      ES Coverage: Giants vs Redskins 
       
      12/9/18
       
      DEFEAT!!!
       
      Giants 40 - Redskins 16
       
      Greetings friends, JimmiJo here, and I am joined by my shivering partner, Spaceman Spiff. Together we will bring you this all important NFC East divisional matchup between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.
       
      When I was last with you the Redskins had command of the division and there was optimism to spare. Since, devastating injuries to quarterbacks, linemen, and cornerbacks has left this team losers in 4-of-5 contests.
       
      But there is still everything to play for, and if they can manage a victory today and the Eagles to the same Washington will once again have a share of the lead.
       
      I can dream can't I?
       
      On paper, the future looks grim. A continued collapse will start the questions about the future of personnel and perhaps leadership. Yes, we can certainly point to injuries as the primary reason the team is struggling. But the record earlier in the year was masking some issues with the squad. No real arial threat. An inconsistent running game. And a defense that has been anything but consistent.
       
      But these are questions for another time. Today, it is just two teams looking for a win.
       
      See you at the half.

      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 12 QB Colt McCoy
      o   No. 32 RB Samaje Perine
      o   No. 46 RB Kapri Bibbs
      o   No. 52 LB Ryan Anderson
      o   No. 63 C Demetrius Rhaney
      o   No. 66 G Tony Bergstrom
      o   No. 99 DL Caleb Brantley

      I was happy to see players like Josh Johnson and Byron Marshall in the game. The marquee guys did not earn the right to play following the disastrous first half. It was historically bad.
       
      Never before had the Washington Redskins trailed by as much as the 34-0 deficit they entertained today at the half.
       
      I remarked to one of the writers that in 13-seasons I had never seen this team so outplayed as today. The offense led by Mark Sanchez was throw-up in mouth bad. At no point did you feel like they would or could score.
       
      I tweeted before the game that it is time for Daniel Snyder to replaced head coach Jay Gruden. Yes injuries are the headline. But the offense was poor before the injuries.
       
      No aerial threat and an inconsistent rushing. They only seemed to score 20-points per game.
       
      What they did do well was hold on to the ball. And the defense was a takeover machine the first half of the year.
      But turnovers tend to even out.
       
      So I was more than glad to see those ‘backups’ play. All they did was show they should have been playing in the first half.
       
      Especially Johnson. Take a look at your Redskins’ starter the rest of the way. From his first snap the offense looked different. There was energy. There was life.
       
      And there was threat.
       
      Johnson played with more command, accuracy and imagination than Mark Sanchez. He looked much more the accomplished quarterback.
       
      A word on Josh Doctson. You are an idiot. Without the stupid penalty you are not letting the safety out-position you to make the pick with 5-minutes left.
       
      Following this game, staring at the standings and considering possible scenarios for getting in the playoffs is fools’ gold. It is all about assessing who it worth keeping for next year.
       
      I don’t believe head coach Jay Gruden is going to make the list. Nor should he. He has had nore than enough time to do something here. He had Kirk Cousins’ starting over 3-full seasons.
       
      He had his chance.
       
      I tweeted before the game team owner Daniel Snyder should let Gruden go and bring in Mike McCarthy. Washington Post writer (and friend) Rick Snider made a great counterpoint to that idea:
       
      “Why would McCarthy want to come here? He has better options,” he said.
       
      That sure feels like the truth. And if so, it may explain why Gruden is fast becoming one of the most tenured coaches in the league.
       
      This was my last game for this season. I would like to thank Extremeskins and the team for the opportunity this year. I will see you guys next year.
       
      Let me go on the record now and say I do not think Jay Gruden's position here is secure. Not with the likes of Mike McCarthy available.

Going to the Eagles Game

Recommended Posts

I really like the idea of meeting at the Maryland House that someone suggested earlier. (I sorta forgot who). Is anyone else interested in meeting there and following each other to the game? That way we could arrive at the stadium in a bunch a scare the Eagles fans.

Please discuss.

This is the thread from the game last year. I am trying to organize a presence at the Eagles vs. Redskins game at the Linc this Sunday. There are a lot of tickets available on EBay and Stubhub (pretty reasonable too). Anyone interested?

It was suggested that we meet there around 10:30am and leave out around 11. I will be going and have room for three more.

Hail to the REDSKINS!

Some mod took that Caravan to Philly thread and merged it into another thread and then stuck it in the tailgate section that nobody reads. Good thinking!

http://www.extremeskins.com/forums/showthread.php?t=133765&page=9&pp=15&highlight=caravan+philly

We're not going to rally everybody together unless everybody sees the thread! Sheesh. Sometimes you have to wonder if an Eagles fan has infiltrated the ranks of the mods.... ?

I suggest we use this thread until they move it, then we restart another one here until they move it, etc., until game time.

The plan is, everybody who can meet at Maryland House do so and try to get there around 10:30 Sunday. It's at mile marker 81.0, which is 16 miles north of the Baltimore beltway on I-95. It's a left hand exit. We'll leave at 11 and caravan to the Linc together with Redskins car flags flying.

Those who are late or are coming from another direction, try to meet us at (EDIT) one of the Wachovia Lots, which can be accessed via Broad street. You can get maps and directions here:

http://www.lincolnfinancialfield.com/home.jsp

Edit: At first we planned on Lot U, but I've learned there is no tailgating allowed at Lot U. I called the Philadelphia Eagles and they recommend we park at one of the Wachovia lots. The Philadelphia Eagles told me to take I-95 N and you'll see the stadium on the right, then take the Broad St exit, then get on Broad st, and turn right onto Pattison St, and from there the Wachovia lots are accessible. They are marked Lots A through Lots H. PM me and I'll give you my cell and you can call me for our Lot location after we arrive and park at around noon Sunday, but we are planning on Lot D. I'll have a 20 foot flag pole flying the American flag, and a Redskins flag just below it. It will be visible from quite a distance.

Halter91 will have a turkey fryer to cook wings in, so you might want to bring some wings, and some hot sauce and butter to drizzle on them. Otherwise, if you can, bring hamburgers, dogs, brats, buns, chili, dips, chips, cheese, crackers, whatever, and of course, beverages, if you can. If you can't bring food, show up anyway! I'm sure there will be plenty of food to go around. A number of people will have grills. The main thing is SHOW UP! All Redskins fans are welcome, whether you have food or not!

Weather forecast for Philly Sunday: Partly Cloudy, High 47

Please bump this thread.

THANKS!

I will try to be there by 10:30. I may not make it until around 11 or 11:30 though. From the looks of the directions we just take 95 N. to Broad St. and then turn down Phillies Dr or Rd to get to Lot U. If I'm not there before everyone leaves, will meet you at Lot U.

Go Skins!!! :helmet:

Still plenty of time left to get tickets on Ebay if you can get the tickets overnighted to you!

By the way, I have a 20 foot flag pole that I'll be using to fly the American flag, and a Redskins flag just underneath it. So look for that and you'll find us easily.

Gosh, I don't think the Eagles fans would mind seeing a Redskins flag flying from the highest pole in the lot too much, you know?

Mr. S......Do not be discouraged by the evil Philly fans. Come join us, it sounds like there will be plenty of us there.

I will be at the game Sunday. I wouldn't worry too much about the Eagles fans at least during the tailgate as it is New Year's and many will be at the murmur's parade in center city Philly.

I expect to see a lot of no-shows. Many of my friends who are Beagles fans are not going to the game or sold them already, so you'll get a bunch of fans who never go to the games.

Hey....Is there an update about that Giants fan of a boss of yours....

Actually he has been on vacation since the game. But lets just say he has about 10 pictures from the game on his door. (Right over the cover page from the New York Post). Including pictures of Manning getting sacked, Tiki getting stopped and the score board at the end of the game. I cannot wait until he returns on Tuesday to see it. Let's just hope that I still have my job. :doh:

I think he will. We were talking smack all week before the game. But if we should win and they loose, I wonder how he would feel if we take the NFC East. That would be interesting to see. :silly:

The reason we chose an earlier time is to avoid the chance of being broken up by arriving late. If we are there in a group when the lot opens, we should be able to all park together and party together and further plan the stategic assault on the stadium. Please try hard to arrive with us at 10:30. Otherwise, see you there. Thanks!

Count 4 more of us in for meeting at the Maryland House.. Will be there by 10:45 at the latest as we have to stop off at my Dad's work on the way and pick up the skins car flag that he accidentally left there.
