This video perfectly sums up the Washington Redskins as an organization. Their owner is out here wishing people happy Thanksgiving as the team burns to the ground surrounded by chaos.

It’s January, my man! How does Snyder make that mistake? I’d understand if he said “Merry Christmas” a few days late.

Thanksgiving? There’s just no excuse.

The Redskins are pretty much a comedy of errors we’ve never seen before in football. They’re like a car crash you desperately don’t want to watch, but you just can’t look away.

As long as Snyder is the man running the show, they’ll probably never change.

I can’t wait to see what foolish thing Snyder does next. I’m sure it won’t disappoint!
