How You Voted: Chicago Game Polls

You faithful Redskins Blog readers really put a smile on my face this weekend.

We had a ton of participation in the two reader polls I posted — one before Saturday’s game against the Chicago Bears and one afterwards — giving us further proof that the Redskins have the best fans in the world.

But how did those polls turn out?

The first poll gave you readers a chance to predict who you thought would shine against the Bears.

Here’s how the vote turned out:

It comes as no surprise that rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III earned 45 percent of the vote in this poll. After all, he was following up his 4-for-6, 70-yard, one touchdown performance in limited action against the Buffalo Bills in the first game of the preseason. Against the Bears, Griffin III finished 5-for-8 with 49 yards.

Here’s how the rest of the candidates performed against the Bears Saturday:

- WR Pierre Garçon: 2 catches (3 targets), 13 yards
WR Leonard Hankerson: 1 catch (1 target), 11 yards
CB DeAngelo Hall: Started game at cornerback; no tackles or interceptions
OLB Brian Orakpo: One tackle registered before injuring shoulder and being taken out of game

Kudos to commenter “mralfredepps” who guessed safety Madieu Williams. Williams finished the contest with a game-high-tying six tackles and one pass defended.

The second poll, posted after the game, asked you readers to name your Most Valuable Redskin player. Here’s how that came out:

Again, no surprise here. Quarterback Kirk Cousins had one heck of a game and showed just how much he’s progressing as a rookie in this system.

Thanks again for your participation. There will be plenty of opportunities to chime in here as the season goes on.
