I agree...Skins played heck of a game with all the injuries they had. Now..when Boys blocked that FG...which was needed for momentum....Skins kinda did like Boys did in Rams game when Switzer muffed punt...some teams have a hard time responding to costly horrible mistakes. Chargers did that yesterday against Pats (Travis Benjamin bobbled punt and ran backwards and got tackled for Pats safety) and didn't fully recover since. But Skins did what they could've did....and with Cousins u cant solely blame him on loss...hes a good QB...but his play wasn't enough to win game either.

This is a very beat up Redskins squad, and the schedule will continue to be tough for the next several weeks.

the skins schedule gets s little easier from here though, where as the cowboys schedule gets harder.

the problem for the skins is the number of injuries they have suffered through so far. got to give guys like norman credit though, playing tough through recent injury isnt easy.

i think this being a rivalry game though gave both teams impetus to perform though. the weather was definitely a factor in the passing game.

hopefully though both teams will shake off the sloppiness of this game going forward, and the next game they play against each other will be a serious shoot out.

Welp, looks like Zeke will miss 6 games for the Cowboys. Tough blow for them. Next 6 games are Chiefs, @Falcons, Eagles, Chargers, Redskins, @Giants.

If someone commits a crime there should be League dispensed punishment. There is no evidence of a crime just hearsay. Has and will cost Elliott over a million bucks outright not mention other monies ... again on hearsay. The League investigator that actually investigated the woman and her story recommended no punishment and was then barred from the kangaroo court ... err ... hearing by Goodell.

Dallas Cowboys: Suspension will cost Elliott big money | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Does this seem American to you, not to mention even fair ... no witnesses, no hospital visits, no video ... nothing concrete. The NFL should at least adhere to American standards of guilt if they're gonna be that punitive.

It was immeasurably easy to call this. The Fix was always in, this is about injuring the Cows' chances for the season! Costing Elliott millions is just a sidelight of this whole ordeal!.

It'll cost Goodell though ... his extension is not in and Jones has a confederation against him!

Today is the trade deadline. We'll see if anything happens in the NFC East.

Nothing will happen in the Redskins camp. They need all the players they can get. The season is lost now, unfortunately, with all the injuries this team has sustained. In my 35+ years of watching Redskins football, I don't think I have ever seen this team so banged up and injured. Maybe as far back as 1992, when the 'skins started losing all of their offensive line to injury. I don't even think Darrell Green played half that season that year.

I'm keeping myself in shape just in case, lol! They might need me to come in and run 1 yard routes, lol!

The Eagles have acquired RB Jay Ajayi for a 4th round pick. They improved one of their weaknesses.


Last night, Ezekiel Elliot WAS suspended for 6 games.

If you guys make it to the Super Bowl, I'll have no choice but to pull for the Eagles (puke, can't believe I just said that) if you play the Patriots.

Jay Ajayi to the Eagles! Boom! He's a pretty good back.

With Ajayi, Blount, Clement, Smallwood and Barner on the roster, somebody is getting traded or cut. No need for 5 backs.

I could see Philly still trying to get an O-lineman now that Peters is out.
