The Washington Redskins face the Seattle Seahawks this weekend in one of four NFL wildcard games.
The Washington Redskins have spent since 2007 traveling the road back to the NFL playoffs -- but it's been a heck of a ride. Next stop: Sunday's wildcard game against the Seattle Seahawks. All this hailing to the Redskins should seem familiar. In 2007, the Redskins also made the 2007 NFL playoffs as a wildcard team. And, just like this year, that 2007 playoff game was against the Seattle Seahawks. Let's hope the similarities end there, because the Seahawks won the last time around.

Redskins hope the highly talented quaterback can bring the team succes on and off the field.
If you're wondering why everyone in your office is sporting braids and insisting on being called by their initials this morning, you can thank one person—Robert Griffin III. Thursday the Washington Redskins selected Griffin—more commonly known as RGIII—with the second overall pick in the NFL draft, culminating a months long lovefest with the highly talented Heisman winning quarterback out of Baylor University. With the pick, the Redskins and their fans hope to end a generation’s worth of mediocre play at football's most important position, and bring an infusion of excitement to a team seemingly incapable of escaping the gravitational pull of its black hole of futility.

The NFL Draft has finally arrived and the Washington Redskins are sitting in the No. 2 spot in the first round. ESPN projects the 'Skins will select Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin, III. If RG3 comes to Washington, it will be the first time the Redskins have drafted a quarterback in the first round since Jason Campbell in 2005.

The last time the Redskins drafted a Heisman Trophy winner was 20-years ago when Desmond Howard joined the team, according to the Washington Times.

Who would you rather see in the burgundy and gold, Manning or RG3?
After 14-seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, Peyton Manning was released and is a free agent. The Washington Redskins are planning to make an aggressive effort in bringing Manning to the DMV, according to the Washington Post. The Post also reported that it’s unclear if the Redskins will try to make a push to draft Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III in April. Colts owner Jim Irsay did not want to pay Manning a $28 million bonus that was about to come due because he does not believe the player can fully come back from his third neck procedure in 19 months, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Redskins along with Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans, and the New York Jets all have been rumored as possible …
