Virginia and the Redskins
The team is losing, the offense is struggling and the coach might get fired at the end of the season.
Virginia football has much in common with the NFL team up U.S. 29 -- a point not lost on Cavaliers wide receiver Jared Green, the son of Redskins Hall of Famer Darrell Green, when he speaks to some of his friends on the Redskins.
"We always talk about that," Green said. "It's something that we talk about basically every time I talk on the phone with the different guys. It's unfortunate, but it's just one of those things, one of those years."
Green said he is close friends with Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell, wide receivers Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle El, and cornerback Justin Tryon, who he said is like an "older brother."
"I haven't been able to follow the Redskins on TV; I've been able to talk to my buddies on the team on the phone," Green said. "I've been able to check out the highlights. I know they've been going through a lot. But I'm really only there as a friend than as a fan."
Virginia is 3-6. The Redskins are 2-6. Opponents have outscored Virginia by 38 points. Opponents have outscored the Redsins by 37 points.
Virginia plays Boston College this weekend. The Redskins play the Denver Broncos. Which team will win next?
