      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!

Insomniac thread:Week:3 Welcomes the restless,die hard drunken fans!!!

Oh yes the Bears. We shall slay them and their young QB. Our D will maul them. Yes you heard it here first. It could also be that I might be a little drunk too. 

 

So let's get this party started early! What games you guys and gals will be watching tomorrow as you wait for Monday night?

 

I will be checking out the Raves and The Chiefs game. 

 

Enjoy! 

:cheers:

I just got offered free suite tickets to it last night that I had to TURN DOWN because of an event tonight we can't reschedule.  That's gonna be a fun one to watch, for sure. 

 

Feeling really meh though about this whole weekend of football in general. Usually doesn't happen until at least week 10+ but it's getting to me early this year. 

 

Still gonna watch Monday night, but I think I'm like @ConnSKINS26, I really think a win would only prolong the change needed, so getting our normal embarrassing beat down on national TV might be the best medicine for us.

 

Ugh, hail.

Yeah, also interested in the Ravens-Chiefs game, should be a good one, Mahomes has got such a smooth throwing action. Obviously gonna root for Miami (lol), the Lions and Bucs.

 

Will also watch Pittsburgh-San Francisco, are the Niners for real? They've got a good chance to get to 3-0 over the Big Ben-less Steelers, after going 4-12 last year.

 

Can't wait for Monday night even though the time difference is a real killer. Game starts at 1:15 am (Tuesday), so won't finish until gone 4:00 am. I usually can't sleep right after a game, so will get less than two hours. Workmates have been warned not to piss me off until my third cup of coffee, lol.

Wanna see how Jones does for NY.

 

Wanna see if the Cowboys are too full of themselves and overlook Miami.

 

Wanna see if the Raiders force Kirk to throw a few Hail Mary passes out the back of the end zone.

 

Wanna see if my picks for this week's football pool results in some free slot play at the casino lol...

I truly feel we can win this game. Trubisky has been that bad. We need to score the ball at least 3 times. Maybe some of the better players on the Bears D miss the plane or something

I picked us to win, but since the Giants now have a win, I feel the universal alignment is going to be off a bit sending us to the basement of the cosmos. Have to go back and change that. Damn you Bucs, you HAD 'em. 😠

After spending 14 hours finally got this client's network closet moved to another location. Lot's of wiring had to be moved and had to run new cables too. 
 

Whoever ran 3 blue network cables that are not coming to the wiring closet should be shot. Apparently they are going to a 100 MB switch somewhere and over 3 hours were spent looking for the damn thing. I am going to be highly pissed if this previous wiring asshole put the switch in the ceiling that is closed off! 😡

 

Still need to go back and finish some stuff though.

 

The Skins better not piss me off on Monday night as well!!!

Are we sure this is Week 3?  ES is emptier than FedEx Field right now, sheesh. The apathy is out of control right now, feels like a May in ES, not Week 3.  This place is a ghost town compared to what it should be.

I sincerely hope the Skins win tonight.  But, if they don't, I want to see some @#$% heads roll!

I am all in, looking forward to this game.  Something has to give.  They break the MNF record or their winning streak against the Bears ends.  I think they win a close one.  If they don't I think the wheels come off leading to the NY Giants game.

Well if I had to bet which streak came to and end tonight I know where I'd put my money.

I used to have major anticipation for games and be excited for them.  It’s been a while.

 

You don't need an excuse to drink...lol

 

You, however, have to drink more during the Skins games. The game just tastes better that way. :headbang::pint::cheers:

I keep thinking there is no way this defense continues to play the way it has, I don't care who the coordinator is...and going up against the Bears' offense might allow for a breather.

I drink. A lot. Cause Skins.

 

I still get just as excited as ever. But I’ve learned over the years what’s coming so doesn’t take me as long to get over it.
