      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!

The Official Washington Wizards Thread: The JOHN WALL ERA

Recommended Posts

If I had to put money down, I'd say Cleveland gets the No. 1 draft pick. Not only do they have the record, but someone will want to make up for Lebron's departure.

Na, they gave them Lebron because they wanted him close to home and at less risk to be corrupted. They protected their investment. Nobody cares about Cleveland outside of that.

But again, in drafts with no clear franchise player, I don't think Stern makes the effort to fix anything. Whatever happens, happens.

Wall & Ilgauskaus just got ejected

Wall might catch a suspension as it look like he threw a punch

They should do both as Ilgauskas really started it with the 2nd elbow to the face

I'll give credit to Wall for not backing down and McGee for having his back.

**** Miami though, if I'm Flip I'd send in Seraphin or someone to just hack mercilessly at Lebron, Wade, and Bosh.

someone needs to teach John how to throw a punch....that was pretty terrible....brought flashbacks of Semin.

I'm pretty sure Wall will get a suspension for that, which really sucks....with me going to the toilet bowl on friday. damn it Lerch (I mean big z) you piece of ****.

I applaud Wall for retaliating..Big Z/Howard and the rest of that counterfeit team are a joke!!!!! We may totally suck this year but atleast everyone stepped up and defended Wall, the rest of the Heat just stood around like a bunch of cowards.

I don't think I've ever rooted against a team more than I will against Miami in the playoffs. **** these losers.

They are very easy to hate, although for some odd reason, I don't think my hatred for them has reached the LeBron Cav's hate.

It's amazing how two different fanbases see the same game entirely different.

According to Heat fans, the Wizards are instigating fights to get under Miami's skin.

Also, John Wall needs to grow up. :ols:
