      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!

Guys I need recommendations on the next TV series I should start watching.

Two episodes in to S3 of Jessica Jones, and it's crap so far.  The show so far is centered around the Trish character and her annoying mother. It's not quite Iron Fist level awful, but if it doesn't pick up in the next couple episodes I will give up on it.

I mean, it could be both.  Great in quality and dangerous in messaging if they end up making fascism and genocide look cool.

Hmmmm. I loved Man in the High Castle.

It's pretty good, though some of the characters are a bit annoying at times.

I think the next season out in the fall is the last one.

I played this game as a young teen.  I don't recall a whole lot other than the  factions of Humans, Orks, and Eldar, (which was pretty much copied from plain Warhammer Humans/Ors/Elves),.  The Space Marines were the elite fighting force for the humans.   And then there was this Emperor dude who was unnaturally old but kept alive by machines but completely immobile.   Oh yeah, and some people had psychic powers and there these Inquisitor dudes (working for the Emperor) who would go around and hunt down the psychics to either capture/kill.   And I think there were these Navigator guys who were the only ones who could pilot spaceships but also had to be psychic.

Warhammer 40K is still fairly popular these days among war gamers (at Games Workshop and other gaming stores), but it also gets a lot of usage of late in tabletop (or online) role playing and along with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay,  I think tends to focus on hunting down enemies of the empire and brutally eliminating heretics and people corrupted by Chaos.  It's sort of known for it's 'grimdark' atmosphere.

I generally have mixed feelings about Warhammer campaigns, because the setting is interesting, but they often get really dark and the characters end up doing pretty awful stuff.

 

 

 

Of course the Dawn of War video games were pretty fun and popular back in the day (I don't think the most recent version was as well rated).  I really liked some of the earlier ones where you got to play as different factions.

Watched season 1 of Bad Blood on Netflix.  It's about the mob in Montreal and one mob family.  Pretty good so far, just started season 2.

Let us know, man.  That's been in my queue for a while now, just never pulled the trigger to start it.  Trailer looked interesting enough.

Yeah, their radio guy cursed them when he called them the Dallas cowboys of the division. :ols:

 

Also think King was trying to take the Concussion Championship away from Jordan Reed. 

 

The violin guy at the Halloween game...What the ****.

LOL, I want a full line of coach Brown motivational posters.

 

I knew the season was in trouble when the coach's dog got borderline trampled after leading the team on the field before the game.

Dude, not what I expected to happen this season.

 

Spoiler

Them dropping 8 straight games after being picked to compete for a national championship.  And I just read an article that says Coach Brown was charged with 

felony blackmail for impersonating a lawyer in emails sent to some newspaper.  WTF?

Crazy, I loved watching that coach, granted, he went overboard on calling himself Hitler to that German player/manager.

Can't wait for when the Expanse gets released December 13th on Amazon Prime. It's going to be hard getting used to seeing Burn Gorman in a science fiction show. I've only ever watched him in Turn and Game of Thrones, and he never struck me as the rugged type of character that he's cast for in Expanse.
