      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.

Stating the facts is not indicting, nor accusing.

 

If he had more evidence than what is in the report you might have a point, 

 

The fact is he provided the information he gathered, if you see a crime in it it is up to congress to pursue  formal charges.

 

 

He said, rapidly moving the goalpost from "There's no crime because Mueller didn't file charges" to "There's no crime because Congress hasn't impeached him (yet)"

This isnt personal, so I dont want you to think it is. But if you ever want anyone to have respect for you, you have to know when you are beat. You are beat, Twa. This is a losing argument.

So what are the chances Congress can impeach Barr as well because that dude did his best to cloud the facts and has been acting as Trump's defense lawyer from the jump.

That goalpost has been in place since the report was released.

 

If you see a crime in the information provided then you need to pursue it.

 

Relying on that Mueller could not indict to say it does indict is speculative and of no use if you do not act.

So......would Democrats requesting Mueller (and others via subpoenas) to testify, and requesting documents related to the investigation to be turned over so they can further look into questions the report may have raised considered "pursuing it?"

Mueller just told you he gave you all he had....if you don't believe him feel free to pursue him.

Congress can request whatever it desires, though opening impeachment hearings would be the best way IF they see something worth pursuing.(the courts give more weight in that case).

 

The Dem leadership lacks the courage of it's stated convictions otherwise.

 Obviously you didn't listen to Robert Mueller.  Or if you did, you did not understand what he said.

Obviously you didn't unless you think they said he committed a crime in the report.

 

If ya do ya might be better served calling Nancy.

Mueller investigation ultimately was a huge wast of time. He basically said “we didn’t come to a conclusion on whether or not he committed a crime”

 

 

That doesn’t mean he’s innocent.

that doesn’t mean he’s guilty.

 

it means mueller and his team were ineffective. I understand if the AG ties your hand you cannot charge the president even if you think you should, but it doesn’t stop you from rendering an opinion on whether or not a crime was committed.

 

This is another display of the ineffectiveness of a modern democracy.

 

Russia is laughing at us. And it isn’t all on Trump.

^^^ That is just stupid.  800 former federal prosecutors, both Democratic and Republican disagree with you, along with anybody with half a brain who has read the Mueller Report and isn't hopelessly blinded by partisanship.

Here is what mueller said;

 

If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mr. Mueller said, reading from prepared notes behind a lectern at the Justice Department. “We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime.”

A better "fix":

 

Special prosecutor: This is the gun Trump used.  Here's his purchase receipt.  The gun has his fingerprints on it.  Here are the witnesses who watched him shoot the victim, in the middle of 5th Avenue.  But because he's the President, I cannot charge him with a crime.

 

Trump and his idiot followers: Total exoneration!

No. That isn’t what he said. This is what he said:

He also said that he COULDNT because the investigation was obstructed. And he listed the ways. 

 

No matter how hard you try, you can’t make me think you are actually this stupid. I know you can read.
