Why do you play the game? You play the game to win. But a close second to actually winning the game on the field? Winning it OFF the field.
Redskins President and GM Bruce Allen cited Washington's off-field success on Wednesday during an end-of-year press conference while talking about a 4-12 football team with more head coaches (4) than winning seasons (3) in the last decade.
Also, what are the Redskins "winning" off the field exactly? The battle over their name which many people find racist? Maybe Allen was referring to the public-relations debacle the team constantly finds itself in.
Whatever the case, everyone was very impressed.
The Bruce Allen Era has gone pretty much exactly how many thought it would. Skins fans searching for signs of hope, good luck finding any— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) December 31, 2014
If you count that press conference, Redskins are 4-13 for the season.— Neil Greenberg (@ngreenberg) December 31, 2014
How is it possible to feel worse about the future of a team than you did right after they went 4-12? Feel like we lost another 6 games today— Chris Kinard (@ChrisKinard) December 31, 2014
That presser was embaaaarrasssing. I seriously can't believe that was an NFL press conference. I can't believe this is an NFL organization.— Kent Babb (@kentbabb) December 31, 2014
Bruce Allen explains it all. Pay no attention to the management behind the curtain: pic.twitter.com/2cFimNpGdN— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) December 31, 2014
