Robert Griffin III: ‘I Have To Play Better’

All that popped in my head last night as I was driving home from FedExField was Sublime’s “I’ve seen better days”—well because I have. Most of Redskins Nation can agree with me on this.

This weather is best kept to Canadia and polar bears. The production from the hometown football team has left much to be desired, too.

Whether it’s the drama of speculated off the field relations, the constant special teams woes, the broken tackles a usually stout defensive unit has accrued or the offense failing to live up to its big play, quick strike moniker, the 2013 season hasn’t come even remotely close to the excitement 2012 gave us.

“Griffining” Week 1, the Tampa Bay comeback, the electrifying 76-yard run, Thanksgiving Day triumphs, sad Cowboys fans, consoling a downtrodden Tony Romo, beating the Eagles twice, the pitch/fumble to Joshua Morgan, the come-from-behind victory vs. Baltimore, Kirk Cousins ballin’ out in the factory of sadness and Alfred Morris waltzing his way into the record books are all—sadly—a thing for Redskins Historian Mike Richman to savor today.

Anyway, that loquacious introduction leads to quarterback Robert Griffin III’s postgame press conference—one you don’t want to miss after ending the game on the sidelines to not risk him in a game the Chiefs had a firm grip hold on.

    can we now try a real SS/FS on this team I don’t care what he has done. Let’s bring in Dominick Reyes from Stoney Brook ..6’4″ 220lbs 4.90 ….and can hit. see highlights at reyesd11

    Hog Heaven had this to say
    “Rarely does a small school prospect catch my eye quite like Stony Brook’s All-Star SS/FS Dominick Reyes. All I can tell you is, regardless of school, this kid can play. Think of him as a poor-mans Sean Taylor.”

    He is as good a person off the football field, as he is on it. Reyes has been a lead-by-example player since the moment he stepped foot on campus as a freshmen form the West Coast. What truly set Reyes apart are his instincts. He is a student of the game, and is rarely caught out of place on the field. When he is, he can make up for his mistakes with great athletic ability.

    Below is a cut-up of his senior year. All I can say, is this kid can really hit, and cover some serious ground.

    I have been a Redskins Fan since the 1970′s and I am becaming tired and weary of hearing your excuses each week. “I have to get better, work harder, be out there with “your guys”. First off the TEAM Players are not “your guys”, they are the TEAM Players of the Washington Redskins.

    There are no places for distractions and “I’s” in TEAM Sports. The Washington Redskins are no longer playing like a TEAM, dropping passes, missing tackles, blocks, etc…I finally understand why and get it now.

    The TEAM of the Washington Redskins is not the “Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins”. TEAMS are not and should not be built around ONE Player, as there are 52 other Members that make up this TEAM!

    If you’re quoting the same song I think you are, it was by Citizen King, not Sublime. That should tell you how bad yesterdays game was, that my main point is crediting the correct band on a song as opposed to commenting on the game. We’ll turn it around next year. HTTR!
