      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.

The Official "DC" Thread (Movies,Comics etc)

Pretty sure Luthor started out with hair in the comics or at least a wig. Can't remember which. So this is fine if it's sort of his beginning and being how young he is, it makes sense. I like the boy genius tech super billionaire Luthor they've come up with.

I also loved Man of Steel though. I don't get the hate for it. It had some flaws but it was still the best Superman movie to me.

For the life of me, I'm still dealing with the whole Gadot getting picked over Carano for Wonder Woman.

As a fan of the original Old Man Logan mini-series of comics and this relaunch. I hope they do the last Jackman movie right. Wish all these comic holding properties for marvel characters would form some new company that allows more to happen.

Ben Affleck To Team With DC’s Geoff Johns On Stand-Alone ‘Batman’ Film: Comic Con

 

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s one for theComic-Con crowd to gnaw on. I’m told that Ben Affleck is teaming up withGeoff Johns to co-write a stand-aloneBatman movie that Affleck will direct and star in after he completes his longstanding plan to helm his scripted adaptation of the Dennis Lehane novelLive By Night. Johns has about as much comic cred as anybody around. He’s DC Comics’ chief creative officer and has written some of its best remembered comic book series including Green Lantern, Aquaman, Batman, Justice League, The Flashand Superman. He also has written TV series superhero transfers Smallville, Arrowand The Flash, as well as the Supergirl project with Greg Berlanti for CBS.

 

 

My studio sources tell me that Affleck and Johns are well in synch and have more than found their rhythm. In fact, they are likely to turn in a script before the end of the summer, prior to Affleck going off to direct Live By Night in November.

If Tyrese is who they go with, my expectations for the film will remain low.

 

I think he may be cast as John Stewart, and not Hal Jordan. Which would likely mean he won't be the main GL within the storyline.

I'm aware, just thinking that John Stewart is important enough to the GLCorps to deserve better than Tyrese

Agreed. There are plenty of black actors who would've been a better choice here.

'The Flash' Movie Finds Its Director (Exclusive)

 

 

 

 

Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to direct and write The Flash, Warner Bros.' comic book movie based on the iconic DC Entertainment scarlet speedster super hero, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

 

The movie project has a treatment from Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo that were also eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.

 

Instead, the busy duo is headed to a galaxy far, far away (in this case just down the street to Disney) to tackle the Han Solo Star Wars movie, thus instigating a new search for a helmer.

 

Flash already has a release date – March 3, 2018 – and an actor who portrays the classic hero known as "the fastest man alive" – Ezra Miller. Miller’s Flash, aka. Barry Allen, is due to be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then more prominently in Justice League Part 1, which will be released in the summer of 2017.
