      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!

I like Fitzpatrick, but is he worth a potential top 5 pick? And we don’t have a 2nd. And why would they in the middle of a tank want old expensive TW? And I can’t imagine he’d go willingly. Just seems so much potential for bad.

Minkah is a beast no doubt and I like that he still has 2 more years on his rookie contract after this one (3 if you include the option) but I'm iffy on whether we should use what will end up being a top 10 pick for a safety. Given the depth of the tackle class, I'd try to save it to find a replacement for Trent. It's going to be hard to find a LT otherwise

If we trade a 1sr Rd pick for a DB. This team will forever be doomed. Would be another horrible move by this organization.

 

really?  Cause you know we've got fans complaining about our not getting a pick where we can get a shut down corner and that's what this guy seems to be he's got the three years plus his fifth year option as a former first rounder

Does he also play on the oline, because that is more important and we don't have a LT. Not to mention our RT has been playing like a bum. So you're right lets trade for a CB that won't fix 90% of this teams problems. You probably wanted Josh Norman and Collins as well. How has that worked out for us. That's right Norman sucks and we're 0-2 with Collins as a Skin. That 1st rd pick needs to be used on a LT next year period.

Minkah's not a shutdown corner.  He's a DB who can play every position, but most notably Slot, FS, and SS extremely well.  You want him reading the offense and being around the ball.  You don't want him on an island, that's not playing to his strengths.

 

To put it another well, Minkah is a better version of Jimmy Moreland.  Is it possible to have two of those guys on the field at the same time?  If it works...that'd be some serious playmaking.

One thing that for certain never count the Redskins out of a race for a bama guy.I know they missed on Mosley but the will attempt to land all top flight bama guys.I only hope they dont go the route of a third and a young player like The big Greek contact extension and all.

we can go for a free agent LT.  Or we can trade Trent for a first and use that one to pick an LT

What good LTs come out in free agency? Come on

 

We could've already traded Trent and haven't and Bruce says we won't.

So Josh Norman for Ramsey straight up isn’t likely?

I'm sure that every team in the league will be reaching out to the jags but agreeing to give up multiple draft picks is another story.
