      ES Coverage: Giants vs Redskins 
       
      12/9/18
       
      DEFEAT!!!
       
      Giants 40 - Redskins 16
       
      Greetings friends, JimmiJo here, and I am joined by my shivering partner, Spaceman Spiff. Together we will bring you this all important NFC East divisional matchup between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.
       
      When I was last with you the Redskins had command of the division and there was optimism to spare. Since, devastating injuries to quarterbacks, linemen, and cornerbacks has left this team losers in 4-of-5 contests.
       
      But there is still everything to play for, and if they can manage a victory today and the Eagles to the same Washington will once again have a share of the lead.
       
      I can dream can't I?
       
      On paper, the future looks grim. A continued collapse will start the questions about the future of personnel and perhaps leadership. Yes, we can certainly point to injuries as the primary reason the team is struggling. But the record earlier in the year was masking some issues with the squad. No real arial threat. An inconsistent running game. And a defense that has been anything but consistent.
       
      But these are questions for another time. Today, it is just two teams looking for a win.
       
      See you at the half.

      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 12 QB Colt McCoy
      o   No. 32 RB Samaje Perine
      o   No. 46 RB Kapri Bibbs
      o   No. 52 LB Ryan Anderson
      o   No. 63 C Demetrius Rhaney
      o   No. 66 G Tony Bergstrom
      o   No. 99 DL Caleb Brantley

      I was happy to see players like Josh Johnson and Byron Marshall in the game. The marquee guys did not earn the right to play following the disastrous first half. It was historically bad.
       
      Never before had the Washington Redskins trailed by as much as the 34-0 deficit they entertained today at the half.
       
      I remarked to one of the writers that in 13-seasons I had never seen this team so outplayed as today. The offense led by Mark Sanchez was throw-up in mouth bad. At no point did you feel like they would or could score.
       
      I tweeted before the game that it is time for Daniel Snyder to replaced head coach Jay Gruden. Yes injuries are the headline. But the offense was poor before the injuries.
       
      No aerial threat and an inconsistent rushing. They only seemed to score 20-points per game.
       
      What they did do well was hold on to the ball. And the defense was a takeover machine the first half of the year.
      But turnovers tend to even out.
       
      So I was more than glad to see those ‘backups’ play. All they did was show they should have been playing in the first half.
       
      Especially Johnson. Take a look at your Redskins’ starter the rest of the way. From his first snap the offense looked different. There was energy. There was life.
       
      And there was threat.
       
      Johnson played with more command, accuracy and imagination than Mark Sanchez. He looked much more the accomplished quarterback.
       
      A word on Josh Doctson. You are an idiot. Without the stupid penalty you are not letting the safety out-position you to make the pick with 5-minutes left.
       
      Following this game, staring at the standings and considering possible scenarios for getting in the playoffs is fools’ gold. It is all about assessing who it worth keeping for next year.
       
      I don’t believe head coach Jay Gruden is going to make the list. Nor should he. He has had nore than enough time to do something here. He had Kirk Cousins’ starting over 3-full seasons.
       
      He had his chance.
       
      I tweeted before the game team owner Daniel Snyder should let Gruden go and bring in Mike McCarthy. Washington Post writer (and friend) Rick Snider made a great counterpoint to that idea:
       
      “Why would McCarthy want to come here? He has better options,” he said.
       
      That sure feels like the truth. And if so, it may explain why Gruden is fast becoming one of the most tenured coaches in the league.
       
      This was my last game for this season. I would like to thank Extremeskins and the team for the opportunity this year. I will see you guys next year.
       
      Let me go on the record now and say I do not think Jay Gruden's position here is secure. Not with the likes of Mike McCarthy available.

Interesting to see them moving away from the guy.

 

The guy they rushed to a few years ago in the draft after we took Brandon Scherff. I thought at the time being that it was a panic move from their FO and a really bad pick.

 

History proves me right.

He has been bad, but cutting him now looks like they are making him a scapegoat for their team issues. 

 

So far they have cut the GM, several coaches, and several players. If they continue to suck who will they blame next?

By the way, since instigating the one million percent unfair and corrupt salary cap penalty against the Redskins and Cowboys, the Giants are 43-59, with one wildcard birth.

 

Both the Redskins and Cowboys have won the division twice in that timespan.

Odell Beckham SR rips NY Giants owner John Mara via instagram:

 

https://giantswire.usatoday.com/2018/10/18/odell-beckham-father-rips-new-york-giants-owner-john-mara/

“Taking aim at a very involved team owner seems foolish in the end.”

 

Not really, after you sign a $90M contract, you can do whatever you like. They can deal with it, or ... do nothing.  They can’t teally cut him.  They can’t teally trade him, yet.  

 

Especially if hecwants out...

 

its great though.  I hope OBJ keeps it up.

The best thing to have happened this weekend was my friend (huge giants fan) texting me after our win against Dallas dating “bruh...how the **** are y’all 4-2!!!” And then after the giants game he texted me saying “I want Eli to retire, our o line sucks, I’m done” ???

 

feels so good after all those years of us being bad and he'd give me endless **** for it.

You're too soft. I want them to get a highish draft pick and have to sell the farm to trade up... for the next Ryan Leaf.

 

After we've swept them en route to a division title.

And now Snacks to Detroit. NYG fire sale is on. Clearly going to sell the farm for a high pick QB in 2019.

With the way they're playing, they won't have to.

They're in line for a top 3 pick if things keep going the way they have been.

 

Funny how just a few years ago the giants were held up as a model franchise for the NFL to follow, with a great FO and everything else. To see them in such disarray, looking at a second consecutive 3 win season.. it warms my heart.. it truly does.

I didn't realize it, but they've been really bad for awhile now.

since 2013 they're 34-53.

 

of course, during that same span the redskins were 35-50-1

Ouch.

and if Barkley runs all over the Redskins like Darkwa and Jacobs did in years past then they'll be the ones laughing

 

Point is the Giants have a LONG history of beating the Redskins in games they should have lost. The Giants stink this year. And the game on Thanksgiving was a lot closer than it should have been last year. I won't take them lightly. They always show up to play against us. Their running backs always run for 100+ against this team. 

 

Don't let Barkley go Sunday. Shut him down like you did to Zeke. You can shut Zeke down, you can shut him down...right?

To compound their problems, they don't have a great amount of cap room for next season. 

 

They haven't made real changes -- just bandaids -- and it's caught up to them.

 

That said, they will probably beat us this weekend just because.

Was wondering why. Looks like Snacks’ snap count has been steadily dropping. Looks like they’re relying more on BJ Hill, their recent draft pick. Both moves (Apple and Snacks) seem weird on the surface, but I don’t think this is a tank move after all.

Just a reminder. John Mara orchestrated a $36m hit on the Redskins, and used that money to bribe other owners to approve the sactions. **** you, ****sucker.

Why are they waiting on going to Lauletta? Eli is clearly not going to be the guy next season and they would have to run the table to just have a shot at making the playoffs right now. Sticking with him boggles the mind.
