      ES Coverage Cowboys vs Redskins 2019
       
      9/15/19
       
      Do I look like I'm playing? I'm not playing. This is the Washington Redskins versus the Dallas Cowboys. If you are a fan of this game, and this one does not get you excited you might want to check your pulse.
       
      Hello my friends it is I, JimmiJo, back for another year of this wonderful thing we call Redskins Football. This makes season 14 for me. I am joined by The Spaceman Spiff who will hereafter be known as "The Spaceman Spiff." 
       
      Where's that dude that gets the big tattoos on his back? There's his next one.
       
      So how important is this game? I don't know. What is the different between 1-1 and 0-2? The difference between batting .500 and zippy?
       
      Throw in that this is their 2nd division game to start the year AND a home game and you have a critical match.
       
      And once again they contend with critical injuries to start the year. Last year it was  their rookie star running back. This year its their 2nd year star...well you get the rest.  Darrius Guice is gone and not coming back this year. I think this really hurts him moving forward. Not sure who will build a scheme around him given his first two seasons.
       
      So it is down to the veteran Adrian Peterson. I have no worries of ring rust for hum. None whatsoever. He knows what to do.
       
      Anyway, almost time. Please share your thoughts.
       
      Stand by...

      Head coach Jay Gruden said it is not time to press the panic button when asked if staff changes could occur on the defensive coaching staff. It may not be for him, but he might want to pay attention to the sounds coming from the owners suite at Redskins Park.
       
      For example the sound of shouting and heavy objects striking walls could portend an early offseason for someone.
       
      The Washington Redskins are now 0-2 to start the season. They are 0-2 in the division.
       
      If that is not panic-inducing, they face a Chicago Bears football team (themselves in need of a solid win) on Monday Night Football next. A series they do not typically do well on.
       
      In both games to open the campaign the winning teams had the game well in hand at the start of the fourth quarter, despite Washington taking leads in each of the games.
       
      Against Dallas, the team began well again; taking a 7-0 lead into the second quarter. This was not quite the 17-0 start they had in Philadelphia. Nor did it take until halftime for the Cowboys to adjust.
       
      It happened on Dallas’ fourth drive. Starting at their own 3-yard line at 9:44 in the 2nd period, the Cowboys employed a combination of runs up the middle and quick outs in the flats and sideline to advance the ball 97-yards in 7 plays and tie the game.
       
      Following a three-and-out by Washington, Dallas went 74-yards on 11-plays to take the 14-7 lead at halftime.
       
      The 3rd Quarter began with the Cowboys receiving the ball at their own 25. Nine plays  and 75-yards later they were leading 21-7.
       
      The Redskins made it interesting with their own 11-play, 70-yard drive to cut he lead to 7.
       
      But Dallas responded with a field goal. And would add another touchdown in the fourth quarter to extend the lead to 17.
       
      Washington’s consolation score with just under 3-minutes remaining allowed rookie Terry McLaurin to add a touchdown to his debut season.
       
      The Redskins have developed a reputation for not responding well to adjustments. They had little answer for the adjustments Dallas made to their offense. Ditto the game in Philadelphia.
       
      In both, Washington had a lead to protect and could not.
       
      Coming into the season the defense was expected to the be the strength of the team. Yet in two games they have surrendered 910 yards (445 per game) and 63 points. Not exactly setting the world on fire.
       
      Statistically the Redskins defense are near the bottom in points allowed and yards surrendered.
       
      The coach wants to blame injuries. Not only the their excellent young nose tackle in Jonathan Allen, but also to the secondary which has already gone significant realignment to accommodate injuries to Quinton Dunbar and Fabian Moreau.
       
      Still, with the specter of a season going off the rails after only two games, the fans want someone to blame.
       
      Wont be the quarterback. Case Keenum has completed 68.2 percent of his passes. He has thrown 3 touchdowns against no interceptions.
      Ditto other skill positions. Adrian Peterson did not his best outing but the team abandoned the run early. The receivers are doling their own, with guys like McLaurin shining.
       
      And as bad as the collapse was last week and the home loss this, it feels too early to call for the head coach.
       
