      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.

Knowing each game is a gimmie.... knowing each year a division win Is guaranteed would suck..like I said if it was the Patriots way... I would be okay with the way it was in the 80s.. don't get me wrong I really enjoyed 91..knowing for a fact whoever played us didn't have a chance and knowing for a fact we were going to score 30-plus points..but year in year out it would get old..to me...this is just my opinion don't judge me

 

See, this is the disconnect, I was 3, @Cooleyfan1993 probably wasn't even born yet.

Sadly, if there was one season Snyder absolutely blew up himself in obvious fashion, 2000 was the one.  He signed Coach Killer Jeff George, Reid’s to force Norv to play him, fired Norv, inserted Robisky, just an absolute catastrophic mess and mostly created by the owner.

Amen!

 

I’m not gonna lie, I was stoked when he made the moves he did, at the time. My dad and I were sitting in our break room at work while we were watching Deion’s press conference. I couldn’t stand that SOB, but I was over the moon about the fact that our secondary would consist of Deion, Champ, and DG. My dad just shook his head and said “We’re gonna fall off from last year.” I said “You’re crazy! We are now the overwhelming favorite to win the Super Bowl.” 

 

According to Vegas, we were the favorite, but what an extremely disappointing season! The sad part is, is the franchise has went downhill from there, with no end to the spiral in sight.

 

My dad’s last game was the last playoff game against GB. He passed away about 2 weeks later, just a couple of days after his favorite musician, Glenn Frey, died. He was upbeat about the future with “you know who” at QB. I miss my dad, but I’m glad he hasn’t had to witness anymore of the laughingstock our beloved Redskins continue to be.

It’s on Instagram, so I’m not exactly sure how to quote it, but last night a girl brought a sign to the caps game that said “it’s my 18th birthday, can I get a puck?”  Ovechkin bounces a puck a few times and tossed it over to her, and she started weeping with joy.

 

And after I was done being a little choked up, I couldn't  help but just think about how far the two fan bases are. The Caps fans (of which I am a 30 year member) are euphoric about the team, the team treats them well, and there isn’t just a mutual love between fans and team.

 

And the Redskins are the exact and polar opposite.  

 

And that makes me sad. 

 

But thank God for Alex and the Caps.

I told my husband that story this morning (he's a newer fan, but it got him in the feels, like when Ovi got a puck to a youngster at an away game for his birthday).

I think some of it has to do with accessibility, fans being closer and being able to communicate with players easier. 

But you're right, and Ovi's just ****in awesome. 🏆

To me this story simply says that Zack Brown has as much trouble tacking tight ends off the field as he does on the field. :P

 

Also, not 2 months after Foster got outed by a private chat going public, it happens again?  I mean, seriously, how dumb do you have to be?

 

A wealthy pro-football player should be able to go to any club and get some-some without resorting to twitter.  I'm not sure who Britney Jones is, that's the chick he was hitting up to "book a session," but I guarantee there are plenty of hot chicks at local bars that would be falling over each other to have nookie withe a professional football player.

 

What a ding-dong.

Where is the Tress Way Love thread?

 

I am still stunned. Zero touchbacks.  I had accepted that any punt anywhere near touchback territory was basically a net 20.  Punts weren't even angled towards the corner, just kicked right down the center of the field out of the back of the endzone. This has happened for decades.  At least teams FINALLY woke up and started going for it on 4th down vs punting for a net 17.   Why did it take teams so long to figure out going for it on 4th > net 17, anyways?

 

Tress Way is a total stud and his acquisition thread from 3 years ago should be bumped/pinned for a week out of respect to our MVP.

I went to the game on New Year's Eve. Despite the loss and the wretched weather, it was still worth every dime I put down for it.

I feel at home finally. Everyone’s pissed, day dreams about how or why snyder could lose or sell the team. Demanding serious change. Media piling on. National sports hosts carving out segments on their show to lambast snyder and the team

Mic volume not loud enough to hear Belicheck's grumblings?

But for real - despite renouncing my fandom, I still like coming here because I still follow the team and all my friends are dorks (like the kind who will call it "sportsball") so I gotta talk about this somewhere.

So biscuits (Mitchell trubisky),my wife's nick name for him lol says getting off of social media has helped him tremendously with his mental health...hmmm

 

Social media is deteriorating this country. One young mind at a time...I am so extremely fortunate I had parents who raised me properly/social media wasn't a thing when I was a younger kid than I am now. Please believe me when I say unless you use social media for your employment or to keep in contact with friends or family across the country none of it is worth it at all and you can actually live without it..feel free and ask me how!...
