“One thing about it, they have nowhere near the tradition of Redskins fans,” Wilson said then. “My uncle is 50-so years old and all they know are Redskins. And you’d almost think somebody’s died when the Redskins have lost.”
And that’s why he kept up with the Skins before he arrived back in D.C.
“Even being on other teams around the league, I still would watch and say, ‘Man, come on Redskins!’” he told the team’s Web site in August.
So Wilson likely had a pretty good idea what he was doing when he autographed this photo.
