Early on, Kirk Cousins was terrible, aiming his throws more than sitting back there and throwing decisively. We had little running game. I was not very impressed by Matt Jones. Part of that goes to the offensive line which, for lack of a better term, was offensive.
The good was Desean Jackson, who looked much like the Desean Jackson when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles, and Hopkins our kicker was solid. Even on a terrible situation where the Redskins were called for delay of game on a PAT.
The really bad was the defense. Breeland and Norman, the Redskins 2 cornerbacks, were beat much of the night, Breeland especially, because the Redskins had no pass rush to speak of. The Redskins also failed to stop the run and make any adjustments to do so. The other really bad was the penalties which killed the Redskins drives repeatedly.
The good news is, its game 1. It can only get better from here. What do you think Redskins fans?

NFL officials are currently looking into contingency plan(s) around the Eagles-Redskins game on Sunday due to Hurricane Joaquin’s proximity to D.C. this weekend, according to the Washington Post.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins are scheduled to kick off at 1:00 PM ET Sunday at FedEx Field.
“We are monitoring the forecast and having dialogue with both teams,” said Greg Aiello, the NFL’s senior vice president of communications, via the Post. The report also says the NFL and team(s) may wait until Sunday before making a determination.
As readers know, Hurricane Joaquin is headed our way with winds of 115 mph. By Sunday, he will be weakening and east of us as the storm is forecasted to turn more north and/or northwest but, there is still some uncertainty there.
There is precedent for the postponement of NFL games in extreme weather cases.
