That’s where it’s all going, right?
The Washington Redskins are no strangers to dysfunction. Hell, at this point, their dysfunction is so dysfunctional, teams like the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders would be totally within their rights to point out how out wack they are.
I’m not sure the Redskins “win” versus the Detroit Lions could’ve gone any worse.
The fact that such a terrible game can be called a “win” is a crime in and of itself. The Redskins starting offense completely imploded in the face of the first solid defense it will see. Robert Griffin III had his peaks and valleys, but when he was given time, looked over-matched and overwhelmed. In the course of a half, everything wrong with the Redskins seemed to explode all at once, as if some deity on high decided “tonight is the night ALL the things will go wrong for the Redskins.”
That Robert Griffin III gets huge press when he speaks isn’t surprising. This has been the pattern for Griffin since his Heisman year at Baylor; RGIII is big business. He generates intense reactions and big media traffic and is a huge draw in a blogosphere that is competing with an ever increasing number of other sites. When you have to crank out content, an easy attention grabber like Griffin saying anything that be considered controversial is easy money.
