Redskins Fan Dale Earnhardt Jr. Rips Team For Firing General Manager


If you follow Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Twitter, you’d know he’s a huge Washington Redskins fan. And if you’ve been following him this week, you’d also know he’s not their biggest supporter right now.

Washington has been making some interesting moves this offseason, including franchise tagging quarterback Kirk Cousins for the second straight season instead of extending him, even after Cousins reportedly asked for a trade. And on Thursday, while every other team was wheeling and dealing at the official start of the new NFL year, Washington fired its general manager, Scot McCloughan, instead.

And Earnhardt was not happy at all.

We can imagine Earnhardt isn’t the only Washington fan who feels that way, especially considering there are some shady reports surrounding McLoughan’s firing. The team said it fired its GM because of his problems with alcohol, but at least two Washington reporters heard late in the season the team was planning on using that as an excuse all along.

It doesn’t look as though the Hendrick Motorsports driver, or the rest of the Redskins’ fanbase will have much to look forward to this NFL season if Washington doesn’t make some big moves.
