It’s that time of the week again.
Let’s look back over who you, the Redskins Blog faithful, predicted would excel against the Indianapolis Colts in Saturday’s preseason matchup, as well as who you voted as the MVR(edskin).
For the second straight week, we had some great interaction on these polls.
The first poll, posted before the game, gave you readers a chance to predict who you thought would shine against the Colts.
Here’s how the vote turned out:
For the second straight week, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III topped this particular poll. Because Saturday’s game against the Colts — a 31-17 win for the Redskins — was being billed as the “No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup” between Griffin III — the second overall pick in April’s NFL Draft and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck — the first overall pick in April — it’s no surprise that you Redskins fans thought Griffin III would rise to the occasion. And Griffin III turned in a solid performance Saturday, completing 11-of-17 passes for 74 yards and a touchdown pass to Santana Moss.
Here’s how the rest of the candidates performed against the Colts on Saturday:
– RB Tim Hightower: 5 carries for 28 yards (5.6 yards per carry; long of 18 yards)
– RB Alfred Morris: 14 carries, 107 yards, TD (7.6 YPC; long of 24 yards)
– OLB Ryan Kerrigan: 2 tackles, 0.5 sacks, 1 quarterback hit
– DE Adam Carriker: 2 tackles
The second poll, posted after the game, asked you to name your Most Valuable Redskins player. Here’s how that came out:
In a game where many thought the passing game would be highlighted, it was actually the rookie Morris who stole the show on the ground. He made a statement that he could be a strong candidate for the starting job at running back when the Redskins open their season Sept. 9 at New Orleans.
Thanks again for your participation, and we’ll be back tomorrow with the polls for the Redskins/Buccaneers preseason game.
