      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!

Here it is Redskins/Cowboys week and nary a single shot fired in anger.

If Harvey Martin were alive (gawd rest his soul), he would throw a wreath in here.

The ghosts of Longley to Pearson on Turkey Day...

The Fun Bunch leaping over a protesting Dennis Thurman...

Diron Talbert's mouth...

Roger's pass to Tony Hill over Lamar Parrish...

Aikman to Ismail in OT...

Daryl Grant lumbering for a TD in the 1983 NFC Championship...

Theismann running around like a panicked chicken to run out the clock in 1978...

C'mon...admit it. This is a week we all circle on the calender.

Let's act like it.

Booze, who the heck do you think you are coming in here and trying to start a fight.

I remember those times...and they are over. Tom vs George...Over the hill gang and all against Doomsday. It's done !

Face it, until the Skins can win more than 1 out of 12 games gainst the Boys...The riveraly won't return.

I don't see it starting this week either.

I guess I'm a little more concerned about the overall health of our team (not injury wise).

We've got players questioning the coaches, the owner questioning coaches, the head coach questioning (and apparently harboring a grudge against) the owner.

All these things add up to major distractions and I'm concerned that we will not be able to even field a competitive team this Sunday or next for that matter.

I love the Redskins, always have always will, but, I just can't seem to wake the ghosts of old and get overly excited for this game. Maybe if the off field distractions weren't rearing their ugly head once again and I was hopefull like after the Eagles game that this team was learning how to play football and stick with each other I would be more excited about facing Dallas.

Unfortunately the one coach in this league that will prepare his team better than anyone following a loss is going to be on the opposite sideline this week. My only hope is that we get a few luck bounces and play to our potential this week. If that happens, maybe we can turn this thing around. I don't know if I am in the minority here on this board but the future (at least this year) does not look bright. If these types of stories continue to surface about Snyder and Spurrier, we may be looking for another coach next year.

I sincerely hope this is not the case. I believe that SS will succeed in this leage, given time. Hopefully he can find a way to motivate his players and have them show up mentally each week. So far, that has not occurred.

I know what you mean. I think right now you guys just caught us in a "huh?" stage.

I want to win this game...but have trouble getting fired up.

Maybe its because of the Musak in the background.

hmmmmm, the Bee Gees.....How deep is your love?

No way.

You are all listening to the Backstreet Boys and N'Sync.

The Bee Gees are way too intense for you guys.
