You may think it’s funny, but the Washington Redskins totally believe they can win Super Bowl 50.
After beating the New York Giants last Sunday 20-14, Washington is now tied for first place — controlling their own destiny at this point.
According to the Washington Post, it was revealed that a players-only meeting that the team held on Saturday night, sparked all this Super Bowl talk.
“I was one of the guys that spoke,” Jean Francois said of the meeting, via the Washington Post. “And I was like, I don’t know how many times we’ve got to hit our heads against the wall to know we have the team to actually win it all. All we’ve just got to do is actually display it and actually believe in it.”
“I said another [thing]: If you trust the man next to you, the job is gonna get done,” Jean Francois said. “If I can trust Jason Hatcher, I can trust Chris Baker, I can trust [Stephen] Paea, my job is easy because I know those guys gonna get that job done. We have the team to win it all. The only people that got to believe is the people inside this locker room.”
Those comments come on the heels of safety Dashon Goldson saying that Kirk Cousins could lead Washington to the promise land.
The Redskins may not win the Super Bowl, but they should make the playoffs, thanks to a schedule that includes zero games remaining against teams that currently have a winning record.
