      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.

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!!!

OH MY GOD!

I can't even express how ****ing dumb that comment sounded.

...you just make more work for the moderators...

:doh:

The cap hit we would take is amazing...

:doh:

Barry ... they keep on coming ... this definitely is the longest running ... most entertaining thread ever. What's everybody gonna do when the deal goes down. Oh by the way, what are we to do about Carson's number. Has Sonny already given his consent.

wow dude check your facts and football knowledge. here are my points:

1) carson was not only signed until 2014 by the bengals, he also has the richest contract in NFL history, which would chatter our cap even with $13 million in cusion (which is NOT the case)

2) lavar is going to stay a redskin, no doubt in my mind, plus he is a better value to our team than palmer would be

3)campbell is ready to go in 2006, and with your trade plan he would not play until 2015 becuase of carsons contract, which he would never renegotiate after becomeing the richest player in NFL history

it would not be a perfect trade for all these reasons, but the biggest one is commin up in number 4!

4) BOTH teams need to agree with the trade and there isn't a snowballs chance in hell that the bengals would ever agree to it

Its great for the Skins, but I fail to see why the Bengals would do it.

Carson was one of the Top 5 QBs last year. Why trade him for a LB?

Carson Palmers career is over. That hit to the knee in the playoff's will haunt him forever. The Bengals just lost a LOT of money on that investment.

The fact that some(i.e. most) posters believe this is a genuine thread speaks volumes to the quality of posts started recently.

i dunno, i know its too fun to not laugh with/at, and full credit to barry for the good gag, but the truth is we read enough "for real" whacked and stupid stuff on here that it's pretty excusable to get taken in by what just looks like another one a little extra-stupid...especially if you're newer, or never registered barry's posts in your memory...

i know we all love that smarter-than-thou feeling of "gettin it" but outside of being fun, its hardly some revealing indicator of crap that ain't alreay well-established and that we're all guilty of at some point...

...that said...kepp 'em coming :laugh:

This thread is obviously wack and deluded. Palmer is injured, it should be clear that he will be traded for Ben Roethlisberger now.

You know, this joke thread actually makes some sense now. Palmer is coming off a devastating knee injury. So this trade is more feasible than it was when it was first suggested. :laugh:

Sarcasm pill for autism patients

by ALEXANDRA FREAN

London, May 23: Scientists in Israel have cracked the complicated cognitive code that determines whether individuals are able to understand sarcasm. Yes, right.

. . . .

“I’m not sure this study implies that people who don’t get sarcasm have brain damage,” she said, tactfully. “Maybe they just have problems understanding other people’s state of mind.”

I took my medication today. Did you? :)

yeah good idea, give up an amazing young, MVP, rising star pro bowl QB on a team which is based around...and just signed a 6 yr 98 million dollar contract...for LaVar which ppl say is losing his value (but us skins fans no how amazing he is) i think thats fair no?...stupid comment...

I'm closing this because I don't want to see this on the front page EVER again.

It's downright embarassing that people can't help themselves from keeping it on the front page... even though they know how ridiculous this trade scenario.
