      We’re still doing this?  Absolutely!  Despite all the compelling reasons to just let everyone go home and enjoy and extended offseason, this is not an option.  The games must be played, and therefore we the long-suffering fans will feel compelled to watch.  Even games no reasonable football fan would choose to watch like, for example, today’s Redskins Jets game.   

      Today’s convergence of sadness features the 30th ranked scoring offense (Jets 14.4 ppg) versus the 32nd (Redskins 12.0 ppg).  The first team to 15 wins!  With no playoff aspirations the compelling story lines for this game are largely limited to watching young players (hopefully) develop.  Dwayne Haskins gets his first home start and Derrius Guice is back from injury.   
       
      My, reasonable, goals for today’s game:  
      1- Score a touchdown 
      2- Score more than 17 points.   
      3- Haskins throws for 200 yards or more with no interceptions  
      4- Guice runs the ball at least 10 times and finishes at 3.5 yards per carry and healthy.  
       
      Hoping for a win at this point feels like setting myself up for disappointment, so I’m happy to settle for an entertaining loss.  
       
      Special thanks to @pez for some excellent Guinness beef stew.  If you absolutely have to stand in a frozen parking lot at 9am, the best place to do it is at the Extremeskins Tailgate with Pez and @Huly.  Great fans, great people. 
       
      The Redskins have declared for the following players as inactive: 
      Paul Richardson  
      Colt McCoy 
      Deshazor Everett 
      Chris Thompson  
      Ross Pierschbacher 
      Vernon Davis  
      Tim Settle  
       
      The Jets declared the following players as inactive  
      Nate Hairston  
      Darryl Roberts  
      Paul Worrilow 
      Matthias Farley  
      CJ Mosley  
      Jordan Willis  
      Leo Koloamatangi 
       
      1st Quarter - Redskins 0 - 6 Jets
      If you wanted to sit in the cold and watch a football game with some Jets fans at FedEx, but were worried that there were not enough seats available, I have good news.  There’s plenty of space available, so come on down and prove you’re a real fan by sitting though this in person.
       
      Jets dominated the 1st quarter even though they only scored 6 points.  The reason being that Washington managed only 13 yards of offense and a single first down.  
       
      Question: Is it still a check down pass if the QB never looks at anyone else?
       
      2nd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      The Jets have achieved an insurmountable 13 point lead early in the 2nd quarter.  All hope is lost.

      Is there a more perfect example of the Redskins offense than their first scoring drive in the 2nd quarter?  Interception gives the Redskins the ball on the Jets 16 yard line.  They proceed to march 10 yards backwards before kicking a field goal from the Jets 26.  It's perfect.  Two or three more field goals we can call it a day. 

      The Jets score again and if feels like they are are just piling on at this point.  Three touchdowns in the first half for them, just three points for the redskins.  Our streak of no touchdowns has now extended to 15 quarters. 
       
      3rd Quarter - Redskins 3 - 20 Jets
      There is a spider slowly descending from the ceiling in the press box and it's the most interesting thing that's happened during the third quarter of this game. 
       
      I have decided to allow the spider to live, provided it does not touch me.  I'm off to get some more caffeine. 

      4th Quarter - Redskins 17 - 34 Jets
      The first wave of Redskins fans, the few that are here, started streaming towards the exits after that 4th Jets touchdown.  As if the Jets didn't have this game wrapped up in the 2nd quarter. 
       
      Jet have now more than doubled their average points per game and have matched their season high of 34 points (and they missed two field goals in this game). 
       
      TOUCHDOWN REDSKINS!  THE DROUGHT IT OVER!  Guice took a short pass from Haskins  all the way to the house.  2 point conversion is successful on a pass from Haskins to Quinn. 
       
      The Redskins score another touchdown!  This feels like an embarrassment of riches, even if we are still certain to lose this game. 
       
      End of Game.
       
      Let's review those reasonable goals I mentioned earlier:
       
      1- Success.
      2- Close enough, I'm counting it
      3- Haskins did throw for over 200, but unfortunately did have an interception. 
      4- Guice was not given the opportunity to run the ball ten times today.  He did however score on a 45 yard TD pass and finish the game healthy.  I'll take it.
       
      Even though the Redskins lost, it was good to see the offense show some faint signs of life and end the streak of games without a TD.  The team looked competitive for much of the second half, and perhaps they could have made this a fun game if they carried that same energy throughout.  It was good to see Guice and Mclaurin show out today.  I think both of them have a future with this team that I look forward to seeing.

Unfortunate photo from a Women's Org fundraiser my wife recently attended. They were supposed to write uplifting things on the white board.

Mom still buys me clothes. I don't live with them but I appreciate it.

205. Feeling good. That's officially 30 lbs.

Lucky ****. I was 1-****ing-80 when I got back from Denver (whenever that was. RTT live posted my entire drive. Less than two days ****es. I'm a beast. But yeah, October iirc?) Big part of the reason I came back. Lost 40 pounds there cause my bro ****ed me over and I ate nothing but Easy Mac for like 6 months. True I worked at a Mexican Restaurant there and true I love Mexican food but.....omg. I was their main delivery driver. I have no idea how I made money. El Costello. They used to try to force me to eat their food. Did so twice. Can't-go-wrong soft tacos once and arguably my favorite dish of all time, cheese enchiladas. I'll Just say this and I need say no more, I could barely eat their cheese quesadillas. Think about that. Anyway my Easy Mac diet had me drop a **** ton of weight. Then I had my seizure when I got back I think in February. One of the meds I'm on now as a result gives me a ****ing wicked sweet tooth. Back up up to 240. (I'm 6'1"/6'2" ftr). It's literally impossible to buy anything but socks and shoes (I've always bought my hats big. Just because I never know what I'm gonna do with my hair) when your weight fluctuates like so.

Think about this. I joined the Army at 18 a decade ago. Height hasn't changed at all. Guess how much I weighed when I enlisted??

Doc,

 

I lived with my wife and mother-in-law for 6 years. Best thing I spent money on was one of them quiet toilet seats.  You just tap it and it goes down by itself.  Finish up, shake it out and tap the seat. (Yes, more TOOC material.  I've been gotten twice today).

Doc, leave the sit down and put the lid down too. And also, don't expect them to be thrilled when they open the lid and see ball hair everywhere so make sure your pubes aren't all over the seat.

I mean, unless you're trying to scoop them Clarence Thomas style

Also, don't make one mention of them leaving every last one of their bathroom products out by the sink. They get all pissy when you do that

Yeah I remember the first and last time I thought I'd help my wife out by putting her curling iron back under the sink where it belonged.

Edit: so scarred couldn't even finish my post. Needless to say, she swatted that idea away like a young Mutombo and stood over my crumpled body wagging her finger at me

ack...all wired up from more coffee, and drinking it much later than normal, and having had to write a very lengthy and detailed presentation for most of the day and into tonight, and it carried over to making a superrrr long post in the jay thread while i ate some very spicy chili (delicious but my stomach will pay me back for that and the coffee this time of evening).

 

even tho i gave a very firm "tl;dr" warning at the top of the post, i'm still going to get a lot of **** over it.  :wacko:  ^_^

 

of course i could have edited it out and thought about it as is my norm, but then wtf, what do i have to gain or lose. let it go and let 'em do whatever.  :P

 

and i still apologized for it anyway  :lol:

 

can you tell i've had a lot of coffee?  :D
