Redskins overwhelm Giants in second half

New York Giants v Washington Redskins Getty Images

The last time the Redskins beat the Giants in Washington, they got touchdown passes from Mark Brunell, Patrick Ramsey and Clinton Portis.

On Sunday, they only needed Rex Grossman.

Grossman made Mike Shanahan look wise for choosing him over John Beck in the Redskins quarterback derby by throwing for 305 yards and two touchdowns. Grossman held up well when the Giants pressured him and mostly avoided the kind of crushing mistakes that have long been his NFL calling card. He did lose a fumble on one of Jason Pierre-Paul’s two sacks of the afternoon, but the Giants’ habit of shooting themselves in the foot rendered it moot.

The Giants couldn’t move the ball after Michael Boley recovered the fumble — former Giant Barry Cofield blew up a failed third down run by Ahmad Bradshaw — and then Brian Orakpo blocked Lawrence Tynes‘ field goal attempt. It was the last in a series of brutal special teams blunders by the Giants, a clear sign that they didn’t bother to fix one of the problems that kept them out of the playoffs last season.

They also haven’t quite learned how to avoid the backbreaking turnover. Redskins rookie Ryan Kerrigan tipped an Eli Manning pass into the air, intercepted it and strolled into the end zone to break a 14-14 tie early in the third quarter. The game had been a closely matched affair to that point, but the Redskins rolled from that point forward and dominated the Giants in all three phases of the game. Grossman was impressive, as was tight end Fred Davis. Davis had five catches for 105 yards and looks like matchup nightmare for defenses to contend with in the weeks to come.

Some of those defenses will surely come better equipped than the Giants. With Justin Tuck out thanks to a neck injury, the Giants pretty much had Pierre-Paul and nothing else. Their secondary gave Redskins receivers huge cushions all day, including a fourth-and-five completion to Santana Moss that set up the second Redskins touchdown of the first half. That enabled Grossman to pick them apart even when there was some pressure in the pocket.

The Redskins defense, on the other hand, looked better than expected in their season debut. They were able to create a lot of pressure on Eli Manning and the Giants ground game never got in gear thanks to Cofield and others swarming the line of scrimmage. Chris Neild picked up two sacks and Rocky McIntosh turned in a solid effort at linebacker for the ‘Skins. It helped that the Giants offense looked out of sync for most of the day, but you have to give some of the credit for that to the energy of the Redskins defense as well.

In the end, the Redskins were a bit better than we expected in all phases of the game. The Giants, on the other hand, had all of the sloppiness of last year’s crew without any of the high spots that allowed them to win 10 games.

    Took you a while to rewrite that “same old Redskins” article you had ready to go?

    Not too bad for the 2nd worst team in the NFL, eh PFT?

    Got any snide Rex Grossman comments today?

    Didn’t think so.

    Might wanna rework those power rankings.

    Well, Eli, you finally got what you wanted. You played just like Peyton today.

    Pathetic.
    P A T H E T I C !!!

    That is the only word that can describe New York City’s stepchild football club. The Jets have replaced Shorty Blue as THEE team of Gotham City and that is pitful as well.

    This great country’s largest cesspool lost to a team run by Dan Snyder and Quarterbacked by Rex Freakin Grossman !!!!!

    Bye Bye Tom Coughlin
    Rex Ryan is smiling very big right now while sucking on some preety toes

    Well there’s half our wins we were supposed to get according to most “experts”. HTTR. Us fans knew what time it was. Let’s see if the Cardinals can step into our house and come out with a win. I doubt but i’m sure all the “experts” will say other wise.

    Yikes! Back again for my weekly condolences to Giants fans for another season-ending injury.
    Players getting hurt is never funny, but there is always a small, selfish part of yourself that thinks “Well, it weakens a rival, so there’s a silver lining…”
    Even that part of me can’t feel good anymore. I’m disappointed FOR you guys.
    On the bright side, you could lose the rest of your defense and still be better than the LOLskins.

    Is this what the Redskins fans do? Over react to one win? I guess so since they don’t win often, so I’ll let you enjoy it. But beating the Giants with a depleted defense full of injuries isn’t exactly reassuring. Enjoy it while you can.

  23. nooneyouknow says: Sep 11, 2011 8:18 PM

    “The Redskins defense, on the other hand, looked better than expected in their season debut.”

    Better than expected for a site that ranked them as the 2nd worst team in the league or better than expected than someone who followed them through camp and the preseason? Oh how we forget that minus last yr (when they transitioned to a 3-4) this was a top 10 defense.

