a two-point conversion.
Jabar Gaffney — Also caught four passes, one for a touchdown.
Keyaron Fox — Made a few nice special teams tackles.
Alex Smith — He is now what we hoped Jason Campbell would become.
David Akers — Nailed a 52-yarder, will never stop tormenting us ever.
Carlos Rogers — Didn’t hear his name all day. Flawless victory.
The uniforms — Both the 49ers and Redskins’ variations were glorious.
Brandon Banks — Decided to field a punt inside his own 5, and dropped it. Later dropped another punt. Loser is not a strong enough word.
Terrence Austin — His day included getting dinged for a 15-yard penalty, fumbling and dropping a fourth-down pass.
John Beck — It seemed that each of his 47 (47!) pass attempts resulted in either Beck a) locking in on a target, b) throwing to the wrong guy or c) checking down. Meaning, it was another bad game for John Beck, and the line wasn’t even that bad this time around. Oh, and Mike Shanahan said afterward, “We’re going to stick with John.” Sweet.
Mike Shanahan — I don’t even know what to say.
Kyle Shanahan — After going scoreless in Toronto/Buffalo, it took Gano’s record-breaking FG to get on the board today, aside from a garbage-time TD. We may hear more about that this week.
Trent Williams — Committed a silly, drive-killing personal foul. Also false started. Is fat.
Rocky McIntosh — Burnt by a no-name fullback for a 30-yard TD. Also was bad at tackling on Braylon Edwards’ 24-yard gainer.
Reed Doughty — Whiffed on Frank Gore, who took it for 27 yards.
Fred Davis — Dropped a pass early, padded his stats late.
Roy Helu — Got the first start of his career, and ran the ball alright (41 yards on 10 carries), but the real story is that he caught 14 passes to break Art Monk’s franchise record in criminal fashion. Also coughed up a crucial fumble in his own territory (next play: touchdown, San Francisco).
