Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan is nothing short of amazed at how Robert Griffin III is recovering from his knee surgery performed on January 9th.
“He’s over at the facility, rehabbing all of the time," Shanahan told the NFL Network. "He’ll set a record for coming back because that’s how hard he works.”
“He is ahead, but there’s a process. It takes time. Robert will do it the right way and we’ll find out in July exactly where he’s at,” Shanahan said. “He will not come back until he’s 100 percent."
Shanahan also touched on utilizing Griffin in the read-option, which some think exposes him too much to injury.
"When most people take a look and they take a look at Robert, they’re thinking, ‘Oh, you can’t run the option,’” he said. “People don’t realize that the option protects the quarterback. The thing I have to get with Robert is when to slide, when not to take a hit. These quarterbacks are so competitive but they don’t realize sometimes how valuable they are to your franchise.”

Robert Griffin III’s injured right knee is probably the most talked about reconstructed knee in the history of sports. It seems as if each week, we have a new prognosis that has very little to do with medical evidence, just opinions. The Washington Redskins PR machine has been in full gear ever since RGIII went down with tears to his ACL and LCL in the team’s playoff game...

I am not a fan of the Washington Redskins or owner Daniel Snyder, but I have to applaud his resolve. For several years now, the Redskins franchise has been under attack by groups demanding that the club change the team name. It now appears that the politically correct police have come back for another round while assailing Snyder and forcing him to change the name of the team, he...
Seeing as Charles Woodson has no takers right now, and with the thought that he still has a few years left in the tank, should the Redskins kick the tires on him and put him at free safety? Woodson hasn’t garnered much attention in free agency, which to me is surprising. Maybe Woodson’s asking price is too much but that hasn’t been reported. “For the right price,” the Redskins...
