      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!

Moose & Squirrel v Boris & Natasha: what's the deal with the rooskies and trumpland?

While we await the future rulings

 

 

 

Dersh has had some weird opinions when it comes to Trump. This is an odd comparison, seeing as how McCarthy didn't have an entire Special Counsel report documenting communist activities by people he subpoenaed, nor did he have multiple testimonies under oath from others corroborating that those people were communists and working to subvert the USA. Also, being a communist or believing in that ideology isn't illegal. Obstructing justice is, so is tax fraud, so are emoluments violations.

 

In this case we have tons of evidence sitting there staring us in the face indicating that Trump is absolutely not on the up and up and that he may very well have committed crimes while in office and may very well have a compromised financial situation that could affect how he handles policy decisions. Really not feeling this comparison.

You know as well as I do that her position is mostly a political one. She's quite aware that Trump could literally be an honest to god serial killer and Senate Republicans wouldn't vote to remove him from office as long as he still had his base's support. That being said, there's still plenty of evidence gathering that can be done, and probably should be done, before going full bore on impeachment in order to make it as airtight a case as possible.

 

The problem is that the White House is now going all out to obstruct Congress's efforts to follow the evidence trail and gather that additional information.

Seems fairly obvious Trump would like to push the Dems to start impeachment hearings without having the aid of all the documents they have requested, which would 100% assist them in laying out a more thorough case for why the President should be impeached.

But they have a better chance of getting them by starting impeachment hearings.

 

Or are they just fishing now in hope of landing a fish?

Thread on the Dems strategy

 

I don't have a problem with them taking the long-game approach. My issue is the leadership telling us over and over that they won't impeach him. Just STFU.

Journalists shouldn't be concerned just yet.  We'll need to see the facts he's being prosecuted with.

 

If he's being prosecuted for being a passthrough platform for some American whistleblower, okay, then I could see the potential problems.

 

But if he's being prosecuted for publishing information he knowingly received from a foreign government, then **** him.

 

Anyways, this week has been lit since the moment Trump mentioned the "I" word, and I don't mean impeachment.

Also, I don't have too much sympathy for the Chelsea Manning situation.  They went above and beyond in trying to get classified data to Assange, and Assange seems to have knowingly participated.

 

You publish, then you PUBLISH.  Once you start extracting, directly or indirectly, you take on the liability.

I keep seeing people saying the authority being given to Barr is unprecedented and this concerns me a lot.  We know Barr is a toadie, and while the Mueller report sits there redacted, he will be weaponizing cherry picked intel against Americans to protect himself.

Trump has had that authority, does Barr using it really trouble you more?

The plan is to send all information to Barr, who will then comb through it for things that can be cherry picked to build the narrative that the US should have never investigated a US Presidential campaign which is actually boasting that they're receiving aid from the Russian military intelligence.  And will then declassify the cherry picked things that they think can be spun into that.

This is just extraordinarily dangerous. Shame, shame, shame on anyone who supports this authoritarian madness.

 

Every nutjob thing the R’s projected onto Obama is actually happening x100 with Dump.
