      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!

So, what do you think it would take next year to get Jay fired? Let’s say that the defense doesn’t improve, and the offense doesn’t gel as fast as we’d like, and with the tough schedule we go 3-13... Does that do it? If it does, we need a new coach, and the new coach won’t want the old old qb, so we’ll have to rebuild with a new rookie qb... 3-4 years of rebuilding, again.

 

said in another way, what kind of record would it take for you to want jay fired and usher in another 3-4 year rebuild?

I honestly have no idea what's going on with the 'Skins since attention has been fully focused on Caps for the past 3-4 weeks.  I assume there were some practices, footballs were thrown and caught, and there's nothing truly major to report.

 

I've been in the stadium just a few times over the past several months...

 

Have some catching up to do...

I just discovered that being around an eagels or cowboys fan(during/before, after game time)makes me feel the same way Michael Scott acts when he's trying to be friendly/nice to Toby when Toby comes back from Costa Rica haha...

I'm bored on a Saturday night with nothing to do so I'm just watching the Inside the Redskins programme on NBC 4. Good insight on minicamp activities. Getting amped for training camp in a month.

ESPN has our pivotal game of the season as the New Orleans Saints contest but I always thought that the season seems to go well when the Redskins win at the Giants in the Meadowlands 

Whats everyone else think the "must win "game is?

Not always. 2012 and 2015 we lost @ the giants, and made the playoffs. However, 2016 we won there and missed out. 

 

To answer the question though, i think week 1 is a “must-win”, just cause Gruden hasn’t had a week 1 win yet in his time here. We can beat Arizona, even when not fully healthy, as we showed last year in December.

Yep.

 

And exactly one month before the Redskins report to training camp (report 7/25; first practice 7/26).

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2018/06/28/josh-norman-apologizes-for-amari-cooper-rant-having-been-duped-by-jonathan-allen/

 

 

Norman said it was a Redskins defensive lineman than went to Alabama that told him of the comments Cooper and Crabtree never made. The only player that fits that bill is Jonathan Allen.

“Basically, I found out that he lied to me about the whole thing. So I’m like, ‘He didn’t say all that?'” Norman said, via Mark Inabinett of AL.com.

Norman said Allen replied: “Nah, man. I just really wanted to win, man.”

For Norman it was the equivalent of disparaging water to Bobby Boucher.

 

 

That's hilarious, I like Jonathan allen even more now.

I just bet a guy on my jobsite 20 bucks that we'd have a better record than the bears this year. 

What do you think my chances of winning that bet are?

That's a bet the old lady and I have each year.. with her being a Bears fan.. that's actually a pretty good bet.. with biscuits in his second year and I think Nagy will make a difference..
