Redskins Week 4 Review – Player ratings Vs Eagles

This author will rate on a sliding scale from 10 to 0. For a player to get a 10, they must have a “Doug Williams in the Super Bowl” type performance. An AP All-Pro will average an 8 throughout the season. A Pro bowler(who should be on the team) will average a 6.5. A functional starter will average a 4.5. A 0, well it should be apparent.

Offensive Player Ratings

X WR: Ryan Grant. 6 Arguably one of the stars of the game, even with Garçon’s final drive. Grant helped keep the offense moving(or was trying to), even when the rest of the Redskins offense looked bored to be there.

Y WR: Pierre Garcon 5.5. An amazing final drive, but was lackadaisical(generally speaking) up until then.

More from Riggo's Rag

LT: Trent Williams 5.4. He wasn’t great but did his job just enough not to get criticized. He’s relying more and more on clutching and grabbing-especially as a pass blocker.

LG: Spencer Long 4.3. You didn’t hear his name but the skins only ran the ball effectively on the other side of the line. A couple more performances like this and Kouandjio deserves a shot.

C: Kory Lichtensteiger 4.6. Nothing special. He handled Logan pretty well, but struggled to handler the blitzers.

RG: Brandon Scherff 5.2. He got bailed out on the final drive by an offsetting penalty to negate his holding call. He generally was good and didn’t make any glaring errors.

RT: Morgan Moses 5.1. About the same as Scherff but had a bad penalty in the second half.

TE: Jordan Reed 5.5. A couple nice catches and a bad fumble. But he broke his streak of penalties on 3rd downs.

QB: Kirk Cousins 6. He did what he was asked to do today: don’t make any bad mistakes and keep the offense flowing. If you’re going to quibble with anything it’s that he’s still putting the ball in bad locations and a better secondary is going to jump his throws.

As this author has stated before: if this is Cousins at his best, then we know what he is, a game manager in the Mark Sanchez mold.

RB: Alfred Morris 4.6. He came to life more in the final drive, but he really didn’t make much of an impact in the game.

Morris did little to take his starting job back from Matt Jones but without a horrible game or fumbles, Morris might continue as the starter.

K: Dustin Hopkins 5.7. Did what he was asked. And in doing that, he’s an improvement on Kai Forbath.

Prominent backups:

Matt Jones 4.3. Only 7 rushes for 10 yards and Chris Thompson got the third down touches after his great first drive. It’s hard to see what the plan is for the RBs since the depth charts is, shall we say, fluid.

Chris Thompson 5.7. A long run on 3rd down in the first drive and had a 19 yard catch later in the game. Solid but disappeared for the most part outside of that.

Jamison Crowder 6.1. A strong game by the rookie and deserves more playing time to see what he can contribute.

Derek Carrier 5.2. Decent blocking and a couple nice catches.

KR: Rashad Ross N/A only one return, so no grade.

P: Tress Way 6.2. Solid punting all game long.

PR: Jamison Crowder N/A. Not enough work to merit a grade here.
