      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.

Was it Jordan that popularized the phrase "You reach, I teach"?  Had to be a Bullets player in that gif, sigh, womp womp.

Looks like it'll be the same old story of acting like this:

When in reality you're more like this:

Seed of doubt now firmly planted, and they likely will not recover.

Our next game is in Cleveland, too, won 3 of our last 4 there, but we look like hot garbage in Houston right now.  They aren't combining the best of what works with Wall and "Everybody Eats" or getting Wall more off-ball looks, and its pissing me off.  It looks like we've learned nothing from that experience, but we still have time.  

 

I'd never bet on Kyle Lowry.

Cavs are beating y’all by 40

Russ's motor is unreal, he going to lose this game but damn he played harder than anyone on the court. 

Quinn Cook has a been a steal. He can play

Beat us, maybe, but by 40, that's not how our games have been lately.  Worry about your own problems.  Is Jimmy Butler going to be back before Curry?

Paul George and Melo both are overrated.

It won't matter, the Warriors will still have the best player in that series.

You still going to feel the same way when you get to the WCF and the MVP is waiting for you as well, I suppose, right?

 

I'm not ready to say Harden is better then KD, but can you make the argument he's having a better season right now?  How does that factor into your statement, which makes sense, btw.

Doesn’t factor into it at all. Harden will be the third best player when Curry and Durant step on to the court.

Well, now that Kyrie is done for the season things aren’t looking great for the Celtics.

persevered through Hayward only to lose Kyrie.

Look on the brightside. It'll be quick and painless. Then you can regroup and look forward to a better and brighter 2018-2019. :)

I know football is a game of attrition and the playoffs often come down to just who has more healthy bodies.

 

But the NBA is brutal in that injuries can literally take all the fun out of the playoffs.

They'll go down fighting.  Stevens is too good a coach to let them roll over.  That said, I hope the Wizards stay at seven and you guys or Milwaukee get the sixth seed.

 

They were never going to beat Cleveland even if they were fully healthy.

How about Philly?  12 in a row.  Going to get to the 50 win mark well before the Wizards ever do.  Blessed be the schedule Gods.  Ben Simmons is the ROTY and Brett Brown should get votes for COY.

Coach a team that was in contention for the first overall pick last year to 50 wins, led by a rookie and a second year player.

Nah, they tanked on purpose. That doesn't count. And their schedule has been charmin for a month. Also, Snyder has done a better job replacing Hayward with the real rookie of the year. Simmons is not a rookie.

If the best player mattered as much as people think it does Houston is a prohibitive favorite.  

 

And Lebron wouldn't have lost to an old spurs team or an older Mavs team.

Better player this season.  One of the best iso scoring performances we've ever seen.  

 

Because of that, the backlash if he fizzles in the playoffs is going to be enormous.  Similar to what happened when Curry choked in the finals.  Went from new face of the league to.. "he's good, but" in the blink of an eye.
