      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!

Just say no during the primaries. She is great on some issues but not as a candidate for POTUS

I don't see her gaining traction. She works better as a Senator. Only good thing is we now have notable candidates in the running.

She made my prediction come true. I said a major candidate or two would announce before 2019. She literally waits until the final day.

 

She won't go far though. Trump has already made her look like mince meat.

No to Warren, Biden, Bernie, Clinton and the old guard. I’d like younger, charismatic and diverse candidates. 


Absolutely not to Warren, she would be the preferred candidate for Trump.  He'd LOVE to campaign against "Pocahontas."  Warren would push Trumplings to the booths in droves. 

Lemme get dat John Hickenlooper/Kamala Harris ticket  :wub:

I don't like his name. It seems silly but you need a strong name. Hickenlooper doesn't pass the test.

I hate to say it, but we need a white man, in his 50s that's squeaky clean and moderate. Then a woman to balance the ticket. Maybe McCaskell, she is freed up and lost in a very Red state. Has moderate to liberal positions.

 

I want Kamala Harris to stay in the Senate. I don't want her distracted by a campaign.  I want Warren in the Senate. She might be the compromise candidate to keep Sanders out of the party.

I don't agree with this at all.

 

Recent political results have not been friendly to the “safe, politically correct” candidate. They’ve been friendly to the outsider candidate that exudes authenticity. Obama won a MAJOR upset against Hillary in 08 because of how he delivered his message but also because he was different. Trump did the same in 2016 with his supporters (Trump of course is a serial liar but his supporters refuse to see it). Bernie, for a kooky near-octogenarian, did extremely well against Hillary in 2016 as well.

 

IMO experience and and fitting into the “white male” category is completely irrelevant to 2020 odds. Find the inspirational candidate. Find the candidate that you believe is honest and not at all tactical/political. Support the **** out of that person because that’s how candidates get people to the polls. 

 

People like Biden because of Obama nostalgia but also honesty. People like Beto because he’s inspirational. Elizabeth Warren doesn’t quite have “it” like those two but I do like her a lot. Same with Kamala.

Dude, we elected a guy named Barack Hussein Obama.  I think we can get past Hickenlooper.

I stand by it. Both Barack and Obama are short strong names. 

 

President Hickenlooper sounds ridiculous. It’s like 75 syllables. I’m all for the best candidate but that won’t even fit on a bumper sticker. 

 

Donald Trump

Barack Obama 

George Bush 

Bill Clinton 

George Bush

Ronald Reagan 

Jimmy Carter

Gerald Ford 

Richard Nixon

Lyndon Johnson

John F Kennedy 

 

...

John Hickenlooper? 

 

I think there is something to the name

Dems better have a woman on the ticket AND I'm already tired of Beto. He may be peaking a bit early.

I haven’t heard a peep from him since the election. 

 

He is riding a wave much like Obama did after winning his Senator seat and getting rockstar status speaking at the DNC for Kerry. When you have the momentum you go for it. 

 

Beto needs to be on that ticket

He’s in the news a lot.

 

He really does not NEED to be on the ticket. The Dems have a strong group including a couple from the Midwest. At this point I can see Brown or Klobacher as a VP depending on who the top of the ticket is.

So I know this is a weird concept for the left but how about letting the voters decide who is on the ticket?  You know, like actual primaries without a thumb on the scale.

I don't even know what this means. The voters on the left always decide who is on the top of the ticket.

Was the thumb on the scale to elect Obama in 2008? Or Bill Clinton in 92? Hillary won the vast majority of the actual primaries in 2016. Your narrative is false. Feel free to look up the results.

The discussion has been had about 2016.  We can rehash again though.  2008 many would argue the thumb was on the scale for Hillary.  Obama was just awesome enough to overcome it.

You mean voters on the left decided who was on the ticket? I rest my case. 

 

The race on the left is wide open.
