Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III said that he’s becoming more comfortable with the Washington Redskins offense as time goes on.
What’s really encouraging is that Griffin is developing some good chemistry with his new teammates and is building a strong relationship with head coach Mike Shanahan.
“I definitely see a tremendous improvement, just with the team chemistry,” Griffin said. “We’ve got a couple new pieces — including myself, Pierre (Garcon), Josh (Morgan) — and we all needed to show the guys that were already Redskins that the new Redskins can help them win, and that’s helped everybody go out here and compete every day.”

Robert Griffin III is impressing his teammates in workouts and has earned a new nickname. Will he be able to live up to the billing?
Losing out on the RG3 sweepstakes was enough of a smack to the face for Browns fans. But now he is working out with the ‘Skins and reports of his performance are pretty good, it could hit home just a little bit more. 1 If glowing reports weren’t enough, there’s this little anecdote coming out of Washington during OTAs.

Andrew Luck was ranked fourth from April 1-May 28 and fourth in the month of May.
The Washington Redskins may not know how RG3 will play on...
I missed this when the Washington Post published it last year, so thankfully Burgundy Blog dug up Dan Snyder’s old yearbook photo:
WaPo’s caption on the photo reads:
“A young Snyder appears in a school yearbook. He was an unremarkable student with little interest in school, a notably limited attention span and few close friends.”
What’s left unsaid is that those “few...
The Redskins signed fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins, the 102nd overall selection in the 2012 draft. Cousins, the all-time wins leader at Michigan State, impressed the Redskins at the Senior Bowl, when coaches Mike and Kyle Shanahan were opposing Cousins' North team. When Cousins was on the board in the fourth round -- many teams graded him as a second-round pick -- Mike Shanahan...

The Vikings brought in linebacker Rocky McIntosh for a visit earlier this offseason, but his value around the league has dropped. Just five years ago, he was being considered in a trade for a multiple Pro Bowler that could have changed the dynamic in the NFC North. Plus, changes in roster rules aren’t done yet, Jake Long could be heading into extension talks, and much more insight...
