Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

One of the most overused clichés in sport is the sophomore slump. If a second-year play has one bad game they are instantly smacked with the label as if all their accomplishments from a year before are a moot point.

Take running back Alfred Morris for example. Self-admitted, No. 46 had a terrible game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the season opener. With two fumbles in the first quarter a career-low in yardage, detractors were quick to jump on him in belief that he was a mere system back and defenses figured him out.

Well we’ve seen how that’s turned out.

The same two-word assumption was being floated around the man whose ‘R-G-3’ chant has filled the surrounding air of stadiums across the country—until Sunday. With a marvelous performance against a vaunted Bears defense, quarterback Robert Griffin III reasserted himself as one of, if not the, best dual-threat in the game.

He touched on the read-option among other things at his weekly press conference this afternoon.
