More from 106.7 the Fan

Best Game: Shootout 45-41 win over Bears on Oct. 20, when Robert Griffin III threw for 298 yards, ran for 84 and, for one day at least, looked something like the RG3 of last year.

Worst Game: 45-10 drubbing by Chiefs on Dec. 8 in front of smallest home crowd in FedEx Field history.

Best Play: Pierre Garcon’s 19-yard reception in third quarter of Dec. 22 loss to Cowboys was his 107th catch of the season, surpassing Art Monk’s franchise record for a rare positive moment in a dismal season.

Worst Play: Lots of contenders, but Redskins follies were at their most foolish when first-year assistant coach Keith Burns was flagged 15 yards for getting too close to the field and in the way of an official while the Cowboys’ Dwayne Harris was returning a punt 86 yards for a touchdown on Oct 13.

Biggest Surprise: Rookie tight end Jordan Reed, who finished second on the team in receptions (45) and yards receiving (499) despite missing the final six games with a concussion.

Biggest Disappointment: Even more disappointing than Griffin was coach Mike Shanahan, who was supposed to bring order and professionalism to the franchise. Instead, he is leaving behind the familiar circus atmosphere and a Redskins winning percentage (.375) the equal of Steve Spurrier and Jim Zorn.

What’s Next: Finding a head coach, Dan Snyder’s eighth as he enters his 16th season as team owner.
