Another game, another embarrassment, and the Redskins, now 3-8, took another step toward a disastrous end. They got outplayed by the 49ers and failed again to protect their home field. Neither team played particularly well, but the 49ers did well enough to overcome their shortcomings while the Redskins did not.
They don't have the answers, though they certainly say all the right things. They're trying hard. They're led by the right people. They have the right guys in the locker room. Here's the thing: Parades aren't thrown for those accomplishments. Not when you're four years into a regime.
A look at why the offensive issues from last night's game were the most troubling for the Redskins.
Any vestige of salvation of the Washington Redskins' crumbling season emphatically ended on Monday night when they were humiliated by the San Francisco 49ers, 27-6, at FedEx Field.
I can't believe how wrong I was about this season, picking the Redskins to go 10-6 and then to get hot in the playoffs and reach the NFC Championship Game. Yes, I bought in to what I saw in the summer and to what I heard. I bought into them having the right sort of locker room (still think that) and how players coming back from injuries would help and how Robert Griffin III might not be himself but would be good enough and that the defense would be better. I hate being wrong; I was very wrong. It's easy to see what you missed when you look back.
