By Destino in ES CoverageThe home team fans are at home, these games no longer matter, and it’s probably better for the team to lose than it is to win. It must be December in Washington. Welcome to week 15!
There are two camps for Redskins fans at this time of year. Those that want to tank and those that want to win. If this describes you, I want you to know something important. You’re wrong. You should probably feel bad about it too, but that’s your business. The right way to go about this, is simply to embrace the doublethink.
Before and after the game it’s perfectly reasonable to acknowledge that losing has its advantages. It does and it is undeniable. Afterall we could be talking about the difference between Chase Young being in a Redskins uniform, or not. What we need for that to happen is simple. Redskins lose out. Giants beat the Dolphins and Redskins. Dolphins beat the Bengals. All of these things are perfectly reasonable outcomes. We’re that close to having an elite pass rusher.
Before that happens, we have a game to play. It is in this moment that we should embrace the other side of our demented doublethink. While the game is being played, especially against a division opponent, fans should want their team to do well. Assuming they have a soul and any decency. There is just no way that I can root for the Eagles to beat the Redskins during a game. If you are the type of fan that does this, I hope you find someone that can fix what has broken inside of you.

Check back for updates. I’m going to wander around the room for a while and stretch my legs to get away from a certain well-known ESPN Eagle fan’s boring conversations that my ear phones aren’t blocking out entirely.
