      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

      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

      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!

NFL STATEMENT ON THE STATUS OF ANTONIO BROWN

NFL STATEMENT ON THE STATUS OF ANTONIO BROWN

 

In response to questions about the status of Antonio Brown, the NFL released the following statement:

 

"Antonio Brown was released today by the New England Patriots and is currently an unrestricted free agent.  Our office is presently investigating multiple allegations, some of which are the subject of pending litigation.  We have as yet made no findings regarding these issues.  The investigation is ongoing and will be pursued vigorously and expeditiously. 

 

"As long as Mr. Brown is a free agent, placement on the Commissioner's exempt list is not appropriate.  If he is signed by a club, such placement may become appropriate at any time depending on the status of the investigation.  Upon the conclusion of the investigation, he may also be subject to discipline if the investigation finds that he has violated the law or league policies."

If he gets claimed, what does the new team need to pay him?

 

He does not have to go through waivers. He has too many years in the league. He is an "unrestricted free agent" meaning he is a free to sign with any team and for what ever salary the two agree on.

I think he may be done - I predict the NFL no longer wants Antonio Brown.  The NFL meeting his accuser for 10 hours, and then Kraft wanting him out, tells me all I need to know to predict his future.

 

Of course, Kraft is a bit of a pron star and is likely trying to clean up his image.

HAHA Brown is now pretending that he doesn't want to play for the NFL.

 

I suspect Drew told him no one wanted him. My prediction is taking shape.

If you're Super Agent Drew Rosenhaus, at what point do you just go to AB and go... "Hey, lemme see your phone real quick..." and just change all his social media passwords so he can't continue to post dumb **** left and right?  Being an agent is about negotiating good contracts and deals for your client but it's also gotta be about saving some of these guys from themselves.  Good grief.
