Footage From Redskins Rookie Mini-Camp

Posted by Brian Tinsman on May 4, 2012 – 2:30 pm


As the rookies and first year players took the field for the first of five practices this weekend, all eyes watched Robert Griffin III and his electric burgundy and gold socks walk down the hill to the back practice fields.

And by all eyes, I mean Redskins.comTV, as the practices were otherwise closed to the media.  Check out the website for regular updates and remember to tune into Redskins Nation tonight, for the full footage report.

Even though Griffin III may be the star of the show this weekend, he continues to impress me with his poise.  

His journey has only just begun between the hash marks, but the way that he interacts with the coaches isn’t typical of a wide-eyed rookie.  Perhaps importantly for him, the way he interacts with his fellow players is very humble and down-to-earth.

The real test begins when the veterans get added to the mix in a few weeks, but he’s been very impressive during his first eight days as a Redskins player–for what that’s worth.

Although it didn’t rain heavily earlier today, there was a crackle of thunder, enough to push the practice to the indoor practice facility.  We’ll have photos from inside the bubble later this afternoon.  Stay tuned.

    Hopefully the skins won’t do RG3 like they did Campbell . You know change offenses every two years. Consistency is the key to winning not trying something new every two years.

    Oh my hair is standing up…Croomptom must have out on 30lbs of muscle and was paid decently to stick around on squad.

    He looked really good today. All of the first year guys looked exceedingly comfortable in practice today.

    correction – Jason Campbell had either a new offensive playbook or new O coordinator every season he was with us.

    C Kibuka–

    It’s no knock on Campbell, but he doesn’t qualify as a franchise guy. He was good, not elite. Griffin III is not elite, but there’s hope that he reaches that level over time.

    campbell wasn’t elite, who is…. ? you guys know and i know. nobody can go thru what he endured and be elite. brady,mannings 2, and green bay’s QB never had to change offenses every yr. he was tarnished so it wouldn’t out do his white counter parts. (doug williams,warren moon) ring a bell ???????????

    @kenney dawson–

    I’m not sure I follow your theory, because none of my criteria for “elite status” are based on race. Campbell had a Washington record of 20-32, which puts his career winning percentage south of .400. He went to the playoffs exactly once as a starter and didn’t win a game. Speaking hypothetically, maybe he could have been something under better circumstances, but he didn’t produce at an elite level. He didn’t win a Super Bowl, so I wouldn’t mention him in the same breath as Theismann, Williams or Ryp. That’s just a simple fact.

    What I meant was even brady or who ever you like would struggle changeing the offenses ever year . While I would never call Campbell elite he could have been a good qb if developed correctly. I honestly believe the skins would have won more games with him the last two years. Campbell was a class act i’ve never heard him rip the redskins for mismanagement of him. MaNabb on the other hand blasted the skins on espn first take . Anyway thats the past & RG3 is the future htttt….

    if u can’t see that when certain QB’s come in the league .. their are missing ( a line, receivers, or a good running back) check it out and u may learn something. Doug Williams came in to the league with nothing in Tampa and went to the playoffs. How was he treated, Warren Moon… etc should i go on. NO IT’S NEVER ABOUT RACE, IT DON’T EXIST. caps were not meant for hollering, just emphases.

    I just have to say that I hope RG3 was not taking any advice from Crapton on how to do anything mentally…..The second Crapton throws a pick you can bet 3 more will come soon. Keep RG3 away from him

    had j campbell had been given time to develop under one system and not subjected to multiple changes he would have been a great fit and an even better qb but oh well the beat goes on GOOD LUCK RG3 make the nation proud young man

    what do you guys think about us resigning hightower me personally the guy is a beast he just cant stay healthy and that hurts us as he watches on the sidelines but none the less the dude puts in work looks like he may be interested in the patriots though

    You can’t compare Jason Campbell to RGIII at all. He’s a different personality altogether; under a totally different organization with different coaches and management. The comparison is pointless. We ALL wish him spectacular success and support him 100%! HTTR!

    i just hope the pieces around RG3 are enough to keep him off his back. Nothing can break a man’s confidence more than getting laid out every play. Here’s hoping the idiots (T.Williams and F.Davis) learned their lesson about smoking a little reefer. Here’s a newsflash….YOU CAN’T SMOKE POT, IT’S ILLEGAL AND YOU WILL GET SUSPENDED. that is all

    Washington will be a dam good team this year going 11 and 5 . Then playoff then you fill in blank.

    Hanna, hope you are right-I will be satisified with 11 and 5:-)
