      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.

Well this is some impressive revisionist history. She won the popular vote by 4 million votes despite a foreign enemy interfering. 

 

I rhink you also checked every box in the conservative victim card in that one post. :806:

Considering how far in the tank the media was for her, yeah, it was an ass whoopin'.

And without the guaranteed support from the Peoples Republic of California, the "popular vote" shriek is even more meaningless.

Nate said a lot more words than could. The point of the article isnt that nobody knows if Russia’s interference had any impact on the election. His point is that it is impossible to quantify using statistical metrics (which is what 538 does).

We have resident examples of this in @tshile & @TheGreatBuzz. I particularly like their opinions on this kind of stuff. Yall wanna comment? 

Depends on who the Left puts up.  I wont just give away my vote to beat Trump.  But I could be swayed as long as they aren't TOO far left.  A Hillary type without the baggage and fake-ness.

Would you go for a just as fake Hillary type without the fakeness? I ask because I think that's what we are going to have to live with.

The old “I wasn’t accompanied by a Russian at the polls” defense. Man, that’s a new level of stupid. And if you don’t like the response, you’re more than welcome to say things that aren’t stupid.

I would love 1 “defense” of the Trump administration without the words Obama, Hillary, Clinton, deep state, Comey and whatever other state run boogie man is out there. 

I’ve said over and over that Trump won because of Hillary.  Of COURSE that’s the “defense” of Trump.  It’s why people voted for him.

Can we throw out the deep South ans/or Texas support for all GOP candidates too then? Or is it only Dem support you want to discount?

I'm confused how you can just as fake without the fakeness so I can't answer this.

I honestly haven't been paying attention to potential frontrunners because it is so far out.  If you give me a name or two I'll look and give my opinion.

Just going by a recent frontrunner ranking,

 

Sanders, Warren, Biden, Harris.  Would you support any of them?  Or what about my dream pick, Mark Warner? (Run damn you!!)

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).

Trump is so much more than politically inept.

 She got her ass kicked by a completely unqualified Obama in 2008, (because of his race).

Oh FFS. Seriously? You really think he won because he was black and had an odd name?

I think they voted for him based on charisma, anger, and as a general FU to the system. No one had to vote for him because of Hillary, they could have voted Independent or not voted. Really no excuse for it, he showed us who he was and now we have an idiot President making us look like fools.

It was down to him and Cruz (or you can add Rubio if you want to go further back). The base was bent on choosing the nut candidate who told them the same things Limbaugh and Hannity had been telling them for years. And Trump recognized that and gave them what they wanted. Fantasy become reality.

And how does that explain Trump''s current approval rating amongst "Republicans" or how only 32% of them believe that Russia interfered in the election, 71% approve of the way Trump is handling Russia, or how half of "Republican" voters believe that the media is the enemy of the people or how most Republican are in favor of separating immigrant families, or how they endlessly defend the idiot at every turn?

 

Only Trump, Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich received a significant amount of votes. It was a four person race from the start and Trump whooped everyone's ass. Number two was Ted Cruz who is the next biggest piece of **** on stage. I know it's comforting to tell yourself but it's just not true. The GOP base's minds are warped and the Republican Party is now the party of Trump.
