      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.

The Florida Tuskers were not good.  The Washington Florida Tuskers are also not good.  The Head Strength and Conditioning coach got the job because A. He was on the Florida Tuskers staff(his only qualification for an NFL job), and B. Because the nephew of our head coach left.

 

The nepotism is revolting, and I have no doubts its why we had a terrible Strength and Conditioning staff for years.

Yikes, that's rough.

 

I mean, losing 3 starters for the year is one thing, but how do you lose 3 in one game on one side of the ball?

Well that blows.

 

Next men up. Atlanta beat the snot out of us with two backup guards against or vaunted d line. Let’s see what gems we can find to see if we can gut out a playoff appearance. 

 

I know we’re upset, but we need to realize other teams get hurt too and still succeed. We as a fan base shouldn’t simply accept this as the reason for failure when Philly loses their starting QB and LT for the year and still wins a Super Bowl.

This is the kill shot for the Jay Gruden era.  We will have the excitement of a clean slate rebuilding project for 2019.

 

And honestly, I can live with that.

We really need a complete makeover on offense this offseason, we could get rid of the entire offense besides Trent and Scherff and I wouldn't lose any sleep, we have to get guys in here that have a history of being healthy.

And the overwhelming weakest side of the ball at that :/

Who’s fault is that, then? Coaching? Scouting? If your backups are that inferior to your starters, why did you keep them? 

 

Point is, this can’t continue to be a “wave the white flag mulligan” that some (myself included) used last year.

Hes gone.

 

Snyder won’t invest in land and build a practice facility that’s worth a damn as he still after losing millions doesn’t get where the issue starts.

 

He will blame Jay and fire him and offer us a new coach but I’m telling you until they catch up to 2018 this problem will not go away.

 

Doesnt matter who is playing or coaching.

 

The current practice facility they make the players use is so small it doesn’t even have a basketball court. It sucks and it’s way behind the times. 

 

There is no money in this for the owner so he ignores it year after year and they keep being the most injured team in the league year after year. 

 

No human being can fix this outside of the owner and he’s too stupid to understand why this keeps happening

We finally added an injury prevention center .. which I hope is legit and comparable to other well run teams and not some cheap crap.

 

Field ... we have to go turf. What do we use Bermuda, not a good winter weather grass.

 

I know the field didnt directly cause any injuries (like RG3s) but it has to be addressed.

Well, that pretty much ends this season.

 

By that, I mean I doubt we win another game.

 

or .... we rally.

 

Jay and Alex get the quick passing game going. CT comes back and gashes teams. Defense steps up and plays lights out.

 

We roll man. By roll I mean we win 4 more games.

Year after year this franchise is at the top (bottom?) of the league for Adjusted Games Missed.  And too many fans chalk it up to dumb luck or a curse or whatever.  That provides cover for Snyder and Allen.

 

The reason we have more injuries than the average every year is because from the top down the franchise doesnt care about player training and recovery.  We practice soft in the spring, we let players train on their own, we have light drills for training camp, we rest starters in ps games, we ignore players collegiate injury record and brag about how we got "2nd round talent" in the 4th round.

 

This will NEVER EVER end as Dan owns the team.

What are we missing at the practice facility that would reduce injuries?  What do other teams have that we don't?

Scherff and Richardson are upper bodyinjuries, so is Trent. Grass is not the issue. For the most part, the knees, bless them, have been ok this year.

So....they knew since training camp that Paul Richardson was dealing with this injury the entire time but didn't address bringing someone in when there were plenty of valid options out there.  Sheesh.  #Redskins

Yea, I keep hearing it's the facilities.

Seems like you shouldn't need state of the art facilities for reasonable injury prevention. Seems to me, it's something you can do without fancy equipment.

I mean what did players do decades ago, without this equipment and facilities, and they didn't seem to have more injuries ?

I can perceive how state of the art facilities can improve injury rehab, but not seeing how it improves injury prevention.

Not saying it can't happen, just asking someone with more knowledge on the subject, how it happens ?
