      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.

Oh you wacky Republicans and your moral superiority!

 

Yeah, looks like the only thing worse than being an R, is being a priest.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/14/hundreds-priests-sexually-abused-more-than-thousand-children-pennsylvania-attorney-general-says.html

Quote

Several hundred Roman Catholic priests in Pennsylvania were accused of sexually abusing more than a thousand children, a grand jury report on Tuesday said, in an alleged “cover-up” described as “sophisticated” by the state’s attorney general.

Probably safe to say this involves R's, D's, I's, current, and former priests.

 

Would be beyond ignorant to think it's confined to one party.

Is the President of the United States having beef with the help? I wish he didn't have training wheels. This baton called the American Economy got passed from one player to another, so Trump can play games.

It really must kill Trump (and his MAGAts) that a middle class raised half black kid with THREE funny names has more class than he will ever have.

86 percent of Republicans approve of Trump's policies?  OK, I buy that.

 

Asked directly whether they like Trump as a person...…..66 percent of Republicans say yes.  Heck, 31 percent of everyone in the survey say yes.

 

God, we have a bunch of a-holes in America.

Its says alot about this country that yall actually think that he easily wins again even though hes such a piece of **** human and the worst leader we have ever had in our long and storied history. It says alot. 

Well, it also says a lot that since 2008, the D's have lost, what, over 1,000 seats nationwide (National/State/Local) And, as long as the left keeps hysterically shriekin', the 2018 midterms will go against the grain, gaining seats for the R's in both the Senate, and the House. That's not supposed to happen. But neither was Trump winning the primaries. Then, the Presidency. The left has cried wolf, too loud, and too long. They are the reason Trump was elected. If the keep it up, they will be the reason the midterms go in favor of the R's. And in that scenario, Trump is a lock for 2020. So, please, let the left keep being who they are.

I don't see it Ax. All conventional thought (and recent results) show a massive blue wave is coming in November.

 

When it comes..who do you think the party will blame?

How can anyone possibly honestly justify supporting a piece of **** like Trump who keeps putting horrible people like Omarosa and others that he (supposedly) thought were unqualified, incompetent, corrupt, and impossible to believe, in positions of high power just because they said some nice things to him or begged him for a job.  It really boggles the mind that anyone could continue to support someone so awful and help them destroy our country, unless they're crazy/delusional, in denial/willfully ignorant of what's going on, or evil as ****.  Just something I've been thinking about as Trump and his lackeys attack one of their most recent scandals that they created with their lack of care for this country.

Many people have lost betting that the Dems wont make the kind of mistake twice.

Well, chances are that they're going to nominate a democrat again, so it's a safe bet that whoever that is will be a murdering, kid touching, thieving, terroristic, muslim, drug addict.

I'd say it's more the Republicans have lost their minds since 2008.

 

Huckabee claimed Trump created more jobs for blacks already than Obama did in his whole 8 years. These guys are absolutely shameless liars.

Honestly maybe I should have said Americans have lost their minds. When was the iPhone introduced? 2007?

Its not a presidency, its a cult and he is their unassailable leader. They have stood by despite the fact that he has admitted to sexually assaulting women, he openly supported a child molester for Senate, and has locked children in cages. These are just the clearly obvious "supporting you makes us ****ty human beings" decisions. Its says nothing of the daily forms of corruption, treasonous activities, and policies that hurt the very people who show him blind adoration.

 

To those on that side of the fence, the kool-aid is essential life water at this point. When they follow his final instruction to jump of the bridge, those who remain will be better for it.

To the first part, EG, nobody saw Trump winning the primary. Then, right up until election night, there were still plenty of "experts" predicting a Hillary landslide.

(BTW, For those of us dreading that thought, re-watching videos of the MSM meltdown on election night is almost as good as porn)

 

I also remember in 2004, the narrative was that the D's were fired up to get revenge for the absurd notion that Bush stole the previous election. That didn't work out too well for them then, either.

 

So then, only a fool would believe there's "no chance" of a blue wave. On the other hand, it would be equally foolish to dismiss the possibility of a red wave.

 

If there is a blue wave, Trump will definitely be given the blame. Establishment R's are just a hair shy of the D's, when it comes to TDS.

No, they don't. Except in the land of Unicorns.

 

The only collusion during the election was Hillary and the DNC paying foreign Russian agents for Fairy Dust to throw on Trump.

And the concerted effort to destroy Crazy Bernie.

 

For the record, when I voted, there was no Russian present.

Disregard TDS question -  Trump Derangement Syndrome.   I've been saying that Trump is the Republican version of Obama for a year (politically inept) - if there are Blue waives that will confirm it. (And Trump will deservedly get the blame).

Sexually assaulted women? You talking about the rapist, Slick Willie?

Obama would never tolerate support from a pervert, huh?

https://www.cnn.com/2014/11/23/politics/terry-bean-sex-abuse-charges/index.html

Locked kids in cages, just like Obama.

These are just the clearly obvious "supporting you makes us ****ty human beings" decisions. Its says nothing of the daily forms of corruption, treasonous activities, and policies that hurt the very people who show him blind adoration.

So, at least you seem to admit both sides do it.

 

To those on that side of the fence, the kool-aid is essential life water at this point. When they follow his final instruction to jump of the bridge, those who remain will be better for it.

To those on the other side of the fence, I would simply tell them that reality, is for those of us who can't handle drugs. And, we're tickled pink that they continue to show their true self, everyday, in every comical way.

Not sure at all what you are attempting to convey here. 

 

I was just remarking on what it says about our society that a man so clearly unfit to do his job is a virtual lock in many peoples opinion to get elected for it again for any reason. Doesnt matter what. I think it's a shame. People used to respect us.
