      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!

Goodness...we are going to use analytics, measurable data, and mathematical analysis to aid in shaping our team going forward? Shocking, and l o n g overdue.  Smart guys/teams win.  Nice. Hail

It's a good start. But it really only matters if the person with final say thinks it does. Football people have a longstanding tradition of thinking of themselves as progressive and open-minded only to retreat into their decision-making shells once they learn something factual, yet counter-intuitive to their understanding of the game. Let's hope we've got some open-minded people making decisions and utilizing whatever data these additions provide.

This post is a little dated, however I was at Father's Day dinner at a Japanese steak house in Sterling, and had the pleasure of sharing a table with Pat Fischer, #37 of the old time Redskins.  He's 79 now, and I'll be honest, I didn't recognize him.  He was there with his daughter and her family.  We were chatting because the food process was taking forever, and she told me who her dad was, but said I probably wouldn't recognize his name.  Even through he pre-dated me, I certainly knew who he was, and we had a good conversation.  

 

Anyway, thought it was cool.  I told him my son was named for Sean Taylor, and he got a kick out of that.  :)

I think my favorite is Phillip River's pullout game. 

 

I think Brady would scoff at the mobility slight.

i had a dream last night that our first play from scrimmage in the week one game was a run up the gut, guice broke through for like a 25 yard gain.... but then he got bottled up and started running backward and the refs didn’t call foward progress and we ended up with just a few yard gain... wtf dream guice!?

 

Also, if i could get my quarter back to have any of brady’s attributes i’d roll the dice.

Lol some fool on Twitter is trying to tell me that Alex Smith was pedestrian in week 3 against the packers. He was 12/20 (8 missed passes) with 2 TDs and 1 interception. That’s not bad at all. That’s actually very impressive.

True, but it's pedestrian because Alex Smith is pedestrian. I mean, just look at his names: Alex. Smith. There are so many Alex's and so many Smiths, you can't ask for anything more boring than that.

 

I'm convinced that having an interesting name is 50% of what's required to be a famous franchise quarterback. I mean, think about it. Sure, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson aren't so out of this world, but the rest..... Jurgensen, Theisman, Staubach, Favre, Fran Tarkenton, Roflsberger, etc. For every possible misspelling of a QB's name, their chances of success and popularity go up by at least 15%.
