FOXSports.com: Pleasant and Unpleasant Surprises at Midway Point

Washington (3-6)

Pleasant: The early stars of the 2012 draft class – quarterback Robert Griffin III and running back Alfred Morris. RG3 is even better than advertised coming into the NFL. Despite playing with a banged-up group of receiving targets, Griffin has completed 65.1 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and three interceptions. Griffin also leads all quarterbacks with 529 rushing yards. As an obscure sixth-round pick from Florida Atlantic, Morris entered the NFL devoid of hype. He has some now, ranking fourth in the league in rushing with 793 yards and five touchdowns.

Unpleasant: The defense has tanked amid a slew of injuries. The turnovers being produced early in the season aren’t as plentiful lately, with none in the past two games, both of which the Redskins lost. Jim Haslett should be painfully aware that Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan wasn’t afraid to change coordinators on a semi-regular basis while in Denver. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Nick Wass)
