RG3 should scramble away from DC

The Washington Redskins have moved heaven and draft picks to position themselves to land Robert Griffin III, the quarterback we here in Texas affectionately like to call Superman. Nor did we cape him lightly. He earned that moniker by winning at a Baylor program many felt beyond help.

2012 Redskins and Jaguars off season preview

What that means is that I was unable to get most of the teams taken care of, I mean I only got 5 teams taken care of, but I nailed the Bucs and Rams and what they were going to do, so I feel great about what I did write prior to the free agent frenzy beginning. So that means I got to get...
