Rookies Robert Griffin III and Alfred Morris have, to this point of the season, racked up nearly a combined 5,000 total yards and 31 total touchdowns.

That’s staggering production for a rookie quarterback-running back duo, but Morris hopes a recent knee injury to Griffin III won’t stall their momentum.

Morris joined the NFL Network’s “Around The League” today and talked about Griffin III participating in his first practice Wednesday since injuring his knee in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ 31-28, overtime victory against the Baltimore Ravens.

The video of Morris’ appearance is below, but here’s a snippet from the interview, which was crashed at the end by two teammates:

VIDEO: Redskins On ‘Turning Point’

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 12, 2012 – 5:26 pm

Turning Point

There were several “turning points” for the Redskins in last Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, so naturally, they’re featured in a show by the same name.

The Redskins-Ravens matchup — and particularly how Redskins’ quarterback Kirk Cousins was able to come in relieving injured starter Robert Griffin III and help lead his team to the 31-28 overtime victory. — will be featured tonight on NBC Sports Network’s “Turning Point,” which airs at 10 p.m.

According to the NFL Films Blog, the Cousins angle will just be one of several explored in tonight’s episode of “Turning Point,” and include:

If You Texted Kirk Cousins, He’s Sorry

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 12, 2012 – 5:11 pm


Kirk Cousins is a really nice guy and tries to respond to every text message he receives.

But when 140 people flood his inbox immediately after a game, only close family members make the cut to get immediate responses.

Cousins today was asked how many people reached out to him after he helped lead the Redskins to their 31-28 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday at FedExField, and said 140 people — ironically the same number of characters allowed per tweet in Twitter — texted him by Monday morning.

“And I think I responded to two,” Cousins said. “I called my dad, talked to my parents, talked to my siblings, my brother and sister, talked to my grandparents and that was about it.”

Cousins also had a special message for the 137 people he ignored.

VIDEO: Griffin III On Being A Black QB

When his NFL career is over — hopefully years and years from now — Robert Griffin III wants to be known simply as one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game of football.

And though Griffin III would like to eventually have his names tossed around with the other greatest quarterbacks of all-time, he knows that the color of his skin draws other comparisons.

Griffin III said today, however, that skin color should have nothing to do with how he’s perceived as a quarterback, as many black quarterbacks are mislabeled as “running” QBs.

“They’re always going to try to put you in a box with other African American quarterbacks – [Michael] Vick, [Cam] Newton, Randall Cunningham, Warren Moon,” Griffin III said. “But there’s guys, like the guys I just mentioned, Warren Moon, and Doug Williams, who really didn’t run that much.”

Griffin III considers the “running quarterback” stereotype to be negative, especially when looking at the careers of players like Moon — a 2006 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee — and Williams — who won a Super Bowl with the Redskins in 1987.

“Those guys threw it around,” Griffin III said. “I like to think I can throw it around a little bit. That’s the goal – just to go out, and not to try to prove anybody wrong, but just let your talents speak for themselves.”

Griffin III was asked today in his weekly session with the media what a pioneer like Martin Luther King Jr. means to him, and how he reacts to being labeled an “African-American quarterback” and someone many Redskins fans can relate to. Here’s the full video:

12/12/37: Redskins’ First NFL Title

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 12, 2012 – 4:17 pm

Seventy-five years ago today, the Washington Redskins began a tradition of winning that few NFL teams can currently match.

On Dec. 12, 1937, the Redskins defeated the Chicago Bears, 28-21, at Wrigley Field to win their first-ever NFL championship. Chicago led 14-7 at halftime before Washington, led by quarterback Sammy Baugh, stormed back in the second half. A 35-yard touchdown pass from Baugh to wingback Ed Justice broke a 21-21 tie in the fourth quarter and gave the Redskins the title.

Baugh — a rookie at the time — led the way by completing 18-of-33 passes for 335 yards and three touchdowns. The game’s first touchdown was scored on a seven-yard reverse play to halfback Cliff Battles.

Washington would go on to win four more NFL championships — one in the pre-Super Bowl era (1942) and three Super Bowls (XVII in 1982, XXII in 1987 and XXVI in 1991).

12/12/12: No. 12s In Redskins History

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 12, 2012 – 2:42 pm

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

In case you haven’t heard, today is 12/12/12. This date won’t happen again for another century.

To celebrate, The Redskins Blog has brought to you an extensive look at the No. 12s in Washington Redskins history.

To date, 21 Redskins players have worn No. 12 for a season, according to Redskins public relations (14 are pictured above). Currently wearing the number, of course, is rookie quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Of those Redskins No. 12s, 11 were quarterbacks, three were halfbacks, two were wide receivers, and one each were a fullback, tackle, end, defensive back and punter.

Overall, the Redskins are 273-245-4 (.527) in the seasons in which a No. 12 plays for the team.

And, on an interesting note, no player wore No. 12 for the Redskins from the 1953 through 1974 seasons. Washington was just 127-151-14 (.435) during that span.

Here’s the breakdown of the 21 No. 12s in Washington Redskins history:
