- A season that began with such promise for the Washington Redskins has unraveled in rapid fashion. The team's record dropped to 0-2 here Sunday, and they looked stunningly overmatched in the process, surrendering the game's first 31 points as the Green Bay Packers coasted to a 38-20 victory at Lambeau Field. "We knew in order to win here in this venue, we had to play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "And obviously we didn't do that today. I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games, and we probably did just the opposite in the first half.

NFL No doubt that RGIII will start for Redskins in opener, source says After watching Robert Griffin III in practices the past two weeks, several Washington Redskins said they firmly believe he will be the team's starting quarterback in the Sept. 9 regular-season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Orthopedist James Andrews , who repaired Griffin's damaged right knee in January, must give final approval before Griffin is cleared to play, but several people who have been involved in Redskins' practices said Griffin has taken practically all of the snaps with the starting offense last week and this week and he has closely resembled the dynamic player who was named the NFL's offensive rookie of the year last season.

Angela Rypien is not bashful about her ambitions. That shouldn't be surprising considering her primary job responsibility is, ahem, tossing footballs around in her underwear in front of thousands of fans. She wants to be the best quarterback in lingerie football. She wants to pose in magazines ranging from Sports Illustrated to Vogue. She wants to be a reality TV star and a global icon. But right now, the 22-year-old has to settle for being the starting quarterback for the Baltimore Charm and the most famous player in the Legends Football League.

See if this makes sense to you: For years, I've argued with certain African-American people about their insistence upon using the so-called N-word which, to my ears, is, inalterably, a statement of self-loathing. They say I don't understand. They say the word no longer means what it has always meant. They say it's just a friendly fraternal greeting. I say one cannot arbitrarily decide that a word -- especially an old and bloodstained word -- suddenly means something other than what it always has. I say that while language does change over time, it doesn't do so because a few of us want it to or tell it to. And I say that if I call you an "idiot," but say that "idiot" now means "genius," you will be no less insulted.
