      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.

Moose & Squirrel v Boris & Natasha: what's the deal with the rooskies and trumpland?

Recommended Posts

Rudy admits that Trump Org was in negotiations with Russia over Trump Tower Moscow till the election in November. 

 

Not only is collusion obvious at this point, the voters were lied to time and time again. The entire election is different if the public knows why Trump is explicitly pro-Russia and aligned against our foreign policy doctrine. 

 

The GOP and it’s voters sold this country out, just so they can have a racist in office.

He thought he’d lose and get the tower. 

 

Even Trump overestimated the intelligence of the American electorate.  Amazing since he's based his entire life on exploiting the stupidity and tastelessness of the average schmuck.

one of the many many ways the shutdown helps putin's interests is particularly stunning in our current context...but let me set it up first, as it's just one small but vital aspect re: serious nat'l security problems with this trump shutdown

 

more and more resource/jurisdiction for cyber security concerns have been shifted from nsa/cia/fbi over to homeland the last few years, and especially since trump took office (something flynn discussed he wanted to do before the election and remember rudy is senior exec of a int'l cyber security company)...and of course trumpy has secured way more control over homeland---with help from kelly and nielsen (whatever their thinking/reasons) than he has managed to do with the fbi/doj/intel agencies---tho he obviously tries hard with doj all the time and works via pompeo on the cia/fbi/nsa to wrangle them better---

 

and now, over 1500 of these homeland cyber security personnel are among those furloughed...they're not being asked to work for free, they were sent home....

 

think vlad's a very very happy vamper with this shutdown...oby yes he is....yes he is...(don---and the gop---being an active asset or just the "useful idiot" version are both viable)

Agreed Jumbo. It’s worth pointing out that Trump cares so much about homeland security, that he was negotiating business with a government that was actively attacking our homeland security. He knew they were and he didn’t care. He then lied to people during a national debate to even obfuscate and cover for them. 

 

Shameless traitor backed by a shameless party.

Sounds an awful lot like a bunch of Capital Crimes.

 

wellll... the Lord loves a hangin'
that's why he give us necks...

It tightens up your vocal cords

and loosens up your pecs!

 

So if you are a traitor and guilty to the bone,
go ahead and tag a friend and you won't hang alooooone!

i know there's a zillion (all valid) variations on this theme, but reflect on all the ****-fits the gop had about how our nat'l security/standing was so weakened by obama's "disgraceful apology and bowing tour".... and look now at the same gop  neck-deep up a demented, malevolent, racist, crooked, traitorous (deliberate or incidental to greed/idiocy) elderly orange bunghole that also serves as the permanent residence of the freedom cuckus

not rooskie related, but tied to my previous post,  also remembering how many falwell-flavored evangelicals i've seen over decades, actually, tear at mlk's legacy because of his "sinful moral turpitude" mainly re: infidelity but the same guy/demographic is, well you know the rest....

 

 

i think there are no greater hypocrites in the social arena than this breed of "conservative xtians"

 

they are the kaijus of hypocrites

Usually when somebody messes up as bad as Rudy has, Trump would have fired them a long time ago.

 

Tells me two things. Trump let him in on something really bad and now won't get rid of the guy for fear he'd spill it..... and that the base doesn't care while those opposed already know Rudy is in bad mental shape.

 

My issue is that nobody HAS to put him on TV. It's like Rick Santorium. He lies on CNN all the time. He gets busted for lying. He does his frothy smirk and they have him on next time. I get that having a support of the admin on who isn't going to lie would be an issue. They don't exist. But you keep moving through them until you get one who at least doesn't go balls out on being a piece of ****.

When your defense lawyer has to keep revising the things that he says to the press because he just realized that he accidentally confessed to another crime

Those comments....those replies. Those walkbacks that were worse than the original statement.

 

That article was amazing. Sorry, Rudy. Your Gravestone isn't going to say you lied for Trump. But we're way past remembering your for anything positive post-9/11. You threw that away a long time again.

Ghouliani is drunk

 

Nah he's just an all round ****ty human being. Ok he's prolly a lil drunk.

 

So this week its " Hypothetically possible the President colluded with a hostile foreign power. So what?".

 

Next week it'll be " Yes the President did in fact collude with a hostile foreign power. So what? ".

 

Sadly a third of the country will also agree with Rudy and say "so what?".

How does he have access to emails, tapes, texts etc if they are evidence?

Did I say tapes? I didn't hear any tapes. What are tapes anyway? Are they even a thing you can hear? If they are, I'm sure they're legal.

Oh, wait- I meant VAPES. I'm totally into the new trend of vaping. No, hold on- APES. I'm a big fan of Planet of the APES....

Can't tell if Rudy's purposefully throwing crap up against  the wall to see what sticks or if he's deranged. A part of me thinks his strategy is to obfuscate what is going on to see if the public will buy what he's selling. However, I also think no one could possibly be so dumb! 

 

He once was great at what he did. There's gotta be some method to this madness.

His brain is too slow for a live interview now. So, he starts talking before he processed what he heard. He's saying things he doesn't realize he's saying and PROBABLY doesn't realize what he said until it's said back to him. 

 

Sounds like somebody else he works for right now. So, up the volume and sound more confident to cover for having no idea what you're saying.

I am actually surprised Trump hasent turned on Rudy yet. I would assume that means he knows Rudy knows something that he doesnt want anyone else to know (that he colluded) or its because he seriously cant find anyone else that wants to defend him.
