Not genuine? Really? When the comment from everyone who meets him is that he makes you believe in him and want to be around him?

I don't know the guy from Adam, but, judging just on the reactions of those who have actually met him, he is everything he appears to be.

Bottom line look at the game he got injured in, the Ravens game was a pass play that he scrambled and didnt get down quick enough. His injury was not due to the style of offense we played last year.

Jordan Reed struck by RGIII’s humility

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

I don't care about all of this made up problems with the staff, his ego, or anything else. This kid is a baller and the face of the franchise and is heading towards being the face of the NFL.

It will never end, but believe me I still love the kid we met about a year ago and still believe he is the same person as when he got here.

Man crush continues from ArtMonkforHall!!!

I am sure many dads think their sons bosses could do things differently. The reason this gets playtime, is because stories about Griffin generate views. Thus they want more stories about Griffin.

I will say this, the best discussion I have seen from Griffin on the Seattle game, and the end of last season, came in the ESPN magazine a few weeks back. If you haven't read it, you should, it gives a very good portrait of the whole situation.

Re: Off Season Griffin Man Crush thread

To many people worried about perception. The reality is the people who go on to win championships tend to believe that they can win championships. In other words, they are arrogant. I hope RG3 is arrogant. I dont want a choir boy, I want a SB victory.

Michael Jordan is not a nice guy. Never has been. But who exactly cares when you can put 6 rings on your fingers? If RG3 wins a SB as the Redskins QB, who exactly is going to care about twitter from after his rookie year? The only thing wrong with him accepting gifts is that he doesnt have a ring yet. If he did, no one would care.

We have to deal with the media and RG3's dad giving interviews. We used to have to deal with a team that was led by Vinny. I will take a talkative dad and media hype all day long over Vinny. Its not like hes married to a supermodel who goes on a drunken rage and bashes his team mates when they lose an important game, but then again, 2 rings justify that.

With success comes exposure, and it seems some would rather go back to a 3-13 record than deal with the media crap that comes with being relevant. I am thrilled RG3 is here, warts and all. People expect him to be perfect. You are just reaching way to far on what should be expected. Perfection is not going to happen.

RG3 on the field, throwing passes at Redskinsí OTAs | ProFootballTalk

@john_keim: Griffin is throwing during the ota session. Dropbacks. Plant and throw at times. Sometimes more off front foot. #Redskins

Yup. I am sure that he had to have a gazillion people sign off on that one.

I am aslo sure that the Shanny hate will undoubtedly flow. Most probably think the guy should just go into cold storage until sometime after Sept. 1st.

Also, I'm sure he's lightly going through the motions. Highly doubt he's going full speed. Just wanted to get this in before the inevitable freak-outs.

Griffin read off a script of plays designed by the training staff so he doesn't do too much, too fast. He threw with good zip and accuracy to a group that included tight end Fred Davis, who suffered a torn Achilles tendon last October.

Robert Griffin III looks good at Redskins workout

Sounds like its half speed stuff. It was also reported a while back that he was throwing and had been doing some roll out throws in rehab. Sounds like he is continuing with that.
