      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.

Daniel Jones era begins

Recommended Posts

Poor Eli... Now his younger twin will take over.

 

Need to find some drunk Daniel Jones pics now.  

 

Skins will have a game against the Bucs to game plan with.  Hopefully they can get to the Rook.

I dont think you have ever watched a Skins game in your life lol

 

Seriously though... good. I want to see Jones live up to the (more recent) hype. I was hoping Our rook would get to play him too but its not looking like it gonna happen this season.

Wonder if there is any chance the Skins follow suit if they lose to the Bears.  Im thinking probably not since it doesn't appear that the passing game is anywhere near the top of the problem list.

 

As bad as Manusky is I am hopeful that he can find a way confuse and get pressure on him.  It will be the Giants first game at home with Jones.  Ill be there and it would be fun to watch our front 7 light him up.  I suppose its probably to much to hope for.  Allen should be back by then though so will see.

Anyone looked at the Redskins' stats vs rookie QB's over the past 20 years.  I'll give you a hint: there is now a large probability that the Giants sweep us this year.

The Giants made a good decision. They play Tampa this week and the 'Skins next week.  Tampa has a good defense, but the stats after 2 weeks are somewhat skewed because they played the Panthers who can't move the ball.  They were torched by SF in week 1, though.

 

In the next 2 opponents, the Giants play an average TB team with an "ok" defense and then the 'Skins.

 

Not a bad set of opponents to start a career with.  

 

As a side note, assuming Manusky is still here, if he doesn't heat up Jones with blitzes from absolutely everywhere, I will be pissed.  If he thinks that they can't just sit back and wait for Jones to make mistakes, he's going to pick us apart.  

 

Greg needs to go look up some of the old Gregg Williams game plans from 2004 and start plagiarizing them. Sure, they're 15 years old, but they are more innovative than anything Manusky can come up with on his own.

I don't think Manusky has a large enough salary to pay bounty bonuses.

Just out of curiousity...when was the last time we played a rookie QB?

2017 - CJ Beathard against the 49ers. Win

2016 - Wentz twice, both wins 

2016 - Dak twice, both losses

2016 - Kessler (Cleveland) Win

2015 - Winston - won.  Code Red Game if I’m not mistaken.  

 

So minus the 2 Dak losses in 2015, Jay has had a pretty good record against rookie QBs since 2015.

So 5-2 record. Interesting. Guess that should end the “redskins suck against rookie QBs” narrative.

So if we get swept by the Giants, that must mean we beat the Patriots

I don’t see how those two things are related.  

 

Also, us beating the Patriots is about as likely as me walking down the street, bumping into Natalie Dormer and her inviting me back to her hotel room for festivities.  It COULD happen.  But it’s highly unlikely.

If you go back further it’s pretty atrocious.  

 

But of all the Jay Gruden alarming statistics, he’s been pretty good against rookie QBs.  Except Dak.

I think he’s referring to the 2011 season when we swept the giants and lost to the patriots. The joke being if we get swept by the giants this season, then we’d beat the patriots. But then again, in 2015 we split with the giants and lost to the patriots anyway, so 😂

So you're telling me there's a chance...

It's based on history, as opposed to logic.

Because the Skins typically play the opposite of what's expected : lose the games we should absolutely win, and win the games we absolutely should lose.

Perfect example, is our unusually long trend of beating the team that won the Super Bowl, later that same year.

Matter of fact, I believe one of those instances actually included a win against the Patriots who went on to win the Super Bowl.

I believe it happened under Spurrier.

I could be mistaken about some minor facts, but the trend I'm talking about was very real and most Skins fans know about it.

We suck so bad we don't even beat the SB team anymore. Hell, we even lost the game that was supposed to be deciding the next president.

technically we didn’t WIN either (in 2016 at least...). We had a bye week the Sunday before Election Day, so our game was the week before, in London, which as you may remember, was a tie :P 

 

2012, however, was a loss to the panthers i believe

Hard not to root for a guy who was laughed at before he played a down and handled it all with grace.
