      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!

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:

Considering how far in the tank the media was for her, yeah, it was an ass whoopin'.

And without the guaranteed support from the Peoples Republic of California, the "popular vote" shriek is even more meaningless.

Nate said a lot more words than could. The point of the article isnt that nobody knows if Russia’s interference had any impact on the election. His point is that it is impossible to quantify using statistical metrics (which is what 538 does).

We have resident examples of this in @tshile & @TheGreatBuzz. I particularly like their opinions on this kind of stuff. Yall wanna comment? 

Depends on who the Left puts up.  I wont just give away my vote to beat Trump.  But I could be swayed as long as they aren't TOO far left.  A Hillary type without the baggage and fake-ness.

Would you go for a just as fake Hillary type without the fakeness? I ask because I think that's what we are going to have to live with.

Out of the 10 or so perceived front runners, who do you define as too far left?

The old “I wasn’t accompanied by a Russian at the polls” defense. Man, that’s a new level of stupid. And if you don’t like the response, you’re more than welcome to say things that aren’t stupid.

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. 

I’ve said over and over that Trump won because of Hillary.  Of COURSE that’s the “defense” of Trump.  It’s why people voted for him.

Can we throw out the deep South ans/or Texas support for all GOP candidates too then? Or is it only Dem support you want to discount?

I'm confused how you can just as fake without the fakeness so I can't answer this.

I honestly haven't been paying attention to potential frontrunners because it is so far out.  If you give me a name or two I'll look and give my opinion.

Just going by a recent frontrunner ranking,

 

Sanders, Warren, Biden, Harris.  Would you support any of them?  Or what about my dream pick, Mark Warner? (Run damn you!!)

I've been saying that Trump is the Republican version of Obama for a year (politically inept) - if there are Blue waives that will confirm it. (And Trump will deservedly get the blame).

Trump is so much more than politically inept.

 She got her ass kicked by a completely unqualified Obama in 2008, (because of his race).

Oh FFS. Seriously? You really think he won because he was black and had an odd name?

I think they voted for him based on charisma, anger, and as a general FU to the system. No one had to vote for him because of Hillary, they could have voted Independent or not voted. Really no excuse for it, he showed us who he was and now we have an idiot President making us look like fools.

It was down to him and Cruz (or you can add Rubio if you want to go further back). The base was bent on choosing the nut candidate who told them the same things Limbaugh and Hannity had been telling them for years. And Trump recognized that and gave them what they wanted. Fantasy become reality.

And how does that explain Trump''s current approval rating amongst "Republicans" or how only 32% of them believe that Russia interfered in the election, 71% approve of the way Trump is handling Russia, or how half of "Republican" voters believe that the media is the enemy of the people or how most Republican are in favor of separating immigrant families, or how they endlessly defend the idiot at every turn?

 

Only Trump, Cruz, Rubio, and Kasich received a significant amount of votes. It was a four person race from the start and Trump whooped everyone's ass. Number two was Ted Cruz who is the next biggest piece of **** on stage. I know it's comforting to tell yourself but it's just not true. The GOP base's minds are warped and the Republican Party is now the party of Trump.
