Redskins Lead 7-3 after One Quarter

Well, Brooks giveth and taketh away. He got a lucky roll on the first punt, which led directly to the Skins' TD. Then he shanked one, which set up the Rams' field goal.

Neither team seems that fired up to me. Kind of a weird game.

And the Skins need to respond well to the first offensive turnover of the season.

They go 345 offensive plays to start the season without one, then Cooley fumbles to kill a drive.

Could be interesting game from here on out.

Skins announced they were first team in NFL history to go first five games without an offensive turnover.

Following the game online, anyone see whether our defense is getting any pressure on Bulger?

cindy, what's wrong with portis?????

Posted by: dealer1 | October 12, 2008 1:56 PM | Report abuse

Ladell seems to be getting a lot of action -- something wrong with Clinton, or just sharing the load (which is smart)?

Can you say jinxed?!?!

This is just ugly. They're literally giving this game away. What team showed up today?

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 2:02 PM | Report abuse

Horrors! Two turnovers already! We are GIVING this game to the Rams!

I had a really bad feeling about this game....looks like I was right :(

Posted by: Lisa_R | October 12, 2008 2:02 PM | Report abuse

Im not liking the smell of this

Posted by: mofass79 | October 12, 2008 2:02 PM | Report abuse

Nothing wrong w/ Portis... but can you say TRAP GAME!

We better keep our heads on straight.

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:02 PM | Report abuse

At least they're getting all of these turnovers out of their system now.

Posted by: JinxMan | October 12, 2008 2:03 PM | Report abuse

It's still early, it's still early. Just gotta stay focused.

Im more worried with this game LEADING than I was last week down by 14.

Do I not like this..."Hit Les! Carlton! CARLTON!!...Can you tell your friend he's lost me my job?"

Posted by: mikeysuperdons | October 12, 2008 2:04 PM | Report abuse

The is the day I've been waiting for(i.e. mutiple TO's against inferior team). I think we the skins will handle this adversity.

Posted by: TWISI | October 12, 2008 2:04 PM | Report abuse

On any given Sunday...

I don't like the tone of this game but it's still very early. The one positive is that it's not anything the Rams are doing.

Posted by: learnedhand1 | October 12, 2008 2:05 PM | Report abuse

How ugly was JC's fumble? I'm stuck with watching the Bears & Falcons here in Louisville.

Posted by: JinxMan | October 12, 2008 2:06 PM | Report abuse

Well they didn't get point off the turnover. WAS needs to get control of this game back--and fast.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 2:06 PM | Report abuse

Defense rises to the occasion!

Posted by: mofass79 | October 12, 2008 2:06 PM | Report abuse

jinx, it was low snap. It was allon casey rabach...jc Shouldve just fallen on it but ehhh

Posted by: dealer1 | October 12, 2008 2:08 PM | Report abuse

Jinx - Redskin Radio is on. better than a game we don't give an sjk about.

I'm PO'd 'cause my local bar decided to let two games that are already on Local TV be on the Big Screens. I spend alot of $$ there and don't like gettin' dissed.

I'll be going elsewhere for a while!

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:08 PM | Report abuse

they should really put rookie wrs in

Zorn should be fired after this game, and let's bring in Colt Brennan.

God Cooley not having a good game.

Hahahahaha... good one, isnadd.

Cooley needs to sit down for a while. Fumbles, penalties - he isn't in the game right now.

Posted by: stevebeagrie | October 12, 2008 2:14 PM | Report abuse

They are giving this one away.

Knee not ankle

Posted by: dealer1 | October 12, 2008 2:16 PM | Report abuse

The defense has to step up here. That being said, however, this is a key test now for WAS. If they can hold STL off, then they will eventually overtake them. But they need to stop them on this drive that is just starting.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 2:16 PM | Report abuse

Ok, I know everyone - including me, has been down on Brooks - but what's wrong w/ pinning the Rams inside their twenty??!!

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:18 PM | Report abuse

They stopped them again. So WAS should have plenty of time to move the ball downfield--or at least end the Half.

Hey - how 'bout this for a nickname for Fletcher-Baker.. "sweet love" he he he.

Defense holding it together, we getting any pressure on Bulger?

Posted by: mofass79 | October 12, 2008 2:19 PM | Report abuse

2:00 warning.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 2:20 PM | Report abuse

NFL.com charged the fumble to Rabach, not Campbell

Posted by: JinxMan | October 12, 2008 2:21 PM | Report abuse

absolutely, MofSJK.

Just forced another punt. Bolger 'short-armed' it according to Sonny. Definitely a pressure reaction

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:21 PM | Report abuse

Dik, his punts have looked terrible. He's been lucky today because the ball has rolled forward an additional 20 yards.

Posted by: learnedhand1 | October 12, 2008 2:23 PM | Report abuse

I can't see the game, but if Betts is in there as part of some silly platoon thing, get him out and get Portis going.

This score is just silly.

PS - Horrible regional games today. I'm getting Falcons/Bears yawnfest.

Posted by: messykat | October 12, 2008 2:23 PM | Report abuse

Can Jansen play LG at all? Samuels may be out for a WHILE... eeegh.

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:24 PM | Report abuse

ahhh - Fabini.. that'll do, I guess.

Posted by: DikShuttle | October 12, 2008 2:25 PM | Report abuse

Everyone went mad after the Gints game about how terrible the 'Skins were and we've all enjoyed the big wins since. Maybe we're not good enough to perform at a high level every week?

I think we'll win today (if only because the Rams are so bad) nut, over 5 games the points differential is only +11. I think there may be a couple of games like this coming up where Washington will struggle to put the opposition away.

Anyway, we've got a drive going. My reverse jinx is on!

Posted by: stevebeagrie | October 12, 2008 2:25 PM | Report abuse

And with that catch, Cooley is redeemed.

Posted by: learnedhand1 | October 12, 2008 2:26 PM | Report abuse

A little redemption for COOLEY!

Zorn is going to get in that @$$ at halftime. I wouldn't believe that the Skins would go into the half down 3.

I really am at a loss for words here. The last turnover was admittedly a freak accident but this is just getting ugly here. I'm really at a loss for words.

Posted by: jiacinto | October 12, 2008 2:31 PM | Report abuse

Can WAS take a step back and take control of the game back in the 2nd half?
