Handing out labels following Skins games, this time a 17-13 loss in San Francisco.
Alfred Morris — Topped 100 yards rushing for the first time this season, which is nice.
Tress Way — Pinned two or three inside the 10 and averaged 47 per. Team MVP.
Jim Haslett — It brings me no joy to slap the “winner” tag on Haz, and it’s no great feat to hold the 49ers to 17, but his squad did it despite being down to Santana Moss at cornerback. (Really.)
Greg Ducre — I’ll be honest, I’d never heard of him before he came in and almost immediately intercepted Colin Kaepernick. (Note: He’s now tied for the team lead in interceptions. With one.)
Keenan Robinson — I don’t trust many Redskins, but I do trust Keenan Robinson.
Ryan Kerrigan — Racked up a sack, giving him 8.5 on the season. This may be the defense’s best (only?) vanity stat.
Brandon Meriweather and Trent Murphy — Each forced a fumble. Those were the good times.
CBS — I approve of Kevin Harlan and Rich Gannon. Much improved over what we usually get with Fox.
Robert Griffin III — Aside from turnovers and toughness, he was terrible in every aspect. It’s hard to see a good outcome from here.
The offensive line — The combo of RGIII’s skittishness/indecisiveness/unawareness and this line’s inability to conduct itself at a professional level is lethal indeed.
Jay Gruden — It’s a very real possibility that Gruden isn’t the offensive coordinator that Kyle Shanahan is or the head coach that Mike Shanahan was. He did win his first challenge, though!
DeSean Jackson — Two catches for 39 yards isn’t “epic shit”; it’s just shit.
Dan Snyder — 50 years young today. Only ~34 more to go!
Pierre Garcon — Who knew 88 could throw the ball 60-plus yards?
