      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!

why didn't they foul?

 

not used to a Spurs team doing something completely stupid

You’re right, but fouling wouldn’t have saved them.  They were down two possessions with like 20 seconds left. The nuggets would have had to completely choke at the line.  That last shot Murray hit ended the spurs.

Definitely feels like the wrong team won (and I say that very rarely)

 

Its nice to see an area not get their heart ripped out, I guess.  That was a mercy miracle if ever there was one not losing that game.

Celtics are selling out to wall off Giannis but the rest of the Bucks aren’t hitting shots.  Bucks can’t win if that continues.

Now they're picking it up.  Actually considering this game is tied with Giannis only scoring one field goal, that's pretty good for the Bucks.  Bud is going to get Giannis going after the half, he makes good adjustments.

Free throws keeping the bucks in it.  Celtics are shooting north of 50%, Bucks under 40%.  Bucks are lucky to only be down 2

Really depends if Gannis can break through the attempts to limit him.  If any team has the smarts and depth to take a single player out the game, Boston can.  Looks like Stevens has everyone in single file line up there right now.

I can’t stand Boston. 

Curious, why?

I don’t know what the Bucks can do different. They can hit more shots but it was a 20 point game. 

 

they really need Brogdon for this series

I'm just gonna be honest.... Penis envy. They have more than me, and gave rebounded from their triumvirate better than my team. They were led by an MVP  calibre player,  who basically exploded, and they got better afterwards.

 

I just can't be happy about any of that.  Not at all.

At least your honest.  I like well coached basketball teams, I would've followed Celtics/Spurs if I left the Wizards, gone to games they in town.

I’m surprised by how much complaining Draymond Green gets away with afterbeing hit with a tech.  Most players would be tossed if they just ignored it like he does and kept screaming.

Play defense.  They let the Celtics shoot 54%.

Kerr has never learned to hide Curry on defense.  He coached his way to a loss in the finals against Lebron by letting Lebron pick his defender (Curry) any time he wanted.

Those kinda fouls that refs call should be able to be challenged. Really bad for the NBA to have that nonsense called. Talking about Harden hooked the guys arm and there being no contact.
