      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

      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.

I'm tired of missed tackles, bad angles, and contact without any attempt to wrap up

 

I'm tired of the run defense being consistently gashed.

 

I'm tired of Gruden and his "What the **** just happened" face.

 

I'm tired of WR's, TE's and RB's running 6 yard routes when it's 3rd and 7.

Let's hope they somehow bring better execution to the regular season games it looked pretty raw during the preseason.

I’m a bit surprised Wentz isn’t starting for the opener Thursday night. Might not see him until week 3 or 4??

I watched him take snaps in practice last week and he was gimpy, his knee actually buckled one time on his drop.

Interesting. I was thinking all month he was going to be on schedule to start week 1. I guess it’s a smart move by Philly then. I also hope Philly loses each game that Nick Foles starts. I think we have the best chance out of our entire division to win our week 1 game actually :) i could see the eagles losing to the falcons, the cowboys losing to the panthers, giants losing to the jaguars (if the jags are anything like last season) and us beating Arizona.

Yea I heard that Ravens punter was for some reason in the very worst part of Baltimore, at the very worst time at 4am.

The guy is from Norway, so I'm guessing he probably had no idea what kind of place it was.

 

Short story, I once left Little Italy with my wife and two small children, Florida plates, GPS took me North for some reason and I very nearly had to run over people getting out of there, the streets were full of people and not people worthy of asking directions of. It seemed pretty lawless and life threatening, guns were out, I fear He took a wrong turn there leaving the stadium...and ended up in Hell.

They might.  But this is the same thing people thought when Foles came in last year.  He struggled in one game, then figured it out and played really well.

 

I kinda expect him to play well in the regular season.

I very much hope I'm wrong.

 

But, "I have a bad feeling about this" is kinda my mantra for the entire NFL season this year for some reason.

For any of you Draft King degenerates out there you have to love Adrian Peterson this week and its not just the homer in my talking. I think he is 4600 or 4700, absolute steal, He will have a big game on Sunday..  Im predicting 98 yards 2 TD's
