NFL Trade Rumors:
Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins are “seriously considering” opening up negotiations with Mike Shanahan regarding a contract extension.
Shanahan is under contract through the 2014 season, but the team is reportedly weighing whether or not to address his future this offseason, or put it off until next year. Maske’s sources seem to think that a deal will not come until after they’ve finished the 2012 season.
Washington just won their first division title since 1999 and wasn’t as though anyone believed that they had a shot of doing so. The Redskins will take on the Seattle Seahawks this weekend for an opportunity to play in the division round of the playoffs.

I've been a Redskins for most of my 37 years on Earth. I started rooting for them as a 7 year old and haven't stopped.

The Redskins and Seahawks have reinvinted what it means to be a smash-mouth team to great success, while the Bengals and Texans are taking a more traditional approach.
LANDOVER, Md. -- "R-G-3!" was all Redskins fans needed to chant when they wanted to express their love for Robert Griffin III. For the lesser-known rookie, they opted for his whole name: "Al-fred Mor-ris!"
At my fantasy drafts back in August and September, whenever someone was hemming and hawing over who to pick, I often rather arrogantly shouted out “Alfred Morris is still available.” I generally was rewarded for my trash talk with some confusion, a couple of guffaws (unless it was the seventh or eighth time I brought up his name) or perhaps some ridicule.
