      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!

Beto talks about "raising the roof" yet he lives in a house with a fixed roof.

Bernie should run as the Independent he is, and not hijack the Democratic party.

 

Bernie running as an independent would basically guarantee a trump victory

Nah. Colbert Report was a parody in which the audience was in on the joke. Diamond and Silk are two people who knew they could make some bucks by being the token black friends of the Fox News crowd.

@LD0506, I think of you as a beloved relative, specifically the uncle that continually sends those FWD:FWD:FWD:FWD:FWD:FWD emails about politics*, but that 70% tax rate one doesn't even make sense. Is she upset? Isn't this supposed to support that idea? Am I missing something?

 

*What's nice is my uncle doesn't actually do this, so you're really stepping up and filling a void here...

Amusing.....

 

I took it more as a comment on the FOX/Trumpy demographic having the ****s, the fits and the blind staggers about even the suggestion of taxing the rich because SOCIALISM!! like they've been told to, even though they have no idea what it entails, in much the same way they did over a biracial couple in a Cheerios ad or gay marriage or immigrants or the Black Panther movie or.........

Bernie would be 79 years old on election day and 86 years old his last year in office if he attempted two terms. 

I'm sorry I'm not trying to discriminate against the elderly here but we don't need a president who's of nursing home age.

It's a sad fact that your senses and mind dull when you age and we need to consider putting a law in for a maximum age for president. 

We have a minimum why not a maximum for almost the same reason?

It's still Feb '19, I am of the opinion that this is a good time for Bernie and Biden to "get in", just so they can run their course and move on before the convention and campaign next year.

 

I'm a dreamer but I'd still love to see a politician shake off the ego and hubris and admit that they were NOT "the answer", not bettin' on it though........

Bernie and Joe will still be in the race when the voting starts next February but will find out they won't get as much support as they think they will. Joe is probably gone after Super Tuesday. Bernie stays in until the end but his impact; isn't like 2016.

Bernie going to run as the lifelong independent that he is or is he going to attempt to hijack the DNC for 18 months again?

I don't know if Bern is popular enough with some of his ideas to be embraced by a political party. We'll see how the field goes, because the Democratic primary field now is absolutely crazy. And that's without Biden. 

 

From that scrum who do you all see as the favorite so far to emerge as the nominee?

It's funny how Biden's rep has flipped. I remember when he was "Crazy Uncle Joe" with foot in mouth disease.

Bernie’s time has come and gone. He lost it when he didn’t forcefully embrace Clinton last election.

That's hard to gauge. Probably,  need to see a debate or two. All, I can guess right now; Kamala Harris and even she had a misstep already.

 

 

 

 

 

Amy K. Had a town hall yesterday; anyone see it?

He hijacks Vermont primaries too. Wins the Democratic primary, declines, and runs as an independent. Hard pass on this dude.

It has been confirmed that he is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination.
