      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.

NFL.com: Browns waive Manziel (and other Browns related stuff--MET)

Recommended Posts

Didn't he come from money? Sounds like a bad case of affluenza.

I definitely remember his parents getting all pissy when he got in trouble in college for something where he was clearly in the wrong. I can't remember the specific incident.

Clicked on this thread expecting news that Manziel was dead/missing/on the run.

I swear to god I didn't know he was actually missing when I posted this. I was just joking. What a ****ing mess.

GROW THE **** UP!!! Get the help you need, and stop being an immature dumb ****.

He clearly has substance abuse issues. This goes beyond simply growing up at this point.

Ya, its not funny anymore.

Agreed. Just sad at this point. I hope he finds the help he needs soon, and I mean that sincerely. You never wanna see anyone in the NFL get this bad.

Well gee, thanks..... You knew what I meant, that wasn't needed. We're talking about the NFL here. Obviously nobody wants to see anyone in general get as bad as Manziel. We all know that.

This guy is obviously out of control and a piece of ****.

He damages stuff everywhere he goes and refuses to pay up. Real piece of work.

Just another example of talent taking someone to a place that their character couldn't sustain. Scary thing is how much talent he must have to make it as far as he did.

Naa Jimmy Haslam is the one with talent. How the hell can one team screw up that many first round picks in a row?

Taking advice from a homeless man over the consultation of his coaches and scouts seemed like a good idea at the time.

Is Johnny Football dead yet?  That's really the only reason I continue to look in this thread.  Just waiting on the inevitable to be reported.

Liver disease takes awhile. Now if he starts getting popped for drugs, then it might be quick. Either way, it's sad.

Thank ****ing God I never won the lottery or anything. I can't imagine having issues like that and having the money to cover it. I mean a lot of people's bottoms come from losing everything and being flat broke. So what if that isn't a possibility? Look at all the celebs who have died from it over the years. Death is the bottom for them and there's no bouncing back from that.

If I'd have fallen into a couple million dollars when I was 22YO, I probably wouldn't have made it to 30.

I got $15k from an accident settlement when I hit 18 and I think it hadn't even been a month before friends were trying to revive me in a hotel shower. I wouldn't even make it to 25 if I had a couple mil at 22.

In all fairness, Manziel came from big money to begin with. Not that I disagree with your premise, but it doesn't really apply here.

Manziel suspended first 4 games of 2016 season. Which is about as newsworthy as the NFL suspending me for the first 4 games

But there's still a chance that a team picks you up after those 4 games.

oh, absolutely. its around the same chance that I have at getting signed by a team as well. which is about....*does calculations in my head* .01% :lol:

 

wait...as I was typing that I realized you might have meant that as an insult to manziel...correct?

Cnn is showing his suspension on their ticker. Like why is he still news except on TMZ?

 

 

Because it is news when a college player that won the Heisman Trophy and was known as "Johnny Football" falls like this.

 

The sports news is saying this morning that he could face more disciplinary action this season for the domestic violence incident involving his girlfriend. He could face more suspension time after his 4 game suspension is up.

 

Nobody is going to sign Manziel this year.

I'd be shocked if Manziel signs another NFL contract in his life. He's this era's less talented Ryan Leaf. Nobody wants to deal with that ****. And from what I seen, and in my personal experiences, he's no where close to reaching a point where he begins to turn his life around. This might, sadly, be a case where the bottom is death. And there's no coming back from that.
