RG3’s Redskins locker full of inspirational messages
Rookie QB has his eyes on capturing a Super Bowl ring
Question of the Day
For rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, it’s a mix of inspirational messages and action figures, from the Incredible Hulk to Spider-Man and others.
The biggest typewritten message is: “Forget about being MVP; Forget about being in the Pro Bowl. Those are nice consolation prizes if you don’t get a SUPER BOWL RING.”
That jibes with what teammates have been saying about the first-round pick.
“I think from Day One he stepped in and said, ‘I’m here to win football games. I’m not here to see if I can be a good quarterback, I’m not here to see if things work out for me. I am coming to the Washington Redskins to win football games’ and I think a lot of people really, really like and respect that,” tight end Chris Cooley said.
Members of the media are prohibited from shooting video or photos of any Redskins player’s locker without his permission, but they are allowed to describe the contents.
Griffin has a photo and Biblical reference to go along with it, “I can do all things,” citing Philippians 4:13. Other messages include “Be unstoppable,” “Be Amazing,” “Conquer Every Obstacle,” “Sacrifice,” “Know Your Why,” “BU” (for Baylor University) and “Army Strong.”
