Could I please get a brief description of the key points on the game and players performance.. I have read through the posts from the game thread but its hard to really get an idea.. from what I read this what I got..

Orakpo and Merriweather both suffered what sounded like serious injuries? I heard they said Orakpo was just a should sprain? any updates? and I heard it looks like an ACL/ MCL for Merrieweather?


Don't know about Merriweather, but here is the latest on Rak.
Tarik El-Bashir‏@TarikElBashir

Brian Orakpo said injury is to same pec he hurt last year. Gets an MRI tomorrow. #Redskins


Also sounds like Bob Griffin III struggled against the Bears D and that Kirk had a great game against the Bears reserves


RGIII played in a muddy pocket the entire night. He looked good at times in his movement in that muddy pocket. He really had no chance to set and throw. He did make one real nice throw to Moss, but even on that one, he faced pressure.


Banks also brought back a Punt? how did he look as a receiver and how were our other receivers looking to make a good impression


Banks didn't play receiver.

any signs of life from Cooley?


Except for the interview, not really

How did the RB's look?


Morris first carry 20 yrds. Looked great until the O line just stopped blocking. Tristan DAvis looked good as well with the little room he had. Tavon(?) Bailey fumbled away his chances of making it.
Was our D as bad as it seems against the 1st stringers of the Bears O ?

seems that our secondary really struggled....


GRiffin looked horrible out there. Hall missed a key open field tackle. Josh Wilson dropped an easy INT. Receivers were wide open. "Seems" is putting it mildly. The reserves looked good.

I know I am asking alot and Im sure people just talking about the game on here will help to answer alot of my questions but I am very grateful for any questions you all can answer until I am able to catch the game on NFL Network tomorrow.. Thanks and HAIL!


Hope that helps

What up with RG3....during press con, always picking his eye-boogers and rubbing nose, and touch his locks........ Hey man, you look fine.

With the pressure that RGIII faced, I doubt if Cousins would have done any better. He migh have gotten killed. He hung in there and took some shots from the reserves. RGIII showed the importance of being elusive back there. He never took straight on shot.

Kirk Cousins will either be this team's very capable backup, or someone to turn into a very high draft pick in the future

Anytime! Used to live in outside the area - hated not being able to see the Redskin games.

My only real concern with this team is the secondary. I actually think Brandon Thompson should make this roster as he shows that he can be an very good cover corner. Tanard Jackson looks to be working off some rust.

Tyler Polumbus played well. And Leribus looks very capable at G as well. Gettis is coming along too, but from my vantage point he's got to play a little lower. If he's a hard worker, he'll be a steal one day who could eventually start.

Briscoe is better than I even thought, but not playing ST might hurt him. For the first time in years, this team will have to cut a WR that can actually make another team.

Alfred Morris probably goes to the practice squad, but he trucked Lance Briggs which was impressive. It looks like Niles Paul might need a year of playing at this weight. If he can keep running 4.4 at the weight he's at, he's going to pose problems for defenders.

He had to be elusive the O-line was horrible against the first string D. Cousins had great protection and plenty of time to find his target and throw, but that was 3rd and 4th stringers not start NFL players

He looked pretty good to me. Stands in the pocket. Moves around in the pocket. He felt the pressure today though. But overall, he looked good. He also was not playing with the starting line intact or with the starting receivers for a good part of the game.

London Flethcher makes this defense work. The difference between him and the other inside backers is off the charts. Not only does he play his spot well, he gets others lined up and it showed in his absence.

My bad, I meant Cedric Griffin. I went back and edited hoping to catch you before you saw it. I agree with you on your analysis of RGIII and Fletch.

Brian Orakpo wants #Redskins fans to know he's okay. He said it was scary at first and he's getting an MRI tomorrow, but he should be fine.

Cedric Griffin had a bad game. I actually prefer Brandyn Thompson to him. He is a bigger corner, but he got worked by bigger receivers in the first half. Alshon Jeffery ate his lunch.

Agreed. I have Cedric on my 53 and after the 2 bad preseason games, I am dropping him.
