WASHINGTON — NASCAR royalty Dale Earnhardt Jr. has 1.86 million followers on Twitter, and today he used his incredible platform to muse about the Washington Redskins.
Earnhardt Jr. is a well-documented, lifelong fan of the team, and likes what he saw out of Kirk Cousins this season:
Essentially, Earnhardt is asking the team to put trust in Cousins and hit reset with another year under everyone’s belt. Defensive coordinator Joe Barry took a lot of heat from sports radio, but Earnhardt calls on the coaching staff to be retained. Retain a few free agent wide receivers, draft well, and you just might have a winner in 2017.
