      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!

I wonder how Trump would react to an attempt on him.  No death, just an injury.  Would he become more paranoid than he already is?  

 

I dont even want to think about it.  The best thing this country could do is not touch the guy, otherwise you open the door to people feeling fully justified killing elected officials they are being programmed to hate because they are a threat to our country.  The only thing worse then a smart Trump is killing this one while in office.  So not worth it.

I seem to recall Vogel spending a lot of time reporting on Hillary scandals before and after the election.

Disagree again, correct answer is term limits on judges and replacing them all with moderates.  Justice has to be blind, not partisan 

 

This action of term limits requires a Constitutional amendment. We aren't getting that.

There are loopholes in the constitution the founding fathers missed and the current administration is straight exploiting.  Whoever comes next has to try their best to plug them before a smart Trump shows up.  Keep in mind a smart Trump doesn't have to come from the right.

I can't see a left wing demagogue,  in the mold of a smarter Trump coming to power. 

 

I can see a smarter Trump from the right, in the future; especially in response to a 2 term AOC presidency.

It wont be a moderate if it ever happens, it will be far far left just like Trump is acting far far right.  Bernie is a self admitted socialist with a borderline cult following demonizing the rich and powerful.  This is not a script he invented, we gonna see it again with no promise what their true intentions will be.

State case from before Trump was President. Barr cant cover this one up. Private lawyers representing Trump and his company. It can be overruled but this is a New York matter.

He will just ignore it. Who is going to make him testify? Nobody.

That will be the very next republican president. It won't be a reaction to the left. It will be a doubling down on Trump politics. Somebody young, smart, handsome that just debases the position and appeals to the racists and hatred just like Trump did but that isn't quite so openly corrupt.Well, they will be better about hiding their criminal activities and intent.  Republicans have seen how to wield power and how far basically not giving a **** about anything will get them,. They've seen that our entire democracy is held together by people acting fairly and in good faith. Trump has exposed every hole in our democracy and they will never stop finding people to exploit it now that it's been brought to light so clearly with 0 repercussions.

you don't have to go nearly as far as trump has to be corrupt as ****. nevermind that they will be flagrantly in wrong, the next one will have free reign on the grounds of "well, he/she isn't as bad as trump"

Yeah, I thought the next Republican would be better, after W.  

A cursory examination of the GOP voter base tells me otherwise.
