      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!

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 😉

 

McConaughey.... @TryTheBeal!?  Exceedingly laid back sometimes.  Also I picture TTB to have great hair.

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

 

Sauce is cloyingly sweet, crust is like pillsbury rolls, doesn’t appear to be anything resembling garlic/basil/oregano involved.

 

Its just amazingly bland.  It’s the Bill Engvall of pizza...the Jimmy Buffett of pizza

I find football talk on the internet funny. People say "I watched the tape" "you gotta watch the tape" "You didn't watch the tape"

 

If by tape, you mean YouTube highlights, then yeah, maybe you watched the tape.

Yeah, I expect those that say that to have a reel to reel recorder in a dark room under a stadium somewhere, projecting it onto a wall.  Youtube highlights, aka cherrypicking the best plays of each player, is not tape.

Unless you're one of those creepy ass dudes that buy all the actual game film, and study it like a kid building a bomb, just to own newbz on the internet

I always skip the highlights and go straight to the full-game videos.  I don't want cherry-picked plays.  Wish we got the all-22, though.  Hard to evaluate the secondary when you can't see what they're doing most of the time.

 I didn't know that you could watch full games on YouTube.  Doesn't GamePass have the all-22?  I'm getting GamePass this year. Dumped DirecTv, so I'll need to watch the games somehow.

Just look up "<player name> vs." and you'll usually find a few games where somebody put together every play that person was in throughout the game.  Many of them will point out where he is before each play.  It's nice and distilled so you don't have to skip around looking for the correct side of the ball or figure out if he's been subbed out on any given play.

You can definetly find full games on YouTube depending in how you search, resolution can get pretty low sometimes for newer games, or like the game with huge border around it.

Except for the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, I have never seen another comic book movie. And that record will continue.

One thing I refused to do was take anti-anxiety meds because i didnt feel like i had an anxiety issue or want the stigma.  Finally asked about it because of racing thoughts and pacing habit, couldn't take it anymore.  Now I feel like I can see though walls. It's not about asking for drugs, it's about asking for help, something a lot of people refuse to do until that's only option left.

I refuse to take statin drugs ever again. My gait was very off and both my short and long term memory was affected in that I couldn't function. I stopped taking them and in about a week I was okay. I only took them for about a month.

 

I go to the doctor tomorrow and let her know that I won't take these drugs. Horrible!

I take a statin. Didn't realize that this was a possibility. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm just waiting for my recliner to come in the mail so I can unpack it and finally have a nice cushioned chair in the living room. Everything around here has been metal chairs or plastic computer swivel chairs. I needed a nice recliner so I can kick my feet up like one of those movie theaters and perhaps take a nap watching a game at night. 

 

Very excited today to finally get one.

I've taken two different kinds on and off for a couple of years and the effects get worse. My doctor wasn't happy, suggested on injectable version! You can imagine my response to that! These statins affect people differently. Thank goodness my other necessary meds are okay with my body chemistry especially the Plavix, the most important one.

 

I make sure to read the papers that the pharmacist prints out with my scripts. Important information in there!
