Bruce Allen is the Washington Redskins' president and an unwitting jokester, well-known for such thigh-slappers as his claim that no matter how bad the team is, they're "winning off the field."

Kirk Cousins: If RGIII's The Starter, I Want Out

With so many crap teams hitting the reset button today, you may have briefly forgotten about Washington, the kings of dysfunction. Well, here's your reminder: they're still a mess, and they're content to come back with the same coach and GM.

DeSean Jackson Delivers A Swift Kick To The Eagles' Playoff Hopes

DeSean Jackson had a fun Saturday. The former Philadelphia Eagle got revenge on the team that cut him as he racked up 126 receiving yards on four catches, including two receptions of over 50 yards.
