 The Redskins are apparently taking a page out of Steeler fans' playbook.

C'mon, Redskin Nation.

We know the NFL is a copy-cat league. But this is going waaaaaay too far.

A Rally Rag?

Seriously?

The Washington Redskins plan to give away 50,000 "Rally Rags" to fans before Sunday night's home game against the Dallas Cowboys. This comes just one game after Steeler Nation invaded FedEx Field with its "Terrible Towels" and made quite the impression during Pittsburgh's 23-6 victory on "Monday Night Football."

Now the Redskins are trying to create a home-field environment Sunday that's based on Pittsburgh's long-standing tradition.

That's pretty weak and laughable at the same time.

The AFC North version of the Blog Network plans to call NFC East counterpart, Matt Mosley, very soon, because we demand an explanation! Also feel free to visit Mosley's stellar blog and let him and Redskins fans know that the AFC North won't stand for being ripped off.

The NFC Beast may be the best division in football, but it's obviously the NFC Least when it comes to originality.
