Chris Cooley says RG3 can't do it alone for Redskins -
"Yes, the idea of an off-schedule play is always a key in the NFL," Cooley said. "But that's something that frustrates a lot of coaches and will sometimes frustrate players. You'll scheme this whole game and then all a sudden the quarterback or someone makes an off-schedule play that shouldn't happen. Robert's the kind of guy that can do those things. But for us to be a team that consistently wins, we have to have him doing the things we want him to do."'

Roger Goodell making post-career transition for players a priority - Peter King -
EMIGRANT, Mont. -- Now there's a dateline I never thought I'd use: Emigrant, Mont.
