QB Coach Terry Shea: Robert Griffin III is ready

“He looked 100 percent healthy. I  didn’t let up on him and, boy, he kept coming — and he reminded me of the old Robert Griffin that I knew coming out of Baylor for those eight-10 weeks we worked together in 2012.

“He could have very easily lost it given the year he had. I put him through a gantlet of drills. And Robert made all the throws, showing great skills. It sure appeared to me that he took that next step as a pocket passer.

Kevin Durant helped lure DeSean Jackson to Redskins

Colt McCoy is a joke

News that the Washington Redskins inked QB Colt McCoy to a deal reminds me of a joke I heard somewhere along the way. Colt McCoy heard screams for help as he was walking along a lake shore in Texas. He saw a woman and two little babies in a sinking boat half a mile off […]

DeSean Jackson tweets that he is joining the Redskins and fans go wild

Jackson tweeted his announcement a few minutes after midnight April 2. Thank gawd it wasn’t on April Fool’s Day. Yes, I am football superstitious.

Our reservations hover on DJax’s flighty, high-maintenance persona […]
