      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

      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!

Sort of like Trump supporters defending his 10,000 + documented false statements or lies by saying "Well...Obama said 'If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor'...wasn't that a lie?"

 

Apparently one false statement or lie cancels out all others. This is a good principle to know.

Remember when the entire GOP was defending Trump's campaign meeting with the Russian ambassador (which Trump had denied, till it was proven), by saying "Yeah, I met with him, too.  He was a guest at the GOP convention"?

I don’t know where to put this so I’ll put it here. I ****ing hate Pelosi. I’m so angry that the Dems are so ****ing spineless that they won’t impeach this POS POTUS. I’ve never thought this until now, but I wish there was another viable party. 

 

I also hate smart phones adding words to stuff.

Wife and I were discussing it. 

 

We both think they’d demand more than his resignation.  Thinking treasonous.

I'm all for impeachment, but I think the Dems need to bring more people in to testify first. They need to bring in McGahn, Barr and Mueller and if you need to throw them into a cell, so be it. They also need to do it in that order, McGahn won't lie, he won't torpedo his career for Trump. Barr will lie, even though the truth is going to come out. Mueller will not lie, we all know why. We need to "sandwich" Barr in a lie, the American people won't be able to ignore that, no matter how stupid they are.

The impeach process is when you bring these people in to testify. There is more than enough already that they don’t need more testimony

When I say impeachment, I mean Articles of Impeachment. No more beating around the bush, time to pull the trigger on the whole thing.

I'd probably be demanding it too. It's such a completely and utterly unacceptable thing for ANY candidate or office holder to say, let alone a sitting POTUS. 

 

Trump basically pulled a Rick James. "I never just did things just to do them. C'mon, like what am gonna do, become POTUS by accepting a hostile foreign government's help, like it's something to do? C'mon, I got a little more sense than that."

 

"So yeah, I'd accept a hostile foreign government's help to get elected."

And so would the entire Republican Party. Including a good chunk of Republican voters. They've SAID so. 

 

Long as Russia's intervening on their side, they're actually pleased about it.

As long as the Senate is controlled by the current crop of Republicans, there is no "proof" good enough and there is no method by which the impeachment will oust Trump from office. This is why the House MUST IMPEACH NOW. (What? That makes no sense, Chachie.) Let me explain...

 

If they don't impeach, the man skates free untouched and history will never officially record the corruption. If they do impeach, Trump will be saved by the crooked Senate but at least he will  always carry the deeply-embedded stigma of an impeached president. He will be de-legitimized, cheapened, and perhaps even more likely to be voted out in the next election. As I mentioned, he's not leaving office in this term thanks to his protective Senate. Throw the punch anyway. Take the swing. Fatten his lip, daze him. Make darned sure he suffers at LEAST the damage of being impeached. We already know that testimony from McGahn, Mueller, whomever won't change the intent of the Senate republicans who would be responsible for voting him out. They've sold their souls and still don't want a refund. So waiting for more "proof" is ridiculous. 

 

IMPEACH. The democrats are treading water, getting tired, and are going to drown. Again. That's weak sauce. FIGHT. Scratch, claw, kick, punch, FIGHT. The outcome will be the same and that's a shame but you HAVE TO FIGHT. You have to leave a mark on the POTUS and on history.
