So why bother? Why didn't he just put that in his report back in December? That's a huge accusation to levy right before the draft.


I'm not saying his report is wrong or false. I'm questioning his timing and not reporting both sides or confirming it with other people.

Re: Robert Griffin III: The Man Behind The Name

Just read Dan Graziano's comments on RG3 and found this to be a rather powerful statement:

Quote:
Griffin's name will be the second one called a week from tonight at Radio City Music Hall, and he'll put a Redskins cap on and flash that enormous smile. His progress during the offseason and training camp will be fodder for regular updates on TV, in the newspapers and on the Web. He is tasked with resurrecting a Redskins franchise that has been waiting for him for nearly his entire life. He's big news, and if you want to know more about him, Tom and the Mag have you covered.
I'm really looking forward to next season...

Tanier: Griffin lucks out by being No. 2 - NFL- NBC Sports

NBC Sports on why RGIII is lucky to be the 2nd overall pick, instead of the 1st.

Re: Robert Griffin III: The Man Behind The Name

Great story SS. I find It hard to believe that he has character issues. All we have heard about is how he is such a hard worker, disciplined military kid, intelligent, and so on. I am excited to see the kid this year.

I think Griffin and Trent Richardson will be neck and neck all season as the best rookies.

But I think Andrew Luck will actually get the (somewhat undeserved) rookie of the year award when he leads the Colts to the playoffs in the NFL's weakest division.

Re: Robert Griffin III: The Man Behind The Name

Great read. I love hearing about young athletes not satisfied with their major milestones and acheivements. This kid says again and again that he is driven and seems his character won't fail. Too bad he doesn't have a rocket arm and cheetah speed....

We deserve a full package guy.

I don't often see eye to eye with NC but I gotta agree here.

Houston should take that division again.

Houston has no depth. And it's a long season.

Didn't suggest they did (I hope).

I like them in a 16 game season. Once you account for the fact that none of the other three teams would compete for a wild card if the division title didn't exist, it pretty much comes down to record within the division. And Indy gets the divisions' best (or second best) quarterback, and just as many home games as everyone else.

I mean, heck, Indy went 2-4 in the division last year, isn't Luck worth some sort of bump?

To be fare they beat a Houston team without Matt Schaub and a rookie QB with Tennessee, plus they went 0-10 outside the division. Lost their best (arguable) WR, top 2 TEs, top RB, and have no defense outside of an aging Freeney and Mathis. I don't see what you do. I don't think they go 2-14 again but they will have a top 5 pick in the 2013 draft.

Re: Robert Griffin III: The Man Behind The Name

Peter King's take on the whole RG3 bashing...

Peter King ‏ @SI_PeterKing
Re RG3 bashing: When I asked him for his favorite play of '11, he talked for 5 minutes about his downfield block on RB TD in Alamo Bowl.

Peter King ‏ @SI_PeterKing
I'm sure some scout thinks Griffin is selfish. But in my reporting on him+Luck, I never heard that trait mentioned once about either guy.
