This year, Nike became the official uniform supplier of the NFL. You knew that there would be some major changes coming to some uniforms, after all, look at what Nike has done with the University of Oregon. On Thursday, the Redskins rolled out their 80th anniversary uniforms designed by the Swoosh. The unis are made to resemble the attire the team wore in 1937 from the patch of the shoulder to the helmet which is painted in such a way as to resemble as if the helmets are actually made of leather.
The uniforms are designed in order to give players a better range of motion and include lightweight padding which is integrated directly into crucial “hit zones” in the base of the uniform. I haven’t made up my mind as to whether or not I like this new look for the Redskins throwback uniforms this season but as long as Nike is involved, be prepared for some radical changes to what you are used to.

Shortly after being drafted, Griffin hired an attorney and created an LLC, named Thr3escompany, according to a report by USA Today.

The crystal ball would obviously state that the future of the Washington Redskins lies somewhere in between these two extremes. The Redskins have never picked higher than they just did for RG3 at any point in the...

The person was Robert Griffin III, the phenomenon was RG3. If you used the number it sounded like a sports car. If you used the Roman numerals it looked like an event.
Either way, it was the truth.
You may have heard the news Griffin III is trademarking both of those symbols. People have been hocking RG3 stuff all over Washington, D.C. since the Redskins took the former Baylor...
There are so words for this other than awesome.
ASHBURN, Va. -- Since Mark Rypien was the Super Bowl MVP for the victorious Redskins in 1991, started 21 quarterbacks, with only Brad Johnson (1999), Mark Brunell (2005) and Todd Collins (2007) doing so in the playoffs. Mike Shanahan, who coached the Denver Broncos to consecutive Super Bowl titles in 1997 and 1998, believes that Robert Griffin III will take Washington back to...
