And you may find yourself tossed out of Carolina.

And you may find yourself in another part of the NFC East.

And you may find yourself behind Daniel Jones and picked at No. 15.

And you may ask yourself, "Well... how did they get here?"

Letting the players go by, let Dave Gettleman make the decisions. 

Yes, the Washington Redskins had landed cornerback Josh Norman, safety Landon Collins, and quarterback Dwayne Haskins thanks to the decisions of the current general manager of the New York Giants: Gettleman exiled Norman from Carolina when he was GM of the Panthers, allowed Collins to walk in New York, and selected Jones with the No. 6 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft instead of Haskins.

When asked who was responsible for this on the Rich Eisen Show, Norman laughed at Gettleman's expense.

"If we have an alliance with that guy," Norman said. "I think we need to put him on salary."

"They need to protect Dave Gettleman at all costs up in New York, for sure. Protect that man at all costs, because he's winning for us," Norman said. 

All the talking heads around the NFL believe Gettleman has done a terrible job these past few years, so that is good news for the Redskins and the rest of the NFC East.
