I’m absolutely ready. That’s why I’m here,” Foles said, via “So I’m ready to go I prepare every day, work every day — if need be.

Redskins CB Josh Norman indicated that he wants to move on if Washington isn’t going to be in a position compete for championships in the coming years.

“I came here to win a championship,” Norman said after Sunday’s game, via Kimberly A. Martin of the Washington Post. “If we’re not doing that, what are we doing? Why are we here?

“Because I’m not going to be a part of something that’s not going to go forward and win a championship. That’s serious. I don’t care about the money, I don’t care about the fame, I don’t care about anything. The only thing I care about is that ring. You can strip me however you want to; strip all the titles I have to my name. If I don’t win a championship, that means it’s all for nothing.
