Handing out labels following Skins games. This time a 24-14 loss to Seattle.
Reed Doughty — Twelve tackles and two sacks. Reed Doughty!
London Fletcher — Fifteen tackles and half a sack. Legend.
Perry Riley — Eight tackles and a sack. London Fletcher Jr.
Alfred Morris — Eighty yards on 16 carries. Should’ve been more. Inspired this.
Barry Cofield — Forced Marshawn Lynch to fumble on the goal line.
Logan Paulsen — Catch a couple of passes, including a TD.
Evan Royster — Also caught a TD.
Richard Crawford — Continued to not be Brandon Banks.
Sav Rocca — Four punts, 48.3 per. That was good.
Mike Shanahan — I thought he should’ve pulled RGIII no later than halftime, and the informal poll we conducted on Twitter said the same. Hindsight shows we knew more than the $7m/year head coach, to whom history won’t be kind.
Kyle Shanahan — Orchestrated two straight TD drives right off the bat. Then laid an egg for three straight quarters.
Leonard Hankerson — Showed off serious alligator arms in crunch time.
DeAngelo Hall — Whiffed badly on Lynch’s go-ahead TD run.
Will Montgomery — Had a couple bad snaps, including RGIII’s final play.
Ryan Kerrigan and Rob Jackson— Silent linebackers.
Bryan Kehl — Called for holding on a punt that wasn’t even returned.
FedEx Field — Possibly the worst turf in football.
Trent Dilfer — Blamed RGIII for playing hurt, somehow.
Trent Williams — Shoved Richard Sherman in the face after the game.
Pierre Garcon — Targeted early and caught four passes on six targets for 50 yards, but left the game twice with injuries and didn’t play a factor later on.
Robert Griffin III — The Redskins were here because of him, but he was nowhere near well, let alone well enough to play. May he come back in full, showing up and showing out.
