How You Voted: Redskins-Packers

It’s that time of the week once again where Redskins Blog fanatics get a chance to see whether or not they have a future career in the physic palm reading business.

Each week we ask you before the game to vote on which player will have the best performance and which unit will shine brightest against the opposition. Last week of course, it was the Green Bay Packers. While the Redskins suffered a second consecutive bitter loss, there were a few standout performances of note, especially those who were on the ballot.

Here are the poll results along with how they performed in the game:

Unit

Ahhh one-for-one so far, Redskins fans. After a very un-Alfred Morris-like performance last week against the Philadelphia Eagles, No. 46 had a bounce back game and rushed for 107 yards on only 13 carries. His career-high 8.2 yards per carry was bolstered by not one, but two 32-yard runs. Those two were tied for second longest runs of his NFL career. After leading the league in rushing last season, the Redskins are currently 19th in rushing at 91 yards per game—having to abandon their strength in the second half in valiant comeback attempts. When they solve the first half conundrum, expect that number to skyrocket.

Player

Well the ground game couldn’t have taken home Week 2 honors without their workhorse leading the way. The aforementioned Morris and quarterback Robert Griffin III tied in the vote for top honors.

Griffin III, who was playing in only his second game since offseason knee surgery, once again threw for over 300 yards—a majority of which were in the second half when he tried to jumpstart the offense after a disappointing first 30 minutes. He connected with Pierre Garcon, Jordan Reed and Santana Moss—each for their first touchdowns of the young campaign. His final quarterback rating was 104.2.

Ryan Kerrigan—the man, the myth and the legend. Wow has the third-year linebacker really impressed so far. He enjoyed Hawaii that much. On the Packers first drive of the game they got all the way down to the nine yard line to set up 1st and goal. On 1st and goal—Kerrigan took down Aaron Rodgers for the first time in his career. Most would be satisfied with a takedown of one of the NFL’s best. Not No. 91. The 6-4, 260-pound outside linebacker was still hungering for more. On the very next play, he bull rushed through the Packer offensive line and slammed Rodgers down.  Kerrigan finished the game with five tackles.

While he didn’t replicate his two touchdown performance against the Eagles, it doesn’t mean Leonard Hankerson wasn’t in the fold. The University of Miami product caught the first ball of the game (18 yards), set up another first down in the third quarter and got the Redskins within striking distance for the second touchdown of the game.

The Redskins return to FedExField this Sunday to take on the Lions. Be sure to check out the pregame polls before heading out to the game and as always, thank you for your participation.
