      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.

I'm in. I'll donate $50 if the skins DON'T make the playoffs. I'll donate $100 if we make it to the Super Bowl regardless of the game's outcome.

$100 that we make the playoffs.

CLARIFICATION: If we don't make the playoffs I'll pay $100 to ES. (I can't root against it!?)

If I lose I want to change my username again!

I have edited my post to CLARIFY that I am not betting both ways. My bet is simple, if WE DO NOT MAKE THE PLAYOFFS I pay $100.

Somebody confused me and put me in both ways, again I am only paying if we DO NOT make the playoffs.

Nice job on the rest of this!

:cheers: :cheers:

I admire all you fans that have stepped up and put your faith in our team. I also have respect for the other teams that have also got involved in this thread. Much respect to all!!!!

Now I know there's more fans out there and I know you can afford 50 bucks so, show your faith in our team (that's if you believe). You'll spend this amount just watching one game next season. C'mon???? My vision is to see every fan involved in this thread. Step up....

So are we betting for or against the Redskins? I don't get it, I think I'll just buy a hat or something.

It depends on your perception. I am putting up $250 if the Skins don't make the playoffs, meaning to me that I am so confident that the skins will make the playoffs that I am willing to give up $250 if they don't.

Others perceive the situation as why should you give money if they don't make the playoffs, they probably perceive the situation that they will be so happy when the skins finally make the playoffs that they are willing to donate to the site. I am donating $500 when the skins win the next Superbowl based on this thought process.

Either way, the site is guaranteed a large donation without having solicited it and we can show them some love for building and maintaining such a great site.

Ok, why does the black extremeskins hat have a white button on it? That's just weird.

Out of curiosity, before this thread what has been the largest $$ donation to ExtremeSkins that wasn't from the owners?

Not sure, but I believe that both rayprils and EagleSteve have donated $500 at a single time.

Agreed. No matter what happens, we need to show some love to this site. What better to include some bets as donation for a good cause. If you're going to lose money to your bookie, why not give it to Extremeskins?? I still can't believe we haven't gotten more people participating on this thread. C'mon people. $5,$10 or etc.

Simple...
