Robert Griffin Iii
Latest Robert Griffin Iii Items
So much for the Golden Age of Quarterbacks. Through two weeks, I feel like I'm playing fantasy football in 1993 (a year in which John Elway threw for a career-high 4,030 yards and a then-career-high 25 TDs on my championship-winning fantasy team. Way too many dashes in that partial sentence).
Quarterback Robert Griffin III was surprised not to feel very sore when he woke up Monday morning. In addition to being knocked to the ground 13 times before the whistle in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the St. Louis Rams, he absorbed some punishment after it, as well.
Upsetting the New Orleans Saints in a charged atmosphere at the Superdome was a special victory for the Washington Redskins. The smiles on players' faces last week made that clear. But it didn't take long for veteran nose tackle Kedric Golston to provide the reality check.
A week after Robert Griffin III covered up the Nike logo on his warm-up shirt, the Redskins' quarterback — and Adidas pitchman — dodged the swoosh again.
Before Robert Griffin III took a snap in the first quarter Sunday, two key Redskins defenders left because of injury.
Sam Bradford threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns and Danny Amendola caught 16 passes for 160 yards in rallying the St. Louis Rams to a 31-28 win over Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
Every time something bad has happened to the Washington Redskins in recent years, it's cost them one way or another. A starter has gotten hurt — and there's been nobody to replace him with. Or somebody has fumbled or thrown a pick or committed some other on-field blunder — and it's crippled their chances to win a game.
NFL defenders tend to lick their chops when a rookie quarterback's on the schedule. The Washington Redskins' Robert Griffin III doesn't count the same way.
The Washington Redskins gained 459 yards against the New Orleans Saints and left the Superdome with an impressive upset victory. But the offensive linemen that plowed the way for those yards offered a lukewarm assessment of their play.
