Are the Redskins’ Players Trying to Tell us Something?

NFL: Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Recently, a lot of players have been voicing their displeasure with the team in public. Jay and his staff (as any coaching staff should), have some issues with players NOT keeping their issues in-house.

What is said behind closed doors is all fine and dandy - as long as it stays behind those closed doors, and is being dealt with man-to-man.

D.J. Swearinger is the latest Redskins to publically criticize the team and/or its coaches.

A few weeks ago, Mason Foster called out fans on an Instagram post that was meant to stay private; but got leaked.

How about the comments from Zach Brown that “the writing is on the wall”. Brown seems to know his fate is already sealed with the Redskins, and wasn’t afraid of making that public.

Add this to the comments Josh Norman made about fans not showing up to support the team at home, and you quite possibly have some issues.

Add all this up, and you get...dysfunction!

Are Redskins players trying to tell us something? Maybe, just maybe, this is worse (if humanly possible) behind closed doors?

Is this the players way of saying changes need to happen - either at the personnel level, the coaching level, or all the way at the top?

Is this a polite way of making a case for Gruden and company to be removed?


How do you feel about the players airing their grievances in public?
