Baylor Rock Star RGIII Talks ‘Fresh Start’

RGIII

(via @Scottibeckwith)

Robert Griffin III has given literal bear hugs, scaled a 53-foot free-standing rock structure, delivered an inspirational speech and appeared on national television to talk about the Redskins all in the few days at Baylor.

When I go back to school my most productive move is procuring fried chicken sandwiches from my favorite biscuit kitchen.

The DC Sports Bog captured the quarterback’s comments on Washington’s coaching change while RGIII appeared on a Fox Sports 1 broadcast of a women’s basketball game between the Bears and the Oklahoma Sooners.

“We’re all excited, everybody in the [Redskins] organization,” Griffin III said. “Talking to my teammates, it’s not that we’re starting over; we’re just getting a fresh start. So we’ve got a new leader at the helm and we’re going to be a united front.” Read more »

Jim Harbaugh Wanted Robert Griffin III

(AP)

Robert Griffin III said no thanks. Jim Harbaugh got over it.

Back in the day, when Jim Harbaugh wore Cardinal-colored pullovers, the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers tried to convince Griffin III to commit to Stanford. The Redskins quarterback stayed closer to home, committed to Baylor and went on to win the Heisman trophy. With Andrew Luck in the fold, Harbaugh led Stanford to increased win totals for four straight years and won the Discover Orange Bowl.

In a conference call this week, Griffin III told media about explaining his college decision to Harbaugh when the two met at the 2012 NFL Scouting Combine. Read more »

Posted by Chris Herting on March 11, 2013 – 5:29 pm

Welcome to your weekly Redskins Social Media Spotlight, where we highlight the trendy topics and social media campaigns going on this week in Redskins Nation. Check it out and make suggestions below.

Last week’s Social Media Weekly Spotlight covered WR Niles Paul and his former Nebraska Cornhusker teammates doing the Harlem Shake, NT Chris Baker’s plea for 10k Twitter followers as well as a mural from Washington D.C.’s own WR Joshua Morgan.

Admittedly so, most people probably don’t get as far as clicking the link to read these weekly social media updates. Contrarily, some of you may be reading this and say, ‘Who cares about the Redskins Social Media Weekly Spotlight?’ To that, we say that it’s time to start taking social media seriously.

Fact of the matter is that social media has rapidly integrated itself into our everyday lives.

For those of you who continue to read, here’s a look at K Kai Forbath and LB Ryan Kerrigan as they hit the links, QB Robert Griffin III’s return to Baylor, LB London Fletcher‘s preparation for season 16 and G Chris Chester‘s odd, and forgettable, experience at his local gym.

RG3 Back In Baylor Garb For Promos

Posted by Andrew Walker on September 1, 2012 – 1:04 pm

If you’ve been anywhere near a TV for the past few months, then it’s probably been hard to avoid Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.

And you can add two new types of commercials to his growing list, both of which involve Griffin III wearing his old Baylor football uniform.

Griffin III is the cover boy on EA Sports’ “NCAA Football 13,” and he’s also participating in ESPN and Nissan’s “Heisman House” commercials, which is a fictional yet hilarious look at previous Heisman Trophy winners as if they lived together in a mansion.

Here’s the videos:

The Most Interesting Man In Washington

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 26, 2012 – 9:33 pm

At a little before 8:15 p.m. EDT, the Redskins ended months of speculation and secrecy, turning in their draft card for the No. 2 overall pick.  It was written in perfectly legible hand writing, so that there was no mistake in their intent:

“Griffin III, Robert”

But with the stroke of a pen and the passing of a card, the Redskins took a major leap towards a Redskins Renaissance, adding the elusive franchise quarterback.

Make no mistake–the journey has only just begun, and the work is still yet to come.  Griffin has never stepped foot on an NFL field, and between now and September 9th, he will have to ingest a playbook and prove his muster.

But it feels like a victory tonight, and Griffin, team executives, and Redskins fans have every right to be excited.  The rumors and speculation are over, along with the apprehension of disaster.  #RG3toDC is in full effect, and one of the most electrifying playmakers to ever play quarterback is scheduled to board his flight to Washington tomorrow.

Congratulations Robert, congratulation fans, and Hail to the Redskins. Say hello to : Read more »

Griffin Already On NFL’s Cerebral QB List

Posted by Brian Tinsman on April 13, 2012 – 5:41 pm

AP Image

With 13 days to go before the start of the 2012 NFL Draft, experts are already drawing unfair comparisons between players and handing out premature accolades to draft prospects.

‘Tis the season, after all.

In a recent discussion of the NFL’s “most cerebral” quarterbacks, Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com made the argument that some signal callers in the NFL held a distinct intellectual advantage over their peers.  It isn’t scientific or formulaic in nature, but the players generally considered to be the best are being called the “most cerebral.”

The list includes the Broncos’ Peyton Manning, the Saints’ Drew Brees and the Patriots’ Tom Brady.  Rosenthal gives credit to up-and-comers like the Bills’ Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers and the Bengals’ Andy Dalton.  It even throws Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger under the bus for failing to make the list.

But it also includes the name of one soon-to-be NFL quarterback who is already considered to be among the NFL’s “most cerebral.”  Whatever that means: Read more »
