Robert Griffin III: I’d love to pick Tom Brady’s brain

Robert Griffin III and Tom Brady are on opposite ends of the quarterback spectrum. One is young, athletic with everything to prove while the other is older, not-so-athletic and, three Super Bowl titles later, has little left to prove. When the Redskins and Patriots meet in next week’s joint practices, Griffin hopes to absorb some of Brady’s invaluable knowledge — as much as...

After Mike Shanahan soap opera, vanilla is Washington’s favorite flavor

Greetings from Camp No Trauma-No Drama, where the head coach and the quarterback don’t verbally spar between two-a-days, everyone has thus far escaped serious injury, a diva of a Philadelphia wide receiver has become an exemplary Washington teammate and no one has failed a drug test.

Washington Redskins are taking their propaganda to another level

The whole Redskins name controversy has taken way too much of the team’s spotlight this offseason. Instead of talking about a healthy Robert Griffin III, the addition of DeSean Jackson or the emergence of young players, we’ve been stuck in the middle of a discrimination battle that has no end in sight. Now, honestly, I don’t care which side of rope you stand on. This dispute...

Robert Griffin III is bringing the zone-read back to the Washington Redskins

Two years ago, the zone-read was the most exciting play in the league. The NFL’s stud, young quarterbacks, Robert Griffin III, Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton, were electrifying the league with what everyone believed to be the future of football. Then, last year, that all changed. RGIII, the most explosive of them all, was hampered by his knee injury, and the rest...

Redskins QB Robert Griffin is ready for zone-read option plays, just not too many

During a portion of the 11-on-11 action in Wednesday’s practice for the Washington Redskins, 2012 Robert Griffin III made an appearance. The quarterback took the snap and appeared to execute a handoff but called his own number instead. He then darted through an opening along the line. It looked very much like his 76-yard touchdown run against the Minnesota Vikings two years ago...

Is the pressure getting to Robert Griffin III?

The amount of pressure on Robert Griffin III to succeed this year will either suffocate him or propel him into superstardom. After one day of training camp it looked as if he was suffocating, but now, almost a week later, RGIII is set to fly. On that first day of training camp, as rain drenched the field, RGIII’s performance was marked by inconsistent and inaccurate passes, especially...
