      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 Hangman- C_Hanburger

Is it Possible? Terrelle Pryor as #3QB and we keep another player on the 53? M.E.T.

Recommended Posts

Much like Brian Mitchell, can Pryer give us another player on the 53 by being the 3rd QB? Maybe be able to keep another WR? We would have to cut McCoy *I* know...

Secondly, is Pryer fixable as a viable QB? Kinda of a RG3 re-boot but have Gruden coach him up?  Most of his problems were similar to RG3, 1st read/run. But given time as a WR and knowing the routes, can he be a "project". He's faster than RG3 is now since he didn't get injured...

 

I am curious if this might be an option if Cousins doesn't sign a LTD. Pryer MAY be more conducive to coaching (sans EGO)

This IS FAR REACHING *I* know..and may be in fact a stupid idea...what do you think???

This was a briefly dismissed half page conversation in one of the threads already.

 

The QB3 will be throwing to the PS and all the back ups every day in practice, so no.

 

The QB3 doesnt dress on game day, so thats a no.

 

Trent Williams can play TE. Should we not have another TE3 on the roster, so we can squeeze a random PS player in at a position that possible starters are competing at? No.

Not arguing with you..just looking at options so that *might* make sense;

Some teams only carry 2qb's so there should be a way to get PS work in

Mitchell was dressed and came in the body bag game as a QB so I would assume Pryer could dress as a WR and fillin at QB if needed as a 3rd QB

From what I read Nate is competent and *could* be a viable. IF Cousins is hurt long term..that screws up the 2018 plan if he is not signed to a LTD and Nate would get a good look. We won't get into the playoffs with McCoy IMO

 

As for starting a thread...all the Cousins threads were closed..it's not a WR question..and I had a question...

 

So, I'll just go back to not posting..no big deal. Enjoy

There's a thread about Pryor specifically, and a "random thought" thread for miscellaneous stuff. Either would have worked. Nobody's telling you not to participate

Ya'll are ruthless for the sake of being ruthless, completely unnecessary.

 

I don't know about QB3, but if our top two go down in a game, like another body bag game, Pryor is who I want under center.  I wouldn't give up Nate to do that though.

If there was a second game like that, Im sure Pryor would be the one to fill in , but listing your WR1 as a QB3, just makes no sense. What player would ultimately be more important if both Colt and Cousins missed several games, than Suds?

 

 

You know whats a waste of a spot on the 53? ****ing long snapper. You mean you can find someone who can play LB, TE or Oline, that can long snap a football? ****ing ridiculous. Im also shocked that not one person in the world can both punt and kick. XP, FG (same ****), KO and Punt. 3 whole ways to kick a football over and over? I dont get it.

Zero chance Pryor is the "#3" QB. If Nate shows no improvement (or regresses) then there could be a 4% chance that Pryor is the "emergency QB"...and yes there is a difference.

Is Sudfeld eligible for the practice squad?

plenty of people can punt and kick.  But carrying only one  means you're screwed if that guy gets hurt.  I do know if I was a GM I'd try to get two guys who could do both.  I'm also surprised there's no Danny Whites or Tom Tupas these days.  As for long snappers, it seems like they're a bit slimmer than your standard OL these days.  I guess it's so if the defender across from him slams him into the ground while his head is down there's a smaller gap in the line.  And we've seen a few teams have embarssments when their LS goes down during a game.  Though they could solve that by trying to get a few guys who could snap and give them all a little practice time

Although Pryor could play QB, he would only do so on an emergency basis. Pryor's presence doesn't really factor in at all as to the final 53. The team will keep 2 or 3 QBs. If cuts anyone, it would be Sudfeld. The only other possibility would be due to injury.  But if the team keeps 2, there will be a practice squad QB. So Pryor wouldn't get reps there.  No matter who is kept, Pryor only plays QB is everyone else active is hurt.

 

You could use Pryor for some gadget plays though

Jordan Reed is our emergency quarterback, FYI.

This is true.  LOVE the thought though.....what if JR (perish the thought) is injured?  Just when we are in the doldrums before fun-time, you HAVE to post this.  Thanks Hanburger. Thanks Mayor.  Just what I need to think about at nights now. :) HTTR

Then Jamison Crowder is the emergency quarterback.

 

We can't set Pryor aka Pryer back from progressing as a WR, and make him the #3.

 

Pryor is also in a one year "prove it" deal, no way he is even interested in being QB.

Bad idea.  Cutting loose mccoy, who is a decent backup on an affordable contract, and could re up for a similar contract when this one expires, or cutting loose sudfeld, who is an intriguing prospect, for a converted wr who is playing on a 1 yr contract is a bad idea.  I can see a situation where pryor walks next year and we wish we had mccoy or sudfeld back.  An Ltd with cousins might make this option more attractive, but at this point in time I wouldn't consider it.  

 

How confident would you be with sudfeld being the opening day starter in the next year or two?

Jay Gruden was a QB and also knows  our system well. Is there a rule against having a player/coach on your 53? If so, then **** you Mara!

I'm fine with that. Honestly there is no point in having a 3rd QB. If your top 2 QBs get hurt your season is over anyway. I'd rather use that roster spot for someone who can at least maybe step in to play special teams or backup a line spot or something.

If Pryor had anything to offer as a QB, he'd be doing that instead of playing WR. That said, if he needed to step in as an emergency QB at some point, he'd at least have some idea of what he is doing under center.

I think thays the point of the thread.  The OP isnt asking if he should be our long term answer.  Just if we need to carry a #3 when this could could fill in.  After all, once you get to your #3 you probably arent expecting to win much.
