      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!

Saw it last night.

So I had a great time watching it, first thing I thought it was a little drawn out to start. I was ready for **** to go down. I didn’t like the fat Thor, it was funny at first but then got old. I liked the Thor from Infinity war that comes into Wakanda, that was super badass. I was kinda upset there was no other battles than the big one at the end, I was hoping for more “single fights” like infinity war had but I guess they couldn’t really do that I guess. The final battle was just a couple punches from him, her then on to another avenger. I also really wanted to see Hulk go full beast mode on Thanos and I never really liked Captain America that much until this movie, he was awesome.  Overall I think they did a good job, especially with only a year after the last movie. Infinity war just left me so stunned I guess that’s why I just had more fun seeing IW over this one. 

 

 

Spoiler

I was ok with fat Thor at first, but at some point, I was expecting them to change him into regular Thor and it never happened.  I didnt need fat Thor in the climax.  When he got his costume, that woulda been a perfect time to change him into himself.

A gay character? 

 

I was ok with fat Thor but I did think when he dual wielded Mjolnir and Storm Breaker he would return back to his normal self but instead his hair got pulled back and his beard got braided lol. 

 

I still loved it. He’s done enough as a character. Let him have his cheese wiz and beer

What I didnt get was the Captain Marvel post credit scene seemed to suggest something different than what was in the movie. 

 

Unless, we're to think that wasnt her arrival.

I don’t think that needed to be in spoiler but in Captain Marvel that was her arrival to the Avengers

They explained in the movie it doesn’t work like Back to the Future rules. It’s not going to change the future because that past just becomes the past for your future self. All the events still happen the same. 

 

 

Spoiler

I mean, who's to say he didn't keep doing the Captain America thing, just got married as well?  He still had the shield.

I assume that’s what they were doing on Earth and she shows up, asks where Fury is, finds out and once they tell her what’s going on, she goes to get Tony.

Right, that's what I'm saying, it happens differently in this movie.

She has already been there. They said how long the pager had been transmitting for in the clip and that was with a couple days or something since the Thanos snap. The timeline is that scene happens before we see her in Endgame

A bunch of the Marvel movies are on now, the banter between Ironman and Jarvis is fantastic.

Epic conclusion, though I do agree the first third or so was kinda slow.

 

It was probably meant to be depressing AF, maybe too successful.

I've gotten a little spoiled over the last 10 years, enjoying so much comic hero filmdom. As a result, I was underwhelmed by Antman and the Wasp and by Captain Marvel.

 

Endgame brought me back to being awed and emotionally charged for this franchise. It was incredible all across the board. I laughed, I cried. I laughed again, I cried again.

Loved this movie overall. Loved some arcs(Iron Man), disliked others(Hulk).

 

Two questions:

 

1. What happened to 2014 Gamora? Did she disintegrate with the rest of the 2014 displacements? They used her for a reuniting of sorts then she vanished for the rest of the movie.  Maybe I missed it.

 

2. So what is the confirmed Black Widow movie going to be about?  A prequel or the Search for Spock?

she didn't disintegrate, she was sacrificed for the soul stone in infinity war.  with black widow, i heard it's a prequel/origin story.

He's talking about the Gammora that came back in time with Thanos.  I didn't see her again, either, not even on the GOTG ship at the end. Weird, saw Nebula.

I’m thinking she left after the fight was over. She kicked Quill in the stones and then bounced since she had no connection to the guardians at that point. 

 

Quill was searching for her her at the end so I assume that’ll be part of Guardians 3

I bet that no matter what happens in Guardians 3, that most of it would be about her learning to "love" StarLord again...

Also part of the therapy group was a rad cameo by the great Jim Starlin, who is basically a prime architect of cosmic 70s Marvel. I’m proud to be geeky enough to have recognized it straight away.

350+mil in the US alone, more than 100mil better than the previous record set by Infinity War

 

This whole MCU endeavour could not have gone any better.
