A recent @Redskins Twitter poll turned up some interesting results about who Redskins fans feel will lead the team in rushing for the 2012 season.
The interesting aspect is that one of the candidates is a quarterback — rookie Robert Griffin III. Though many have expressed concern about Griffin III getting too many carries per game and risking injury, there’s no denying that he’s very dangerous with the ball in his hands.
Here’s the results of that poll, which got more than 450 votes this past weekend prior to the Redskins’ Week 3 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals:

Tony Dungy is one of the more intelligent and reasonable NFL analysts out there, so when he speaks, you should listen.
Dungy — a former NFL head coach and current analyst on NBC’s “Football Night in America” — on Monday was a guest on ESPN 980′s “The Sports Fix” and discussed Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, the team’s offense and how important wide receiver Pierre Garçon is to the team’s success.
Dungy knows a thing or two about Garçon, having been the Indianapolis Colts’ head coach in 2008 when the team drafted Garçon out of Division III Mount Union.
The full audio interview with Dungy is below, but here are some snippets from his conversation:

Tampa Bay Times Buccaneers beat writer Stephen Holder will now forever be known as the first repeat guest on the Redskins Blog “Behind Enemy Lines Podcast.”
We spoke to Holder about a month ago as the Washington Redskins prepared to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in both teams’ 2012 preseason finales, a game the Redskins won going away, 30-3.
Lots has changed for both teams since that game, and we’ll see the same matchup on Sunday as the Redskins travel to Tampa Bay to take on the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
Holder, if you couldn’t already tell, is our guest again for this week’s “Behind Enemy Lines Podcast,” and spoke about a variety of topics, including Buccaneers’ head coach Greg Schiano’s hatred of the victory formation and how Tampa Bay will move on without young stud defensive end Adrian Clayborn, who was lost for the season with a knee injury suffered in last Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
The full audio of our interview with Holder is below, but first, here’s some snippets from the conversation:
