This unidentified grocery store's attempt to make a Washington Redskins cake was a good effort, except for one small detail.
Unfortunately, it's the most critical detail of the cake: they misspelled the team name. Sorry, it's not spelled "Reskins".
Since the cake apparently hasn't been sold yet, maybe it can still be fixed. Or, maybe the...

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn’t
included on the team’s injury report this week and linebacker London Fletcher
is probable to play today against the Seattle Seahawks, but offensive lineman
Kory Lichtensteiger is questionable to play with an ankle injury.
Fletcher missed practice on Wednesday and again on Friday as
he continues to be hampered by his...
According to the Washington Post, Redskins linebacker London Fletcher didn’t sound very certain that he would be back next season.Fletcher, 37, is the third-oldest player in the NFL, but continues to play well. He remains under contract after re-signing with Washington last spring. However, he addressed the entire Redskins team in the locker room, and some of his teammates wondered...
RG3 is on his way to have his knee examined after an MRI done last night couldn’t conclusively determine if he has re-torn his ACL.
He is going to get checked out by Dr. James Andrews.
The Redskins fear that he has torn his ACL and PCL. If that is the case the recovery time is nine to 12 months and would put his 2013 season in jeopardy.
Many Washington Redskins fans are screaming “Bloody Murder” that the team’s management and coaching staff failed to properly protect their quarterback and franchise player, RGIII, from further injury in the Skins’ playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night. Going into the game it was clear that RG3′s knee was banged up, but I am unaware of any other NFL player...
During the final minutes of the Redskins loss to the Seahawks on Sunday, RG3 was injured in a horrific manner. The extent of the injury isn’t known yet, but we are very positive that knees aren’t supposed to bend like they do below.

At some point, an injured player, even a star like Robert Griffin III, is too hampered to help a team. Deciding when is enough is the biggest issue.
Redskins coach Mike Shanahan has come under fire in the wake of Griffin reinjuring his right knee in Sunday's 24-14 wild-card loss to Seattle. The criticism has ranged from whether Shanahan cared enough for his sensational rookie...
On a botched snap, Redskins starting quarterback Robert Griffin III twisted his right knee, collapsing to the ground as the Seahawks recovered the ensuing fumble. Griffin had been favoring the knee since the first quarter, but Mike Shanahan elected to keep him in the game.
FedEx Field erupted into chants of "RG III" as the training staff tended to him. Griffin walked...
Robert Griffin III knows he's getting criticized for playing
hurt in the Washington Redskins' playoff loss.
Going to be a lot of discussion should he have been in the game.
Robert Griffin III RG3 Hurts Knee
THE FIFTH QUARTER
IT WAS OVER WHEN... Trailing 21-14 and facing second down and 22 yards to go from their own 11 yard line, after a 12-yard sack by Seattle DE Bruce Irvin, Redskins center Will Montgomery skipped a bad snap back to ailing QB Robert Griffin III. As Griffin stumbled to recover the loose ball, Griffin's knee buckled and he collapsed to the field in agony...
Mike Shanahan won't go as far as Pete Carroll did with his comments, but he agrees the grass isn't always greener at the Washington Redskins stadium, the Associated Press reports. "You'd like a perfect field, and it wasn't a perfect field, we all know that," Redskins coach Shanahan said.
Shanahan said putting down a new sod in midseason might not have...
When players from the Seahawks and Redskins met at mid-field following their NFC playoff game, it was only a matter of time before Richard Sherman and Trent Williams found each other.
The result was so talking and then attempted punch/shove by Williams to the face of Sherman. As players were seperated the Seattle corner took a chance to wave.
Seattle won the game 24-14 and will play...
