      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.

Jay supposedly wanted a TE in this draft, pickings left are slim.

 

As I mentioned this week I liked what I saw from Alize Mack but I also read he's a head case.  So IMO the next best guy left is Foster Moreau.

 

If they get another receiver, I like Butler hands down but if he's gone, Kelvin Harmon.  My highlight yesterday at receiver was the Steelers (who seem to do no wrong at that spot) taking my guy Diontae Johnson and early in the draft.

Who do you cut to make room for a second rookie WR though?

 

Richardson

McLaurin 

Doctson

Quinn

Davis

Quick

Chesson

Kidsy

McBride

Second rookie

 

have to pare that list down to 5 or 6.

That list doesnt include Cam Sims either

 

As far as I'm concerned, nobody on that list is safe outside of maybe Richardson.  Davis is my feel good, root for story, but that doesn't mean didly between the sidelines.  Everyone on that list could be upgraded.  Chesson, Kidsy, McBride, and even Sims to a point are feel good stories.  Sims flashed in preseason, and Im very interested in seeing what he can do, but at this point I have a hard time saying they can't be upgraded.

Richardson, McLaurin, Doctson, Quinn.  

 

Robert Davis is coming back from major surgery and hasn't proven anything.  Quick is a Jag.  I think they easily have one spot open let alone two.

We do this every year with our receivers, overestimating what we have. Our receiving corp was garbage last year. 

 

Quick, Chesson, McBride, Kidsy are all on the bubble. Even davis off surgery. 

 

Richardson, mclaurin, doctson, Quinn, Butler(or other rookie) + one of the others seems perfectly reasonable.

Dianna was assigned to specifically cover the Redskins in the draft this year.  Most, If not all of her tweets pertaining to the draft are about the Skins this year.

 

Didn't know that.  For some reason thought she was more of a national reporter.

Stanley Morgan is a WR I'm interested in later in the draft.

 

Really sucks that decent OL and TE prospects are all gone.  Those are two major need areas.  I mean...we still don't have a LG on the roster.  What do we do now, re-sign the often injured guys like Lauvao or Cooper again?

Phil Haynes offensive guard from Wake Forest # 74.... I would not be disappointed if we took him. Looks like an upgrade at left guard. I really like Dru samia versatility.

The FO has done a good job, so far. Anyone needed to plug holes on the starting OL is probably going to have to come from other teams' cuts, though. I am a little concerned about that.

I'd love to add a piece like him, but he's already got 2 strikes against him.  I'd be concerned about what the long term would hold for him.  It looks like his charges aren't going to be resolved any time soon, as the best I could find was a 'pre trial hearing' that was supposed to take place on April 18 in New Mexico, and the charges is Texas are still 'pending.'

 

I would believe that if anyone drafts him, or signs him, he's instantly placed on the exempt list until these legal issues are resolved.  Maybe someone takes a late round flier on him, but right now i'd guess he's borderline radioactive.

I think they either go TE - Nauta, Moreau or OL Jordan, Samia Gaillard or Forbes with the first pick

I like Samia and Nauta first.

I could see them take Haskins C Jordan who can play G/C

 

Hope Butler is gone when the Skins pick or I will really want him. Feel like a couple of WR's and QB,s might go quickly.

Just saw that McGinn's top 100 (from scout sources) has been so far the most accurate among all the draft geeks lists as to what's happened so far-- at least among the well known ones.  Then if I recall it was Zeirlein and then McShay.

Good point...i think late round flyer might be the way to go. I wouldn't mind seeing us take a shot of him with one of our 7th round picks. His talent is inarguable though

Don't forget that these charges are domestic violence, and the NFL is very.... involved when it comes to those sort of things.  

 

I don't want to get into a debate about him so i'm going to be generic when i say this, but regardless of the outcome, there will be a PR hit to whatever team decides to pick him up... if he ever actually suits up.  A team like ours likely will have a bigger backlash than most.

I respect your opinion and even when we differ, your position is always very well thought out and supported. We have terrible receivers. Our top 4 receivers are probably all number 3 receiver quality and everyone behind that is riding the bench behind the 3 JAG's. And Richardson is always hurt. If we had more picks, I'd love to see us add Hakeem Butler and Turpin.

I agree that we have lousy receivers who are expendable, but the problem is a 4th round rookie can have way higher upside than guys above him, but still struggle to make the team because of his natural unreliability.  Usually hard to keep two rookies who aren't ready to go year one.  McLaurin would be safe in the short term because of his ST ability.  But Butler + McLaurin + Doctson + Quinn + Richardson is one of the most alarmingly inexperienced groups in the league.

IMO Butler will be gone before the Skins select. He is the best player available. I would love it if they add Turpin but would rather a few other needs are addressed with the next couple of picks. G, ILB, TE and DB.

If we were to get Butler, I think you have to carry 6 receivers and then spend some money to get an experienced veteran who can be counted on, and then basically red shirt Butler for the year as one of your inactives.

 

I love Butler.  Can't believe he's fallen this far.  And I am a BPA guy, I just worry about carrying two rookies in a single position group, no matter what group it is.
