      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!

Basketball recruiters must be lining up down the block, round her neck of the woods. I mean... any team she'd be on would have the competition by the throat. I mean... by this time necks, err, next week, ESPN will probably already have an E:60 piece on her

Honest to God, wouldn't even have thought about it if you hadn't thrown in that part about using your mommy's credit card.

been spending money from my credit card on chipotle, itunes, and soda all summer while i wass living in woodbridge, and on saturday my mom noticed my current shoes were pretty much torn apart, so she was like "here, you're going to need new shoes before school...use my card". at that point i wasnt going to say no :lol:

Mom still buys me clothes. I don't live with them but I appreciate it.

205. Feeling good. That's officially 30 lbs.

exactly, live as long as you can until parents stop spending their money on stuff for you :D  my brother is 27, and my sister is 24 and my parents still use their credit card on them once in a while. much less often for my brother since he's a bit of a douche :P

I know Cooleyfan is like 17, but you can't fully call yourself an adult if your parents still buy you clothing.

Or if you live in their house.

Or if they are currently paying the auto loan on the car that you drive.

****, how about this. I pay my mother for watching our son 4 days a week. That's right, she's profiting off of me, not the other way around. That's real adult stuff right there.

I've become a big fan of Benedict Cumberbatch since watching all his BBC Sherlock Holmes episodes sometime back (Sherlock is one of my lifelong role models and most beloved fictional characters---also loved the 30's/40's films featuring Basil Rathbone--find them, watch them).

 

I was just listening to PBS/BBC radio and they had some English critics discussing how his recent portrayal of Hamlet is setting everyone to saying that it's among the best presentations of this---well, "classic" doesn't really cover it. Not bad.

 

Also loved hearing he was going to be Dr. Strange and, repeating myself, if you haven't seen The Imitation Game, you should.

i never said i was an adult, dude....where did i say that? and it was just a pair of shoes, as i had no money on my debit card. im 22, beginning my 2nd freshman year in a new college. i live at home on summer breaks, but next summer will be trying to get a job with miami or cleveland. i am nowhere near an actual adult yet. no shame in that. heck, even my brother and sister come home once in a while. :)

Imitation game was awesome. The book it's based on is a snoozer though—it goes into heavy detail of his whole life.

Didn't think this would deserve it own thread but I saw where Melody Patterson, who played 'Wrangler Jane' in the series "F Troop passed away at 66.

 

I remember having a crush on her when I was younger in the 70s and they were showing "F Troop" in syndication.

 

I was surprised at how much I was taken aback by this news.

 

RIP Wrangler Jane. :(

No need to get your jimmies in a bunch, pippy. Just making some observations on life, not asking you to be something you aren't.

You do you. Freeloader.

:D
