Heisman Preview: Who will win using the modern formula?

In the age BJFF (before Johnny Manziel), the rules governing who could -- and who couldn't -- win the Heisman Trophy were concrete.

Robert Griffin III is Okay with the ‘Doubters’

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III jumped on to the national scene for a previously downtrodden Baylor Bears football program back in 2011.

Camp Preview: Is Jordan Reed already an elite tight end?

There is, justifiably, a lot of excitement heading into this season over the Redskins’ offense. Robert Griffin III is healthy, Mike Shanahan has finally been given the boot and DeSean Jackson is looking to bring a dynamic to the passing game that’s been missing for years.
