      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.

One thing I took from this promo: If your statue resides in the Crypts of Winterfell, you're dead. Unlikely, I know.. but just sayin'.

 

That’s just a random promo. Wouldn’t take too much from it

Finally caught up. Pretty damn good show. So many hot women. My favorite was Robb Stark's wife. Sansa is pretty damn good too. That one wildling chick wasn't bad either.

 

I sort of want to see the White Walkers **** everything up and destroy humanity.

Daenerys is by far the hottest for me, maybe she gets so much screen time we take her for granted. Melisandre is also a very attractive woman, with and without her necklace on.

When I saw her in my daughters favorite show I felt like a dirty old man.  Which might fit, but still...

What are yours?

Without going into a lot of detail, here are some of mine....

1. Red Wedding....As soon as Catlin saw Roose has on his chain mail, i knew something was up, then the stabbing of the preggo.  I was shocked.

2. Tommen jumping out the Window...I knew it was coming, the way they stayed focused on the window when Tommen wasn't in the frame. 

3. Margery's nude scene in season 2? wow...

4. Ramsey being eaten by his own dogs, that was legendary.  The only thing that would have made it better is if one of the Wolves ate his ass up.  

5. Most gratifying scene...Little Fingers "trial", they had us all worked up like Sansa and Arya were against each other and you could just see it developing....then BAM....the look on Littlefingers face when she said how do you plead to these charges.   

 

80 more days, 80 more days....

I was expecting longer run times then those. I had heard each episode was to be feature length and there seems to be a lot to get through yet.

Holy bump from a question a year ago Batman.

 

Natalie Dormer’s breast’s are an international treasure, to be sure.  What makes that scene so incredible though is that it’s not entirely gratuitous.  

 

The Baelish trial reveal was awesome.

Should  we close this thread down and open up a season 9 thread?

Natalie Dormer is amazing. I bet she'd be awesome to just mess around with in bed for an entire weekend and not be bored.

Not going to lie, I forgot about that scene, and now I have to rewatch it, again, and again.

This is the right thread. Its just been so long since season 7, it feels like season 9.

No way too many spoilers. Don’t want to see any photos or trailers 

Honestly, these pictures are just stills of individual characters, very tough to determine anything from them.

Some of the clothing worn, however, is . . . suggestive . . .
