LOVERRO: Winning in Green Bay would give Redskins excuse to keep Callahan


When Jay Gruden’s Redskins squad started the 2015 season 2-4, the coach famously declared their next game against Tampa Bay a “Code Red” game, suggesting a loss to the Bucs would result in severe consequences.

Maybe it’s a rainbow of irrationality.
