It's always refreshing to have the correct perspective on the situation. So many overreactions on Adam Schefter's tweet yesterday that it made me sick.

Re: Official Redskins Off-season News and Rumors - Part Quatre

QB Robert Griffin III (right knee) did similar throwing drills to those we’ve seen the last two weeks. He moved smoothly rolling to his right at a brisk pace on a keeper. He ran long sprints after his throwing work. Afterwards, he limped slightly but noticeably.
“Larry [Hess, head athletic trainer] told me that coming out here,” Griffin said. “I asked him if he was joking because he does joke like that a lot, about me limping, but I didn’t feel like I was limping. Wasn’t sore at all. I did think he was joking, but he said he was serious and some people were saying they thought I was limping, but, nah, I wasn’t.”

"Last week, Orakpo unleashed a wicked spin move against Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams, who acknowledged Orakpo is a chore to block. Head coach Mike Shanahan has noticed."

Brian Orakpo: Defensive Player of the Year is 'very obtainable'

Thats the first time Ive read Orakpo and spin move in the same sentence. If he adds another move, that could be pretty big. All he normally had in the past was a speed rush and bull rush. Not saying DPOY big, but he doesnt have to be that to have a successful season.

Heck yeah. That's what I'm talking about.

Good back and forth about the offense. Not really breaking any news, but both sides are brought up in a respectful back and forth:

First thing he has said that I really don't like. Look it's great he wants to be out there, and seeing him in the few clips running around he looks great, but if the trainer and others are telling him he is limping, he needs to hear that and accept it.

Re: Official Redskins Off-season News and Rumors - Part Quatre

a good read, with good all-22 and other clips, of the 2 major injuries Griffin suffered, and how both were (very!) easily avoided if Griffin made a different decision:

I hope he watched these tapes, and continues to learn about letting a play die.
