      ES Coverage: Giants vs Redskins 
       
      12/9/18
       
      DEFEAT!!!
       
      Giants 40 - Redskins 16
       
      Greetings friends, JimmiJo here, and I am joined by my shivering partner, Spaceman Spiff. Together we will bring you this all important NFC East divisional matchup between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants.
       
      When I was last with you the Redskins had command of the division and there was optimism to spare. Since, devastating injuries to quarterbacks, linemen, and cornerbacks has left this team losers in 4-of-5 contests.
       
      But there is still everything to play for, and if they can manage a victory today and the Eagles to the same Washington will once again have a share of the lead.
       
      I can dream can't I?
       
      On paper, the future looks grim. A continued collapse will start the questions about the future of personnel and perhaps leadership. Yes, we can certainly point to injuries as the primary reason the team is struggling. But the record earlier in the year was masking some issues with the squad. No real arial threat. An inconsistent running game. And a defense that has been anything but consistent.
       
      But these are questions for another time. Today, it is just two teams looking for a win.
       
      See you at the half.

      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 12 QB Colt McCoy
      o   No. 32 RB Samaje Perine
      o   No. 46 RB Kapri Bibbs
      o   No. 52 LB Ryan Anderson
      o   No. 63 C Demetrius Rhaney
      o   No. 66 G Tony Bergstrom
      o   No. 99 DL Caleb Brantley

      I was happy to see players like Josh Johnson and Byron Marshall in the game. The marquee guys did not earn the right to play following the disastrous first half. It was historically bad.
       
      Never before had the Washington Redskins trailed by as much as the 34-0 deficit they entertained today at the half.
       
      I remarked to one of the writers that in 13-seasons I had never seen this team so outplayed as today. The offense led by Mark Sanchez was throw-up in mouth bad. At no point did you feel like they would or could score.
       
      I tweeted before the game that it is time for Daniel Snyder to replaced head coach Jay Gruden. Yes injuries are the headline. But the offense was poor before the injuries.
       
      No aerial threat and an inconsistent rushing. They only seemed to score 20-points per game.
       
      What they did do well was hold on to the ball. And the defense was a takeover machine the first half of the year.
      But turnovers tend to even out.
       
      So I was more than glad to see those ‘backups’ play. All they did was show they should have been playing in the first half.
       
      Especially Johnson. Take a look at your Redskins’ starter the rest of the way. From his first snap the offense looked different. There was energy. There was life.
       
      And there was threat.
       
      Johnson played with more command, accuracy and imagination than Mark Sanchez. He looked much more the accomplished quarterback.
       
      A word on Josh Doctson. You are an idiot. Without the stupid penalty you are not letting the safety out-position you to make the pick with 5-minutes left.
       
      Following this game, staring at the standings and considering possible scenarios for getting in the playoffs is fools’ gold. It is all about assessing who it worth keeping for next year.
       
      I don’t believe head coach Jay Gruden is going to make the list. Nor should he. He has had nore than enough time to do something here. He had Kirk Cousins’ starting over 3-full seasons.
       
      He had his chance.
       
      I tweeted before the game team owner Daniel Snyder should let Gruden go and bring in Mike McCarthy. Washington Post writer (and friend) Rick Snider made a great counterpoint to that idea:
       
      “Why would McCarthy want to come here? He has better options,” he said.
       
      That sure feels like the truth. And if so, it may explain why Gruden is fast becoming one of the most tenured coaches in the league.
       
      This was my last game for this season. I would like to thank Extremeskins and the team for the opportunity this year. I will see you guys next year.
       
      Let me go on the record now and say I do not think Jay Gruden's position here is secure. Not with the likes of Mike McCarthy available.

If you include Quinn and Marshall who we removed from IR, we've had a total of 15 players on IR this year.

But that's not even the craziest thing.

Of those 15 players on IR : 14 are offensive, and only 1 is defensive.

The other sad thing is, there's still 6 games left

Does that include Arie? 

 

Trying to think of the impact players on offense on IR:

 

Scherff, Luavao (I guess?), Richardson, Quinn and Marshall (returned from IR), who else?

 

crowder and CT are not on IR...

We should be able to overcome injuries to guys like:

Kouandjio

Garner

Kelley

Catalina

Christian 

Sims 

 

Those are back end roster type of guys. So it's no big deal.

 

The only injuries that are a real problem this year are Lauvao and Scherff. Others are no big deal. Alex wasn't playing great in any way so I rank his injury as less prejudiciable to us than both.

@Wildbunny exactly.

 

Actually, the bigger injuries have been to guys who aren’t on IR, like Trent, Crowder and CT.

 

However, as I said before the season, these guys are always hurt so it’s foolish to think they won’t be hurt this year and count on them.

 

The CT injury, however, (the first run injury) was most maddening becaus it came in garbage time and Jay called a route for CT over the middle and then Alex hung him out to dry.

 

if there ever was a microcosm of the entire season, it’s that play.  Self inflicted wounds and bad QB play.

What exactly happened to Jamison Crowder's ankle?  He must have sprained the everloving crap out of it, he's been gone 7 weeks.  I can't remember what play it happened, or maybe it was during practice.

According to this, Moses could be out for a while.

He's suddenly missing key parts of his body.

Yea, I don't know why the tweet didn't embed, so you could see it right away.

First time that's happened to me, and I posted the tweet the way I always do.

I did not purposely hide it, I'll say that for sure ! In fact, I was in the process of taking a screenshot instead, so

people wouldn't freak out too much.

Also, instead of searching twitter, you can just copy/paste the url, it would have been much quicker.

Not sure besides a sprained ankle. He hurt it during the Saints game. 

 

The first MRI didn't show anything so it didn't seem serious, but he had a second MRI before the Houston game that showed more damage. Seems like he's headed to maybe surgery and IR but the team still seems confident he'll recover.

Annnndddddddd Trey Quinn placed back on IR, so his season is over. Dunbar also done for the season, being placed on IR. 

 

 

Did Dunbar re-aggrivate it or is this the same nerve issue he's been dealing with for over a month?

I’m guessing the same thing he’s been dealing with for over a month, but i dont know. I’m sure Gruden will say during his press conference after practice

The Quinn thing disappoints me.  He flashed as a capable guy in limited action, but he barely played and got significant injuries twice. 

 

Makes that Crowder decision trickier if Quinn isnt gonna be durable enough to take the spot in the slot and at PR.

That epitomizes how bad it's been - when the same player hits ER twice in the same season.

Is that a record? It would have to have at least tied the record. The Redskins just need to poach other teams practice squads and get the best players they can.

I think if we still had a legit shot to make the playoffs some of these guys wouldn’t be going to ir.. jay sees the writing on the wall...

We stil do, we have two very winnable games. Crowder being back in the lineup is probably why Quinn is going back on IR. And Dunbar, well that injury just wasn’t going to get any better no matter what. I don’t think this is Gruden waving the white flag just cause we’re 6-6 and 1 win Vs the giants (and a cowboys loss Sunday) away from a 3 way tie in the division. 

 

Hes not like our fans who are throwing in the towel already 😂
