      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.

The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

Could you imagine if we win these next 2 games?  It could set this team back for who knows how long.  Somehow Bruce and Dan will find some success in this season if they beat Kirk and Shanny so not only do we need to lose the next 2 weeks but I think if we get pummled it will go along way in sealing Bruce's fate and making Dan realize its time to move on.

I don't think we have to worry about winning.... we suck

 

The Dolphins could have won that game if they didn't get a call telling them not to convert... They didn't want to win.

 

We just suck

No doubt it looks bleak but our team is ridiculous, over the years we beat teams we shouldn't and lose to teams we should have beaten.

 

I think the Niners are the best team in the NFL right now but if somehow we pull this game off it will make that Vikings game pretty interesting.

No, I can not.

 

That said, life is cruel for a 'woke' Skins fan.  Perhaps the defense wakes up, as Jimmy G hasn't been anything to write home about and Kirk has yet to shed the stigma that he folds under pressure in 'big' games under the lights.  The game isn't really 'big' for the Vikings, but it's gotta be for Kirk whether he admits it or not.

I agree with you, that being embarrassed two weeks in a row by these guys has potential to push Dan over the edge, even if he's currently not thinking about moving on from Bruce.

After reading that ringer article, I'd argue that....

 

I'd argue that Bruce Allen just might be the right choice for Kindergarten Ninja Part 2.

Right now he's 267-123 all time.

If he loses the next 378 he'll be 267-501 (and he'll 90 years old btw).

 

That's 768 games and .347

 

So you are assuming that Bruce can't get to .347 soon? He's close!

 

I mean, without "Kurt" he'd probably already be there and look at who he (or Dan) stapled himself too now...

 

And I mean, Belichick has to lose over 300 games in a row to match Bruce's incompetence, who cares how many past 300 this requires because it'll never happen. It's just funny thinking about it, hahaha.

 

It also means that Bruce would have to win 300+ in a row to match Belichick, and probably close to that number to match Gibbs1 as well.

 

This is how ****ing moronic our team owner is.

I will meet you at Redskins park and let you sodomize me with all three Lombardi trophies if we win either of those games.

Well, you can breathe a sigh of relief, but just so you know I would have been gentle. 🤣

Yeah, bummer. At least it gave me some sort of incentive to cheer for the Skins. Oh well, maybe next week.

This douche continues to hide from the media.

Do you expect anything else from him?  If he popped his head out for the media, it would only be to blame others for this anyway, so there is no point.  Better to not see his arrogant face and smell his stale Coors breath.

Disagree, it's even easier to keep the spotlight and negativity on him if he were forced to take questions live every week, you know Snyder watches that. But no organization really does that, so.

Spruce Alglin (who refused to say Kirk Cousins name properly), this fake GM, is a real team architect right that had produced this mess on the field,  look at what his leadership has gotten us, a real price of stupid work.  Spruce is the real reason for the failures of the Redskins ever since he came here.   A man that played on the sentimentality of a clubs love of his father to get a job he did not deserve, to ride on the coattail of his father name, what a joke of a person and crazy screwed up GM!! 
 

How can Daniel Snyder  really be a good business man when he keeps this clown as a GM.  Does Spruce Alglin have a Jedi wave as he passes his hand in from of Snyder saying I’m really a excellent GM as Daniel S. Repeated the phrase???

 

the Redskins who were at least competitive before he came are now one of the few team know as a cellar dwellers of the NFL.

 

When will DS wake up and smell all the feces Spruce has smeared all over the hallowed walls of our team and fire Spruce Alglin???

Jay Gruden talks Redskins regrets, Dwayne Haskins, and injuries

 

OCTOBER 18, 2019

 

https://thefandc.radio.com/jay-gruden-redskins-regrets-dwayne-haskins-injuries

 

"I don't think any coach unless you're the coach-GM you're gonna get your own way all the time," Gruden told 106.7 The Fan. "I think you have to communicate and at the end of the day make the decision that is best for the football team and whether they're your decisions or Bruce's or the personnel department you have to go with it and live with it and do the best you can with the people that you have."

 

In the end he did say the Redskins is a great organization to work for. So there is that.

He did. Then when he listed the reasons he started with “they pay you well”.🤣
