      Cowboys versus Redskins - now that just sounds correct.
       
      Hello friends, JimmiJo here along with THE Spaceman Spiff. Space is already on the sidelines, yucking it up with the important people. Me? I'm thinking how grateful I am for the 3-car accident on the beltway...
       
      If you cannot get up for this game, there isn't enough viagra made on earth for you. After all; the Redskins are hosting their eternal rival, the Cowboys. Winner will be sitting on top of the division, with a truckload of bragging rights.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Well, for starters, everybody and their mom is inactive. Chris Thompson Jamison Crowder, Paul Richardson, Quinton Dunbar; all inactive. What a time to have have your top two receivers out. The chatter here in the press box is Washington should do what they can to bring in receivers - to include making a trade with the Raiders for Amari Cooper.
       
      Then there's the question of which Redskins show up? They could come out and light Dallas up. Or, post an anemic effort to suffer another embarrassing lost. Neither would surprise me.
       
      One this is for sure, the distribution in fans is something like 55-45 Redskins. Already an embarrassment. Until you consider this team has done much to earn the lack of support.
       
      Still, you have offer the finger in the middle to those fans who sold their tickets to Dallas fans. What were you thinking?
       
      Back shortly...
       
      Inactives
       
      The Redskins declared the following players as inactive:
      o   No. 10 WR Paul Richardson Jr.
      o   No. 23 CB Quinton Dunbar
      o   No. 25 RB Chris Thompson
      o   No. 30 S Troy Apke
      o   No. 55 C Casey Dunn
      o   No. 74 T Geron Christian Sr.
      o   No. 80 WR Jamison Crowder
       
      The team held a touching tribute to my friend Rich Tandler, who passed this week.

      Half
       
      Did you hear the one about the team that got chance after chance but couldn't score more than a touchdown?
      That's right; they are tied at 7 at the half and completely anemic in the second half.
       
      "Against the run of play" is a term you hear in soccer all the time. It is applicable here. It means the better team is either tied or trailing.
       
      Whoever said football was fair?
       
      Washington needs to find a way to get hot in the second half. The Dallas Cowboys are infinitely beatable today.

      How do you like them apples?
      The Washington Redskins sent them home happy today. Along the way my ulcer started bleeding, I threw up twice, and peed the chair I was sitting in.
      Up by 10 at the two-minute warning, I did not expect to be hoping for a missed field goal to avoid overtime. But there I was, crossing fingers and toes and noticibly relieved when the ball bounced off the upright to seal the win.
      A lot of things had to go right for the Dallas Cowboys to even have a shot at the end. A lot more things went right for Washington.
      The Redskins held Ezekiel Elliot to just 33-yards rushing. They forced two fumbles by Dak Prescott, one of which went for a Redskins' touchdown, and sacked him a total of four times. 
      Ryan Kerrigan had his best day of the season, sacking Prescott twice, one of which caused the fumble for the score. Preston Smith scored the touchdown off of the fumble. Jonathan Allen and and Ryan Anderson each logged a sack. DJ Swearinger hit Prescott square on the ball to cause the other fumble by Prescott.
      And then there was the offense.
      Adrian Peterson defies time and physics in what he can still do on the football field. His ability to change directions instantly, the speed he still posesses, and his ability to play through multiple injuries is astonishing. He ran for 99-yards on 24-carries with a 4.1 yard per carry average. 
      Kapri Bibbs, the other back; added just 13-yards rushing. But as a receiver he caught 4 passes for 43-yards and the first touchdown of the game.
      Josh Doctson reeled in 3-receptions for 43-yards. Jordan Reed added 43-yards on his two catches. Maurice Harris logged 2 for 22-yards.
      Alex Smith had a adequate outting. He went 14/25 for 178 yards and a touchdown for a quarterback rating of 98.1. He was sacked once.
      His obvious miss of Jeremy Sprinkle running free in the end zone is almost cause for termination. Connect on that throw and the game is much more comfortable at the end. 
      The real stars of this show were the fat guys in the trenches. The offensive line that opened highway lane-wide holes for Peterson to run through, and the defensive line that wreaked such havok all game. 
       
      But we have to thank Dallas as well for things like an illegal snap to back the field goal unit up at the end. The holding call that negated the big gain one play before the sack/fumble/score was huge. They seemed to find ways to beat themselves.
       
      Despite the above, Dallas was right there until last miss that struck the goalpost. The win was entirely too close for comfort.
       
      But now that's it's over, I sure am enjoying the win.
       
      The Redskins sit alone at the top of the division after 6-weeks. They travel to New York next week where they can continue to help themselves with a win.
       
      But just because New York currently resides in the toilet does not mean they intend to roll-over and play dead. Washington will have their hands full if they don't get more production out of the offense.
       
