If Kirk could read a defense
’Skins might actually win a game
Not like a Rodgers or Brady
Redskins quarterbacks are lame
The 4th quarter starts
Interceptions come
They can’t score a TD
As for Kirk, well, let’s get real
And you won’t watch a game again
Because the ending’s just too hard to take.
As you watch game film, Jay
What a tale your thoughts could tell
I’ll bet you need a strong drink
The kind that the liquor stores sell
When you reach the part where the heartache comes
That crying, hey that’s me
Your play calls often fail
I hope you won't call that fade again
Because that catch is just too hard for the rookie to make

A parody of “If You Could Read My Mind” by Gordon Lightfoot

i love the crying lines. John's voice is perfect for this tune. i hate saying this every year but i really do feel for washington fans. i'm not sure this team will ever be great again until this owner dies. and he's only 51.

This is wonderfully done all around. About time the fade route gets derisive mentions in multiple songs.

Perfect blend of snark and serious. "Redskins quarterbacks are lame" really makes me laugh. Great job, gents!
