Re: Giving props...

Props:

* The Shanahans have, at this point, earned their rep as offensive masterminds. They created an "RG3 offense" that is not only perfectly tailored to help him as a rookie with limited decisions to make passing-wise, but one that keeps the defensive ends and middle linebackers baffled all game.

* Completely agree on Paulsen... he has played FAR better than expected.

* Riley too... It's good to know we have someone to step in for Fletch at some point and be decent.

* Trent Williams for apparently growing up a little and becoming our new Chris Samuels.

No Props:
It's funny you mention Polumbus because he is the one guy who I am shocked has an NFL job. If you truly watch him throughout the game, he completely whiffs on blocks and gets tossed around regularly.

Now, the Shanahans have been MASTERFUL at putting makeup on this in the form of the new pistol/east coast offense which is incredible at keeping the D-Ends from pinning their ears back, moving the pocket around on them, and wearing them out on stretch runs all game.

However, watch the next time we have to do "normal" passing plays if we are playing catch-up (5-7 step drop passing game)... Polumbus is a turn-style.

But hey... seriously I am not trying to hate... he is just the one guy that when I actually isolate and watch him, I want to throw my TV against the wall.

Re: Giving props...

Moss - He's taken an unjustifiably reduced role in stride and still proved to be the best pure receiver on the roster. Anyone else notice we don't score as many points in the games Moss isn't given at least a handful of opportunities.

Young - No frills, just great blocking and an awesome outlet for quick dives, misdirection or dump passes.

Trent - Mostly for playing through what sounds like an extremely painful injury

Fletcher - He's probably in more pain than anyone on the field, and still nearly elite.

Riley - Emerging as a top ILB

Bowen - IMO he's the only guy on the active roster who has any business starting as a 3-4 defensive lineman

Kai, PG and Trent.

I had my doubts on PG but he is one hell of a player. He plays with heart and just exudes effort on every play. The team is truly different with him on the field.

Trent has stepped his game up to "top tier" level. Every year since TW came into the league we kept hearing what he could develop into. In the NFL the "could be potential" rarely develops but I'm proud to say TW seems to have realized his potential and has a football mind now. It's not about what he can do outside of football but he considers himself a leader and doesn't let other players push any of his teammates around. He is the first to step in and let other teams know that BS isn't going to fly when he is around. Teammates respect that! I am really proud that he beat the odds and is establishing a new punishing attitude on the line.

Kai what else to say. The dude makes kicks and if he was here all year we could easily be 9-3 right now.

Garcon. So happy to have him back. Imagine if we had him and Gaffney line up together.

Re: Giving props...

Pierre Garcon -- I really hope he and RG3 become one of the great QB-WR tandems for the next few years.

Darrell Young -- Alfred Morris is great but having a Fullback who opens up holes for you has to help. Plus he is there for RG3 on all the pistor formation plays

Re: Giving props...

Not a player (but since the Shanahans got some I am going here)

Dan Snyder - for being the owner that stepped back, and let the FO make the decisions, but kept the checkbook open.

Re: Giving props...

1. Pierre Garcon for playing with an injured toe. He has been playing some excellent football.

2. Kai Forbath for being perfect on FGs. I love his consistency.

3. London Fletcher for leading the team while injured and being the tackling machine that he is.

4. Chris Cooley for coming back and being an excellent teammate while dealing with his demotion with class.

5. Perry Riley for being great on defense. He's becoming one great ILB.

Re: Giving props...

1. Kai Forbath
2. WIl Montgomery
3. Chris Chester
4. Darrel Young
5. Santana Moss

These are the guys I didnt expect who have stepped and been the difference in wins and losses.

Forbath has been a real nice surprise.

I think the Oline as a unit has been the most surprising. I really dont buy the arguement RG3 makes the unit "better", these guys have taken nice steps. Check the individual grades of Trent, Montgomery and Chester. These guys have graded out in the top half of the league all year.

Re: Giving props...

Just about anybody on offense. Monty and Young strike me as the most suprising. KL is coming of major knee surgery and has gotten the job done. Paulsen has stepped up when we were in trouble at TE. All of our WRs are a huge part of our running game in a very unrecognized fashion.

Re: Giving props...

1. Kai Forbath
2. The offensive line - I think collectively they have really played pretty well down the stretch.
3. Darrel Young
4. Josh Morgan
5. L. Hankerson
6. Paulsen for stepping up and filling the void while Fred Davis has been injured.

Last but not least: The fans who were lucky enough to show up to Fed Ex Field on Monday night and help electrify the stadium. Even at home watching on TV, it felt like it did when the 'skins played at RFK.

Re: Giving props...

Another obvious is Morris....his second level burst of showmanship after that NY fumble was a game closer that got us here. You'de have to be blind not to see how the event poured from him. That's got me told!.. U can say that for all of them now too. Keep Fighting!

Re: Giving props...

Great thread, I think everyone is caught up in the RG3 hype right now and Morris is only seeing a spit of it. I'll give mine out to:

OL: what a suprise. supposed to the be weakest link.
WR's: Garcon is getting a lot of hype also but in reality Hankerson, Morgan, Robinson, Moss.... they all are pulling some form of weight.

OC: my biggie. 4 wks ago we were ready to run the Shanahan's out of town. smart to get back to what worked in the first few games.

I read this after my OL props. I will agree to an extent. I don't watch Polumbus specifically but what I've noticed is the play action really helps our offense. We all know this but it seemed KS had gotten away from the stretch plays and had RG3 getting rushed on. Then after the bye week it seemed like the team went back to what worked in the first few games.

Play action
Stretch plays
Options plays

All these keep the defense honest allowing RG3 to work his magic.

Uh, no on Gaffney. Besides I thought someone just let him go recently? If he was that great the Redskins would bring him back for your dream scenario.

Re: Giving props...

Props to all of the players who have played hurt.

London Fletcher - Can't keep him off the field.
Trent Williams - He has been gutting it out for weeks.
Pierre Garcon - His courageous performances mean so much to the team.

I'm sure there are many more injuries we don't even know about.

Also, props to DeAngelo Hall who is on crutches and yet he is vowing to play against the Ravems this week. I'd bet on him.