      That's next week though. For now, I am intent on  enjoying an excellent victory. Against the Dallas Cowboys.
       
      What's not to like?
       
      Talk soon!

Why didn't she report it to the police? I find her credible but I believe the threats were actually compliments.

Middle school "son of Fergasun" is learning about introductory logic... and their debate topic this week was Kavanuagh and whether or not past incidents or false accusations should keep you from serving in high government positions (kind of a false premise because Circuit Judge is already high).

He is in a Christian based schooling program, and he was the only person that argues on the con side. His argument was, "How do you know Kavanaugh is not lying?" We also discussed the example of King David, who was repentitent for his sin.

I am convinced Kavanaugh and his friends know Dr. Ford and are covering up her sexual assault (I think it could have been Judge or someone else in that circle) -- especially reading some of the compelling insights former GP classmates shared. I am also convinced Kavanaugh is lying about the Ramirez incident.

I think the GOP is signaling the "boys will be boys" defense on this which is also disgusting. This is why they let one of them vote NO... it was Murkowski who drew the long straw.

The fact that the FBI did such a weak investigation is like Police Chief Wiggam on the Simpsons saying, "Notging to see here folks...." (I know and when he saw the fire he proceeded to tell everyone about it...).

I wouldn't trust the Dems to trot these people out with their stories. It'll fall back on them. If it comes out, they should say that it's sad and refer questions to the FBI and Admin. That's it. Otherwise, it'll blow-up in their faces. No doubt. 

 

It's like the Dave Chappelle skit on R. Kelly. All the items of proof still won't be enough. 

the GOP spent years investigating Benghazi.

 

Spent a decade investigating Whitewater to find that he got head from Lewinsky.

 

I need to know why this would blow up in their face? at this point, eff being scared of the GOP.

Again.  I want to see a full investigation into every allegation.  Over the past few days though, a few left leaning posters have tried to create limits though or say why that wouldnt be possible.  Strange.

Because their base isn't the same as the base making excuses for Roy Moore or Trump paying off pornstar. 

 

"lock her up" is still chanted. Wtf is that?

How in the hell are 23% of Democrats  not "very motivated" to vote? I guess some people just say I'm a Democrat, and call it a day.

Every time I see an editorial about Dem vs Repub excitement to vote, I go back to an earlier article that the number of people who identify themselves as Republican keeps decreasing.  So I am not sure if these articles are accounting for that.  One flaw in these articles is it isn't accounting for people who are unaffiliated or at least claim to be when surveyed.  

 

In the end, turnout is all that matters.  I vote every time regardless of my "excitement level."

Please enlighten me.  He has been calling for full investigations for a bit now.  Maybe he isn't the one with an agenda.

What would be something is if we had full investigations and the Dems managed to flip the House and the Senate. Trump would lose his mind.  Wait... umm... if Trump lost his mind would anybody notice the difference?

Depends on who they have to vote for, I imagine.  Having a D next to your name shouldn't be a free vote.

Some posters may be wondering if he has been arguing in good faith, or if it's just a tactic wherein one takes an extreme position that they do not believe in and then attacks others for not going as far as they say they would, while knowing such a thing would never come to pass or that to do so would be harmful to those doing it.

For what purpose? Ford doesn't want to press charges now, nor did she ever. 

 

Is someone actually arguing that the Democratic party is interested in justice rather then just doing what's politically expedient?

I could be wrong but I believe he was saying full investigation the whole time.  That seems a little more genuine to me.

It's interesting to see the varied responses. There's probably at least some truth to all of them. I just figured this would be an all hands on deck kind of situation, but nah... some aren't feeling completely motivated yet. What does a self-identifying Dem need to find that motivation at this point? Maybe crowdfunding gift certificates to future marijuana dispensaries (or something else compelling) for proof of  an "I Voted" sticker to this supposed 23% could get some of them enthused. Just spit-balling.

Third largest country on earth, I wouldn't expect someone's reason in Alaska to be the same as NOVA.  Its hard to say without having an idea of where those people are.  Being in a district you know will go red is another one, its hard to convince people otherwise, about as much as accepting in some cases they are right.

Under most circumstances I'd probably agree with you and give the person the benefit of the doubt, but it's a bit difficult for me in this instance when his (especially recent) posting history has seemed very much adversarial in favor of Rs and Trump. I'm not saying there's necessarily anything wrong with that..it's his opinion...but an apparent sudden shift away from that along with the "a few left leaning posters have tried to create limits though or say why that wouldnt be possible.  Strange." comment makes me feel like it really hasn't a good faith argument. If I'm wrong (and I certainly have been in the past) then I owe him an apology.
