Salih Williams, better known as Bootsy Vegas. (Jonathan Ernst for the Washington Post)

Good afternoon, everyone. It's time to fire up the Reliable Source chat, so submit your questions!

Meanwhile: Can't bear to give up on your beloved Redskins? Neither can Salih Williams, a.k.a. Bootsy Vegas, who pens a weekly anthem to the wretched-of-late team on WPGC 95.5's Donnie Simpson morning show.

But as the stinging losses pile up, Williams' songs have gone from upbeat to downright gloomy. Chris Richards asked him about the difficulty of loving such a bad team:

"From the root to the fruit!" says Salih Williams, describing his lifelong devotion to the one of the most wretched teams in professional football today. "I'm a die-hard Redskins fanatic. . . . But the Redskins is like a girl I know I shouldn't mess with: I keep coming back."
