Redskins market McNabb to sell season tickets
Football organizations are wide-ranging outfits, with marketing and business and community-relations and football operations arms. You can't really expect the football people to tell the ticket people what they're doing.
And yet still, you have to admit it's an odd sort of week when the coach benches his starting quarterback and says he can't guarantee his future with the franchise ON THE EXACT SAME DAY that the ticket people send out a solicitation letter inviting fans "to join head coach Mike Shanahan and quarterback Donovan McNabb for the 2011 season."
A bunch of people apparently got these letters over the weekend. And I'm guessing more than one of them had a sad, sad chuckle when they read those accursed words. Click on the above image to see the full letter, if you dare.
(Thanks to Reader T., who sent this along.)
UPDATE: I'm told the concept for this letter was approved in November, and the letters were mailed early last week, before the quarterback switch was announced. Like I suggested above, unfortunate timing.
