      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!

Worst Redskin qb in Recent History

Recommended Posts

Come on folks, the answer is simple.

BILLY KILMER.

He was horrible. We could have won 2 Super Bowls with Sonny at the helm. A lot of you guys are too young to remember the wounded ducks he threw. Charlie Taylor, Frank Grant, Roy Jefferson and Jerry Smith made this guy look so good it was pathetic. Although as the saying went, he had the easiest ball to catch in the NFL, it all depended on which end you caught.

Brunnell

he should also be arrested for grand theft

I was going to say Shuler until I heard that he is running for congress so we can poke fun at him at Nationals and skins game soon.

I wanna know how Tony Banks got votes he was not that bad. Specially after sum of the QB's we have had recently.

I would have to go with Brunell though!

Although I did like him as a backup and preseason world beater, Tim Hasselbeck probably had one of the worst single game qb performances in recent memory.

Comp/Att 6-26

Perct. 23.1

Jeff George gets my vote. He's been a problem with every team he's been on. Sports talk 980 had a great promotion after the Skins finally ran him out of town. They gave away something stupid prize to commemorate him being cut that was worth like 20 bucks saying "The prize isn't worth much, but neither was Jeff George"

I'm surprised that Gus "I like to celebrate by hitting my head into a concrete wall" Frerotte hasn't gotten more votes. He's a close second for me.

That opener agains SD a few years back was the worst I have ever seen.

Worse than Tim Hasselbeck against Dallas two years ago?

Frerotte went to the Pro Bowl in 97. I can't see him anywhere near the worst.

Jeff George was certainly the worst person at QB, but his stellar performance against the Rams keeps him from coming in dead last. For price paid/degree of suckage, noone compares to the $$$ & high pick we gave up for the useless Shuler. Then again, watching Brunell last season was as painful as watching any Skins QB I can ever remember.

Brunell's old, Banks fumbles too much, Shuler was an absolute bust and Wuerful had no business being in the NFL. So I'd have to go with the absolute bust.

Worst? Here's 2. 1 coach, ( which still makes him a Redskin), and 1 player. Jimmy Raye and Tony Banks. :) It's a combo deal. :)

Heath Shuler, hands down. This shouldn't even be a contest & by the results of the poll, Shuler is in the lead with almost 100 more votes than Brunell. He isn't even playing anymore, he was that bad. Yes, Brunell is by & large the worst we have RIGHT NOW, but to say he's the worst we have had in recent history is to forget Heath Shuler's pathetic play. I mean, he was beaten out for a starting job almost right out of TC by a guy making league minimum in Gus Frerotte, for cryin' out loud. :doh: What a bust he was.
