      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.

It was Ohio's method/rules for deregistering people that were found to be constitutional (it was these rules that the left opposed). You just posted an example of a purge that didn't follow those rules.

I can only imagine how scared a lot of locals must be right now, if they’re still there.
 

It’s like the 12 days of Christmas for Putin.  I wonder what we’re getting him next.

 

 

Damn Trump to hell.  We can’t take much more of his ****ng leadership.

What an awesome turn of events. 
Code Pink would be proud of you republicans for how easily you have given up.  Your pacifist stance is bound to create peace by strengthening ALL of our enemies.

Sounds like Bang is missing the neo-cons :kickcan:

At least they had balls.
The one thing you could count on was a military backbone. 
there's a big difference between them and their nutty domestic policies and a traitor / puppet handing our enemies everything they need to control global power.

So you think they will change their vote after they realize the fraud this president is?

**** no they won't. 

Maybe you haven't heard that it's the democrats fault for following impeachment proceedings?
Y'all will get in line and kiss the ring, just like you always do.

Kiss the ring? Obviously you haven't been paying attention to my posts on Trump the last 3 4 years. BTW want to piss off a Trumpster? Point out to him that Trump is just continuing Obama's foreign policy (They will go ape ****). I know I've told Trumpsters that.

I would say “some”, not “most”. I would also say that every negative consequence of a Trump presidency has been entirely predictable. Years of facilitating the moral & intellectual breakdown of the GOP voting base that allowed things to get so bad that a Trump could even be elected is not absolved by some criticism of this one thing... even less so as they are simultaneously telling the American people that there’s a secret deep state shadow government & our intelligence agencies can’t be trusted in an attempt to help that asshole get elected again. Not to mention all of the many, many other harmful consequences of their actions that they’ve been denying & obfuscating on for the last few years... they ought to be taking a good, long look in the mirror. This is on the GOP just as much (in reality, more) than on Trump. If some idiot gives a monkey a gun & the monkey shoots someone, you don’t blame the monkey.

I've been referring to him as Democrat all along (Which I admit is certainly an exaggeration). I usually use it in my arguments with Trumpsters.

GOP criticism of this president has no teeth.

When the rubber meets the road, they ALWAYS get in line.

EVERY time.
Remember when McCain famously turned his thumb down and swung a vote away?
He's dead and trump still won't let it die. 

"Criticism"... based on everything i've seen it's part of the plan to keep people still believing any of this resembles our country until the takeover is complete.

No spine. No way I will believe anything like one is forming now.

 

See, with me it's like so.

Lie to me once, and you're a liar. I will not accept you. Period. You will never be anything else to me but a liar.
Every time.

this is how it works in my personal life for personal reasons. It isn't even a conscious thing. Once i find a lie, i am done with you.

Nothing to me is more disgusting. Nothing. 
And these ****s lie a thousand times a week. Trump lies so much it is mind boggling, and they back ALL of it. They defend and excuse EVERY single BIT.

 

 

Now, as far as politics go, i expect a little. And in some cases, lies are acceptable when they are dealing with national security,, misdirecting enemies, etc. I have even said a few dozen times in here, i put 'lies" and 'unkept campaign promises" on different shelves. 
Mostly. Most of the time i figur a promise can't be kept because once in office, certain info becomes available to show why it cant be done,,, which can't be told to us.

ie; Obama's promise to close gitMo. he got in and they said "Here is why we can't close it". And we did not, and he can't come out and say "look, there really ARE some seriously evil people in here."
Another one i think was used unfairly was Bush 1s "no new taxes"..    then we had a war. We had to pay for it, and to his credit, he tried to.

 

But i will build a wall and make Mexico pay for it is a lie, and was well known to everyone to be one except the dupes.

 

Tired of hearing the Republicans sudden opposition.
Show me. On all of it.

As I contemplate the Trump admin's decision to open up rainforests for development, it's clear that's SUCH a Dem move. Checkmate, libs.
