We know that some players are not shy about hiding their dislike for opponents, but it’s not often we get to hear owners trash opposing teams. Apparently that’s what Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder was doing following his team’s 17-16 win over the New York Giants on “Monday Night Football.”
According to USA Today’s Robert Klemko, Snyder was “offering congratulations to anyone who would take them” inside the Redskins’ locker room.
Klemko also reports that Snyder shook the hand of one staffer, telling him as he walked away, “I hate those mother——.”
The ‘Skins lost to the Giants in Week 7 27-23, so the win had to be sweet for Washington. Not only did they get revenge, but at 6-6, they’re now only a game out in the division race. The Redskins have also won three games in a row against NFC East opponents for the first time since 2005.
Rest assured, Dan, that the Giants are probably thinking the same thing to themselves.

Robert Griffin III is so good, he even fumbles correctly.
The Redskins’ rookie quarterback was running down the field when he lost control of the ball. He then turned near disaster into a miracle with a well placed (and accidental) flick to his teammate while going down to the turf. Some heads up play by wide receiver Joshua Morgan resulted in a 12-yard fumble return for a touchdown...
Ridiculous tattoos have long been a staple of sports fandom, with each new splotch of ink seemingly outdoing the last.
This next one is no different.
One Twitter user, QuinnNYG, proved he's a "true fan" of Steve Weatherford, getting the signature of the Giants punter tattooed on his leg.
Yes, you read that correctly. Here's the proof.
RG3 has been a Godsend to the Washington Redskins and a nightmare for the rest of the league. The guy can beat you throwing the football, running with the football…and apparently kicking the football.

The last time the New York Giants visited the Washington Redskins on a Monday night, the national television audience got to see coach Jim Zorn and the home team embarrass themselves with one of the silliest fake field goal attempts ever seen in the NFL, the everybody-run-to-one-side play that belongs in high school.
Zorn was fired a few weeks later.
A year earlier, those prime...
