Griffin III Wants To Know ‘Why?’

Posted by Andrew Walker on July 10, 2012 – 2:27 pm

The “who,” “what,” “when,” “where,” and “how” are apparently on the back-burner for Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III.

But it’s the “why?” that has the rookie quarterback curious.

Griffin III on Monday night sent a series of tweets to various Redskins teammates with the theme of “#KnowYourWhy” in an apparent effort to learn what drives them in life and in football.

Griffin III began the campaign around 9 p.m. Monday with this tweet:

Griffin III also added this:

He then asked several Twitter-friendly teammates — including Ryan Kerrigan, Tim Hightower, Anthony Armstrong, Lorenzo Alexander, Jarvis Jenkins, Terrence Austin, Niles Paul, Pierre Garçon, Alfred Morris, Richard Crawford, Aldrick Robinson and London Fletcher — about why they play the game and why they sacrifice.

To this point, Griffin III has received several responses, including from:

Alfred Morris:

Richard Crawford:

Pierre Garçon:

Niles Paul:

Anthony Armstrong:

Terrence Austin:

And Tim Hightower:

I definitely like this engagement by Griffin III with his new teammates. It gives the world a view of how these guys interact every day on and off the football field, and shows the rookie quarterback’s focus and leadership skills.

We’ll keep you posted if this drive progresses.

    Wow! I think it’s great to have chemistry on and off the field. Hopefully… gone are the days of clubbing after a loss. Never got that one. Better communication can be productive on the field. We can use players around here that think about each other, instead of self. Grind, stand, and fight together! It makes a winner!

    HTTR!!!!!
