      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!

Sorry ix, your boy Yang is a complete technocrat, with the oratory skills of all the nerds I went to graduate school with. Hard pass.

Just because it wasn't unrealistic at one time doesn't mean it isn't now.  Though debate would need to be had over the quality of the home, etc.

Yang is going to go back to the future talking about how he tried.

 

Thank you, Pete, for reminding everyone that people are looking at us like we're insane and China's model makes more sense to some right now.  Democracy is in retreat, we need to get to that before they leave the stage tonight.

Hold the phone, Mexico isn't part of Central America?  It's literally right in the middle between North and South America.  I feel like I've been lied to all my life, are ya'll sure?

I'm gonna caveat this with the fact that I really don't give a ****.  But from a couple quick searches, it seems as though it is an unresolved opinion as to where central america actually starts.

 

Dude, Encyclopedia Britannica. There was a time when that WAS the "internet". Respect your elder (sources).

Do you want me to provide other sources?  Or is this even something worth discussing?

You do understand why it was realistic, and why it no longer is.....correct?

 

When Dad worked and mom stayed home to take care of the kids in the house they owned... 

 

.....families had one car

..........that car was minimalist 

.....meals were homemade

...........restaurant trips was a rare luxury

......credit was a running tally at the hardware store or boutique. Credit cards weren't a thing.

.......college wasn't an expectation, kids started working at 14 to help contribute to the home and start saving for their adulthood

.....people lived modestly and within their means

 

People feeling entitled to WEALTH not just basic wellbeing is the delta, not income.

It's sitting on the North American tectonic plate.

No.  Don't really care.  There are other sources that dispute it.  But I really couldn't care less about how you classify it.  Call it part of South Africa.  Won't bother me.  Enjoy.

Also, no. I sometimes have a weird sense of humor. You should probably just ignore me.
