      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.

      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.

Trade Lavar for Carson Palmer!

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

  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.

This is probably the dumbest thread I've ever viewed. Wilburn, you can't be serious. Please tell me your joking if you think for a second that the Bengals would entertain this.

When I read stuff like this I am embarrased to know that the Redskins have fans like this. Somewhere in your office, building, gym or in your circles your insane suggestions probably create Cowboys fans from nothing just to be opposite of you.

Get real.

I thought Carson palmer just resigned the largest contract extension in the NFL thru 2014?? Didnt I see Marvin Lewis on ESPN this morning? or am I crazy.LOL

He did. I think the thread starter needs to read the thread titled "moron thread."

that would be an AWESOME trade for cincy!

However, if they didn't (for some strange reason!) go for it, I'd settle for trading Lavar for a worn out slinky and a 6 pack of natty light.

oh who am I kidding, I don't actually need a slinky :doh: 6 pack would do. But Lavar could never come back. I'd get that part in writing.

worst. thread. ever.

We probably have the best depth at QB in the league, why trade LaVar for a Quarterback?

P.S. In what way, shape, or form is Brunell washed up? He's really a huge help to this team, retard.

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!!!

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

:applause:

Yea, just do it! That's what I would do. While we're at it we should trade Ramsey for Julius Peppers.

Well heck lets just trade him straight up for Peyton Manning. That would be swell!!

You just made me laugh for like 5 minutes straight.

Seriously though, to the person that made this thread- while were playing Madden lets trade our 1st round pick, Cory Raymer, and Robert Royal for Tomlinson, Brees, and what the hell...Merriman can come too. :cheers:

Its threads like this that are why the washington post took jabs at the site in that article.....

Actually, I was thinking more along the lines...See, this is why the Washington Posts comes up with stupid articles. They come on here and look for idiotic threads and then those really bad spinoff articles show up! :laugh:

Why would we trade a superstar like Lavar for a no-talent jerk like Carson. He plays for the Bengals, the doormats of the league for the past 20 years. We don't need Marvin Lewis' castoffs like he needs ours.

What do you know about the 'skins, you're from New York!

Seriously though, I don't understand why everyone is hating on Carson Palmer so much. The guy is young and he's a potential franchise QB. Lavar is obviously the QB Killa #56 and the best linebacker in football, but something tells me there is tension between him and the organization.

Brunell's not washed up right now, but he will be soon. Brunell can hold down the starting job for a few years while Carson develops. You know Gibbs doesn't like young QBs!

I got an idea. How about we sign Nick Novak in the offseason and then trade him to the Jets for John Abraham. It makes perfect sense. We took John Hall away from the Jets a few years ago. Now they have a chance to take one of our kickers. :laugh:

this is the dumbest thread i've ever seen on here.

I agree, and that is saying a lot. Someone the other day proposed a Clinton Portis for Ladanian Tomlinson trade, and this is even stupider than that.

Brunell washed up... I completely disagree with this statement!

Mark has had a very good season, provided leadership, greatly improved the Offense with 3 down conversions and +40 yard plays etc. etc. etc.

Brunell should have gone to the pro bowl...

Really? Some people, I swear.
facetious

adj

Definition: tongue-in-cheek, kidding

Again, this is something that bears repeating. Reading comprehension is a helluva thing.

Seriously though, I would much rather have the issues between LaVar and the staff worked out over the offseason than letting him go to another team fully healthy with a chip on his shoulder over his treatment (rightfully or wrongfully). However, it's looking like that's not possible and that's incredibly sad. For both sides.

Oh well. Let's just beat up on Philly and get into the playoffs already. Is it Sunday YET??
