      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!

I speak a great deal (here & everywhere) on self- and other-awareness. This is from a journalist and an amateur, not an actual psychiatrist or psychologist, but well-summarized (and just a piece of the big picture, but a significant one).

I would have left off the last phrase (over-emphasized and too limited) and worded the whole thing a bit differently, but it works.

He adds this below, which is also not how I would put it (too sweepingly presumptive and overstated for one thing) , but useful enough. Though it's hardly a "bulletin alert" for most of us, it still gets regularly ignored in self-monitoring.

Makes a lot of sense.

Yesterday was without a doubt the best Thanksgiving ever. Enjoying time with the family, watching us dispatch the Cowboys. Couldn't have been a more awesome day. My bro made this awesome prime rib. **** was bangin'. I'm pretty sure thta between that, my sis in laws gumbo, and the fried turkey, I may have gained over 4lbs.

I don't think I'm going to be doing a damn thing, all day. Been moving furniture into my brothers new house in Germantown for the last 2 weeks (exercise equipment, pool table, stereo equipment, big ass recliners, tv's, everything). Still have three heavy ass boxes with CD/DVD mounted cabinets to put together, but with yesterdays activities, I am dead. Haven't been sleeping well either. I figured I'd sleep in, but I just woke up without an alarm after just 4 hours of sleep, and couldn't get back to sleep, so I just said eff it. Might watch a few movies today or something. Complete vegetation.

You could lose your phone anywhere. What does that have to do with you going out?

If I left work and went directly home to my "safe zone" my phone would be by my pillow right now while I was asleep. Now I have to revert back to my dumbphone.

I know man and I appreciate it. best advice I can give is to install one of those apps that can track your phone by GPS if it's lost.

I'm just sooooo frustrated with myself right now, I've owned cell phones since like 2002 and never lost the crappy ones, but when I get a smartphone I lose the bloody thing within 7 months :doh1::censored:

So woke up early for some reason. I turn on the tv and for some reason 16 and pregnant is on. I shake my head when ever I come across that show (Fun fact: According to my guide this episode is about a cheerleader who got pregnant from her 1 month boyfriend lol)
