Well, they're a little similar in my mind in the sense that one DC team, despite making the playoffs, decided not to push their franchise player; while the other went for it right away.

RGIII clearly wasn't 100% and the 'Skins had no problem pushing him to the absolute limit. On the other hand, the Nationals took their time with Strasburg, kept him healthy and kept him fresh.

Football and baseball are apples and oranges, but I think this comparison isn't too far-fetched. At least in my mind.
