      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 2017 Offseason Twitter Thread

Recommended Posts

Iiiiiiiiiiiiit's back ladies and gentlemen!

Alright, everybody calm down and shut up now. 

 

First, let's talk about what this thread is going to be from here on out. Most will recall that the reason we shut down the twitter thread this season was because it became an all-encompassing mega thread that dominated the board and stifled discussion outside of it. 

 

That is NOT happening, again. How, you might ask? 

 

Well, we're going to be super strict about discussions on hot topics that either have threads or deserve new ones being discussed here. Really, anything Redskins/Football related that'd normally be discussed within The Stadium will no longer be allowed to be discussed here. 

 

Any of that will immediately result in your post being deleted and/or a 48 hour posting restriction. Further violations will potentially garner worse penalties. There will be no warnings outside of the verbal ones you find within this thread.

 

 Now, this doesn't mean any and all discussion here isn't allowed. Some of the "whatnot" and more minor stuff will inevitably lead to posts here, but we want this thread to be almost exclusively tweets that people can roll through, with just a few posts here and there commenting on the minor stuff that's without a thread or undeserving of one. 

 

So, for example, a tweet mentions the defensive coordinator search and you'd like to comment on it? What do you do? Take it to the numerous threads on the matter, PERIOD. 

 

How about a tweet from some random player talking about their offseason vacation in Dubai and you'd like to comment about the time you spent there? Sure, have at it. 

 

If you have any doubt or are unsure if the topic is being discussed elsewhere, avoid posting. Err on the side of caution, as the Mods will be swift with the penalties here to ensure everyone gets it. It's that simple. DO NOT turn this into a thread where discussions, arguments, or debates are had. 

 

----------------------------------------------------

 

Ok, that's the big one. A few other items of importance: 

 

1) Hap and SWFL have volunteered and dedicated way more time to

this endeavor than any of us deserved. So we want this to be more of a joint effort from the ES community. Duplicates aren't the end of the world, just contribute if you'd like to share a tweet/s that is Redskins related and you don't think it was posted already. 

 

2) Remember Rule 11, don't quote pics/vids/large chunks of text. We've already stated that tweets are allowed to be quoted, but keep in mind that the rule still applies to multiple ones that take up a significant portion of the page. Don't quote a post with ten tweets because you want to comment on one. In a thread like this one  it's very important to follow this rule and avoid the clutter a lack of adherence to this rule could easily create. 

 

3) If you'd like to tweet a comment made by an ES poster here, there are three things you can do to ensure proper sourcing:

 

  A)  Place the comment in quotes and then hashtag their username as well as Extremeskins (for example... "The comment made by an ES poster would go here" #Username #Extremeskins)

 

  B ) Place the comment in quotes and then provide a link to the post (for example... "The comment made by an ES poster would go here" extremeskins.com/post...) 

 

  C) Per TK, simply tweet the link to the post. 

 

4) Have fun and don't be idiots. :D 

 

Now let's get this thing rolling!

So....make sure I understand correctly:

 

 

Let's say there's a tweet posted here saying we're thinking of interviewing Rex Ryan as DC.

 

I want to comment on it. Normally I would quote the tweet and say "Good God, NO!"

 

Instead, I should now find a thread about the DC search, or about Rex Ryan, and post my thought/reaction there.

 

So I go to one of those threads and say "Good God, NO!"

 

Nobody on the other thread knows WTF I'm talking about lol...

 

So I copy the tweet from this thread, post it on the other thread, and then say "Good God, NO!"

 

Or....

 

I see a tweet on my twitter account that was posted 30 seconds ago saying the Redskins are thinking of interviewing Rex Ryan as DC.

 

I copy it and, instead of posting it here, I post it on one of the other threads talking about the Redskins' DC search because I want a discussion to follow (and then say "Good God, NO!" afterwards), and just let Hap or SWFL take care of posting it here.

 

Or perhaps I post it both places.

 

I treat this thread as a tweet database.

 

 

Did I get it right? lol....

Actually with Twitter's 140 character limit, the link (back to someone's original ES post) alone should be enough. 

 

Now, what the hell is Cali talking about? :kickcan:

@Califan007 That's a good question. In my head, I just figured we can say something like "saw a tweet posted in the twitter thread that said Redskins are interviewing Rex Ryan. Good God No!!!" 

 

Or something to that effect. Or you can just copy and paste it. But I figured just mentioning it would be enough. People can then go see the tweet if they want to.

Seems hardly a month goes by in the last few seasons that Seattle doesn't benefit from a complete WHAT the HELL was THAT call at home.

 

#Browns announce RG3 entering concussion protocol after viewing #Dolphins Matt Moore getting creamed by #Steelers linebacker

 

#Lions say they felt there might be a problem after noticing #SeahawksNFL_Seav2.png sideline replay booth just an ATM machine with a curtain around it

 

 

Playoff Eli completed 52.2% of his passes for 6.8 yards/attempt and posted a 72 passer rating. Missing Playoff Coach Coughlin perhaps?

Has been mentioned as a potential Redskins stadium site, but only mentioned. Still, at least it has some land that is scarce.

I don't think you can delete it at least I've never had any luck doing so.
