For Redskins fans, it’s always about winning

I read something this weekend about Jerry Jones “fretting” about wins and losses. As I read the piece, by Rick Snider in the Washington Post, I paused for a moment, and was struck by how profound winning, or in the case of the Cowboys and the Redskins, losing was in determining their fan support. In the piece, both Jones, and executive vice president Stephen Jones were worried...

Redskins should let DeSean walk after 2016

At some point in 2016, DeSean Jackson will make a spectacular play. Maybe it’s a long punt return, maybe it’ll come on a long catch from his QB, (also playing for a contract) that results in a touchdown.
