      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.

I heard the 106.7 guys talk briefly about the Patriots letting KC score a TD to get the ball back with time.  I think KC did it too.  If Bellichek is doing it, dare I think the Worm has turned and it will be common place late in games within a few years.

 

The chance that we will ever be wise enough to try it?

We still haven't even given hurry up a go, and that fad has kind of come and gone.

So today on Twitter Adam schefter tweeted that there would be some breaking news coming up soon. In the comments section, some guy comments “AB to the Steelers!!!” And i say “you can’t go to someplace you’re already at! It would have to be “AB BACK to the Steelers”. And the guy goes “r/whooooosh”. 

 

I asked the jerk to kindly explain to me the “joke” i missed, but he said no......**** the ***** off. Jerk.

Brady already backing up what I've said a few times in a couple different threads I think... He's recently said there's a 0% chance of him retiring he wants to play till he's 45 he has I believe three more years which covers what I said about him winning this Superbowl, losing next year's Super Bowl to the saints, then winning the Super Bowl after that then will retire,with hopefully bb.

A dynasty that could, conceivably, last 20+ full seasons. Weren't we supposed to be in a post-dynasty era now that free agency is in play? Unbelievable.

My expert prediction - If Donald gets a sack in the first half, the Rams win.

 

Its no secret how to beat Brady. Helmet on his pretty chin early - which causes internal dissension as he has a meltdown blaming the poor schmuck that is expected to contain Donald.

Brady is the Goat. He win or lose this game doesn't even matter to me. But my opinion doesn't matter 😜

Yes that’s for sure. 

 

One interesting thing i heard On nfl network last night was if the patriots lose, he’d match Jim Kelly (I think that’s who nfl network said) for most super bowl losses with 4. Right now, Brady’s record is 5-3. However with a win he ties the Steelers for most super bowl wins.

Here’s a random thought, this message board has become pretty stale. I remember when I found out on this site we had acquired Desean Jackson. ES had that gem before anyone. This use to be a place for fans of the Washington Redskins to come for breaking news and to discuss the team. Now it seems it’s about talking trash about the team and the Redskins organization. Not that anyone cares, but I can’t take it anymore. I’m a little sad because from 08 to 2013 or so this was a great resource for fans of the team. Now, in my opinion the trolls have ruined it. Adios amigos.

Why was the Superbowl thread locked?  Is posting about the game not allowed?  These rules get weird sometime

I cannot think of a better time to wear my Champ Bailey throwback.  Welcome to Canton Champ!

 

I think he'll go in as a Bronco.  He did play there longer.  I did always like Champ, put up excellent numbers.

Belichick dominated Mcvay. 

Pats win with D, a short passing game, and a good run game. Sometimes we wanna make it more complicated than it is.

Probably cause the GAME talk belonged in the Around The NFL gameday thread and that one was for probably just redskins Super Bowl talk 🤷🏻‍♂️
