      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 Trade Block Thread

Recommended Posts

I know player movement is forbidden until LM is up (found that out the hard way), but i figured it would be a good idea to have a trade listing players up for trade from each team? Just post your available players. Deals can always be done and not made official until LM.

1) Vince Young

2) Ronnie Brown

However, pretty much my only locked down player is Vick. The rest i might not be planning on getting rid of, but make an offer.

send me some trade offers on console. I won't accept them, because we're supposed to be waiting for LM, but that way at least ill have an idea of what you're offering. I'll take a look at the cards too.

BTW, i thought the eagles were the dream team....I havent paid close attention to their roster till now. This is a freakin mess.

Does anyone know why we arent getting the roster update

When was the update?? If it was today we wont get it because the league started yesterday. Online franchises will get patch updates but not roster updates.

I've done some checking through all the updates and these are the rosters from the first. Like Chris Johnson got lowered from a 96 to 94 through to updates and he's still a 96 on my team. The roster update that came out friday had Donnie Avery coming to me and he's a FA in the league.I looked at other teams too like Kerrigan started the year with a 74 but has got a boost in almost every update and now he's an 82. Even if for some reason we dodn't get the 6th update that came out friday it should still download all updates through the 5th and we haven't gotten any with the exception of the 1st that fixed everything from the lockout.

I checked your roster and its not right Ladarius Webb should be an 81 and he's only a 75 on your roster. There are others that are wrong on your roster but thats just one example

I'm interested in Cedric Griffin. I'm also interested in doing a deal for Harvin if you're open to something like that.

Also was looking at Greenway but i doubt your interested in letting him go.

Let me know.

Im also adding Cullen Jenkins and the Eagles fight song to the block.

Im interested in Zbikowski and Jimmy Smith. But I'm going to kick that idea around to see if i can get some LB's from another team. That's what i'm really needing.

Green Bay has a boatload of WR's. I would entertain offers for most of them. Don't realy have a slot threat like Harvin, but we should talk.....

You jerk.

Have you checked the league manager forum yet? Some news in there about your squad bro :)

---------- Post added October-12th-2011 at 06:06 PM ----------

I cant write in the League manager forum from my cell for some reason. Would someone mind linking this thread over on the trade board?

*Please post all new players you are interested in trading/looking for onthe league manager trade discussion board.Don't mind if trade talks spills over to here but I want a quick location owners can check rather than digging in this thread. Thanks
