      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!

Wondering where all the media love is THIS off season.....

Can you imagine the pressure KC is feeling right now with other players being asked to finance his contract!!!

 

I guess 84 Mil is a great consolation prize though if you are planning on a *short* starting QB tenure 😜

 

When Cousins was having his discussions or whatever with TB12, they must have skipped over the part where Brady knew the importance of not going for every dollar because you need other things around you. Brady can overcome more than Cousins, but still...

Can you imagine if the Redskins with Keenum beat the Vikings with Cousins thi year?

 

The Vikings message boards would be in total server-crash meltdown.

That Vikings offense should be killer. I really like Irv Smith, the kid from Alabama, and the O-line should be improved from last year. Hope Cousins' year is an impressive one, not just by putting up a lot of numbers, but by distributing that bad boy to all those weapons and keeping the defense on its heels. Having Kubiak there should help tremendously. I hope so, for the Vikes' sake.

10-6. NFC North is tough, and you can never count on defensive teams like CHI to replicate past seasons success.

 

Someone just needs to tell dude that Jesus aint a big fan of turning over that there pigskin. Would likely put up a doughnut there after that.

Cousins said the narrative will be that he went to the next level if the team does well even if he doesn’t post “gaudy statistics.”

 

Hmmmm... Sounds like to me he wants the D and ST to help him win some games so he can look better than 50....   lol

There is nothing wrong with that at all...except when you were the highest paid QB at the time and thought you were untouchable and Brady like... lol

I saw where Sims (can't remember his first name lol) suggested the 49ers may try and trade for Cousins if Garoppopalooza falters in 2019 lol...while there's no way in hell this will ever occur, I do love the thought of Cousins going from the Skins to the Vikings to the 49ers all within like 3-4 years. Especially considering that his whole "For the first time since high school I get to choose where I play" thing would get flushed down the toilet with a trade lol (not to mention he probably has a no-trade clause in his contract).

Who in the hell would take on that contract? Especially after what they paid JG? It wasn't like Cousins tore up the planet in Shanny Jr's offense.

Except he wasn't in his offense long enough to see though. So Kyle might think Cousins can still be a viable QB for him in a different and less dysfunctional atmosphere and with better WR's.

The problem is the dysfunctional brain between KC's ears when things start to get tough. That's why that contract is insane.

I didn't even notice that lol...it's also pretty confusing when the sales guy says "This is the creme de la creme" of grilling and Kirk asks to see the next level down from it for his OLinemen...then a moment later says "I want them to get the best" lol...Um, no you don't. You want them to get a step down from the best. And considering he talked about getting a fully guaranteed contract from the Vikings for $84M, saying the grills were "not cheap" seems...well, like a bad decision, let's put it that way.

What in the wide world of sports is this dude doing? He just needs to stop sending press releases to promote things he's doing. If you're doing something for your OL, just do it. No publicity necessary. People appreciate it much more; it seems more genuine.

He really has been screwing up when it comes to grilling, apparently lol...

 

- First he videotapes himself grilling steaks with foil on the grill...

- Then he videotapes himself placing steaks on a cold grill--didn't bother at all to make sure the grill was hot first--and he's even flipping them over while the grill is cold...

- Then he buys grills for his OLinemen that are a "step down" from the creme-de-la-creme of grills while simultaneously saying they deserve the "best" grills...

- Then he leaves without buying the propane and propane accessories he went to the store for in the first place lol...
