      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!

Where did that thread go?  Plenty of people said to get out when it was higher then made sense, basically not to trust it.  Most successful ones where the ones that got in early and got out early, now.. this...

Sinking like the Titanic. I hope most people got out while they were still ahead.  My friend swears it's gonna go back up, and the reason it's tanking is because  "China controls the markets ".  I told him he better salvage whatever he's got left of the 30k he put into it.

I'm just glad I only invested like 80 bucks or so. I'll hold on to them and just hope they go back up. No point in cashing out 11 dollars or whatever it's worth.

I think that still matters even separate from any success or failure of any particular cryptocurrency.

Someone mocking blockchain is about as funny as anything I’ve seen on this forum. Thank you for sharing your ignorance so proudly.

 

Es, the home of the clueless entertainers.

Hopefully your friend doesn’t listen to you.

Yeah, that was strangely aggressive of him over a SFW topic.

Cryptos have roughly doubled in price this year. I should point out that there was a thread just like this one a few years back after the price of bitcoin had dropped from 1k to $200...and a year and a half later it was peaking at 18k.  I have no idea what the future holds for bitcoin, but blockchains are a worthwhile innovation. Bitcoin apparently has other technological challenges popping up, and may end up being the Netscape of cryptos while something like Litecoin becomes like Chrome.

The thing I’ve enjoyed most about bitcoin is watching my friends that don’t know dick about technology, or algorithms, or data encapsulation going on long rants about block chain

 

they’re easy to mess with because ultimately they don’t have a ****ing clue what they’re talking about. They just watched a CNBC segment and read some stuff on the internet

 

(to avoid confusion, based on what little I know about blockchain in the grand scheme, I think it’s awesome)

Seems unlikely, but that post is proper competition.

Bitcoin isn’t going anywhere unless quantum computers become an issue for it. Xrp, eth, ltc, xlm, link, iota, btt, ada, eos, bat & others will all reach aths. Btc has a better chance of going to 100k than to 0.

Facebook jumping into crypto, it’s probably not dying any time soon. Silly ES experts - adorable thread, btc nearing 10k. 

 

Projects you’ll want to invest in:

ltc

eth

xrp

qnt

link

Hedera

algorand

ada

Elixxir

 

Hedera is a phenomenal project, you can get free hbars participating in some simple exercises online with them. Quantum is available to purchase now, it’s got as much growth potential as any. Xrp is being integrated with MoneyGram & more banks are on the way, ltc has a halving coming up in less than 2 months. Overledger - hashgraph - r3 - Hyperledger - ilp - dlt - polysign - cobalt the future nears as Libra is set to introduce the world to crypto.

 

Don’t listen to the goobers that initiated the thread, they are out of their depth. Make some money, you’re welcome.

Yes

 

Definitely listen to the people with no background in economics, computer science, mathematics, finance, or investing running around with big rants on crypto currency. Because they're certainly not out of their depth.

 

Their 4 year degree in communications has prepared them for making accurate risk assessments on investing in new technology
