      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.

I understand why Fox has Guiliani on, but no other major network should give him the time of day. It's obvious he is just spewing unmitigated nonsense in order to "muddy the waters" and it's one thing to present it to Fox viewers who will believe anything he says anyway, but by entertaining his drivel on NBC or CNN or wherever else is basically assisting his goal.  

 

I know there was this whole debate among liberals and Dem candidates about whether they should go on Fox and/or other conservative media outlets, but I think the more appropriate question is whether networks/outlets/whatever that want to consider themselves legitimate news sources have got to stop giving people who blatantly lie and spread disinformation a platform to do it.  They are inviting conspiracy nonsense into the mainstream, and while most people can see through it, there will be others will entertain it and then follow Guiliani (and others) back to places like Fox or Rush or Levin to hear more, and then it's over.

Good thing trump likes the Kurds because if that relationship takes a turn for the worse I can predict what their nickname is gonna be.

He was probably coached up to say that our alliance with Turkey has a loger history, because (I assume) Turkey did help us with WW2.  And he just botched his lines.

Narrator: they didn't.

 

But seriously, they stayed neutral until like the last 2 months of the war when it was practically over. No Turks saw combat.....and the Kurds didn't even have a country, they were spread out over Turkey, Syria, and Iran, so like always, I have no ****ing clue what Trump is talking about.

They kinda helped.  Turkey stayed mostly neutral during WWII and didn't join in until nearly the end.  And none of their troops saw combat.

As long as he's alive, it's not a question of if this will happen (him turning on the GOP and unleashing his hoard), it's just when.

Going to need more than docking pay. Good start but some of these folks don't need the money. Sondland doesn't care about his government salary.

Trump will just offer to pay their salaries himself by taking from a children's cancer fund

 

Or Fox News will pay them.  

 

I could see twa trying to look innocent while he points out that a fight between Trump and Congress is good for ratings.

A thousand cuts. All of you.
