      ES Coverage Cowboys vs Redskins
       
      10/21/18
       
      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.

well guys, unlike some people on this board, i refuse to go quietly into the night. if we win out the rest of our games, we still have a good chance of making the playoffs this year. and i still believe we have it in us to beat everyone on our schedule.

minus the pats game, all of our L's have come down to the wire. now it's a matter of just winning those games, rather than letting them be taken from us.

this is what being a fan is about. our playoff run begins against the Bears tomorrow. rally behind your team!

If we win out our chances are great. We already have tie breakers vs. Arizona and Detroit who both have tought schedules ahead of them. Minnesota has a fairly easy schedule from this point on and are coming on hot. But a loss to use would give us the tie breaker there as well. I can't say I'm confident in us winning out but I'll be cheering till the end regardless.

It made us all laugh at the time, especially since we actually got to the paloffs.

The way the NFC conference is at this point in the season, 7-9 would qualify for a sixth seed. We have to win our remaining games and hope those teams who are in the same boat as us lose out.

There is no reason why we should be 5-7 heading into the 13th week of the season. We should at the very least be 7-5. We start off moderately at best in games, then once the 3rd quarter starts, we show our jeckle and Hyde side. Inconsistency and poor execution is the reason why we're not a winning team right now. But then again, 9-7 is reachable.

We also need a lil' help to get into the paloffs, even if we win out.

A loss from the Cards, Lions, Saints and the Panthers.

The Cards and Lions need to have a loss for us to have the same W-L and thus take the head-to-head tie breaker.

If we beat the Vikings, we'll own the head-to-head over them.

The Saints and the Panthers have a better NFC record than us- which would award them the tie breaker.

i have faith that the cards and lions will take care of themselves. losing fitz, boldin and williams respectively puts them at a serious disadvantage to begin with

i dont believe the panthers can go too far with vinny at the helm. surely they will lose to jax this weekend

the saints still have games against philly and chicago (soldier fields closer, i believe), so im sure they will drop one of those games

and we will beat the vikings

i know everyone hates speculation. but the ball is in our court in my opinion. win out, and we are headed to the post-season

How come in the beginning of the season we won all of those "close games"; (ie. vs. Philly #1, vs. Cards, vs. Jets) but now we can't seem to win them?

with the loss of half of our starting secondary, we just cant stop the pass in the second half as well as we were before
