Kirk Cousins may not be the most mobile quarterback in the NFL but it's time for him to use his feet and run. Run, Kirk; run all the way out of Washington, as far as you can from the dysfunctional, inept front office that's underestimated you for four seasons and perpetually keeps the Redskins a laughingstock both on and off the field.

Here's the first footage of a 2017 F1 car on track

The Sauber F1 Team is the first to release footage of its F1 car on track.

Could Nick Saban take any Power 5 team to a national championship?
