      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 head coach, 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!

Redskins about to sign Captain Buttfumble

Recommended Posts

I guess this is close enough to a welcome to the Redskins thread given the circumstances. Welcome, Captain Buttfumble!

That has to be the most haunting fumbles in the history of fumbles...but I believe in ya mark. I believe in Colt McCoy and Mark Sanchez!

 

You just have to believe hard enough

Kaep is better than every QB on our roster and every QB that they went searching for.  But this is who they settle for???  They never even looked Kaep's way.  This team and front office is satisfied with being an average at best team.  That's all we are.

Who would you rather have:  Johnny Manzel or Mark Sanchez?

He he hasn’t played in two or three years... he might not even be football shape.  He’s never said he’d be willing to play for the vet min...  there is a reason why he isn’t even a back up on any team and that reason is not politics.

The only way to find out what he's got is to give him the same tryouts that they give any other ball player.  You don't know what a player can do until you give him a shot.  Instead, we go get trash ass Mark Sanchez???  This league loves employing useless retreads, but a QB that led a team to the SB sits without a call or an invite.  This is too funny.  This organization isn't serious about winning.  It shows on the field every week.

 

 

To answer your question, I would rather have Kaep if he was in good conditioning.

@NikeRedskin7 if that shows we are not serious about winning then wouldn’t that also mean the other 31 teams aren’t serious about winning then? Fact is Sanchez has played an nfl game (or at least been on a team) more recently. Trust me, this organization is serious about winning.

Well Smith is making 71 million guaranteed while he is injured.  He doesn't deserve that type of money healthy!!!  We wouldn't have had to pay Kaep that much I believe.  They didn't make Smith play for the vet minimum so they damn sure should have offered that contract to Kaep instead of Smith from the start.  But that's hindsight now.

No, because all 31 teams aren't borderline average at the QB spot as we are.  Now the teams who have qbs that Kaep can clearly outplay....  Yes I would say they are not serious about winning either.

Kap was a bum the last season he saw the field. Not sure what makes people think he would have improved in his over two years out of football. The league has changed and his playing style isn’t as much of a threat as it use to be. He’s also injury prone.  Didn’t Elway try to bring him in and he didn’t want to play? Not to mention all the other stuff that we’re not allowed to talk about here in the Stadium.

So this guy was supposed to be a hot prospect out of college.  One would think you have to blame some of that on coaching.  And now we find ourselves with three people on our staff who coached him in his early years.  No wonder our offense sucks.

3 people? The only two I’ve heard about were the QB coach and the OC. Who’s the third guy that coached Sanchez?

Maybe Sanchez knows some inside info on Dak Prescott that they can use on Thursday since he played with him in Dallas a few seasons back?

Mark Sanchez, no hesitation.

 

Random thought.... imagine if this time last year if you had told the fanbase we would be going into a Thanksgiving Day game against Dallas with the division on the line, and our QBs would be Colt McCoy and Mark Sanchez.
