Robert Griffin Iii
Latest Robert Griffin Iii Items
Robert Griffin III continues to win new fans and deepen his bond with others as his second season with the Redskins approaches. Several examples of his exploding popularity even test the limits of reason.
The Redskins’ scintillating run to the NFC East title last season overshadowed memories of their 3-6 start. Were they really as good as the final record, or did a depleted team just get hot with the help of a few breaks?
Griffin does not want to be a running back. He wants to be an elite passer. But as Shanahan so forcefully explained to reporters Wednesday, the zone read will help him to achieve that goal.
The Skins and Nats plan on RG3 and Harper being key components for an awfully long time, something the local fan base wouldn't mind. There's no solid reason to expect they won't become fixtures. Except for those knees.
Washington has no plans to change their offense despite Robert Griffin III's surgically repaired right knee that kept the quarterback out all spring and might keep him sidelined through the start of training camp on July 25.
When his teammates scatter to their offseason sanctuaries at the end of this week, Griffin will continue to rehab his knee at Redskins Park. And when his personal life leads him away from Ashburn this summer, his rehab regimen will not stop.
Tebow won the Heisman Trophy in 2007, four years before Griffin took home the honor. The Redskins do not play the Patriots this year, so Griffin will be left to admire Tebow only from afar.
The Redskins wrapped up three weeks of organized team activities Thursday at Redskins Park and will hold a minicamp next week before dispersing until camp opens in Richmond late next month.
His resume, like McNabb's, includes a former first-round draft selection, a Super Bowl defeat, a fall out of favor with the team that drafted him and the endurance of heavy fan scrutiny. Oh, and one other noteworthy accomplishment: Grossman took McNabb's starting job here three seasons ago by outworking him.
