The goal is to give readers a handy spot to check the Redskins beat writers & bloggers, and national sports journalists to keep up on the latest news about the Redskins, the NFL, and sports in general, along with a sprinkling of other stuff.NFL News twitter feed:Tweets from Неверный потребительский ключ в конфигурации twitter feed:Tweets from Неверный потребительский ключ в конфигурации The 5 o’clock club is published Wednesday to Saturday during the season, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.HollywoodThere is a movie that I have watched dozens of times because it plays repeatedly on one of the half-dozen or so English-language channels I get on cable here in Thailand; it’s called The Last Samurai.It’s not the greatest movie of all time, but it has its moments.One of my favorite parts of the movie is a story told by Captain Algren (played by Tom Cuise).He tells the story in two parts, the first part being given prior to a battle that seems hopeless, and the end of the story being given near the end of the battle when all seems lost.Captain Algren, Captain James Tiberius Kirk, Captain Jack Sparrow... these guys have never seen a fight they thought they should run away from.They suffer setbacks, sure, but these guys fight the good fight, and I admire that spirit.LegendsI grew up with the legend of John Paul Jones, standing on the deck of the Bonhomme Richard bellowing to the captain of the Serapis, “I have not yet begun to fight.”The long and glorious tradition that dates back, at least, to the Greeks at Thermopylae Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , and then on to the fictional Captain Jack Sparrow and the very real John Paul Jones, to the Prime Minister of England, Winston Churchill, who uttered those famous words, “Never give up, never give in”, to the 23rd century space explorer who beat the Kobayashi Maru — I admire the tradition of fighting on no matter the odds.I know it’s more of a modern thing to predict failure so one can later point and say, “I told you so” but my makeup is different... my DNA rebels against that.Virginians cross the Deleware River in the middle of winter on Christmas night in rowboats to attack the Hessians and turn the tide of the war, despite a string of defeats and low morale.George Washington had big brass ones.As Knute Rockne would remind us, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”Things look grimThe Redskins have faced a run of very bad fortune.One only needs to look at the IR list to get a sense of how bad.It started, probably, in earnest, back in preseason when the team lost Derrius Guice.Still, the Redskins were able to hold things together and win 6 of their first 9 games, but the first of several gut punches was when Brandon Scherff was lost for the season.That day saw the Redskins offensive line options diminish rapidly and dramatically.The kick in the teeth came when Alex Smith’s leg was snapped in the game against the Texans, and the final kick in the balls was when something similar knocked Colt McCoy out of the Cowboys game, and possibly the rest of the season.Mark Sanchez was absolutely horrible in his start against the Giants on Sunday.But in the third quarter, Jay Gruden put Sanchez on the bench and brought Josh Johnson into the game.Johnson, a 32-year-old journeyman quarterback who hadn’t thrown an NFL regular season pass since Barack Obama’s first term in office Ryan Anderson Jersey , seemed an unlikely hero, but it was as if a light switch had been turned on.The previously moribund offense came to life.The Redskins pushed the ball downfield.After being shut out for the entire game, the team punched in two touchdowns and a pair of two-point conversions.After the game, Jay Gruden didn’t hesitate when asked if Josh Johnson would start this week against the Jaguars in Jacksonville.The Redskins are about to start their 4th different quarterback of the season.Let’s have a look at what James Dorsett had to say about Josh Johnson’s performance against the New York Football Giants:I’m uniqueBack in 2012, I saw Josh Johnson play in a preseason game, and I instantly thought that the Redskins should sign him as RG3’s backup.He seemed to be the perfect guy to come off the bench for Griffin.Griffin is 6’2”, 213 pounds and very mobile.Johnson is 6’3”, 219 pounds and very mobile.I still remember the sort of ‘shock and awe’ that Robert Griffin was able to drop on the New Orleans Saints in the Redskins season opener with rookie QB Griffin making his first NFL start.The offense was a fast-paced, mobile attack that used the threat of Griffin as a runner.The Shanahans devised an offense that cut the field in half, limited Griffin’s reads, and created stress on the defense by making them defend the Alfred Morrise run, the Griffin rollout and the pass on every single play.I saw hints of that offense with Josh Johnson in the 4th quarter last Sunday.Jay knows Josh; he coached him in 2013 when Johnson was with the Bengals, and it was apparent this past week that Johnson isn’t particularly rusty.With another week to prepare, I wonder if Jay and Josh can put together a mobile, fast-paced offensive attack reminiscent of Kyle & Robert’s 2012 season.I’m not thinking that it’sa very sophisticated attack — just enough to make the Redskins competitive against the Jacksonville Jaguars, pretty much the only team in the NFL that has played worse football than the Redksins over the past several weeks.The Wildcard WatchLast year, starting in Week 9, I wrote a weekly article on the 5 o’clock club called the Wildcard Watch in which I took alook week-by-week at the teams that were in the wildcard hunt in the NFC.I had planned to do the same thing this year starting in Week 12.I actually had the article all set up and ready to go, but in the wake of Alex’s injury, I decided not to publish it.This late in the season Fabian Moreau Jersey , the wildcard hunt is mathematically open for a lot of teams, but the practicalities make it a fairly small group.In the NFC, we’re talking about 5 teams that are fighting for one spot.Seattle has not actually locked up the first wildcard mathematically, but they have the 49ers and Cardinals left, so let’s say they probably win 10 games and secure the #5 seed.That leaves the following teams chasing the 6th seed:Vikings 6-6-1 host Miami this weekPanthers 6-7 host the SaintsEagles 6-7 visit the RamsRedskins 6-7 travel to JacksonvillePackers 5-7-1 visit ChicagoThat’s 5 teams that are struggling.Every team except the Packers is on a losing streak, with the Panthers having dropped 5 in a row and the Vikings firing their offensive coordinator after being shut out for 58 minutes by the Seahawks.Amazingly, among these five teams, the Redskins probably have the best chance of getting a win in Week 15. The Eagles may be starting Nick Foles against the Rams, as Carson Wentz is reported to be suffering back spasms this week.As crazy as it sounds, if the Vikings fall to Miami, who just beat the Patriots, and the Redskins prevail against the Jaguars (who have lost 8 of their last 9 games, and may have Cody Kessler under center), then the Redskins could replace the Vikings as the current 6th seed.Then the Redskins just have to play the final two games, one week at a time.The 300Don’t mistake my attitude as being blind optimism or simple stupidity. I understand the situation; I simply don’t admire capitulation.Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory!Braves on the Warpath! Fight for old D.C.!Run or pass and score—We want a lot more! Beat ‘em, Swamp ‘em,Touchdown! -- Let the points soar! Fight on, fight on ‘Til you have wonSons of Wash-ing-ton.
