Snyder’s alarm over Dwayne Haskins’ ankle was partly understandable: He surely wanted to protect his big-name first-round draft pick, whose dynamic potential at the most critical position will be counted on next season to lift the team from 3-12 and last place in the NFC East.
But arguably no one has done more real, unsung, muddy, thankless work to protect Haskins than Morgan Moses. He has had a rough season, as have all of the Redskins, and he deserves equal care.
It beggars belief that after two solid decades of toxic dysfunction and failure, the owner would not be more self-aware and careful about the messages he sends with his interactions with players.
How are the Redskins supposed to reset their culture if the owner appears to be playing his same old game of pet-the-favorite? Does he have no understanding at all of basic organizational dynamics? Does he not know how favoritism can impair a team, hobble coaching staffs and mess with a locker room?
