      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!

How about a gold jersey on a few occasions? The Georgia-Tech football team sports a shiny gold jersey that looks pretty cool...and something similar could look cool for the Skins as well. Gold jerseys, white pants....just once in a while....

wouldnt mind seeing that. But nothing like some of the teams new jerseys. Gotta keep it classic!

I'd like to see us do something with the dark uni's jerseys. Maybe make them look more like these jerseys pernamantly, but keep our present helmet. Our current darks are kind of ugly, so I'd prefer the whites. Although I'd love to see the mustard pants come back.

If this were really in our power, I'd want the players to choose what our standard unis home and away would be.

And if the team chooses white-on-white (the "ice-cream man" look) for luck, as I believe they actually did at one point in '06, so be it. We want the players happy and winning, don't we?

:cheers:

The off season fashion police return ... I feel a merge comin' on

Honestly. These are the uniforms we won three Super Bowls with. Keep them the same. You can't replace history.

No, black pants is not a good idea. If we want to change, then we should wear gold pants like the Redskins are suppose to do...

If there is change it should be retro, nothing black please, that would not be burgundy and gold. Thanks.

I am down with darks at home with gold pants, and then the normal chamionship unis on the road. That would be fine. I would even be down with the old spear helmets at home. But, please keep the Indianhead and wardrum logo for the road, just like 2002. But, burgundy and gold at home would be sweet.

No kidding. Enough with incorporating black into your unis when it was never your color to begin with .. ahem .. lions ... in order to attract the gangsta demographic.

As long as we win, but really let's not get to crazy in any uni changes only going retro is the way to go. We don't need to be changing any logos or anything like that. I would like all burgundy at home, or burgundy jerseys with gold pants, but keep it classy and old school.

This is more like it:

The helmet looks too XFL, and the huge feather on the side looks too gimmicky. What's wrong with what we're wearing now? Unless Snyder is looking for a money grab by changing the uniforms, which I wouldn't put past him.

Red shirts at home sucks! Marty rocked the boat in 2001 because he is a control freak.

I guess he felt that going against 20 years of tradition, badgering Darrell Green and starting Tony Banks at QB would...

...damn Norv wasn't so bad after all.:doh:

I'd really like to see a uni upgrade. even though the redskins have very traditional uniforms, i think you can make some subtle touches, to make the redskins look more 21st century, while still maintaining the retro look (seahawks, bills, vikings, chargers)

I hate the white jerseys! we need to move on from the gibbs era by bringing back the burgundy

I have a bet that I am about to win, but I need official verification. When the Redskins wore the throwback unis last year, with the yellow helmets and pants, just verify that they were at home, and also who were they playing.

I know you psychotics will know.

Thanks!
