As an addendum to my previous note about the Redskins' relatively small crowd on Sunday, let me also note this:
The Redskins are 2-5 at home this season. That means they will finish without a winning home record for the third straight season. That's only happened three times in 40 years: from 1961-1963, from 1993-1995, and from 2008-2010. This is, clearly, the first time the Redskins have so suffered at FedEx Field.
Going back through the standings, that's hardly even the worst of it. The worst is this: in my lifetime, the Redskins have never had less of a home-field advantage than they do right now.
From 1969 to 1992, the Redskins never finished with a losing record at home. Never. Like, not once. In 24 seasons.
In the next decade -- from 1993 to 2002 -- the Redskins finished with a losing record at home twice.
And in the next eight seasons -- from 2003 to the present -- the Redskins will now have finished with a losing record at home five times. Overall, they're 29-34 at home in that span. Not dominant.
