Washington Football Team: ‘Elite’ stamp stripped from defense until further notice

Doesn’t the offseason feel like ages ago for the Washington Football Team? It sure does, and fans are surely hoping they could hit the rewind button right now, because Ron Rivera’s side is trending in the wrong direction.

A familiar theme of the young season reared its ugly head in Sunday’s loss to the Buffalo Bills, who operated as if they were facing a college defense.

We hate to even think it, let alone say it, but it might be time to call a spade a spade. Not only should Washington’s defense be stripped of the “elite” stamp until further notice, but it’s fair to call them a bad group.
