‘Endless Possibilities’: The Mr. Irrelevant RGIII Interview
Meeting Robert Griffin III came as a surprise, and when he walked in the room the surprise continued. Griffin is not alarmingly big like many football players, but he does exude a palpable charisma. Throughout our interview, I found myself struck by his calm demeanor and almost politician-level of preparedness for any question I asked.

Trent Williams says he's scared straight - ESPN
"Everybody knows the great things he can do," Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said after a minicamp practice earlier this month. "But no one player makes the offense. It takes all 11, and if we're not doing our job, he won't do as well. But as long as we're doing our job and surrounding him with good examples of how to be a pro, he could be one of the best to ever do this."

The Redskins Blog | Santana Moss: ‘Skins ‘Hidden Treasure?’
He’s caught 488 passes for 6,726 yards and 37 touchdowns in his seven-year career with the Washington Redskins, but some believe veteran receiver Santana Moss could still slip under the radar and have a big year in 2012.

The 53: One less job at wide receiver - Rich Tandler's Real Redskins
The Redskins will report to training camp on July 25. Over the next five weeks they will undergo the process of cutting their 90-man roster down to 53. Which players will get those coveted spots and which will join the ranks of the unemployed? Over the next couple of weeks we’ll go through position by position and try to predict what decisions Mike Shanahan and company will make.

Griffin Just Has ‘It’ | Hog Blogs
Did you catch the nice blog on about Robert Griffin III shooting a Subway commercial in Texas? I joke, but I’m just not really sure why the piece led with that tidbit, when the title and crux of an otherwise good piece, is that a bunch of Redskins are heading down to Texas for a friendly game of pass and catch with their rookie quarterback.

The Redskins Blog | 10 For 80: Barry Wilburn
Wilburn — who was selected in the eighth round (219th overall) in the 1985 NFL Draft — turned out to be a steal for the Redskins. The product of Memphis, Tenn., Wilburn – who played collegiately at Ole Miss — was voted first-team All-Pro in the Redskins’ 1987 Super Bowl championship campaign. That season, Wilburn had a league-leading nine interceptions.

The Redskins Blog | 10 For 80: Richie Petitbon
It probably would come as no surprise that Petitbon’s specialty was defense in his own playing days. He was named to the Pro Bowl four times as a safety with the Chicago Bears, Los Angeles Rams and the Redskins, and in his 14-year playing career, Petitbon notched 48 interceptions for 801 return yards and three touchdowns.

That is, as you likely know by now, Shanahan's theory. Barring the presence of a special, Terrell Davis-type back, he's content to use his running backs as interchangeable because he thinks the zone-blocking scheme will help make them into stars. He preaches this to his offensive linemen, running through lists of backs who have had big years in his system. And the fact that Roy Helu, Ryan Torain and Evan Royster were all able to post 100-yard games in 2011 after starter Tim Hightower got hurt helps make his point.

RGIII talks about relationship with Shanahan
When rookie quarterback Robert Griffin talks about his relationship with Coach Mike Shanahan, Redskin fans want to hear it.

Yeah, we know you know that Robert Griffin III gets it. And we also know that you don’t get tired of reading about more evidence of that fact. So here is some more on the subject.

Yes, still. If you haven’t watched NFC East games the last few seasons you might have forgotten about him with all the Redskins woes. But, this 14-year veteran just keeps cranking out excellent seasons. In fact, one could argue that he has saved the best for last. Fletcher has been an eleven-time Pro Bowl alternate, but didn’t make the team until 2009. He made it again in 2010 and 2011, leading the league in total tackles in ’11.

This is the greatest innovation since Sunday Night Football, which in turn was the greatest innovation since football. (Thursday Night Football still kind of sucks.)
