Handing out labels following Skins games. This time a 24-16 loss at Philly. Note: Thanks to Fox cutting to a “a more competitive game” I only saw a) the Eagles going up 24-0 and b) the Redskins’ final, futile drive. Fun!
Alfred Morris — Did his damage in the first half. Finished with 93 yards. Very FroMo.
Brian Orakpo – Got a sack and a half. Seems worth mentioning.
Darrell Young — Didn’t see it happen so I have no idea how DY was able to score a 62-yard TD.
Aldrick Robinson — Scored a 41-yard TD of his own. At least I can imagine this one.
Mike Shanahan — Swept by Philly. Alone in last place in the NFC East, at the moment. Maybe cool it on the extension talk this week?
Kyle Shanahan — Shutout in the first half. Again. Great line by deepvalue from the Open Thread: “Skins offense can stack up with anyone as long as they are facing a prevent defense.”
Jim Haslett — Gave up 24 points in the two-plus quarters I saw.
Robert Griffin III — Completed 48.6 percent of his passes. Heaved that godawful INT to end the game. Out come the wolves.
Roy Helu — Whiffed on Connor Barwin, who then nailed RGIII for a fumble-sack. Also fumbled on third-and-forever.
Nick Williams — His first career punt return should’ve been fielded at the 10; it was downed at the 2. He let another one go later; it rolled into a 70-yarder and was downed at the 4. Holy shit.
Sav Rocca — Six punts, 37.2 yards per. How ’bout them Redskins?
Trent Williams — Beat by Trent Cole for a sack or two.
Tyler Polumbus — Does not strike me as an NFL-caliber right tackle.
David Amerson — Outmatched one-on-one with Riley Cooper.
Whoever cleans the team bus — Because it got egged.
LeSean McCoy — Just let the guy wave his flag.
Sunday Ticket subscribers– I pay for this.
Santana Moss — Made a 28-yard catch on 3rd-and-25, so there’s that.
The refs — Who knows what Trent Williams is ranting about here.
