Photo credit: nydailynews.com For Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, the focus has been to rehab his knee and get back on the field for week one against the Philadelphia Eagles. Robert probably ignores most comments made by others in the media, but when a defensive player makes a “bulletin board” comment just days before that first game, Griffin probably will take notice. Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans came out and made a comment at probably the worst time possible saying: Yeah, I think he’ll be a little rusty. However, Ryans was a bit smarter than former NFC East counterpart Osi Umenyiora who last year decided that RG3 had to earn that “moniker” and would call him “Bob.” Ryans then Photo credit: businessinsider.com clarified what he said by saying: Anybody coming off an injury and not having any reps in live action, I think he’ll be a little rusty. But you can never tell. Some people just got it. I think RGIII’s one of those guys who has it, has what it takes, has that special talent, so it’s not like we can relax and think that he’s not gonna play well. I’m still watching film on him from last year, I still think he has the capabilities to do those things and hurt us defensively if we don’t stand up and stop him. There has been a lot of “talk” surrounding Griffin’s return from knee surgery in just 8 months. Adding fuel to the fire may have been the worst thing Ryans could have done for Griffin’s first game back. RG3 will be amped up for this game as is, but as we saw against the New York Giants last year after Umenyiora’s comments, he will make sure to add a little extra to this game. Monday night at FedEx Field will be an electrifying night for the Redskins fans, as well as Griffin and his teammates as they start the season off where they left it last year, at home.   Follow us on Twitter: @DCSportsKings @kettner_sk   For related stories check out: DC anticipating an AFL team?
