      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
       
      JimmiJo
       
      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.

Official Extremeskins Tailgate 10/14/2018 vs Panthers

OFFICIAL EXTREMESKINS TAILGATE

[Oct 14, 2018]

 

WAS.png.a14f14ca199ed03f4d9ec0a19869586b.png  VS  CAR.png.a6e83159dd5314ae80e6d1329d1d65a7.png


 

Washington Redskins LXXXVI: A New Hope

  

It is another year of Redskins football boys and girls, and with it comes new hopes and new dreams. We have a new veteran QB in Alex Smith, and a legendary running back in Adrian Peterson. Our greatest hope is in our youngsters who hopefully take a big step forward this year and start establishing themselves as stars in this game. We are all anxious to see the identity of our team this year and to see if we will be able to compete well with our division foes. Throughout the years this team has had its ups and downs, but one thing has remained constant: our tailgate. Every year our tailgate proves itself to be one of the best not only in the Fedex parking lot, but across the NFL as well. That is all due to you all who contribute great things and make this group not just seem like a bunch of friends, but a true family. I have been waiting impatiently to be with my Extremeskins Tailgate family all year. Lets make this year's tailgate's the best yet!!!.

WHAT IS IT ?

 

The Extremeskins Tailgate has become an institution at Fedex Field, and it is because of all the members involved. The dedication, hard work and investments by folks year in and year out is second to none. This tailgate is getting bigger every year and is well respected because of our passion, our friendly welcoming environment and the charity we do. The Redskins organization has recognized our contributions and how we present ourselves and because of that, has recognized our tailgate as official Redskins Fan Captains. Let's continue to do our best as one of the best tailgates at Fedex Field!

 

Once again, the Extremeskins Tailgate will have containers available for the Extremeskins Charity Funds. There will be two containers. One container will be for pop tabs (the little tabs on the top of aluminum beer and soda cans)... this is to benefit the Ronald McDonald House. If you drink a beer or coke, don't forget to take off the tab and put it in the container before throwing away!!! The other container will be for monetary donations, and will be for the Official Extremeskins Charity selected this year: Abby's Army. At the end of the year, 100% of the money collected will be submitted to the charity. Please check the charity threads! Please donate what you can, there are needy folks out there that can use our help!

I am sure most of you are familiar with our tailgate threads, but I like to emphasize that we try to be as organized as we possibly can (yes it is like trying to herd cats). Before you start asking questions, please read this entire post, as it most likely will answer any questions you have. At the bottom of this post you will see 2 sections: “Needed Items” and “Posted Items”. We are a Potluck Style tailgate, so we ask that if you plan on attending, please check both sections to see what we need and what people are bringing. If you are trying to decide what is best to bring, food and drinks are the best items. I will keep the lists updated as frequently as I can.

 

 

WHEN IS IT ?

 

October 14th, 8:00 am - 12:30 pm.

 

Thanks to our home in the RedZone Lot, we get an additional hour of tailgate time that the other lots do not (other lots only have 4 hours). We typically start packing up the tailgate around 30 minutes before the game, but don’t worry, there are still plenty of people to hang around with to chat about the game.

 

Many of us arrive early and pre-tailgate or just chat it up on the RedZone Lot entry road (see “Where Is It” section) before the parking lot opens… you can usually find a bunch of us at the very front of the line.

 

Post-game tailgate times vary... normally it is as soon as everyone gets back out to the lots. End time varies based upon the mood of the fans and the time of the game.

 

 

WHERE IS IT ?

 

We are located in the new RedZone Lot.

 

Specifically we are located at RZ30 / B30 (pole marker) at the corner of the lot closest to the stadium (along Hill Oaks Rd). You will see our yellow jeep there, with flags flying including a black flag with our “X” logo.

If you have parking passes for the RedZone Lot, and this is your first time, it can be a little difficult finding the entry road. If you do a Google Maps search for: “Redzone parking”, you will see where the entry road is.

 

Here are the directions per the Redskins (Belle Haven Drive):

 

  • From Northern Virginia, Howard, Montgomery and Anne Arundel Counties: Take I-495/I-95 to Exit 19 (US Route 50 East). Once travelling east take Exit 8 for MD-704. Turn left at the light and continue on MD-704 for 4 miles. Turn left onto Belle Haven Drive, then turn left onto Sheriff Rd. The entrance to the RedZone lot will be on your right in 1/2 mile.

 

  • From Washington DC: US Route 50 East to Exit 8 for MD-704. Turn left at the light and continue on MD-704 for 4 miles. Turn left onto Belle Haven Drive, then turn left onto Sheriff Rd. The entrance to the RedZone lot will be on your right in 1/2 mile.

 

I prefer this route (from 495):

 

 - Take exit 17B to merge onto MD-202 W/Landover Rd toward Bladensburg

 - At the first light, turn left onto Brightseat Rd

 - Make the first turn right onto Sheriff Rd

 - Make the second turn left onto Belle Haven Dr

 - Follow Belle Haven Dr straight into the Redzone parking lot

 - Go to the opposite corner of the lot (closest to the stadium and Hill Oaks Rd)

 

If you can’t find parking passes to the RedZone Lot, I would recommend getting passes to the “A” Lot, whether it be Green, Orange, or Platinum.


 

WHO CAN COME ?

 

All are welcome… the more the merrier! We originally started this tailgate for the members of the Extremeskins message board, but it has expanded into something much bigger. We are extremely welcoming of all fans regardless of who you root for. We only ask one thing to all of those who attend: treat others as you would want to be treated. We appreciate some minor razzing back and forth, but please keep it civil. We do not tolerate any physical violence, threats, property damage, etc of any kind! Fans of all ages are welcome to attend, we tend to always have a few kids around (we have non-alcoholic options).

 

We love fans who want to eat, drink, talk football and be merry! We are all fans of the game and want to have a good time. As the Hogettes always say: Hate the team, not the fan!


 

WHAT CAN I DO ?

 

THIS IS IMPORTANT! We are a potluck style tailgate. What does that mean? The tailgate’s success depends on everyone’s participation! Rather than making monetary donations, we absolutely need people to bring food, drinks and supplies. We understand some folks coming from out of town are limited in what they can bring, so in those cases, monetary contributions are welcome (but not solicited). But for people who have the capability of bringing something, we can’t eat money (well we could, but it’s not that tasty). Please see the “Needed Items” section for what you can bring. But what do we really want to see? We want to see you bring your favorite special dishes. Something you make that you or others love to eat! We love to see new items at the tailgate, and that is what makes our tailgate special.

 

If you are bringing something that needs to be cooked at the tailgate, you can reach out in this thread or on our facebook group page to see if anyone has grill space (it’s up to you to coordinate with anyone who does). What I highly recommend is to bring your own portable grill. If you don’t have one, they can be bought pretty cheap, and once you make that investment, you too could be part of our core tailgating crew!

 

This tailgate has been around for quite a while. The thing that has really kept it going are our core tailgaters. These are folks who are the “heart” of this tailgate. These are the folks who come on a consistent basis (if not every game), and make significant donations in food, drinks and supplies. These are the folks you see at every tailgate cooking up food for everyone to enjoy. We have been very lucky to grab a core tailgater here and there over the years, but we are looking for more. If you want to join this elite group, please let us know!! We are always on the lookout for more!

 

Please try to post in this thread, or on our facebook group page what you are bringing. Please see our “Needed Items” section below, if you have questions on what to bring. The biggest thing we need of course is food & drinks!


 

WHO DO I CONTACT ?

 

This thread gets high traffic by many of our tailgate veterans. I highly recommend that if you have any questions regarding details of our tailgate, that you post them here. 99% of any questions you may have should be easily answered here.

 

Many of the members of our tailgate also frequent our facebook group page (Extremeskins Tailgaters). You may post questions here as well. I you are not a member, just request to join, and we will approve your request as soon as possible. The facebook group can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/28387710874/

 

If you are unable to get your question or request answered via these two methods, you may shoot either Huly (skinshuly@gmail.com) or I (pez@gwu.edu) an email.

No weenies needed. The field will be full of them.

If you're not attending and contributing to the tailgate, please refrain from posting those types comments here. 

There are countless threads on ES to do that.  This is not one of them.

Thanks!
