      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

He's going to be expected to do this every summer there is a tournament...

 

A downside to picking a stud player from a country where he will dishonor his name by not playing for his national team.

Tired, possibly injured, and eliminated early.  This should prepare him mentally for the upcoming NBA season.

I’m fascinated by this new breed of nba players, to which Wall belongs, that are both old school hard asses and total dandies.  They walk around scowling while wearing flowery prints that they obsessed over and cost them a fortune.  Like giant divas, without the negative connotations.  No one would have predicted this 15 years ago.

For real, Russell looks straight flamboyant sometimes,  but If you didnt know who he was and underestimated him he probably octagon you right there, black out and everything.

I watched my first start to finish WNBA game tonight.  I wasn’t feeling it at first, but my daughter needed to see her old man supporting women in sports.  She gets really excited to see the “girls” on tv getting cheered on.  She talks pretty good for a six year old too “they’re sort of like the wizards, but they win, so they’re better.”  Im very proud.  

 

I was rewarded with a tight finish that was highly entertaining.  Worth watching imo.

So basically he'll miss the first two weeks or so of the season.

 

Heck, with our luck I was expecting he tore both his acl and meniscus....

 

Given the nature of injuries in dc sports, its entirely possible he tore his acl & meniscus and they diagnosed it as a ruptured thumb ligament

Delle Donne reportedly got MVP, glad to see them as good as theyve probably ever been, hard to ignore and not respect.  Was at the elimination game last year, if they make finals again, I'll go again.  I dont find WNBA as entertaining as NBA, but when you there you lose track of that.  Same way I felt first time going to DC United game.

 

What's it going to mean if every team Ted owns wins a championship before the Wizards? Is that reason for hope or a warning?

First female member of the 50-40-90 club.  The club only has 9 members and she’s the only WNBA player on the list.
