The Best and worst of the Washington Redskins 45-41 win over the Chicago Bears. Wide Receiver Aldrick Robinson deserves a Hail this week for coming up with the longest TD reception of the year for the skins. Here are some more success and failures from the Redskins victory.
Hail: RGIII is back – The Redskins QB had his best performance of the season. He ran for 84 yards and did so without hesitation, and he also passed for 298 yards and 2 TD’s.
Fail: More Special Teams fiascos – The special teams gave up an 81 yard punt return to Devin Hester on this play. It made the game closer than it could have been, but luckily, the Redskins still got the win..
Hail: Rookie TE Jordan Reed – The rookie continues his impressive first season as he had 9 receptions for 134 yards, and a TD. Reed is emerging as RGIII’s favorite new target, and will cause problems for defense for the rest of the season.
Fail: More missed tackles - The Redskins defense had kept the dangerous Matt Forte in check for most of the game. But in the second half Forte broke loose for this 50 yard TD run, which kept the Bears in the game.
Hail: Roy Helu Jr.’s three TD’s – Helu Jr. and Alfred Morris are becoming a dangerous tandem at running back. And it seems Helu is back to his 2011 form, as he powered his way to 3 TD’s against the Bears.
Fail: Brandon Meriweather’s hits – Yes, you want your safety to be an enforcer on defense, but now-a-days you have to be smart about it. Meriweather got called for two personal fouls for hitting defenseless receivers, and the Redskins were lucky they didn’t cost them more than yards.
Hail: The Washington Redskins cheerleaders – These ladies always deserve a Hail. Isn’t it obvious why?
