The Redskins Super Team
We’ve seen plenty of so-called “super teams” in pro sports over the years but very few live up to their potential. In 2000, it looked as if Washington cracked the code when they assembled a spectacular roster. Former Washington owner Dan Snyder opened his checkbook wide to lure expensive free agents to the nation’s capital.
This was a risky strategy as he tried to buy a Super Bowl. In the end, it didn’t pay off as the Redskins went 8-8. Coach Norv Turner wasted a stunning roster as Washington blew a massive opportunity. But this version of the Redskins was far from the only one as we’ve seen this happen many times over the years (via Fansided).
