Handing out labels after Skins games. This one a 24-23 loss to Dallas.
Pierre Garcon — Monster game (11 catches, 144 yards) to break Monk’s 29-year-old record for catches in a season. Cousins was looking to him first over and over again. The catch while laying down was particularly inspired.
London Fletcher — Picked up six more tackles in his last home game, and wasn’t embarrassed by Jason Witten once. The diving, flipping attempt he made at DeMarco Murray during the final goal-line stand was absurd. Feel bad about that outcome, though.
DeAngelo Hall – Picked Romo. Loves playing against Dez/Dallas.
Kai Forbath — Made three out of three field goals, including one from 47.
Aldrick Robinson — Made a diving 3rd-and-9 catch in crunch time.
Nick Williams — Looks who’s returning kicks now. Averaged 24.7 per.

E.J. Biggers — Had a free shot at Romo on a safety blitz, but Romo faked him to the ground and calmly threw a TD to Dez Bryant.
Kirk Cousins — Sloppy in the red zone, sloppy on the last drive. Had some accuracy issues too.
Santana Moss — False started inside the 10. Kinda dropped what ended up being Cousins’ INT. Caught two passes for 13 yards.
Mike Shanahan — Commenters in our open thread were not big fans of him calling timeout with the clock stopped just before the two-minute warning.
Jim Haslett — Interesting choice to not pressure a hobbling Tony Romo AT ALL while Romo limped his way to victory.
Sav Rocca – First punt was returned inside his own 5. His second and third punts were muff-shanks that took lucky bounces. Needs to PSGO.
Keith Burns — The kick return unit committed a block in the back on their last return, when they really needed the field position.
Perry Riley — Got lost on DeMarco Murray’s game-winning TD.
Brian Orakpo — That groin injury did not look pleasant.
Erin Andrews — Why was she working this game?
The FedEx Field turf — Still super-shitty.

Josh Wilson — Made an awesome play to force a fumble early, made an awful play to slip and allow a deep pass late (see above).
Ryan Kerrigan – Picked up a sack for the second straight week, but that was about it.
Alfred Morris — Got carries (24) but didn’t do much with them (88 yards).
The FedEx Field experience — I swear I saw Romo quieting the crowd when Dallas had the ball inside their own 10 during the first quarter. It did get loud late, though. I don’t know; it’s hard to tell on TV.
