Whats good for the quarterback should be good running back. And the NFL agrees.Quarterback Robert Griffin III said last month that the NFL would allow him to wear Griffin III on the name plate on the back of his jersey like he had at Baylor. The league has generally steered clear of allowing anything but the players last name there. It was unclear whether the NFL made an exception for Griffin or if they have changed the policy.It appears that the league is changing its policy, at least on a case by case basis. Running back Roy Helu is named after his father and at Nebraska, he wore Helu Jr. on the back of his Cornhuskers jersey.But as a rookie last year he simply had his last name on the back of his jersey. That will change this years. From Helus Twitter feed @royhelujr29Its official ! Nfl has allowed me to truely be myself...Helu jr on the jersey. Number 29 in ur program but number (inseert) in ur heart haIts a small thing but it makes a difference to players who are named after those who came before them.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is always open to some coaching no matter who it comes from. On Friday that coaching came from Veronica, an 85-year old woman who works at Congressional Country Club and is a die-hard Redskins fan.
Cousins posted a picture of the pair together on his Instagram account Friday afternoon.
Why I love playing for Washington... Just met Veronica, an 85 year old employee at Congressional Country Club, has worked there for 53 years and is a diehard Redskins fan. She had 3 thoughts to share: 1. She coaches me from her couch 2. Wants to be sure I get the ball out when I drop back 3. Wants the new receivers to get involved in the offense I'll see what I can do!
Veronica made some solid suggestions, especially the one about him getting the ball out of his hands quicker.
Despite the rocky contract situation with the team, there's no question that Cousins loves the passionate Redskins fan base.
