      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!

The only rehab in question is that of Keith Marshall. What is it now, 3 years straight on NFL injured reserve ?

Ran the fastest 40 time at the 2016 NFL Combine, at 4.3. But can't seem to survive an NFL training camp.

This is the name (along with Robert Davis) that keeps coming to mind when i get excited about a player who was injured. Every year he was so hyped for having size and speed and vision and stuff, but in my opinion he (the old Marshall) is the same as this guy Byron Marshall. Meanwhile we've had guys like Bibbs who play every game and can't get any respect. But i think we cut K. Marshall because he couldn't stay healthy.

Yes Marshall was cut I believe prior to training camp last year. I disagree with you on Bibbs. Is he a nice complimentary back sure but I much rather have CT than Bibbs. Didn’t he get hurt which allowed Marshall to play?

 

Regardless I can’t see Marshall or Perine making the team with Love on board. We’re not gonna carry 4 rbs and I don’t think either is PS eligible. In my opinion running back is the easiest position to pick up a player if you’re depth gets hurt.

By the way speaking of Robert Davis, he is definitely our version of DK Metcalf. I’ve never been a believer that a guy who is as cut up as he is translates well to the field but who knows? Maybe this is his breakout year.

Didn't seem to translate for Safety position

I did hear on the radio last week a quick comment from Gauldy (sp?) that the rehab process was not going as quickly as what the team had hoped.  I don't know if that was based on any real information, and if so whether that simply means that the healing process for him as an individual is just going to take longer relative to others. (i.e. there's no issue with re-injury/other setbacks, and he'll still be back near 100%).

I’m hoping we draft a viable back this year.  One that can potentially play all 3 downs.  I actually wouldn’t mind taking Love late if we re-sign AP.  Whether we put him on IR or PUP, there’s a good chance we have to shut down CT later in the year.  

Ya i think the RB position is the strongest group on our Offense

Ha!  Forgot I posted that... thanks for the reminder :)

 

Group has awesome potential, but legitimate health concerns as well.  Gonna keep my fingers crossed.

I see JP Finlay tweet out that he is on the field but not wearing a jersey.  I guess that means he is not at 100% / cleared, otherwise he wouldn't have bothered with the tweet.  We are at 8+ months.  He had a lot of complications so delays shouldn't come as a surprise, if indeed what you heard is correct.

I just got a Sleeper notification that Guice will be 100% and full-go at training camp.

Sometimes it does.

 

Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly, but didn't he get ripped towards the end of his career, when he was actually on the decline ?

Almost as if getting ripped was going to save or prolong his declining career ?

I could be wrong, and not remember it clearly.

The most important ability is availability; doesn't matter how good you are if you can't get on the field.  Looks like Perine might get another chance after all.  Guice and Love both miss camp (and probably more); start off this year just like last year AP, Perine and Thompson.  Hopefully Chris Thompson can stay healthy.

Done meaning you think he’ll miss a second straight season? What I’m gathering is that he’ll miss the start of training camp, possibly a couple of weeks to let the hamstring heal.

This can be common as a compensation injury when coming back from an ACL. The same thing plagued Dalvin Cook coming back from his own ACL tear. I hope it doesn't, but these things can really linger throughout an entire season. Especially for a guy who hasn't spent a significant amount of time in an NFL conditioning program to begin with--he's already been stuck rehabbing most of his career rather than being able to learn how to take care of his body throughout a season like a pro. Shoot, young players commonly have hammy issues for that very reason even when they AREN'T coming back from an ACL.

 

So we may need to be patient.
