While Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is getting a lot of the headlines heading into Sunday's playoff game, the Washington Redskins' defenders have no question who is the real newsmaker on the Seattle offense.
As a wideout, Santana Moss wants Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III to throw the ball as much as possible, of course, preferably in his direction.
A slight smile finally brightened Jim Haslett's hardened countenance after midnight Monday morning. His wife, Beth, and daughter, Kelsey, walked alongside him up the ramp that leads from the Washington Redskins' locker room out of FedEx Field.
Barry Cofield walked into the Washington Redskins' locker room and was a little surprised to see cornerback Cedric Griffin, back after a four-game suspension.
When the final seconds ticked off the clock Sunday night and the Washington Redskins had vanquished their rival to complete one of the greatest turnarounds in NFL history, Reed Doughty sprinted onto the field. He jumped and pumped his fist and thrust his helmet into the air.
Barry Cofield stood near one corner of the victorious Washington Redskins' locker room shortly after midnight Monday morning and served a few helpings of perspective.

"All the work we put in over OTAs and during the summer and during training camp, it helps," Cofield said. "It's still going to come down to execution on game day. I don't want to sit here and act like it's going to be second nature for us and we're going to go out there and be completely comfortable.

"It's going to be a real physical game," Cofield said. "I love it."
