      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!

Bold Prediction:

"Landon Collins is a box safety" is going to be this year's "Josh Norman is a system corner" when the national media wants to rip on the Skins

Highly doubt it, think that was just speculation before we got Collins. I don’t want Bell personally I’m ready to see Guice shine. 

Guice would still shine with bell here. Bell would be the best receiver on our team as it stands now and as far as Guice he is coming off knee surgery.

Landon Collins is my favorite free agent signing since Santana Moss.. probably my favorite of all time. I am extremely happy Landon Collins is a Washington Redskin.

Our Practice Squad guys have their best shot this year to make active roster and get targets. Here’s hoping they can and do. 

 

I get excited over our young WRs every year and they never do squat!   They get injured, or just can't seem to get on the field. When they do, its minimal snaps and we never get a game changing play from them.  We hang our hat on Josh's 6 TDs 2 years ago, and Crowder's fine season, now 3 years ago.  Sprinkle in a little Ryan Grant and we have bleh.

 

Tre' Quinn should take over for Crowder.  Mo Harris always impresses me when we feature him, and then he is invisible for months at a time.  Getting the ball to a WR always seems so.... forced.   Depending on what happens in FA I am thinking we take a WR at 15 who ends up needing a few years to learn how to run routes with extreme precision, block, the playbook, how to stay healthy... all those hurdles that lets face it, are very difficult to overcome.

Sign Adrian Amos! That's immediately the best tandem safety unit in the NFL

Get Amos and Thomas Davis for the price of Mosley.

Updated Needs:

 

Slot receiver - Though I think Quinn will win that when all is said and done

Edge Rusher - Should just re-sign Preston Smith if we can afford. He's the best one still on the market besides Justin Houston. Draft possible

Guard - Can't go the 3rd year + in a row with crap at LG... or draft Chris Lindstrom

FS - Sign Adrian Amos! or Re-sign Haha Clinton-Dix if it must be an Alabama player

ILB - to pair with Ferrari Foster. Maybe keep Mason Foster around or draft.

Outside WR - to pair with Doctson - Draft is heavy with WR talent.

 

missing anything?

Some really good LGs still on the market. Though they may address that position in the draft.

No and I love the enthusiasm to keep Preston Smith.. I feel I'm the only one on board for that.

Reading some of the comments about Landon being worthless and sucking are incredible. This fanbase needs an enema.

I think if we are trying to pair someone with Doctson, that essentially means we need two outside WRs. 

 

Kelvin Benjamin anyone?

 

6'5, 243 - 2,000 yards in his first two seasons... former first rounder.

Here is an article of how Collins' contract works out (courtesy of Wildbunny's breaking news forum):

 

https://www.nbcsports.com/washington/redskins/if-you-liked-landon-collins-signing-youre-going-love-landon-collins-contract

 

Not too bad a cap hit this year.

Of course not. This is how teams with no foresight operate. A team that's really not among the top 10 of it's own conference constructing a deal that's designed to optimize year one at the expense of everything else.

 

When a GMs only real goal is a #6 seed and he doesn't care about the future at all, something like this looks like brilliant cap management.

Tick, tock....I wonder if teams have offered Bell contracts lower than he expected.  You'd think he'd be signed by now...
