      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.

Happy to see my favorite qb of the skins “wasnt old enough for anyone before 93” play thursday vs us....also for anyone that was happy he left...this offense has scored twice over 25pts since week 1 2018, if you thought alex smith was better you are a fool if you think case keenum is a bargain you are a fool, we are the only moron organization to let a qb with cousins caliber walk after drafting him without a back up plan since i can remember, the only thing i can think of what he did to hurt this team is in spite of having historically bad defensive play and no running backs he somehow found a way to get us to winning records or 500 and thats probably what kept this loser Allen a part of the franchise....

It'l make it for 4th in a row then!

The only thing that could keep this game close is IF Manusky actually knows what confuses Kirk and employs it based on the fact he went up against him in practice.  

 

I doubt that's actually going to happen.  But, eh, a broken clock is right twice a day.  So you never really know.

Never said they couldn't get a coach.  EVERY team can get a coach.  Only 32 jobs.  But among the ones with potentially multiple options, I doubt they can land the big fishes unless they overpay.

 

Yeah the Herm Edwards types they should be able to land under normal circumstances.  :(

Herm Edwards would be awesome entertainment which is about all the Redskins can hope for.

 

Plus Marvin and Ocho Cinco?

 

How about Rex Ryan as special team coordinator so he can choose the best feet.

 

Perfect!!!

Have you seen Cousins career record against teams with winning records? Did you watch him last year in a must win home game against the Bears? Did you see him here when he needed to beat either the Giants or Panthers at home to clinch the playoffs? 

Let's see how far he takes the Vikes before you call all of the doubters fools....we've seen Kirk be very good before only to see the very bad show up at the worst times.

Heres my issue with the record vs winning teams if you look at

most of the quarterbacks in the league they too have losing records vs winning teams cousins is really bad but that just means vs average and poor teams he wins...im not saying cousins is brees brady or peyton manning...my point is that had we had another GM he woulda seen early on that cousins could play the game and wouldnt have waited to sign him long term no smart or even dumb football team would have waited “to see

more” from a player thats shown you he can play the game at a high level at QB. I also dont care about the game he lost vs the giants for At least we had something to olay for till the last game of the season last year vs the bears would have been tough for any qb who was in a new system bears defense last year was on another level...but hey ill take being one win away from making the playoffs continually rather than the heap of doo doo we have now.

Good people can cure dysfunction. Smug men who show only cursory concern for humanity cannot rinse off their deplorable stench.

I see your points, but, I'm actually one who wanted Cousins gone in large part because of his lack of confidence in himself which makes him not worth the money he gets. He had many chances to put this team on his back and take it to the playoffs and couldn't get it done. He needs a very strong supporting cast and a good coaching staff to succeed. I think Kirk is a good dude and I'm glad for him that he got out of this loser franchise and that he stood up to Bruce. But, last year when he lost in week 17, at home, vs the Bears with playoffs at stake I knew he would lose. Once he clears the big game hurdle maybe he'll prove his worth...if he ever does. I will say this, he is durable, that trait is valuable as well in a starting QB. 

In hindsight, I guess the question is would be rather be where we are right now with our QB situation or would we rather have KC back? Bet I know what Jay Gruden's answer would be.

Can our expert public relations staff under Allen stop giving us updates on how well Alex Smith rehab is going?  Stop the non-sense because he is not

playing this season....we are trying to focus on getting a new coach.   He can go be a backup for the Bengals when he is ready to play football again.

We do not need any more game managers.

Really, their records are similar against winning teams?
