I have been blogging the Redskins for 10 years and I love this franchise. I am not so much angry at or frustrated by the MNF loss to the Seahawks as I am resigned to what they are. The Redskins consistently deliver a roster that wins six to eight games per season. They have averaged a fraction over seven wins per season since 1992. No first year coach since George Allen in 1972 has won more than eight games in his first year. There are games and seasons when the Redskins have been more than they are. Those are exceptions.
I do not hold the players or Gruden accountable for Monday’s loss. The Redskins have been a poorly run franchise for a very long time. It predates Daniel Snyder. The worst I will say about Snyder is that he failed to make it better. I doubt that he has the executive chops to do better. He is the Kirk Cousins of NFL owners. He takes risks. He does some good things. His misreads lead to bad choices. He does not win. The salary cap sanction hurt, but cap management is better now. That’s something to start with. We take our front office improvements in small doses around here. One thing shall always be true: Hail to the Redskins.
