It recently came to my attention that Redskins rookie linebacker Ryan Kerrigan was featured on the NFL Network’s show “Sound FX,” which features microphone’d players and whatever they have to say over the course of a game.
The microphone in his helmet was used to catch his interactions between teammates, coaches and opponents during the Redskins-Vikings game on Christmas...
Shortly before Christmas, I had the opportunity to talk football with Australian Broadcasting Corporation correspondent Craig McMurtrie and his cameraman Louie Eroglu at Redskins Park.

A years-long effort to cancel six Washington Redskins' federal trademarks is scheduled for trial next month before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, according to board documents. The petition by five Native Americans, Blackhorse vs. Pro-Football, Inc., asserts the team's name and logo are offensive. ...
Power rankings are designed to be equivalent to an approximate rankings of NFL teams, No. 1-32. What it actually turns into is an over-hyped barometer that shamelessly follows winning and losing streaks, and has no ability to predict future results.
