VIDEO: Griffin III On ‘The NFL Season’

“Like professional football, super heroes are a decidedly modern phenomenon. In the 21st Century, we see, in a game, a reflection of ourselves; and we see in characters conceived by the imagination the embodiments of who we might like to be — if only we could. And then, in this game, along comes a player offering glimpses of our fantasies; visions of the impossible.”

Well, that’s an awesome analogy to get your Bye Week started, huh?

Those three sentences are taken from NFL Films’ “The NFL Season: A Biography” and its recent profile on Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Griffin III, of course, has taken the league by storm through the first nine weeks of the 2012 season, but it’s the stories about Griffin III and how he operates that have really been intriguing.

“The NFL Season” takes an interesting look at how super heroes have played a role in Griffin III’s upbringing and how he goes about his business on the football field.

Griffin III’s locker at Redskins Park (which is re-created in the video below) is filled with not uncommon decorations like inspirational messages, but it also is filled with action figures of various super heroes that Griffin III adored growing up.

Here’s the video from “The NFL Season:”
