With the release of the 2014 schedule imminent, NFL media released a trailer entitled “Redskins vs. Eagles: Enemy of the State.”
This is not an elaborate Will Smith gag.
The clip cuts together talking heads from NFL Network tracking the DeSean Jackson narrative from getting cut in Philadelphia to being embraced by the Washington Redskins. It’s all set to ominous soundscapes that belong in a political smear ad.
This is designed to get you jacked up, and I’ll admit it worked on me. It gets the people going!
ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snyder since 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
