“Robert Griffin III looked drastically different than he did at this point last year – as he was just getting used to moving around again – and noticeably different even than he did at many points last season.
“Griffin on Thursday just looked more fluid, more comfortable and confident. Critics last year said that Griffin didn’t step into his throws as much, although he always refuted such claims. But today, he definitely planted on his back leg, stepped into throws and drove the ball downfield.”
~ Mike Jones, Observations from Thursday’s practice, The Washington Post.
That is news we expected to hear and it is news we needed to hear. Griffin is the straw that stirs the drink for the Redskins. They will go as far as he carries them. Hog Heaven believes the ‘Skins will challenge for the division. We make no projection beyond that, now.
“He’s matured.” ~ Pierre Garcon speaking about RGIII on sports talk radio yesterday.
