      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!

I know this is my first post, but i come in peace. Im a known vegas gambler, and i have correctly predicted the last 3 NFL Superbowls, well last year i was wrong on one of the teams. I had pats vs. vikings( so i was wrong on that)

 

But i know for a fact that the skins will make the playoffs this year and either reach the nfc championship game or superbowl

 

You dont have to believe me, but i would NOT make an account to troll.

 

Just dont be shocked when you're skins are in the the superbowl, and that superbowl will be Brady's last game

 

His first post mentioned that we'd at least reach the NFC Championship game. 

 

So no guarantee of Superbowl by this internet shaman. 

 

That said, we are doing way better than I expected coming into the season. 

 

Still a loooooooooong way to go.

...this feels like 1986 all over again.  We have a really good team, but there are others (1986 - Giants) (2018 - Rams and Saints) that look unbeatable.  Still I am in for the ride....I think David was a 100-1 underdog to Goliath, so who knows.  In 1986, I had a season ticket single in the upper deck endzone (section 526).  I could not see half of the endzone below me, but I was THRILLED to have it.  The Parcells coached/Simms QB'd Giants beat us 3x that year which made the run in 2005 so sweet (beat Parcells (Dallas game), beat the Giants, and beat Simms' son - Tampa Bay Game).

So we make it to the playoffs, Colt McCoy relieves Alex Smith and throws 5 touchdowns in one quarter of the Super Bowl? That would be..... interesting.

No I think you had it right. You're referring to the year we made is to the NFC Championship game and lost to the Giants right? That was 1986. We were 12-4. Very good, but that Giants team was pretty elite. The 1987 season was the one where we won it all with Doug at QB. I don't believe the Giants even made the playoffs that year.

...no, we make the playoffs, but get hammered into the ground in the NFC Championship game by the eventual SB winner.

This was also the famous "Jay waved me off" game that soured the relationship between Doug and Jay.

Correct.  The Giants went 0-3 during the strike, 6-9 on the year, and dead last in the NFC East.

Very encouraging.  Can you tell us who our starting RB is going to be?  Inquiring minds want to know.

 

I bet he knew... but would we have believed him if he told us? Would we have persecuted him and driven him from the board as a false prophet?

 

Let’s review the timeline...

 

1/31/1988- Doug Williams leads the Reskins in a record breaking performance to a blow out Super Bowl upset

 

30 years pass...

 

08/16/2018 - SkinsDude1988 predicts the Redskins will win the Super Bowl on  02/03/2019 (or at least get to the Championship game)

 

08/21/2018 - 5 days later, Doug Williams goes rogue and brings in Adrian Peterson for a “surprise visit.” The Redskins sign him.

 

08/21/2018 to 10/31/2018 - Adrian Peterson plays like John Riggins and the Redskins are 5-2 and 1st place in the division

 

02/03/2019 - ???

 

1988... the Doug Williams connection... what is going on? Only time will tell.

This season reminds me of the 85 Bears, AP instead of WP, Alex instead of Jim, our "D" could very well be as dominate down the stretch. Well guys we need a damn fridge. Can Daron run short and goal?...lol

I thought your post was a joke at first but now of course in usual Redskins fashion I have some weird type of hope that maybe your weird formula for gambling is right and we have a shot.  So now this is usually when this team lets me down, only when I have hope :(

You guys are set up to control your own fate, but most likely, you may have to come through LA to get where ya wanna go.  Best of luck this week.

 Well you have a pretty tough game yourself this week. The Saints at home are nearly impossible to beat when they get on these rolls and their fans are sloppy drunk and dressed in raggy Mardi Gras costumes, screaming at the tops of their lungs.

I'm still a little ticked off that McVay is there instead of where he was. He can definitely find ways to get Smith more comfortable in the pocket and throwing to those guys that are called wide receivers.

I would love to see the Rams go undefeated.

And have Jay top McVay in the NFCCG at their place.
