      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!

LL56s Extrememadden league: TEAM draft this evening ! please read..

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of setting up a dummy franchise for fantasy draft to determine a selection order. I will assign a member name along with a team before hand so whatever order the CPU comes up with will be the draft order. Tonight possibly 10-11pm ? We will draft teams so I need you to be available either via es chat, twitter, xbl party chat ect. If for some reason due to the short notice are unable to be available leave your top ten teams in this thread so I can assign you your highest requested team for your selection. I don't want people to be stuck with a team so please list your teams so you still have some control over your selection.

In order to show everyone it's a fair selection I'm participating in the draft as well eventhough I want the skins. I don't want any complaints to start off about a rigged draft ect lol.

If everyone wants a different time let me know as well.

Sweet. Personally I would like to start at 10, or even 9 if possible as I leave for work at 11pm. But if more people prefer 11, I will simply leave my top 10. Or if someone could email/text available teams at my selection, that would work too. How much time do we get to pick our team?? Dont see any need for more than 1 minute....

Either time works for me.

I guess just tweet me or preferably email me. I can pretty much respond instantly....unless i can get on es chat, but seems like its always full. Twitter is the same as my es username. Email is in contact info, but ill try and just be in a party.

Nice I will be on @ 10...is the league set up on XBL yet?

Going to set it up tonight. When you sign up you need to select a team, I'd rather have everything worked out ahead of time.

I think what he's saying... is that he's going to do a fantasy draft to get a random draft order so no one will feel cheated. Then he'll go by your list of top tem. Say in you want the Skins 1st & the Packers 2nd. If your draft number is 5 and the skins are gone then you'll get the Packers and use the real rosters.

Cool so just pick any team as a place holder for the draft order?

Nope everything is good. It will be quicker because you already have a list of everyone (still need a few more) but anyways this way not everyone needs to be on. You just have them post what team they want after the official list is put out. The old saying I love to use "work smarter not harder" and I figure having a quick automated generator will be less work because we all can see what the draft order is and if people can't make it tonight they still can choose the team they want. Just trying to help out - one of the members here can vouch for me. Jaybrant was in one of my leagues I ran NCAA/Madden at the same time with the same group of people and it was one of the most successful and organized leagues. So I am always here to help.
