Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

You made the comment. How should it be read other than as snide and derisive?

An encouraging perspective today from a reporter trying to interpret Garcon's remarks:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/foo ... -and-more/

Q: While it’s no doubt Pierre Garcon was a huge spark for our offense last year when he did play with his energy, physicality, big-play ability, and flashes of great speed. Am I the only one finding it a little concerning our No. 1 receiver is saying “I can’t say I’ll be 100 percent” for 2013 after this extended time of rest and rehab?
– Alec Gerard

A: It is a little concerning, but at the same time, one thing I learned last season about Garcon from talking to him and talking to teammates about him, is that he is extremely guarded and never likes to raise expectations unrealistically or make predictions. So, that’s why he wouldn’t commit to being 100 percent, although he and his camp, and his doctors believe that his toe will have healed to the point that he’ll have his speed and explosiveness by the start of the season. There was no guarantee that surgery would have fixed the torn ligament in his second toe, and so he held off on that, and this past winter, a little more than a month after the season ended, he had a follow-up checkup, and doctors said that his toe was still making progress and that he wouldn’t need surgery.

This is promising! I was beginning to think he should go under the knife, as there may be something not seen on xray similar to Helu. Glad to see the doctor thinks he should be fine.
