Last week, amid the Skins’ latest attempt to prove that they are the most grotesque and embarrassing franchise in sports, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported that quarterback Kirk Cousins had asked team owner Dan Snyder to trade him. Cousins then went on Adam Schefter’s podcast to set the record straight, only he didn’t…
The Washington football team is perhaps the most dysfunctional in the NFL, and this week the Skins have given D.C. football kremlinologists plenty to chew on.
Former Washington tight end Chris Cooley, currently A Guy Who Says A Lot Of Shit On The Radio, spent some time on his ESPN show today floating an interesting theory about why Washington’s defensive backs struggled this season:
I think it’s fair to say that the guy who came out of the Great Football Beef of 2015 looking the most like a hothead was Odell Beckham Jr. But yesterday’s game between Washington and Dallas, which included Norman getting into it with Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant during and after the game, was a good reminder that…
A fan who said he attended Sunday’s Cowboys game against Washington sent a video of a brawl in the parking lot.
Washington pulled off a rare feat with yesterday’s loss to the Cowboys, producing not just one anxiety-inducing postgame story for its fans to spend the week panicking over, but a whole host of headlines to make everyone in D.C. glum and the rest of us joyful.
A football move, what is it? I have no idea, but it is a term that figures into a lot of very confusing calls during NFL games.
Of course Kirk Cousins likes Creed:
The Washington Post spent the last few months surveying a random selection of 504 self-identified Native Americans, 36 percent of whom claimed a tribal affiliation, about the Washington football team calling itself the “Redskins.” Of those surveyed, the vast majority told the Post that the name does not offend them.
Washington’s season-ending loss on Sunday also brought an official end to the Robert Griffin III era. Griffin, who didn’t play a down all season and will surely be cut this offseason, left the team as only he could: with a corny note.
Former NFL running back Clinton Portis has owed a lot of people a lot of money for some time now, and according to bankruptcy filings, the exact amount that he owes to various creditors is $4,857,659.50.
On Sunday, some social media manager got his or her Twitter accounts mixed up and made it abundantly clear that the @redskinsfacts account, allegedly run by a “growing online community of passionate Washington Redskins fans and others who support the team’s use of its name and logo,” is in fact being run by someone…
Washington is such a hilarious disaster, man. We’re not even done with the preseason, but the starting quarterback is shell-shocked and fed up, and the head coach is talking like a man who’s already in the middle of a 3-13 campaign. Here’s what Jay Gruden had to say to the press yesterday (via the Washington Post):
Washington wide receiver DeSean Jackson was talking some of that good stuff during a recent press conference, telling reporters, “I don’t feel no one could stop me. You could go get Darrelle Revis, Richard Sherman, whoever you want to get.” At today’s practice, Jackson hurt himself by running into a blocking sled.
Dan Snyder’s football team continues to be the biggest embarrassment in sports. To wit:
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser has been on record stating that she believes the Washington Redskins should change their name. Lately, however, she’s gone back to saying “Redskins” while talking about the team in public, and it might be because she’s trying to curry favor with team owner Dan Snyder.
The "Redskins" name controversy has played out all over America for years now, in precincts high and low. It's now turned up, though, in the last place you'd expect—Lancaster, N.Y. Some of the same spurious Indians defending the NFL team's name jumped in the small-town fray this week.
Dan Snyder had a lousy Native American Heritage Month. His team went 0-for-November, bottoming out in Indianapolis with RGIII on the bench and the owner's pet's career in worse shape than his left and right menisci. Plus there was that brutal New Yorker cover and a gloriously oblivious "Happy Thanksgiving" tweet sent…
As part of his campaign to convince you that his team's name isn't racist, Dan Snyder took in today's game with Ben Shelly, president of the Navajo Nation. Once again, Dan probably should have done a little more research.
