RGIII Denies Liking Anti-Skins Instagram Post, Blames Intern

Good lord, that’s a silly headline. It’s a silly story. But it’s been a silly three years, and there’s something microcosmic about the last 24 hours in Robert Griffin III’s preternatural inability to have a single thing go right or painlessly. Yesterday it was about losing his job. Now it’s about clicking a little… »9/01/15 8:57am9/01/15 8:57am

Look Away From Dan Snyder's Mess, Nothing To See Here

If there’s one thing the Skins are good at (and there may be just the one), it’s leaking to the media. After an ESPN report had owner Dan Snyder clashing with his football people on the future of Robert Griffin III, it took mere hours for sources to run to both local and national reporters and insist that’s it’s fine,… »8/31/15 9:24am8/31/15 9:24am

John Harbaugh Yells At Jay Gruden Then Bullies Sideline Reporter

John Harbaugh was not a very happy John last night. First, Washington linebacker Keenan Robinson sparked a brawl after pile driving Kamar Aiken down on his neck in the first quarter. Steve Smith and Chris Culliver were then ejected for doing some punches and Harbaugh’s blood also got to boiling, as he ran across the… »8/30/15 1:27pm8/30/15 1:27pm

Nobody Likes RGIII And I Kind Of Feel Bad For Him At This Point

Today, Robert Griffin III spoke to the media for the first time since being sacrificed to the Lions behind Washington’s Maginot offensive line. Everyone wanted to know: Was he concussed? Why have the Skins waffled on the status of his brain? Griffin gave the answers of a man who is supremely sick of this shit.… »8/27/15 4:01pm8/27/15 4:01pm

RGIII Has A Concussion, But You Wouldn't Know It From Official 'Skins TV

Tonight’s official presentation of the Detroit-Washington game on the Redskins Broadcast Network left viewers understandably confused about Robert Griffin III’s condition after leaving the game tonight in the second quarter due to injury.

Robert Griffin III Leaves Preseason Game With Shoulder Injury (UPDATE)

For some reason, Robert Griffin III stayed in Washington’s meaningless preseason game against the Detroit Lions for four series. Because Washington was missing Trent Williams and the rest of their offensive line is made of paper, Griffin got walloped half a dozen times before hurting his shoulder in a scrum for a… »8/20/15 8:44pm8/20/15 8:44pm

RGIII: "I Feel Like I'm The Best Quarterback In The League"

I have absolutely nothing to say about this, other than that lots of very talented people in all fields manage to go about their jobs and do great work without believing they’re literally the best in the world at it, and also that football season doesn’t officially begin until Robert Griffin III declares his belief… »8/17/15 1:20pm8/17/15 1:20pm
