Peter King: Redskins Will Win More Titles

There’s few football writers I respect and trust as much as Sports Illustrated’s Peter King. I’m sure most in the league agree with that statement, as well.

So when King says that Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is going to lead his team to multiple Super Bowl titles, I can’t help but get a little bit giddy.

King broke out his crystal ball and made the projection this morning in his weekly “Monday Morning Quarterback” column.

Oh, and he also compares Griffin III to Irish musician and U2 front man Bono.

But back to Super Bowls.

King said it won’t be long until the Redskins have built around Griffin III enough to capture multiple titles:

“Watching this game, I kept thinking how glad I was that Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen paid whatever it is they paid to deal for Griffin,” King wrote. “And whatever it is, it’ll be worth it. He’s one of the great, special players to come into the league in the 29 seasons I’ve covered it. No play’s ever over. Though he’s running for his well-being on 10 or 12 plays a game, he still leads the NFL after seven games of his rookie year with a 70.4 percent completion rate. Once he gets the kind of protection Shanahan and Allen will build for him, he’ll be better, and the Redskins will be competing for championships. That’s right — plural.”

King also talked about the cringes and then “oohs” and “ahhs” reverberating from an NBC viewing room by Rodney Harrison, Tony Dungy, Dan Patrick, Mike Florio and others as they watched Griffin III and the offense convert on a critical 4th and 10 play late in yesterday’s game vs. the New York Giants:

“I always judge the mark of an incredible play in an NFL game by the reaction it gets in the NBC viewing room on the fifth floor of our Rockefeller Center building in Manhattan,” King wrote. “And when Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III had a 4th-and-10 with 2:07 left at the Meadowlands, his team down 20-16 to the Giants, this is the sound I recall hearing from the likes of Rodney Harrison, Tony Dungy, Dan Patrick, Mike Florio and a score of other football wackos in the room as Griffin took the snap, looked for a receiver, found them covered, then rolled left, Giants chasing him — “Getridofit! … Noooooo! …. Whoaa!!! … Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!”

Sounded louder than “Born To Run” at a Springsteen concert. Somehow, some way, as the law was closing in, Griffin, stumbling forward, threw a low 19-yard strike to tight end Logan Paulsen.”

King was so impressed by Griffin III that he ended his column with a haiku about the Redskins rookie:

Love football? Me too.
Learned one thing in Week 7:
RGIIIā€™s something.

CHIME IN: Do you agree with Peter King’s prediction that Robert Griffin III will lead the Redskins to more Super Bowl titles? Feel free to comment below.

    I think that Peter is correct, I just hope that this happens within 1-2 years, I have been waiting since 1993 for a new Redskins Superbowl Champions Hat šŸ™‚

    Pete Kings is correct .. Red Skins around RG3 & RG3 around Red Skins will have the best game of a life time & adding Chris Cooley is an other plus . if Red Skins really wants to have a strong team the MUST get rid of Defense coach & his assistant RaHeem Moore 2 corner backs # 23 & 26 & get better player who really wants to play for team & fun not just for them selves . the lost to Giants yesterday is 100% on the secondaries

    I do think that he is correct. I do think that RGIII is the real deal. I believe that it will take a TEAM to win the Super Bowl(s). I have said for the past few months that it feels different in Washington. If the Redskins stay focused and play like a Team, I am confident that the wins will come!

    A New York Redskins Fan,

    I just can’t believe Peter King said something POSITIVE about the Redskins.

  8. By Jason Redskin on Oct 22, 2012 | Reply

    Agreed. I am also a New York based Redskins fan (originally from the DC area). It has been a hellish 20 years for the Skins but I am very optimistic with Griffin at the helm! What a great athlete and leader!

    RGIII will be great, but winning Super Bowls depends on a lot more than the Quarterback. The year that the Patriots were 17 or 18 and 0 and lost to the Giants wasn’t Tom Brady’s fault. The Patriots lost 2 linemen the game before. It’s all about the O-lines and D-lines. That’s who wins championships, the blue collar guys. Of course it’s a team event, including coaches, but many of the greatest QBs in history never won a Super Bowl. Just look at Dan Marino, Warren Moon, Steve McNair, Jim Kelly, and Fran Tarkenton. John Elway never won a Super Bowl till he was over the hill and had a running game. I don’t want to be negative, but Peyton Manning is the best QB in the last 20 years, maybe in history, but he has won how many Super Bowls? One!!! The Redskins were lucky with Joe Gibbs. He was a great coach and his teams far exceeded their talent. He took teams that should have been 10-6 lose in the first round to Super Bowl Champions.That’s a testament to his coaching ability. Don’t put it all on RGIII.

    i believe that rg3 has the stuff to make the skins go i mean has’nt he already proven that, and the secondary does need improvement that goes without saying but how the skins will go about doing it is another thing entirely.lets hope its through the draft.

    They gonna have to fix that secondary to get deep in the playoffs…ppl said rg3 will be the reason y the redskins dont go to the playoffs when really it will be the defense fault if they dont get it together after the bye week

    I think Peter King is an annoying idiot. It is amazing that he said something good about the Skins. He said they will be competing for championships. That’s not quite predicting winning championships.

    I am a die hard redskins fan have been for 35 years. But this is not going to happen as long as Snyder is the Owner and the Shanahannnnnnns are in DC. I have even canceld my sunday ticket….Not worth it for another loosing season.

    I agree with mr. king, as should all real redskins fans should. seeing how long the franchise has not truly addressed the position. now it is funny or ironic how the defense can’t hold up like in previous seasons,

  15. By tim erlwein on Oct 23, 2012 | Reply

    That dude James is an idiot. How do u cancel ur ticket and bail on ur team when the most exciting player(let alone qb) in years is ur 1st round pick?… and he’s on pace to shatter multiple records!

    U are dumb.

    That is all.

  16. By Hanna, fan for life on Oct 24, 2012 | Reply

    yes before.rg3 retire he probalby win six or seven superbowl. HE WILL BREAK AWHOLE LOT OF RECORDS RG3 will retire as the best qb that ever play the game.
