      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 head coach, 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!

Elecciones Presidenciales 11/3/2020- Meltdown Manchild Donny vs Superplanner Lizzie & some other Dems

I wonder if Joe Kennedy III is on anyones short list for dark horse VP picks? He was phenomenal at the 2016 DNC, has the bloodline, and would balance a ticket for a candidate if they are a non-New Englander.

VP being a white guy probably means Kamala won the nomination. I think the Dem ticket is going to be mixed gender/mixed race.

Seriously, if the Democrats plan on debating "Socialism" vs. Capitalism during the campaign, they've already lost.  It is basically conceding that they have lost any kind of messaging on the idiocy of "Socialism" even being a part of the dialog.

Such a stark contrast to the mouth breathing idiot currently occupying the White House.

If the NC primary were held tomorrow I'd vote for Warren. 

 

Hopefully once I get some free time I'll do some volunteer work for her campaign.

I love that she's calling it Economic Patriotism. I hope these other democratic candidates learn from her and more so Pete Buttigeig and realize they can co-opt the patriotic and even religious symbolism and buzz words the republicans use to press their voters buttons.

Need to go at these assholes. Not down with meeting them halfway or simply talking about how awful they are

 

She's the only one that seems for real in that regard. If we're going to make iy as a country going forward, that **** had to change

I shudder at thinking about eight solid months of Trump referring to his opponent as Pocahontas. Ugh.

 

 

Oh and don't get me wrong, I'd easily vote for her despite her mistakes regarding that issue.

If Biden or Sanders don't win the nomination, I wonder who does?

 

Lizzie really should've ran in 2016.I think she would've beaten Hillary and have a fair shot of winning then.

 

I don't think she can beat Trump now.  If Biden is the nominee, she is the best choice for his veep .

I still think Biden will flame out early and Bernie will win the nomination because everyone else will split votes long enough for him to rack up a substantial number of primary/caucus wins.

 

It's not the ideal scenario, but it's the one that I think will happen at this point. Bernie is the only way with a core base of 20-30% of primary voters that aren't voting for anyone but him. I don't think anyone else has that.

I would love Bernie as the nominee, but I think it will be Biden. I think Biden will have to pick Warren as his running mate to appease the progressives, though.

Biden and Harris are both centrist Democrats, Harris less so. Still not paying attention to 2018 candidates and wins. 

 

If Democrats don't win the presidential race and lose the Congress, we as a nation are screwed.

2020 is a long way off, so I don't want to predict anything, but Trump is losing ground, not gaining. I know the Dems want to impeach now, but Pelosi is right to want to drag it out. Let the facts come out slowly so the people don't forget (which they do). Let Trump hang himself on his own petard, impeachment won't get him out of office. Instead, slowly have everyone explain what the Mueller Report means, it is the only way.

 

P.S. Candidates need to stick to policy, let congress hammer away at Trump.

I'm guessing you saw the video of the old woman admitting she had no idea about what the Mueller Report said about Trump? She still saw the light, I understand why they're taking their time. There is a civil war in the GOP, some of the left are afraid that they will head the charge and take credit for usurping Trump. I don't think we're there yet.
