      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!

Seahawks are rebuilding and clearing house in a hurry ... looks like a real fire sale with Sherman and Lane on their way out and offers being taken for Thomas ... 

 

the he question is ...sitting 11 million over the cap- why did the eagles go for Bennett

They dumped Celek and Torrey Smith for 10 million and I think they had restructured lane Johnson for another 7.5 million. When Vinny Curry gets released that will be another 9.5 million. Some other moves popped up on twitter that I can't remember.  

That was a copy and paste from another MB.

Michael Bennett and Haloti Ngata.  Are they going to sign any DLine FA's that aren't at risk of breaking a hip? :rofl89::eagles_suck:

Actually he isn't too bad.  I live near Seattle so I, "Get to," watch a lot of Seahawks games (barf).  He just has some injury problems.  The Seattle fan base is one of the biggest bandwagon fanbases I have ever seen though.

Looks like Bennett is gonna suit up for the Federal Pen team next year.  Seattle probably knew about it and fleeced the Eagles.

Its hard to believe Seattle didn't know and even if he escapes the legal side of this I could see the league doing a 10 game ban or something pretty aggressive.

 

You cant bull rush old ladies.

Why did the Hawks give up Bennett for chump change? Cap move?

I wondered the same. One would think at least the Seahawks had to have known about this situation. I mean this is from last years SB not this years. It has been kicking around for a while. 

Politically this pits a paraplegic guard against a high profile NFL player who takes a knee during the National Anthem in Texas.

Thank you for linking an article. At the time I posted nothing was on NFL.com and I had just heard about it on 106.7.

With all the cameras around the stadium, I'd be surprised if there isn't video of this incident and wonder why it wasn't settled long before an indictment. If he just knocked her over as she tried to tell him to go another way.... wow. Somewhere Ole Rog is taking practice swings with the ban hammer.

I highly doubt Bennett will serve any time for this attempt to cut down an outspoken black athlete.

 

14 months to come up with the charge? All those police officers at the game and no one thought of it then? Smells like BS.

 

 

They are admitting this was crafted out of thin air.

Yes, police  way down in Texas decided to cook up this whole conspiracy  just to get a somewhat-known player from way up in Seattle (at the time).

 

I  mean, they don't have anything else better to do with their time. :rolleyes:

 

Why don't we give the story a little time before dealing the "race card" around.

 

It's a little early, even for you.

Not only the timing of this is interesting (over a year late) but also the fact that a security company hired to provide security for the Super Bowl would actually hire a 66 year old Parapalegic to guard anywhere in the stadium, yet apparently this one was guarding access to the field.

 

Now this is supposed to be the "most secure event on the planet" but this is the security at this event? Michael Bennett could have been toting a bomb but never fear because we've got somebody's great grandmother in a wheel chair guarding access.

I have to agree somewhat with Benning, this whole thing is just strange and doesn't add up on the surface as of yet. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

They clearly don’t. Hence why they waited  nearly 14 months to charge him with zero physical evidence.

I agree we need to let things play out before anyone jumps to conclusions but in your tweet, it says they have a police officer as an eyewitness, that's definitely evidence.

 

Making it sound like they have nothing at all is a bit of a stretch unless there is no eyewitness.

Go back and read what I said. “Physical evidence.”

 

They said they have no video or photograph of the incident. Also eyewitness accounts are not reliable. Especially one after 13 months.

 

And notice what the Police Chief said about Bennett. He mentioned crap about “his character” and other dog whistling BS. He also said the police couldn’t find Bennett even tho Bennett was interviewed on the field after the game. This is BS.

 

here is video of the “assault”
