      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

      How do you like them apples?
      The Washington Redskins sent them home happy today. Along the way my ulcer started bleeding, I threw up twice, and peed the chair I was sitting in.
      Up by 10 at the two-minute warning, I did not expect to be hoping for a missed field goal to avoid overtime. But there I was, crossing fingers and toes and noticibly relieved when the ball bounced off the upright to seal the win.
      A lot of things had to go right for the Dallas Cowboys to even have a shot at the end. A lot more things went right for Washington.
      The Redskins held Ezekiel Elliot to just 33-yards rushing. They forced two fumbles by Dak Prescott, one of which went for a Redskins' touchdown, and sacked him a total of four times. 
      Ryan Kerrigan had his best day of the season, sacking Prescott twice, one of which caused the fumble for the score. Preston Smith scored the touchdown off of the fumble. Jonathan Allen and and Ryan Anderson each logged a sack. DJ Swearinger hit Prescott square on the ball to cause the other fumble by Prescott.
      And then there was the offense.
      Adrian Peterson defies time and physics in what he can still do on the football field. His ability to change directions instantly, the speed he still posesses, and his ability to play through multiple injuries is astonishing. He ran for 99-yards on 24-carries with a 4.1 yard per carry average. 
      Kapri Bibbs, the other back; added just 13-yards rushing. But as a receiver he caught 4 passes for 43-yards and the first touchdown of the game.
      Josh Doctson reeled in 3-receptions for 43-yards. Jordan Reed added 43-yards on his two catches. Maurice Harris logged 2 for 22-yards.
      Alex Smith had a adequate outting. He went 14/25 for 178 yards and a touchdown for a quarterback rating of 98.1. He was sacked once.
      His obvious miss of Jeremy Sprinkle running free in the end zone is almost cause for termination. Connect on that throw and the game is much more comfortable at the end. 
      The real stars of this show were the fat guys in the trenches. The offensive line that opened highway lane-wide holes for Peterson to run through, and the defensive line that wreaked such havok all game. 
       
      But we have to thank Dallas as well for things like an illegal snap to back the field goal unit up at the end. The holding call that negated the big gain one play before the sack/fumble/score was huge. They seemed to find ways to beat themselves.
       
      Despite the above, Dallas was right there until last miss that struck the goalpost. The win was entirely too close for comfort.
       
      But now that's it's over, I sure am enjoying the win.
       
      The Redskins sit alone at the top of the division after 6-weeks. They travel to New York next week where they can continue to help themselves with a win.
       
      But just because New York currently resides in the toilet does not mean they intend to roll-over and play dead. Washington will have their hands full if they don't get more production out of the offense.
       
      That's next week though. For now, I am intent on  enjoying an excellent victory. Against the Dallas Cowboys.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Talk soon!

Following the rules of the board, Mark the Homer suggested that we use this tread to talk about the particulars of going to the Linc on Sunday. Anyone interested?

I'm bringing my flags -- that's four flags on three decent sized flag poles: a 21 footer, a 17 footer, and a 12 footer. Yeah, I upgraded from last year. Plus my Redskins Fans Parking Only sign. The Eagles fans will love that.

That is too bad. We could use those guns to protect us. :) Just kidding. I would like to add that last year wasn't so bad, granted they were out of contention, but overall people just said mean things like, "the only thing I would like to screw in Washington, are their lady fans." You know, crap like that. So, this time I am going to wear no makeup, baggy jeans and a big coat. :mad:

For the most part, the tailgate was awesome. I really hope that we can get that turnout plus more. Lot D4 is the spot folks.

Since the weekend is here, I thought is was necessary to finalize our plans for tailgating at the game in Philly on Sunday. How 'bout it?

I am planning to arrive at the game at 7:00 am or so in lot D4 (same as last year). It would be nice is you guys could join me.

Some mod took that Caravan to Philly thread and merged it into another thread and then stuck it in the tailgate section that nobody reads. Good thinking!

http://www.extremeskins.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133765&page=9&pp=15&highlight=caravan+philly

We're not going to rally everybody together unless everybody sees the thread! Sheesh. Sometimes you have to wonder if an Eagles fan has infiltrated the ranks of the mods.... ?

I suggest we use this thread until they move it, then we restart another one here until they move it, etc., until game time.

The plan is, everybody who can meet at Maryland House do so and try to get there around 10:30 Sunday. It's at mile marker 81.0, which is 16 miles north of the Baltimore beltway on I-95. It's a left hand exit. We'll leave at 11 and caravan to the Linc together with Redskins car flags flying.

Those who are late or are coming from another direction, try to meet us at (EDIT) one of the Wachovia Lots, which can be accessed via Broad street. You can get maps and directions here:

http://www.lincolnfinancialfield.com/home.jsp

Edit: At first we planned on Lot U, but I've learned there is no tailgating allowed at Lot U. I called the Philadelphia Eagles and they recommend we park at one of the Wachovia lots. The Philadelphia Eagles told me to take I-95 N and you'll see the stadium on the right, then take the Broad St exit, then get on Broad st, and turn right onto Pattison St, and from there the Wachovia lots are accessible. They are marked Lots A through Lots H. PM me and I'll give you my cell and you can call me for our Lot location after we arrive and park at around noon Sunday, but we are planning on Lot D. I'll have a 20 foot flag pole flying the American flag, and a Redskins flag just below it. It will be visible from quite a distance.

Halter91 will have a turkey fryer to cook wings in, so you might want to bring some wings, and some hot sauce and butter to drizzle on them. Otherwise, if you can, bring hamburgers, dogs, brats, buns, chili, dips, chips, cheese, crackers, whatever, and of course, beverages, if you can. If you can't bring food, show up anyway! I'm sure there will be plenty of food to go around. A number of people will have grills. The main thing is SHOW UP! All Redskins fans are welcome, whether you have food or not!

Weather forecast for Philly Sunday: Partly Cloudy, High 47

Please bump this thread.

THANKS!

Just a iece of advice from an Eagles 11 year season ticket holder. You better leave way before 11:00.... The Wachovia lots usually fill up by 11:00. Also, I would go 1 exit past the Broad street exit and take Packer Ave. Thius will bring you in the back door from the Jersey sidce. it eliminates a lot of traffic at the Broad street exit. If you take Packer Ave, it will lead you right into the old Vet lot. Basically you will be parking in the New Citizens Bank Parking Lot. I would park in R W, or X See Link

P.S. This is the last piece of friendly advice I give to my fellow football fans.

I live in b.more and have two tickets, but am kinda freaked out about being in philly wearing my skins gear. Which Maryland house are you all meeting at?

If "freaked out" is all that happens to you up there consider yourself fortunate. Better sit close to Mama Portis.
