Jon Gruden raves about RGIII
“I’m seeing an offense that I’ve never seen before in pro football,” he said on ESPN Radio’s Mikes program. “This is much like RGIII at Baylor.

Need to Know: Redskins lag in Pro Bowl voting - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
The NFL released the top five vote getters at each position yesterday and there are few Redskins to be found.

That won’t change. They’ll usually have a wrinkle in there, and when we see it, it’s about adjusting on the fly.”

Redskins notebook: injury update, transactions |
Robert Griffin III on if he can tell what Monday’s game means to the veteran players who haven’t played a meaningful December game since 2008: “You can definitely sense it. Late in the game against the Cowboys, [linebacker] London [Fletcher] came up and talked to me during the game, which he usually never talks to me during the game. I think he’s in his own world as well. You can feel the excitement they have about what we have brewing here. You want to do it for them. When I was in college, I wanted to do it for the seniors when I was a freshman and now that I’m a rookie, you want to do it for those vets.”
