      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.

Flacco to Skins?

Recommended Posts

In light of recent events with the QB situation in Washington and it appearing that Lamar is now the new QB of the Ravens can you see Flacco signing with the Skins?

What's his record against Dallass?

 

Alex Smith is undefeated, ladies and germs! At least in a Redskins uniform.

He would fit the mold of washed up QBs at the dying stage of their career starting for this team so why not.

Sure. But only if we give him a big new deal on top of it. Him, Smith, and Colt could take rotating turns in the dunk tank at Harvest Fest while Brucey pounds Coors Light with Danny Boy.

 

Also, if no fans are in actual attendance on gameday, did the games actually happen? We would finally get the answer to that question.

Sure let's give Flacco $71 million.  Give Colt and Buttfumble $71 million too.  Give everyone $71 million.

Sounds like a win-win situation so maybe the Ravens will engage Andy Reid to open the Flaco discussions on their behalf, Andy has got Dan Snyder's ear among other things.

Dying? Fam, I think you mean dead... Toe tag... bone dried worm meat. Then Dan backs up the Brinks truck and takes the remains to the Pet Semetary

No.

 

But if we could trade for Lamar JAckson I would be on the board!!!

 

I was thinking the same thing.  I would trade every QB we have for Jackson right now!!

Well, I often hear fans argue that if a QB has not had playoff success yet, they have proven that they could never win a Championship.  So, obviously either Flacco or Foles are the only real options for any franchise that wants a chance to win it all.  Unless you think that you can trade for Brady, or one of the other lesser QBs like Brees or Rodgers.

Flacco?? Hell no... But is RG3 still available?? (runs to the kitchen and refills his jack&coke) 🤪Then we'll draft McKenzie Milton and get Theismann to be QB coach.. We'll have the league cornered with busted leg QB's!! It'll be fun! 🤣 Sorry for the hijack.. 🙃

I would take Foles, Flacco can keep going.

Outside of a miraculous playoff run where Anquan Boldin bailed Flacco out repeatedly he's been pretty meh.  I think the best case for the Skins, outside of the draft, is someone like Teddy Bridgewater who's ceiling as an NFL QB is still unclear.
