Redskins fans thought for sure that their fortunes were changing in 2012, when the arrival of Robert Griffin III ushered in a 10-6 season and a playoff berth, the first winning season and playoff appearance since 2007.

A CVS in Harrisonburg, Va., had a clever sign up this week as the Redskins fell to 0-3 on the season. The CVS advertised tissues at 99 cents a pop, with the hook that fans should “stock up in case the Redskins don’t improve.” It’s hard to argue with that reasoning.
