      VICTORY!!!
       
      Redskins 23 - 17 Panthers
       
      Will the real Washington Redskins please stand up?
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here, joined by the Spaceman Spiff. 
       
      Seriously, which team will we get to see today. The one solid in all quarters, playing fundamentally sound ball and making us believe that just maybe, this year they could be hanging around at playoff time? Or will it be the one who decides not all receivers should be covered? You know, the one that seems to believe no national embarrassment is too great to suffer.
       
      If I am on this team on this day, I am playing like I have been punked-out on national TV (because I was) and I have something to prove. I am playing with a degree of urgency yet to be seen this year. I am playing like the season is on the line today. Because it literally is as far as I am concerned.
       
      Speak amongst yourselves...
       
      inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 39 CB Adonis Alexander
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 77 G Shawn Lauvao
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
      o   No. 99 DL Caleb Brantley
       
      Ok gang, showtime. Here's to a good game with no injuries. You can follow me live on Twitter @Skinscast. 
       
      See you at the half.
       
      Half
       
      Great start, poor ending. They need to produce in the 2nd half to win.
       
      JimmiJo
       
      This team is consistently inconsistent.
       
      I’m just glad I caught them on the good week. And if there was ever a time to go for two in a row, it’s this week.
       
      I was poised to ask the players how much last week had to do with this. I didn’t have to. Most of the guys I interviewed spoke about getting the bad taste of last week out of their mouth.
       
      To a man they wanted to put it behind them. No better way than to do so with a win against a 3-1 Carolina Panthers. The win preserves Washington’s first place position in the division.
       
      If we are looking for heroes we have to start with Adrian Peterson. Coming in with multiple injuries (shoulder, knee, ankle), all he did was run for 97-yards on 17-carries with a 5.7 yard per carry average. The man is ageless, looking more like a first-year back rather than a guy near the end of his career.
       
      On the other side of the ball was Josh Norman. It was clear in speaking to him following the game that the chatter in the media was starting to get to him. This game was important enough for him that he called a defensive backs meeting this week to get everybody on the same page.
       
      Norman payed like the all-star the Redskins signed in 2016. In fact, the interception was his first since week 16 of 2016. But he wasn’t done. Norman punched out the ball to force a fumble later on a critical drive, robbing the Panthers of an opportunity to score.
       
      Given the talk about Norman and the manner in which the New Orleans Saints bludgeoned Washington last week, it was fitting the game came down to a defensive stand that resulted in Carolina giving up the ball on downs.
       
      This was a total team effort for Washington, with all areas contributing.
       
      Alex Smith went 21-of-36 for 163-yards and two touchdowns. He finished with a passer-rating of 88.1.
       
      Jordan Reed had a relatively quiet five receptions for 36-yards to lead the receivers. Vernon Davis on the other hand, made some noise bringing in 3-receptions for 48-yards to include a beautiful touchdown grab on a seam route that left him largely uncovered.
       
      Smith did such a good job of looking off the safety that by the time he turned back to fire down field, Davis was running free and clear into the end zone.
       
      Another hero on the day was Dustin Hopkins. All he did was kick a 6-yard field goal, the longest of his career. I asked the coach if he had discussed the kick with Hopkins prior to making the decision. Gruden told me it was special teams coach Ben Kotwica who proclaimed Hopkins ready.
       
      “I thought it was a 53-yarder,” said Gruden. “When I heard it was a 56-yarder I thought about calling a timeout.
      He didn’t and Hopkins made him look smart.
       
      The Redskins fare best when they score first. They must be aware of this as they started red hot, jumping out to a 17-point lead before the Panthers got off the snide.
       
      A total of 9-unanswered points later, Washington scored early in the fourth quarter to bring the lead back to 11. That lasted officially 1-drive, as the Panthers marched down with relative ease to score a touchdown and bring the game within 3.
       
      Washington then mounted another drive to register another field goal to take the lead back to 6.
       
      Then a defensive stand was needed.
       
      Carolina was able to move the back to the midfield with relative ease. Washington tightened up and it all came down to a 4th-and-5 at the Redskins 16 with 38-seconds remaining.
       
      That was as far as they would go as Cam Newton skimmed the ball off of the field for a harmless incomplete.
       
      It was a much need win. It keeps the Redskins in 1st place in the division at 3-2 with Dallas coming to town next Sunday.
       
      What’s not to like?

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!!!

OH MY GOD!

I can't even express how ****ing dumb that comment sounded.

...you just make more work for the moderators...

:doh:

The cap hit we would take is amazing...

:doh:

Barry ... they keep on coming ... this definitely is the longest running ... most entertaining thread ever. What's everybody gonna do when the deal goes down. Oh by the way, what are we to do about Carson's number. Has Sonny already given his consent.

wow dude check your facts and football knowledge. here are my points:

1) carson was not only signed until 2014 by the bengals, he also has the richest contract in NFL history, which would chatter our cap even with $13 million in cusion (which is NOT the case)

2) lavar is going to stay a redskin, no doubt in my mind, plus he is a better value to our team than palmer would be

3)campbell is ready to go in 2006, and with your trade plan he would not play until 2015 becuase of carsons contract, which he would never renegotiate after becomeing the richest player in NFL history

it would not be a perfect trade for all these reasons, but the biggest one is commin up in number 4!

4) BOTH teams need to agree with the trade and there isn't a snowballs chance in hell that the bengals would ever agree to it

Its great for the Skins, but I fail to see why the Bengals would do it.

Carson was one of the Top 5 QBs last year. Why trade him for a LB?

Carson Palmers career is over. That hit to the knee in the playoff's will haunt him forever. The Bengals just lost a LOT of money on that investment.

The fact that some(i.e. most) posters believe this is a genuine thread speaks volumes to the quality of posts started recently.

i dunno, i know its too fun to not laugh with/at, and full credit to barry for the good gag, but the truth is we read enough "for real" whacked and stupid stuff on here that it's pretty excusable to get taken in by what just looks like another one a little extra-stupid...especially if you're newer, or never registered barry's posts in your memory...

i know we all love that smarter-than-thou feeling of "gettin it" but outside of being fun, its hardly some revealing indicator of crap that ain't alreay well-established and that we're all guilty of at some point...

...that said...kepp 'em coming :laugh:

This thread is obviously wack and deluded. Palmer is injured, it should be clear that he will be traded for Ben Roethlisberger now.

You know, this joke thread actually makes some sense now. Palmer is coming off a devastating knee injury. So this trade is more feasible than it was when it was first suggested. :laugh:

Sarcasm pill for autism patients

by ALEXANDRA FREAN

London, May 23: Scientists in Israel have cracked the complicated cognitive code that determines whether individuals are able to understand sarcasm. Yes, right.

. . . .

“I’m not sure this study implies that people who don’t get sarcasm have brain damage,” she said, tactfully. “Maybe they just have problems understanding other people’s state of mind.”

I took my medication today. Did you? :)

yeah good idea, give up an amazing young, MVP, rising star pro bowl QB on a team which is based around...and just signed a 6 yr 98 million dollar contract...for LaVar which ppl say is losing his value (but us skins fans no how amazing he is) i think thats fair no?...stupid comment...

I'm closing this because I don't want to see this on the front page EVER again.

It's downright embarassing that people can't help themselves from keeping it on the front page... even though they know how ridiculous this trade scenario.
