Robert Griffin III said no thanks. Jim Harbaugh got over it.

Back in the day, when Jim Harbaugh wore Cardinal-colored pullovers, the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers tried to convince Griffin III to commit to Stanford. The Redskins quarterback stayed closer to home, committed to Baylor and went on to win the Heisman trophy. With Andrew Luck in the fold, Harbaugh led Stanford to increased win totals for four straight years and won the Discover Orange Bowl.

In a conference call this week, Griffin III told media about explaining his college decision to Harbaugh when the two met at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. Read more »

Lance Lewis: Will Do Everything At 100%

For 12 weeks this season Lance Lewis has walked into the locker room, beanie on with some sort of funky jam blaring from his headphones, and sat down at his locker without the media waiting for his arrival. Maybe a ‘Hey how are you doing, man?’ but not much more.

He stops and chats with a few teammates along the way to include quarterback Robert Griffin III whose locker is two down, but he remains relatively quiet, watching on as the media chases players down to get that much-needed soundbite about something they’ve deemed important.

On Thursday, Lewis was the guy the media was flocking to after news of his promotion to the 53-man roster.

Fred Davis Could Contribute Monday Night

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 22, 2013 – 1:57 pm

For the past three days, three members of the tight end group took added reps at practice.

Rookie Jordan Reed, who’s tied for the team lead with three touchdown catches and ranks second on the club in receptions (45) and yards receiving (499) , has been sitting out with a concussion.

If Reed is unable to play on Monday Night, a spot could open up for Fred Davis, who has been listed as inactive five games in a row. Both Mike and Kyle Shanahan have been complimentary of the tight end this week. Read more »

Mr. Rogers Returning To FedExField

For six seasons Carlos Rogers was a key in the Redskins secondary.

On Monday, he’ll try to stir the straw of media criticism against the Redskins with his new team.

Always a favorite in the locker room here in Ashburn (he won the Media Good Guy Award at one point too before leaving town) Rogers said the contest isn’t a revenge game.He’s not wired like that.

And what about those notorious hands of his?

More on the return of Mr. Rogers to his (old) neighborhood:

Enemy Storylines: San Francisco 49ers

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 22, 2013 – 10:39 am

There’s a lot of interesting storylines brewing for Monday’s matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Washington Redskins.

For starters, there’s the historical tone of a matchup involving two proud franchises that have won a combined eight Lombardi Trophies. Most recently, the 49ers won the NFC West before appearing in their first Super Bowl since the 1990’s. The Redskins, of course, won the NFC East with a flair for the unpredictability both in the win column and from a dynamic offense.

Current implications—both teams are still mathematically alive in the playoff race but need a win to stay alive. Just three years ago the NFC West was perhaps the worst division in NFL history. How else would you explain a 7-9 team playing postseason ball. Now, it’s a dogfight for supremacy. Sitting in last place of the NFC East, the Redskins desperately need a win to jumpstart the final stretch of plays.

Anyway, check out this week’s enemy storyline roundup from San Fran media below:

Series History: Redskins 49ers

Larry Centers scored the winning touchdown in overtime against the 49ers in 1999 (AP)

The journeyman fullback won it, crossing the goal line on a 33-yard touchdown catch in overtime that delivered the Redskins their first NFC East championship in eight years.

In 1999, Dan Snyder’s first year as the owner in Washington, Larry Centers caught a ball from Brad Johnson that capped off a 26-20 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

In a series unbalanced in San Francisco’s favor, Centers’ division clinching touchdown is one of the sweetest moments. The Redskins had not defeated the 49ers for 13 years before that moment.
