      VICTORY!!!
       
      Redskins 20 - 15 Cardinals
       
      Sorry folks, just made it. Plus, all of our photogs are injured.
       
      It must be the end of a bad season with no hope of playoffs.
       
      But I am here, JimmiJo, to bring you all the action.
       
      Here are my thoughts in a nutshell, bottom-line sort of way: win today or coaches could become at risk. 
       
      This is where you see who is who and who will be here next year.

      Inactives 
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 19 WR Robert Davis
      o   No. 35 S Montae Nicholson
      o   No. 53 LB Zach Brown
      o   No. 67 G Kyle Kalis
      o   No. 71 T Trent Williams
      o   No. 73 C Demetrius Rhaney
      o   No. 97 DL Terrell McClain
       
      Half
       
      Prototypical game for Washington. Jump out to early start, then the offense starts to fade. The bad news with this is Arizona has stuck with the run game and it is starting to pay dividends for them. 
       
      Thanks to a fumble by Vernon Davis and a good defensive stand by the Redskins; the Cardinals were able to muster a field goal to pull within 5.

      Head coach Jay was visibly upset on that last drive and one wonders if he is not going to be lighting this team up in the locker room.
       
      The Redskins get the ball to start the half.

      Make no mistake. A win is a win is a win.
       
      But let’s not kid ourselves; any competent quarterback for Arizona and this was likely a loss. Heck, if the tight end holds the ball at the 1-yard line at the end it is likely a loss.
       
      The Washington Redskins got one they had to have. It meant nothing in the overall; there are no postseason aspirations, and this game likely had no spoiler-implications.
       
      But for the Redskins it was about pride and identity. It was also about people’s jobs.
       
      If a football team cannot get up for a much-needed win against a bad team in front of their home crowd; the problems are about more than injuries and dumb-luck. Such a loss would have been an indictment of the coaching staff. Specifically the head coach.
       
      Attitude is a reflection of leadership, as the saying goes. And lately this team has not been showing up.
       
      That’s on the man in charge.
       
      A loss today and ownership could be starting to consider a change at skipper. At a minimum he is wondering who else is out there.
       
      The good news is the team responded and found a way to win. They had help.
       
      Blaine Gabbert finished the day 16-of-41 for 181 for quarterback rating of 52.9. Worse were those moments when he decided to have poor accuracy. His red zone effectiveness was atrocious.
       
      Then there were the dropped balls from the receivers. If the Cardinals tight end catches the ball at the 1-yard line we are having a different conversation.
       
      The Redskins on the other hand didn’t fare much better. They posted just 218 total net yards of offense, and a paltry 31-yards rushing.
       
      The offense benefitted from an opening drive sack-fumble by their defense. Two plays later, Kirk connected with Jamison Crowder for the easy touchdown.
       
      Two drives later the Redskins would again draw blood when Cousins hooked up with Kapri Bibbs fir a 36-yard touchdown.
      But after this the offense went flat. They managed only 15-total plays in the first half. And early in the 2nd half had only amassed 5-yards rushing.
       
      The turnover the start the second half deflated the team and stadium.  Washington would manage to add another two field goals, and it turned out to be  just enough to get the win.
       
      Cousins was by far the best player on offense finishing 18/26 for 196-yards, 2-touchdowns and a QB-rating of 149.07.
      Crowder led all receivers with 5-catches for 55-yards and a TD. Next came Bibbs, with 4-receptions for 47-yards and a touchdown.
       
      Defensively, Washington brought pressure that made a difference at times. Preston Smith had a banner-day; finishing the game with a sack, fumble recovery, and interception. Anthony Lanier had two batted balls and a forced fumble. Kendall Fuller led all tacklers with 6-solo and 2-assists.
       
      The Redskins did just enough to get a win at home. It means they can still to avoid a losing season which would paint a much different picture on the season.
       
      From here on out it’s about who wants to be here next year. Washington has one more home game against the Denver Broncos, who feature a touch defensive group. They will then travel to New York for the final game of the year.
       
      It’s all about character now.

I've found that I am still attracted to women around my age. The younger women look great yet don't have the experience or maturity or something like that of women my age.

 

Maybe the same for you.

 

I agree. Im 28. 21-24 year olds, beyond physical attractiveness, don't do a whole lot when it comes to thinking on a certain wavelength or even having things in common.

 

Older women just carry themselves differently. Very straightforward and more adept at conversation. And around here many look just as good if not better than younger girls. Get one in her early 40s and its like a perfectly ripened fruit, or cereal with the right amount of saturation to it

Was feeling sorry for myself with the knees aching today, then a customer came in with prosthetic legs. 

Everything is relative.

some girls are psycho.  I was talking to some girl from Match.  We texted for 1 day and didn't for a while since i was out of town.  I mentioned to her i will be busy the next 2 weeks with work trips and other things. She promptly left 2 voicemails and called 3 times, saying she tried her hardest to go out with me and she has other guys knocking on her door and to go have fun on my trips. She said she doesn't have anymore time to waste with me and not wait for me to come back from my trips. 

 

Another girl i went out with last week for dinner. She texted me a few days after and said she needed space.  We literally texted 2 messages in 3 days after our time. Her excuse i dont want to date since i just got out of a long term relationship. Why did you go out in the first place?

You might legitimately have the worst luck ever in the history of dating. Every dating story you post just sounds horrible.

I keep joking with my lady that I am going to buy an X-Box or PS. I hope she is not taking me serious, and just picks one up at some random point. 

 

Side note : I told her a few weeks ago that I wanted a pair of shell tops...she had no idea what I was talking about. She knows now. I was joking about that too...but she got that joke. I have shoes that I have had for years and only worn a couple of times. I do need another antenna for the TV in one of the bedrooms.

Once or twice. No big deal, just bad luck.  Several times, then we have an actual pattern.  It's like some girls that are only into "bad boys" that cheat on them and treat them like ****, same goes with dudes.  Some dude always get with chicks that want to fake pregnancies, threaten to chop of dicks, lights cars on fire, **** like that.
