      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.

The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

Recommended Posts

They are very easy to hate, although for some odd reason, I don't think my hatred for them has reached the LeBron Cav's hate.

The Cavs had a lot of other annoying personalities. Damon Jones was probably my 2nd least favorite player after LeBronze.

I can't stand Anderson Varajao.

Master Flopper. The Cavs ****ty players had this fake tough guy persona just because they had LeBron carrying their sorry asses.

Jordan Crawford = a healthy Gilbert Arenas

It's uncanny. Their ability to contort their bodies when taking it to the basket, their lightning quick release. Once he gets his 3 point shot going, he's going to be a heck of a player.

Crawford needs to improve his efficiency but he's got a lot of game. Love his tenacity. We should try our best to keep the trio of Wall, Young and Crawford intact. Extremely solid guard rotation.

I think that Crawford could end up being a great 6th man ala Jamal Crawford, but also could start as well could do either very well

Saw the replay on YouTube of the elbow. He plants an elbow in his face and Wall throws either a punch or swat at the dudes midsection when he throws either his fore arm or elbow at walls face a second time blatantly. I dont blame wall for it.

According to Heat fans, Wall overreacted and he needs to "grow up".

James complained later that Washington’s Maurice Evans should have been called for a flagrant foul.

“I don’t know if Mo Evans intentionally wants to be dirty. I watch a lot of basketball. I see a lot of basketball every day, and anytime when someone gets grabbed around the neck, it’s an automatic flagrant-1. If I’m wrong, tell me I’m wrong,” James said. “Sometimes it’s unfair, because of how strong I am, you know. I can take the punishment of course, but at the same time, I think it’s unfair sometimes.”

McGee’s take: “Ilgauskas tried to punk (Wall), hit him in the face with his elbow. Obviously, (Wall) wasn’t going for it. ... I went over there to break it up, and Juwan Howard tried to come over and blind-side, push me, or whatever.”
“It’s physical. That’s fine. We’re not running away from that,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “When the dust settles, it becomes about a basketball game.”

Lebroni is still a ***** I see. And his number of championships remains at ZERO. I heard Evans gave him a hard fould but I didn't see it.

We flat out stole Crawford from the Hawks.

BronBron cries for fouls, and Wade gets a call anytime he is touched. Yet both are allowed to manhandle opponents on the def end. If NY can find a way to climb over Philly, Miami could be in serious trouble in the 1st round.

McGee is officially my favorite player in the NBA I love his intensity he backs down from no one. He blocks both Bosh and Wade and went up vs Lebron once but was a hard foul. First guy too come too the defense of Wall. He does some stupid things at times, I hope it's an age thing and will grow out of it. I think he will be a top 5 center in this league hopefully as earily as next year.

P.S. Jay Mariotti is a *****

I had absolutely no idea this douchebag got arrested for domestic violence and gotten himself fired from ESPN. GOOD. I couldn't stand that *******.

Someone local used to trash Mariotti every chance he got. I wanna say either Kornheiser or Feinstein but it might have been someone else. I can't remember. They just said he was the biggest douche and hack in the business.
