      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.

"Dear Leader" Kim Jong-il Dead (and other North Korea related news)

Recommended Posts

I don't usually delight in people's deaths, but I have to believe the people of North Korea are looking kinda like this today:

Peace out, fat boy.

Kim Jong-un is only 27....holy ****.

Hopefully he is a sane person...he studied in Switzerland and has been quoted as saying:

When Jong-un was 18, Fujimoto described an episode where Jong-un questioned his lavish lifestyle and asked, "We are here, playing basketball, riding horses, riding Jet Skis, having fun together. But what of the lives of the average people?"

Cool. Maybe he'll be smart enough to realize that it's insane to believe a central body can and should control the lives of other people and simply let them be free.

Don't be so ridiculous and try to put words in my mouth with your "mourning" comment. I just find it a little odd when people find happiness in regards to the death of another human being.

Even when that person inflicted pain and suffering on millions of people for decades? If that death may improve the lives of those people? We shouldn't see that as something to be happy about?

Don't be so ridiculous and call people sick simply because they are glad that the world is rid of a deplorable human being.

Sorry guys, I won't sit here and rejoice with you about the death of another human being, even if I didn't agree with what he did in his life and think even he was mentally unstable.

I do hope that the people of North Korea see this as an opportunity to not allow themselves to be controlled by another government though.

Wow...and I just made a Kim Jong-Il status yesterday.

Will the Koreas be reunited now? I know there were talks before...I wonder if this was being planned since they knew he was on his deathbed

Does South Korea even want reunification at this point? What a mess that would be for them. West+East Germany times a million

No one is telling you how you should feel, but you're calling people names who feel different.

If you want to start in on this though, it's a naive world view to believe the death of no human is a time for celebration. It comes from someone who never had to live under the rule of someone such as that.

That's right. I find it a little unnerving that people wish death or celebrate the death of another human being, regardless of how bad of a person he or she may have been.

RIP

Rest in poop.

That was very well done. Silly but classic. Simple but completely fitting. Two thumbs up and in a dead man's eyes.

**** him.

I have no idea why I should give a damn.

he was a terrible, horrible human being. Of all the billions on earth, he was one of the absolute worst. Nothing about his life was good.

The only thing bad about him dying today is it didn't happen sooner.

Why do you find it odd that people are happy that a brutal dictator who has done nothing but destabilize the world while murdering millions of victims is dead?

I find it odd that you feel that is odd.

You find it unnerving that people celebrate the death of a monster. I find that out of touch with reality.

Correct. They're not good at much, but they've been great at brainwashing.

So if the only way the lives of millions of people can improve is by a cruel dictator dying....people are wrong for wanting that to happen?

Some deaths should be celebrated.

This is one of them

I'm celebrating what his death means, you can't separate his death from what it means to millions of people.

This is nothing like saying "YES! Person X just died!" and it being something of no consequence.

You are going to have to prove and show that this mans death is going to improve the lives of the people in North Korea. As far as I can tell, he is going to be replaced, which means that their lives will not improve. As I mentioned earlier, hopefully the people in that country realize governments in all shapes and sizes are not your friends, don't care about individual people, and do more harm then good and will see this as an opportunity to oppose any new form of state control over their lives.
