Instead of adding to their Snickers or Butterfinger count, the Leesburg, Va. youth walked away from the Griffin residence with fresh new socks on Wednesday night.
Would you expect anything less...
Robert Griffin III is a great athlete, and when you have a great athlete at quarterback, you have a tendency as coach to try to do too much with him. Such was the case Sunday in Pittsburgh, when Mike Shanahan became a genius, and had Griffin III go out for a pass. Griffin III tried [...]

In an attempt to get something going against the Pittsburgh Steelers offensively on Sunday, Mike Shanahan decided it would be a good idea to try a little trickery with Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins called for a play that appeared to be a reverse to receiver Josh Morgan, but instead Morgan became the quarterback and Griffin the receiver. And RG3 got lit up by Steelers...

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media that he feels like an idiot for having quarterback Robert Griffin III play quarterback after he took quite a hit down field.

All the hype coming into this one was about the Redskins sensational rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III (and the Steelers 1934 throwback uniforms). Last week I wrote about Dick LeBeau and what the Steelers might do to slow him and the Redskins offense down. Mission accomplished. No doubt RGIII was hurt by drops from his receivers, but...
(Updates. With AP Photos.) By JOSEPH WHITE AP Sports Writer Logan Paulsen played both tight end and defensive end at Chaminade College Preparatory School in Northridge, Calif. He even set a school record with 24 sacks in his junior season.

In a matchup featuring the last two Heisman Trophy winners, Newton and the visiting Carolina Panthers try to snap a five-game losing streak Sunday as they square...
