      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.

This is our turning point.

 

On the 2nd drive of the game Mack abuses Moses and ends Keenum's breakout year with a 2-4 week sprain.

 

Haskins comes in and throws for 448 yrds and 5 tds.

 

TMc - 2 TD

Harmon - 1

Quinn - 1

Sprinkle - 1

 

Even CT gets caught up in the moment and scampers for a 65 yd score.

 

The D clamps down in the 2nd half and gets 4 sacks, (Sweat gets 2) Collins gets 1 on a stunt and Settle pancakes Trubiski early in the 4th to bring out  Chase Daniel to wrap it up and Jimmy the Peoples Corner promptly intercepts him.

 

49 - 17 Skins in a blowout.

 

 

 

 

Man I wish I could live in this fantasy world.

Not dark thoughts 

 

Facts that maybe if he's not a 100% he shouldn't play and risk it. Others have and others get hurt worse. It's not rocket science

I might even want to hold Allen out this game.  I don’t trust our medical staff.  And we need him to be 100%.  Our defense hasn’t been playing all that great when he is 100% anyway.

I get your point, but 100% for what if we lose this game?

Me, too.  Agree.  Craig Hoffman seems close with him and if you follow the narrative he got from Reed it comes off sad.  Reed's toes slowed him down last year.  He felt great in camp and was killing it.  He wanted to prove to the world that he was still a great TE and it was his feet that slowed him down last year.  Then this happened.

It just wouldn't be normal if the Skins won on MNF.  Probably going to be more of the same 28-24 Bears with a garbage TD to make it close as has been the trend this season

Was listening to Sheehan today on local radio. He was talking to someone who covers the Bears. According to the enemy, the Bears view the Redskins as the team they can and will "get right" on, especially Trubisky. He referenced a game last year against the Bucs when Trubisky started strong and their coach decided to pile on the Bucs' dreadful defense and secondary to help give Trubisky confidence moving into the season. Apparently he threw 6 TDs that day. That's what they're expecting to do tonight. He said the Redskins defense is viewed as poor and "there's no one special or that you have to game plan for" on offense, other than possibly McLaurin. 

 

Hard to argue with much of what he said, and this is from a guy who used to walk the Redskin beat for years before moving to Chi-town. 

 

If he's right, things could get ugly. Er.

Who doesn't see the Skins as a "get right" game now except for maybe the Jets and Dolphins.  Instead they think, "hey we got a shot at this game".

I've actually been calling them the "Florence Nightengales of Football" for several years now. Teams come to them for help, and they usually deliver.

The Skins will not be able to nor should they really try to run the ball as it will not be successful.  They’ve got to hope for some quick passes and YAC to have a chance on offense.  Turnovers will totally swing the game and it feels ripe for Keenum to have a dud.

 

On defense, they’ve got to hope Trubisky is Trubisky.  Jon Allen should also help.

 

Bears    24

Skins.    12
