I apologize, too.

Not that another apology will help the Redskins.

There is just no helping them.

Dan Snyder issues an apology one day, Clinton Portis the next.

That also was Portis throwing the team’s best downfield block of the season, this one on behalf of Snyder, the little owner who could not.

The team’s 2-5 record is on the players, Portis said, not the owner.

Portis need not worry.

There is plenty of criticism to cover everyone, from the owner to the players to the sign police.

Teams that stick together apparently apologize together, for what it is worth during this excruciating season.

It is not worth much in the view of Gilbert K. Chesterton, a noted English writer.

“A stiff apology is a second insult,” he said. “The injured party does not want to be compensated because he has been wronged; he wants to be healed because he has been hurt.”

The fans of this wreck of a franchise are hurting in the worst way.

If they could, they would fire the owner.

Vinny Cerrato would be next on their hit list.

Alas, signs attesting to that have been banned inside the bowl by the Beltway.
