      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!

Wow, a uniform making you want to not go to the game....WTF be glad you have the opportunity to go...:doh:

I know right. I have to wonder if some of these are just joke posts. It's a uniform people. It's the play on the field that I'll be paying the most attention to. With the cheerleaders in a close second.

EEEWWWWW (Ron) BURGANDY ON (Ron) BURGANDY!

I like the idea, something different.

If we win, people will be calling for it vs. Dallas.

If we lose I will log on here tomorrow morning and their will be 10 threads calling for Zorns head because he let the players wear it.

That was such a bad combo. To each their own I guess. Reminds of the seventies unis which were the worst. That year... the color wasnt even burgundy... its was more like purple. Yeah Purple and gold... great combo.

I do like the arrow though.

I have to take a "wait and see" approach. B on B sounds okay... but could look very NFL Europa...

I guess we will find out.

So let me get a jump on 75% of tomorrow's threads.

Skins win: all burgundy for the rest of the year!!!!

Skins loose: ban the all burgundy!!!!!

Either way: All white vs. All burgundy stats- Campbell can't throw the deep ball with burgundy pants!!!! Portis' YPC down 45% in burgundy pants. Landry hits 95% more fatal in "all blood" burgundy.

The two "burgundy's" don't even match, they're distinctly seperate colors almost. This is going to look absolutely gross. This will be pretty embarrassing to go out looking like that on National TV. Not a good idea. I like white with burgundy pants...keep it old school.

:doh:

It only seems that way. In day games, our uniforms look brighter as the sun is always hitting them. During night games they look darker. They're the same color.

I realize the image was photoshopped, but our pants aren't the same color as our jersey's despite the fact that we call them both "burgundy"(hence the quotes). They're different shades, (in real life) at least to my eye. They don't match is all I was really trying to get at. i think it's a bad combo; it's ugly. Just my opinion.

UGH!:yikes::excited:

Im not sure if I like it just yet. I guess I'll have to wait to watch it in the game. I love the White on White.

This one looks a little bit like the Hokies, so I think I might like it.

I just heard from Murf who has confirmed with team sources that the team will in fact be wearing burgundy on burgundy.
