WASHINGTON, D.C., November 28, 2013 — As football fans across the District sit down to dinner this afternoon, we will all be asked what we are thankful. Here’s your quick pocket guide to top 3 things Redskins fans have to be thankful for.

1. Robert Griffin’s Knee Brace

The national commentator’s can talk all day long about how Redskins fans want RGIII’s knee to be back to 100%. We all know the truth. The longer that brace stays on, the longer we have an excuse. One day Robert will be back to full power on his run game. And on that day we’ll be able to see how good this team really is. Up until then, fans are thankful for the brace, for giving us one medical device we can blame the entire offense’s problem on.

2. The Name Scandal

We all know the truth. The team’s name is offensive to some people. Eventually it will change. By 2093, nobody will care. Until that inevitable change, let people keep talking about it. The more people focus on the insensitivity of naming a national franchise after a racial slur, the less they focus on the 10-6 NFC East champs somehow falling to 3-8 this year. The even better news? If this scandal ever dies down, we just need to sing a few verses of “Hail To The Redskins” to reignite the controversy.

3. The Giants

And, for that matter, the NFC “Least” as it’s been called this year. Riddle me this football fans: How on Earth does a 3-8 team have any kind of chance at making the playoffs? Yes, it’s a small chance. Virtually nonexistent to be fair. But the slow start that all for teams in the conference got off to this year means that- somehow- the Redskins still have a chance at the post season.
