      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!

I just hope we can all realize that the 10k SALT deduction limit is a giant ****ing problem for anyone who lives in a progressive state. **** the GOP for using this to pay for the 1% tax reductions.

I live in one of those states and my wife has done a preliminary return online and we got screwed beyond anything I could have ever imagined. 

I'm gonna take my taxes to an expert this year to see if we're not understanding the new rules this year but as of right now nothing has changed between this year and last year as far as our jobs or income but the new tax plan cost us 15 thousand dollars.

I don't know if it's salt or what the hell it is but all I know is my tax return changed by that much this year and it sucks.

And it sure as hell isn't because I don't pay taxes.

Remember too that blue states with higher SALT tends to be net givers to the federal government.

 

I could see the sense in a tax reform that results in higher taxes for some if it was in pursuit of a worthy goal.  But the Trump plan blew a 1.5 trillion dollar hole in the deficit over the next 10 years to give the biggest break to those who least need it.  In essence, @redskinss of the country is getting hit with 15k more in taxes so that Daniel Snyder can buy a new yacht with an IMAX certified theatre (Napoleon Complex anyone?).  Something very wrong there.

Those blue states have high income....many as a direct result of the federal govt spending.

I would certainly hope they were net givers. :)

 

I'm all for slashing govt spending and reasonable taxes.

 

on the other hand it seems wrong to shift 15K to the blue state from federal funds as a deduction(after the 10K).

 

sorta encourages more bad behavior

If Fed Govt spending returns more money to federal coffers than it gives out to those blue states, maybe we should have massive tax increase and start spending more money!  How about AOC's New Green Deal?  Wanna barnstorm the countryside and whip up some support together? 😂

Owning property is bad behavior?  You GOPers really have ****ed up values when owning property is bad behavior but impeading a federal investigation is a mere “process crime” that should be ignored.

Howard Schultz buries himself pretty quickly. He won’t pull any Dem votes and he is super out of touch on issues.

Not sure why so many people think this. Do we not acknowledge the fact that there is a large population of conservatives AND independents who will be running from the republican candidate in 2020? The fact that we might have a strong indi running would pull people towards the center to get votes by itself. You dont have to be the most left to win the nom unless the DNC is actively trying to lose again by forcing a particular candidate no one wants. Again. 

 

No, I dont think the only way to get the dem nom is to be the most left candidate out there. Im not sure why anyone does. 

 

And EVEN if that ends up being the way it goes I still dont see how any of you can justify that equating to a Trump win at this point. He has isolated himself to his base and is even losing them. No way he can win. Its over. Seriously, this shut down finished it for him. He lost in all phases on that one. 

Actually, no we don't.  Those anti-Trump conservatives and conservative leaning Independents aren't going to all of sudden vote for a Progressive Democrat.  They may not vote for Trump but they aren't going to be lured to a progressive who's policies are anathma.  They'll either vote for some third party candidate or not vote for PResident.  When push comes to shove, I think many of them will vote for Trump again.  Better than the evil Progressive Socialist Communist Democrat.

 

You may think it's over for Trump.  Until I see it called on election day that Trump has lost, there's always a shot he can win.

 

Trump, the GOP and the Russians will do everything they can to make sure the GOP wins in 2020.  The Dems nominate someone who's to far to the left, I don't care how crazy Trump is; that left Dem is going to have a hard time beating Trump.

 

I siad early in this thread, I don't think the progressive stand on the issues can win a national election in 2020.  Maybe by 2024 or 2028.

 

Medicare for All, sounds nice. Who wouldn't want that.  Then you tell the voters, to get that; they will have to pay higher taxes. Not B.S. that they can tax the Trumps and Shultzs of the world and you get medicare for all.  You want it, then you have to pay for it.

 

Free College Education.  Well, your taxes have to pay for it.  Do you really want to pay taxes to give education to people who can afford it.

 

Gauranteed basic income.  Sounds great but where's that money coming from.

 

You can do down the list on issues like that.

 

If your running for the Dem nomination in 2020; you will have to be for these issues to get the nomination. That's where the Democratic primary electorate is now.

 

In the Fall of 2020, I don't believe the country is yet there on those issues or issues like that; especially against Trump and the Russian supported GOP.  I could be dead wrong on this. WE will see, which type of Dem wins the nomination.  People are for alot of things until you tell them, how much it costs and that they have to pay for it.

Let's be honest though, if the Dems resurrected Ronald Reagan  and indoctrinated him on every classic conservative theory and he ran under the D ticket he would be named the "furthest left candidate ever!!!" The Dems always choose someone center-left. Recently, the Repubs always choose someone fringe-insane.

 

I mean was Hillary Clinton really an extremist left character? The conservative media said she was. 

 

I do agree about the Russians and Trump though. There's no depth of mud Trump won't sink too.

Just cause I can tell you didn’t read it, half of that post was an argument against the dems nominating the left most candidate they can find. 

 

So so most of your post here is arguing against yourself. 

 

You can can wait and see, of course. We all will have to. But I don’t believe there is a way for Trump to win it now. Look at the midterms. The candidates he backed were the losers. There are your data points. If you can ignore that then I have no problem ignoring your argument.

I've been saying this for a while now.  I voted 3rd party for President.  Partly because I didn't think there was anyway Trump could win and I wanted to do my part to raise a 3rd party.  In hindsight, I probably would have voted Hillary but then needed to go home and take a shower.

 

This cycle I am begging for a Dem that isn't way too far off from my views.  I want Trump gone but that doesn't mean I will just automatically vote Dem.  It has to be some I can at least somewhat agree with and a far left progressive won't get my vote.  I don't know a whole lot about Kamala (too early to start deep research) but I'm not a fan of what I have seen so far.  Someone too far Left will end up with me going 3rd party again.  And I'm not sure the Dems can win without people like me.

There is a way. Trump shutdown the government for a month. Who knows how much fun Russian hackers have had during that time. Our election was  already compromised. Trump, McConnell, and Ryan did everything they could to stonewall or cut funding to watchdog groups.

 

I don't know if I'm being totally tin hat, but it would be worth hundreds of billions, at least, to Russia for Trump to remain in power.
