      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!

Just been reading in the draft thread that Gruden noted safety as a major issue, and the desire to get a bigger WR into the fold. Landon Collins, Devin Funchess solves that and frees up the draft in those positions. So does the excellent blocking TE/FB Luke Stocker. 

 

Not a a big fan of the FA class on offer. Those would be the players I'd consider if indeed they all hit FA.

He is 6-9 280 with a light lower body. This guy is a strict 4-3 guy

He played in a hybrid 4-3 defense at Baylor which was infused with 3-4 and wide-9.... and excelled...

Saints and Raiders in mix for Antonio Brown...

 

Saints would absolutely unstoppable...

 

Raiders stacked with draft ammo for that move. I could also see the Raiders going for Preston Smith.

I dont get the love for Antonio Brown.   He is awesome with Ben.  Look at his stats without Ben.  I have long believed that the Ben/ Antonio pair may be one of if not the best combo in NFL history but it is them together.  Brown will not be a star in his next uniform.   Good but no longer elite

The FO is saying we aren't cutting or restructuring anyone just yet. Scherff is the priority. IF we are bringing in a blue chipper, we'll sort the cap space out.

 

My bet, we extend Scherff, Preston Smith gone, Landon Collins signs if he hits FA, we'll restructure a couple of deals. Doesn't seem like major roster moves coming or a major outlay in FA at QB.

Is the reason that you say Landon Collins will be a Washington Redskin because he is a Redskins fan and idolised Sean Taylor?.

Gruden has basically said we'll bring in a couple of quality FA. Also, safety is a major issue, also per Gruden. Collins does have some past history in referencing the Redskins, but I dare say money talks. Plus he is looking at what, 10-12mil p/y deal.

 

There really aren't too many FA out there that us, the fanbase, will realistically get excited about. Collins is one I believe, on majority that will be a massively popular move. 

 

So, it's a need, is a move the fanbase will back, and there seems like a mutual interest, or more so a past interest from the player. 

 

Bruce Allen also stated that we will not mess around with out current roster cap situation just for the sake of it. We will however do what is necessary in the event we are able to target and secure a blue chip acquisition.

 

It's still an unknown though...and the Giants might tag him... :bye:

Mike Wallace 2.0, he was setting the league on fire in Pittsburgh and after he left he did nothing.

Bruce Allen is our GM and the Skins have a ton of money tied up in a QB that might not ever play again. In other words I don't expect much when it comes to free agency.
