      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!

Seriously,

What do you think is happening?

Everyone really pissed off about yesterday and vowing to take it out on the Bears?:mad:

Or, just farting yesterday off and heading out to deposit their checks for a little xmas shopping?;)

I know what my guess is.:gus:

Helton is doing his best Shar Pordanish impression by blaming everybody but himself in his head.

Mike Stock is watching old teams of the Special Olympics for idea's on how to get his guys to play better.

Ramsey is telling himself that he could of won yesterday

Bruce is indeed getting more coins printed.

Dan Snyder is sniffing ether under his desk and starting to believe he's never lost to Dallas.

And Brucey would proceed to march his overpaid ass up to Danny's office to whine. :cry:

And it would be the last day he ever suited up for the Skins. That, or I would be fired and on the way out, I would give danny the whistle. Which is probably what he really wants anyway.

well isn't this what everyone wanted? to get good draft picks? people seemed alitte miffed last week when we won...

WHAT???? Losnig to Dallas at home like that doesn't count when talking about draft picks. If it was a tough loss to the Rams or some ****, then it would be okay, because we may get a better pick. But a shut-out, home loss to the most hated team in the NFL isn't anything to be happy about. F the draft position...we the **** kicked out of us by the damn Cowboys!!

They are packing their belongings going home for the offseason, whats the point on hanging around and showing up for the next 2 games. It is not like they are going to play for pride or anything as unimportant like that. This bunch of losers are just playing out the season, they lose the next 2 games they don't give a rats a$$ they are getting paid and home for the Holidays. Merry Christmas

The Christmas spirit is in full-swing at fedex field:

Lavar's Xmas shopping will be in the free agent market, where he will find a new team that will bring he and his family (?) some happiness.

Then..."Tiny Tim" Hasselbeck stands up on his crutches and says, "God bless us, everyone." He then goes on to buy his leading reciever from yesterday's game a gift. The card reads- 'Dear Mr. Terence Newmann- Thanks for catching all of my passes!'

Ramsey has been shopping round the clock for a nice boot to fit over his newly-repaired foot. "Something in muave would be nice," he says to himself. "Hmmm...," he thinks. "Then I would need a muave armsling, a muave finger splint, a muave kneee brace, and an overall muave bodycast."

Darrell Russell is busy in the black Market. He and his new buddy, Byron Chamberlain, have started a holiday business to sell ephedra online. (in case you're interested, it's called overweight_hasbeens.com). They are making good profits so far!

And Snyder...well...he was visted by three ghosts...the first of which, the ghost of Xmas past, was a visit from JKC. He revealed how it was to win superbowls to Snyder. It was an amazing trip that brought Snyder down memory lane.

He has yet to be visited by other ghosts.
