The 2013 season is in full swing as free agency enters its third full week of wheeling and dealing. Pieces are being collected as teams look to build depth and are gearing up for a Super Bowl run in New Jersey in a little less than 11 months.

Power rankings have been created as a way to judge teams for the first time since the confetti finished falling from the roof of the Superdome in February.

This time last year, even with the pending additions of Heisman-winning quarterback Robert Griffin III and record-setting running back Alfred Morris, many across the league felt that the Redskins would once again be dwelling in the cellar of the NFC East for the fourth time in five years.

An improbable seven-game winning streak to end the season and the first playoff game in front of a sellout crowd at FedExField in 13 years put any…

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…

On Saturday, the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens tangled for the second time in months. For those of you that don’t recall how the events unraveled between the two teams in their first encounter, just check out this video as a reminder.

On this day, the two franchise that play a mere 30 miles away from each other on Sundays during the season, were showcasing their talents in a different sports arena where the final score meant literally nothing.

Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith was holding his third annual Torrey Smith Foundation Charity Basketball Game and invited some of the NFC East champs to do battle at the rim. He and the rest of hims teammates were hoping to extract revenge for their lost at FedExField and more importantly, to raise money for his foundation.

Alfred Morris

Terrell Davis is synonymous with “greatest draft steal of all-time” and when you look at his body of work during his eight year stint, its easy to see why he has been given that honor.

The 1995 sixth-round pick out of the University of Georgia wasn’t expected to play a key role out of the backfield for the Denver Broncos under head coach Mike Shanahan. However, after dazzling Shanahan and the rest of his staff during the dog days of training camp, he got the nod to be the starting tailback out of the gate.

Doesn’t this sound like a similar story for Redskins fans? (Hint, hint: Think Alfred Morris)

Davis churned out over 1,000 yards in his debut, however, his reign of dominance didn’t truly kick into gear until his second season in 1996.

Recently, Shanahan mentioned Morris in the same breath as Davis stating that “[Morris] really is [a one-of-a-kind]…

Thanks to you, Griffin III advances to take on a fellow second-year pro, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Doug Martin.
