DC Pro Sports Report:
Robert Griffin III is a rookie.
A good one at that.
The Washington Redskins are also well aware of his maturity and what he means to the Redskins as a team. Today, the Redskins announced that the rookie quarterback is one of three new team captains.
It makes sense.
Let's not fool ourselves. The Redskins are a 3-6 football team. They are also a team that faces 5 NFC East Division games in their final seven games. At 3-6, the Redskins are not yet out of the chase for a playoff berth. With Giants at the top of the division at 6-4, riding a two game losing streak, the playoffs are still a shot for this team.

Redskins wideout Pierre Garcon was still bothered by pain in the foot at Monday's practice, according to Rich Campbell of the Washington Times.Fantasy Spin:Our best guess is that Garcon has a date with a foot surgeon in his near future. Fantasy owners who have waited patiently for his return are likely to be disappointed.
Redskins right tackle Jammal Brown was encouraged by his first practice of the season and said he still believes he can play this year.

The Washington Redskins have been unbelievably bad against rookie quarterbacks. Historically bad. Eight-losses-in-a-row bad.
They are the only NFL team to lose eight straight against rookie QBs since at least 1950, according to STATS.
