Redskins-Bears Winners & Losers

This is a pretty lackluster effort, so feel free to share your own.


Kirk Cousins— Put some numbers on the board in the second half. Bears broadcaster Jim Miller even mentioned something about a QB controversy, but I assume he was drunk. Whatever, trade value!

Aldrick Robinson — Nice showing for the second-year receiver.

Dezmon Briscoe — Hey, he caught six TD for Tampa Bay last year.

Brandon Banks — Took a 91-yard punt return to the house, making this the third straight preseason he’s done that, I think. Also, didn’t see any time at WR, I don’t think.

Terrence Austin — Made a key block on Banks’ TD return and then saved a TD on the ensuing kickoff.


Brian Orakpo and Brandon Meriweather — Both went down with injuries, each of which was described as a strain. Pray for Orakpo, especially.

DeAngelo Hall — Played some safety. Also missed a tackle that cost the Skins like a bajillion yards.

Skins secondary — Torched on the opening drive by Cutler and co.


Robert Griffin III — Really didn’t do much. Was under pressure, avoided mistakes for the most part (aside from that blind-side fumble) and made a couple of nice plays with his arm and his feet.

Niles Paul — Dropped an RGIII pass for the second straight week, but got it together in the second half.

Alfred Morris — Started strong and kinda petered out. Got a lot of carries, or at least it seemed like a lot.

Perry Riley — Lost his jock on Michael Bush’s TD. Picked up a sack or two.

Josh Wilson — Dropped a pick, Carlos Rogers-style. Looked good in coverage, Carlos Rogers-style.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    Winner: Richard Crawford

    Solid in coverage, blitzed from the slot all night. He was damn good and he’s pushing for a roster spot.

    I did some pretty extensive research, Steinz.

    Glad you mentioned Crawford, Joe Z. I should’ve labeled the starting O-line as losers, too, because much of the first half was just brutal.
