      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

The CIA, the entirety of the U.S. Intelligence Community, and even the Republican controlled senate all agree that Russia actively worked to assist Trump in the election. You sound like a dumbass.

And not a one of them said it influenced any election result. In fact, to date, they've said it had no effect.

 

Your opinion of me, and 25 cents, will by you a nickel, and two dimes.

I would love 1 “defense” of the Trump administration without the words Obama, Hillary, Clinton, deep state, Comey and whatever other state run boogie man is out there. 

Successful economic and deregulatory practices - so far (still think Tariffs may reverse that). Does that count as a defense? (But he hasn't done anything other than said Tariffs, in those areas that any other Republican wouldn't have done).

Rosenstein said it. And he seems to want it to have, as much as any lefty alive.

http://dailycaller.com/2018/07/13/rosenstein-no-allegation-hacking-changed-vote-count/

 

Rosnstein said there was no allegation in the specific indictments he was referencing, which is a lot different than your assertion that Russia didn’t impact the election. Because the intel community and the Senate invesigation has asserted they did.

Quote

Tuesday's report touched on several facets of Russia's election interference, including its social-media disinformation campaign, Russian President Vladimir Putin's intentions in ordering the influence campaign, government-linked hacking and cyberattacks, and Russia's use of its state media outlets to spread misinformation. 

The ICA said that while Moscow had long sought to undermine the Western world order, its election meddling represented "a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort compared to previous operations." 

Tuesday's report cited details that have come to light since the January 2017 report as further supporting the ICA's conclusions, including: 

  • Russia's extensive use of a notorious troll farm, the Internet Research Agency, to conduct a widespread social-media disinformation campaign. 
  • Russia's hack of the Democratic National Committee before the election. 
  • Russia's attempts to breach critical election infrastructure shortly before Election Day 2016. 
  • The panel also said it had gained additional insights into Russia's interference from interviews of key figures as part of its own Russia investigation.

 

 

I, of course, understand that this kind of thing doesnt get reported on the Daily Caller.

Well, of course you would. You must be choosing to believe every "boogeyman" thrown at Trump, while wishing to silence any challenge to them.

 

That's a pure lefty tactic. They want everyone, and anyone who doesn't worship at their altar, to be silenced, drawn, and quartered.

Luckily, there are two sides to a coin.

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos allegedly said the students who booed her May 2017 commencement speech at a historically black college didn't have the "capacity to understand" what she wants to accomplish, according to the tell-all book by former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman. 

Manigault Newman describes DeVos' comments during a conversation with her after the May address at Florida's Bethune-Cookman University as "meaning, all those black students were too stupid to understand her agenda." 

Manigault Newman trashes DeVos throughout the book and calls her "woefully inadequate and not equipped for her job." She alleges President Donald Trump referred to the education secretary as "Ditzy DeVos" and promised to "get rid of her" after the Bethune-Cookman event. 

In the book, "Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House," Manigault Newman also blames DeVos for confusion around an annual conference in D.C. for historically black colleges and universities, which the administration downsized in September 2017. She writes that DeVos was the "number one driver for cancellation."

You've gone from "There was no interference" to "No votes were changed" really quickly. Without ever admitting how wrong you were in the first place.

There was no interference (that mattered) because no votes were changed. And yes, I can turn off the light and get in bed before the room gets dark. Fast!

 

But you keep playing message board shenanigans. Because independent thinking, common sense, and realism doesn't seem to be your forte.

I’m so tired of seeing this thread hijacked for a couple days so we can let this moronic sheep peddle his lies and talking points while I watch you all try to debate and reason with him. 

 

You cant debate with him because he doesn’t debate in reality. Truth, reason and facts are whatever he wants them to be. He has proven with every post that he is not worth the time so can we all please just move on and ignore this Fox News troll.

asking how it could or could not have impacted the election is a who knows deal.

 

 

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/how-much-did-russian-interference-affect-the-2016-election/

 

I for one believe Cruz woulda been POTUS.

 

Your link is saying that it’s impossible to measure. Here’s the conclusion:

 

Quote

But if it’s hard to prove anything about Russian interference, it’s equally hard to disprove anything: The interference campaign could easily have had chronic, insidious effects that could be mistaken for background noise but which in the aggregate were enough to swing the election by 0.8 percentage points toward Trump — not a high hurdle to clear because 0.8 points isn’t much at all.

With all due respect, that's all meaningless drivel. Russian disinformation is no different than the disinformation spewed by both political party's.

no one needed the Russians to tell them that Hillary was terrible candidate. Loathed by her own party, though they were obligated to support her after buying her off in 2008. And, as equally despicable as Trump. She got her ass kicked by a completely unqualified Obama in 2008, (because of his race). So, getting her ass kicked again in 2016 is no surprise, at all. Except to the media who did everything in their power to get her elected.

Of all the people I know who voted for Trump, not one of them was accompanied to the polls by a Russian.

It's one of the wildest comedies ever pushed by the left.

Well this is some impressive revisionist history. She won the popular vote by 4 million votes despite a foreign enemy interfering. 

 

I rhink you also checked every box in the conservative victim card in that one post. :806:

 

 

Edit:  okay, ill stop feeding the troll now. :kickcan:
