      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!

AJ Green is going to be 31 in July.  I wouldn't want him.  We can do better in the draft.  He also is banged up.  JMO. :)

Lol, we can do better in the draft lol...good one haha

Green is on the wrong side of 30 and his production the last two years is low. I feel a third is all he is worth.AB was the most productive WR in the league over the last several years with no sign of slowing down. His value cannot be higher than Brown's.

Post youtube highlights when throwing out a prospect...pretty easy and we can all take a look.  Cheers!

 

 

What separates him from guys like Edelman and Welker is he runs a 4.3. That means he can absolutely play on the outside as a DeSean Jackson type. I really want this guy in round 2

6/11ths of next year’s starting defense likely to be Bama guys (7/11ths if SDH starts and HCD returns), and they tried to make it more by pursuing Moseley.

 

When you consider they only started drafting Alabama guys 2 drafts ago, that’s a lot of personnel from one school. Mostly good players, so not too many gripes about it, but it doesn’t take the place of actually being able to identify and develop talent. 

 

 

We just have to hope Clemson doesn't somehow show up on our schedule...

I would never play a reciever on the outside who is only 5' 9"

AJ Green is a hall of game talent, still has some go in his game. If value was right and contract made sense, sure. 

 

With that said, hard to justify such a move with QB situation as is. With Alex, I’m all in.

I agree totally.  Plus he's going to be an unrestricted free agent next year.  It would be a waste of money and time to bring him in for a one year rental.

Lol..right!!..he probably gonna call it a career

I loved him as a redskin.  Definitely need a youngster with that same crash test dummy mentality! 

49'ers got punked on that deal.  He only played 8 games the last two years.

Probably the best No Signings of the Skins were not giving DeSean and Pierre those big contracts.  We still haven't been able to find anyone like DJ who can take the top off the field.  That type outside WR is a game changer for sure.

Can't post but a news outlet in Chicago say that HHCD met them earlier today.  No mention of him staying overnight so it might mean good news for us Skin fans.  We shall see.

What is the prevailing opinion on Josh Doctson on the board? If I remember correctly he had a stretch of 4-6 games of like 5 catches 45-65 yards. The impact in the red zone hasent been as advertised. Is the general opinion that he will be gone next year or are a few of us still hoping he can step up to be a decent number two option? If so then we need an explosive weapon opposite him. Between Sims and Quinn should be enough of a tandem for number 4 duties. My assumption is draft pick/doctson/Richardson majority of targets. The flex spot is TE and although Reed provides receiving production he kills us in the run game and is always a health concern. I suggest we hit both positions early.

 

We can fill the OG position via FA, cuts and within our top four selections. I think Qb becomes the wild card.  If I am to believe Jay and Bruce need to win now to save their jobs. Then the plan is to build the best team possible around Keenum..the experienced Qb. This approach would allow us to build a team of Edge/TE/WR/OG with our first four picks.(in whatever the best order) If we stink next year .. that's fine we have a solid young team and can go get our franchise QB in next year's draft. If Keenum gets hot again for a season with the improved team then great a winning season and something to build on.

Next year is his last year with this team. We are not picking up his fifth year option and I'm sure he's going to want to go to another team where he is in a better situation. I'd trade him if we can find someone to fill his starter spot

I am meh on the AP signing... 2 years/raise for a 33 year old back....   I would rather see what Guice Marshall Bibbs and Perine can do.  Follow the obvious trend of the rest of the league and roll with kids. Instead, we'll risk our young backs to the PS.

 

IIRC he was upset that he lost the starting job to Ingram and Kamara. I hope he is OK with a backup role.

 

What young backs are those, Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall?  Yeah, they can go on the PS or off the roster, who cares.

Who at the WR position via trade would be considered a big splash? AJ Green?

Hope not..I mean I guess for the right price..
