Chris Cooley is seemingly a pretty good dude. For a few years there he was the ultimate Redskin that was the unofficial face of a franchise that struggled with quarterback issues, the death of safety Sean Taylor and a revolving door of coaches.

Madden: RG3 is a "Tebow who can pass"

John Madden thinks pretty highly of Robert Griffin III, comparing him favorably to Tim Tebow.

What Does the Big Win in the Big Easy Mean for the Redskins?

  Even though I picked the Saints to win this one I was right about something. I said, unlike many so-called experts, that the Redskins could win this game and if they won the turnover battle they'd win the game. Well guess who won the turnover battle. Here's a hint, it wasn't the Saints. With 3:18 to go in the game the Skins held a 16 point lead over the defending...

Chris Cooley met with the Redskins

According to Adam Keim if the Washington Examiner, tight end Chris Cooley met with the Redskins on Thursday and it doesn’t look like he’ll be on way back to D.C. any time soon. “It was a good conversation,” Shanahan said. “Chris is such a big part of this organization. He’s looked at his options. We talked about things that could happen throughout the year.” Cooley...

NFL upset with RGIII for covering up Nike logo

Either Adidas is paying RGIII handsomely to be their spokesman or he loves Adidas that much and I dont know anyone who would cover up a Nike symbol unless they are getting paid. The NFL however, isnt too happy with RGIII’s stunt. Seen warming up for the game against the Saints, RGIII decided that to make sure Adidas was happy and that no other brand was associated with him...

Pierre Garcon Given WWE Belt as '4th & Pain Champion,' Reveals Favorite Wrestlers Growing Up (Video)

Robert Griffin III stole the headlines following Washington's Week 1 victory over New Orleans, but Pierre Garcon helped the quarterback a great deal. Fortunately, Garcon's solid effort hasn't gone unnoticed. The wide receiver was given the first ever WWE 4th & Pain Championship Belt for helping to lead the Redskins to a win on Sunday. Garcon, who racked up 109 yards...

Redskins WR Garcon remains hobbled with sore foot

Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon remains hobbled with a sore right foot and will be a game-time decision Sunday against the St. Louis Rams. Garcon was limited in practice again Friday and is listed as questionable. He was hurt in last week's win over the New Orleans Saints, when he also had an 88-yard reception for Robert Griffin III's first career touchdown pass...

Alf, RG3 make the moves in Redskins backfield

It isn't easy playing backfield buddy to Robert Griffin III. The ball placed on your numbers for a handoff can suddenly disappear. Take the wrong angle, and suddenly you're playing bumper cars behind the line of scrimmage. The other rookie in the Washington Redskins starting lineup is sixth-round draft pick Alfred Morris, who overcame a misstep or two to have an NFL debut...

Redskins depth makes them a serious contender

For once, there is no quarterback controversy in Washington. Barring a complete meltdown, RGIII will be the starter for as long as he stays healthy. Rex Grossman is a journeyman backup and will be number two, and the inexperienced but talented rookie Kirk Cousins appears ready to challenge Grossman in the near future. This virtual certainty at that key position has allowed Shanahan...

RG3: 1st rookie QB to win Week 1 player of week

Robert Griffin III is the first rookie quarterback to win an offensive player of the week award after his debut game. The NFL announced Wednesday that Griffin is the NFC offensive player of the week for his performance in the Washington Redskins' 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints. The No. 2 overall draft pick completed 19 of 26 passes for 320 yards with two touchdowns and...

RG3 makes history with player of the week honor

One of the more compelling storylines from Week One was the impressive debut of Robert Griffin III. The Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and No. 2 overall pick led the Redskins to a surprising road upset of the favored Saints. In fact, it was more than impressive. It was historic in more than one way. On Wednesday, the NFL announced that Griffin is the NFC offensive player of the...

Mike Shanahan to Redskins, Curb your enthusiasm over Saints win

Mike Shanahan must take his team down a peg or two to prepare the Washington Redskins for the Saint Louis Rams. That's where those underpaid quality control assistants (and future NFL coaches) come in handy. They've charted all the player performances and organized them by down and distance for the coach who can now deliver this message to the team – you weren't that...

Alfred Morris Fantasy Mystery

Hidden underneath Washington’s Robert Griffith III’s spectacular opening day was another Redskins’ offensive performance that have made for a hot waiver wire pick up. Running back Alfred Morris grabbed at least a little bit of RG3’s thunder after they went on the road and beat the New Orleans Saints 40-32. Morris carried the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns. His...

Sit em, Start Em – Week Two

Sit em, Start Em – Week Two Start Em Alfred Morris – Alfred Morris should run all over the Rams run defense in week two. I expect the Redskins to be protecting a lead in this one and feeding Morris consistently in the second half. The Rams just aren’t good enough to compete and will regret not giving up on Bradford for RGIII if they don’t already. Morris is in line for 25...

RotoWire NFL Five Things

1. Only the Desperate should Invest in Morris as a Starter Redskins running back Alfred Morris seems to be generating as much discussion in the fantasy football world as anyone. As a (for now) starting running back for Mike Shanahan coming off a 28-carry, two-touchdown game in Week 1, it's easy to understand why heads are turning. Morris doesn't have much speed at all...
