Handing out labels following every Washington game. This time, a 41-10 win over Jacksonville.
Kirk Cousins. Made sports talk radio callers the happiest people in the D.C. area this morning. Completed 66 percent of his passes for 250 yards and a pair of TDs with no turnovers. This happened against the Jaguars. This Sunday against Philly will be an actual test.
Ryan Kerrigan. Four sacks, generally unstoppable all day.
The Running Game. Morris/Redd/Helu combined for 128 yards and three touchdowns with Griffin and Andre Roberts throwing in another 41 yards. As a team, they averaged 4.5 yards per carry with 191 total on the ground.
Jason Hatcher. Seemed to be in the backfield all game, had 1.5 sacks of his own.
Chris Baker. Played great at his natural nose tackle position, danced even better after the game.
Jim Haslett. His defense allowed 148 total yards and sacked Henne 10 times. But he’s here mostly for his tentative Dad At A Wedding dance moves in the Baker video above.
Niles Paul. Hey, isn’t this the fella they drafted four years ago?
Ryan Grant. Played a bigger role when DeSean went down, had five receptions, continues to seem very promising.
Special Teams. No kicks were blocked!
Robert Griffin III. If we never get a full season out of him again, that incredible run in 2012 will still have made it all worth it. It seems we’re doomed to be sitting around in 20 years saying “what if” whenever his name comes up.
DeSean Jackson. Might not be able to play in his return to Philly, which would be a big bummer.
Pierre Garcon. Only one catch, ending his streak of like a million games with 5+ catches that CBS kept referencing.
DeAngelo Hall. A completely unnecessary personal foul when he came flying into the pile head-first. Also got burned after he, in typical fashion, bit hard on a double move for what should’ve been six for the Jags had the receiver not dropped the easiest touchdown of his life.
Jay Gruden. He got his first win, his offense was obviously productive (although again, Jaguars), but Mike Wise reported Monday that Gruden wanted Cousins to run his system all along. Which raises two concerns: 1) Why hire someone whose offense isn’t a fit for RGIII?; 2) Your offense needs some serious updating if you’d rather have Kirk Cousins run it than a healthy RGIII.
