      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.

Pointing out, I believe Texas was settled by white folks because Mexico offered to give them free land.

Want to see who loves bombs more? Offer to cut military spending and see which side howls the most.

Get out of here with your false equivalency garbage.

Well the Mexicans weren't really in Texas when they were giving it away either.

The Comanches and such kept them thinned out. :kickcan:

Yeah, it's a lot like copyright law, you need to defend your own copyrights.

But that hasn't stopped since then either, now they just sue you and force you to allow them to bury 30" pipelines across your farms.

That go for years without inspections and then explode in the middle of the night killing people and destroying homes as the residents run for their lives with their clothes melting to their skin.

I've actually had this idea in my head for a while, maybe a time travel story.  

 

In my story, the Indians who (supposedly) sold Manhatten island to the white folks for $18 worth of beads?  

 

He didn't own it.  He sold them the Brooklyn Bridge, 300 years before it was even built.  Wend home to the wife and spent the rest of his life laughing about what he got those suckers to pay him.

Funny how @twalaughs at this and yet it actually happened 10 miles from my house...literally this exact scene...to the letter.

This is your GOP, they don't give a **** about people, it's profits and military they care about. If the rich are hurting then the government opens her legs wide, if it's the average person then the whore house is closed for business. Oh, you have some land that a wealthy developer can make money from? Well, now the government is against you taking away your right to your own land, making you a serf to the corporate greed.

Nothing has changed.

Just checking in to see how many residents in Mississippi (Do I have the correct state?) have sent their teenagers or young adult children to the poultry processing plant for work.  Now that the undocumented folks have been cleared out, plenty of opportunity, yeah?

You ain't very bright are ya?

I know the people who watched their house melting as they tried to escape, and who had their clothes melted to their skin. There are THREE of these 30" lines that run through my county and they are all shut down because of the lack of inspections.

So yeah...it distresses me.

Jackass.

Nothing like walking outside in the middle of the night and seeing a column of flame several hundred feet in the air and knowing you know people who live in that area. Nothing like seeing a 15' deep crater from the massive explosion.

there were 150 or so showed up at the job fairs for the chicken places.

 

ASF, as long as the gas is needed there will be pipelines (three in a county is not many) and the pro solar/wind and anti-nuclear/coal plants folk make it needed more than ever.

 

if you are looking for sympathy you might try posting in a better thread and manner.

Oh, I'm sorry, did I say three, what I meant was that there are three in the county where the line exploded.

Here's a look at my county.

But typical GOPer response, **** the dead, **** the wounded, just as long as the spice flows, you'll steal and pollute the land until there's nothing left but your profit.

Nothing has changed except the names of the parties, you're still the same apologists who revoked the 40 acres and a mule, the same ones who shrunk the reservations, the same ones who want to strip our national parks and preserves. All for money.

You're also the party that hired those 680 undocumented workers and offered them ZERO protections for the job you needed done.

The GOP's hands are dripping with injustice.

This is the same face the GOP makes while eating the chicken processed by undocumented workers in their factories as they get ready to hire a new round of undocumented workers to fill the void.

At first the laughing face asked why I was concerned about a pipeline explosion that happened 10 miles away, then I told the laughing face and then he didn't want to talk about it any more. The same is true for nearly every discussion with laughing face, when it gets real he gets fake.
