REDSKINS fans all over the place are acting as if 2015’s 9-7 season was some sort of an accomplishment. Fact is, almost everyone who writes about/covers the NFL thought they were likely to have the year they had in 2015. Let me emphasize the words “likely to have the year THEY had”. Their record was no surprise. The fact that it was enough to win the NFC East, was the surprise.
This is part of the reason that the national media isn’t claiming the Redskins will do it again in 2016. Nobody buys into the notions that A) The Redskins can even be 8-8 again or B) that that record would win the East.
When I look at who in the NFC East people are talking about, it seems to be focused on your Philadelphia Eagles and on the team in Texas. Not even new york is garnering much fan fare, but at least their fans are smart enough to keep their traps shut.
Like I said though, nobody is talking about the Redskins. It’s like they’ve become invisible. Like they’re fading away.
