      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!

Yes, that's definitely from one of the Breakin' movies. That's Turbo from the movie... the girl with the pink think on is also from Breakin'.

OK, things have been pushed in this thread in a few ways. First off, the next GIF that contains text that the profanity filter would normally catch will shut this thread down.

The next GIF with bouncing breasts, storm troopers humping robots, todlers bouncing moms boob, or any other sexual type of animations and such will shut this thread down.

This thread has some of the funniest stuff you could find, but in the last 20 pages alone, there's more then enough to get some folks in the dog house.

What is in the past is just that, but these type of pics and GIF's stops right now.

Wow, somehow, I just came across this thread. And likewise, I haven't gone over the 83 pages of pictures entirely yet. So I apologize in advance if any of the following are repeats:

YA, closing the thread would be a big leap. You say that some stuff posted hasn't been so good, yet nothing has been reported, has it. The staff has spent countless hours deleating stuff over time, yet people just don't get the hint and continue to post questionable stuff. I don't see any sense in being so nice about it any longer, and by the rules of this forum, sexually explicit or implicit stuff doesn't fly. Same goes for profanity in gif's that the filters cant catch because of being in an attachment. While the majority of the stuff in this thread is great stuff, and funny as all hell, the only way I see to get some people to catch on is not to go after the manifestation, but the host of the problem.

Maybe people will start to get on the few who are killing it for the rest. An internet blanket party so to speak............

I don't want to be a hard azz, and really don't want to shut down threads, but at this point I have no will to use my limited time going page by page through the threads that tend to have these problems. Now, you may think that this is the job of the staff, to go page by page through threads to look for problems. You would be a complete fool if you thought we have that ability. After dealing with a type of problem for a long time with limited results, it's well within the rights of the staff to change the way we deal with something.

Your old road is rapidly agin'.

Please get out of the new one

If you can't lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin'.

:cheers:
