      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.

NFL.com: Jeff Fisher Trolls Redskins During Coin Toss

Recommended Posts

Nobody's arguing.

It's a dick move.

If you say so. I think it's rather funny.

They don't have a QB.

Neither do we. Their non-QB just beat ours. Again.

You make it sound like 20 wins is equivalent to what SF has done in last 3 years.

20 wins is still more than we've got, in a much easier division.

They still don't have a QB, so I'm willing to say Vegas pegs them at 7.5 wins next year to.

Which still probably be more than Vegas pegs us. The Redskins are at the point that they can't look down their nose at ANYONE these days. This team is literally the dregs of the league now.

Than be a Rams fan.

I guess everyone forgot they traded the 2nd pick they got from us in 2012 to go down and that pick ended up being Alshon Jeffery. Well played by Fisher though, you have to have a sense of humor about this.  But I will be quick to challenge Rams fans what have they done with those picks? 7-9 Every year I guess constitutes winning in their minds..Still not only does fisher rub those picks in our face, he proceeds to shut us out as well. All I can do is applaud.

Unequivocally... I would rather be where we are taking a gamble on a franchise QB.

Yea... They got depth!!! They're gonna finish 7-9 again.

Volts go from 1-15 to perennial playoff team. BECAUSE OF A QB.

Rams don't have one. We don't either. But, we took a shot and lost.

It's a joke to trot out SOME of the picks. More than half don't even play.

'Look what we did, we kinda got some players'.

It would be poignant if they were on their way to home field advantage in the conference.

Sorry, I ain't happy where the Skins are, but I don't take slaps in the face from losers.

Not only did they slap us, they boned US PRETTY WELL.

Why can't what Fisher did be funny, and the Rams be a decade long joke that has done nothing with their army of All Pro`s, destined for 8-8/9-7 until they find a qb?

We can't have both? Sigh

Their arrow is surely pointing up (how far up, no one knows), but just because I detest Snyder doesn't mean I'm going to insert my head up the ass of a team that has done Jack, and tell them how awesome they are, making excuses as to why they haven't done anything . The way people are talking around here you'd think they`re SB quality.... I know, I know, "If they had a QB". If I had a billion dollars I'd be rich

Give me a break.

Seriously. I don't understand why it even matters what their record is. They could be winless, and it'd still be hilarious. It's basically rubbing it in our faces that our savior is sitting on the bench because he's so terrible.

 

Every thread on here is calling people "classless." The media leaks are "classless" for being anonymous, London Fletcher is "classless" for calling out Haslett in public, Gruden is "classless" for his press conferences, and Fisher is "classless" for this. Maybe everyone is just calling the Redskins out for being a joke? Maybe no one cares if they come off as "classless" to the fans of this dumpster fire?

I'm going to laugh even harder when Fisher is bounced on his ear after this season or next.

 

Bounced on his ear?  Did you not see the team he has built play today?

 

The Rams had the hardest schedule in the NFL and will still have a winning season in all likelihood with their 2nd and 3rd string QBs.  The Rams are fielding the best defense in football right now.

You are the best. Your team beat us

Now go back to your own board. Thanks

It was funny and Danny and Bruce deserved it frankly. Jeff Fischer is still a d-bag and will be looking for jobs in the next year or so. He's banking that Shanny will give him a job since he stuck it to Dan lol.

They certainly got the better of us today, and their record is certainly presently better than ours. They are trending up. BUT they are also not winning the Super Pooper Bowl this year. They won't even come near it. Will they even make the paloffs? Most likely not.

 

They still have to prove that they got the better results from that trade. We won an NFC-East title off of it. They presently have TWO whole players via that trade starting. Their record is slightly above .500.

 

I tend to think that you don't pull that kind of crap when you can't overwhelmingly bury your opponents nose in the "We are superior because of the trade" department. Then again .. I generally try not to be an asshat. Seems that being a persistent asshat is what kept Grilliams from being head coach here, so maybe he's finally proved that point.

 

Uhhhh, what?!  Janoris Jenkins, Michael Brockers, Alec Ogletree, Stedman Bailey, and Greg Robinson are all starters.  Stacey could be but he was hurt early in the season.

sorry if this has already been posted, or didn't deserve its own thread, but I thought this was about as classless of a move as they come.

 

 

I don't think it was classless. And if you actually think it was, well there's no way it's one of the classless moves that's been done in the NFL. I thought it was funny and well deserving of our franchise. Pretty much saying look what you could've had and you did it all for that guy on the bench.

 

I like Fisher. He's the kind of coach we need and sadly will never get with this horrible front office.

It's not Redskins Vs Rsms comparisons... And if it were its a whopping 4 game difference in roughly 3 years.

It's an attempt to humiliate. It would be humiliating if the Rams were actually good. All they have now are 2 seasons of losing records and likely 3rd to come.

So they marched out a bunch of IOUs.

We had an IOU and it got bounced.

It's fine, easy to pile on when someone's down. IMHO, we're no further away from a Super Bowl than they are. Yea- we both need a QB and that fixes just about everything.

As bad as the deal appears to be, Griffin was able to win OROY and 10 games, and I've yet to see the Rams win that many. 

 

Have you seen the Rams schedule?

 

They just finished playing Dallas, Philly, SF, Seattle, KC, SF, Denver, Arizona, San Diego before getting 2 bye weeks vs Oakland and us.

 

Not many teams shut out 2 teams in a row either.

Talk about thorough ownage. After this trolling, they go out on the field and actually prove they won the trade by shutting us out at home. At this point I'm not even mad at Fisher for humiliating us - we have bigger fish to fry, namely the people who set this organization up to be ripe for this kind of humiliation.

I actually hope we continue to trade picks away. That's less careers we get to see ruined or pissed away by playing here. That **** has been wearing on my heart over the years. Forget which team benefits from trading with us, think of the young men who's careers are saved by avoiding this disaster of a franchise.

 

I'm starting to feel sorry for whoever we draft, or signs with us in FA.

He is a perennial 9-7 coach

Exactly. That's part of the reason he gets under my skin. He's hailed as this great coach and aside from the 'music city miracle' year his teams are always mediocre or worse.

And again, it can't be both ways.

It's either funny or it's classless

The Rams are either the 85 Bears or suck monkey ass

I said it was funny. I said the Rams were okay. Where I differ from many is giving absurd praise thAt has yet to be earned.. Why does their record matter? Because success is determined by wins. Nothing more, nothing less. They can brag and have wet dreams about that trade all they want. The fact is, that's the only thing they've "Won"

I don't care what their schedule is like, what division they play in, what position their QB is on the depth chart, or anything else.

In the NFL, you either win, or you do not win. End of story. Everything else is just white noise.

They are the Rams though, so you have to start somewhere, but Herschel Walker this is not.

Please forgive me if I don't throw rose petals at their feet

Ask yourself this... Which is more likely?

In 7 more years do think Rams boards have thread celebrating multiple Titles or thread bemoaning how they did nothing with all those picks (maybe a little footnote how arrogant they were today)?

Seriously... Which is more likely right now?

Probably somewhere in the middle. And honestly, you provided a vast middle (No Hibbert).

That's one extreme or the other. Personally, I think that if they don't find a QB, they'll be a perennial 8 to 10 win team. Nothing g from them I've seen so far suggests to me that they are on the verge of multiple titles, or a **** sandwich
