Via WTOP, this is HILARIOUS. Not quite as good as his earlier man on the street during training camp though. RGIII has the best selling NFL jersey in league history. Watch how Ryan Kerrigan pranks some unsuspecting Modell’s shoppers and tries to get them to buy his jersey instead of RGIII’s.
This is shaping up to be quite a surprising season so far with just two games in. Numbers in parentheses are last week’s rankings.
Here are my thoughts on who the best teams in the NFL are…
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III talks to the D.C. media following practice on Wednesday, September 4, 2013.
In this video, he answers question from the sports media from Philadelphia, PA via conference call.
Deviating from the Washington Redskins for a moment because I am really pulling for LB Brian Banks to make the Atlanta Falcons roster. I’m hoping that in the end, he makes the practice squad at least.
If he does, it’ll be the feel good story of the 2013 season.
The first round of cuts are done and Brian Banks is still on the Falcons’ roster.
You might think that Tuesday’s deadline loomed large for a player trying to resume his football career after almost 10 years away from the game after being wrongfully convicted of rape while in high school, but Banks said that he wasn’t sweating a visit from the Turk. Banks said that he knew he had worked as hard as he could to make a good impression on Falcons coaches and was prepared for any outcome.
As the NFL preseason gets underway and before you start getting all worked up this preseason about certain flags for penalties like an excessive celebration, you should see this video from the NFL on the rules changes for 2013. This video has been played in the training camps of all 32 teams
The NFL has put the kibosh on excessive TD celebrations like Alfred Morris’ home run swing (see above) which is (now was) a salute to the kids in Little League.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Beware the military salute!
The National Football League will reportedly be cracking down on excessive celebrations and taunting this upcoming season.
Pro Football Talk reports that that referees working training camps have been warning players about celebrating too much.
The taunting rule is nothing new in the NFL, but what some critics have dubbed the “No Fun League,” officials will now go a step further to enforce the rule.
The NFL rulebook states that a team will be penalized a loss of 15 yards if a player commits these acts: “sack dances; home run swing; incredible hulk; spiking the ball; spinning the ball; throwing or shoving the ball; pointing; pointing the ball; verbal taunting; military salute; standing over an opponent (prolonged and with provocation); or dancing.”
I can see banning things like the sack dance, throwing or shoving the ball, pointing, and standing over an opponent but, the home run swing and military salute?
C’mon National Football League.
