“We’re winning off the field, but we’ve got to start winning on the field."

Fairly benign words, especially for the general manager of a professional sports franchise.

Nothing about the Washington Redskins is benign, however.

These words came from general manager Bruce Allen as he held his season-ending press conference on Wednesday.

The Redskins finished 4-12 after a year of intense criticism for their continuing use of an offensive nickname and logo.

As one would expect, the Internet responded in kind to Allen's presser (full recap here).