  25. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 11, 2011 8:21 PM

    The more I watch Rex, the more I realize how f**ing small he is….damn….But hey, so’s Drew Brees…And again, Rexy got more playoff wins than Tony Romo…

  28. polegojim says: Sep 11, 2011 8:38 PM

    I admit it… I’m SURPRISED that the Red Skins won this game.

    I’m not surprised that Rex played well. Fact is, he can play brilliantly… but he can also play equally as bad or worse.

    Pure and simple, Rex is a ‘Box of Chocolates’.

  29. sicklife1 says: Sep 11, 2011 8:49 PM

    Redskins fans, you’re welcome. It’s the first game of the season & you’re acting like you just won the Super Bowl. Guess that’s how it is after soooooo many losing seasons. You were def the better team today, but lets calm down with changing the power rankings of the NFL. It was 1 game, the first game of the season. You can talk this “httr” talk after you have an over .500 season…..

  30. bluefan204 says: Sep 11, 2011 8:49 PM

    Skins fans sure do get overconfident after one win. I give them all the credit in the world for whooping on my Giants today, but seriously fellas….they’re still the Redskins, and recent history has created a rather steep slope for them to climb. Just be happy being annual off-season Champs and be done with it, because we all know thats whats in store. None of you have a pot to piss in, or a window to throw it out of, when it comes to talking smack with anyone other than Bungles fans.

    Worst bandwagon fans in football

  32. urfinished says: Sep 11, 2011 8:55 PM

    Also love everyone using the stock excuse that the Giants had too many injuries. The Redskins are starting the worst safety in the league in Reed Doughty and probably wouldnt have allowed a TD if Landry was in.
    On a side note…please cut Doughty…don’t demote him…cut him. Horrendous. What about the Va Tech kid? Harris? Or really the cashier at Wegman’s would do.
    The defensive turnaround was flat impressive though. Orakpo + Kerrigan could be special.
    Well done Rex…not a perfect outting but a good one and we appreciate your fight.
    Hail!

  34. skins716 says: Sep 11, 2011 9:06 PM

    first game of the season and my take is this.. defense definitely looks better than last year.. couple of big dropped passes by our receivers, but didn’t hurt us in the end.. gano missed an easy fg, but hopefully he can get that straightened up.. it’s obvious we need landry back to help out the front line in run defense.. all around good game from our skins, but keep in mind, they were without a lot of their starters on defense.. let’s keep this intensity up and hopefully stay healthy up to the bye and beyond!! hail victory!!

  35. hoggy301 says: Sep 11, 2011 9:08 PM

    All u haters need a hug. We are not idiots up here in DC, we know it’s the first game of a long season; does that mean we aren’t supposed to rake shots at all the morons who take shots on us on a daily basis!! As for bluefan; the giants look horrible!! You can’t afford to be taking shots at skins fans.. The real NY team is playing the Cowboys right now. They took the NY reigns

  36. imseantaylor says: Sep 11, 2011 9:10 PM

    How do you guys take yourselves seriously over there?

    Power Rankings:

    31. Redskins: Maybe Dan Snyder can get Joe Gibbs to unretire again.

    Hell even the dead last Bengals won. I’m convinced you guys get drunk spin in a chair and throw a dart at the board for these rankings.

    LOL bandwagon?? Skins fans are OPPOSITE of bandwagon. What “bandwagon” did we jump on? The one thats been losing for the last 20 years?

    I don’t wanna hear about the “depleted” Giants defense…. Skins were missing two of their best defenders in Jenkins and Landry. In fact if it wasnt for Reed “How am I in the NFL” Doughty, the Giants wouldn’t have had those 2 long completions which kept this game close.

  38. skins1976 says: Sep 11, 2011 9:13 PM

    Last in the league huh? We beat the brakes off the Gnats today in all phases of the game. Awfully quite in here…where are the hatin’ chumps? Arizona you’re next. Line ‘em up and we’ll knock’em down. Hail to the Redskins!!!

  39. east96st says: Sep 11, 2011 9:17 PM

    Wow. One win and you boys are acting like it’s the Super Bowl. Here’s the reality – the Skins played well against a below average team. Do really think your WRs can drop that many passes against Green Bay and you’ll win? Or that Grossman can get hit like that week after week? I’m a Giants fan and I didn’t expect much this season before all the injuries. After losing a number of key defensive starters, well, let’s just say I’m hoping next year’s draft goes well for NY. We’ll be picking high. No question Washington is better. But, truthfully, you really had very little room to get worse. So, here’s a heartfelt “congrats” on a game well played. You earned the W. But face the reality that the competition you faced was not exactly the NFL’s best. You’re better, not great. Big difference.

    —————————————-
    We have another opposing fan with amnesia. Define recent history? We know you dont have a pot to piss in because you smell like piss. I suspect you and the Giants will keep pissing on yourselves. Recent history? We were in the playoffs in 2007. In 2008, the team finished 8-8. As all Skins fans know, everything is blown out of proportion when it comes to the Skins. We dont understand why other fans care so much about the Skins. If we suck, then please forget about us. We’ll just keep kickin a$$ this season. The media and other teams’ fans are upset that the Skins didnt draft a QB in 2011. So what do you care. They will draft and groom one next year. It’s actually better to have Grossman as a bridge and let the young QB learn and still respect veteran players who want to win now. It’s bad franchise management to start a rookie QB. It means that the front office failed. Go Skins!

  44. londonfletcher says: Sep 11, 2011 9:27 PM

    I love that when the Skins win, they seem to still manage to put a spin on it being the other teams fault. The Skins stayed quite during the off season, didn’t make any stupid big $$ signings, and picked up guys the right way, and have come out and beated a rival team at home that they have beaten there since 2006, and you STILL say that it can’t be because they may be better than they have been. Whatever. My skins looked 10x better today then they did in any game last year in all three aspects of the game. Bring on the Cards, and let the haters hate, because I love loving an underdog team.

    Hail!

  47. joparks says: Sep 11, 2011 10:00 PM

    All, I don’t think it’s a matter of thinking that we just wond the Super Bowl. I think it’s a matter of having read all the trash from everyone on this board over the last month about how bad the Skins were and then looking at the expert publications like the Sporting News that predicted that the Skins would win 2 games. Honestly, the Skins are right where I thought they would be and they are already ahead of last years pace because they didn’t win a game by more than 6 points last year. In fact, the largest lead they had last year was 17 points and they lost that game to the Texans. Were the Skins bad last year? You bet. They played a brutal schedule and managed to be in just about every game they played. 12 games decided by 6 points or less and they were 6-6 in those. If Zorn had been coaching them last year they would have probably gone 2-14. This team is improving and as a fan, I like the new approach. Now all they have to do is get Landry in there and get Doughty off the field and the defense will be better. To be honest, I don’t need validation from the Giants, Eagles or Cowboys fans to know that team is better than last year. I can just watch them play and figure it out.

    I must say i was one of the many that laughed when Grossman said the Skins will compete, guess what they did mea culpa. On a side note geez i cant believe McNabb threw for 37 yrds what.. the guy is done.

  50. valman61 says: Sep 11, 2011 10:08 PM

    You beat a giants team at home without sixdefensive starters, no TE, 3rd wr, and you still got sacked six times and may have lost if not for a def td. I wouldn’t exactly be excited if I was a skins fan. You’re missing one safety. Were missing our def captain, two pro bowl d ends, starting MLB, db, and first and second round draft picks. Plus a backup db and lb. So Rex scored three td in what amounted to a blend of the second and third string giants defense. Wow stop traffic, the redksins are for real. No they are just as bad as they were yesterday and the past decade.

  51. bangbangbilly says: Sep 11, 2011 10:23 PM

    Grossman actually has good qb minded coaches he has never had that is his career… And Eli at Brady level ?? I mean common u kidding me

  52. wethog66 says: Sep 11, 2011 10:33 PM

    As a Skins fan you will get no delusions of grandeur from me, but it was a solid performance by the Skins today. The defense looked solid in the second half, and bad Grossman tried to lose it, but he didn’t succeed. There is obvious room for improvement for the Skins, but it is nice to start the year with a win, over a division opponent no less.

    As for Giants fans making excuses, give me a break. Sure the defense was missing some good players, but so were the Skins. And last I checked the Giants offense was largely intact from last year.

    This is year 2 of a much needed rebuild and so far positive progress is obviously being made. That and it doesn’t appear like a given the Skins will be the doormat of the division.

  53. duncanthecat says: Sep 11, 2011 10:41 PM

  56. pmacadams says: Sep 11, 2011 11:12 PM

    1. the details in this article’s accounts of the game are inaccurate.
    2. game was won with solid rushing, consistent passing, and excellent 2nd half defensive pressure.
    3. there has been a pattern of biased, emotion-based journalism by this website over months toward the redskins. not sure why i continue to read it while twitter is out there. it’s shoddy, amateur reporting.

    i can’t believe i read these comments. i need to get a life…and wipe my browser history.

  57. bhester1906 says: Sep 11, 2011 11:26 PM

    I don’t understand why there is so much negativity in a Skins win. Panthers, cowboys pats or whoever win than they are great. Not the skins tho, the other team musta screwed up. There is no way the skins made smart off season signings drafted smart and prepared for the game just no way at all. Smh… Hail!

    was nice sitting back in the fourth qtr today taking it easy at my friend’s crib watchin the skins ride the last few mins off the clock, the game in hand. was nice watchin drafted players making plays and nice free agent pick ups playing well. was nice watchin solid coaching with great halftime adjustments and good playcalling. was nice watchin grossman pick apart that giants defense. was nice watching eli shrugging his shoulders after incompletions and watchin his face as he got sacked. was nice seeing tom coughlins(aka creeping death)face get red with anger. THE GIANTS CAME INTO WASHINGTON AND RAN INTO A BUZZSAW.

  61. thunderskins007 says: Sep 12, 2011 12:39 AM

    why did hightower change his #? 25 looked weird on him.

  62. toonsterwu says: Sep 12, 2011 1:24 AM

    The Skins are a solid team. The defense is a solid unit. I wasn’t huge on Ryan Kerrigan moving to an OLB role, but he looked … good … out there today. Still have my concerns on the secondary, and in particular, the secondary depth, but this shouldn’t be anywhere as bad a unit as it was last year, and DL is much better.

    The big question all year will be offense, and in particular, the OL. If the OL protects well, both Beck and Grossman can succeed behind it. There’s enough passing weapons (although Anthony Armstrong really needs to hold onto balls he gets his hands on). More than protecting well for the passing game, they have to run block well. I was surprised that the Giants managed to contain the Redskins rushing attack. I think the Skins will be able to run on most defenses this year, but the OL needs to do better.

    More important, the OL needs to stay healthy. The depth is simply bad. No other way to put it, and they can’t afford to have go to the OL bench depth too far.

    It’s a good squad that should be around .500 and compete with the Cowboys/Giants for 2nd place in the division. As of now, while I think the “Dream Team” is overhyped, they are in pole position.

    Your quarterback is still Rex Grossman. I’m pretty sure he had one or two solid games in Chi-town. Play a successful full season, then talk all the sh%t you want.

  65. ham1 says: Sep 12, 2011 7:20 AM

    We will see how it shakes out. Just one game. The skins oline needs to get better because they looked liked they had trouble today with Gmen back ups applying pressure. Better pressue will come from some healthy teams. Rex can do the job if the O line limits the qb pressures.
    Way to shut down the run. Didnt see much of Bradshaw and Jacobs today. Somebody get Landry on the field will ya?
    Nice start at home on 9-11. Httr

    Wow. One win and you boys are acting like it’s the Super Bowl. Here’s the reality – the Skins played well against a below average team. …I’m a Giants fan and I didn’t expect much this season before all the injuries. …You earned the W. But face the reality that the competition you faced was not exactly the NFL’s best.

    Are you kidding? Maybe there’s another East96st on this site, but I recall you crowing all last week about how the Giants were goint to win the NFCE.

    A couple of things, Redsinks fans: Don’t pat yourselves on the back quite yet… the ‘Skins beat a pretty pathetic team yesterday. Just wait until they play a worthy opponent. Not only that, this is only the first game of the season. Any dreams of playoff glory is premature.

    Congrats Skins fans… You beat the Giants without:

    Justin
    Osi
    Terrell
    Prince
    Bruce
    Jonathan

    Congrats on your impressive win over the “B” Team!

    Eli Manning is…. UNSTOPPABLE…

    I hope I never have to see that dumb watch commercial again.

    As a Bears fan, I humbly submit that you got “Good Rex” yesterday. If you can keep Rex good, the playoffs are possible. If you get “Bad Rex” half the time or worse, well… you’ll probably do better than you did with McNabb last year, but not much better.

    But hey, I’ll admit that Good Rex/Bad Rex in Chicago was a long time ago. Maybe Shanny has the golden hand with Rex.

    Redskins aren’t playing on New Years Eve this year, are they?

    It is kind of gross how much LOLskins fans are overreacting to one win.

    You’d think they toppled the 2007 Patriots or something.

    I guess even bad teams have to have SuperBowl hype one week out of every year.
