Text message from Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, via Trey Wingo at ESPN, providing an update on his knee.

“My knee is getting better every day. The doctors say I’m ahead of schedule. My goal is to return healthy in week one but if I’m not ready then I will wait until I am, however long that is. My first NFL season and my injury that ended it showed me a lot about the league, my team and myself. I know where my responsibility is within the dilemma that led to me having surgery to repair my knee and all parties involved know their responsibilities as well. I’m looking forward to playing the game we all love so much again and not behind at the negative. Thanks for the overwhelming level of support that I’ve received, sic ‘em bears and hail to the redskins!!”

Redskins coaching legend George Allen was honored recently for a lifetime achievement award at his high school in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.

Allen, head coach in Washington for seven years, is just one of several Burgundy and Gold heroes that have been honored over the past few months. Hall of Fame receiver Bobby Mitchell went back to Arkansas for a ceremony celebrating his legacy and current captain Robert Griffin III has been recognized across the Lone Star State in the past few weeks.

While Redskins Nation knows just how great of a man Allen was when he led the troops to 67 wins in his stint in the Nation’s Capital, many know little about the upbringing of the 2002 Hall of Fame inductee.

Spring football is one of the most intriguing times of the year in college football. It’s the first look at potential starters, position changes, and early enrollees. It’s also a homecoming in a sense for fans to come support their university as every team is at 0-0 with an even shot to hoist the BCS Title.

On April 20, Redskins Quarterback Kirk Cousins will be at Michigan State’s spring game, but he won’t be making calls from under center or slinging the pigskins to Spartans receivers.

Instead, find out how Cousins will use his bellowing, leadership voice for the East Lansing faithful here:

Is Success of ’83 QBs Indication of RGIII’s Future?

Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the past year, you witnessed one of the greatest seasons ever by rookie quarterbacks in 2012.

Need evidence? On January 6th, three rookie quarterbacks were starting in the playoffs within 30 miles of each other and two of the most dynamic signal callers to come through the professional ranks in decades were colliding in a matchup at FedExField. One of the two, AP Rookie of the Year and record holder Robert Griffin III, was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Redskins.

Griffin III, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck headlined one of the highly regarded draft classes in league history. The trio has been mentioned in the same breath as the highly vaunted 1983 class headlined by three Hall of Fame quarterbacks: John Elway, Jim Kelly and Dan Marino.

What the three men did during the 2012 season revolutionized the game as Griffin III and Wilson were at the center of the pistol formation title wave over helpless defenders and Luck adjusted with relative ease in replacing Colts legend Peyton Manning.

As the three look to displace any rumored possibilities of a sophomore slump, they will continue to be compared to the 1983 class this year.

Find out how the 1983 gunslingers did during their second campaigns in the NFL and how it could shed light on the possibility of greater performances for the 2012 class in their second season.

Griffin III Impressed By Wall’s Career Night

There is no denying that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is one of the most naturally gifted athletes on the planet. Baylor students and Redskins faithful can attest to his heroics with the pig skin, as he simply does the unimaginable sometimes. Just ask Vikings fans for proof after his 76-yard touchdown scamper against Minnesota during the 2012 season.

In high school, Griffin III was one of the best hurdlers in the Lone Star State.

But like the rest of us, his eyes have been glued to the hardwood in recent weeks. In the days leading up to the NCAA Selection Show, his alma mater was on the bubble and with the Bears needing a lift against perennial Big 12 power Kansas, Griffin III gave his school a much needed pregame speech to get them prepared for crunch time.

To the delight of all in attendance, Baylor was able to knock off Kansas – the last team to do so prior to the Jayhawks Sweet 16 run.

With the NCAA Tournament taking a few nights off after an amazing first weekend, it was the NBA’s turn to take center stage Monday night.

Griffin III was still amped up to watch some hoops and tuned in to see what was going down on the court. Last night, it was the performance of one local star that left the quarterback in amazement.
