The Washington Redskins have moved past the smoldering stage. As they stumble and bumble about, they have managed to validate the many criticisms tossed their direction. In an offseason of hope begging “what’s next”, owner Daniel Snyder has defaulted to something fans are familiar with: chaos and dysfunction.

Been there, done that.

Coming off of two successful offseasons where the team cultivated talent, wins, and a playoff appearance, the Redskins find themselves on the precipice of imminent disaster.

Here’s your scorecard fans:

DeSean Jackson off to Tampa Bay.
Pierre Garçon headed west to San Francisco.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins still without a long term deal, still being asked to prove himself AGAIN, and now being asked to do so without the team’s best offensive weapons.

How do you think this is looking for a successful game plan come September?

It’s not. But it is a familiar narrative for an owner who is remarkably tone deaf and just arrogant enough to be the biggest hurdle to his team’s potential success.

If you’re Kirk Cousins, why on earth would you want any part of an organization who doesn’t want to make a deal long term with you, won’t trade you, and let’s your best receivers (plural) get away via free agency?

Sometimes, signs are everywhere. If you’re the Washington Redskins, the signs are pointing to a pretty quick slide into the type of abject mediocrity that fans believed were finally behind them.

Adding insult to injury, is the quagmire that is General Manager Scot McCloughan. Another sign that while it may not be a Five Alarm fire, it’s big enough that if not extinguished quickly, it will be.

The Redskins have been there, and done that too.
