Week 2: Green Bay Packers 38, Washington Redskins 20- Post Game Thoughts

I may get an argument from Broncos and Peyton Manning fans, but for me the best quarterback in this league is Aaron Rodgers and he proved why in this game against the Redskins.  He threw for a career high 480 yards and tossed four touchdowns in a dismembering of the Washington defense.  What is worse is that the Pack had a running back run for over 100 yards for the first time since these two teams last faced in 2010.  It was not Eddie Lacy (who left early with a concussion) but rather James Starks.  Starks galloped for 132 yards and a touchdown against a very soft looking Redskin defense.  LeSean McCoy shredded the ‘Skins in Week 1, but maybe that was because this defense really isn’t all that great.  The Packers rolled up 580 yards of offense and simply dominated this game.  Robert Griffin III was off again as he continues his recuperation from his knee injury.  The threw for 320 yards and three touchdowns, but many of those stats came in the second half when the game was well out of reach.  Just how good are the Redskins really?  They could be headed for a disappointing season if that defense cannot turn it around because it is clear that RGIII cannot carry the team all on his own this year.
