      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.

Have fun playing the JV team from washington.  Should be a fun little game where the Pack can get healthy and have a great time for 3 hours, beating up on all of the ******* on our roster.

I'm always nervous about playing you guys. The year we won the SB we lost to you guys in Washington then 2 years ago you beat us bad on Sunday night football. Best wishes, here is to a great game with no injuries. The Skins have always been a classy team as well.

 

 Damn; you again?

JK, but can you tell Rodgers to not thoroughly embarrass us? 35-10 is ok, just don't go stormtrooper on us, we're depressed as it is.

You'll be beating us by 21 points. Then one of our players will INT Rodgers and celebrate like we are about to finally catch up and beat your team. Then the same player will high step about 15 more yards and celebrate again with the team for emphasis.

 I'm currently building a custom teardrop trailer.

Looks like i'll be getting a lot of work done on it sunday.

Thanks, you just reminded me, you made me think of Snyder and that reminded me to install a toilet in it. Dan is the brown floating log.

The strong, gusty wind was certainly knocked out of our sails in the Colts loss, but this will be the test. I highly doubt that our D will brick wall Aaron Rodgers, so this offense will be forced to push it. The Packers D is a train wreck and they don't have the former Cowboys' coordinator like the Colts did (if that excuse is valid), so if we can't put up points in this one, I'll have a real hard time holding out any hope for this season. 

Packers D was a train wreck last year due to the entire secondary being injured (again).  Now we've got DBs for miles (though Kevin King is hurt again 😕).  Even if King is out, that still leaves the rookies Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson who look really good so far, and veterans Tramon Williams and Davon House rounding out the top 4 CBs.  Clinton-Dix is a great all-around safety, and Brice a solid SS.  The D-line is scarey with Daniels, Clark, and now Wilkerson added to the mix.  With that kind of push up the middle combined with Matthews and Parry rushing the edges, Smith will have to keep his head on a swivel.  And Blake Martinez in the middle lead the league in tackles last season.

 

Don't think they'll just roll over and let the game turn into a shootout.

Hey @ThePackisback do you mind asking Rodgers to take a day off on Sunday? I read an article that said Aaron Rodgers has concern his knee will get worse. A day off will do him some good :D 

Rodgers is injury prone. He won't make it through the whole season without blowing it out as much as I hate to say it.

I used an old trailer frame I had and went from there.

It crossed my mind about doing the interior with a Redskins motif, but this is 'Mark 1' so its not gonna be as nice so i'll just go the usual or camo.

It WILL have a few safety features, just in case an unwanted animal, or, criminal, decides they want to try and enter. You know those damn Cowboy fans, they think they can take whatever they want, so I'm gonna paint the door like their endzone so I know they won't be able to cross...

I'm dead.

 

But seriously, I'd like to see us dominate.  Never mind, that's far fetched.  I'd like to see us win comfortably.

You guys will win but I'd be seriously concerned with Rodgers playing on a bum knee on the horrible FedEx turf. The turf monster has devoured many a great athlete(see: RG3, Adrian Peterson just to name a couple).

Honestly, with Rodgers injured, and playing an away game... I think the Skins have a better chance than their fans give them credit for.  I think Rodgers is the best QB in football, but the Packers could easily be 0-2 right now if 1 play went different in each of their games (Chicago defender dropping a pass that hit him in the chest, and Minny missing a chip shot field goal).

Or 2-0 if not for a bull**** roughing the passer call on Matthews...

Atually @PokerPacker you picked the wrong week to play the Redskins. Gruden's teams typically lay and egg, play well, lay and egg, play well, wash-rinse-repeat.

 

Since we laid an egg last week, I expect them to play well this week, then get blown out by the Saints after the bye.

 

The Packers might still win, and probably will, but it would have been easier if it was last week, or every alternating week after the bye week.

The 2010 Super Bowl victory would not have happened without a stout D coming together.  Gotta be able to play all three phases of the game.
