      The Bill Callahan era began here at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. For the first quarter it was really,really bad football being played by both teams. 
      The Redskins were determined to establish the Run game. The First Quarter all they established was that they still couldn’t run. Or pass. Or do much of anything. 
       
      It wasn’t until the 2nd Quarter that Peterson was able to start ripping the worst Run D in the League for chunks of 18 & 24 yards. The Skins managed to score a TD with a 25 yard pass to Scary Terry McLaurin. 
       
      The Dolphins would open the Second Half only managing five plays before the Redskins would get the ball punted back to them. They would run a balanced run/pass attack of six plays for 70 yards in 1:25 ending in McLaurin’s second touchdown of the day. The Defense would then get a turnover allowing the Offense to get to Field Goal range and add another 3 points to make the score 17-3. 
       
      To open the Fourth Quarter, Hopkins would miss a 55 yard Field Goal, leaving the score at 17-3.  After being sacked five times, the Dolphins would pull their own switcharoo at QB and go to Ryan “Neckbeard” Fitzpatrick which resulted in a touchdown drive for them, making it 17-10. They went for & recovered the Onside Kick. They also managed to not score any points after that. The Dolphins would find theirselves with ball at the 2:00 Warning. Fitzpatrick would take them on a 9 play 75 yard touchdown drive with six seconds remaining on the clock. Miami went for the win with the 2 Point Conversion and failed. The Redskins would recover the onside kick by Miami and Keenum took a knee to get the Redskins their first win of the season.

One of several second half breakdowns last year. Lets all hope that they are prepared to play sixty minutes this year.

First loss of the season and to come like that...

One game we don't need to be reminded of. I hope they bust out the uni's again this year against the 'Girls, 'Birdies, or 'Gmen and we spank them!

I am not sure i can call u a redskins fan for not knowing this

In all fairness, I've tried pretty hard to block that game from my memory.

As well as the Bills game, the Pats game, etcetera and so on...

Am I the only one to find those throwback uni's hideous? Someone made a Ronald McDonald reference to those with a pic and it was pretty much dead on. Plus...I don't ever want my team ever to wear yellow! It's Burgandy and Gold (or whatever Zorn said).

I would like to see the throwback with the burgandy helmet and fletchings in the back. Very strong and unique...

Dude.. Is it just me, or is C.P. not wearing any socks?

Those appear to be some sort of "leg warmer" that end at the ankle.

Anyone else see that?

This was the only game I went to last year.

I still remember my buddy and I on the concorse at halftime with huge grins talking about how we were gonna be 3-0 and in control of the division.

Not a word was spoke on the way home...was a sad sad day.

Went to a bar in Charlotte and met some Redskins fans that are here on ES. I was thinking the same thing, 3-0. Then we started playing Riggo Drill and lost it.

Be glad if you don't remember that game. One of the saddest games to watch. It was all ours but then we choked and gave the Giants all the momentum in the world:puke: :whoknows:

I would like to see the throwback with the burgundy helmet and fletchings in the back. Very strong and unique...

Be glad we aren't in these.

I've never noticed that before. I think that you are 100% right.

The Skins didn't wear white at home when they had those uniforms in 1970-71...and I'm still mad at Gibbs for forgetting history in order to indulge his personal whims. Heck, the Skins wore burgundy jerseys at home with the 1994 throwbacks, why couldn't Gibbs put aside his irrational hatred of the burgundy jerseys for just one lousy game???

I knew that, hence the "I'm about to win a bet" (thanks for reading)....but to tell you the truth, it was a girl questioning me.

She still gets credit for being a big fan. She did know it was a divisional game.

What the hell does her being a "girl" have anything to do with her fandom? I'm a "girl" and I knew the answer to the question. Being female has nothing to do with it. But then again, you should see the look on some guys faces when I start to talk about football. Their eyes get big with the expression of, "how the hell does she know that?"

Would anybody like to see the Redskins add a Gold or a Black colored jersey as an alternative to wearing their white or burgundy tops? Keep in mind there are already several teams that have THREE tops to pick from on game day...not just two. The Lions, Eagles, and Jags wear black on occasion. A shiney GOLD jersey similar to the jersey worn by Georgia Tech players could be quite fashionable. Any thoughts?

merge-a-thon.

But I agree, Id like to see a black jersey. However, most people on the board hate the idea. Be ready to deal with them.

This is a discussion that pretty much happens once a month. But for me, I'd like to see the uniform we wore on week 3. I'd also like to see our burgundy tops more.

Not really.

But Gold with Burgundy numbers like the QBs wear in OTAs/Training Camp might be interesting.

I hate the black jersey trend. I could see a gold jersey with burgundy accents, but leave the black out.