      That leaves those in charge of the defense. Specifically, Defensive Coordinator Greg Manusky.
       
      Fan ire seems more and more to be falling on Manusky, if sentiment on twitter and sports radio means anything.
       
      But they don’t decide who stays and who leaves. That is the job of the head coach who so far, is backing his guy.
       
      But there is a higher authority at Redskins Park. Legend has it owner Daniel Snyder once put a gallon of vanilla ice cream outside a Redskins defensive coordinator’s door following a poor performance by the defense.  
       
      Given the start to this season, Manusky could be hearing the ice cream truck in his sleep. And that would be better than what many of the fans are wishing for him.

Right, jus amazed there was any reference to a word that says one doesnt believe they exist.  Not a religion, not the point, I should not be shocked people are inventing words for everything now, english be like that.  Wish there was a wiki page, wheres the conference this year, lolz

Technically no it's not, but I dont think we should discuss it here, it's not a belief system it's a lack of belief.  Like someone who doesnt believe in dragons is not called a non-dragon believer

Saw Joe Rogan last night downtown.  What a funny and down to earth dude that talks about real ****.  Probably the one celebrity I'd want to meet the most. And smoke with.  

 

Also, weighted blankets FTW.  we've had a 10 lb joint for about six months, it's been money.  Wife ordered a 30-pounder this week and we tried it last night.  Felt like I was wrapped into a burrito, slept like a baby.

The most surprising growth of a celebrity I can think of.  From questionable UFC commentator, to fear factor host - to maybe the most famous MMA commentator ever, to one of the most famous stand-up comedians of this time, and one of the best (if not the best) podcasts hosts.  Some people still don't like his stand-up, I think it's really good.

 

Dude is a bonafide cultural icon of our time, in my opinion.

You forgot about his time co-hosting The Man Show.

I always think of Corolla and Kimmel when I think of that show.

 

There's a guy who never hit it really big, Adam Carolla.

 

That dude would have me in stitches when Love Line was just a radio show.  Used to stay up late on school nights to listen to it. I know there are classic soundbites on YouTube, but there are thousands of moments out there in the ether where dude was in the zone with his timing, sarcasm and bluntness.

Don't get me wrong, Kimmel and Carolla will always be the true hosts of that show.  I had a negative opinion of Rogan and Stanhope for awhile because The Man Show wasn't the same with them hosting.

As for Carolla never hitting it big, I'd say he became much bigger than he ever should have expected to, considering he was just a simple boxing instructor.  He happened to meet the right people and suddenly he was in show business.

I've put on some lb's over the years, needed one that fit looser :rofl89:  

 

My Kerrigan jersey is the only one that fits comfortably anymore (the Monk and Green fit ok), so I pulled the trigger.  Got a Mitchell and Ness burgundy Taylor this time, I have a closet full of jerseys.

 

RGIII, Theisman, Riggins, Cooley, L. Coles, Portis, Monk, Green, Orakpo, Haynesworth (lol - thank god it was free), Bailey, Arrington, burgundy Taylor and white Taylor.

 

I think that's all of them.  Wife has an RGIII and Doug Williams burgundy jerseys.  She usually wears Williams and my two Taylor jerseys even though they are huge on her lol.

I still sport my Marcus Washington jersey.

 

I think he's one of the most underrated players we've ever had.

 

The defense of that time is defined by Sean Taylor, but Marcus was a beast and a hype machine.  Dude would get everyone so pumped, loved him.

That awkward moment when you are helping friends move and you are standing right next to the wife and you pick up the nightstand to move it and something rubber, reddish-pink, about a foot long, and resembles a shaft and balls tumbles out and lands between the two of you. 

 

And you both stand there mortified-staring and not staring at the object and trying not to make eye contact with each other. 

 

Until you you finally realize that the object is actually just a dog’s chew toy where one end of the bone-shaped toy and been chewed off.  Both of you breathe a sigh of relief. She makes an overt show of calling the dog over to come get its chew toy.

 

BUT because of the stunned reaction, you are fairly sure that there was a similar sex toy in that vicinity in the recent past.
