      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!

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.

Couldn't agree more myself. Shuler was so bad he brought me to tears. Brunell and Wuerful weren't much better, but then again, if you expected them to lead us to the playoffs, well....:laugh:

Let's see just the wins, and maybe add Brunell and Ramsey as well, just to see where they fall as far as winning percentage.

Thanks, and just as I thought. Ramsey no more than a few points above the rest, and if I did the math, his INT looks to be higher than most. I'll wait to vote on this poll until the end of this season.

:doh:

Okay. Looking at the Int's vs attempts, I got this. See if I did this right I'm sure.

D.W. 1 int for every 16 attempts. ( Danny, unfortunately, had a gunslinger mentality without the arm to back it up).

J.G. 1 int for every 35 attempts, ( He and mark obviously have just a few more attempts. That whole career thing).

H.S. 1 int for every 17 attempts.

M.B. 1 int for every 42 attempts.

P.R. 1 int for every 30 attempts.

For T.D.'s

D.W. 1/29

J.G. 1/26

H.S. 1/39

M.B. 1/26

P.R. 1/25

I hope no one out there have depression issues cause this question surely will not cheer them up; afterall, there have been so many horrible QB's. George and Brunnell were pathetic and Schuler sure gave them a run for their money. I have to think of it in terms if I had money on the opposing team against the point spread and then it would come down to George or Schuler.

I originally went with Shuler. But, thinking back a bit, and taking some circumstances into consideration, I want to change my vote to George.

Shuler - first, he alienated himself with the fans by holding out. Then he got thrown into games WAY before he should have. He never got caught up from the 2 weeks missed at training camp.

George - He always thought he knew better than the coach. Caught numerous times arguing with coaches on the sideline. Changed the play in the huddle; did not call the play that the coach sent in (and to think, as a kid, we all laughed at Dallas for not letting old whatisname call his own plays). Marty S., who stated that he could win so many games with ANY QB, cut him after 2 games. Two games, I might add, in which we got TOTALLY blown out. One on Monday night football (that game was so painful, I could hardly watch it).

So, for worst QB in recent History, I vote for Jeffy George.

I'm going with Jeff George, only because I'm still bitter with Snyder keeping him over Brad Johnson (I know it was more complicated than that, but still...)

For me, Tony Banks was the worse by far. No other QB we have had comes close to his inability to execute a play. IMHO.

Schuler by far. Wuerfel was already known as a terrible QB. I didnt like him at Florida.

Brunell definitely is not the worst. But I wish he would go ahead and retire. B/C I want to remember him for how good he was. Not how terrible he is now.

How can anyone say any name besides Mark Brunell?

We might've witnessed the worst half season stretch by any QB EVER with him last season.

Yeah, Tony Banks was horrible.

How about Head Coach Bobby Bethered. He "tried" to coach right after Gibbs. Worst Skins record in history.

IF YOU THINK BANK THEN YOUR CRAZY, TONY BANKS WAS IN AVERAGE QB BUT HE HAD THE BEST PLAY ACTION FAKE IV SEEN THEN ANY OTHER QB ON THIS LIST. SO THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR SAYING ABOUT HIM. I LIKED BANKS WHEN WE HAD HIM HE WAS IN ARIGHT QB.

Right. Playaction move. The definitive characteristic of a at least an average QB. How good he can fake a handoff. Of course, Banks did an average job of faking being an NFL QB. He had average if not worse accuracy, he tended towards eyeing one receiver, ( he didn't check down), and had happy feet. Among other things. Yeah. Real crazy, ( notice the lack of caps? Pretty cool feature on keyboards).

Definitely Brunells fault that H. Shuler was so bad. Its also Brunells fault that Gus Forgot that the wall was solid.:gus:

Danny Wuerfell just flat out sucked and contirbuted nothing to our team.

Although Jeff George was trash in 2001, he led us to a couple of wins in 2000. Remember that awesome game he had against the Rams in St. Louis?

Tony Banks didn't do much but at least he could run. Plus he was in a run first offense so he didn't have to throw. Wuerfell was garbage in a throw first offense.

Heath Shuler wasn't groomed properly, well to be honest I never really saw him play, so I excluded him.

Mark Brunell had a bad year but he's been a good QB in his career. I think he may end up surprising some people if he gets a chance to play this year. Lets hope it doesn't come down to that though!

for real brunell is the worst player to ever be a redskin, much less a quarterback. and because of his name hes probably scarred ramsey's confidence by playing such a rotten quarterback before him.
