      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.

Guys I need recommendations on the next TV series I should start watching.

Recommended Posts

The Blacklist got a renewal for a Season 7. If you've been watching this season, you thought it was heading towards a conclusion this year.

Rewatching the Expanse in 4k.  New TV (woo hoo).  It really is a good show and worth the second go round.  Picking up a few things I missed.

Never seen the bachelor, but I disagree that it is the worst.  My wife watches Hollywood Medium... That is the WORST.  The dude pretends that he has never heard of the D list celebs that he gives readings to.  Then he proves his psychic abilities by telling them things about themselves that you can find on their Wikipedia and Facebook pages.  The "celebrities" show their shock and amazement.  Finally, the Hollywood Medium tells them some dead family member is happy in the afterlife and wants them to know how much they love them.  Celeb then cries and tells the medium how greatful they are to know their dead relative is at peace.

Idk about that. My wife watched one where he met with Alan Thicke and told him a relative is telling him he needs to get his heart checked out or something like that. Then a few months later he dies of a heart attack.

 

I usually never believe in any kinda stuff like that but this kid is kinda freaky. He brings up some obscure stuff.

I would explain why I think that is a very naive way to look at the act of cold readings... which is a centuries old practice.  But I have learned the hard way, through conversations with my wife, that it will just make people angry with me.  So, I will say you might be right, and I may be wrong.

 

The most bizarre aspect of my discussions with my wife is that she does not believe there is an afterlife... but if I tell her that it is bull**** that the guy is talking to someone who is in the afterlife, she gets mad at me and explains why there is no other way he could have known that stuff.  If I point this contradiction out to her, she gets very, very mad at me.

I finally finished The Punisher . I liked it, but I think all these shows ending was overall for the best. The overwhelming similarity in how they they tell their stories, and the simplistic, rugged take was starting to get a bit old.

 

DD is really the only one that will be truly missed

 

This is a solid take on my concern with the Netflix marvel thing going on.  I don't like using the word oversaturated, but I'm telling you, it's huge reason why I felt so meh about captain marvel.  Maybe in a vacuum without the rest of mcu I like it better.

Watching it right now. I usually wait 3 weeks so I can watch them back to back. And I was just thinking about how this is season 6 and it doesn't even seem like it. No way they could it end it in 6 seasons. Glad to know there is another season. :)

4 episodes into the Netflix Original Love, Death, & Robots that just dropped on Friday.  Loving it so far.  Animated anthology series about the future, with each episode only 12-20 minutes long. 

 

Wide range of content, from dark comedy, suspense thriller, revenge, and all out alien invasion action.  

 

One episode is about robots on a tourist trip in a post-apocalyptic city on earth, taking selfies with skeletons of people who committed suicide while talking about how much humans sucked.  :rofl89:

Yeah, though I  agree with your assessment on CM. Wakanda and the Snap is a tough act to follow. That may be the apex of the MCU, and I remember saying as much last summer.

 

But yeah, done with the Netflix stuff. Always two villains  (one slightly overshadowing the other). Everyone is either mentally ill or somehow involved with the military (which is why I thoroughly enjoyed S1 of Jessica Jones , incorporating less of that than the other shows. It all just kinda got repetitive. 

........

 

@Chew you should check out Castlevania while you're at it. Deep, for a videogame adaptation,  and surprisingly brutal in it's delivery.

Nice, man.  I'll check it out. Was scrolling through the 'Flix yesterday and didn't see it...but then again I wasn't looking for it.

Sin -- Love, Death, & Robots is mandatory viewing.  It's awesome.

Goliath on amazon prime.  It's Billy Bob Thornton doing a light Bad Santa routine mixed with a storyline like Erin Brockovich.  It's great.

I'm also four episodes in.  The episode with the three robots was my favorite so far.  Very funny.  I really liked three of the four that I have seen so far.

Watched a bunch of these last night. Would totally recommend them to anyone interested. Reminded me of the Animatrix which I love.

Within the next couple weeks iirc.

 

Nope. This Sunday. Can't believe they're axing this when complete and utter crap like TWD is still allowed to persist long past its expiration date

S2 coming April 5th.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This kept my curiosity and reminds me that this is a character that's been around for a while.  I like how the dark tone of the show can break through and take over.

 

I miss the Salem in the last rendition of Sabrina, but he woulda got murdered first episode in this version. Still one of my favorite TV characters of all time : )
