      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.

Would you want HBO Hard Knocks to feature us this year?

Recommended Posts

Finlay who has been the one optimist who thought they'd get Hard Knocks now doesn't think its happening citing the Redskins don't want it.  Jon references Jay here on Hard Knocks.

Agree.  I was just reading Athlon's NFL magazine about the upcoming season. It talked about this team having a steep decline in being any type of national draw-interest.  I've heard other national shows goof on the idea about the Redskins-Cowboys being a top NFL rivalry by saying more or less how are the Redskins relevant rivals with anyone since no one gives a crap about them nationally.  And the real rivals now in the NFC East are whenever the other 3 teams in the East play each other.

 

I never thought I'd care about something like that but for some reason it irks me some. Maybe that's because I live in South Florida which basically is a mix of fans from all over the country.  I wear my Redskins gear plenty but its rare for me to find someone else doing the same.  And I see people wear jerseys-shirts of some other teams like crazy.  

 

I get the idea of just win baby and become a relevant franchise again over time -- I just got my doubts its happening.  I admit this is one thing I didn't think would happen under Dan which is becoming irrelevant.  For his faults, Dan seem to be good at getting attention albeit not always the right kind.  But yeah I never thought this organization would be mentioned among the Titans as one of those type of teams that no one cares to watch unless you are a fan of the team.  Not that Hard Knocks would fix all of that.  But it would at least bring them back in conversation some.   Though them drafting Haskins had added some intrigue I notice nationally.

Yeah. Honestly if it wasn’t going to be the redskins, the raiders were my next choice

It'll be us next year.

 

 

For it to be us, we'd have to have a non playoff season and Jay is retained.  It doesn't look like even Jay thinks those two things can go hand in hand.  But you never know.

Well, non playoffs is pretty much a given.  I mean, the East could be weak this year, but who knows.  As it stands, it looks like Philly and Dallas fighting it out with us and the Giants trying to stay out of last.  But who knows.

 

IIRC, we'd be like one of the longest running eligible teams NOT to have appeared on it.  We can't keep dodging that bullet for much longer no matter who the coach is.

Disappointing.   Originally hoped it wouldn’t be the skins but over time came to really want to see the skins on hard knocks

The fan base needs anything to get excited about, a behind the scenes look would have been really cool and sparked some interest. No idea why people are against it. I was at the final game last year at FedEx against the eagles and that was just terrible, I was honestly embarrassed. We need something

I don’t want to sound like a homer.  But I don’t think it’s a given that we won’t make the playoffs.  Maybe we get lucky as a wild card.

What does it matter at this point?  We have been the laughing stock and one of the worst teams in the NFL since Snyder bought the team.   This franchise is no longer respectable and hasn't been for decades. 

 

All of that has been undone over the past 25+ years.  Being on Hard Knocks could do no more harm or embarrassment than the front office, owner, coaching staff and some players have already managed to do.  Plus, with today's social media, leaks, etc. every teams dirty laundry gets put out there.

The redskins are a reality show every friggin year. We don’t need an HBO show for that.

 

but seriously, it seems like an odd choice only because with the Raiders moving I can’t see the fan base being overly enthusiastic about this.
