This Unearthed 2013 Washington Football Team Graphic Is Enough To Make You Want To Puke | This is the loop


Take a look at the NFL playoff picture right now. On Saturday night, the San Francisco 49ers, vying for their second Super Bowl appearance in three years, travel to Lambeau Field to take on the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. On Sunday afternoon, the Rams look to finally eliminate Tom Brady, a stumbling block in the franchise since 2002. Led by Kyle Shanahan, Matt LaFluer and Sean McVay, these teams shine a spotlight on the new generation of genius coaches in the NFL – three offensive wizards who promise to lead the league for years to come.

Now, what if we told you that they were all part of the same team and that team showed them each the door? Can you guess which proud football franchise was stupid enough to do this?

In the immortal words of Elaine Benes, we are speechless, we are speechless. Many things have summed up the fate of the Washington football team in recent years. Janky railings. Leaking pipes. Heinous allegations at the front office and an owner wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving in January. Hell, even the fact that they are still calling themselves the “Washington Football Team” nearly two years after dropping their old racist name. But when it comes to the actual product on the pitch, nothing epitomizes the staggering levels of incompetence like this. As Sharp points out, they hired Jay Gruden instead of retaining those guys. JAY GRUDEN! Gruden spent more than five years with the team, went 35-49-1, reportedly benched a running back because they slept with the same woman, and spent the last few months of his tenure begging for ‘to be fired. Eventually he was, becoming the first Gruden brother to be blacklisted by the NFL, which is saying a lot.

There’s no guarantee keeping LaFleur, McVay or Shanahan on staff would have made a difference. Incompetent organizations make everyone look like a failure because they can’t develop talent; because they forced their employees to fail before they even entered the field. Ask Robert Griffin III about it. In fact, as football fans, we should be thanking our lucky stars that these guys ran away from DC and are now plying their trades in legacy franchises deep in the playoffs. If you’re a fan of the Washington football team, feel free to throw up. Nobody would blame you.
