      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!

Haha the looks on the faces of the various world leaders earlier when she was trying to insert herself into their conversation. "For ****'s sake, GTFO you nitwit...you know nothing about this. Let the adults speak"

 

It's astounding the amount of completely and utterly incompetent people there are working for this administration. To say nothing of the blatant nepotism.

Oh wait. That's right.

On the surface, its not bad that they are meeting instead of measuring their own missile sizes, but bringing us to the brink of war so we can just talk without accomplishing anything doesn't solve anything.  FFS, can we at least get an official end to the Korean War at some point?

that Ivanka video was painful....that whole family is an embarrassment 

 

Yeah it was super awkward. A group of respected, knowledgeable, successful heads of state discussing consequential geopolitical issues.......and a completely out of her depth dip**** trust fund baby trying to insert herself into the conversation as if she had enough brain cells to rub together to offer even the slightest point of interest. I noted earlier that you could tell they all thought she was a moron but were at least semi-attempting to politely ignore her. The look on their faces spoke volumes though. 

 

It was like some rando walking into a science conference, going up and standing next to a group of professors talking about their area of expertise, and randomly going "Totally! I feel the same way and I think you're correct" at various intervals.

So for Trumps 4th of July show on the Mall, they have now restricted access to most of the space between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument to friends and family of Trump. The ****er is taking over the holiday to dry hump his infantile ego, and God forrbid any dissenting voices burst his bubble.

Holy ****, can you imagine what would have happened if Obama had tried something like this? The right would have absolutely gone into seizures and he probably would have been assassinated. I mean that 100% literally.

Grimace is writing a book. The important question is, can the Trump apologists read it without pictures?

State media gonna do its thing giving the moron base what it wants. 

 

The funniest part being, NK hasn’t done anything really except giving Trump photo ops. The Nukes are still there and so are the ICBMs. 

 

Meanwhile, Obama successfully got the entire West onboard and got Iran to shut down its nuclear weapons program. 

 

Politics is great when you can just invent reality for people living in a cult.

is why the only way to win is move as far left as the voting base will allow, take the power they gerrymandered and keep it. 

 

Im just not sure if thats all possible.
