      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!

A guy at a Redskins Store (can't remember which location) told me we'd be wearing the throwbacks today. So either he was misinformed, or else the team was trying to create a diversion.

Why don't we just go with what we wore during the 70th anniversary season? Those were tight!

AMEN! I really like those uniforms, but some might say that it would stir up bad feelings of Spurrier.

I used the search function tool to find out why we didn't wear the 75th uniforms for this game. I wonder if we are going to only wear them during the division games? Does anyone have any news on this? Thanks! :eaglesuck :gaintsuck :dallasuck

I thought the Skins were going to wear the yellow R helmets and throwback jerseys today. I was looking forward to it.

Anyone know when they'll wear them this year?

Thanks

It was never stated anywhere that the Redskins would wear the throwbacks today, just all speculation.

Supposedly the Anniversary uniforms will be worn at one home game that hasn't been announced yet.

Originally I had heard they'd be doing it for a couple of games.

Now, the Redskins have confirmed only 1 home game.

My guess:

1. Bears- a primetime (NFL Network) game at home.

2. Eagles- also celebrating their 75th. We'd wear ours, they'd wear their butt ugly throwbacks.

I thought the Skins would be wearing the white retro uniforms with the Yellow R cap today, as we did in 71-72. Does anyone have any information on when these uniforms are going to be worn this year?

OK now this is just stupid. They should wear them early as possible. From what I understand, they can only wear these ALT jerseys like four times a year or something. My gut tells me that they are going to wear them during the division games only and maybe on the road in Dallas or something. I guess who knows after that. I don't know why they have to be so secretive. I think that its stupid.

I was under the impression they were going to wear them yesterday. I was surprised, and somewhat disappointed, that they didn't.

Agreed. Yesterday would have been a good time to wear them. Maybe next home game?:whoknows:

My search function does not work in case it has been posted.

I know we all thought that the Redskins would be wearing the Throwbacks for the Dolphins Home Opener. I found this on Redskins.com and does this mean they will be wearing the for the Giants Game? :whoknows:
