JimmiJo in ES Coverage
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?
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.

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.
