Happy Birthday Skins Fans!! Redskins 13 Jets 10

Colt Brennen again showed why he will make the 53 man roster for the Washington Redskins. With 1:09 remaining in the fourth quarter Brennan who celebrated his 25th birthday, threw 33 yards to Jason Goode for the go ahead TD to put the Redskins up 13-10 for good.

The Jets did have there opportunities but failed to convert. All the hoopla was on the start of the NY Jets and the Brett Farve era. Farve on his first play hit Jerrico Cotchery on a quick slant for an eleven yard gain. On the same possession he passed a 10 yarder to TE Chris Baker. He was 3 for 3 on the first drive. Overall he was 5 for 6 for 56 yards and a TD (rookie TE Dustin Keller for 4 yards). Jason Campbell was nothing to brag about he completed 4-of-10 passes for 28 yards in a quarter of action.

On the other hand, the Redskins’ ground game was impressive. Running backs combined for 181 yards and averaged 8.2 yards per carry in the game. Brett Ratliff led the Jets Offense to the Washington 5 yard line with 9 seconds left in the game. Second and goal with 9 seconds left Ratliff hits all alone Paul (I will be unemployed next week) Raymond but Raymond inexplicably dropped the ball. Third and goal at the five with 5 seconds to go Ratliff (who was on a roll) looks at the sideline for the call and the Jets take a timeout.

The Jets brain trust decided to go for Over Time and kick a 23 yard extra point like field goal. Well the insane decision worked just like the brilliant person who decided to do that, the kick hit the uprights and bounced back into the field of play. No good! Skins win 13-10. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
Injuries?

Ladell Betts RB Washington had the game stopped and left with a leg (Knee?) issue. David Clowny WR Jets left the game after he was tossed to the ground hard with all the pressure hitting his shoulder.
Eric Mangini left the game with a migraine because he had no one to blame for loss but himself. Ratliff and the Offense were on a roll and just missed the play before.

Why go for a FG and go into overtime to be more susceptible to injuries during a meaningless pre season game??? Ahhh Hello…??? You are at home, Farve first game, a QB who is battling for the second spot behind Farve and led you down the field in a minute GO FOR THE WIN ERIC!!!!!!!

For a person (Mangini) to speak to the press with pop warner type terms that was a pop warner first time coach embarrassment.
