ARE THE REDSKINS "SPELL - BOUND?"

Much has been written about the possible impact of off the field distractions, primarily the friction between the Shanahans and RGIII and the helicopter presence of the quarterback's family,  as the reason for the Redskins less than stellar play this season. Could part of the problem also be the relentless focus on the team's name? Or maybe those irate Native Americans cast a spell on them? Just asking... 

OF REDSKINS AND DOLPHINS

Just where are those Oneida Native Americans - and all the others who have been so dogged in their disgust for the Redskins moniker - now that the NFL potentially has a real and far from manufactured or historically remote racist controversy in the Miami Dolphins' organization? SILENT! Apparently their indignation is self serving and selective as to offender and offendee. Tsk, tsk...how inconsistent...how disingenuous...how the distraction is making it easy for almost any competitor to beat Washington's team!
