      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.

      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!

That very well might have been the most impressive drive of the entire season and I probably can't name 50% of the players on the field executing it.

I bet Titans fans are pretty disappointed right now. Giving up a TD to some guy named Josh Johnson after having our offense at our own 3 with 2nd and 27.

Let him compete. Draft our future in 2020.

Yup, with what he's showing so far, he absolutely deserves that.

 

If the guy can takes us to the playoffs and wins a game, he should write a book and seel it to Disney/Hollywood.

THEY WERE 2nd and 27 ON THEIR OWN 1 YARD LINE

I wonder what the record for most yards traveled in one drive is, when factoring in yards lost. Got to be a lot traveled there.

Josh Johnson the best QB on our roster?

Well, Sanchez is on the roster, so, I would say Johnson is the only QB on the roster and McCoy is out

Seeing that look on Peterson's face was impressive. He's looking like he wants to kill somebody.

 

I don't know if they'll be able to hold this fire until the end of the game, but that is good to see them play with some fire.

Especially with the refs not doing us any favors so far.

What a great drive. I love Josh Johnson. Hope he sticks on the roster next year if we have a spot. Not gonna win you a superbowl but the dude has serious heart and desire. Deserves to back up Colt at the least next season presuming Alex aint good to go. If Alex is good to go theb id consider letting Colt walk. I really like McCoy but hes expensive for a backup and for my money i think Johnson is at least comparable, and would almost certainly sign for vet min. Havent looked into all the cap implications but i presume we'd save a couple of mill.

YES YES YES YES YES..  Peterson in a single back with Johnson under center the majority of that drive... @skinny21, THIS is what i was talking about.  SWING pass to Floyd and BOOM, paydirt.   REALLY good drive as far as playcalling, lets keep it up!
