      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.

I think I **** talked preston smith in week 1 saying it was a fluke. 

 

Dude is pretty unstoppable right now. It's too bad he wasn't like that with the redskins.

I remember seeing something from him early on but he disappeared for the last couple years when he was given the full time gig.. 4 sacks in a full season is pretty bad. 

 

Could very well be our coaches though. Our defense should not be performing as badly as it is.

He saved the game for the skins against the vikings in fed ex a few years back..I think against the packers as well...he won the game or at least was a big part of why the skins beat the boys in fed ex last year..ya the ****ty ass coaching held his abilities back..it ****ing sucks big donkey dongs the skins let him go...theres been alot of players the skins have let go that's had me shaking my head but this one made me sick to my stomach and makes me sicker each packers game I watch.

The Redskins have a FB.

Redskins sign fullback Michael Burton, place tight end Jerome Cunningham on IR

 

The Washington Redskins signed fullback Michael Burton to the active roster, replacing tight end Jerome Cunningham who was placed on IR.

On Tuesday, the Redskins did something that truly signified that the Jay Gruden era is over. They signed a fullback to their active roster.

According to the Redskins official Twitter account, the team has signed Michael Burton to their 53-man roster. To make room for Burton, they placed tight end Jerome Cunningham on season-ending IR.

That's bull ****

If you're gonna sign a FB, then sign Elijah Wellman ÔĽŅ

Why is it bull **** to sign the better player instead of the sentimental UDFA in the middle of the season and who hasn't played a single down of meaningful football?

Redskins sign RB Josh Ferguson to the PS. Also worked out Kapri Bibbs and Jeremy McNichols.

 

Chris Thompson may be out for a while with turf toe. AP/CT and Keenum all not practicing today... FWIW

Because aside from experience or inexperience, Wellman can flat-out play.

Sentimentality is not a part of it.

The one we signed doesn't quite have a glowing resume either.

Elijah Wellman has been in the NFL for two years and never played for anyone during the regular season. Michael Burton has been in the league for 5 years and played in all 5 of those years. You say that Wellman is better because he can flat-out play; the Redskins and the rest of the NFL clearly do not agree. The team has made a lot of decisions that are deserving of criticism. Their decision to not sign a UDFA who hasn't cracked a roster in 2 years is not one of them.

Is Chesson on IR or PS?

IR. They signed a different WR earlier to replace him on PS.

Look.

You're an ES member and I'm an ES member, right ?

Therefore we are both NFL-level Talent Executives, Scouts, and NFL GM's, right ?

We both know NFL-level talent when we see it, right ?

So you need to accept it when I say "this kid has NFL-level talent" just like I say accept it, when you say so, right ?

I think it’s more that he came at you with a little bit of evidence/ a backing vs. you just making claims that 32 teams with actual nfl talent evaluators, scouts etc disagree with.

It's remarkable how ineffective a player can be, when stuck in our outdated terrible read first scheme
