      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!

2018 - 19 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals Thread

Caps fans rooting for the Blues to win a Cup JUST. DON'T. GET IT.

 

Look, here's a quote from the character Syndrome in the movie "The Incredibles" that perfectly illustrates my point:

 

"And when I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions so that everyone can be superheroes. *Everyone* can be super! And when everyone's super...

[laughs maniacally] ...*no one* will be."

 

So it looks like it will all fall to the Bruins to preserve our legacy.

San Jose tried to cheat the game of hockey with that hand pass and was punished 

 

Good riddance

So you want Marchand's name engraved upon the cup on the same ring as the Capitals, forever dirtying it?

I don't know how any non-Boston fan could want Boston to get another championship in any sport.

Rooting for the Blues. Now that we've won a Cup, I want the other droughts to end too. But more importantly, F BOSTON. Those nags have won enough.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post, but there's a very easy vid to find on social media of Kuznetsov being filmed next to two lines of coke.  NO evidence of him snorting, but reading the meltdown on RMNB etc. has been amusing.

Is there a big time athlete alive that hasn’t been around people doing hard drugs at a party?

If Boston wins the Stanley Cup then that will mean that there have only been 5 different teams to win a championship in the last 10 years.

Honestly I'd be disappointed in this team if someone hadn't snorted a line or two.

 

I mean you got the hardest drinking Russians this side of the Atlantic and people gonna get their undies in a bunch over a little cocaine and hookers?

 

DEAR NHL

 

IF YOU DIDN'T WANT COCAINE AND HOOKERS YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE GIVEN VEGAS A TEAM

 

 

 

That being said Kuzy said he bailed and I believe his saintly butt.

I'm watching the finals and it's really hard for me to care about hockey when the Caps aren't playing.  I can watch any and all NFL games that I have on TV, and NBA I can watch any good matchups or any 2nd+ round playoff game, but man with hockey it's just hard to watch without vested interest in it.  But this game has been a bit fun to watch thus far.  I think a lot of it is cause I don't know anyone.

As if they only did it at parties. I have no idea, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't around pretty much everywhere with athletes. 

 

Heck, I bet even AC Green saw it and he definitely didn't party.

Well the other option is Boston, so, there is no other option.

 

Plus, its good to see the 'Ole Bruiser having some success, and outside of Philthy none-the-less.

I can always watch playoff/finals hockey. A random regular season game won’t garner much attention. I can’t watch NBA except the finals, that’s the worst league out of the big 4 IMO. I’ll watch if the wizards are in the playoffs though.

Darrell Green was in the Bible and was a full-on family man when he arrived in DC. They were out partying at the clubs in Navy Yard or Uptown, Green was leading bible studies.

Hopefully he doesn’t get suspended for some games, but last time I checked being in the presence of drugs isn’t a crime.
