I'm really starting to like this group.
Griffin and Morris have been great so far, but the rest of the offense stepped up and helped build a 15-point lead early.
Josh Morgan made everyone forget about his error against the Rams with the plays he made today. He has great hands and seems to always make the play whenever targeted. Leonard Hankerson looks far more confident with the ball in his hands and looks to be over his drop issues from the start of the season.
Apart from those two, Fred Davis and Santana Moss put in solid efforts. Those four give Griffin a ton of options even without Pierre Garcon in the game. Garcon was clearly still feeling the lingering effects of that foot injury, so he didn't do much. But when he finally gets healthy, this is a pretty formidable group to stop.
The offensive line did a much better job of getting Griffin upright this game. There were a few costly penalties that slowed the offense, but otherwise, a better-than-expected effort by this group in both the pass and run game.
Brandon Banks has been surprisingly adept at working trick plays and gadgets. The double-pass was a great play call that paid off. Banks was banged up before this game, so I have to think we'll see more of him next week on offense.
The deep ball still needs work, but hopefully that will come with Garcon coming back and Griffin getting more reps in with the other guys. Kyle Shanahan has done a good job with this group so far, but he needs to work on keeping a consistent pace in both halves.
The 'Skins were stopped for all but the game-winning drive which came easy. Granted, they were playing with a lead and leaning more on the run game, and they did suffer three missed field goals (only two were really make-able), but you have to put teams away in that situation.
Griffin and company are definitely the strength of this team now, but they have to keep their foot on the gas.
