      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 head coach, 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!

The injuries to KD and KT may have extended their window actually if it forces them to stay or hurts their FA market 

They gonna have to offer two players on the wrong side of 30 with potential long term injuries max deals. And they have too or else they won’t ever attract a star free agent again.

 

they are finished

Defensively they got worked. Raps were the only ones to do it consistently but they had trouble all postseason.

 

Back to the drawing board

 

The defensive drop off and lack of shooting. Lack of shooting been a problem for them last two seasons but Durant’s injury illuminated it.

 

That team has a lot of heart tho.

I have to say for all Curry’s greatness, never hitting a game winning shot in the playoffs under 20 seconds is a big hole on the resume

They have to hunt down a polar bear and eat its heart, then apologize to it, for Canada to recognize them as champions.

I hope you get famous someday and I hope someone interviews you just so you can give some weird ass cryptic sci-fi response.  I'd love to see it. :ols:

I think Kyrie is more likely to say some **** like that

 

Kawhi would probably be like "whats tomorrow?"

One of the better post-seasons I can remember... I knew the randomness of not having LeBron would cause some good moments.

Adding Marc Gasol was a huge acquisition for the Raptors.  No way they win a title without making that move.

Would’ve been great to have a game 7. Definitely would’ve been one too which is the most disappointing

And the ratings were down!  Fraudulent basketball fans that don’t even know what they missed.  

 

So so many great moments.  The rise of Jokic.  Lillard smacking down Westbrook.  Embiid vs Kawhi.  Giannis running into a literal and figurative wall.  The Celtics crapping their pants.  Great post season.

Casey too. Man won coach of the year and then they saw LeBron and took a dive

Toronto will probably accept this trade of a championship for the one-year rental, but I'm cringing when they start seriously asking him that.  He can do what he wants to do now, like return to his pod and meditate over it.

Already tired of hearing about "The first nba championship outside of the United States!"  You can spend US currency there.  Yeah, technically it's not the United States but let's stop pretending it's New Guinea.

It is kinda silly to say this is the end of GS. Maybe more like Spurs where they contend one year and get knocked earlier one year.

Theyre just getting us used to the idea before they announce the Memphis Grizzlies are moving to London.

Had to look into it, I don't know what the 93 Montreal Canadians did, but the 92 Toronto Blue Jays got invited to the White House by Bush 1.
