Cardinals 31, Redskins 23

The Cardinals knocked off the Redskins 31-23 today in Glendale.  The Cardinals improve to 5-6-1 on the season with this win.  The Cardinals razor thin playoff hopes remain alive for at least another week.  With just 4 games left, they are going to have to run the table to have a chance.  This was probably the most complete game the Cardinals have played in several weeks.  I think they still have a run in them, I just hope they didn't wait too long to wake up from their slumber.

Cowboys 17, Vikings 15

The Vikings lost to the Cowboys 17-15 tonight in Minneapolis.  The Vikings fall to 6-6 on the season with this loss.  The Vikings playoff hopes are dwindling by the week.  Nothing seems to have gone right for them after that great 5-0 start to the season.  Their defense is keeping them in games, but the lack of touchdowns is killing them (field goals will only take you so far).  Week after week it's the same thing too. Very discouraging to watch.

Election Recount?

Have you heard?  They are going to recount the Presidential election results in Wisconsin, and perhaps Michigan and Pennsylvania.   Donald Trump is not happy about it either.  I'm wondering what he is so concerned about.  Generally, I'm not a fan of recounts but something is not smelling right about this past election and I fully support a recount.  I'm not expecting the results to change but I do want some peace of mind knowing that we do have the right person sitting in the White House (unlike in the 2000 election).

Lets take a look at some of the evidence:
  • Hillary Clinton's popular vote lead is climbing towards 2.5 million votes.  That's unprecedented for someone who lost the electoral college.  
  • All of the polls prior to the election had Hillary Clinton with a clear path to victory.  Not just a few of the polls, all of them.  Statistically, what are the chances of someone winning all of the polls then losing the actual election?  It can't be too high.  
  • Exit polls showed a clear edge to Hillary Clinton.  Doesn't it seem odd that when people left the polling places they indicated that they had voted for Hillary Clinton then when the votes were counted Donald Trump actually came out on top?  
  • Russian hackers were actively attacking the Democratic party and state election sites.  How is it out of the question that they could have hacked a few state sites and implanted some malware that change the votes then destruct after the vote had been counted?   Edward Snowden thinks it's possible and plausible.  Anomalies have been found too. 
  • There have been rumors of a Trump server communicating directly with Russia.  Isn't it a bit odd that the Trump team was communicating directly with a nation that we know has been hacking our elections?   
Add all of the above together and isn't there a compelling case to support a vote recount?   I think so.

Falcons 38, Cardinals 19

The Cardinals fell to the Falcons 38-19 today in Atlanta.  The Cardinals drop to 4-6-1 after this loss.  Their slim playoff hopes became even slimmer.  I have to imagine they would need to sweep their remaining 5 games to have even any sort of shot at the playoffs (and even that would be no certainty).  Things have just never really clicked with this team this year, they've been outplayed and out-coached numerous times.  I just think they got a bit full of themselves over the past offseason and didn't put in the work they need to (and that applies to the front office, coaches and players).

Wisconsin 31, Minnesota 17

The Gophers fell to the Badgers 31-17 today in Madison.  The Gophers close their regular season with an 8-4 record.  The Gophers led 17-7 at halftime and were leading into the fourth quarter, bad Mitch Leidner showed up though and threw 4 horrible interceptions in the second half and the Gophers had no chance.  I'm glad I will only need to sit through one more game of Mitch Leidner as Gopher QB, I was expecting much more from a 5th year Senior QB.  All 4 of the Gopher loses followed the same script too, it was very disheartening to watch.

Arizona 56, Arizona State 35

The Sun Devils fell to the University of Arizona 56-35 last night in Tucson.  The Sun Devils close out their 2016 season with a 5-7 record.  The Sun Devils lost their last 7 games of the season.  Needless to say, there will be no bowl games this year for the Sun Devils.  That will end their streak of five straight bowl games.  Personally, I wouldn't be upset if this was Todd Graham's last season in Tempe, but I'm not betting on it.  They have gotten worse each of the last four years, they were historically bad on defense and their offense was incredibly inconsistent, plus they got their asses handed to them by their most hated rival (who themselves have been pretty miserable this season).  I just really dislike the style of play he employs on both sides of the ball. I thought the coaching staff turnover last offseason was also a very telling sign about Coach Graham. Move on already Ray Anderson, we've seen enough.
