2015 Season 'A Different Vibe' Than 2012 Run

The languishing feels longer. The last two Decembers have been anchored in misery for the Washington Redskins, but the malaise feels more extended than that. A sort of melancholy time warp.

There was nothing football-related to celebrate when the last two Redskins seasons closed. Last season, the Redskins were 4-11 before Christmas. New head coach Jay Gruden's ability was being questioned. What quarterback Robert Griffin III had turned into was being wondered about. At least that season brought the could-be-worse spirit along with the end of the year. The bruising of 2013 was more severe.
