      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!

The Merged x115 Adventures Of The Fashion Police Weekly aka THE Uniform Thread

Recommended Posts

I was told absolutley that the uniform was being designed by Reebok and were to resemble the 72-73 superbowl uniforms with the yellow helmet with the script R. I was also told that they would be worn at the home opener agianst the fins!!
Forgive me if this has already been corrected, I didn't read the whole thread. Allen's SB team did not wear the script R. They wore a helmet similar to today's helmet.

Carry on.

I'm leaning towards a permanent uniform change featuring the Redskin original colors.... deep burgundy & GOLD. The current helmets are fine.. but I'd like to see the pants go back to the gold like in 70's anniversary uniforms (even those exactly if they like) and a more classic and reserved deep burgundy / classic white jersey opposite the gold pants.

As for the R helmet... I think that's going to be a nice touch for a couple of teams... especially honoring Lombardi on the anniversary..... but I don't care for a permanent switch to that style.

:applause: I'm still waiting for someone to Photoshop the current uni and helmet in a deeper burgundy and true gold (not ketchup and yellow mustard)

My personal preference imho is the championship White Jerseys and Burgundy pants. Black shoes or white shoes are both fine by me.

For what its worth, I was in the Short Pump (Richmond, VA) Redskins store and the manager told me that they didn't see rolling out the Anniversary uniform until right before the start of the NFL season. He said that they were told at a meeting that the Skins petitioned the NFL to wear the jerseys three times during the NFL season instead of once in the preseason and twice during the regular season. I believe they won that appeal. The only confirmation he gave was that they did reveal the yellow, scripted "R" helmet would be used. The jersey, trunks, and socks are still top secret.

Hope that helps.

Gimme the all-whites with a muddy field. White is the first to show dirt, mud, the game. the only thing missing is some kind of white helmet to top it off--maybe just a simple spear with no stripes! get some mud and grass stuck in it and hangin out during your first series and we're all set to kick some colorful, nifty designs-fancy-pants @55!

Sorry to say this but if my teams QB looked like this after one series I would SERIOUSLY start to worry.

For the record I quite like the Burgundy pants and white tops idea.

oh snap! you just got owned.

now, on a completely related subject....with all the discussion about the uniforms, i think some thought has to go into what the players feel comfortable with. i mean as fans we can all have our favorite uniforms and some of the older guys will want the burg colors and some of the younger guys will want the whites, but some of these players like to feel comfortable in what they are wearing too. i know it's not about the uniform, but it sort of is about comfort. i mean portis and taylor were willing to take fines just to be comfortable in their uniforms.

I happen to like the all white uniforms how soon we forget that it was the all white that got the ball rolling for us during that stretch we needed to get in to the playoffs :D . Yes, I guess I'm kind of superstitious too do not mess up a good thing:laugh: .

I'm with you on that!! :cheers:

We started losing last year with the all whites.

Diehard is one of the most respected members of this board and your response just makes his point for him.

BTW now is not the time to be making snide remarks about not being American. If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention. :mad:

Tell it to someone who cares. If he feels he can insult anyone he wants...then he's open game. I don't care who you are, cause you don't care who I am. Fair?

IF you're so smart, then why'd the Canadian start this board from nothing & have it become what he envisioned it to be. Namely the official board of the Redskins. Surely a 'smart' guy like you would have done this way before him.
