      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.

No suspension expected for Reuben Foster, per source. Great news for retooled Redskins defense

I thought it was a no brainer at the time. Glad it turned out well for us. Landon and Reuben provides us with more talent and athletic ability in the middle of our defense than we’ve had in quite some time. With our DL up front and we add another difference maker in the front 7 to go with Kerrigan off the edge it could be a pretty fun defense to watch.

Ferrari Foster and Landon really improve this defense.Foster great in coverage and with outstanding range in the run game.Outside runs will be shut down with this Super Star on the field. Best offseason news to date.

And in a few weeks we might be able to add Josh Rosen to that list! lol

The reports the past couple of days are that the Chargers could make a play for him apparently. It’s getting to the point where i just might mute every tweet with his name in it until draft day 😂😂

 

also a twitter account by the name of “Landon Collins Szn” tweeted tonight that diggs to the redskins is really starting to heat up....seriously people? STOP MAKING UP STUPID **** like this!!! It’s dumb!

I fully believe people on Twitter are making up rumors and blowing smoke up people's asses. That said, I do see a case for the Vikings trading Diggs with the money they have tied up in Thielen and Kurt. I could see Bruce calling about Stefon... doesn't mean it will happen.

I don't think I've ever taken anything anyone online has said to me to heart, outside of the words of an online friend I made during the early years of AOL chatrooms--we had a lot of personal talks and she, unfortunately, ended up dying of cancer. I've also had a few relationships that started online and lasted years, but that's a different category.

 

Other than that, nothing anyone says to me online ever gets to me. And I think that fact pisses off some people lol...at the same time, I also assume nothing I say to anyone online ever gets to them, either. Well, outside of the "lol" that seems to trigger emotions in some lol 😏...

What about trading Jordan Reed and some draft capital to make it happen, (not sure what it would take)? This is assuming we execute all the other ways we can save money. Signing Scherff, cutting V. Davis' salary, restructuring Norman, and not making him the highest paid anything (but paying him very well)...  It's not unreasonable.

I don't think Jordan Reed would be a very valuable asset for a trade of a player of that caliber.  He might be a throw in in a deal centered around a premier draft pick.  Maybe a 2nd gets it done?  If Houston feels he is asking for too much and that they eventually won't be able to extend him, they could view a 2nd in 2019 as better than a 3rd in 2021 (comp pick).  But I doubt the Texans are ready to throw in the towel on him.

I think Jordan has value as an addition to say a 3rd this year. It's a decent offer given you have to pay him as well for what he's done to this point in his career. I also agree they aren't ready to make that move but you never know until you ask as they say...Was just throwing it out there that I'd make that call, the worst they can say is no, we aren't there yet.  

 

Career       62 55 0 0 0 0 11 4 0 6 71 2 29.0 205 151 54 64 67   40
2014 21 HOU lb 90 4 2                       7 5 2 3 0   1
2015 22 HOU LB 90 13 9 0 0 0 0 6           4.5 40 27 13 8 8   5
2016* 23 HOU DE/lb 90 14 14 0 0 0 0 2 1 0 0 0 0 6.0 52 40 12 16 17   13
2017* 24 HOU de/LB/mlb 90 16 16 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 3 71 1 9.5 59 41 18 21 21   10
2018* 25 HOU de/LB 90 15 14 0 0 0 0 1 1 0 3 0 1 9.0 47 38 9 16 21   11

 

Here are his stats, the guy has not broken 10 sacks or 60 tackles in any given year. He had injury issues early in his career. He's only 26, I don't think he's lived up to the billing of his draft pick.  From the Redskins standpoint there is value there on a guy who has underperformed up till now but has immense talent and has not entered his prime.  He seems to have learned how to be a pro after his first two rocky seasons. I'd kick the tires on that.  It's not gonna happen, lol.

The AAF guys are technically FA's, so you could add them to the thread title.

I mean, not to mention the thread title is so short and boring, it could use a little more descriptiveness, like the rules state. 😛
