There was no need for Redskins fans to stick around for the second half on Sunday.

It was snowing. It was cold. And the Redskins were absolutely, positively horrible.

So at the start of the second half, with the Chiefs leading 38-7, CBS showed a wide shot of the stadium. And it was shockingly empty.

Either that, or there were a ton of people dressed up as red and yellow seats.

The photo, posted by Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post's D.C. Sports Bog, has to send quite a message to owner Daniel Snyder that the fans are fed up with the team, which came into the game 3-9 and then totally gave up in a messy first half against the Chiefs.

Shutdown Corner's Jay Busbee was at the game (sorry Jay) and took these photos with about 12 minutes left in the third quarter:

The Redskins are miserable this year, and gave the team's fans every reason to head for the exits after the first half on Sunday. So they did.
