      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.

Love watching the Vagiants implode.  Could not happen to a better franchise.

I hate them more than I hate the Cowgirls.

I've become the same way over the last few years. Think I might actually hate the Eagles more too. Not sure on that one

In the the latest "What can we do to help the Giants" move, ESPN is reporting that the league office is telling officials to watch for ODB JR's opponents trying to provoke him.  (per ESPN alert)

Are you kidding me? Look, I totally get that a lot of times the officials flag the player who does the retaliation and the guy who instigates often gets off free, however that is usually when it comes to personal fouls and extra curricular activity after the play(s).  So I would like to get some kind of clarification on what "trying to provoke" means.  The entire narrative that ODB JR is just "trying to go about his HOF career and everyone is being a meanie" is such nonsense. Maybe the guy is just mentally weak, or a typical 23 year old playing with grown men and they have found a weakness they can exploit in him and now the NFL is going to arbitrarily step in and say "nah, ODB Jr needs special treatment" Seriously?

^ yeah I agree, that's stupid...if he flips out again and his opponent gets flagged/kicked out instead of him, I'll be pretty angry. This has Mara written all over it.

I can see it now. The ref announcing

" Number XX of the <insert team name>  flagged for making OBJ cry."

 

That will be up there with flagged for "bow and arrow"

Should we cross-reference this to the Conspiracy thread? :ols:

OBJYN is NFL's Biggest CrybabyTM . When the Gnats come to DC it would be great if the team would distribute official NFL's Biggest CrybabyTM crying towels to the fans. They could offer them to OBJYN every time Norman smokes him.

If I actually cared a lot about pro football beyond the Skins I would be upset at this.

Just another classic example of why I should no longer waste my time with it.

Giants, Eagles, Cowgirls.  In that order.  It's weird watching myself care less and less about the Cowboys,  but I do.  They are just so average lately, and haven't done anything extravagent against the Skins in recent years, been a pretty even matchup and no real bad blood on either side.  I even have some cool Dallas fans at work that are intelligent (gasp).  eagles and giants, however, they are the spawn of satan.

And this, among other things, is one of the reasons why the Giants will in no way win the division or make the playoffs.

Oh and in case anything thinks me saying I got an ESPN alert about this was a joke? It's not, I'm serious it was a legit news story from ESPN.

If I'm an opposing coach, the league and/or the refs are gonna have to explain this before a game.  An individual player getting preferential treatment ahead of time for "provocation" is absurd.

I believe it 100%. It's the giants and Mara....the SAME jerk owner who took money from the redskins and cowboys for spending "too much money" in an UNCAPPED YEAR!!!! I wouldn't put it past Mara to do anything stupid like this at all. **** him.

Enough of this crap... The Giants need to be handed a stiff penalty for their actions... They are a dirty team completely out of control... It's no longer about individual fines with these guys. You can't have reporters getting shoved around and Refs getting shoved around from this undisciplined, crap team. We were handed, along with the Cowboys, over $50 million in penalties. The NFL better damn sight take control and show the Giants that the league is not taking it anymore.. (They sure would if it were any other team)

Yo Keenan! That Giants locker room is really handling the losses well. Good call on that bud. Meanwhile those Redskins who point fingers have put together 3 in a row.
