Handing out labels following Skins games. This time a 38-20 loss at Green Bay, and it wasn’t even that close. Hey, at least Dallas and Philly lost.
Ryan Kerrigan — More QB pressure, as evidenced by two early sacks. Seems to be the only defender that’s worth a shit
Alfred Morris — Didn’t fumble and ran for 107 on 13 carries.
Pierre Garcon — Eight catches for 143 yards and a nice TD. Is a baller.
Jordan Reed — First NFL touchdown. Playing more than I expected
Kevin Durant – The world’s biggest Redskins fan. Literally.
Mike Shanahan — Two games, two times getting blown out in the first half. Problem is, this week they didn’t even really pick themselves up off the mat.
Jim Haslett — Had no idea how to stop the Packers from moving the ball at will, and I think that’s an understatement.
Kyle Shanahan – No idea how to move the ball consistently. Couldn’t convert a third down. At least when it counted.
Brandon Meriweather – Knocked Eddie Lacy out, then knocked himself out. Poor form both times. Also slipped on an earlier play to give up Randall Cobb’s long TD.
Josh Morgan — Dropped a pass on a fourth-and-5, turned it into an INT.
Sav Rocca — Twenty-five-yard punt to start. Averaged 36.8 for the game.
John Potter — His lone FG attempt was wiiide right. Not that it mattered.
Special teams in general — Penalties galore from E.J. Biggers, Logan Paulsen, Nick Sundberg (two on one play!), Niles Paul, etc.
David Amerson — Burnt by Jordy Nelson and then didn’t tackle him. Luckily Nelson was ruled down by contact. Oh and Amerson committed defensive PI on the play.
London Fletcher — It’s weird to not hear his name all day.
Will Montgomery – Called for a heel-back block. I don’t even know what that is. Also called for grabbing a facemask.
Fred Davis — Non-factor.
Michael Strahan — His halftime commentary: “[The Packers] are kinda making RGIII look like R … 2 … D … 2.”
Fox – There was an extended portion of the second quarter where every player in the ticker was named Griffin (e.g., Tony Griffin, Dez Griffin, etc.).
The Lambeau Leap — Today’s leaps were joyless pursuits, made out of obligation. It was kind of sad in a way.
We will figure it out We work too hard not to #HTTR

Robert Griffin III – Looks like he’s running on molasses out there. On pace for 5,000 yards passing!
DeAngelo Hall — Gave up Jordy Nelson’s first TV. Forced a James Jone fumble that turned into a touchback.
Santana Moss — Nice garbage-time TD grab that didn’t really look like a TD.
