      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.

So minor injury for Samaje, correct?  Can anyone confirm? Return ETA? 

Yeah my heart is telling me he’s going to be a stud this year. I generally try to stay drunk and forget what my head told me last

hmmmm... walking boot, hush orders and bringing in multiple NFL experienced RB's. I'm anticipating bad news Weds on Perine. High ankle or actual structure damage. At least 6 weeks is my concern

not just experienced NFL backs.

but guys who have been out of the league a while.

that cries desperation.

I still think we can get a better running back after final cuts. There will be some good ones.

The RB thing is sort of a non-issue to me now that Guice is out for the year. He was our "luxury" guy. A guy we didn't necessarily "need" but talented enough to potentially take the offense to another level. That's why everyone was excited about him and disappointed when he went down. At this point, it is highly unlikely there will be anyone available that represents an upgrade to Perine or Kelley. And it isn't unreasonable at all to still hold out hope that Perine can be a decent option. If Thompson stays healthy, we will be fine. In that case, we will just need the starting RB to be serviceable. I think we are trying guys out simply to ensure we have enough bodies to make it through these next two games. Maybe if they impress they bump Bibbs and/or Marshall off the roster.

Bringing in Charles or AP isnt looking for a body to get through a few preseason games....

remember when we signed Larry Johnson and Willie Parker before training camp.  Parker didn't last past camp and Johnson played two games.  Signing guys who are done, because you need someone to run the scheme so everyone else can practice doesn't stop these guys from being done

I think it pretty much is just that... now, sure with a guy like AD (to us Sooners he is AD and not AP :)), due to his career you might hold out some hope for capturing some magic, but I bet they are fully planning on Kelley/Perine being 1-2 and just kicking tires on anyone else.

Of course it's desperation. We literally have 2 guys that can play RB that are healthy. You literally can't run practice. We should be looking to ad like 2 guys, at least.

Disagree with the bolded section. He was the piece that was going to get us over teh hump. He was the peice that could have taken us to the playoffs. He was the peice that took one of the weakest areas, and made it legit.

No, but it might work out that way. If Kelley is our starter, then we have a very bad starting RB.

I don't know. I know Gruden has a thing for Kelly, so you might be right. But I don't think you can go into this season and look at these 2 and think you have anything that is even passable. What the running game has showed us is that Kelly is really bad @2.1 ypc. Perine had another fumble. I think you have to look for better, and not just a camp body. I also don't think they would be contacting guys like Peterson and Charles if all they wanted was a camp body. There are plenty of undrafted FA's out there for that.

Skins have not done well getting a decent running back ever since they let Alfred Morris go several years ago and yet he is still being signed by NFL teams.  Also, we let Nate Sudfield go last year. The Eagles really believe he can be a decent quarterback.  Our overall talent evaluation ability still really concerns me as we bring in these old running backs this week for tryouts.   Does our running backs coach know what he is doing?  In fact, how well did Gruden evaluate his offensive coaches during the off season?  We will find out a lot this season.

1st part, Sudfield was cut the final day and we would have put him on the PS.Considering we had Cousins and McCoy ahead of him, that made sense He declined and went to Philly on his own. It's not like we cut him and he cleared wavers and we still didn't resign him.

2nd part, our position coaches don't have final say on who starts. This is 100% on Gruden. Position coaches don't have a lot of say on who is drafted, or brought in via FA either. You're looking to blame the wrong people.

he knows what he's doing in the sense he knows we need more bodies.  As for Sudfeld, the Eagles brought in Christian Hackenberg to compete for the final QB spot so they must not be that

2013- CT 5th round Jamison 7th round

2014- Seastrunk 6th round

2015- Matt Jones 3rd round

2016- Keith Marshall 7th round

2017- Perine 4th round

 

I mean we got CT. And besides Jones we haven't invested in any high round RB's, and we didn't miss on any real good ones to get the guys we got, say except for 15 when we could have had an Ajai instead of Jones.

Where were Phil Taylor and Adonis Alexander last night?  Are they injured?   

 

Yes but Alexander is expected to get a lot of playing time vs Broncos.

just so everyone knows, the Redskins have 6 players on IR so far this year. The 2nd closest team in terms of players on IR are the Titans with...6 players on IR. The next closest after the Titans are the Seahawks with 5 players on IR. After them it's the Steelers with 5 players on IR. No word on whether or not these other teams have owners who are cash-poor, have rehab equipment that is old and not up to date, or if their training staffs are being blamed.

 

Technically, the current amount is 7 players on IR.

Shaun Dion Hamilton .. I thought he was a little banged up. I went searching for an update but didnt see anything. I assume he is full participation.

 

JP Finley - is he the most active up to date redskins twitter media person?

So, what was the Wednesday update on Samaje? 

 

Last thing I heard of him was he was OUT for Friday's game 3, but there was expectation that he'd be up to playing in the final game 4 of ps.

Hopefully we will hear some updates on Quinn and Sims soon. Fingers crossed

More interested in Harris, to be honest. If he's available, then you're looking at a ST problem. If he's not, you need a 4th WR who can play WR.

 

I think we're going to have a @TK thread here soon "Redskins Make Roster Move" saying they IRed Quinn and re-signed Quick to the 53 man roster.  

 

Question will be, who's the punt returner...

I think you're right.  Part of me think  we reach out to Dez as well to see where his head's at.  He's also a lot cheaper after week 1 with the whole 'vested veteran guarantee' deal.  


As far as PR, Stroman / Johnson have both lined up there and I'd love to see us give Stroman a legit shot over a few games to see how he does.
