There will be no miracle finish for the Washington Redskins in 2013 as there was in 2012. This a team that is absolutely dead in the water after being suffocated by the 49ers on Monday night.
Where to start with this train wreck? How about on defense, where coordinator Jim Haslett has presided over a comically poor unit? Haslett will likely lose his job regardless of whether the rest of the coaching staff stays or goes.
Then there's coach Mike Shanahan and his son Kyle, the team's offensive coordinator. The play-calling has been atrocious, particularly over the past few weeks. The staff looks lost.
And we can't mention "train wreck" and "Redskins" without discussing their second-year quarterback, Robert Griffin III.
Griffin is clearly not himself but deserves a pass for this season in regards to on-field matters. He's a young player who's coming off an ACL tear, didn't have the benefit of an offseason and didn't play at all in the preseason. His struggles should surprise no one.
But Griffin doesn't deserve a pass for his off-field conduct. He's clearly a good kid, but doesn't know when to stop talking and what not to say. Whether it's throwing teammates and coaches under the bus or looking like a deer in the headlights after each loss, it's clear that Griffin has work to do when it comes to the "fifth quarter."
The Redskins can only hope to play spoiler the remainder of the season.
