      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!

Annual "Where Do I Watch Games Thread"

Recommended Posts

So it seems that every year an ESer or two goes onto college, bravely serves in the armed forces overseas, or just plain moves. This year, I have been lucky enough to find the woman of my dreams! . . . in Delaware. We're engaged and I'm all moved in to a house with Dish Network (Switching to Direct TV is not an option for her), but a FiOS internet connection.

I did some research on some old sites using .Guy.'s ES search engine ( http://www.google.com/coop/cse?cx=007335040014827223562%3Atxxpw2r44_a ), but these threads are outdated and you can't step in the same Internet river twice. What I'm looking for is a site that I can depend on to stream good-quality Redskins games each week. With the Ravens coming up in four days, I'm asking ES to give me and some others on the site a little help.

Going to sports bars is a bad option for some of us because we're either underage or will likely get a little too verbal for the rest of the Eagles-loving patrons.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

In order to avoid the site being taken down I can give you a hint. ATD.

Figure out the rest ;)

The good people at HomerTV also may stream games but security is tight ever since last year, when the site kept getting taken down.

atdhe.net will have links sometimes but it becomes very difficult to find streams during the regular season.

StreamTV is not bad (http://streamtvnow.tv/board/)

$20 for the entire season

They covered just about every game last year. Most of the streams were good. About a quarter were extremely frustrating to watch.

The payment method is a bit tricky (and doesn't exactly give you warm fuzzies RE: future identity theft).

Definitely more reliable than justin.tv

Sure would be nice if the NFL would just broaden the reach of sunday ticket and make it available through more providers.

Here is one I have been using for awhile. It usually has pretty good quality and a lot of sports. You'll need to download the software but it's safe don't worry. Click the link at the top for software and just check everything out and get acclimated to it before hand so you're not in panic mode trying to see the game.

Since this is bound to be buried/merged each week, it may need to be stickied.

Also, living outside Pittsburgh, I will desperately trying to find this thread each week to see what sites are working and which ones aren't.

The link that I had to HomerTV now goes straight to ESPN. I found the new link through a lot of google search, but they require a registration and a confirmation e-mail to use the site. I registered but I never got the e-mail. I'm guessing it may be like Demonoid now in that it's by invitation only.

streamtvnow.com worked for me last year. It's tricky to setup. They have a test stream if anyone wants to try it. Just pm if you need help.

I tried ustream.tv last year just to try it and see if it worked. It was really easy, but I don't know about the situation as of this season. I don't know a whole lot about this stuff.

I think NFL.com's Game Rewind package is the way to go if you don't mind watching games on a delayed basis. The games are shown on demand and are commercial free. You can also pause, rewind, and fast-forward just like TIVO. Their current package includes all of last year's regular season games and all of this year's for $39.99.

I've looked over and over and I can't seem to find anything saying it is or not. I live all the way across the country and don't want to miss it...even it is a pre-season game. Any information if it is or not would be great. If not, then maybe a place to watch it online???

No, it will not be nationally televised.

I know that NFL Network will air it again at some point (Friday?) but for a schedule you would need to do a search. There was a thread on that somewhere.

As for online, I have no idea.
