There’s many, many NFL experts and analysts who have spent their Holiday season eating crow about how they believed the 2012 season would turn out for the Washington Redskins.

Though we at the Redskins Blog are in the process of recovering some of those same experts’ predictions from weeks and months ago, it’s also worth bringing up those who have admitted when they were wrong.

NFL.com Around The League editor Gregg Rosenthal did just that yesterday.

Robert Griffin III Among MVP Candidates

Posted by Andrew Walker on October 17, 2012 – 5:28 pm

Perhaps NFL.com Around the League editor Gregg Rosenthal has been paying attention to our MVR(edskin) polls after Redskins wins.

OK, probably not, but after six weeks of action on the gridiron, Rosenthal apparently agrees with you Redskins fans that quarterback Robert Griffin III deserves to be among those in the discussion for league Most Valuable Player.

Rosenthal today released his weekly “MVP Forecast,” and the dynamic Redskins rookie (not named Alfred Morris) came in at No. 6.

Here’s what Rosenthal had to say about Griffin III’s value so far this season:

The Washington Redskins have one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league, two incredibly talented rookies at quarterback and running back doing their thing, while all four of their games so far in 2012 have come down to the wire.

As a result, NFL.com Around The League Editor Gregg Rosenthal has included the Redskins among the best teams in this week’s “most-watchable teams” power rankings.

So where exactly do the Redskins rank on Rosenthal’s list?

Griffin Already On NFL’s Cerebral QB List

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

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.

Redskins running back Tim Hightower has been a homerun threat so far this preseason, gaining 114 yards over the first two games, on just 16 carries.  He has also tacked on another two catches for 15 yards, showing his ability to be productive in all facets of the offense.

Tonight should be the first opportunity for extended playing time for the back, and it will be interesting to see how he carries the load.  One thing that’s certain, however, is his approach and commitment to improve.

Hightower had a phone interview earlier this week with Gregg Rosenthal of PFT Live to explain his road to Washington and how he’s embraced the opportunity.

In his first conversations with the coaching staff and front office, they told him that he would have an opportunity to start and play a lot: Read more »
