Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon says quarterback Robert Griffin III is ‘a lot different’ this year.
What’s been the key to RGIII’s ‘rusty’ look in the first two weeks of the Redskins season? Brian Moore, director of business for the manufacturer of his knee brace, says it’s a confidence thing.
NFL Today host James Brown said RGIII needs to “tone it down a bit” in an interview with the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan, adding that the Redskins organization needs to hold him back from continuing to be overexposed, because he’s getting under the skin of players around the league.
Mike Wilbon cut straight to the root of the Redskins’ problems in an interview with the Junkies on 106.7 The Fan, calling the source of their 0-2 record a “system-wide” problem, rather than an issue that can be blamed on just Robert Griffin III and his struggles to return to prominence after surgery.
Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan’s latest endorsement involves loosely disguising himself as a sales associate for Modell’s Sporting Goods and trying to sway Redskins fans into buying his jersey over Robert Griffin III’s. Watch it here.
Pierre Garcon told 106.7 The Fan’s Holden and Danny that his intentions weren’t to diss RGIII by saying he wasn’t as fast as he was in 2012, and put to bed any rumors that the two would settle questions of who’s faster in a friendly race.
Capitals’ center Brooks Laich, who says he’s “100%” after giving everyone a good injury scare on the first day of training camp, lent his first-hand account Thursday to how a knee brace can limit an athlete’s mobility, in relation to Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The Junkies conducted a very scientific experiment consisting of multiple speed drills on Thursday, to determine how greatly wearing a knee brace affects RGIII’s speed on the field. It was incredibly scientific and the results were completely legitimate.
Robert Griffin III is staying clear of the dispute over the Washington Redskins nickname, saying the topic “is something way above my understanding” in an interview on Wednesday.
When Robert Griffin III leads the Redskins into battle against the Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, he’ll be taking on the one quarterback in the entire NFL with the a skill set that can come close to mirroring his in Aaron Rodgers.
