Washington Redskins general manager/president Bruce Allen held his annual end-of-the-season press conference and he used the opportunity to let everyone know that everything is coming up Washington.
The man in charge of compiling a roster which went 4-12 this past season doesn’t want anyone to worry because Washington is winning everywhere but on the football field.
"We are winning off the field" – Bruce Allen — a real, live human person who is in charge of a professional football team.

The saddest thing is that it’s hard to see how Washington is even winning off the field. Did RGIII suddenly become unbroken? Did Dan Snyder sell the team?
The rest of the press conference wasn’t that much better for Allen who seemed to be competing in some imaginary “corporate-speak” championship of his own making.
Bruce Allen: "Just because something didn't work doesn't mean it won't work."

Bruce Allen says that two division wins, after zero in '13, is a sign of improvement.

Was anyone buying it? Of course not.
Have never, ever, ever, ever, ever covered anyone, at any level, who seems more out of touch than Bruce Allen. Ever.

Sounds about right.
