Our first-ever Best-Worst Redskins Jerseys Contest is over, and the winner is …
That’s a rather impressive collection of suck. The Ramsey one’s my fave, but I want the Frerotte fr’real. Here’s what the proud owner, Stephen Taylor, had to say:
From my Skins closet of shame. Stopped buying jerseys after McNabb…
That was probably a good choice. And now he is the proud owner of one Offseason Champs shirt in the size of his choice.
Our sincere thanks to all who submitted a jersey/collection of jerseys. Here were some of our favorites from the contest that was:
As introduced last week, we’re running a photo contest for people to show us their best-worst Redskins jerseys.
You can see them below, enter your own and “admire” ones you like. Then, come Monday, the most-admired photo wins one free Offseason Champs shirt, on us.
So get busy entering and admiring. I can’t believe that Spurrier jersey hasn’t put more points on the board.
When you root for a team like the Redskins, you’re bound to have skeletons in the closet, and by skeletons I mean a LaVar Arrington jersey. Or a Fred Smoot. Or a Jason Campbell. Or an RGIII. Or an Orakpo. And that’s just in the Mottram family wardrobe alone.
It comes with the territory of rooting for a team that burns through high-priced free agents and high draft picks like Dan Snyder through a bottle of Crown before giving Mike Shanahan a five-year deal.
The first-place Nats won in 16 at Milwaukee last night on Ryan Zimmerman and the bullpen’s heroics, and Bryce Harper homered in a rehab start at Potomac, but this is what I choose to blog about:
If you can’t read it, Bryce’s t-shirt says, “I LOVE BAD PITCHES THAT’S MY XXXXX PROBLEM.” And if you don’t know what that’s a reference to, here’s A$SAP Rocky’s “F**kin’ Problems,” which is a jam:
And if it’s jams you want, here are my top three candidates for the 2014 Song of Summer, with a primary assist from Rubie Edmondson:
That’s FroMo, ‘Rak and Silverback, hanging out in Hawaii and looking like Baylor Bears. Too bad RGIII couldn’t join ‘em.

Apparently it was raining in Richmond today, which is one explanation for why Redskins owner Dan Snyder looked like this:
The oversized shirt and shorts combo is something to behold, but ill-fitting clothes are not new for Mr. Snyder. Scroll down to see what I mean …
