August 20-- Gibbs angry after Skins fall to Jets 27-14

The Jets held the ball for an entire quarter longer then the Skins and dominated special teams play as Washingtonfalls to 0-2 in the pre-season after a 27-14 home loss..

NY had more return yards then the Skins had rush yards including a a TD return off a Skins scoring drive in the first half.. The opening kickoff coverage featured Jeff Posey and Mike Rumph, both signed this week and undrafted rookie Mike Espy, thus the usual starting group was not prevalent.. So the Skins were testing some new faces..

The defense gave up 216 yard rushing as NY held the ball for 37 plus minutes in the battle of time of posession.. The Jets had a 23 play drive that nearly ate up the entire third quarter..

Washington has still yet to have a lead in the two pre-season games and have lost by a combirned 29 points to two teams who did not play their starting quarterbacks at all..

Chad Pennington was out for the game due to personal reasons, Patrick Ramsey started and received a smattering of applause but no boos.. He was sacked by Adam Archulletta on the Jets first drive forcing a punt..
Brooks Bollinger was very successful against the Skins defense showing off his mobility..

The Jets scored their first TD on a reverse to former Missouri QB Brad Smith.. Mike Rumph was backing up on the play when it came to his side, by the time he figured it out, he was roadkill.. Gregg Williams gave him an earful after the play.. Renaldo Wynn took some of the blame fo the reverse saying he needs to make that play..

Joe Gibbs had a short terse press conference saying he is obviously not coaching well and the players need to take this serious as there is a high level of concern for the overall team play..

Injuries: DT Cornelious Griffin suffered a mild sprain of the MCL in his right knee, he'll be re-evaluated today, no MRI is scheduled, this doesn't appear serious but may keep him out of practice this week..
TE Robert Johnson suffered a sprained left ankle, X-rays were negative..
LB Khary Campbell suffered a bruised left knee but kept playing..

Jason Campbell said he hasn't much time with the starters in practice thus it was a little uncomfortable for him to be with them when he intiially came into the game.. He was very angry at himself for his INT saying he tried to force a play downfield after the Jets came on an all out blitz.. He was pleased how his teammates rallied around him afterward though and he said the team was playing at a different speed for him following the turnover..

WR Brandon Lloyd was held out of the game as a precaution due to a sore hamstring..
