      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.

Game of Thrones Season 6

Recommended Posts

This show changed my life

 

If you're referring to your choosing a different female character each week to dress up like and repeat her lines, I agree--that's a real fan.

 

And I think even most tailgaters have come to accept that there's nothing wrong with that--just accessorize accordingly.

I watched season 5 again last week to get ready for the new season. Very uneven season, but they nailed the high spots.

 

Hardhomme kinda makes you forget about all criticism you had before watching.

It will be weird going into this season without having read books on it. Very refreshing and disappointing at the same time.

I watched the last 4 episodes (well, I still have to watch the finale again). Hardhome was just a fantastic TV episode, as was the Dance of Dragons.

I also am a pansy.

All I gotta say is they owe us after last years stagnant plot and annoying diversions. **** needs to happen.

And for the love of all things holy, no more of Tyrian setting out on another journey or a Lanister kidnapped. Just stop.

Let's start to see where all of this is going please

Well, to be fair, the material season 5 is based around isn't the most exciting. The better part of "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance with Dragons" is political maneuvering and intrigue. Not a ton of action. The only part of season 5 I really had a problem with is the Dorne stuff. That was very poorly done. It's also a weak point in the books, IMO, but the show was even worse.

 

I expect the pace to pick up quite a bit this season though. I saw the new trailer today, and got goosebumps. Man, this should be a very good season.

Obviously the final season will be epic. But I fully expect this season to be #1 or #2 best of the seasons when all is said and done and thus, one of the greatest seasons in the history of TV

Someone on Winter is Coming went through the most recent trailer frame by frame and analyzed every little detail. Of course I couldn't resist.

It's gonna be a good season.

Considering this season is all new stuff, I've made the choice to not look at anything that may spoil what may happen this season. So all of those long range pictures of actors on the set, ignored it. Even ignored most of the trailers.

Can we please see.the sand snakes nekkid again! Thanks.

I think we only saw the short-haired (on her head) one tempting Bron with her absolutely perfect breasts.  I wouldn't mind the other two getting in on the action....

"That is what I do. I drink.  And I know things."

 

I love Tyrian.  I wish his quotes were more applicable to real life.  He'd be a great quote to toss into some business meetings.

How about Daenerys with yet another new group of warriors or making another character central to the entire show for a couple of years before killing him off so they can start with someone else.
