      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!

Unfortunate photo from a Women's Org fundraiser my wife recently attended. They were supposed to write uplifting things on the white board.

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

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

Lucky ****. I was 1-****ing-80 when I got back from Denver (whenever that was. RTT live posted my entire drive. Less than two days ****es. I'm a beast. But yeah, October iirc?) Big part of the reason I came back. Lost 40 pounds there cause my bro ****ed me over and I ate nothing but Easy Mac for like 6 months. True I worked at a Mexican Restaurant there and true I love Mexican food but.....omg. I was their main delivery driver. I have no idea how I made money. El Costello. They used to try to force me to eat their food. Did so twice. Can't-go-wrong soft tacos once and arguably my favorite dish of all time, cheese enchiladas. I'll Just say this and I need say no more, I could barely eat their cheese quesadillas. Think about that. Anyway my Easy Mac diet had me drop a **** ton of weight. Then I had my seizure when I got back I think in February. One of the meds I'm on now as a result gives me a ****ing wicked sweet tooth. Back up up to 240. (I'm 6'1"/6'2" ftr). It's literally impossible to buy anything but socks and shoes (I've always bought my hats big. Just because I never know what I'm gonna do with my hair) when your weight fluctuates like so.

Think about this. I joined the Army at 18 a decade ago. Height hasn't changed at all. Guess how much I weighed when I enlisted??

Doc,

 

I lived with my wife and mother-in-law for 6 years. Best thing I spent money on was one of them quiet toilet seats.  You just tap it and it goes down by itself.  Finish up, shake it out and tap the seat. (Yes, more TOOC material.  I've been gotten twice today).

Doc, leave the sit down and put the lid down too. And also, don't expect them to be thrilled when they open the lid and see ball hair everywhere so make sure your pubes aren't all over the seat.

I mean, unless you're trying to scoop them Clarence Thomas style

Also, don't make one mention of them leaving every last one of their bathroom products out by the sink. They get all pissy when you do that

Yeah I remember the first and last time I thought I'd help my wife out by putting her curling iron back under the sink where it belonged.

Edit: so scarred couldn't even finish my post. Needless to say, she swatted that idea away like a young Mutombo and stood over my crumpled body wagging her finger at me

The Weeknd is the ****. That is all

Going to see him Dec 5th. I was going to see him at Hard Summer but I didn't want to spend cash to see bunch of people I didn't care about.

ack...all wired up from more coffee, and drinking it much later than normal, and having had to write a very lengthy and detailed presentation for most of the day and into tonight, and it carried over to making a superrrr long post in the jay thread while i ate some very spicy chili (delicious but my stomach will pay me back for that and the coffee this time of evening).

 

even tho i gave a very firm "tl;dr" warning at the top of the post, i'm still going to get a lot of **** over it.  :wacko:  ^_^

 

of course i could have edited it out and thought about it as is my norm, but then wtf, what do i have to gain or lose. let it go and let 'em do whatever.  :P

 

and i still apologized for it anyway  :lol:

 

can you tell i've had a lot of coffee?  :D
