      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.

The reasons all of these links keep getting taken down is because they are being posted publicly on here. We as a community need to keep these things a bit more private.

HAIL - the ATDHE.net link saved the Redskins bar at Winstons OB SD.

But as a computer guy, the site carriers suspect baggage, but will work.

I'm absolutely livid.

I was dumb enough to order NFL.com's preseason package and the stream for tonight's game isn't working--all of the others are working, btw. I live in Michigan, so it's not a blackout issue.

Last week, I wasn't able to watch the game either because NFL.com doesn't stream the NFL Network National games w/ the package, which is complete BS, since some cable companies don't offer NFL Network and the description of the service is a bit misleading, leading one to believe that the only games that won't be streamed are local and non-NFL Network national.

Hey guys, I think I just got a virus from a script on atdhe....be careful.

I got a virus warning from trying to find another stream from StreamTV (I lost the excellent stream that I was using for the first half on the last play of 2Q) when I tried to click through their idiotic survey crap!

I'd definitely be demanding a refund! Failing that, how about filing a class action against the league. I'm all for them making money, but those of us who pay for stuff like Sunday Ticket and the RSN's and yet we are blacked out are getting **** upon!

Which stream are you guys using at atdhe that's bad? The one i'm using is great

The one that DOESN'T require you to download the virus-laden VShare app. The one that reverts to the NFL.com scoreboard on commerical breaks. I mean, it's streaming so that's better than nothing. But it's crap quality compared to the one on StreamTv that went down at the end of the 1st half. That was excellent for streaming.

EDIT: Check that .. it was the one on Justin.TV/streamsportslive that went down that was good.

The Vshare one is the same stream, just better quality. I have had no problems with the stream however I am running good virus protection and am running noscript.

I don't know .. when *I* get a virus warning on a proggie required to do anything, I tend to punt. Regardless of how much better said quality is. :cool:

I'm watching the atdhe.net stream on my wife's sprint evo. Technology is awesome

Yep. The Justin.TV stream is running on my Sprint Touch Pro (using Skyfire browser). If I was out of town or on the road, this would be awesome.

Your virus protection is not up to date or good as it should have blocked the virus. I use Avast and it block bad sites. I had no problem watching some of the game on their website tonight.

i closed it when they told me i had to download something to watch it. no thanks.

Sometime you have to download plug-in to watch videos on some websites. I didn't hesitate and installed it (again I know Avast is going to block anything that is not legit) and it asked me if I should make their home page my home page...just unchecked both boxes and went my merry way. :)

I have an up to date McAfee AV. I got rid of the virus. My no-script on Fire Fox popped up with a warning message when I went to atdhe. I think it was a script in a third party ad. I'm not sure. After that I decided to run my AV and it found one trojan. I ran a full scan last night and there was nothing. The only place I've been since then is here, youtube, atdhe, and channelsurfing.net. Because my no-script gave me a pop up message when going to atdhe, I assume it was something up with it.

I googled "atdhe virus" and a lot of searches popped up with people on different sport forums saying they got infected by going there.
