Robert Griffin III
The only thing changing for the Redskins this season is RGIII’s boosted NFL IQ. Their game plan remains the same.
Something that may have gone unnoticed about RGIII – against all odds – was his explanation of why he doesn’t frequent the bar/club scene of Washington, D.C., which submitted willingly to WPGC’s Sunni at Pierre Garcon’s charity event last week.
After showing that he can now do “explosive sprinting” — his dreadlocks flowing behind him as he dashed from sideline to sideline in the end zone of the Washington Redskins practice bubble — Robert Griffin III then held a news conference that referenced LeBron James, Tim Tebow and “Bridezillas.”
Here’s what you may have missed, or if you didn’t, what’s worth re-reading this week (June 3-7).
Quarterback Robert Griffin III said Thursday “without a doubt” that he expects to be fully recovered from knee surgery and in uniform when the Washington Redskins open training camp on July 25 in Richmond.
Antrel Rolle, of Redskins’ NFC East foe New York Giants, dished it out against the rest of the division in an interview Tuesday, and for the Cowboys, it was ‘hard-hitting,’ but the safety sincerely had nothing but good things to say about Robert Griffin III.
Outside pressures for RGIII to pick a side in the Redskins debate are mounting, as writers near and far flex false bravado with their ink muscles, gathering more reaction with every sentence, to try to trick him into talking. But does he really need to say anything? Or can he just ride out the storm?
There were a lot of people watching RGIII’s nationally televised press conference Thursday, but not many people understood what they were seeing when Washington Post columnist Mike Wise flashed across the screen, with his weird Native American shirt and a message that was hard to make out.
Robert Griffin III had switched from a long-sleeved, black shirt to a white one, but his role in Washington’s organized team activities at Redskins Park remained the same from a week ago.
The ever-jovial Robert Griffin III addressed a team of reporters from Redskins Park on Thursday, so here’s a compilation of tweets covering what he said.
