      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.

Soooooo let's play pretend that keenum is our quarterback and has an actual Good year...the skins win ten games(majority of the wins from the double headed monster)do the skins go qb rnd 1 next year or extend keenum and do something else with the pick?...my personal opinion is that gruden is canned in season and the skins win 3 games.. complete rebuild and that's when a QB heavy draft comes in next year

 

This scenario kind of puts us in a bad spot. This is why I want Rosen because I feel like this team CAN win 8 to 10 games and we would have him waiting in the wings. If we dont get him, we will be in a very unfavorable position to draft a QB next year. Unless Keenum turns into an actual good QB, hes probably not the guy and just a stop-gap. No way this team wins 3 games lol, too much talent on defense.

if next year is QB heavy then we could get someone in the middle or it or be close enough to pull of a trade without breaking the bank

Wow. You must be one of the very few positive ones :P almost every other person I’m pretty sure thinks we’ll suck and be 4-12 and it’ll be Grudens final season here.

I see no regression in this team.  We have been around a 500 team and that seem like we can remain that

 

We could go 3-3 against the NFC East, we could go 3-1 against the AFC East.  The rest of the season features teams with similar or worse records than us last year.  We beat the Packers last year.  The 9ers were 4-12.  The Panthers were also 7-9 and the Lions were 6-10.  The Viking were 8-7-1 and we know Cousins.  Course the Vikings know Keenum

All off season I tell my self/prepare my self for complete disaster from the skins...even through free agency bringing in new players drafting players all the way to pre season I prep my self for the skins to fail and my personal opinion of the Redskins up coming season is something that can happen to any team..especially the skins..so when they only win 7-8 games and just miss the playoffs and the coach gets to stick around I come away as if the season was a success 😉..

 

However..I am the MOST POSITIVE skins fan around...15-1 and Super Bowl bound.. against my best friends dolphins...I would never ever in a million years hope for the Skins to only win a couple games to position themselves better in the upcoming draft.

I don't believe that's true, either.  Defense will win enough games to keep us hovering, but I don't trust Case yet.

I think if the Skins get another pass rusher it'll either be a depth guy drafted in the mid rounds or a depth guy signed a couple weeks after the draft.  And at WR youth is the one thing they really don't need more of

LOL BT - however was bantering with a stupid die hard Eagles fan and he thinks Wentz is a bust and they made a mistake letting Foles go.  Apparently there are a lot of people up in Philly that feel the same.

I'm loving it...if the skins bottom out and land in 4th in the division and the eagles at 3 because of horrible quarterback play it would make my season...I've called it since they won the Superbowl with Foles I refused to watch... They're going to let the wrong QB go

Just talked to a Redskins source who told me Dan Snyder has "taken over the first round of the draft." The last time that happened the Redskins traded two future No. 1's and a No. 2 to move up for Robert Griffin.

I don't know. Hard to say Wentz has not been good. Rookie year was good by rookie standards then two seasons with a QB rating above 100 (last season wasn't as good, but we should factor in that he was months from total knee reconstruction). 

 

This will sound bad, but I'm rooting for another injury. The only thing that can derail the kid is health.

I agree...I had always posted that you build a dominating D FIRST and have a Good running game on O to control the clock and win like the Ravens did. I actually want our 1st pick to be a Edge Rusher on D to pressure the QB's and force turnovers with Collins and Crew and play short field. We HAVE a Kicker to put some points on the board.

 

Secondly, I like McCoy to run a ball control O and let the D eat.... I want to see what Rob Ryan's impact on the LB's will be (hopefully he'll influence Manusky to be aggressive)

 

I love to watch a wicked defense play hard ball...

 

*i* predict a 8-8 and mabey 10-6 if we get to Philly early on and flip one more in our first 6 games...

I wonder if this style now requires the QB to be a legit threat running the ball. Kind of like the Ravens are doing with Jackson. It’s old school smash mouth football, but with the being the catalyst to the run game. 

 

Not to say you can’t be a playoff team with a run of the mill QB and great supporting cast.

The Patriots D throttled the Rams....and THEY were considered next to the Greatest Show on Turf team...Brady only scored one TD...10-3.

If the goal is to NOT GET FIRED ,Bruce and Jay, this path has the highest probability of success and get a QB next year after surviving. The Skins Fans of old LOVE Defense and serviceable O with a Good RB. We NEVER had a Franchise QB and won doing the above.

Pats are always a great argument for any and all to use. I personally choose to never use them as an argument, due to them being on a playing all their own, you know. 

 

One could argue the Eagles played with great defense and a run game. Though, the RPO scheme and overall creative run game had a lot to do with it. 

 

Im not against playing a smash mouth brand of football (was a huge supporter of Smith and style last year), but the teams ceiling was limited. I was more rooting for momentum heading into future years. Team  continues to lack CULTURE and IDENTITY, so if smash mouth/old school football provides this, let’s do it!

 

I can truly enjoy watching any form of winning lol

No it didn't.

 

The team quickly came out almost as soon as the rumor was on the radio and flatly denied it, calling it "categorically false".

 

I'm sure Snyder is involved to some extent. It's his team after all. However, I doubt he is making the picks and moves himself.

 

Let's hope not, anyway. :)
