      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.

God Speed Kirk! Vikings did ok (Kirk Appreciation Thread) M.E.T.

Recommended Posts

MOD DIRECTIVE 

 

Keep this a simple appreciation thread for a parting Redskin per the norm, no “regurgitated for the billionth time” bait-worthy posts.

 

If you feel like you need to say something snarky or whatever, just don’t.

Thanks Kirk for being the best QB we’ve had here in decades, and being a major part of providing the team its strength in the passing game.

He gave Gruden and Co time to build up the rest of the team. Definitely appreciate that.

The best quarterback we have had IMO during my fandom which goes pretty far back.  

 

I second that and wish him well.

Me too.  I liked the way Kirk handled himself from the moment he came here in 2012 to his gracious farewell.  He deflected praise and took responsibility for mistakes.  Kirk made watching the Skins a lot more enjoyable for me these past 3 years because I always felt we had a chance to win with Kirk playing.

I think he handled the whole contract situation with a lot of class.  Good for him and good luck to him.

Congrats to a classy individual, who persevered and emerged with a great contract with the franchise of his choice.  

 

Congrats to the Vikings for getting the deal done.  

 

I wish all the best for you.

Hope Kirk does well in Minnesota.  He went from a guy I was rooting against to a guy who I wanted to stay, sadly he was too expensive for us.

 

I will be looking forward to what he can do on a team that has more tools.

Thank you Kirk for being our best QB of the past 2 decades, and for at least keeping things respectable.

 

And thank you, more than anything else, for maybe helping move Bruce out the door a little quicker.  If you accomplish that, we will love you forever.

Well it's good to see that both parties could part ways on seemingly good terms.

At least on the surface.

Although we all know that that all changes on the football field. As each party would have extra motivation to win a game between these 2 teams.

That probably won't happen this season though, except for playoff possibilities.

Succeeding in the NFL is hard.  Succeeding as a 4th rounder is harder.  Succeeding as a 4th rounder with no running game and a bad defense is even harder. 

 

Doing it 3 years in a row, for this organization, without missing any games, while staying classy with this area's media was damn near impossible.

 

Good Luck Kirk.  Wish you the best except when you play the Redskins.

I'd like to thank Kirk for humbling me.  I was convinced you were nothing but a loser that couldn't get out of his own head.  You proved me wrong.  Now go prove BruceDoug wrong and show the world that you are 'that dude'.  Do us one last solid and make this divorce so embarrassing that Danny boy has no choice but to light Redskins Park on fire and start from scratch.

Probably one of the best QB's in this franchises history, and we somehow blew it and let him walk with no compensation except the 3rd in the compensatory draft next year.. Congrats front office, I'm not blaming them for not wanting to sign him for that money with the roster we have, but I do blame them for not building the roster to warrant paying that kinda money for him..

 

At least the Chargers had an excuse to let Brees walk.

3 of the best statistical seasons the team has had at qb.  Three more years and he's probably the franchise's all time passing leader.  I'm sad to see him go.  I'll be optimistic about Alex Smith moving forward, but will probably always wonder what if on Cousins.
