Last week, the Redskins were riding high atop a self-destructing NFC East, and mustaches seemed like a pleasant diversion.
“Kory Lichtensteiger has a really good mustache,” 106.7 The Fan’s Grant Paulsen noted as he posted the above picture on his Twitter feed.
“Mustache is making a serious effing comeback,” Chris Cooley posted on his own account. “Mines staying. Guarantee that.”
Both of these photos surfaced late in the week. By Sunday, both players had suffered serious injuries that will sideline them for weeks, if not the entire season.
Shanahan edict: no more mustaches. Please.
