Redskins fans have lost faith in the direction of their team

As the losing streak hits 4 games, the Redskins start their 4th quarterback of the season, the injuries pile up and a promising practice squad player heads to the Saints, Redskins fans feel a sense of deja vu all over again

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Redskins fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

From Week 11 to this week, the confidence of Hogs Haven readers who answer the FanPulse poll has dropped like a lead balloon. This week, the confidence level sits at just 3%, having dropped from a high of 83% following the Week 8 game.

Only two fan bases in the NFL have lower confidence than the Redskins’ fans: Panthers’ fans, at 2%, and Broncos fans, at 0%.

Fans of this week’s opponents, the Jacksonville Jaguars, sit one spot above Hog’s Haven readers, at 4%.

All in all, there are a lot of crises of faith among NFL teams that have lost a lot of games of late.

At the other end of the spectrum, the most confident fan bases are the Saints (100%), Browns (98%), Colts (96%), and Bears (96%), demonstrating that confidence isn’t just about wins and losses, but includes long-term direction and other factors.
