      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!

I'm tired of missed tackles, bad angles, and contact without any attempt to wrap up

 

I'm tired of the run defense being consistently gashed.

 

I'm tired of Gruden and his "What the **** just happened" face.

 

I'm tired of WR's, TE's and RB's running 6 yard routes when it's 3rd and 7.

Let's hope they somehow bring better execution to the regular season games it looked pretty raw during the preseason.

I’m a bit surprised Wentz isn’t starting for the opener Thursday night. Might not see him until week 3 or 4??

I watched him take snaps in practice last week and he was gimpy, his knee actually buckled one time on his drop.

Interesting. I was thinking all month he was going to be on schedule to start week 1. I guess it’s a smart move by Philly then. I also hope Philly loses each game that Nick Foles starts. I think we have the best chance out of our entire division to win our week 1 game actually :) i could see the eagles losing to the falcons, the cowboys losing to the panthers, giants losing to the jaguars (if the jags are anything like last season) and us beating Arizona.

Yea I heard that Ravens punter was for some reason in the very worst part of Baltimore, at the very worst time at 4am.

The guy is from Norway, so I'm guessing he probably had no idea what kind of place it was.

 

Short story, I once left Little Italy with my wife and two small children, Florida plates, GPS took me North for some reason and I very nearly had to run over people getting out of there, the streets were full of people and not people worthy of asking directions of. It seemed pretty lawless and life threatening, guns were out, I fear He took a wrong turn there leaving the stadium...and ended up in Hell.

Holy **** the Cowboys cut Dan Bailey.. that's a shocker to me.. Carson Wentz won't be ready till week 4, week 5 if he's lucky.. and The Back-up MVP has had a horrible preseason..pheagles could have a rocky start to the beginning of their season..

They might.  But this is the same thing people thought when Foles came in last year.  He struggled in one game, then figured it out and played really well.

 

I kinda expect him to play well in the regular season.

I very much hope I'm wrong.

 

But, "I have a bad feeling about this" is kinda my mantra for the entire NFL season this year for some reason.

For any of you Draft King degenerates out there you have to love Adrian Peterson this week and its not just the homer in my talking. I think he is 4600 or 4700, absolute steal, He will have a big game on Sunday..  Im predicting 98 yards 2 TD's
