      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.

How Can I Make $3,000 - $5,000 (almost) Overnight?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea how I can make between $3,000 - $5,000 dollars within days? lol...Bank loans and borrowing from family unfortunately are not options.

Without going into a lot of personal details, I found myself in a situation in which medical bills, caring for my elderly father with Alzheimer, and an extremely delinquent client have tapped me out, and now I find myself needing at least $3,000 to get through until next month when I can get everything back on track. I've been trying to solve this situation for about a week now and have come up empty each time.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Sorry, that's all I got (well, besides robbing a bank :paranoid: ).

401(k) plan? There are usually provisions for hardship withdrawals or loans. While this isn't the best option, it is an option if you have a retirement plan.

Side jobs my man, side jobs.

Can you paint?

Can you mow grass?

What about random odds and ends type for your family?

Painting can bring in a decent amount of money fairly quickly. Talk to people you know and find out if they need odds and ends work done, if they do, offer to do it, at a reasonable price. Painting a room should only take a day, charge 500 per room(depending on its size) not including supplies and wallah, you got it easily.

Borrowing from friends is never a good idea.

Go to hospitals, donate bone marrow. I don't know details but I've heard it pays a lot (700-1000). Maybe it's not like, something you can do in a couple of days, and it hurts like a *****, but it's an option. It pays a LOT more than donating plasma or semen, which should also be open options for fast money. Or, if you're really desperate, a loan shark.... but that's some sketchy stuff.

credit card.

only pay bills which are absolutely necessary, let others wait a month if possible

also, I think some places will loan you money by signing over your car title. You get the title back once you pay them back, but you still keep your car. I think I've heard of this, but I could be mistaken.

credit card worked for me when I was in a bind once. found one thru my insurance provider, approval within minutes, and you can have it expidited to you and have it in 2-3 days.

of course you do assume risks w/ the credit card. hope this helps.

And I don't know any loan sharks...dammit lol.

If you're in a tight bind, the 401K thing mentioned above might be a decent option. I don't know your situation, obviously, but if you can't get a bank loan for one reason or another at the moment do you have a family member or friend who trusts you that would co-sign on a loan with you? A 3,000-5,000 loan isn't all that much for a bank to consider, especially if it is co-signed.

First of all sympathies, this is half the reason that I really wanted health care reform (albeit not the one that we got).

What I would do is really think about your junk. Do you have any junk that might possibly be collectable or a useful antique? Stuff, that you can either auction off, ebay off, pawn shop off? Do you have an expertise that can be consulted out? Although, that would probably like too much time to set up if you need the money NOW. The other thing I would do is drive down to these guys who you owe the money to. Face to face is always better than the phone and appeal to them. Lay out the story, show your history of being a good and trustworthy client and ask for them to work with you. You might get lucky and in my experience in person, most people tend not to be cold hearted ****s.

Consulting. If you have a white collar skill odds are good someone needs it for a few days (not enough to hire a full time employee).

Weekend work. Sadly this usually means labor which is a drag but if you need the cash this gets you closer.

Pawn something. If you're sure you'll get back on track you can always reclaim the item. BE SURE BEFORE YOU DO THIS.

Another thought, do you belong to a church? Would they be willing to take up a collection for you. If the church has a hundred members than 3-5,000 isn't that horrific a price and it would be a good Christian thing to do.

Honestly can't remember where you fall on the religious spectrum. No offense intended by this idea. Just thinking of community resources.

If it's a choice between satisfying your most basic needs or not satisfying your basic needs, not completely knowing your situation, and without going into too much detail, you could definitely sell drugs. Prescription drugs have a huge profit margin. It's super illegal and super risky, but if it's a matter of keeping a roof over your head and food in your stomach, there's worse ways to pick up a quick buck.
