      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 Rules - Every Member must read.

Recommended Posts

OFFENSIVE RULES:

- You may ONLY roll out when under pressure (things like you see the line collapsing and you need to make room) OR on a designed QB roll out play - now if no one is open by all means scramble and get some yards (but not every play is going to be where you have NOONE open - and if so you should start using different routes)

- Use the whole playbook, not just MONEY plays (means plays that always are clutch and will work every time)

- Do NOT drop back for 15+ yards (even 10 yards all the time is unnecessary)

- FB dives may only be run with the FULL BACK

- Goal line formations may ONLY be used inside each 10-yard line (offense and defense) OR in SHORT DOWN SITUATIONS (1-3 yards to go or inches ONLY)

- Jumbo packages can be used

- You cannot run a play more than TWO times in a row. Therefore, that means if you QB sneak twice and do not make it, you cannot do it a third, time

- WR CANNOT be put at TE and RB

MOTIONS:

- ALL players MUST be set at the snap of the ball, unless there is a green auto motion involved. Using motion on a running play is ok as long as not abused

AUDIBLES:

- It is never acceptable to audible down from a set to get a WR at tight end then throw a route to him - if your WR is placed at tight end, please put him on a block.

Mix up play calling on offense and defense (do not continue to audible to the same plays)

DEFENSIVE RULES:

- Please mix up your defensive play calling

- You may play any position on defense but cannot move more than two players. If you move the second player, you must stay on him until ball is snapped. This does not include plays where you are shifting.

- Do not bump n run every down

- Goaline can be used on short down situation ONLY on offense and defense. Short down situations meaning 3 yard and inches

- You cannot drop 10 or 11 back in coverage. Two Linemen must rush the QB.

- You are not allowed to use a formation other than FG/Punt formations to block a FG or punt/

- Do not consistently stack the box (meaning 9 at the LOS)

SUBSTITUTIONS:

- Defensive players may NEVER play offense and vice versa. This is CHEESE

FOURTH DOWN RULES:

You can go for it on 4th down:

-Anytime you across the 50 yard line UNLESS up by eight. MUST kick FG, if not in FG range or too much wind you can go for it (but do not always make excuses to go for it)

-Anytime in the 4th quarter unless up by 8

-Anytime in Overtime

-Any fourth and goal situation (but do not always abuse this rule even in real life teams will line up for a FG)

-Anytime on 4th and inches IF on or passed opponents 45

-You can fake punt/Fg one time per game. "Faking" is in punt/FG formation. "Going for it" is in an offensive set. That is the distinction

TWO POINT CONVERSIONS:

- In a tie game in the 4th quarter to go for the win

- Anytime in the 4th quarter while trailing realistic rules apply

- Anytime you are ahead in the 4th quarter to make it a three or 7 point lead

SPORTSMANSHIP:

Do not purposely try to blow your opponent out. Once the game is decided please just run the clock and if they are out of timeouts utilize the kneel play in all playbooks when under 2 minutes

MISCELLANEOUS:

- Never quit a game (QUITTING WILL RESULT IN LOSING ALL RIGHTS TO COMPLAIN) Stay in the game and allow the process to work

- DO NOT COUNTER A CHEATER WITH CHEATING

- No glitches period (I keep up to date with most glitches through operationsports and other means so if I hear complaints I will understand if it is an exploit

Basically a general rule of thumb is - play the game like you see a normal football game being played.

Dude only called 11 passing plays, so not really his fault. Anytime you get 10 turnovers, you're going to score a lot of points. Thats one of the problems with these extended quarters..ironically it was Kiing that wanted the longer quarters.

I really wasn't trying to run up the score I was just running the ball pretty much every time. I can't say I'm going to go qb Kneel in the beginning of the third quarter cuz then I'm back 6 yard and then I punt so I can't see that making the GM move any faster .I did every run I could think of just wanting a yard or 2 but they would break for a TD but I learned my lesson lol
