      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.

      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.

  1. 1. What's wrong with John Hall on kick-offs?

    • He doesn't have the leg after his injury - sign a kickoff specialist
      29
    • He needs to take a longer approach before kicking.
      11
    • Don't be so hard on him, he's fine.

If we're going to trade Lavar for Palmer, Cincy has to throw in some picks. Oh and of course Palmer would have to redo his contract to the vet minimum with incentives.

I have a good idea, we could make his incentives based on tackles and passes defensed.

A-Carson Palmer just got a huge extension

B-Brunell isn't washed up(22 TD's 9 INT's)

C-LaVar is in his prime. He's only 27.

Hey that's pretty good with the letters there. How far can you go?

Dude, no offense, but if I was talking about Madden, I would have proposed a trade for Vick. He's a way better fit for my improvisational style of play.

Yea but Vick's vision cone is way too small for me to work with. All you'd be able to do is run with him like a RB, and throw it deep every other play. Me, I'd propose a trade for Daunte Culpepper. Speed and Accuracy. :D

why are ya'll all so intent on trading Lavar, he is better here, he never said he was going to be gone and is still a good fit for the team, and anyway, there is more important stuff to worry about, the game Sunday, so pray for that and worry about the off season after the post season.

It would make perfect sense. Brunell is washed up. Ramsey is a solid back-up. And Campbell needs a few more years to develop. Let's trade Lavar for Carson Palmer. Palmer is younger than Peyton Manning and is a better passer than Vick. He's the only player I can think of who is even in a class with LaVar, so it would be a perfect trade for both teams!!!

No way Lewis even wants Lavar Plus they just signed palmer for a pretty hefty extension but decent so the bengals are set as an orginization for awhile.

Regardless of salaries etc... etc... there is absolutely no way and I mean no way that ANY GM in the NFL would trade Carson Palmer for just about any other player in the NFL.

I dont know if you are kidding but the mere thought of suggesting that Cincy would accept Lavar in return for Palmer is beyond crazy.

If you asked me who the most valuable players were in the NFL and factored in age skills, ability, etc.. I would list the following:

T1. Tom Brady/ Peyton Manning

3. Carson Palmer

4. Ben Roethlisberger
