      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.

Hahaha Draymond attempt to draw a foul was hilariously bad.  The replay was great.

 

He was fouled on that play. You can’t be serious?

They could have called a weak reach, one that is rarely called in the low post, but through his entire spin and eventual release of that ball there was no foul.

So yes, he did foul him. All flopping/exaggerating is ridiculous

Poor cousins

He got tackled like a wide out.  Serge came up with the “who me?” face too, like he didn’t just tackle him on national tv.

They are running 2 and 3 guys at Curry whenever he touches the ball.

 

He's still going to get open for the final shot, isn't he?

 

I don't know if this series has been good, but it's been amazing.
