Scud's Studs (Week 4 @ The Rams)
 
Time to hand out some accolades for that stupid nail-biter of a football game.

[B]The Front Seven[/B]: Brought great pressure all day. Bradford was on his heels and/or his butt on nearly every drop back. 7 sacks?? When have Washington Redskins ever had 7 sacks in game? Bowen, Cofield, Kerrigan, Orakpo, Rocky... Everyone got in on the action. Speaking of Kerrigan, what a great pick he's been. I mentioned it in the gameday thread- he's playing like a legit pro-bowler right now.

[B]Ryan Torain: [/B]Wow! Welcome to the 2011 season, buddy! Impressive vision, cuts, speed, and power. Really great today. Granted it was against an awful run D, but we took advantage of a glaring weakness and exploited it like we should have.

[B]Rocky McIntosh[/B]: I know I mentioned the front seven already, but I feel like Rocky deserves to be singled out. He had an absolutely fantastic game. For a guy who was rumored to have one foot out the door during the offseason, he's been really really good all year.

[B]Sav Rocca: [/B]What an underrated acquisition. Leads the league in punts inside the opponents 20, and had some big ones for the Redskins today.

[B]The Rams: [/B]You were indeed studs today- for us that is. If not for all the terrible drops and penalties, you win that game. 'Preciate ya.

Torain was in beast-mode, dude is like a runaway truck when he gets going.

Loved all the sacks but if we didn't have at least 4-5 today against that horrible line we shouldn't have been on the field.

Scud summed it up pretty well.

Im gonna add a couple:

Oline: wow, great way to open the holes up and picked up everything in protection. Limited penalties on the road: HUGE

Gaffney: Caught some big 3rd downs

Gano: every kick he makes is soooo pivatol with our offense being so inconsistant.

The LB's in coverage too. Bradford had nowhere to dump off to because the guys not pressuring him were covering the backs and TE's.

Torrain was amazing. Makes me wonder whether Hightower or Helu wouldn't have also hit the holes & had a monster game, but liked this to get them to fire up the competition. A three headed monster.

On top of the NFC East! Hard to change QB's with a win - but wouldn't mind to see what Beck's got in him..

Lance Kendricks. He makes even one play in the end zone, and the whole ballgame would have been different.

It's not the line, it Torain making it rain. Hightower's job might be in jeopardy.

[B]Offensive Line:[/B] No Sacks, Run blocked well, and Pass protected. Gotta wonder if Hightower, not the O-line, was the problem running the ball effectively the last 3 games.

[B]Ryan Torain:[/B] The same holes Hightower had, Torain had 135 yds and a TD. Great vison, breaks tackles, runs with power. If he can stay healthy, he should be the #1 RB coming off the bye.

[B]Rams Offense:[/B] (Specifically WR's) [B]PATHETIC[/B]. Dropped Passes TD's, Holding Penalties, lack of discipline. If Bradford had better WR's, this would've been a win for the Rams.

[B]Punt Coverage:[/B] T'd off on Pettis TWICE, and I'll take that. If you don't call fair catch, YOU DESERVE TO GET LIT UP.

Amen, I'd never advocate trying to hurt a guy and the refs got both calls right - but it definitely sends a message that you are going to get your a** blown up if you are stupid enough to pull that in the NFL against the Redskins. If the field position differential had been a deciding factor, I would be singing a different tune, first to admit it but because it wasn't I'm glad Pettis got rocked (but again, not seriously hurt)

Welcome back Manley and Mann.

Ummmm....I mean Orakpo and Kerrigan.

The Redskins this year are winning games (Rams, Cardinals) that we would have lost in previous seasons.

Excellent sum up for me right there. I'm gonna piggyback on the above.

Front 7 - 7 sacks? Excellent, couldn't have asked us for more. And the d as a whole deserves a mention after bailing us out in the 4th quarter. The offense let them down in the 4th quarter, and it looks like our D is back to being our team strength.

Rocky McIntosh - I was a hater, but if he plays the type of football he played today consistently in the future, I will retract my opinions. Very solid game today.

Sav Rocca - Sav Rocca for All-Pro! Seriously, having a good punter is extremely underrated.

And even the Rams deserve credit. They played pretty bad today, and that was a major factor in us winning the game. Sam Bradford, I feel pretty bad for you.
