      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.

Saw it last night.

So I had a great time watching it, first thing I thought it was a little drawn out to start. I was ready for **** to go down. I didn’t like the fat Thor, it was funny at first but then got old. I liked the Thor from Infinity war that comes into Wakanda, that was super badass. I was kinda upset there was no other battles than the big one at the end, I was hoping for more “single fights” like infinity war had but I guess they couldn’t really do that I guess. The final battle was just a couple punches from him, her then on to another avenger. I also really wanted to see Hulk go full beast mode on Thanos and I never really liked Captain America that much until this movie, he was awesome.  Overall I think they did a good job, especially with only a year after the last movie. Infinity war just left me so stunned I guess that’s why I just had more fun seeing IW over this one. 

 

 

Spoiler

I was ok with fat Thor at first, but at some point, I was expecting them to change him into regular Thor and it never happened.  I didnt need fat Thor in the climax.  When he got his costume, that woulda been a perfect time to change him into himself.

A gay character? 

 

I was ok with fat Thor but I did think when he dual wielded Mjolnir and Storm Breaker he would return back to his normal self but instead his hair got pulled back and his beard got braided lol. 

 

I still loved it. He’s done enough as a character. Let him have his cheese wiz and beer

What I didnt get was the Captain Marvel post credit scene seemed to suggest something different than what was in the movie. 

 

Unless, we're to think that wasnt her arrival.

I don’t think that needed to be in spoiler but in Captain Marvel that was her arrival to the Avengers

They explained in the movie it doesn’t work like Back to the Future rules. It’s not going to change the future because that past just becomes the past for your future self. All the events still happen the same. 

 

 

Spoiler

I mean, who's to say he didn't keep doing the Captain America thing, just got married as well?  He still had the shield.

I assume that’s what they were doing on Earth and she shows up, asks where Fury is, finds out and once they tell her what’s going on, she goes to get Tony.

Right, that's what I'm saying, it happens differently in this movie.

She has already been there. They said how long the pager had been transmitting for in the clip and that was with a couple days or something since the Thanos snap. The timeline is that scene happens before we see her in Endgame

A bunch of the Marvel movies are on now, the banter between Ironman and Jarvis is fantastic.

Epic conclusion, though I do agree the first third or so was kinda slow.

 

It was probably meant to be depressing AF, maybe too successful.

I've gotten a little spoiled over the last 10 years, enjoying so much comic hero filmdom. As a result, I was underwhelmed by Antman and the Wasp and by Captain Marvel.

 

Endgame brought me back to being awed and emotionally charged for this franchise. It was incredible all across the board. I laughed, I cried. I laughed again, I cried again.

Loved this movie overall. Loved some arcs(Iron Man), disliked others(Hulk).

 

Two questions:

 

1. What happened to 2014 Gamora? Did she disintegrate with the rest of the 2014 displacements? They used her for a reuniting of sorts then she vanished for the rest of the movie.  Maybe I missed it.

 

2. So what is the confirmed Black Widow movie going to be about?  A prequel or the Search for Spock?

she didn't disintegrate, she was sacrificed for the soul stone in infinity war.  with black widow, i heard it's a prequel/origin story.

He's talking about the Gammora that came back in time with Thanos.  I didn't see her again, either, not even on the GOTG ship at the end. Weird, saw Nebula.

I’m thinking she left after the fight was over. She kicked Quill in the stones and then bounced since she had no connection to the guardians at that point. 

 

Quill was searching for her her at the end so I assume that’ll be part of Guardians 3

I bet that no matter what happens in Guardians 3, that most of it would be about her learning to "love" StarLord again...

Also part of the therapy group was a rad cameo by the great Jim Starlin, who is basically a prime architect of cosmic 70s Marvel. I’m proud to be geeky enough to have recognized it straight away.

This whole MCU endeavour could not have gone any better.
