      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!

Now don't start that again.

I've been following the Skins/Caps/Wizards my entire life, but I just haven't gone out of my way to watch the Wizards this year.

that's because they are bad...which would make you a bandwagon fan ;)

I'm a bandwagon baseball fan....if you even want to call it a fan...at least I admit it.

Ted was lucky enough to get handed a couple of all stars. It wasn't magic.

Every successful rebuild requires a good deal of luck. We could definitely use a lucky man in charge. Hell I hope he buys the Redskins.

that's what happens when your team is bad and you commit to rebuilding....you get all stars in the draft and build around me.....if it wasn't Ovi and Nicky B...could have been Crosby or Stamkos.....

Caps committed to building through the draft after failing "the redskins way" and now we are a cup contender after adding pieces via free agency and trade.

Wizards will do the same....it isn't going to happen over night though...might take a couple more years before we see the process starting to work. We really need a new head coach though

The problem is, in the NBA, the lottery kind of throws you a wicked curve ball.

Look at next years draft. Wizards have to hit the jackpot in the lottery to have a chance at a decent building block. Or be lucky as hell.

there is a rule against that...not sure which league has it....but an owner can't own three major franchises....Ted wouldn't be able to buy the skins....danny is never giving that **** up anyway!

I somewhat agree with you....I think we can get a decent building block regardless...but we will need to hit the jackpot to get an all-star to run w/ Jwall

I'm a bandwagon baseball fan....if you even want to call it a fan...at least I admit it.

If I started rooting for another team I'd be a bandwagon fan.

Want to call me a fair weather NBA fan? Fine, I'm not totally against that.

With the way I fervently follow Tech Football/Basketball, the Caps and the Redskins I hardly have enough time for the Wizards. I still love them, I still want them to be successful but its just too painful to watch a team that's this awful.

So no, not a bandwagon fan. I could never call another NBA team "my team". The Wizards are my team, I love Wall and what he brings to the table but I don't have the energy or emotional patience to get caught up in a team that's so god awful.

Boy these DC teams sure make sure you watch every second of a game.

I am not saying that the Wizards are going to be a championship team, but I think every team who competes for championships has a guy like Evans on their team. Last night I think I heard Buck say that there might not be a spot for him on the team next year. I say why the heck not??

Does Ted have any kids? Maybe he could give one of his teams to them and take the Redskins over.

Yeah the only way Snyder sells the Redskins is if he goes broke. The man is clearly snakebit though, maybe it will happen.

Well he's a FA. But yeah, I'll be hot if they resign Howard and let Evans walk. I'm down with a modest little 2 year deal. I like what he brings.

BTW, Julie Donaldson is a pig.

The tank is strong in the Wizards but the Jazz just wanted it more(lottery balls that is). Some of those kids on the Jazz must have been on the take, they were airballing left and right.

Mo Evans is garbage. Give him the vet min but if he wants even a penny more, show him the door.

We swept the Jazz this year lol. Pretty embarrassing for them.

Yeah, I know that, but I just can't imagine letting a player with that kind of motor walk out the door.

As for Julie Donaldson:

Swear she wasn't this bad when she joined a few months ago.

Maybe Chick knocked her up.

I like that Evans at least tries. More than I can say for a lot of the team.

Never said he was Kobe. I just think he should have a spot on this team next year. Wouldn't max out if we let him go...

Why are you in here anyway? I will tease you plenty enough come playoff time

Thank God we finally won on the road again. I didn't want to hear us dragged out every time a team threatened to go winless on the road.

Hard to believe that we're still only third in the lottery rankings after this kind of year.

I am telling you all, just because this draft looks kind of weak, the Wizards will win the lottery again.

I'm leaning toward Kanter.

Go watch vids of him. Dude is just big as hell. Not tall and lanky and like Javale. Tall and as thick as a tree trunk. He's got great touch around the basket. And he's mean. He's not some soft, ***** euro like a Baragani in Toronto or even Dirk. He loves to bang down low. He's got a decent and still developing mid range game. Put him at the 4 and Javale at the 5 and see what happens.
