      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.

Moose & Squirrel v Boris & Natasha: what's the deal with the rooskies and trumpland?

I'm a tad confused at the title, aren't we in a cartoon where the moose and squirrel are in active collusion with Boris and Natasha instead of a -vs- situation?

 

In this case the squirrel is perched atop the villain's head.

Huh?  He can't be impeached for claiming voter fraud.  

 

What part of the dossier claims is impeachable?

 

 

Actively supporting and participating in an illegal hacking operation. 

 

Colluding with a foreign nation hostile to U.S. interests to fraudulently sway the results of a U.S. election.

 

Hiring prostitutes. 

 

Damaging hotel property.

 

For starters.

Colluding with an enemy state to influence U.S. policies and a general election is treasonous.

 

I see Republican reluctance to have Congressional investigations seems to me an effort to shield Pence in the end, because Trump may not last through the entire term. 

 

If the Dems can get it together for the 2018 elections, I see impeachment proceedings during the last two years and Dems win in 2020. And our Republic survives.

I doubt any of those are true, proveable or impeachable.

 

I do think the key would be to prove bribery.  But I'm not sure if him accepting a bribe BEFORE he was POTUS would qualify.

The "Actively supporting and participating in an illegal hacking operation to sway the the U.S. election" sounds alot like watergate to me so I think that would be impeachable.

If anything were to ever happen (and that's the big if because it won't), I'd expect more of a mutiny than an impeachment. 

 

Section 4 of the 25th amendment

 

Quote

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.[3]

If it could be proven that Trump hacked the DNC, while POTUS, then yeah.

Apples and Oranges.  If this info had come up before the election, it certainly would have been used (appropriately) as an example of Trump's disqualifications to serve.

 

Careful, mentioning the H word will bring out the TDSers.

Didn't the dossier come out before the election? 

 

Doh. It came out in early January. Seems like months ago.

If Pence could pull this off, he should be carved into Mt Rushmore immediately.

Towards the end when it was all just white noise.  The Clinton thing played because it was early and it reinforced a preconceived belief of her nature.

It really is the only logical way to dethrone Trump. Of course it requires cats and dogs to agree that the oversized kangaroo is worth getting rid of.

What are you talking about the russian connection was brought up ad-nauseum during the campaign, I guess it wasn't used appropriately.

 

You're really the only one bringing up H it must be awful to be an republican and not have your favorite whipping boy around, gosh you mean republican's might actually have to govern now instead of witchhunts and blaming everything on Dems.

 

TDSers? what's that Trump Down Syndrome

I could see him resigning if enough of his inner circle is forced out or he gets tired of losing.

I could see that.  He could get tired of it all and proclaim in 12 months that he's done what he came to do and America is now back to being great again.

Correct.  It want used appropriately.

 

Im not bringing up H.  Im bringing up what the concerns were regarding her alleged connections through the Clinton Foundation, and how unsavory they seemed.  If the Dems could have tied the same line of thought to Trumps Russian connection, it would have played like the Clinton issue did.  The Dems (moreson Hillary's campaign) failed to make the connection for voters.
