      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.

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.  

Giuliani basically does what Trump does, muddies the water with an endless stream of contradictory bull****. Trump may actually strongly endorse Rudy for that.

I feel like this is likely the gist of it. Otherwise why would they keep sending him out onto the cable news shows to fire off his ****-cannon when every single time he does it he just seems to make things worse? If it were a situation where Rudy basically had knowledge of all the **** Trump did (which is likely true) and the only reason they kept him on the payroll is so they wouldn't have to worry about him spilling the beans they would just keep him shuttered up and out of public view but they keep sending the demented old fool out into the world with us regular humans.

The latter assumes that Trump actually looks around for somebody to hire before he fires somebody.

Wanted: Respected Lawyer who doesn't need to be paid up front (I swear I'm good for it), and is willing to risk their own career to defend everything I've ever done or said regardless of legality or truthfulness.  We repeat. Your career and reputation will be ended.

 

Apply within.

Same could be said for Manafort and Flynn. He's been very hostile towards Cohen, but not the others. Sure there's something to you point.

My wish for the day is all that all these wholly-evil, offshore money laundering, treason-aiding, subhuman filth actually go to Belize and get botfly infestations in their genitals, for starters.

Opinion Napolitano: Giuliani may be slowly dripping information to public to lessen shock of Mueller report

Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s personal attorney who has been under fire for what was seen by some as missteps during recent TV interviews, may be dripping information about Trump to the public to lessen the shock when Special Counsel Robert Mueller releases his final report on his Russian collusion investigation, Andrew Napolitano, Fox News’ senior judicial analyst said.

Rudy finding out that everything and everyone Trump touches is ruined.

I also find it amusing how it seems so many people take these jobs, knowing full well about Trump's past and his personality/mental state (or lack thereof), and yet still somehow manage to be shocked at how bad the job is when they later inevitably leave or are canned.

 

Maybe it's just one of those situations where you know something will be bad when you go into it but until you actually experience it firsthand there's simply no way of understanding just how bad it truly is. Like, I can imagine that having my wang set on fire would be absolutely excruciating, but unless I experienced it I probably couldn't truly fathom the extent of the pain.

 

Then again, I'd never voluntarily set my dick on fire, whereas people still voluntarily work for Trump.

Greed. Power. Fame. Especially for a guy like Ghouliani. For folks like him, once you've been a media darling like he was after 9/11 it's very intoxicating and the feeling of slipping into irrelevance is empty. (This would also apply to the Omarosa types.)

 

For most of the others, I don't know. A call to duty? Enamored with Trump's politics? Resume highlight?
