      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'm so pumped for the fight tonight, yet have no guaranteed why to watch it. Hoping to be able to be around and find something. Almost thinking of waiting and downloading in the morning. I'm expecting this to be one the best fights I've seen which means I will surely be let down...

I think Diaz shows he is a class ahead tonight. I'm a total homer here though. I love Condit, I just really think Diaz is in mid stride and it will take the very best to put a stop to his run. Diaz by sub after dropping Condit with body head combos.

Werdum-Nelson is real interesting. I think Nelson is JJ savy enough to stay out of a sub so I think he wins a decision.

Kos rides one out too.

one of the worst accidental low blows I have seen from a kick. might stop the fight.

edit: he looks good to go now but right after he was rolling around the octagon.

One of my HS football coaches had the cure for nutshots. Dude needs to sit indian style, extend his arms out to the side. And have someone lift from under his arms and bounce him up and down on his butt. You'll be good to go. It worked for us. :ols:

Sucks that firstrow went down.

There's always sunshine on the other side of the pond.

(My best TK impression.)

New intro gets a thumbs up by me, the walls breaking apart is a little cheesy, but I still like it.

I was hoping they were getting rid of the nu metal intro song as well.

first row sucks. Constant ad in the circle for me. Tried 3 links. Also supper choppy, but that is probably just my crappy work connection.

I've got a decent stream off of firstrow right now. No complaints what so ever.

And an ad blocker takes care of those annoying ads.

Barao looks really sharp in all areas, love his jab. He has good reach for the division and he uses it well. Surprised at his takedown defense, didn't know it was that good.

Barao has to fix that gas tank by the time he gets his title shot, which could be his next fight.

GSP ruined Koshceck, he doesn't react well to punches anymore.

K-1 Koscheck is in the building, the one who forgets he once won a national championship in wrestling.
