      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.

2019 Washington Nationals Thread - National League Championship Series --Slay the Devil Magic (Nats Lead 2-0)

Recommended Posts

Randy Knorr is coaching at Fresno.  Bring him up.  I don't see what value Davey brings right now.  That's what i usually look at a coach.  I thought he would be the leadership being under the Cubs manager i forget his name but this has been total garbage so far.

List of Nationals managers since their inception:

Frank Robinson

  • Manny Acta
  • Jim Riggleman
  • Davey Johnson
  • Matt Williams
  • Dusty Baker
  • Davey Martinez

 

If I had to rank them in order of best to worst, I'd go like this:

Davey Johnson

Dusty Baker

Frank Robinson

Jim Riggleman

Matt Williams

Manny Acta/Davey Martinez - tied currently for worst manager

Slim line between Johnson and Baker. Johnson also had a dud in 2013. Baker led back to back NL East winners and took both opponents to 5 games.

I’d put Matt Williams in the bottom tier category before Davey. Davey, while he clearly inspires zero confidence with fans and results have been sub-par, has had a rough hand dealt with both bullpen and injuries.

 

Matt Williams had a veteran player screaming at him in the clubhouse. If that happens to Davey I will amend my rankings.

Davey is going to get time now because his 3B, SS, and 1B are all out. I don't know if it matters. There is nothing we can point to and say he's an excellent manager when it comes to X. He's not even average yet.

 

I'd let Lilliquist go. Been saying that for weeks now. That would send a message that everyone is being held responsible. If things don't improve from there, then Davey would be next.

I don't think there's much Martinez could do to make me hate him as much as Matt Williams. Which is also why he is such a bad coach. He's so mediocre, he's so bland, he's so...Jim Zorn.

The best thing for this team would be to be 10 game back well ahead of the trade deadline so you can make an informed decision about the future of the team with plenty of time to mull it over. I'd rather not watch bad baseball for a decade and raise my kids watching losers play, so I'm a big fan of the blow-it-up strategy right now.

I'm not quite to blow it up territory, i want to see what the roster does with an actual manager of men first.

 

That said, Rizzo has yet to get that part correct

We saw this show for 162 games last year. With a $200m roster, this team should not be this bad. It's time.

 

And--give me Giraridi, give me Showalter. Give me someone that commands a room. Give me Beltran as the bench coach.

Was your "it's time" comment in regarding to blowing it up or new manager?

 

If we're gonna be big time deadline sellers, no point in ditching Davey yet. Let him coach out his contract and find someone new when we are ready to compete again.

Rizzo tried to hire Bud Black. Later, he tried to bring Dusty back. There are only so many proven MLB managers your GM can try to hire... the manager situation is absolutely NOT on him.

Yeah I'm with you. Normally I'm okay with giving young up and comers a chance but the last two times we've gone that route, its backfired. Meanwhile proven leaders of men like Baker and Johnson get results.

A legit manager like Girardi or Showalter is what we've needed since we let Dusty go. If we had them in charge last season, we actually would have challenged the Braves for the division

I hope we tank the next month, get Davey fired and then go on an improbable run.
