      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.

      How do you like them apples?
      The Washington Redskins sent them home happy today. Along the way my ulcer started bleeding, I threw up twice, and peed the chair I was sitting in.
      Up by 10 at the two-minute warning, I did not expect to be hoping for a missed field goal to avoid overtime. But there I was, crossing fingers and toes and noticibly relieved when the ball bounced off the upright to seal the win.
      A lot of things had to go right for the Dallas Cowboys to even have a shot at the end. A lot more things went right for Washington.
      The Redskins held Ezekiel Elliot to just 33-yards rushing. They forced two fumbles by Dak Prescott, one of which went for a Redskins' touchdown, and sacked him a total of four times. 
      Ryan Kerrigan had his best day of the season, sacking Prescott twice, one of which caused the fumble for the score. Preston Smith scored the touchdown off of the fumble. Jonathan Allen and and Ryan Anderson each logged a sack. DJ Swearinger hit Prescott square on the ball to cause the other fumble by Prescott.
      And then there was the offense.
      Adrian Peterson defies time and physics in what he can still do on the football field. His ability to change directions instantly, the speed he still posesses, and his ability to play through multiple injuries is astonishing. He ran for 99-yards on 24-carries with a 4.1 yard per carry average. 
      Kapri Bibbs, the other back; added just 13-yards rushing. But as a receiver he caught 4 passes for 43-yards and the first touchdown of the game.
      Josh Doctson reeled in 3-receptions for 43-yards. Jordan Reed added 43-yards on his two catches. Maurice Harris logged 2 for 22-yards.
      Alex Smith had a adequate outting. He went 14/25 for 178 yards and a touchdown for a quarterback rating of 98.1. He was sacked once.
      His obvious miss of Jeremy Sprinkle running free in the end zone is almost cause for termination. Connect on that throw and the game is much more comfortable at the end. 
      The real stars of this show were the fat guys in the trenches. The offensive line that opened highway lane-wide holes for Peterson to run through, and the defensive line that wreaked such havok all game. 
       
      But we have to thank Dallas as well for things like an illegal snap to back the field goal unit up at the end. The holding call that negated the big gain one play before the sack/fumble/score was huge. They seemed to find ways to beat themselves.
       
      Despite the above, Dallas was right there until last miss that struck the goalpost. The win was entirely too close for comfort.
       
      But now that's it's over, I sure am enjoying the win.
       
      The Redskins sit alone at the top of the division after 6-weeks. They travel to New York next week where they can continue to help themselves with a win.
       
      But just because New York currently resides in the toilet does not mean they intend to roll-over and play dead. Washington will have their hands full if they don't get more production out of the offense.
       
      That's next week though. For now, I am intent on  enjoying an excellent victory. Against the Dallas Cowboys.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Talk soon!

I'm new?  Haha.  Been posting here for a long time and a Redskins fan for a lot longer.  

I don't consider 2016 to be a long time.  But it was more of a general statement.  It wasn't targeted at you, it just included you.

I had to work graveyard shift last night/this morning and accidentally slept through this game. Doesn't look like I missed out on much.


Was it just bad redzone offense that sunk us?

 

Bad O-Line work, bad running game, bad pass protection, and we got our typical fade route in the red zone. The defense carried us for a while but the dam burst at the wrong time lol.

Bad offense in every zone of the field. Our WRs can't catch a cold, Smith decided he was going to try and avoid throwing more than 4 yards for 80% of the game. Peterson been spending too much time with Fat Rob and seems to be learning from him.

 

Defense were actually not terrible, but got zero help from Offense or Teams.

You would think a guy who has Billy Kilmer as his avatar has been watching football long enough to KNOW ITS A TEAM GAME! Ever occur to you, maybe just maybe the Redskins and the teams Kirk played on weren't quite as good as you think or thought they were? You are going to learn my friend one way or another Kirk was a awesome QB on a **** team.

Cousins greed prevented the team from putting enough talent around him to win.  **** him

Makes no difference.

 

We don't have a Theilin that holds onto that ball for the TD. Or a Diggs that gets that open on a fade.

 

And he was bailed out on a bogus roughing the passer call.

 

Look, I'll explain this very simply. Alex Smith apologists decided to bring up Cousins, not me. I added a comment to those handful of posters who apparently could not resist the temptation to point out that Cousins threw an INT in the 4th quarter.

 

Then low and behold, Cousins drives the team down with a minute left and ticking and gets the game tying TD and 2-point conversion. 

 

It's that simple. 

 

The pimple poppers wanted to throw shade on Cousins in this thread to deflect criticism from Alex Smith and snyder, et al, and I simply pointed out, as it happens often in life, that when idiots get on their soapbox with smarmy comments, they get immediately shot down. 

 

That's all. Cousins is doing his thing and is clearly aggressively going downfield to win a game, while Alex Smith is ... the same he's always been.

Let me know when Smith does it here lol 

Oh he won’t.  He’s worse.  And in typical Snyder fashion we gave up legit talent and picks to get him.

No great conundrum here. Both sides of the line of scrimmage were beaten... a familiar refrain for Redskins fans lo these past 20 years. Smoot said is ages ago: get the best  footboys and you’ll win in this league.

Sure. 

 

Snyder is a verifiable loser. And Alex Smith is not a championship QB. 

 

If you're not trying to win a championship you are literally just stuck in mediocre. I'm sure snyder was hoping no one would realize that the organization is quite literally declaring that they are not trying to win a championship, just float along and pay the bills. 

 

I’m not sure what Snyder thinks anymore. I can’t imagine he’s still having fun owning this franchise and being a loser. Maybe he doesn’t care. Maybe he has too much of an ego. Bottom line: everything he touches with this franchise turns to crap. Every single decision he makes. He’s a terrible, terrible owner who doesn’t learn from his mistakes and hired dimwitted Jay Gruden to coach this team. Now, five years into Gruden’s tenure, we are getting totally outworked at home by a weak Colts squad.

If a gun were put to my head and had to decide to fire Bruce or Jay, I pick Bruce.  I think he is the greater of two evils.

 

Thoughts?

Trying to blog from the road or whatever you want to call it from the road and all I have to say was what the hell happened with the play-calling?

Trent Williams has not had a good start to this season....I know of at least 3 penalties he's had already in two games.He also looks heavy to me. 

The Skins holes showed up today including our play calling, as usual, vanilla.....meanwhile in Minnesota.

What you don't seem to grasp is that Cousins could be Dan Marino in his prime, but he's still a money grabbing BS merchant who didn't want to be here. You don't have to be an Alex Smith apologist to see that.
