      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 never knew this section of ES existed I literally just discovered it today , a place where people  argue about politics and other trivial things , its fascinating to read some of your posts and put a actual human to the online persona. @Warhead36 I could also go for Popeyes

 

 

Also im keeping a bookmark folder for anyone who challenges my opinion in the Stadium which i will revisit at seasons end and tell them I TOLD YOU SO  because online validation of self worth is the bane of my existence .... Not sarcasm

I try to stay out of the politics now. Nasty times we're living in. Best to spend your time hotly debating titties/ass, music, any sport other than pro football, videogames, movies/shows, China's Florida Man articles, etc. 

 

Not a bad place to be if you have thick skin.

Ordered and picked up euros yesterday from the bank (hello Venice in 11 days). I knew they'd be much prettier than our boring af currency but I never realized the different denominations would have different sizes.

 

That's ****ing genius.

 

Especially great for limited/no sight people but I'd suspect it seriously deters counterfeiting too. Why can't the US adopt this method?

Canadian dollars are also pretty cool - they're transparent and indestructible.

Lou Gehrig's iron man streak ended 80 years ago today.

 

Unlike the guy who broke his record, Gehrig wasn't hurting his team by continually playing as he hit .354, .352, and .295 his last 3 full seasons before the streak ended. He did though get some help as 1 game in his streak was postponed for rain (even though it wasn't raining and Gehrig had the flu). 😁

I would never want to climb Mount Everest. Not that I am capable of doing so, but even if I were I wouldn't.

Not that I disagree, but do tell.  I've only had it once, but that was a long time ago.

Do you think Bruce Allen, Dan Snyder, Doug Williams or anyone of importance in the skins organization ever visits the "Stadium " to see what the fans are thinking ?

 

Bonus question : What is actors/athlete celebrity's..... Josh Brolin-Mathew McConahay- Kevin Durant and Dale Earndardt Jr's ES Handle? O and Mia Kahlifia 😉
