If he didn't know that before, former Washington Redskins quarterback Doug Williams understands that all too well now. Williams was let go by the university two games into the 2013 season. From the way he describes the actual firing, it sounds like it was the easiest dismissal ever: "There wasn't a lot of conversation. I told him 'OK' and I was gone," Williams said. So ends his second tenure with his alma mater. Williams had the distinction of taking over for a legend, longtime head coach Eddie Robinson, his first time with the team back in 1997.

RG3: NFL had a problem with my knee brace

After last night’s loss to the Eagles,  Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters that the NFL had a problem with his knee brace.  If you noticed,  he started the game with the brace on the outside of his uniform and then moved it underneath so he could cover it with his sock. “Everybody in the league kept calling down to our sideline saying that I didn’t cover...
