      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...

I’m really confused with the Galette situation.  I thought he looked to be worth another shot this season at a bargain.  I know he had certain expectations that haven’t been met but he has to be in vet min territory by now, man I wrong?

After he trashed everyone at Redskins Park? Slave wages? I dunno, maybe they pretty much said "**** you" and moved on.

Vikings cut Cobra Kai in favor of a rookie. Looks like his length strength just isn't good enough these days.

 

I think that length strength is an underrated quality in kickers these days. :)

Well, he and Zimmer do have a preexisting professional relationship.

That's ok I'd rather have Earl Thomas.

Yea, If Cousins doesn't win a superbowl with that defense... then he's never winning one.... Trent Dilfer could win another Superbowl with that defense.

Question is..can Kirk win a Superbowl with the o line he has..

I had no expectations we were even in the mix.  

I didn't either, because they really seem to love Nicholson.

All Kirk really needs to win a SB is a receiver with 6 foot long arms to catch all the passes he'll throw behind him.

My initial impression is that McPhee is a better all around OLB while Junior is a better pure pass rusher. Since (hopefully) we'd only need our 3rd OLB to play in situational downs, would Junior be a better option? I'd love to be able to say that Anderson is our next great one, but I haven't been getting that vibe at all. But maybe he could be our all around OLB#4 if we let McPhee go.

Will be interesting to see what McPhee and Anderson do during the actual season because neither has passed the eye-test so far for me.

I think Anderson is doing exactly what he's being asked to do... and it's not flashy.

McPhee reminds me of Ricky Jean-Francois. Solid build but nothing special.

More important than that he needs a team meeting so they can formally announce him as a team leader.

McPhee is worlds above Junior in the running game and has 10+ sack potential, while also being healthy as a backup/relief to Kerrigan and breakout candidate Preston Smith with Ryan Anderson waiting in the wings.... Junior has sack potential but I think isn't mentally all there and oft-injured.

We have released RB Charcandrick West.

 

Too many Candricks in the kitchen spoils the broth.

They signed Scandrick, and had no choice but to release Charcandrick.

He couldn't even catch on as their #3.

 

Couldn't that be said about any RB that will be cut ?

Ironically, they are giving him Adrian Petersen's jersey number.

EDIT : Nevermind, now they're saying he won't.

I had heard Anderson was having a good camp, lost weight and reshaped his body so he was more fluid.
