      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 can't hate GSW.  There's no one I dislike on that team, even though I think Steph Curry can be a smug little dude sometimes he's a hell of a player and when he's cookin there's not many more fun people to watch.  I like Draymond's fire, I like that Klay is content to be the 3rd or 4th wheel and light it up from time to time even though he could be the 1st or 2nd dude on another team.  Durant is an all time great, there will never be another like him.  I like Boogie, even though he's not gonna play.  And the guys on the bench, especially Livingston and Iguodala.  

 

For Toronto, there's no one I dislike either. 

 

But there's Drake.

 

**** Drake.

 

Go GSW.

I would like Draymond Green if he weren't a dirty player and he's also moody and far too willing to put himself over the team and cause drama.  If I were his teammate I would hate dealing with his bull****.

 

Curry is a great teammate but he rubs me the wrong way.  He comes off like a rich brat.  I don't dislike him, but he is definitely annoying.

 

Durant's a ****.  Nobody likes that guy.  Steve Kerr is a low key jerk who puts on a front of being this affable, humble niceguy.  He has to put up with a lot though, and he's brilliant and he's a consummate competitor and winner.

 

Klay Thompson is cool though.  Iggy is one of the best guys in the league.  The role players are fine.  It's pretty much just Draymond and Durant that make the team unlikable.  That and the fact they've made the competition a farce the last three seasons.

Think y'all need to do better. Aren't you aware that it's in vogue to hate perennially successful teams in pro sports?

 

Btw Draymond is a jackass. But I get the feeling he's the jackass that you always accept when he's on your team.

Even as a Wizards fan, I got really nothing against the city of Toronto or the Raptors.  However, I want them to be swept because of Drake.  LOL

 

I'm gonna defend Draymond for a second here...he's an invaluable member of their starting 5.  No, he'll NEVER be the best guy on a team, but his intangibles, intensity, and overall defensive awareness are off the charts.  He's a guy who holds everyone accountable on the floor and I really think if he was to miss an extended amount of time in the finals for whatever the reason, the series could possibly go 6 or 7 games.

Draymond is one of those "from the mud" types.

 

3 star recruit, 2nd rd pick, told he had no real position in the league

 

That jackass element of his game is a necessity

The one hope I have for the Raptors is that a couple years ago Leonard was dominating the Warriors before he got injured. Could be a revenge/redemption storyline in play.

No. 

Green has really toned down the whining too. He said he realized it was being a negative and was embarrassed and had to stop.

That's a good take on Kerr, I forgot about him.  He's smug, too and a humblebragger.  I'm probably sure MJ had his reasons for punching him during practice back in the day.

I think Draymond Green is the most fun player to watch on the Warriors.  No he's not the best or anything, but he is the most fun to watch to me.  The dude brings it so hard every damn play and plays with so much heart and passion.  He's easily my favorite player on the Warriors.

I can't respect any man that goes below the belt

I want him to go below the belt on Drake.  I'll shell out for a Draymond jersey then

Yall are hilarious with the Drake hate, I dont get it.

 

Raptors going to get mauled in this serious if they dont come correct and play damn  near perfect every quarter like the year LeBron beat the 73 win team.  For every quarter the Raptors look like nobodies home, Warriors can have a quarter were all the lights are on, destroying any lead you build on them.

I think it’s an annoyance when someone tries to insert themselves in a sporting event in which they aren’t playing or coaching. He acts in a way that is beyond a super fan.

I try to reserve my rage for things, he's our generation's Spike Lee for the knicks or Jack Nicholson for the Lakers.  No, I don't want for every team if that's what you're wondering, but that's not what we're talking about.

That might not be what YOU'RE talking about.

 

Dude is a groupie/cheerleader (thank you, @Mr. Sinister ) and looks annoying AF.
