It’s been almost four years since Washington’s slap-dick field cost them Robert Griffin III’s knee, and possibly career. Somehow, they are still letting things like happen:


At full speed that simply looks like an inaccurate throw getting tipped into the air for an unfortunate game-tying pick-six, but on the replay angle you can see Cousins’s front foot get caught in the turf, throwing off his balance and altering the throw.

It’s literally unbelievable that Washington is still making its own players deal with this shit. Having a playable surface that does not routinely threaten to both undermine and harm your own players is one of the most basic responsibilities an organization has to fulfill. Dan Snyder is a clown.
