      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.

Do you have any numbers on that scenario?

 

You should do the homework on that and report back to the class.

 

See Pumpkin, there's a difference between what you said and what I said, mine was establishing a hypothetical while your's was establishing something unfounded as a reason or rationale.

See, par for the course with you and the rest of the ilk on the Right. You lob out a "reason" as if you have substance backing up the claim when in reality it's nothing more than another bull**** ploy to muddy the waters. 

 

Truely is all they know how to do. They like to act like their master and just troll, offering little of substance.

So @twa other than just parroting out 2nd Amendment as if it's some sort of trump card over all reason and rational thinking.

 

Why should cars be MORE regulated than gun?

That's funny, I can by an AR-15 from a yard sale with zero registration or license. But I can't drive a car without registration, insurance, and licensure.

 

I know you love being obtuse on purpose because I suppose you think it makes you look clever and smart, but even you know you're lying.

Oh yeah, I forgot that I can order all my parts anonymously and from third parties to make my own ghosted AR all online, so the gov't won't even know it exists.

 

But yeah, go on telling us how much more guns are regulated than cars.

I bought a drag car at 15, no licence.ins or registration required

I bought a motorcycle and have never had a licence and obviously no ins or registration required.

 

want me to post a stupid graphic like you?

Did you drive them on roads?

in other words use them to get around in?

 

Tell ya what, let's agree that guns should have the same regulations as those cars you bought. That way you can't use them in public and are only able to use them in hyper controlled environments like shooting ranges and your garage.

Of course the level of obtuseness continues.

What kinda idiot would think regulating two totally different things the same way would be good?

 

Agreeing to such idiocy would make me one too...I'll pass :807:

Yawn, this is the ****ing problem, people like you would rather play ****ing games than solve this thing.

 

To drive a car:

Driver training

Driver testing

Driver licensure

Auto licensing

Auto insurance

Annual renewals

 

To own and use a gun:

Nothing

 

The day you wake up and realize that this is where we start is the day I'll start taking you seriously. Until then you're just another troll on the internet.

Personally, I don't care which you choose.

G'nite.

Right, training, testing, restricting, licensing, registering, and insuring a device that takes you to work makes absolute sense, while doing the same for a device that's sole intended purpose is to kill is absurd.

You got it buddy. Because if that's your logic then you're seriously fried.

All rested up and it still makes sense to put killing devices under the same types of governance as we put commuting devices.

 

1st Amendment isn't absolute and neither is the 2nd.

 

You have to get approved for a permit to express yourself through protest, but not own an AR. Want to carry an AR with a 100 round magazine a busy street? No problem.

Perfectly legal right up until you decide to shoot 35 people in 30 seconds. Bear in mind the car you drove there is not only registered, licensed, and insured, but you also had to prove to the government that you knew how to operate it safely, and if you decided to drive that car through the crowd you've decided to shoot up, you might kill a couple people at most.

Strongly suspect that I'd object to some of her proposals.  

 

And I've got better odds of being President than she has of getting these proposals passed.  

 

But props for having the guts to actually go on record making the suggestios.

I see the plan to arm school officials is working well...

 

Second suspect wanted for stolen AR-15, tactical vest from Macon co. school turns himself in

 

MACON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — UPDATE: Macon Co. Sheriff confirms with News 2 that 18-year-old Lee Clark has now turned himself in.

 

Sheriff’s offices in Macon and Clay counties were searching for an AR-15 missing from a school.

 

Officials said the sheriff’s department issued AR-15 and a tactical vest were stolen from Red Boiling Springs School in Macon County.

 

Macon County Superintendent Tony Boles told News 2 the SRO’s office at the school was broken into overnight. The gun and a tactical vest were taken.

 

Boles said the school was put on lockdown procedures and the students were “never in any danger.” He said parents weren’t notified because the investigation was ongoing and they didn’t want to cause panic.

 

The AR-15 and vest were recovered in the woods in Macon County.

 

Adam Cisneros, the man wanted in connection with the theft, turned himself into the Macon County Sheriff’s Department. They are looking for another suspect, 18-year-old Lee Clark.

The only thing that stops a bad guy with a stolen government issued gun in a school is a guy with a replacement for the stolen government issued gun.

And there you see the problem with the "arm the school" talking point.  

 

In order to have one "good guy with a gun" at one school shooting, you have to put thousands (10s of thousands?) of guns, in thousands of schools.  And keep them there, just in case they're needed.  

 

And those thousands of guns will slightly increase the risk to students, themselves.  "Aw, ****!" will, occasionally, happen.

Also, gee, who would have thought that when you put an AR-15 in a school, you should budget for a safe to keep it in, too?

Dude, this is the NRA's entire plan, you know how much money this would add to the firearms market?

I bet the NRA does.

Remember the NRA is the gun industry lobby. What a stroke of genius to convince people that adding guns everywhere will make us safer.
