      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!

I don't pretend to have an answer that would please you tbut if you just want to make something up: that walker was hit in the face with a shotgun not a projectile. Maybe the aim was off, it blew off part of her chin. Maybe only a few pellets entered the brain and put her in stasis for like a minute Max. IDK lol.

And to those talking about Shane, I don't have as much of a problem with the actor as some. I suppose he could be better but his attitude is no surprise to those of us that cracked open the source material.....

honestly i enjoy shane's character. you can't take your eyes off him when he's on screen because you have no idea when he is going to kirk out and do something crazy.

since i've never spent any real time in the south, i guess his accent doesn't bother me because i don't know any better.

i do have a feeling he will meet his demise soon. like someone else said, shane's character is probably acting very close to the source material in the comics.

I was hoping I wasn't the only one who liked Shane's character. Loved when he went to get the truck and he went off on Dale for staring at him and telling him that if he needed a radiator hose he would give him a call... LOVED that part.

Possible spoiler but pretty much my own speculation: Do you guys think that the bar scene pretty much gave the viewers the information that Rick was given at the CDC?? Rick put a bullet in the first guys head, and then put 2 in the chest of the big guy and one in his head while he was on the ground. I'm thinking this says that the guy at the CDC whispered in his ear something along the lines of "EVERYONE is infected".

I think that's definitely what the Jenner told Rick. Not really a spoiler but will ninja anyway: Jenner told Rick that everyone is infected. That was what Rick was going to tell Morgan on the walkie at the start of the first episode of Season 2 but changed his mind. The group then left the CDC and went back to see the Vatos at the nursing home to warn them. It was too late though, some old people died, reanimated, and when the group arrived everyone was dead. This scene was left on the cutting room floor though because they couldn't edit it right. You see bits and pieces of it if you watch any Season 2 preview on YouTube. Hopefully it shows up as a deleted scene on the DVD. Watch the opening scene here and at the 3:46 mark. These were deleted, too bad, look interesting.

Ninja, information based on comic: The comics send the group to the prison next. In the youtube preview, at 3:46, could they be at the prison? Or has someone re-watched Season 1 to verify that part of the preview takes place where the Vatos were?

Great start to the 2nd part of the season. Rick is a bad ass.

Also, women on the show shouldn't be allowed to make decisions on their own. One shots a person in her own group and the other wrecks her car by going out on her own.

Nice call, for the ones in here who said they wouldn't know about Sophia in the barn, because Otis was the one putting them there.

Ninja It was definitely the Vatos place. This clip is a little better. Start at the 1:03 mark and you see some of the footage. Shane still has hair too since it was before he shaved it off after the Otis thing.

It very well could be what he told Rick. However, it would just go to logic to assume that they would shoot them in the head just in case, after they were at the CDC. I can't remember where I saw it, but knowing how walkers operate (just regarding the brain functions) they would want to prevent anyone from becoming a walker so it would be a preventative method.

You can get it from Itunes for $1.99 per ep standard def. Standard should be fine for a laptop it's more like DVD quality. HD is $2.99 per ep.

I guess maybe go to Starbucks or somewhere for download. Usually takes me about 8-10 minutes per ep. Good luck, I guess it's up for debate if it's worth it or not - depends how desperate you are :)

Dr. Jenner says this to Rick: "It's too late. You're already the walking dead." It is something that is said in the comic book.

Like I said in an earlier post, I think writers have something against independent women. The moment a woman on the show does something on her own it always ends in disaster.

I cannot stand her character (liked her on Prison Break :whoknows: ) and cheered gleefully when she wrecked.
