      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.

Let's organize a protest at/near Redskins Park - I mean, we have nothing to lose!

Maybe it might seem like too much, but it is OUR responsibility as fans to do something when the front office takes such a suicidal approach.

 

What ownership/management has messed up royally with:

-Keeping Allen over McLoughan. Sure, Allen is great at the business part, but he sucks at the football part.

-We've now lost our Quarterback. He's made it clear that he doesn't want to be here.

 

What we want:

-Allen gone and McLoughan promoted. Allen is a cancer to this organization, and could cost us our elite GM and great QB. 

 

I don't know what good it would do, but worst case scenario we hang out on a sunny saturday by Redskins Park, maybe play a little touch football. Who knows!?

 

Oh yeah, and don't renew your season tickets. Hit Snyder where it hurts.

I'm all for voicing displeasure to the powers that be about current events, but expending the effort to stand out there physically protesting the football team is where I draw the line on "how much do I REALLY care".

Now is not the time. Not at the start of free agency. Whatever rumors and media speculation might end up being true and however bad of shape we might be in. Doing this now will only make things in Free Agency worse.

I think stuff like this is important, even if it's only for the fanbase's psyche. It at least lets the rest of the world know that the fans still have an emotional stake in all this and are not blindly jumping on the Oblivion Bandwagon. I hope the turnout is huge.

And if you still have tickets, sell them to the opposing team's fans. :D

I am 50 years old on Monday 13th of March, I will gladly let all you fellow Skins club together to pay for me a plane ticket and hotel and I will personally wait for however long it takes and force Allen to tell me what the ---- is he doing to our team. By the way I'm from Bolton, England so it won't cost that much . Fingers crossed 😆

Apolitically maybe we can tweet to someone in DC and ask him to make the Redskins Great Again.

Maybe he can convince DC to claim the team under eminent domain

Team still gets their cut of Rev Sharing. Yeah, bad gate is a big deal. But this picture doesn't show the people who paid for tickets in the spring. Their money is already banked.

Can't y'all just mail back the fan cards you all made up and mailed in during Fassalgate?

 

I mean, that was really affective and important and I'm sure they mailed them back to you because they took it serious.

 

I hope everyone who actually does protest the team, dresses like clowns.

Stop going to games!! What are you rooting for??? There is NO HOPE with Dan Snyder at the helm.  None.  Zilch.  Nada.  Forget about it *mafia voice* Paying that slime bucket Snyder to attend games to watch the horse**** he feeds us is asinine!  Buying merchandise is asinine.  Being a "fan" at this point is asinine.  Asinine, I tell ya!
