      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.

I think we can pencil in Cobb for a couple DL stints every year.

Damn, some terrible decisions by the coaching staff. Hyde has time to learn but he has a ways to go.

Castro only has one appearance without giving up a run this year and it was the first one.  Remember when they thought he might be a starter?

I think they can do it.  They came back big after getting the **** beaten out of them by the Yankees.  Rough game last night but this team so far doesn't have any quit.  There's some good energy here compared to last years team that was already sleepwalking through the season at this point.

Exactly why I am not at all filled with the hopelessness last year brought.. even if this squad ends up fighting to stay out of the ALE cellar.

they're yooung, SPEEDY, and I like that.
As usual, need to get the pitching sorted out.

I do like that Gary Thorne and Jim Palmer keep telling everyone it is an evaluation year, and the BEGINNING of the rebuild, and it will take time.
(And usually, i can't stand listening to Palmer )

What?  Can't stand listening to Palmer?  Palmer is so unintentionally hysterical to me, it's great.  He's won 3 Cy Youngs, is not afraid to remind anyone about it and also isn't afraid to remind everyone that he never gave up a grand slam.  His ego is absolutely fantastic.

Well, yeah, i guess when you put it THAT way. 😆

His ego is MASSIVE.. his delivery is just tedious is why. I like Bordick better.

 

it is funny looking when they show him.. so much botox in that forehead...  he is in his 70s and still trying to look like hes 30 years younger. the other day when Eddie Murray was in the booth and thy had the camera on him, I kept watching Jim to see if he could blink.

 

Glad we have Gary Thorne, though. He's fantastic.

Yeah, Palmer is a diva for sure...but he can get away with it cause he was so good. 

 

I love Thorne, golden pipes.

Palmer's great (unless he's getting cantankerous and belabors some obvious point over and over to demonstrate how smart he is.)

And Gary, who is already great, gets the most out of him because he asks questions and sets things up beautifully. 

 

Hunter is the Larry Michael of the Orioles.

I absolutely love Palmer. He was ruthless last night, as he generally is when players or coaches do dumb stuff, when the O's ran tried to run on the A's CF. It was 5-0 I think and they would've had Mancini come up with the bases loaded and no outs. Instead they get the first out at home then, on the next pitch with Mancini up, they attempt a double steal which gets Rickard thrown out at 2nd. Really bad decision making by both the 3rd base coach and the manager.

Since we are taking about Palmer, when I see him on TV, he reminds me of the 60s Batman villain False Face. It’s really sad but that’s what I think of. He looks like plastic now.

Yeah, I love Palmer.  I appreciate Palmer's knowledge and insight.  Don't really care about his ego. When he's says why somebody is or isnt having success, he's usually right.  Or when people do dumb stuff, he says it.

I also love how he occasionally mocks analytics as if some computer or equation was needed to know what pitch (and location) to throw in different situations.

Khris Davis is good, Chris Davis sucks big gigantic rhinoceros balls. 

So at least he is making SOME contact with balls...

Speaking of breaking futility records, how many home runs are the O's pitchers going to give up this year?  We must be on pace for like 400

It still amazes me that pitchers walk Chris Davis. To be fair, the AB in the 7th that just happened, the pitcher nibbled around the plate. But still, you nibble and miss, he could get on base. You throw him strikes, he’s 0 for forever.

Maybe none of them want to be the first one to give up a hit

This team is worse than last season. They may luck into more wins, but they are brutally bad.
