      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 head coach, 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 still don't understand why we don't use the team font in some capacity for the numbers/ names. It would be a great way to update the uniforms in a drastic way but still hold onto tradition with the rest of the jerseys.

 

Unless . . . they put a spear on the side of the sleeves with the 70s stripe pattern subtly there...

Nice helmets, but I think they'd look look more vicious with a script R or spear logo. Too much white in our current digs

Those helmets are badass. Would love to have them in the rotation now or with a new uniform design. I love a white helmet, color jersey white pants look. They would look sweet with our all-whites too

I actually love Washington State's uniform. From the cut and trim, to the font and numbers, the color combos and the symmetry, it looks sharp. 

They use a type of gunmetal grey as their alternate 3rd color.  

 

I love them. They are simple and clean. The grey as their third color is a great idea and contrasts the red and white well. 

 

In general, college uniforms are so far and away better than NFL.

Let's face it, our uniforms will just be the standard we've always worn. They've never even tried to tweak the jersey's design. 

 

These burgundy on whites we've been wearing are slick. I like those best. The gold pants ran their course and they were absolutely terrible with the whites. That looked soft.

 

Maybe they'll get an update when we build a new stadium, lol

I like the gold jerseys a lot, but I understand the notion that Gold on Gold would be too much in-your-face.

 

However, I think Gold tops with our current white bottoms would look like a sweet alternate. Show some balls for a change, Snyder/Allen

 

I will admit I have 0 photoshop skills, so Madden is the only way I can show you what I mean, :806:

I would love to see this with the white helmet as a alternate uniform for night games or Thanksgiving day games, start some sort of new tradition.

Looks like the Redskins will be wearing their burgundy jerseys tonight, against the Saints.

The team ( Saints ) announced that they will wear their white jerseys and black pants for the Week 5 game, a slight departure from their usual home game attire, when they traditionally wear black jerseys.

 I bet it is the white pants.  That is fine, don't mind the look too much. 

 

Now, what the Saints wore last week against the G-Men?  That is their best look.  The White jerseys with Gold Numbers and black outlining the numbers and the white pants, they looked good.  Their black pants suck, so glad they are wearing those tonight.

 

As far as our uniform overhaul, the white helmets look pretty cool and I never thought about that as an option, kudos for thinking outside the box.  The problem with our gold, is that it is still not gold to me, and when you pair the jerseys with yellow cleats, looks like San Diego Chicken uniforms a bit.  I still think we need to tweak modernize or go back and modernize an old look but just don't know what combo.

Burgundy jerseys, gold pants for MNF i guess? Or white pants?

 

 

I wish we'd do gold pants for all uniforms. I know people love the white pants because Joe Gibbs always used them but they just look BLAH to me.

I didn't see speafeathers post, I dont recall watching many Saints games where they wear white at home, odd.

 

Probably not, but if it has been confirmed that the Redskins are wearing their burgundy jerseys, then the Saints must be wearing white.

I was really hoping for the white over burgundy unis tonight; the classic, it just looks better. Like winners.

Actually, they could wear pig**** and vomit uniforms, as long as they win I wouldn't care one bit.

 

If Gruden was smart, he'd have them wearing Zubas, and make all the drunks puke and develop blurry vision.  :pint:
