Found September 26, 2013 on Diehardsport:
You would think that a player who is as well knwon as Robert Griffin III wouldn’t get his name wrong during a broadcast, but FOX’s Dick Stockton called him “Robert Griffin Jr.” Not sure why or how that happened but a surprising mistake nonetheless.

Virginia CVS Advertises Tissue Sale, Tells Redskins Fans to Stock Up in Case Team Doesn’t Get Better (Photo)

Redskins fans thought for sure that their fortunes were changing in 2012, when the arrival of Robert Griffin III ushered in a 10-6 season and a playoff berth, the first winning season and playoff appearance since 2007. Just three games into the 2013 campaign, though, Washington supporters are already doubting the ability of the team and sinking into the doldrums — and the local...

Robert Griffin III wants Bryce Harper to teach him how to slide

Do or die for the Washington Redskins vs. Oakland

The Redskins need their defense to step up, like it has done in the past.(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast) Well, folks, this is it. All of the optimism spouted from some writer’s mouth means nothing if the Washington Redskins are unable to get a victory over the Oakland Raiders in week 4. Without a win, they drop to 0-4, and one one team in NFL history has made the playoffs after...

Kyle Shanahan: Defenses have caught up to the read-option

Redskins-Raiders Preview

Although at least one teammate feels Robert Griffin III has yet to return to his elite form, the Washington Redskins have reason to believe they can recover from the franchise's worst start in 12 years. Perhaps a matchup with a banged-up Oakland Raiders team is what they need to begin that turnaround. The visiting Redskins try again for their first win Sunday when they face...

Washington Redskins: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#24)

Last week: 21 (-3) Their defense continues to make it near impossible for them to win games and that’s not something that’s going to change going forward. They’re too young and don’t have another talent. Unfortunately, they won’t get their pick this year, what will probably be a top-10 pick, to fix their defense, but I don’t think they’d trade Robert Griffin and the...

It's been more than a half-century since an NFL team was as easy to move the ball against as the 2013 Washington Redskins, and defensive lineman Kedric Golston was not about to mince words. ''It is a terrible start,'' Golston said Thursday. ''The execution has not been where anybody has wanted. I don't think it's an effort issue. I don't...

Redskins Preparing for two Raiders QBs With Pryor’s Status Unknown

It is still very much a mystery which Oakland Raiders quarterback the Washington Redskins will face this coming Sunday. Will it be the young Terrelle Pryor who last Monday night sustained a concussion against the Denver Broncos or will it be Matt Flynn, the guy who the Raiders traded for in the off-season? Pryor has [...]

The fast times and short life of the Read Option; Understanding the Read Option:

I remember the firestorm of excitement last year when Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III were making shambles of offenses using the read option.  I told anyone that would listen that there is no way the read option would play a big role in the NFL next year.  I was laughed at during that time, but the laughing has stopped. What is the Read Option: First of...
