Ed Reed's footprint in NFL history is undeniable, considered perhaps the best safety to play the game.
Pierre Garcon has faced the same questions for three months. He ran out of ways to explain his disappointment at missing six games this season. Every twinge and ache in his sprained right foot is of interest to media eager to know more about his status. This is not how he envisioned his first season as the Washington Redskins' top receiver.
Late on the afternoon of Oct. 21, Robert Griffin III wheeled his suitcase from one end of MetLife Stadium's home sideline to the other, down the tunnel and out to the Washington Redskins' bus. He left in his wake an air of disappointment.
Ankles aren't supposed to bend the way Santana Moss contorted his left foot in the end zone on Thursday. And if they do, there's usually some type of tear and pain involved.
Robert Griffin III was named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. The Washington Redskins' quarterback has been given that honor twice in a season, also winning it for his effort in Week 1.
You usually can find the Washington Redskins' offensive linemen sitting together on the benches outside the back door of Redskins Park before practice each afternoon. An offensive line is the sum of its parts, you know. Cohesion is essential to their success, so these guys stick together. They often walk down to the practice field as a unit, and this season they can carry themselves with a newfound pride.
Excitement and hype lived up to, check. Prolific statistics for a rookie quarterback, check. Football sense belying limited experience, check. Robert Griffin III has been everything the Washington Redskins hoped for.
Washington Redskins receiver Aldrick Robinson will get more playing time beginning with this Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, coach Mike Shanahan said this week. Robinson injects some speed into an offense that is without No. 1 'X' receiver Pierre Garcon and athletic tight end Fred Davis because of injuries.
We knew there would be days like this for Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. Gray days. Rainy days. Days when the opposition ran around in throwback uniforms that made them look like bumblebees. Even days when they were victimized by a running back named Rainey.
