It’s March and the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys are desperate for #content. They’re also, apparently, thinking about the Eagles this St. Patrick's Day.
On Sunday, the Redskins tweeted this head-scratcher of a burn on the Eagles.
Since this is one of the weakest social media burns we’ve ever seen, Eagles fans, and the team account itself, came to defend its team and make fun of Washington immediately.

Wow this is quite possibly the worst attempt at a burn I’ve seen in a while— Harrison (@harrygk83) March 17, 2019
I’ve never seen a tweet more worthy of this gif pic.twitter.com/NlwPg9292w— sad philly fan (@rj____________3) March 17, 2019
If it wasn’t enough, the Cowboys thought it was a good idea to join.
However, they even tweeted out a green logo earlier today.
It’s funny to think about how this even came about. The folks who work in social media for Washington probably had a planning meeting, saw the holiday was coming up and brainstormed ideas. When we think of these types of social burns, they’re typically pretty well-vetted to make sure it’ll at least be funny and fans will enjoy it. I just don’t get this one at all. It’s not even remotely funny or interesting.
Even Redskins fans agree.

Look, it’s March 17, and everyone will be filling out brackets this week and not necessarily thinking about football, which, for a week is just fine. It just proves that we are in a weird cycle of the year when even NFL teams are reaching for relevance.
Let’s save the funny internet burns for a little closer to the season and watch some basketball this week. We can go back to obsessing over the NFL before the draft.
