      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!

If that's true...it means we are again giving a minor nod to the Gibbs era over the George Allen era (which is good, in my opinion). 

 

I like that we wear dark at home...but also like a little wink to the 1980s in the Dallas rivalry by forcing them to wear their darks in DC. A subtle, but classy move!

 

Edit from the article: 

 

Archer also notes that Dallas will wear their road blues on the road against the Redskins. For older Cowboys fans, this is incredible. There is something that just screams NFC East about Cowboys blues against Redskins whites in Washington. It’s classic and should be done more often.

 

I dunno man, I still have nightmares of Rocket Ismail opening day '99

  • The Washington Redskins will play their first "Color Rush" game on Thursday night against the Dallas Cowboys.
  • The Redskins are supposed to wear all-gold uniforms, but the team feels they are garish.
  • As of Wednesday morning, the team is said to be ignoring the NFL and will wear all-burgundy instead.

Well since you're too damn lazy to read the Rules, just go ahead & do it. What's the worst that could happen? :)

The Redskins should have just stuck to their regular burgundy on white for this game. Who cares it it is Dallas. Why the heck do we want to change just for the sake of getting them to wear their blues?

I know we use to wear whites at home in the Gibbs I era. But we wear burgundy at home now. Stick with it.

Which has nothing to do with your original question. You wear the white jersey to put them in their blue jersey because they hate playing in them. They tend to lose wearing them. And they're currently 0-3 in road games this year. :)

Redskins social media has updated the logo and the merchandise leads me to believe the same as usual.

 

What I would expect:

-  Normal Burgundy Helmet (NFL Rules, can only have 1 helmet, so cannot change helmet color)

-  The gray facemask they have done last year or the past two years, I think it's been 2

-  No stripes on helmet, with same logo.  I personally wish they'd throw the "old school" logo on the helmet

-  Standard throwback jersey - Dark Bugundy with Gold (not the yellow gold) numbers/trim

- Gold (not the yellow gold) pants

I don't understand why they don't just chuck a logo on the helmet. The color can't match (unless you put a big-ass decal that is the right color) but the logos should at least match.

I hate the new throwbacks we have been wearing the past few years, More so the helmets than anything else, Just looks like the equipment manager got lazy and decided to leave the stripes off. The Jersey and pants are cool though :)
