      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.

This thread cracks me up. What the hell do you want to hear, “We are open to business on trading Trent” and announce it publicly? It lowers his value. Just like the Jaguars who insisted they wouldn’t be trading Ramsey, until they did...Hold out till you get the best haul you can. If they hold him hostage forever just to send a message that’s one thing, but all the information leaking out points to the contrary. Too much smoke around Cleveland, sounds like price is too steep for them and I’m sure Dorsey has legitimate concern about relinquishing what could actually be a high to mid round pick. The comments by Dorsey seem like posturing, holding out hope we agree to trade him without their first included. Hold out for the first.

 

I think a good line for any GM is that they will make any move that will help this team get better. That covers all players and potential compensation, so it's a good catch all. 

 

Granted it's just his public posturing, so one could assume he's more flexible behind closed doors, but by all accounts Bruce isn't willing to trade Trent, period. He's not even acting like me might flinch. You could say he's playing his poker hand very well, but there's a contract/trade negotiation history where it seems  like an unlikely outcome. 

 

As for the Dorsey comments I don't know how to read them. Is he saying Allen should be at the table or is he just explaining why he hasn't made a deal? Can't really tell.

Snyder and Allen must think they just have Redskins fans blind loyalty and that they don't owe any explanations to the fans. How can Bruce not come out and explain his position on not trading Trent? ***** him and his hair club for men haircut! And ***** Snyder too.

I'm really at a breaking point with this organization. The fact that they're this bad and like you said say nothing. I don't understand how anyone goes to there games. It's just a flat out kick in the face of the fans on how all of this has been handled. 1-5 and the Owner/GM says nothing to what direction we're going. All we here is that we are close and that is just a flat out lie. 

 

No one should support this team and give them money. Who ever  throws money at this team in any way is also the problem.  Stop supporting this team guys, nothing is changing for the good.

Cleveland is certainly interested in Williams, Dorsey made that clear without naming him. At 2-4, his team is underperforming against expectations, and star second-year QB Baker Mayfield has been sacked 16 times in six games. Dorsey knows he needs to bolster the Browns offensive line. 

"It’s a hard position to acquire, especially at this time of year. We’ll make a million phone calls. We’ll constantly work the phones," Dorsey said. "If nothing happens, we’ll move onto the next project. If we think we can improve the position, we’ll make a move if it’s right for this organization."

Compensation will be key as the Williams situation unfolds...

The calls will keep coming to Ashburn asking about WIlliams. The question will be if Allen will pick them up.

That’s where I am. I don’t mind supporting a losing team that’s at least committing to a  plan, whether it be rebuilding or competing. But there is no direction thanks to the incompetency of the FO.  I used to think we were being too hard on them as they seemed to be trying but I realized I was viewing it through burgundy tinted glasses.

I guarantee this is how Gruden felt here, and I wish he'd shown some fire like this on the way out just to spotlight Bruce hiding in the shadows while Jay had to answer all the questions for 5+ years. I'm sure Callahan will put up with the same **** the next two weeks with questions about Trent that the FO should be answering:

Doug Marrone is the most underrated coach in football, pro & college. Unfortunately, he is consistently handed crap to work with.

There’s a story around these parts, that I have confirmation is true, about a badass Marrone story.

 

At Bills training camp... the players were eating in the cafeteria and this one player was getting loud and calling his teammates at his table out, and saying generally ****ty things. Marrone was walking by when this was going on.

 

He stopped. Turned around. Walked to the table... calmly put his hand down on it... looked at the player dead in the eye and said, “you’re cut. Pack your ****.”

 

Then, like a John Wayne ass son of a gun he turned around and walked off down the hallway and out the door.

Basically Trent's issue with the organization is about a combination of things according to Adrian.  He was asked if there is something they can do to bring back, Trent.  Adrian goes, yes but didn't elaborate.  I'd guess money?

If Doug knew how to recruit, he’d be winning national titles somewhere. I’d love to see him let go by Jax & end up here, though... the thought of Doug Marrone answering to Bruce Allen is nauseating.

"It takes two to tango", says Mr. Dorsey.

 

What he fails to acknowledge is that masturbation is commonly done solo and Bruce can't dance.

The trade to Cleveland should be finalized by the end of the week. Such an incompetent front office. 

 

Give Miami credit, they have a clear strategy and vision.

Miami gets no credit... they traded away two young talents on rookie deals for picks that may never end up being anywhere near the talent level of Tunsil or Fitzpatrick...

 

Having said that, yes, we are asshats for not trading away aging vets for picks while the getting is good... Thanks, Bruce, for being the butthole of the league.
