Considering the team’s troubles over the last several years, it would be difficult for fans not to be pessimistic, so you can understand why Chris Williams felt safe when he made the following proclamation on Twitter.
A quick look at Washington’s record will show you Williams has some buying to do, and he told The Washington Post he is more than happy to keep his hasty social media promise.

The last 20 years have been masochistic, no question. Few bright spots. But, this season? Completely unexpected and awesome.— Chris Williams (@slimceeVA) December 21, 2015
Williams added that he understands that the weak NFC East has bolstered the Redskins record, but he is still glad to see his favorite football team winning, and a jersey, a poster and some tweets are a small price to pay for that.
