Redskins Post Game Notes

News and notes from week-three of the NFL season.

--QB Patrick Ramsey appeared unbothered by the sprained left (non-throwing) shoulder he injured in the win at Atlanta. He posted his second straight 300-yard passing day, though this one was pretty ugly until Washington's late rally.
   --WR Darnerien McCants enjoyed a semi-breakout game (four catches, 67 yards, one touchdown, plus a two-point conversion). McCants was the No. 3 receiver by late last year, but the Redskins overhauled the receiver position during the offseason. Rookie Taylor Jacobs was expected to be No. 3, but he has been sidelined with a bruised pancreas and now McCants has made a good argument to stay put.
   --LB LaVar Arrington was very sharp in an otherwise erratic day for Washington's defense. He had a sack/fumble on Giants QB Kerry Collins and forced a fumble on RB Tiki Barber.
   --CB Champ Bailey endured a rough afternoon. He gave up a 54-yard touchdown to WR Amani Toomer (Bailey slipped a bit; Toomer showed terrific speed) and was in position in prevent WR Ike Hilliard from scoring on a 5-yard play.
   --K John Hall booted a 42-yard field goal in the first quarter and a 33-yarder to send the game into overtime. But in between, he missed a 53-yarder and 49-yarder.
