      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.

      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 head coach, 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

I wrote the name of every Redskin QB from the last 10 seasons onto individual pieces of paper, put them all in a brown paper sack, reached in and selected Heath Shuler.

I voted Tony Banks, but Jeff George is great as a write-in canidate. Marty was behind both, he was just clueless to QB talent & as a GM. Love that he is he got bounced in the first round of the playoffs and is 0-2. Though I would have liked him to beat the cowboys - how do you not run LT once in four plays inside the 7?!

(& yes I know Marty didn't pick Jeff George up, but he had a full off-season as GM and made him his season opening starter with no viable replacement, Norv didn't start him & Robinski got stuck with him)

Man, 4 pages and only one reference to Tim Hasslebak? Doesn't anyone remember the Dallas game where he had almost more completions to Cowboys then Skins? Wans't he something like 6-20 with 4 picks? That was BY FAR the worst QB in recent memory.

Brunnell is absolutely possitively the worst QB I have ever seen play in the NFL. Not only for the redskins but any team that ever existed.

MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL MARK BRUNELL

There is no other answer. I would gladly start Danny Weurffel over Mark Brunell right now.

Gotta be Shuler. You spend a first round pick on a guy who does nothing for your team. Only the Ryan Leaf incident for the Chargers makes takes the cake to this move.

u guys see the dallas game...????

Whats so funny about this is that my previous post in this thread was just about a minute before he made those two throws. Thats how bad he was playing up until that point and I still think he's the worst one I have ever seen play in my 30 some-odd years of watching the skins.

I remember the Schottenheimer era in D.C......and a former Skins draft pick named Todd Husak. This guy couldn't throw the ball to save his life. Pure embarassment at the QB level. This guy (with the exception of Heath Shuler of course) was the worst recent 'Skins QB. I remember Jeff Hostetler having better stats during his short stint with the 'Skins.

I don't know about recent history - and by the way there is no way Mark B is a worse QB than Tony Banks or Heath Shuler. However the worse QB I ever saw in a Redskins uniform with my own eyes was Cary Conklin - anybody remember him?

Because I'm from the UK I have only actually attended 3 Redskins games. The first Redskins game I got was a Monday night game at Miami back in '93 which was the first year after Gibbs retired.

Mark Rypien was injured and Conklin got the start. He was awful. The low point came on one play early second half when the 'Fins only rushed 4 guys and he had decent time but unable to find a receiver to throw in the general direction of he just flopped untouched to the ground. Even the Miami fans sat around me booed him.

We were down 2 touchdowns at the time and he was pulled for Rich Gannon on the next series who threw a TD but it was too little to late.

Compared to him Mark and Pat look like Johnny Unitas and Joe Montana rolled into one.

Patrick Ramsey is the modern day Heath Shuler. The guy that most Redskins fans love but never got the chance to be successful.

Heath Shuler wasn't that bad. I remember he brought us back against the Giants his rookie year in like his 2nd start (it was on Sunday Night Football).

Now Tony "Stone Hands" Banks on the other hand is a no name horrible QB with a desease called Fumblitis. He couldn't even keep the job in Baltimore and Trent Green had to save that offense from his incompetance. Banks is the worst.

Just think of where we'd be if we had only kept Trent Green. Ever since I saw him bring us back to win in that one preseason game, I said to my self, now THERE'S a quarterback!

Man I wish Trent Green was still a Redskin. (I've been a huge fan of his ever since that game.)

I'm getting tired of everyone bashing Brunell. He is not a bad QB, he just had a very bad year due to injury and horrible receivers. If you're just posing that dumb question because you want Ramsey back in, then follow him to whatever team he goes to next year. He is worse than Brunell. A QB should be able to learn from his mistakes which Ramsey has shown time and time again that he can't.

As far as my answer to the question, it has to be Jeff George. Million dollar arm, :2cents: head. Hmmmm, a lot like Ramsey.
