      And we are back!
       
      Hello boys and girls, welcome to another year of Washington Redskins football, home-team style.
       
      My name is JimmiJo and I am joined by my shuttered compatriot, Spaceman Spiff. Together we bring you the sights and sounds of Redskins preseason football. Tonight represents the first home installment for Washington. I will be looking for fan enthusiasm, tho it is difficult to gauge interest-level from the preseason. These are the games that the season ticket holders give to their siblings and coworkers.
       
      Tonight may be different as we expect Alex Smith to play. The pundits keep telling me he is Kirk Cousins only better. That will be awesome if so. 
       
      We are quickly filling the list with season-ending injuries, with Washington losing three projected contributors in the first week of preseason. This wince-producing stat is made worse when we consider the projected contributions of Derrius Guice, now lost for the year.
       
      All he was brought here to do was resurrect the Redskins' rushing game. 
       
      This for me is the biggest area of concern for me. The running game has got to get better for this team to have any reason success this year.
       
      Stand by for Inactives...
       
      An hour later I remember they don't do inactives in the preseason. Hey, it's preseason for us too!
       
      Not much to report. Very sparse crowd so far. But given it is a work-night and rush hour is just wrapping up on the beltway I am not surprised we are not overflowing with people yet.
       
      The Redskins appear to be wearing burgundy tops and mustard bottoms, for those keeping score at home. The Jets meanwhile, are sporting white tops and green bottoms.
       
      So far just the kickers and long snappers are warming up from both teams. 
       
      The hot, sunny day is giving way to a warm, breezy evening. Should be fairly pleasant viewing conditions for those coming out.
       
      Kickoff

      It is about that time. Follow along in-game on Twitter @Skinscast
       
      Half
       
      Alex Smith looked sharp, going 4-6 for 48-yards and a 91 passer-rating. 
       
      But that's not the story of this game.
       
      The story is the injuries that continue to mount to running backs. Samaje Perine had an impressive 30-yard run. Then limped off to be evaluated for an ankle sprain. Next was Byron Marshall.  A lower leg injury they say.
       
      The Redskins are suffering the worst run of injuries this early maybe ever.

      I am not sure how much we learned tonight. I take that back.
       
      Kevin Hogan, whom I had taken to calling ‘Nogan,’ somehow produced a lovely comeback victory with no time to spare. Way to send them home happy.
       
      Beyond the excitement at the end I am not sure we learned much.
       
      Alex Smith is exactly who we thought he was. Smith went 4-for-6 for 48-yards and a passer rating of 91. There was some excitement on his first call from scrimmage, when Smith play actioned the handoff and kept the ball on a bootleg, he turned to setup to hit Paul Richardson and instead received a face-full of Jets’ linebacker Jordan Jenkins. Smith completed the pass to Richardson and Jenkins was handed a 15- roughing call.
       
      The offense are exactly who we thought they are. Feckless in the redzone; unable to produce anything but field goals. Even when the stars did align, with Colt McCoy connecting Cam Sims, area spectacular touchdown catch; cruel fate intervened with a chickenscratch procedure call.
       
      The injuries are exactly what we feared they could be. Why is it every running back who goes for 30-yards on a single play comes up limping? Samaje Perine ran for 30-yards on his one carry on the night.
       
      The next time he was seen was on the way to the locker room to have an ankle looked at.
       
      Then there was Byron Marshall. He barely got into the game before coming out with a leg injury.
       
      After the first few drives Washington did very little offensively until they had to at the very end.
       
      And as little as this preseason game meant, it was nice to see the valiant stop at the goal line. It was even nicer to see Mr. Hogan lead the team down the field and to victory.
       
      Oh yea, we learned one more thing - Dustin Hopkins can kick field goals.
       
      Hail!

Trade Lavar for Carson Palmer!

What's wrong with John Hall on kick-offs?

  1. 1. What's wrong with John Hall on kick-offs?

    • He doesn't have the leg after his injury - sign a kickoff specialist
      29
    • He needs to take a longer approach before kicking.
      11
    • Don't be so hard on him, he's fine.

It would make perfect sense. Brunell is washed up. Ramsey is a solid back-up. And Campbell needs a few more years to develop. Let's trade Lavar for Carson Palmer. Palmer is younger than Peyton Manning and is a better passer than Vick. He's the only player I can think of who is even in a class with LaVar, so it would be a perfect trade for both teams!!!

whats wrong with you man? I can think of a player in the same class as lavar.....Jake Plummer.

Do research before you write a stupid thread like this... he just signed a 9 year extension worth 118 million and he is getting 30 mil over the next 13 months

So, you don't want Carson Palmer?

I have a question, when Lavar sacks the opposing QB and the bengals get the ball, who will line up in place of carson? Oh, I know, Brunell or Ramsey, they will be part of the trade also.

There is no way the Bengals trade Carson.

This thread is a tongue-in-cheek jab at some of the crazy ones started this week.

In fact it's the second one started this afternoon by the same person. The only entertaining part left is the responses from those who don't know that it's sarcasm.

Oh I realize it's sarcasm. I'm just running with it.

Yo Barry.........................................

.....................This isnt Madden 2006. You just cant trade anybody on the team for anyone else in the league just because you want to.

Ive got a better deal for you, How about we trade LaVar, Brunell, and Farris to the Bengals for Carson Palmer, Chad Johnson, and Deltha O' Neal! That'd be perfect and it would work for both teams! :laugh:

Get outta here with that crazy talk. :doh:

Reason 3191305912 the merger was a bad idea.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: post of the day!

I know, I know, Ray Brown for Julius Peppers. It'd be perfect, Ray Brown brings old manism to the Panthers, and we get one of the top 2 pass rushersin the league. Old manism is a key factor in this NFL, teams w/o old men usually lose early.

(not to knock on Ray Brown, he's a decent guy)

After that let's sign up John Madden to take over Randy Thomas' position and give Ray Brown some rest.

Wow someone put me in the front office.

Dude, no offense, but if I was talking about Madden, I would have proposed a trade for Vick. He's a way better fit for my improvisational style of play.

Hey, why stop there? you think we might be able to get Chad Johnson off of them, too? We do need another wideout...

I thought something was up when he said Lavar had a 4 sack week against Dallas. Thats why I refrained from calling him many names questioning his intelligence.

The palmer trade I figured, hey maybe, but the lavar thing no way someone with that many posts thinks he had those sacks against dallas. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

If we're going to trade Lavar for Palmer, Cincy has to throw in some picks. Oh and of course Palmer would have to redo his contract to the vet minimum with incentives.
