Redskins OTAs, June 6: Notes and observations | WashingtonExaminer.com
1. Robert Griffin III says "without a doubt" the start of training camp is a realistic goal for his return. He did walk with a slight limp at one point Thursday. 2. Roy Helu returned to work Wednesday after missing the first two weeks with the lingering effects of his turf toe. Helu said his goal isn’t just to stay healthy. "I’m not focused on staying healthy per se, but just on competing the best I can do." Helu’s main focus: "Job security," he said. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said of Helu, "He looked good in practice. Anytime you have a guy that weighs 225 pounds and he’s under that 4.5 in the 40 and has receiving skills and the opportunity to make a big play. It’s good to have him back."

"His approach is focused on football," Grossman said Thursday. "I don’t see any distraction taking him away from what his job is, and that’s the bottom line. All the other stuff is stuff. Do your job right, which he did — Rookie of the Year — who else cares? Win the Super Bowl, have goals, accomplish your goals. All the other stuff is just for talk."

Fletcher makes good on interception vow to Cousins
"We threw a touchdown pass on him in seven-on-seven yesterday where he had the guy covered pretty well but it was still completed," Cousins said after the practice at Redskins Park. "He was very frustrated about that. He walked by me today in the locker room just before we came out here and he goes, ‘I’m gonna pick you off today.’ And I shook my head. I go, ‘All right. You know, all right.’ And sure enough, he picks me off. Obviously he knows what he’s doing. Whether or not he was lucky or he actually knew what was going to happen, the fact of the matter is he did pick me off."
Are Redskins' secondary additions enough? - NFC East Blog - ESPN
Indeed, the Redskins are banking on the idea that the returns from injury of players like Brian Orakpo, Adam Carriker and Brandon Meriweather will improve the defense. They're also hoping Griffin completes a full recovery from offseason knee surgery and can play as well as he did as a rookie. And if those things happen, the Redskins have reason to believe that the same basic group that went 10-6 and won the NFC East last year can win it again in 2013.

Film Sessions: Santana Moss 2012 All Regular Season Targets and Catches
Watching Santana Moss play in 2012, I had two recurring thoughts, over and over again. 1.) I wish they'd get Santana Moss the ball more, since he seems hungrier and more energetic then he's been in years. AND 2.) Can you imagine how great Santana Moss could've been if Robert Griffin III had been his quarterback for his entire career.
