      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.

      QB Colt McCoy

      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

      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!

Eclipse was terrible as we figured it'd be. The acting is sooo bad in those movies. I can't even think of an adjective bad enough to describe it.

Edit: Uh oh, Mark, that sounds like trouble :silly:

I love the Big Ten Channel! Sorry, Time Warner. You not only don't have NFL Ticket...you won't offer the Big Ten Channel. 3 years since and I have NO REGRETS!!! Not to mention coverage of big events like The Masters, US Open(Golf and Tennis), British Open, PGA Championship, etc. etc.

I never paid for it anyway. They always threw it in for free. ;)

Same here. But from reading this board, there were a lot of folks here that didn't have the skillz to get it for free.:cool: At least I now don't even have to bother calling them up.

I always told them "I already pay for HD". I was nice, but declined to pay for superfan for HD, when I already paid for HD. But I have had DTV for over a decade...so they were very helpful.

The best part of superfan is being able to watch all of the games over the next 2 days. The redzone channel is useless to me because of that.

EDIT: I could easily afford it, but it made ZERO sense to me.

so i did missionary work for a week it was more of a medical mission and it was very satsfying we helped like 500 people a day. What was really gratifying was just seeing all these people with so much appreciation for what we did. I think i found it especially pleasing because I was helping people out in my home country, they reminded me of my own family and the hardships they have gone through.

I said the same things to them. Even told them I was thinking of giving up Sunday Ticket altogether if they didn't throw in the Superfan for free.:silly:

I've had them for well over a decade, myself. I think that's why they didn't even hassle with me about it. However, a guy I work with called them up and tried the same thing. They told him they couldn't give it to him for free.:) I told him the trick was to call back and get a different person. Eventually one would give in.
