      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!

Lillard is the third best guard in the West now.  He's better than Kyrie Irving.  He's better than Westbrook too.

 

If Anthony Davis were to go to Portland, that would be a very powerful team.

I mean, its a star driven league, Kyrie did nothing when he was the only star and LeBron is sitting at home right now.  Kyrie played his ass off in that finals, if he can't or doesn't do the same against the Bucks, I'll concede.

I think Utah will get there in time, if Donovan Mitchell can reach his potential.

 

The playoffs are once again reinforcing that you need one of the best offensive players in the league, in his prime, and an awesome group of role players around him in order to be successful.  That's as it should be.  But the problem becomes when a formula like James Harden + an awesome supporting cast isn't enough to compete for a championship.  Have to keep players of Harden and Curry and Durant caliber from teaming up with each other.

LAC just a team of savages.

 

GS should have never let the series get to 3-1. That's bad juju...

Golden state losing twice to the clippers is surprising.

Houston is gonna run the Warriors out the gym next round.

 

If "playoff Harden" keeps showing up probably not. Harden is already inefficient during the regular season but his percentages go off a cliff in the playoffs like clockwork.

More likely that Houston is gonna run Houston out of the gym.

 

Playoff Harden gonna be like Ocelot in MGS2 and permanently take over regular Harden's psyche and sink the Rockets

Dubs are screwing around but they'll still win this series and another ring. But the dynasty is on its last legs.

Are you both watching the Warriors? They don't have an "on" switch.

Pretty sure Playoff Harden didn't get any buckets in the 1st qtr either, and relied on a horrendous performance from Mitchell to get the W.

 

Go scoreless against GS and they'll be punishing the Rockets to the point where his beard starts falling out in patches 😂
