I remember early in training camp Griffin responded to a question by saying as long as the team isn't distracted he was good responding to the media and enjoying the limelight, but if it becomes a distraction he would tone it down. Once the media tried to spin his comments into a rift I think he did just that, he stepped up said enough is enough, and at his next press conference he made pointed jabs at the media about how they weren't asking any questions/comments about the offensive line. That pretty much moved the conversation in the local media forward. The national media will follow but they tend to hold on to the sensationalistic headlines a bit longer. Griffin, in my eyes, gets it, he gets that the media will give him a stage, and he doesn't shrink from it, and he gets that the team is going to be directly impacted by how he acts on that same stage.

I am really looking forward to the special today, and to what he does on the field this year.

Besides, it's not like he doesn't have his priorities in order. The guy is a true pro when it comes to preparing himself both mentally and physically to play the game. I'm perfectly fine with what he does off the field.

Some people are just never happy I guess.
All of this

This.

There isn't much (if any) that I would change about RGIII. We've been dreaming of having a guy like this on our franchise for so long, so to start complaining about non-issues is disheartening to say the least. Enjoy the ride people.

You better get used to it. When all is said and done, he is going to be more obsequious than Peyton Manning, Bo Jackson or Michael Jordan.

... and all the fame could vanish in a moment. Let the boy play ... as long as it doesn't affect his play.
I don't see him like McNabb at all. Part of it really isn't even his own fault. The media has crowned the guy before he's even really done anything.

Well, the media crowned him based on the Skins' megatrade. At that point he was destined for media spotlight whether he succeeds or fails. Fortunately for Skins fans everywhere, it seems apparent that it will be based on success.

Yeah just one of the best rookie seasons ever for a QB, won the division, etc. Basically he lived up to the hype and then some.

Great idea Lotus, ESPN could do a series like 30 on 30:

Jay Cutler: the Will to Pout
Peyton Manning: the Will to Audible
Tony Romo: the Will to Lose (and you know what I mean!)
