The fNFL Players’ Association released its Top 50 Player Sales List, I do not see any or our Washington Redskins players names on there. What is even worse is that those Dallas Cowboys have 5 players among the Top 15 sellers. Now this is just insulting. We fans need to buy some new Redskins jerseys, items.

We have our favorite players. Kirk Cousins is #8, Ryan Kerrigan is #91, Jordon Reed #86. We cannot allow the Dallas Cowboys to beat us at anything. I personally am guilty since I usually wear my old Larry Brown 43 jersey, or my Jerry Smith 87 jersey since I became a fan since 1969, but I am going to do my part and buy 3 new Washington Redskins jerseys.
After Kirk Cousins gets a long term deal, I will buy a #8 Cousins jersey. In the meantime, I will get a Ryan Kerrigan #91 jersey and a #86 jersey for Jordan Reed. I have only had the Larry Brown 43 jersey since 1971 and Jerry Smith jersey since 1973. I suppose I could use a new look. I think my fellow Redskins fan will be happy to see me in a new jersey at the sports bar on game day.
Another revealing statistic is that women spend more money on NFL merchandise than men do. Let’s get with it guys, We need to wear some new, 2017 Washington Redskins jerseys and get some Redskins stuff and whip those doggone Cowboys.
