Behind The Scenes: RG3’s MNF Segment

Posted by Andrew Walker on December 3, 2012 – 8:00 pm

It’s pretty obvious that the national spotlight — at least in the sports world — has been focused here the past few days on Washington, D.C.

Case in point: the ESPN Monday Night Football crew has been in town doing all sorts of projects with the Redskins for tonight’s game between the Redskins and the New York Giants at FedExField.

ESPN, of course, has wanted access to Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III for a variety of spots, including a segment for tonight’s game that will air right before the game. The Redskins Blog, of course, was there getting footage, as well.

(Griffin III also shot a spot for Monday Night Countdown with former NFL coach and current ESPN analyst Jon Gruden.)

There’s two points to this particular segment, according to the crew: one, Griffin III is an announcer calling his own plays from late in the fourth quarter of the Redskins’ first game against the Giants, including his mad dash and first-down conversion to Logan Paulsen and his eventual touchdown pass to Santana Moss to give his team the lead. Secondly, Griffin III talks about what was going through his own head during those plays, and how he’s looking forward for revenge tonight (which was all scripted by ESPN).

The crew said they were also going to film Giants quarterback Eli Manning doing something similar, so I’m really looking forward to seeing the finished product. It was a very interesting process, especially considering how many times Griffin III had to repeat such simple lines for the sake of a quality production.

Anyways, here’s the exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage of Griffin III filming the segment for ESPN’s Monday Night Football:
