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
Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts? Consider it.
Passing yards this quarter: Redskins 3. 49ers 9. Are you not entertained?!
Half Time Update
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.
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.
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!
