Redskins Good, Bad, and Ugly: A Season Ending Embarrassment

The Washington ended their 2017 season with a humiliating loss tot he New York Giants, by a score of 18-10.  Here we go.

The Good

The Redskins will have a better draft pick.  That is good, right?  Punter Tress Way was busy and put together a nice game.  That’s sad.  With 9 punts in freezing cold temperatures, Way averaged 47.3 yards per punt.  Pretty good for a leg that had to be getting tired.  RB Kapri Bibbs was one of the only players to show up in New York.  He rushed for 47 yards and caught 8 passes for 53 yards.  Not that great, but the kid fought for yards.  He deserves a look in training camp.  The other good that I can think of is that this season is over.  That’s it for the Good.

The Bad

Everything else.  Everything.

The Ugly

QB Kirk Cousins may very well end his Redskins career with another interception and a horrid 31.1 QB rating.  This was by far his worst game of the season.  In 20 completed passes, Cousins threw for just 158 yards and threw three very ugly interceptions.  WR Josh Doctson continued to be hampered by the dropped ball syndrome.  He has a lot of work to do in the offseason.  Same goes with WR Jamison Crowder.  CB Bashaud Breeland  and S DeShazor Everett were both pretty bad today.  Breeland can leave to free agency for all I care.  The only one who thinks he is a top corner in this league is himself.  The offense was a mere 1 for 13 on third downs.  They garnered just 197 total yards of offense.  Horrible!  Defensively the run defense never showed up for this game.  The NY Giants rushed for a combined 260 yards.  Besides the run defense, the Redskins defense as a whole simply forgot how to tackle today.  Injuries aside, the Redskins lacked basic fundamental football execution and preparation today.  That’s on them, that’s on coaching.  But hey, Jay Gruden deserves another season.
