      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.

Helton is doing his best Shar Pordanish impression by blaming everybody but himself in his head.

Mike Stock is watching old teams of the Special Olympics for idea's on how to get his guys to play better.

Ramsey is telling himself that he could of won yesterday

Bruce is indeed getting more coins printed.

Dan Snyder is sniffing ether under his desk and starting to believe he's never lost to Dallas.

And Brucey would proceed to march his overpaid ass up to Danny's office to whine. :cry:

And it would be the last day he ever suited up for the Skins. That, or I would be fired and on the way out, I would give danny the whistle. Which is probably what he really wants anyway.

well isn't this what everyone wanted? to get good draft picks? people seemed alitte miffed last week when we won...

WHAT???? Losnig to Dallas at home like that doesn't count when talking about draft picks. If it was a tough loss to the Rams or some ****, then it would be okay, because we may get a better pick. But a shut-out, home loss to the most hated team in the NFL isn't anything to be happy about. F the draft position...we the **** kicked out of us by the damn Cowboys!!

They are packing their belongings going home for the offseason, whats the point on hanging around and showing up for the next 2 games. It is not like they are going to play for pride or anything as unimportant like that. This bunch of losers are just playing out the season, they lose the next 2 games they don't give a rats a$$ they are getting paid and home for the Holidays. Merry Christmas

The Christmas spirit is in full-swing at fedex field:

Lavar's Xmas shopping will be in the free agent market, where he will find a new team that will bring he and his family (?) some happiness.

Then..."Tiny Tim" Hasselbeck stands up on his crutches and says, "God bless us, everyone." He then goes on to buy his leading reciever from yesterday's game a gift. The card reads- 'Dear Mr. Terence Newmann- Thanks for catching all of my passes!'

Ramsey has been shopping round the clock for a nice boot to fit over his newly-repaired foot. "Something in muave would be nice," he says to himself. "Hmmm...," he thinks. "Then I would need a muave armsling, a muave finger splint, a muave kneee brace, and an overall muave bodycast."

Darrell Russell is busy in the black Market. He and his new buddy, Byron Chamberlain, have started a holiday business to sell ephedra online. (in case you're interested, it's called overweight_hasbeens.com). They are making good profits so far!

And Snyder...well...he was visted by three ghosts...the first of which, the ghost of Xmas past, was a visit from JKC. He revealed how it was to win superbowls to Snyder. It was an amazing trip that brought Snyder down memory lane.

He has yet to be visited by other ghosts.
