      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.

Presidential Election :11/3/2020- Trump the Impeached vs Superplanner Lizzie & some other Dems

Recommended Posts

I wonder if Joe Kennedy III is on anyones short list for dark horse VP picks? He was phenomenal at the 2016 DNC, has the bloodline, and would balance a ticket for a candidate if they are a non-New Englander.

VP being a white guy probably means Kamala won the nomination. I think the Dem ticket is going to be mixed gender/mixed race.

Seriously, if the Democrats plan on debating "Socialism" vs. Capitalism during the campaign, they've already lost.  It is basically conceding that they have lost any kind of messaging on the idiocy of "Socialism" even being a part of the dialog.

Such a stark contrast to the mouth breathing idiot currently occupying the White House.

If the NC primary were held tomorrow I'd vote for Warren. 

 

Hopefully once I get some free time I'll do some volunteer work for her campaign.

I love that she's calling it Economic Patriotism. I hope these other democratic candidates learn from her and more so Pete Buttigeig and realize they can co-opt the patriotic and even religious symbolism and buzz words the republicans use to press their voters buttons.

Need to go at these assholes. Not down with meeting them halfway or simply talking about how awful they are

 

She's the only one that seems for real in that regard. If we're going to make iy as a country going forward, that **** had to change

I shudder at thinking about eight solid months of Trump referring to his opponent as Pocahontas. Ugh.

 

 

Oh and don't get me wrong, I'd easily vote for her despite her mistakes regarding that issue.

Damn right. Their minds are hollow. Perfect for ****'in. You can get in there and mess them all up.

If Biden or Sanders don't win the nomination, I wonder who does?

 

Lizzie really should've ran in 2016.I think she would've beaten Hillary and have a fair shot of winning then.

 

I don't think she can beat Trump now.  If Biden is the nominee, she is the best choice for his veep .

I still think Biden will flame out early and Bernie will win the nomination because everyone else will split votes long enough for him to rack up a substantial number of primary/caucus wins.

 

It's not the ideal scenario, but it's the one that I think will happen at this point. Bernie is the only way with a core base of 20-30% of primary voters that aren't voting for anyone but him. I don't think anyone else has that.

I would love Bernie as the nominee, but I think it will be Biden. I think Biden will have to pick Warren as his running mate to appease the progressives, though.

Biden and Harris are both centrist Democrats, Harris less so. Still not paying attention to 2018 candidates and wins. 

 

If Democrats don't win the presidential race and lose the Congress, we as a nation are screwed.

2020 is a long way off, so I don't want to predict anything, but Trump is losing ground, not gaining. I know the Dems want to impeach now, but Pelosi is right to want to drag it out. Let the facts come out slowly so the people don't forget (which they do). Let Trump hang himself on his own petard, impeachment won't get him out of office. Instead, slowly have everyone explain what the Mueller Report means, it is the only way.

 

P.S. Candidates need to stick to policy, let congress hammer away at Trump.

I'm guessing you saw the video of the old woman admitting she had no idea about what the Mueller Report said about Trump? She still saw the light, I understand why they're taking their time. There is a civil war in the GOP, some of the left are afraid that they will head the charge and take credit for usurping Trump. I don't think we're there yet.
