The Last Angry Fan:
She’s a sweet ride.
Redskins running back Alfred Morris isn’t about to let his newfound success go to his head. As a rookie his base salary of $390,000 is peanuts compared to the majority of his millionaire teammates, but it’s still a decent enough yearly wage that Morris could afford himself an expensive car like the Porsches, Cadillacs, BMWs and tricked-out SUVs he sees on a daily basis at the team’s practice facility.
But not Morris, who prefers his silver 1991 Mazda 626, a car he affectionately calls “his Bentley.”
Morris acquired his ride during his junior year at Florida Atlantic University, and he has no plans to give up his ’91 Mazda anytime soon, despite the daily razzing he probably receives from his fellow Skins teammates. The vehicle holds too much sentimental value for the rookie to get rid of it for a pricier car, and he feels that having a less-than-fancy automobile will help keep him grounded as his NFL success continues to rise.

“It has so...
BEST OF MAXIM
After sitting down with Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen, free agent tight end Chris Cooley gets the feeling that the only way he might re-sign with the Redskins is if someone gets hurt and they need him.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Cooley said in a telephone interview, via The Washington Post. “I want to play here, but I don’t know if anything...
Redskins tight end Fred Davis benefitted from Pierre Garcon's absence in Week 3, catching seven passes for 90 yards.Fantasy Spin:Davis had failed to develop chemistry with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III in the first two weeks, catching only four passes for 52 yards. He's unlikely to have many weeks like Week 3 once Garcon returns.
Mike Shannahan is certainly known for his bag of tricks when it comes to offense, especially during his short time in Washington with the Redskins. He certainly could not ask for a better quarterback to be able to direct that offense than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner out of Baylor University in Robert Griffin, III. Through three games this season, Griffin has shown that he...
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon is listed as doubtful against the Cincinnati Bengals with a foot injury. With Garcon out, the Redskins will turn to a rotation of Leonard Hankerson, Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and Aldrick Robinson. Garcon, 26, had a big opening week, hauling four passes for 109 yards and a touchdown, including an 88-yard strike from Robert Griffin...
Let me get this straight - you are threatening Josh Morgan with death because he lost his cool and threw a football? Way to lead by example.
@zacboyer Twitter might have shut it down. Redskins reported accounts to the police.

This is just a straight repost, with credit to Terez for drawing the comparison… I always knew that Robert Griffin had a unique look. He’s got a strong sense of style, a love of socks, and he’s a pretty unique guy. But he’s reminded me of someone…
The Washington Redskins come into this game hurting. They lost two of their top defensive stars for the season in Brian Orakpo and Adam Carriker, and they relinquished a 15-point lead in their Week 2 matchup with the St. Louis Rams to lose on the road, 31-28.
What direction this team is headed in is still hard to gauge. The defense has put on a Jekyll-and-Hyde performance in each...
So far this season the Redkins have won a game we didn’t expect them to win and lost a game we didn’t expect them to lose, which is very Redskins. The difference of course is that Robert Griffin III was our quarterback in both games, and he was spectacular. May he be so again, no matter what occurs.
Wizards point guard John Wall and rapper Wale checked out the Redskins vs. Bengals today. Redskins loss 38-31. Rookie QB Robert Griffin III threw one touchdown but, threw an incomplete pass on a third-and-50 on the game’s last play. He ended the day with 221 yards, 34 attempts and 21 completions for you fantasy game [...]
Fail to the Redskins! Here are my five keys to a Cincy win in the Capitol this Sunday:
1. Score Early/Get Ahead: The Bengals are on the road for the Redskins home opener. FedEx field is huge, and usually sold out. They will be loud and rocking as they get their highly-anticipated first look at RGIII. The Bengals would do well to get up on the skins by a touchdown...
NFL Fines Redskins And Rams Players -
Redskins WR Josh Morgan had the costliest mental mistake of Sunday’s game in St. Louis, when his 15-yard penalty for throwing the ball at Rams CB Cortland Finnegan pushed Washington out of range for a game-tying field goal. But Morgan didn’t have the costliest fine to arise from that game. Morgan was fined $7,875 for throwing the ball at...
Rookie sensation Robert Griffin III quipped after a loss to the Rams that he believed the Rams were guilty of dirty play. Griffin, after only his second game, was professional in his answer. Griffin vetted that he probably wasn’t in a position to accurately criticize because of his limited time in the league. Still, [...]
