      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.

What's Happening On October 1 In The Dc Area? Fema Preparing For Disaster?

Recommended Posts

I feel dumb for posting this but my co worker just sent me a link to this article and has worked herself up into a panic. She's insisting that she is leaving the area a few days before October 1 to avoid a potentially catastrophic event for the DC area.

 

I keep laughing at her and telling her to take off her tin foil hat but still figured I'd post this since this is all news to me.


Has anyone else heard about this or is this information only getting through to the extremely paranoid?

Tin foil hat crew at work again. 

 

That was/is my immediate reaction.

 

My coworker told me she knows someone in the military who is stationed in Puerto Rico and was transferred up to one of the bases in NoVA specifically for this event and he is reporting there are bringing in hundreds of empty coffins at a time. Sounds like bs to me

Well for the possibility of impending casualties they bring body bags, not caskets.  Way to hard to store caskets and to expensive.

Not to be insulting, but it is paranoid and stupid and wrong.  The internet allows the most gullible of us to scream chicken little like this.  Don't buy into it, and try to help your friends and family keep their perspective.

 

 

First, I'd like to thank this 76 year old long retired local South Dakota state legislator for his brilliant detective work.  Surely a man such as that has inside access to all of the workings of the federal security apparatus.    2 minutes of googling, avoiding the usual paranoid sites, reveals the following:

 

1)  The "warnings" were posted on an anonymous internet message board by someone who called themselves "CyberWarrior."  Songstad just recieved them in a fwd:ffwd:fwd email chain, and he sent it along.  Suddenly people think someone "official" is behind this.  

 

2)  The facts are wrong.  MERS is considered serious but not THAT serious, the WHO didn't order that a vaccine be ready by October 1, and in fact, there currently is no MERS vaccine at all, much less one that can be made ready in just a couple of weeks.

 

3)  Viruses don't respond to antibiotics.

 

This is dumb.

October 1 eh? That sounds really sinister. it couldn't be that the Federal government routinely has a bunch of contracts which have delivery clauses by the end of their Fiscal Year?

 

In other news, flowers are cheaper on February 15 than in the week before and many retailers have sales after December 25. There's evidence of conspiracy and collusion everywhere.

Massive US East Coast Disaster Warned Near As
Dolphin Deaths Explode

 

A chilling new report prepared for President Putin by the Ministry of
Emergency Situations (EMERCOM) on
top-secret NSA intelligence documents obtained by the Federal Security Services
(FSB) from heroic whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals
that US Federal officials in the area of the United States designated as FEMA Region III [Washington D.C., Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania,
Virginia, West Virginia] are “quietly
preparing”
for what these documents state is an “imminent catastrophic threat” related to a previously unknown
fault zone many scientific experts fear could see this area being destroyed by
volcanic, earthquake and massive tsunamis as early as this coming October.

The FEMA caskets thing is bullcrap too.  It pops up every couple of years.

 

Here it is debunked in 2012, after Jesse Ventura and Alex Jones spread a version of the same rumor.

Yea I find she lacks common sense sometimes. I keep telling her to chill but she's insisting on flying to stay with her family in Florida.

 

I was just curious if anyone else had caught wind of this rumor

I had a friend send me this BS.  I told her that they were probably just replenishing supplies used during Hurricane Sandy and other disasters, using Federal end of year money.  Fiscal year ends Sept. 30th, so contracting shops are busy spending money for all sorts of things.

You should tell her that a safe zone is being created in Cuba and that there will be a mass exodus of boats off Miami beach around midnight September 29th or 30th. Then tell her if she isn't on one of the specially designated boats, the US Military has been authorized to sink any other boat.

 

Feel free to elaborate further.

Top five signs telling you to leave town before October 1:

 

(1) Local police, fire, and rescue workers are all issued new sets of Kevlar gloves without explanation.

(2) City workers are observed cleaning and polishing air raid sirens.

(3) Everyone's dog runs away on September 30.

(4) At 10:00pm on September 30, after playing a round of golf in Brazil, Barack Obama announces from the clubhouse that Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin are visiting the Whitehouse for dinner on October 1 at 8:00am.  He is then seen going up to his hotel room for bed.

(5) Bill Clinton informs Hillary that he wants to renew their wedding vowels at 6:00a.m., October 1, in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

 

These are the types of signs you need to look out for.
