      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.

Won't matter if Fox News stays their course.

Get tires of people saying the facts will get to the people, no it won't.  For half the country fox either finds a spin for what's going on or if they can't they just act like it didnt happen and not even make an article about it.  Pelosi is out smarting herself.

I'm torn, all they would do is tear each other apart trying to prove who cares about the earth more.  Any Democrats is going to be a heel turn in climate policy for this country.

That'll happen with almost any topic.  I'm afraid they will end up beating each other up too much and end up with a mediocre candidate that is badly damaged.

If you keep reading regularly you don't need to wait for their flash card comments on tv.  The only person with the balls to pass a New Green Deal like we need is Bernie, everyone else is just better then we are currently doing.

I'm curious where all those 1% candidates are with signatures and stuff needed to even get on the debates.  There's no way in hell DNC is putting 23 on stage at the same time, it doesn't even make logistical sense.

Think Harris needs more tv time.  The fact Biden sucked the black vote from her like that is ridiculous, he's done nothing to earn it outside being Obamas VP.

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.

Bernie will get crushed.  If Biden isn't the nominee then Warren or Harris should nominee.  No, I don't think either will beat Trump but they will do far better than Sanders. That 20 to 30% that supports him in the Democrat primaries; won't be enough to win a national election.  Bernie may bring in his core supporters but he's going to lose alot of Dems will not vote for him.

A lot of black people/friends that I've spoken to here in NC where I live don't care for her based off of her record when she was a prosecutor.  That's the issue that always comes up.  It seems like they feel they can't trust her maybe? I'm not sure, but according to the people I've had conversations with, it doesn't seem like she'd easily get the black vote here. They seem to like Bernie better than her.

Sanders is already attacking Democrat candidates. Just like he did with Clinton. It's one of the reasons I don't like him.

He barely attacked Hillary Clinton, and it was mostly for her trade policy and voting for the War in Iraq. If anything, he should have attacked her more because he was the underdog in a race stacked against him. He never did.

 

There is nothing wrong with Dems attacking each other during the primaries. That's how you differentiate yourself from your opponents.

This is what people said about Trump in 2016.

Yeah, Kamala never had the black vote. Her record as Cali AG cost her.

I told y'all. That Economic Patriotism plan title is Conservative cat-nip, but even I was surprised to read about how quickly Tucker embraced it. Trump is a fake populist. With the right branding and the real substance behind it, Elizabeth Warren's plans will resonate with that base. I just hope all that can overcome the superficial wonkiness people characterize her with when they don't know **** about her.

Now we need a Freedom plan and a Don't Tread on Me plan and a Pro-Life Gun Control Plan to just twist em all up into knots.

Give it 5 months. If Warren is rising in the polls and has a clear shot at clinching the nomination, Tucker is going to be calling her pocahontas every night.

Nope, not till after she wins the nomination. :ols:

I'd pump the breaks on the "OMG Tucker praises Warren" hype.  He was praising the ideas more than any actual policy.  Basically, "She has a good message"
