Washington Redskins' practice gets disrupted by huge brawl

Football News

Washington Redskins have had a terrible season so far and it looks like things are getting worse before they get better.

It seems that not a day goes by without something ridiculous happening at the Redskins, and today's insane news out of the capital includes an actual fight.

We've had weeks and weeks of backstabbing and critical comments flying around the camp, but on Wednesday the team graduated to the big boy leagues of ultimate dysfunction when two players started fighting.

Epic fight

Andre Roberts and Bashaud Breeland were the two Washington players that let their emotions get the better of them during practice on Wednesday, with Roberts seemingly reacting to Breeland with an attempted punch to the face. Both players windmilled for a while before teammates intervened to break the two apart.

There are two ways you can view the scenes, which can be SEEN ON THIS LINK. Either you feel that this fight just highlights all that is wrong with the Redskins right now, or alternatively it is an example that Washington's players have not given up the fight this season, pardon the pun.

Gruden not bothered

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden certainly believes that the fight is not something to be too worried about, with the bossman even intimating to reporters that he enjoyed the sight of his players showing they still have some fire left in them.

Should Washington fans be worried?

But the counter argument to that is the reality, Washington is a mess and the latest incident proves it. To make things worse, in the blurry picture above you can see DeSean Jackson in the bottom left clearly looking on thinking the incident is nothing new. 

If this fight was a unique event of a dysfunctional nature then maybe you could brush it under the carpet as too much fire in the belly. But this incident is just the latest example of teammates arguing, albeit the first time that we've seen two of the Washington players actually come to physical blows.

What do you think Redskins fans? Do you respect the players for showing some passion or do you believe it's another example of how messed up the Washington organization is? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
