      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!

It's annoying how they are entirely stuck on stupid and can't stop talking about how they feel while in dangerous situations. Good episode all the same.

As long as they don't revert to cheap scares and have zombies pop in during the middle of them talking about how they feel I think it will be all good.

As much as I looked forward to this it is still hard to get over the amount of stupid displayed by this group, I don't see how they would survive a single day in reality although I get that they have to push the plot along.

You're driving down the highway, mile after mile, chattin as you roll along @ 60 mph, but as soon as you hit a traffic jam a swarm of zomboids appear. Couldn't see 'em miles off on the open road you just crossed, they sneak up to 20 yds and THEN you notice.

Hide under the cars and they wander by, even though we've seen them sniff you out in the past (last season when the rain washed off the corpse stew for instance) but no, let's crawl right out and get their attention. One checks out the camper, so OF COURSE let's drop the pieces of the pistol to attract him. Being chased in the woods? Automatically trip and fall down. See a deer? Don't worry about being eaten, stand there and let your kid try and walk up to pet him.

They really don't have the survival instincts of a dodo.

I'd love to see them find a bunch of walkers sitting around watching Oprah reruns though.

I don't get why the dead people in the cars they came up to on the highway aren't zombies.

it seems like the zombies eventually die, or they starve to death.

Last night they stacked the commercials in the last 30-45 minutes so they could have fewer in the first half. It's not usually as bad as it was the 2nd half of last night.

I did not even see that ending coming. I thought it was his sign form God. Damn!

I knew something was going to happen to the kid from the season 2 promos. And I figured something was going to happen when they kept showing the kid smiling. I thought the deer was going to go crazy on him though.

I hadn't watched the promo's so it came completely out of left field for me.

I was waiting for it! Like somehow the deer got infected.

I also love when the guys cut into the dead walker's stomach to see what he'd eaten.

I had to turn away during parts of that scene. And I didn't watch when he was crushing skulls.
