      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!

ROFLMAO!!

So regardless of the evidence he brings foward, and regardless of the fact that he is a witness for the PROSECUTION now...none of that changes things in your mind? I'm glad law enforcenent doesn't think like you because criminals would never go to jail.

 

Obviously if law enforcement finds something it'll be a huge deal imo. Dukes a top program.

 

Im not going to believe a thing Avenatti says at this point cuz his credibility is a joke. Dudes basically all over twitter posting evidence. You think that's how a proper police investigation should be conducted? Guys an extortionist. At best he's also a star****er.

 

 

 

Anyway glad UVA won. Hope they win it all Monday night. Now go Tech beat State!

That looked extremely painful.

Definitely sprained it.

If he's out, then their defense is going to be so much less formidable.  This could open up the paint for Michigan State.

Work the ball inside!  The perimeter defense is smothering.  Their rim protector gets injured.  Work it inside for god's sake.

How can you say his credibility is a joke?

What has he claimed to be able to prove that he didn't already have the goods?

By the time this is over Duke will wish Nike had paid him.

He's under federal investigation for extortion, wire fraud, and tax fraud last I checked.

That kid is tough as a two dollar steak.

If McQuaid is hurt, they're going to have trouble cutting into this deficit.  His shooting has been just about the only thing that's worked tonight.

Lousy foul call on Winston.  The guy tripped on his own.

Michigan State chipping away at this lead.  Their defense has really sacked up and Tillman is finally playing a little tougher.  Texas Tech can't get the lid off and they're starting to tighten up.

Beard going to have to call a time out and rally his team.

What has e LIED about?

There are reasons law enforcement flip criminals who are guilty that can produce evidence of a larger crime.

That's his fourth foul.  That bad third foul is going to end up being very costly.

That turnover was the ballgame.  WTF...

Michigan State could never get their offense going this game.  Credit the TT defense.  Disappointing, but Final four is better than most of the other teams, including Duke, Kentucky Kansas and North Carolina.  I will be rooting for TT in the Championship Game.

All defense championship.  To my eye, Texas tech has the look of a champion, but in a single elimination basketball tourney anything can happen. 

 

What a great day.  Kayak fishing then the final four.  I’m going to have to clean the house or something tomorrow to balance the scales.

Texas Tech is so gritty.  They battle for absolutely everything.  If you show them the ball at all they're going to go after it.  I think they're going to beat UVA at their own game and out-tough them.  What a great run they're on.

Michigan State SIX trips down the court ZERO points in the last minute thirty of the game.
That was rough watching them collapse.

Two federal charges for fraud, one for extortion, and being fired by a client for being dishonest aint a good look.

 

 

Final game should be a good game. Rooting for the home team but Tech winning it all wouldn't be a bad thing.

My only concern is with the loss of #11.  He messed that ankle up, there is no way he's going to be able to go on Monday.  That's a really big loss.

When you take down mobsters you rarely get saints as witnesses.

I guess Texas Tech getting punked by a below average WVU team a few weeks ago in the B12 tourney was a wake up call.

 

Good for them. Now beat UVA.

 UVA wont win it all.........book it.

 

I actually really dislike the matchup for UVA... same lockdown defensive style but TTU should have an edge rebounding. UVA’s offense also goes through spells where it disappears, which will be exacerbated by TTU’s defense. 

 

Game will be ugly to watch though, total rock fight the entire way. Realistically, 45 points may just win it.

As a guy without a dog in the fight, I was hoping Auburn would win tonight since they are the most exciting team of the 4. But they didn't win and didn't make the plays they needed to make to win. I know this final should be a low scoring game, but I think as long as the teams are executing well and making shots, the game won't be boring. If the game is sloppy, full of turnovers, and bad execution on offense, then yes it will be boring.
