      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.

Maybe for you...

Frankly I see it as "Sweet a chick that won't make me do something I don't want to do" (Quitting... At least not now)

It's actually about +.3 on the 1-10 hotness scale...

^^ Never said I still wouldn't :hump: a hot chic that smoked. But they definitely wouldn't be a keeper.

^^ Never said I still wouldn't only have a one night stand with a chic that smoked. But they definitely might be a keeper.

BTW do you know of any bars that are looking for bartenders?

My boss went up to one of my tables the other day and said "Sorry you have to look at this ugly ass mother ****er" because I'm the only male bartender at my place and I was the only bartender working that day.... (IIRC, you live in my neck of the woods)

Nah, I don't live in your area.

But your boss sounds like a real douche. I wouldn't put up with that crap. I would let him know real quick that wasn't cool. Good luck with finding a new job though.

Why definitely not ?

I guess this is addressed to me? I could only take so much of a girl that smoked. 1. Its really bad for your health, and the health of others. 2. It costs too damn much. 3. Its disgusting. About the only redeeming quality that I can think of, is probably 95% of chics that smoke, put out.:pfft:

I agree with that 9 out of 10 times. Basically with women who smoke as a constant habit. I know some girls who only smoke once in awhile though, depending on the occasion/mood/etc. I can over look that.

Tom Cruise is a crazy guy and all, but I'll still see his movies (when they're good, not stuff like Knight & Day).

Collateral is on TNT right now and he is awesome in this film.

ION, I don't really live near you either, I am in Charlotte. Sorry Bro.

Bubble, For me it would depend on how much she smoked, when and why. Although my lady has never smoked (besides trying it) according to her and her family which all of them smoked at some point. Hmmm... She is in the dental field though and was known as a goody two shoes as a kid.

I dont think all girls that smoke are sexy, nor do I believe most are easy.

I only dated one woman that smoked in my life. But only about 5 per day.

I'd honestly be willing to drive 85 everyday for a place that paid >$250/night...

Yeah, I agree with you and Spartacus on this. If it was just every blue moon, sure, I could probably deal with that. But I was talking about the habitual ones. Disgusting.

In that Saturn ? How much longer is it going to last ? :silly:

You work in a restaurant not a club right ? You are going to need to experience a lot more volume than 300 bucks an hour to get a gig here that you can make 250 a night.

EDIT: You might be able to get into a place like Morton's or Capital Grille though. Now that I think about it. I will ask my buddies.

ION, I posed this question the other night. Have you ever tried the Jeremiah Weed stuff? I've heard good things about it. Was thinking of trying it out. Is it any good?

Especially if she was smoking hot and had potential. :ols:

Saturn's gone...

The restaurant I worked at previously ran >$500/hr on average (The record they did was $13k on a UFC night), I'm at a pizza place now that might not have even broken $13k/week. I can sling drinks without a problem, honestly I prefer that, because I don't have to milk tips out of people.

Actually one of my best friends works at Bar Charlotte (Went to HS at South Rowan before moving to Arkansas) and I've been thinking of asking if he will let me know when they've got openings...

Right now it's a job that pays the rent... Nothing more, I eat out 1 or 2 times a month so I can still pay my bills... If I can find a job that pays me 50% more, I'll drive to F'n Miami every day...

Alright... Here's the review...

Strong bourbon taste, mild tea flavor afterward, I personally prefer Firefly... My roommate actually went to the ABC store and they were giving out A CASE for anyone who was looking to buy Firefly...

BTW I didn't drink it, swished it around in my mouth and spit it out, because I HATE the flavor of tea..
