Redskins reputation a serious issue heading into 2019

Things appeared to be moving in the right direction this offseason. The Washington Redskins had shuffled around their front office, giving more power to officials like Doug Williams, Kyle Smith, Eric Schaffer, and the aforementioned LaFemina. Alex Smith was brought in to be a consummate locker room leader, and judging by the team’s reaction to his career-threatening injury, he did his job well.

The Redskins progress may soon be locked into the past, however. There’s no guarantee Smith plays again, and in the aftermath of his injury, the team has fallen apart. A four-game losing streak has soured the locker room to its core, and the acquisition of Reuben Foster amidst looming criminal charges certainly didn’t help matters.
