According to Chris Chase of USA Today, Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder is the subject of a 4,500-word profile in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine. The most interesting part is what Snyder used to do in the owners box after losses.

“After losses, Snyder would stay until 4 a.m., pounding drinks, downing burgers and pizza and blaming himself for being, in the words of a friend, “his own worst enemy,” wrote Seth Wickersham.

Snyder must have done some real damage to himself, since the Redskins haven’t won that much since he took over as the owner.

Now I understand why he used to throw loads of money at free agents. He was clearly trying to break his habit.

Redskins K Cundiff can't afford another bad game

Billy Cundiff knew his job was on the line. At least he had a sense of humor about it. In a year in which NFL kickers have been making field goals with record accuracy, Cundiff missed three in a tight game. He knew he would get one more chance as he watched Robert Griffin III drive the Washington Redskins down the field, trailing by one. ''I was joking with a guy on the...

RB Morris’ all-business approach paying big dividends for Redskins

With every performance, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is proving worth the mega-hype he has been receiving. However, even though he's on pace to become the first NFL quarterback to run for 1,000 yards, Griffin isn't Washington's top rusher or even its No. 1 rookie on the ground.
