      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!

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.

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.
