      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.

Hopefully we will hear some updates on Quinn and Sims soon. Fingers crossed

So basically high ankle sprains and they will let us know if surgery is required.

More interested in Harris, to be honest. If he's available, then you're looking at a ST problem. If he's not, you need a 4th WR who can play WR.

 

I think we're going to have a @TK thread here soon "Redskins Make Roster Move" saying they IRed Quinn and re-signed Quick to the 53 man roster.  

 

Question will be, who's the punt returner...

 

Perhaps Bibbs will be called up?

I get that, but IF Quinn is out for an extended time, do we really have a good option to replace Crowder if he also gets injured? And Crowder is one of our 3 WRs left standing, so my risk averse personna is coming out. We could put Bibbs on active with a demotion to Samaje, that would still leave 2 WR spots open if such a move is necessary.

Hmm... You mean like move Samaje to PS? Can you even do that while he's injured?  Feel you on not risking Crowder, think our hand is getting forced on that one.

I suspect they dont have a backup PR after Crowder.  They'll get somebody who can at least just field the punt essentially and not have it rolling around.  Unless it was a long term thing.

Doesn't Greg Stroman return kicks?

I'd like to get Stroman more involved. I have a good feeling about his Redskins' future, and he looks like he can contribute a bit year 1.

Sims to IR:

It was reported earlier today that Brian Quick was re-signing with the Redskins. The veteran was cut last week so Washington could keep two rookie receivers, Trey Quinn and Cam Sims.

Unfortunately both of the rooks suffered high ankle sprains in Sunday's win over the Cardinals and were carted to the locker room. They both got MRIs today, and we have been waiting to hear the severity of their injuries.

With the news of the Quick signing, it was expected that one or both of them were going to miss some time and possibly need to be placed on IR. Craig Hoffman reports that Cam Sims will be placed on IR, and will be replaced by Quick on the roster.

Maybe we shouldn't play rookie WRs?  Harris wasn't on the original 53 in his rookie year but two in one game?

We definitely have a rookie WR problem. Doctson too didn't play but two games (I think) of his rookie campaign.

Wow, brutal injuries continue for this team....Next year we'll have 3 rookies from this year and next years draft class all in their first year. Here's hoping Guice, Sims and Quinn all get healthy and are ready to roll next year.

Since Harris is still in concussion protocol, I'm guessing we're going to elevate Simmie Cobbs Jr. from the practice squad to replace Quinn.  Has anyone heard who will replace Quinn on the 53 man roster?

Skins new Recovery Center.

 

Mason Foster was on Galdi's show this morning and they talked about the Skins new Recovery Center that just opened up a few months ago. The Recovery Center has cryo therapy and weightless pools and im sure some other things.

 

He said before, players would have to travel all over DC to get particular treatments at particular places.

------------------

 

Murphy, 27, then began discussing the recovery center and its inception.

 

He said that after a loss last season when the injuries were mounting, he approached team president Bruce Allen to find out what could be done for the players to control and minimize what appeared to have become an epidemic.

A staff meeting was immediately called to discuss what could be done to help the players. It was then that the idea of a recovery center was conceived.

Murphy traveled with team officials to Indianapolis during this past NFL Combine to further investigate their vision. He went to a seminar at Liberty University to learn more about the project.

 

The OLB elaborated on how he was blown away after meeting former Navy seal Jeff Nichols, whom he described as ‘one of the brightest people I have ever met in my life.’

 

Murphy also gave credit to former Redskins dietician Robert Skinner, who is a performance dietician and exercise physiologist. Skinner has worked with several NFL athletes and Navy SEALs for Naval Special Warfare.

If it saves players time and effort, more will use it then.  You have to think that reducing the nagging injuries from getting worse will help the players avoid getting into spots where the serious injuries can occur.

I think the report(s) just said he was out of practice on Friday, not ruled out for the game.  Granted, that does not bode well for his chances of playing.  He is becoming quite the frustrating player, to me at least.  If I read the links incorrectly, I apologize.  Doc needs to get on the field and produce in short order or he will not have many suitors when he becomes a free agent.  WR needs to be prioritized in our next draft.  Hail
