      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.

Disrespecting it by throwing it on the ground is the same as pissing on thier grave.

You don't know that disrespect was his intention. None of us have enough information to make an accurate judgment here. If he made a mistake then he made a mistake. Stuff happens.

Let's not make a federal case out of it.

Is it just me or have the last 4-5 live interviews not been available? Everytime it either fails to connect or like now it just sits at a blank screen. Has anyone else had this if you'd tried to watch the live Zorn coverage?

Nevermind, this one just started working 6 minutes behind schedule. Last week both of the ones they had did not work at all.

I can agree that the sanchez stuff was a cover to try and get rak to fall....they did have a huge man crush on him and I heard rack on serius radio the week b4 the draft saying after he met with the danny he really wanted to be a redskin....but the cutler thing was legit espn had set up a satelite feed with us bc the deal was done b4 chicago swept in and grabbed him

I do want to give Snyder credit for not trying to outbid Chicago after Da Bearsss swept in with their ante.

I happened to notice our head coach Jim Zorn had a 45 degree angled slope going from right to left downward on da' back of his head. It was in the 3rd of 4th quarter when they showed a back shot of him. I was like "You got to be kidding me!?!" "No ffff'in way?!?" I was a terrible shave and fade... Who the hell cut his hair, it had to be a player. I looked on NFL network but they wont replay game till Monday morning. Anyone else catch this...? He is one silly cat.

Regardless there are proper ways to handle a flag, even though Sellers didn't do it on purpose, hopefully he apologizes and people like yourself take time to learn how to handle a flag properly.

Jeeze dude, you should work on Fox News (which I do watch). Posting the pictures, great touch.

You can now say that I hate America (which I think is the greatest country in the world) and that I "don't support the troops".

How is this even relevant? What does his haircut have to do with anything football related?

Hopefully ESPN brings more attention to the issue so it becomes a learning experience for all.

I really don't know if this is legit or not. I heard this from a friend (we know how these turn out right? :P) that John Clayton (looked but haven't found anything yet) has reported on ESPN that the Pats could look to grab Damon Huard from the Niners by Wednesday. As he is the only one that could be readily available (assuming the Niners would want to part with him) that knows the Pats offense.

Apparently, Haynesworth's hit left Brady much more injuried than the Pats are leading to believe.

Again, from a friend via text. Take it with a grain of salt unless you see something with you own eyes. ;)

Belichick said that he didn't take Brady out of the 3rd quarter because he was injured, he just wanted to give the backups some time. :hysterical:

How lucky are we as fans in this area??? I mean our teams havent wont a championship in years but we have some pretty hot chicks to cover our favorite teams. Lindsay from Channel 4, Kelly Johnson from CSN that chick from channel 9 isnt bad and now Channel 5 has another hottie named Lindsay. Just saw her on the 1000 news and she's pretty hot. I would love to see a jello wrestling match between these chicks to find out who's station is the best.

Ok, I am boring. We finally have a good punter. If we go 2-14 and beat the Cowboys twice I am happy. Even if our offense and defense go south, we can always look forward to nice long and high punts! WOW I can't wait to start the season!

Did you know that Hunter Smith is a country singer who really sings well? We are not talking about a rapper-wanna-be but a legitimate, talented recording artist. Who said punters are dull and boring.

Check out this YouTube video!

Sofa of Hunter Smith Lives on!
