All that popped in my head last night as I was driving home from FedExField was Sublime’s “I’ve seen better days”—well because I have. Most of Redskins Nation can agree with me on this.
This weather is best kept to Canadia and polar bears. The production from the hometown football team has left much to be desired, too.
Whether it’s the drama of speculated off the field relations, the constant special teams woes, the broken tackles a usually stout defensive unit has accrued or the offense failing to live up to its big play, quick strike moniker, the 2013 season hasn’t come even remotely close to the excitement 2012 gave us.
“Griffining” Week 1, the Tampa Bay comeback, the electrifying 76-yard run, Thanksgiving Day triumphs, sad Cowboys fans, consoling a downtrodden Tony Romo, beating the Eagles twice, the pitch/fumble to Joshua Morgan, the come-from-behind victory vs. Baltimore, Kirk Cousins ballin’ out in the factory of sadness and Alfred Morris waltzing his way into the record books are all—sadly—a thing for Redskins Historian Mike Richman to savor today.
Anyway, that loquacious introduction leads to quarterback Robert Griffin III’s postgame press conference—one you don’t want to miss after ending the game on the sidelines to not risk him in a game the Chiefs had a firm grip hold on.
