In a city where a sitting president actually debated the meaning of the while under oath, and where people study every inflection and nuance of every syllable, Washington Redskins quarterback Patrick Ramsey and coach Joe Gibbs turned very political last week. Ramsey denied, sort of, a report by ESPN's Chris Mortensen that he had asked to be traded following his Monday demotion from the starting lineup. Gibbs followed up by insisting Ramsey never made a trade request. But take this to the bank, courtesy of a pretty unimpeachable source: Ramsey, upset at being yanked after less than one half of football, and replaced by Mark Brunell, asked to be traded.
