@gifdsports After Redskins quarterback  Robert Griffin III fumbled the ball after a head-first slide attempt against the Detroit Lions on Sunday and with other similar incidents in his short career-RG3 has been adamantly practicing with his feet first. During an interview with media, RG3 told them that he worked on his sliding during training camp but it still seems to be a downfall...

Virginia CVS Advertises Tissue Sale, Tells Redskins Fans to Stock Up in Case Team Doesn’t Get Better (Photo)

Redskins fans thought for sure that their fortunes were changing in 2012, when the arrival of Robert Griffin III ushered in a 10-6 season and a playoff berth, the first winning season and playoff appearance since 2007. Just three games into the 2013 campaign, though, Washington supporters are already doubting the ability of the team and sinking into the doldrums — and the local...

RG3 reportedly wanted to get away from running the read-option

During today’s show on ESPN’s First Take,  analyst Skip Bayless mentioned that a Redskins insider claims that Robert Griffin III told the coaching staff that he wants to get away from read-option this season because he believes he can be as good of a pass as  Peyton Manning. It certainly looks like the Skins have abandoned the read-option for the most part.  If Griffin did...

Fred Smoot Blasts the Red Lobster and the Brat (aka Mike Shanahan and Robert Griffin III)

The season is not going according to plan for the Washington Redskins. After a 0-3 start the boo-birds and haters are coming out of the woodwork faster than politicians when a lobbyist  is  offering  free dinner. One of the latest to join in on the hate parade was former defensive back Fred Smoot. And he got a little creative. While making a recent radio appearance...

Dick Stockton refers to RG3 as “Robert Griffin Jr” during broadcast

You would think that a player who is as well known as Robert Griffin III wouldn’t get his name wrong during a broadcast, but Fox’s Dick Stockton called him “Robert Griffin Jr.”  Not sure why or how this happened, but a surprising mistake nonetheless.

Lions rally, drop RGIII, 'Skins

Robert Griffin III went head-first instead of sliding, so when the ball popped out it was a fumble. Aldrick Robinson had a touchdown catch in his hands, but he couldn't quite maintain possession as he hit the ground in the end zone. Thanks to the turf, the Detroit Lions ended 74 years of failure in the nation's capital. The pair of fourth-quarter bobbles sent the Lions...

Pierre Garcon Says Robert Griffin III Is ‘Not Fully Healthy,’ Thinks Knee Injury Is Still Hindering Quarterback

ASHBURN, Va. – Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says quarterback Robert Griffin III is ”a lot different” this year. Garcon said Monday that Griffin is ”not fully healthy, obviously.” Said Garcon: ”He running a little bit more, but last year’s RG3 was a lot different than this year’s RG because of his knee. It’s not surprising — we’ve been talking...

Redskins-Raiders Preview

Although at least one teammate feels Robert Griffin III has yet to return to his elite form, the Washington Redskins have reason to believe they can recover from the franchise's worst start in 12 years. Perhaps a matchup with a banged-up Oakland Raiders team is what they need to begin that turnaround. The visiting Redskins try again for their first win Sunday when they face...

Former Redskin calls RG3 a "brat", Shanahan a "red lobster"

Fred Smoot provided a harsh assessment of Robert Griffin III during a radio interview on Monday, and he also introduced us to a great new nickname for Mike Shanahan.

Robert Griffin III wants Bryce Harper to teach him how to slide

The fast times and short life of the Read Option; Understanding the Read Option:

I remember the firestorm of excitement last year when Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III were making shambles of offenses using the read option.  I told anyone that would listen that there is no way the read option would play a big role in the NFL next year.  I was laughed at during that time, but the laughing has stopped. What is the Read Option: First of...

This weekend in NFL stupid

Some seriously stupid things happened in the stupid but awesome NFL this past weekend. Let's summarize... The stupidest fumble-related rule Robert Griffin III was driving the Washington Redskins down the field in the fourth quarter when he slid awkwardly after clearly giving himself up at the end of a first-down run. He fumbled and hadn't been touched, so the turnover...

RG3 is Learning The Gift & The Curse of Celebrity & Skiptized Media

There are NFL stars and then there are STARS. It has nothing to do with what is happening on the field, but everything to do what is going on off the field.  Once your own field celebrity crosses over into mainstream celebrity the opportunities that are afforded to you are plentiful.  In life though there is always a trade off for such riches and that is what Robert Griffin III...
