      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. 
       
      JimmiJo
       
      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!

I've done business with RFKFedEx and it went as smooth as a baby's bottom. I've also purchased tix for paige3girl at least twice. I've done business with others too, but don't recall the names at the moment.

I suggest we keep conversation at a minimum in this thread, and I also suggest that those who give feedback edit existing posts rather than make a new post for every entry. That way we have a series of lists rather than a huge collection of one-entry posts.

Another idea is to use the "Search This Thread" link provided above to research names within this specific thread.

Here's some of the members I've dealt successfully with:

RFKFedEx - Five Stars

SC RedskinsFan - Five Stars

Paige3girl - Five Stars

Teddy833 - Five Stars

Toe Jam - Five Stars

isle-hawg - Five Stars

Skinsfan1311 - Five Stars (picked me up a couple nice cigars from outside the CONUS for cheap)

Can't remember them all off the top of my head...

???? - Bought tickets from me. Went smoothly.

Mayers - Bought tickets from me. Went smoothly.

Kingspaaade - Bought tickets from me.

Glockypoo - Bought a parking pass from me. Parking pass never made it to him but he was very understanding.

Unless someone really screws me over, I won't post anything negative. Just positives.

Forgot to add, I never bought anything directly from Mark The Homer but he guided me toward a great deal on a parking pass. This is one guy that truly helps people out and gets nothing in return.

I have done a couple transactions, and most recently, I bought one of pr11fan's CP autographed footballs. We had great communication, fair price, fast shipping, so basically, everything went smooth.

On a side note, I just wanted to mention last year a member, DRSmith, gave me an amazing seat for my grandfather, which in turn, allowed us to go to our first game ever. I will probably never forget what was done for us and just felt it deserved mention. ES truly rocks.

I'll continually update this post.

I'll start my feedback thread here.

Teddy833 gets a solid grade from me. Sold me some really good hockey tickets at a great price. Met me before the game and delivered the goods. He's a good man to deal with.

I bought tickets for the Cardinals and Rams game from TGateNGDad....he sold me great seats and a parking pass at face value. Transaction and communication/meeting for exchange was very smooth, hope to buy from him again.

Also bought uppers for the Cardinals game from Ballin86. Again very smooth communication and transaction, would also do business with him again.

Both these guys seemed to be stand up guys and were great to do business with.

Two months ago, I traded mine for a hockey jersey with a friend. He's a Dolphin fan and I have him rooting for the Skins now as well. It was a win win for both of us :)

*Also, buyer feedback for rd421 - quick payment and good communication 5 star!

Not sure how I've missed this thread until now, but here it goes...

Mark The Homer offered me a pair of lower level, sideline seats at face value for the Ravens game last year. Although I didn't end up needing the tix, the offer was well below market value. A solid A for ES karma. Hell, I'll throw him an A+ for the killer tailgate he organized.

Gary Clark Fan hooked me up w/ a pair in section 101 for the Eagles game last year. He only charged me face value! A third gen. STH selling to another third gen STH. A+ transaction.

Lloyd's Mongolian Beef hooked me up w/ a pair of Caps tix at center ice back in January. He charged face value. A+ transaction.

Thanks to Phoward for informing us of the great green parking giveaway day last August.;) He was very cool when I sent him to the turnstiles with the wrong tix back in preseason.:doh:

I've never had any trouble buying or selling with ES people.

Good thread Zoony.

Bought a pair of tickets & green parking pass from Ron Jeremy a few years back. Smooth transaction. But the seats were a bit...sticky.
