If you don’t live in the Washington D.C. area, then you don’t understand the passion these fans have for the Washington Redskins. Aside from politics, they eat, sleep, and breathe the Redskins.
When the Redskins win, the city is elated and smiles are passed from one face to another the following day. When they lose, everyone acts as they just lost a loved one. Yes, it’s that deep in Bennett super fan territory. Therefore, when the Redskins beat the 6-1 Cowboys in overtime on Monday Night Football, the city was more than pleased, and hope was restored. However, that win presents a long-term problem.
The problem is that Colt McCoy won his first start for the Redskins, which might lead some Redskins fans to believe he’s the best option. This couldn’t happen at a worse time because RGIII is due back very soon. RGIII was the most electrifying QB in the game in 2012, but he suffered an injury early in 2013, and he has only been a shell of his former self since. Nobody knows what the problem is, but there’s no doubt that RGIII has much greater potential than Colt McCoy. This has already been proven on the field.
Redskins fans made the mistake of thinking Kirk Cousins was a better option at QB than RGIII, but this was quickly proven to be incorrect. Hopefully, Redskins fans won’t make the same mistake again.
