      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!

Well been on the top of my list since Butler was drafted.  Glad we got him and definitely a steal.

NFL draft profile: Kelvin Harmon

Kelvin Harmon is a wide receiver out of NC State who has great size and a unique ability to make contested catches.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Harmon has outstanding size, and he's a long strider with adequate top-end speed for his frame. He tracks the ball well, and he does a good job of adjusting to back-shoulder throws. He makes contested catches. He's a big target with a real feel for coverage, and he can find pockets in zone looks

Harmon is still there? Wonder what his story is, many had him as a 2d rounder.

 

His speed is supposed to be an issue.  I'm seeing 4.6 as his combine 40.

I hate this pick!   Should have traded the pick for a number 1 in next year's draft!

Part of me would rather have taken a flyer on a freak of nature like Emanuel Hall instead of Harmon though. Harmon had some good tape but his measurables at the combine were pretty bad. However, he seems like more of a likely hit than Hall.

So, it looks like the only unaddressed hole will be free safety. Pretty good job of collecting talent. Got a top edge rusher, qb, super fast wide receiver, a couple of offensive line man, and a possible replacement for Chris Thompson down the line. Now, we just need to convince Gettleman to trade his 2020 second rounder for our pair of seventh rounders...

Kelvin Harmon, wow, I've been carping about getting him all day.  😀😀   They took 3 guys this draft who are my guys so speak (McLaurin, Love, Harmon) -- players I've touted a lot but Bryce Love for me I did it last year not this season because I figured he's out of the picture because of the injury.  This is my favorite draft of theirs maybe of all time for selfish egotistical reasons.  If they take players i like they must be good?  :ols:

 

Harmon was one of the last guys I touted where I added these clips among other things on the draft thread this week.  He's really physical, even though he isn't fast he still separates well.  some draft geeks say he struggles to separate but I disagree.    He's a good blocker.   He's a real fun watch.   He plays ferociously -- YAC guy.  Even though he isn't fast, somehow he was a deep threat at times.   

 

One of my favorite receivers in the 2nd tier range -- great value in the 6th.  Probably my fav 6th pick they've ever had.   Now that I laid it on thick probably jinxed the dude though.

Well nothing is stopping us from taking Hall if he is still there  in the 7th.

 

Yes he is now at the top of my board even though we already took two WRs.

 

My 7th round wish list.

Hall WR,

Benzschawel G

Kris Boyd CB

Nuata TE

Pretty hard to outdo Rock Cartwright. 

 

Actually, Rock was quite a good contributor for a sixth rounder.

In the sixth round the expectations are lower - if Harmon is a productive move-the-chains type for the Skins then the pick will go down as one of the better ones in this draft.

Jay said he's following Kyle Smith's board.  Promote the dude!  Seriously, we never know right now how these guys pan out but just by coincidence Kyle is picking some plays i love.  Of all the players dropping today, Harmon's drop to me was the most mystifying.  Love that pick.

I think it's more nefarious than that. I think SIP is buttering the toast and angling to be hired as a team scout. Look out Bruce! SIP is after your job!!!

I guess this is the one that will disagree with the rest. I think Hall is a far superior player. Harmon is SLOW and he struggles to get separation. Those two traits are a death nail for an NFL WR. He won on physicality in college. He wont be able to do that in the NFL.  I wonder if they dont try to pull a Niles Paul with him and bulk him up to move him to TE? I mean it is a 6th rounder so no big deal. But there was a much better player at the position available IMO.
