1) Redskins fans, and all NFL fans, really, tend to overreact to preseason games.
2) You don’t have to look very hard on Twitter to find people saying dumb things.

Kinda Funny but Treading Lightly

Not Entirely Unreasonable but Still Silly
Impressive stuff from 5th seasoned Colt McCoy. Surely he can't give RGIII a run for his money? #Redskins
