Note: --The CoveritLive software isn't working. Actually, there isn't enough bandwidth for it to work here at FedEx. I'm going to have to do this the old-fashioned way and update quarter by quarter or more frequently as events dictate. I'll try to get this worked out for next week but, hey, it's the preseason for all of us.
--You'll still be able to send me your questions via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
--Opening kickoff by Suisham very high and to the very back of the end zone.
--Alfred Fincher got in there good with a tackle behind the line for a loss of two. He has to convince the Redskins that he's worthy of keeping rather than searching the waiver wire.
--The defensive line got a good rush on Garard on third and six and forced a deep throw to flutter some.
--As expected, the Jags have in a mix of starters are reserves. The Redskins will be semi-tested.
--Campbell's first pass is picked off. It bounced off of the hands of Devin Thomas, was deflected again, and wound up in the hands of a linebacker. It was his first pick of the preseason, but that's not the start they wanted.
--Fincher again with a stop at the line. He's extremely active and aggressive.
--It's Fincher again, knocking away a third-down pass. Unfortunately, it doesn't count as Richardson came up to press and went offside in the process.
Williams 3 pass from Garrard (Scobee kick)
Jaguars 7, Redskins 0 7:33 first quarter
--Williams came all the way from right to left, leaving Justin Tryon in futile pursuit. That doesn't mean that it was Tryon's man, someone else could have blown the coverage. David Garrard won't have an easier TD pass.
--Marcus Mason remains in at running back, not that anything different was expected after Portis didn't come out for that first, one-play series.
--Either it's a late-arriving crowd or it's a non-arriving crowd. It's well under half of capacity in the stands.
--Campbell went to his security blanket, Chris Cooley, on third and three and nailed him in a soft spot in the zone. But Cooley couldn't hold on, or so the referee said. Zorn has challenged the call of incomplete. I think it will be upheld, but I didn't get a good enough look at it before they cut to commercial to be sure.
--Call upheld. Cooley has got to hold on to that ball.
--Fred Davis with a nice hit on punt coverage to force a fumble. It went out of bounds, though, and the Jags retained possession.
--Excellent ball hawking skills just displayed by Reed Doughty. He came out of nowhere on a deep pass to Matt Jones, who was tussling with Tryon. Doughty flew in, jumped, and made the pick just before going out of bounds. A great job of playing center field by Doughty.
--Another open receiver, this time Campbell is at fault as he threw too low for Thrash.
--Three series with a result of a turnover and a pair of three and outs. Ugh.
--Brooks with a 42-yard punt, very short return.
--Cleo Lemon now is in at quarterback for the Jags, and Chauncey Washington is at running back.
--So far, the Jags are having very limited success running but they are converting third and long situations with great regularity. With Tryon and Matteral Richardson in a corner, that's not too surprising.
