      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!

Prehistoric development with new speculation: Trent Williams wants to be traded/released

We drafted him to play tackle & had to move him off of rt in about 3 days.

 

I thought the reason was that everything seemed to click with Moses at RT, so moving Sherff to RG seemed the logical way to go. And it has turned out more than alright in my opinion.

Moses got moved in the day J.J. Watt was coming to town for our week of practices. Long got moved out & it was soon clear that Morgan had developed significantly & was a far better tackle than Scherff & it was equally clear that Scherff was a far better guard than Long. We intended to draft our RT at 5, but Kerrigan made a joke of him & we didn’t want him taking on J.J. Watt ...enough had been seen to know he couldn’t handle RT. He took all of his snaps at RT initially, it was brutal.

I just dont get why this is so difficult for so many fans to get.  Trent isnt sitting out because he wants a few million more, but that seems to be the nice little punching bag people are making up to for some reason make an inept front office and management look better.

Trent is sitting out because for years already hes probably been thinking about life after football, and by all appearances when he had what could have been a life threatening medical condition, Redskins training staff lied to him about it, and put his life at risk for the sake of a better season for Jay and Bruces jobs.  To find out how casually they treated his life probably set him off.  His wife was probably and still is livid about it, as is the rest of his family, as would be ANY of you that had an employer do such a thing. It scared him, it scared them, and showed him just how little the organization cared about him.  Its insane the number of people on here that are going "hes so selfish", but then again, its been a delusional bunch for some time now...

@Peregrine Have you seen something more concrete about this issue than the rest of us? I am not doubting that there may be a fair amount of Merit to your statement, but mostly all I have read is conjecture based off of one tweet. Could you provide a link to that statement for release? I think it would help all of us have a little firmer grasp of the issue.

The original report by Jason La Canfora. Outside of that many have completely ignored that info and just assumed it's about the money. 

 

There is a very interesting situation playing out among posters here. So many are accusing Trent of being money hungry without any info. When someone says it's about medical concerns people ask for 100% certain evidence. Shouldn't we be holding the 'Trent is money hungry' group to the same standard? 


As it stands the only person that seems to know everything is Bruce Allen, who has only chosen to let us know that he knows. I guess if you trust Bruce to be a straight up guy who typically solves these problems then everything will be okay...

You start off your post as if things are so obvious only a moron would not understand and then you went full QAnon on us. 

 

Your theory could be right but saying that the team lied to the player just so he would stay on the field is quite an accusation without any facts to back it up.

 

If that did happen he will most certainly never play here again and I would expect to see a grievance filed and we will probably lose a draft pick or suffer some sort of consequences as a team.  You could probably even make an argument for criminal charges to be filed against the team for the cover-up. 

 

That would be a scandal of epic proportions, maybe we should wait for some facts before we get too crazy.

True.

 

Not sure that **** should necessarily stick forever though. To discount Scherff having any kind of future at tackle could be harsh based on his initial reps in the pro game.

Not sure why people are advocating moving Scherff to T. He is one of the best Gs in football. Could he play tackle now? Maybe. But not as well as G and that's where is comfortable now. If it's because people think it's easier to find a G than T, well maybe for most teams. But we have not had an even average LG for quite a few years. Unless one of the guys drafted turn out to be starters, or Ereck Flowers turns into one, they wil lstill be looknig for a LG. 

 

And it;'s not as easy as people think for a player to change positions. Could he do it? Possibly. Would he be good? Possibly. Would he as good a T as he is G? Very unlikely. So you move him over and you very likely weaken both positions. Not a good move at all.

Imo, he was always an atrocious OT prospect, what Barnett did to him in the bowl game crossed the line. There was no reason to treat a fellow human that way.

I know right? it's like people trying to plan things around the weather on a future date.

 

Why go off these half-arse 'projections' when you can just wait until the day and look outside?

 

Seriously though, this is a message board. Almost all topics are about what could happen, not what has happened. We talk about projected stats, who will be drafted, who will be signed/resigned, starting lineups, roster compensation, etc... It would be a pretty dull place if threads only posted what happened with no opinion attached to it. 

 

What would a fact based thread look like? 

 

Subject: 1 + 1 = 2

 

How would someone even reply to that?

We can only report facts that are out there.

You want more facts on TW ? He took a massive dump the other day, that was in proportion to his 300+ pound size.

That's all we got.

Haven't you heard? The Houston Texans haven't said anything, so they're clearly bidding on Trent Williams even though he isn't reported to be on the trading block. I hear the Texans are willing to give up 3 2nd round picks that they haven't offered in the trade deal that hasn't been discussed for the player who isn't being traded.

Exactly, the silence is golden from the Texans, and speaks volumes.

Absolutely no statements of denial about their desire and plan to trade for him. Lack of denial shouts interest in the deal, clearly.

☝️Agree.  It's unbelievable.  But, I think Peregrine's words might begin to support an explanation as to why. 👇

(sorry to omit the rest of your post, Peregrine.  But, those few words are the best and briefest assessment of the fan-base on here that I've ever seen...hence why I haven't posted in years.)

Houston has made several offers to Washington over the last couple years. It never fails that forum goers with sensitive egos mock those who dare to care and share information they get from people connected to these teams... even more connected than your beloved beat reporters. Oh silly ESers & their sauce-envy.

 

Poor Nicky, I’ll get you a t-shirt.

There are a few facts that matter.

1.  Bruce Allen knew about TW grievance long before the media got hold of it.

2.  Bruce Allen hired a Consulting Firm to evaluate deficiencies in the Medical/Training Program.

3.  TW has verified that he's not happy with Redskins Medical.  (Moses relayed the message TW told to teammates.)

 

Likelihood that TW team is holding out for concessions to the situation.  What are they?  Who knows.  It's speculation.  I think those are the only facts thus far.

That would be pretty fitting. "I waited over the last couple years for a trade with Houston but all I got was this lousy t-shirt".

If Washington was bright enough to trade Trent a year ago, as they should have, I’d get you a better shirt, but as is, I’ll have that one made up for you.
