      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!

Am I right?

I actually believe that the only playoff representative this coming season from the NFC East will be (gagging) Philly. I don't think any of the other three are ready this year. 2006 will be a totally different story.

That being said, if the Redskins make the playoffs this year, I will donate $100 to extremeskins.

Being a wild card is making the playoffs, straight up. What you are saying is, you will donate the money if the Redskins win the NFC East.

I don't see why more fans aren't putting more into the pot for the Eagles winning the Superbowl.

1. We all know that will never happen.

2. This site will need the extra money for bandwidth because of all the extra Eagles trolls that will sign up.

Come on, people, what is 25 bucks to pledge for the Birds winning the bowl. It's like 99.9 percent that they wont!

The way I see it, it's not betting against the Skins. If the Skins make the playoffs, I wouldn't care one freakin bit if I "lost" 50 bucks. And it wouldn't really be a loss of money since it would go towards this site.

Why doesn't everyone just donate 20 dollars to extremeskins right now as a show of good faith?

At the end of next season this thread will be brought back by popular demand. If you owe and don't pay up Sal and Carmine from the extremeskins family will pay you a visit.:stick:

If we make the playoffs next season I will donate 100 to the site.

Blade send me your new mailing addy and I will send you 20 of good faith money. If we make the playoffs I'll send 80 at the end of next season to total 100.

Dave,

What's happening?? Hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks for showing your faith in our team. You're money is safe because, we're making the playoffs "guaranteed". Stay in touch my bud. Take care.

$50 if we don't make the playoffs, $100 if we do. (Still think we need one more year before we can get to the playoffs)

If the Eagles, Cowboys, or Giants get to the SB, I'll donate an additional $50. I'll then up that to $100 if any of them WIN the SB.
