The pie is so good you have to hide it.
London Fletcher couldn’t tell me why Jackie Griffin’s sweet potato pie is so good, only that if I got a chance to try it, I’d understand. And if he gets some, he’s not sharing.
Robert Griffin III brought Fletcher some of his mom’s famous pie for Thanksgiving last year, and the quarterback told the linebacker he’d try to hook him up this year, too.
Griffin III said the sweet potato pie is a must on Turkey Day. His family also follows the Lousiana tradition of serving a big pot of gumbo along with cornbread dressing.
Tyler Polumbus’ family delicacy is a cranberry and marshmallow salad he said he hasn’t seen anywhere else.
Barry Cofield said he won’t eat turkey, so a honey-baked ham is essential for every holiday.
“I can’t come if you don’t have it,” Cofield said. “Usually I bring it with me.”
Kedric Golston has to have baked macaroni and cheese. Fellow defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins mouth waters at the thought of deep fried turkey.
Pierre Garcon’s family will feast on oxtails, turkey and chicken.
Chris “Swaggy” Baker had a laundry list of Thanksgiving musts including sweet potato pie and and two types of cake. He also prefers a fried turkey.
“I’m a country boy,” Baker said. “I’m from up North, but I got a country soul.”
