Redskins-Bears Winners & Losers

This is a pretty lackluster effort, so feel free to share your own.

Winners

Kirk Cousins– Put some numbers on the board in the second half. Bears broadcaster Jim Miller even mentioned something about a QB controversy, but I assume he was drunk. Whatever, trade value!

Aldrick Robinson — Nice showing for the second-year receiver.

Dezmon Briscoe – Hey, he caught six TD for Tampa Bay last year.

Brandon Banks — Took a 91-yard punt return to the house, making this the third straight preseason he’s done that, I think. Also, didn’t see any time at WR, I don’t think.

Terrence Austin — Made a key block on Banks’ TD return and then saved a TD on the ensuing kickoff.

Losers

Brian Orakpo and Brandon Meriweather — Both went down with injuries, each of which was described as a strain. Pray for Orakpo, especially.

DeAngelo Hall – Played some safety. Also missed a tackle that cost the Skins like a bajillion yards.

Skins secondary — Torched on the opening drive by Cutler and co.

Medium

Robert Griffin III – Really didn’t do much. Was under pressure, avoided mistakes for the most part (aside from that blind-side fumble) and made a couple of nice plays with his arm and his feet.

Niles Paul — Dropped an RGIII pass for the second straight week, but got it together in the second half.

Alfred Morris — Started strong and kinda petered out. Got a lot of carries, or at least it seemed like a lot.

Perry Riley — Lost his jock on Michael Bush’s TD. Picked up a sack or two.

Josh Wilson — Dropped a pick, Carlos Rogers-style. Looked good in coverage, Carlos Rogers-style.

  1. Winner: Richard Crawford

    Solid in coverage, blitzed from the slot all night. He was damn good and he’s pushing for a roster spot.

  2. I did some pretty extensive research, Steinz.

    Glad you mentioned Crawford, Joe Z. I should’ve labeled the starting O-line as losers, too, because much of the first half was just brutal.
