      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!

States rights but only when enslaving people and/or discriminating against them.

 

It's going to be tied up for decades in the courts. California was given that right 39 years ago (when they passed CEQA), can't see it being undone because President **** Ass **** is mad the overwhelmingly state hates him.

 

A petty man doing petty things.

 

Btw..this was my lane. Working as a local and then state transportation planner for 17 years, I dealt with CEQA/NEPA a lot. The idea that states can't set more stringent environmental rules than the Feds is silly and only the current admin wants this rollback (but not for any relevant reasons). They just want to flex their muscle over states who dare not suck the Presidents maga ****.

Oh, I'm sure there's other motives involved, too.  

 

Let's face it:  Opposing every single thing that has anything to do with the environment has been part of the GOP's "brand" for 50 years.

Corey Lewandowski: The Mueller Report was very clear. There was no collustion, no obstruction.

 

Alisyn Camerota: (incredulous) That's not what the Mueller Report said!

 

 Lewandowski: It absolutely does.  You should read the page where it says that.

 

Camerota: Time out. Time out.  Did you read the Mueller Report?

 

Lewandowski : No I never did.

 

Camerota: Then how do you know what it says?

It's a shame that Barry Berke's 30 minute questioning of Lewandowski didn't get more play, because he exposed Corey for the lying weasel he is...

He was completely unabashed when lying about the report to Camerota too. There wasn't even the slightest hint of shame or guilt that you usually see in humans who tell an absolutely blatant, ludicrous lie to another person's face. 

 

" 'Gone With The Wind' had a major part about cyborgs trying to take over Moldova"

"Wait, what? No it didn't"

"It absolutely did. You should read the chapter about it"

"Um, have you ever read Gone With The Wind?"

"No, I haven't"

"I'm not the first one to say this"

 

He's right,

-Rush Limbaugh

-Michael Savage

-Sean Hannity

-Laura Ingraham

-Ann Coulter

-Richard Spencer

 

Great company, there.

GOP would have been talking about impeachment for this had this been HRC or Obama/Bubba C.

 

But it doesn't even rate for President PAB. Expect a major cover-up from the GOP.
