Wale pays a visit to Redskins practice
Who better to ask about the Redkins' prospects than superfan Wale? The D.C.-bred rapper hung out at Redskins Park for training camp Wednesday, where he told our colleague Jorge Castillo he predicts they'll go to the playoffs.
With what kind of record? "Uhhh, 9-7, 10-6." Really? Because that doesn't sound strong enough for the playoffs. Wale (in a black T-shirt with the image of a lime-green rib cage, olive cargo pants and gray and lime Nikes) explained his reasoning.
"You look at Minnesota with [Brett] Favre not coming back, I don't think they're a playoff team. Everybody says Dallas is the favorite -- I'm not 100 percent convinced on that. ... You got the whole [Cowboys rookie wide receiver] Dez Bryant fiasco off the brick. It's already, like, turmoil over there, to me, that's what I think. And I think [Cowboys wide receiver] Miles Austin was kind of a sleeper last year, and everybody is going to key on him now. So they're not going to scare nobody now, and people are prepared for those dudes." Okay, calling our bookie now!
