      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!

Yea, he's just looking at the Fox graphic you posted.

Their game is televised on CBS, which you can only see if you click the link.

I tend to like ripple for streaming sports.  Quality is always good.

 

Warning: You might want to adjust your screen since some of the background ads on the page are NSFW.  I usually put the stream in it's own window and just shrink it down the size of the video player and toggle between that & full screen.

With Verizon losing exclusive mobile rights to games, the following method just got a lot easier.  This is for people with streaming TV with local channels (YouTube TV, Sling, PlayStation, Hulu with Live TV, etc.)

 

I live in Indiana.  I don't have cable or satellite -- I use YouTube TV.  Neither of the first two games were locally televised here, but I watched both... legally.  I do not know if this method will work with people who have Sling, Hulu or any other streaming TV provider with local channels, but I can't see why it wouldn't.

 

Make sure you have your TV provider's mobile app downloaded.  Now download an app called "Fake GPS location."  It's available on both ios and Google Play.  The logo is an emoji with a primitive looking cellphone.  Now you have to put your phone in "developer mode" (Google this if you don't know how -- it's easy.)  In the developer mode, choose "Allow mock GPS locations."

 

Go back in the Fake GPS location app.  You should see a map of the United States.  You can zoom in and out of the DC area.  Now set your location somewhere in DC and hit the "Play" button in the lower-right-hand corner to begin broadcasting a fake GPS location around DC.

 

From there, go to your streaming TV app and update your current area.  Once you see that the app thinks you're in DC, select the local Fox or CBS station.  Once it's playing on your phone, cast your phone's broadcast to your streaming box/stick or your TV directly if you have built-in Roku, Amazon, etc.  Voila!  You're done!
