After a seven game win streak propelled the team to a division title and a home playoff game, Redskins fans jumped on board for the ride realizing that this year’s team was clicking on all cylinders and prepared for greatness.
However, following the team’s playoff loss against Seattle, and then after hearing the news of Robert Griffin III’s injury, there were many broken hearts throughout the DMV. It’s safe to say that despite a phenomenal season which witnessed a worst to first turnaround and number four playoff seed, Redskins fans alike were inconsolable after the aforementioned series of events.
But then, a miracle in the making happened last week. The statement heard around the world from Dr. James Andrews saying that Griffin III’s recovery is ‘way ahead of schedule’. Just hearing that statement from Dr. Andrews last week seemed to calm a few of those nerves. Yet, even with that statement, the full recovery of number ten looms in the distance and with that comes an aspect of uncertainty that makes every Redskins fan a little bit anxious.
That, however, did not stop one of the more optimistic young Redskins fans from sending the quarterback her well-wishes last month.

Linebacker and special teamer Edgar Jones had a very scary moment on Friday night, when he was blocked in the back, into the oncoming returner. As soon as he was pushed, he went from being the hammer to being the nail, and took the full force of the hit on the helmet.
Jones left the game with a concussion, and talked about the play with the media this morning.
“When I saw the video [replay], I just couldn’t believe it happened that way,” he said. “Like I said, the only thing I remember was him catching the ball and going to hit him, and somebody pushing me in my back.”
“And then once he pushed me in my back, I really had no control over that.”
A scary moment for Jones and his family, but it was good to see him up and moving around this morning. Here’s a hoping for a full and quick recovery.
