      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.

I doubt it will go down this way but it would be supreme if the Presidency created by The Apprentice was brought down by the first winner on that show.

Not at all racist

 

All these folks in the sunken place

Ever wonder why dishonest people record conversations without your knowledge?

Because they're dishonest and they know how to protect themselves.

I think this story is hilarious because it just demonstrates yet again what a ****show this Administration is. And now that "fake news" won't cover it the Tangerine Commander has to resort to personal insults and character assassination as a defense. Too late Don, we already knew Omarosa was a piece of work from the show you love to brag about.

I guess what drives me nuts is how casually these people discuss these issues and how calculated their approach is to "putting it to bed" or "spinning" the story. I know I shouldn't be surprised, but there isn't a hint of surprise in any of their voices, this is just another day at work for them. There's no attack of conscience, no questioning, "Who the hell are we working to elect?" They just operate in the most cynical manner you'd expect in our politics today. And they wonder why we don't believe what candidates and elected officials say, because we know for every instance, every decision these discussions are happening.

I'm imagining Trump on the toilet this morning, door locked, tweeting his tweets, including his one praising Kelly, while simultaneously Kelly is desperately trying to break down the door trying to get to him to take his phone.

 

"Mr. President, open the door!"

"NO!"

*tweets how Kelly did a good job firing Omarosa*

*Kelly shoulders into the door*

"Mr. President, you need to stop tweeting!"

"NEVER!"

*thank you Kanye, very cool*

Oh don't I know it, that poor guy has to be the most popular one at the family reunion.

I wonder why he subjects himself to the abuse.  The money cant be that good. 

 

Everytime he's on TV, the segment ends with him taking umbrage and winding up defending himself.

From October 2017:

I wonder what Trump has on Burnett? Anyhow, since Trump seems to surround himself with people with recording devices in their pockets the truth will likely come out.

 

Good question, but the answer may be "nothing."

 

Rather, that 26 mil Burnett got via some chicanery at the inauguration might have been payment enough.  If, say, 6 mil of that gets distributed elsewhere for costs and hush money, Burnett gets a cool 20 mil.

 

Not bad for suppressing a tape.

Sadly, it doesn't matter if it's true or not. Every rational thinking person already knows he is racist. As shocking as it would be to hear the potus say that, it doesn't change our opinion of him. And his supporters won't care at all. 

 

Maybe, maybe it turns out the vote a little more blue in November and is used on the 2020 campaign against him but I doubt it. He is bulletproof. He can say and do whatever he wants with no consequences.

He is bulletproof at a 42% approval rating. If people get out and vote he is easily defeated.

Easily defeated? No, it's going to be hard to defeat him. 

 

I'll post why I believe that.

I miss the days when the POTUS didn't refer to women as dogs.

 

 

In other news. 

 

 

I'd bet the GOP controlled Congress won't care.

Is that with or without the assistance of an adversarial foreign intelligence service?

It could be that they’re afraid if they don’t punish her, others will do what she did.
