      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.

That would be OP + 1. When I started that fantasy thread it was based on what I thought would happen but I didn't want you all to call me crazy (since it was back in Aug) so I did the fantasy bit instead. :D

 

Obviously I thought Alex would be a tad bit better than Kirk. Hoping by having some weapons back on the offence along with Quinn it could still happen. :)

 

 

Fantasy thread?? Which one was that ?

And the OP (actually) may be the only sane one here, when seen from a certain point of view. Truth be told. 

 

Because the mafia connection to the NFL has long since been well established. And the manipulation of the game, by the underwriters of the NFL has irretrievably changed the game both stylistically from a visual standpoint and also too fundamentally from a rules perspective. That's not been by accident. 

 

The referees insinuating themselves back into controlling the game most recently with rouging the passer penalties -- 2018 edition, is just a fair reminder of how the game can be easily manipulated at any given moment. 

 

Neither too is the estimated 2.3 billion dollars, PER YEAR, thanks to legalized gambling, that the gambling infrastructure, mafia, is estimated to underwrite the NFL for their operational funds, alongside the TV broadcast rights companies. Underwriters are the ones who set the conditions to be met for funding. That's how mortgages works. 

 

Any further dialogue on the subject probably should stay off public. ?

 

Was today's embarrassing loss, a result of it being rigged that way ?

Yes. They don't want the Redskins to get to the SB. Alex Smith's play will tarnish the NFL brand in front of the whole World watching.

Well if I'm not mistaken, apparently both Moses and Reed got into such heated arguments with the refs, that they were flagged for their verbal actions alone, huh ?

GTFOOH! HTF are the Redskins going to the SB with no offensive line, a poor QB, a poor WR corp and a terrible offensive coordinator?

Don't forget how bad the defense looks against good teams.

Noted.

The Redskins are probably one of the better of the worst teams in the league, I'll give them that. Another worst team beat the **** out of them today.

The best defense is an offense that can sustain drives with this team. If that doesn't happen, this team loses. Point blank.

The defense is not good against a dynamic offense. Its clearly evident now.

This offense is archaic and doesn't have a dynamic player (outside of AP) to speak of. And the ones that could be are injured most of the time. So there is no threat for defenses to prepare for.

You look at the Falcons and they are loaded with skill players that make plays. Very easy for an average QB like Ryan to get the ball to.

This (below average so far) QB has nothing to throw to with confidence. This is Grudens fault for being so ****ing high on a pack 12 bust, not making a move at the trade deadline or when Gordon became available. At this point, I don't give a **** about what anyone thinks about a guys character. **** all that nice ****....this is football. What's the worst that can happen?

 

Right now, every single one of the skill players are bamas!!! but from the wrong ****ing school.

I remember Moses getting penalized (I think it was during the injury, on the play right after doctsons spinning the football penalty?) but I don’t remember reed getting penalized for anything. Is that what happened? ?

I didn't witness the Reed thing, but I heard that it was the reason Gruden benched him, to cool him off.

I was wondering why he was sitting on the bench while the offense was out there, I figured he got hurt too.

The Patriots will be playing the Saints. The Redskins may make the playoffs by default. But they'll be bounced in embarrassing fashion at home against the Vikings or the Falcons. They ****ed this season up by believing they are set at the WR positions. The best prediction is that Gruden will be gone after this season or Doug will kick Gruden out of the draft room and the FA dealings. How in the **** do you pass on Thomas, Gordon and Tate and end up with Floyd?

For all you who talk about Gordon and Tate being a character problem, WTF is Floyd!!!? I tell you what he ain't......a ****ing play maker!!!

@SkinsDude1988

 

 

So what are your thoughts now? You think Sanchez was that wild card that was needed for the Skins to play the Pats in this year's SB?
