The Washington Redskins are terrible.
Coming off a bye week, the Redskins lost at home 27-7 to the woebegone 1-8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Losing at home to an NFC South team is the ultimate embarrassment this season.
On the CSN Washington postgame show, Skins legend Brian Mitchell had seen enough. In two minutes of airtime, the former running back and return man showed more heart and desire than the Redskins did for four quarters against the Bucs. As far as hometown broadcasts and ex-players go, this is about as critical as you’re going to see. And it’s all deserved.
Some of the highlights in quotation form…
“Embarrassing. This is atrocious. It’s despicable. It’s pathetic. I think it’s asinine.”
“I see a lot of players blaming media and everybody else and running around as if they won the damn Super Bowl somewhere.”
“This team has SUCKED over the last few years. And as a former player I’m embarrassed to watch this junk over and over again.”
“Play some damn football, you sucked on the field today. And you know who you are.”
“Too many times we sit there and we kiss this team’s ass because we see a burgundy and gold person wearing it. What you got to start doing is make the team understand you mean business.”
Good thing Daniel Snyder doesn’t own CSN Washington so Mitchell could actually speak his mind. And have a job tomorrow.
