First, a full disclosure: I grew up in Virginia singing “Hail to the Redskins” and worshiping at the alter of Hall-of-Famer John Riggins as the team dominated all before them in the 1980s.
So I now know how fellow Pros(er) Kyle feels watching the Lions. Somewhere between sick to my stomach and just plain heartsick. It’s a bumbling team that at one time not long ago was the class of the NFL – OK, similarity with the Lions ends there – that’s become a conundrum of underperforming talent and a league laughingstock that winless teams look forward to on the schedule.
But I’m nowhere near as upset as Riggins, who currently is hosting a video series and lighting up Twitter with his ideas on why the Redskins have become one of the worst teams in the league. “Head” coach Jim Zorn (“he could be a good high school coach”) and General Manager Vinny Cerrado (“He should go on radio … be an analyst”) receive the brunt of the Diesel’s wrath.
Keep on blasting away, Riggo, like you did back in the day:
