Robert Griffin III
Robert Griffin III didn’t expect to be 3-5 at the halfway point of the season. Nonetheless, that’s exactly where the Washington Redskins find themselves following Sunday’s 30-24 overtime win over the San Diego Chargers.
Shortly after writing that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has transitioned from the kid with the unbeatable combination of modesty and limitlessness, into an unteachable know-it-all, Washington Post columnist Sally Jenkins clarified that that’s just how he’s coming off at the moment.
Logan Paulsen delivered an impassioned rallying cry for his teammates, in an interview with 106.7 The Fan’s Chad Dukes and Grant Paulsen Tuesday, stating it’s time for the Redskins to “be accountable to each other and accountable to this team, and say ‘What can I do to get better?’”
The biggest concern for the Washington Redskins Sunday isn’t a 45-21 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos. It is the health of Robert Griffin III who exited late in the fourth quarter after taking a hard shot from Terrance Knighton.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos made it look easy on their first drive. And then the Washington Redskins defense woke up.
Coming off their two best rushing performances of the season, the Washington Redskins are starting to resemble the team that closed the 2012 regular season with seven straight wins.
After 16 years of playing quarterback in the National Football League, one could easily make the assumption that Peyton Manning can’t be rattled. That assumption however, would be incorrect.
Griffin may already be the best dual-threat quarterback to ever play professional football. And that’s not an opinion if you allow the statistics to do the talking.
Robert Griffin III has his legs back. Now it’s a matter of wondering what’s happening with his arm.
For many years Redskins fans found it easy to blame former special teams coach Danny Smith for all of their troubles. But now Smith’s value to the team is clearly evident as this year’s unit is unlike anything that we have seen in some time.
