      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!

If the Skins want Ramsey, I’d see if they want Trent, Josh and Kerrigan..

 

I was literally just about to post this given we are reportedly signing Spence today at OLB :ols:

(above is a joke.)

 

 

Actually, remove Kerrigan and I won't see this as a joke anymore. 🙂

There no way the Jags take a 32 year old tackle and a corner that stinks for a young, uber talented DB. 

 

I’ve wanted to package all three to get the salary off the books and get something for them.

Huge huge huge Noah Spence fan... I would have taken him in the first though it may have been a mistake in hindsight. He's better suited at OLB rather than at DE like Tampa has used him

 

http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/noah-spence?id=2555312

 

It's an interesting signing. He did have a checkered college career (kicked out of Ohio State). He did have 5.5 sacks his rookie year then injured his sophomore season. Looks like when they went to a 4-3 he didn't fit anymore.

The only way I'd make that trade is if they sent us Ramsey and he has to be riding a unicorn.

When did Trent turn 32? 

 

You can always see how a fan fan feels about a player when an extra year is put on player to decrease perceived value. 

 

Joking, but it’s funny, because it happens so often.

My bad, he’s 31.  If a team traded for Trent, rhey’d Get part of his 31 year old season and all of his 32 year old season, and more if they extend him.

Cowboys fans seem to say he a) sucks and b) has a terrible attitude.  So I'm in the "Say No to Taco" camp.

 

Pass. Pass. Pass. 

 

Lazy, me first, whiner, not over talented, slow.

 

We are celebrating cutting a first round pick this fast. All you need to know lol

 In high school, we would go to the drive-through at Taco Bell  and order something like 30 or 40 soft tacos at a time. They cost $.69. 

 

Oh, those were the days.

I could absolutely see us throw the house into getting a new QB and not a FS like Fitz and then wondering why WRs still get behind us.

To be fair, QBs have been going down a lot this season and we have only 2 healthy QBs on the team. I think it's fair to get a look at QBs who we might need in an emergency.

I wouldn’t mind the skins getting Taco.  Pay him the minimum and let Dallas pay the rest of his guaranteed money.  Maybe a different d-line coach could help him out.  We need all the help we could get out of that d-line to create pressure.  But then again, we have Manusky!  😞

I thought I read that Ramsey was also a headcase and distraction. He makes Antonio Brown look normal. Those guys come at a discounted rate

Read below:

I don't think Ramsey and Manusky would be a good fit. Until " Mansuky" goes at least.

I would love Taco on this team. He was stuck behind a lot of good talent in Dallas and dude is only in his third year. We could use the help at de.

AB released by the Pats ... I’m in the F*** it it would be a laugh camp

Dude, I was thinking the EXACT same thing. 

 

We're not winning this year, let's just go COMPLETELY off the rails, sit back, pop some popcorn and just watch the fireworks. Trade for Ramsey too.

If it was just about anything but domestic violence I’d be there with you. 

 

But given the circumstances, I think discretion is the better part of valor here.
