      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!

The more Democrat candidates that appear on Faux, the more credibility Faux gets. They are State TV, and they need to go. It's like CNN putting Trump on all the time during the 2016 election season.

FTR I didn't think you were implying agecide.  I took it as you were gleefully awaiting the death of a generation.  That's not as bad as wanting agecide but it still makes you a ****ty person.

Not gleefully, it just needs to happen for the country to move in the direction the majority wants it to go. If waiting for some crappy people to die makes me crappy, so be it.

Basically the debates made no difference.  Both Hillary and Trump led going in.  I would assume that it’s safe to say that Biden is your nominee.  Who’s gonna take the VP though?  I’d prefer Harris or Warren.

I believe the Dems don't have a winner take all system for their primaries and caucuses.  If a large number of candidates stay in the race, look for a brokered convention where anyone could win.

Yeeesh. 

 

Kamala better get 10,000 times more poised really fast or Trump 2.0 is almost a given.

That's one year.  It is a mistake to draw conclusions from one year like that.

 

The debates clearly had an impact in 2008.

I think 2008 is a long time ago politically speaking.  Plus, in 16 we had Bernie and 08 we had Barack.

I'm going to a fundraiser in San Francisco for Pete Buttigieg in a couple of weeks. Dropped $2,900 on it. They better serve some good food!

 

My father is pretty high on the guy. Thinks he is the spark the Democratic party needs.

Quote

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) on Tuesday pushed back against criticism of his forthcoming climate plan by progressives who have characterized it as a "middle ground" approach to addressing global warming.

 

“You never heard me say middle of the road. I’ve never been middle of the road on the environment,” Biden told reporters in New Hampshire. "Tell her to check the statement that I made and look at my record."


"I don't think she was talking about me," Biden added.

I don't think he will get it, but I love the fact that he is running. I love the diversity the left has with candidates. We have women, people of color, different sexual orientations and religion. I just think Mayor Pete is taking too big of a leap without establishing himself as a candidate. Obama was able to do it, but it was the right guy at the right time. I love that the left is able to put every type of person into the running. Hopefully, no one will be "hurt" when it comes down to the big vote.

Maybe Biden means once a Democrat is in the White House, rule of law will matter to them again?  Who knows....but his statement was a little puzzling.

I do not see this working at all.  Not whatsoever.  A lot of things that can fall through the cracks on limiting interest rates as well as post office banking.  Post Office banking really sounds like a pie in the sky idea that didn't think through the little things.
