      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.

      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!

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

Recommended Posts

“If we don’t learn some lessons from this election we will not be a majority party,” said Representative Ann Wagner of Missouri, who represents suburban St. Louis, calling for a caucus that “looks more like America.”

But several internal moves since the election have left some of the Republican women concerned their leaders still do not fully grasp the importance of promoting diversity.

Mr. McCarthy passed over Ms. Wagner to install a male successor to Mr. Stivers at the National Republican Congressional Committee, according to multiple Republicans briefed on the decision; after dutifully serving on the less-than-desired House ethics panel, Representative Susan Brooks of Indiana lost her very-much-desired post on the steering committee, which controls committee assignments, to a male colleague.

Representative Kay Granger, a long-serving lawmaker from Texas, was nearly denied the ranking member slot on the House Appropriations Committee for a more junior male colleague, winning the post by a single vote on the third ballot, according to two lawmakers familiar with the private vote count.

The ‘Winning by Losing’ 2020 Democratic Fantasy Ticket: O’Rourke/Gillum

https://townhall.com/columnists/myrakahnadams/2018/12/07/the-winning-by-losing-2020--democratic-fantasy-ticket-orourkegillum-n2537124

 

No experience, no problem! What matters is an O’Rourke/Gillum ticket with two young liberals, 180 degrees away from President Trump, might have a decent shot of winning a combined 67 electoral votes — nearly 25 percent of the 270 needed to win the White House.

Democrats could be dreaming about the largest red state and the largest swing state both landing in the blue column on election night 2020. It’s the future they say. What’s not to like?

Gillum has something alleged ethical problems. 

 

Let's see Beto on the national stage first.  He may look good now but once he's out there campaigning, he could fall flat.

In fairness, Hillary probably got 1,000,000 more votes than potus poltroon in Ohio.

I can’t see him falling flat, but I really hope we support one of the women & let that woman crush Trump so our kids can grow up knowing the most repugnant man on the planet isn’t more valuable than the most qualified, hard working, brilliant - women. I’m disappointed in the Dems lack of support for Hillary, she earned the Presidency despite trumps crimes & Comeys treasonous bull****...she had the White House stolen from her & Dems don’t support her because of focus groups. It’s weak. 

 

Tangentially, if we nominate Bernie, it’s time to head to Iceland. Puffins are legit creatures.

She legally can’t run for another 6 years until she is 35.

 

I love her social media presence calling out corruption and injustices. 

 

She is stepping into the face of the next generation of Democratic leadership and her ideas like the green new deal and Medicare for all are going to be very popular ideas that Dems need to rally behind for 2020

 

edit: not saying she came up with those but that she is really

pushing them on her social media and is getting a lot of support

And a large portion of Dems threw their hands up and said “screw it” when Bernie lost and either stayed home or went 3rd party etc

For the 40th time:

 

Same amount of Sanders supporters stayed home or voted Trump/3rd party as as every other major election in this country going back at least 2 decades. (primary voters of losing candidates) The majority of these people were not Democrats. (like myself) 

 

More Cruz/Rubio/Kasich supporters voted for Hillary Clinton then Sanders supporters voted for Trump.

 

More Hillary Clinton PUMAs voted for John McCain, then Sanders voters went Trump. 

 

 

People in this country are ****ing stupid. You're focusing on the 10% that is even dumber then the average American.
