This Given Sunday:
After Robert Griffin III's spectacular debut on Sunday for the Redskins in their 40-32 win over the Saints, fans in Washington are understandably giddy about their new signal caller, but this has led to a new trend in the style of Tebowing...and predictably, it's called Griffining.
During Sunday's game, Griffin raised his arms with one finger on each stretched to the air, while sitting down after a touchdown. This has led to a host of pictures of fans Griffining, which Redskins blog Burgundy Blog has been retweeting. The results seem...a little forced.
So....sitting down with your fingers in the air is some sort of trend now? It seems a little silly to me. Hell, it actually reminds me of Richard Nixon.
I don't think this is going to catch on like Tebowing did. Is anyone really going to just drop down to their ass in the middle of a public area and stick their fingers in the air? Dare I say it, but Tebowing almost seems more natural. No players are going to s...

It was a perfect day for rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III who had an amazing debut by throwing for 320 yards and two touchdowns as the Washington Redskins upset the New Orleans Saints 40-32, but the NFL front office isn’t happy with him. Before the game on Sunday, Griffin wrote the word “Heart” on the left [...]
Prepare to be annoyed. For those of you who despise the whole "Tebowing" concept, a new phenomenon could soon bug you this football season. It's apparently called "Griffining."

No doubt about it—Robert Griffin III started his career with a bang on Sunday, with 320 yards, 2 TD passes with no interceptions, and 10 rushes for 48 yards (the gaudy fantasy stats), not to mention a 73% completion percentage, a 139.9 QB rating and most importantly, a win.
The start (and the hype) remind me of a quarterback that I doubted coming into the league last year, and...

Rookie quarterbacks were the headliners of Week 1 — quick summary: Robert Griffin III was great, Andrew Luck didn’t suck, Brandon Weeden was worse...
It’s a bad game when the Saints MVP candidate is Astroturf, as it had a better shot of tripping up Robert Griffin III than its defense. I must hand it to RGIII, however. He looked mature in his first outing and in time will emerge as a smarter, more controlled version of Michael Vick. And, that’s gonna be dangerous for all us non-Redskins football fans. Goodness gracious, could...

By now I am sure you are aware that the Washington Redskins went marching into Saints territory and did something that no team was able to do last year — win in New Orleans — and did it in a rather strong fashion.
The much anticipated debut of Robert Griffin III lived up to everyone in Redskins Nation’s...

RG3 also hit Aldrick Robinson for a 5-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter.
Jerry Jones noted Tuesday that the Washington Redskins nearly beat the Cowboys twice last season, "without really acceptable quarterbacking."
The Redskins' defense made the difference, Jones said.
The Cowboys defeated the Redskins 18-16 in Week 3 and needed overtime for a 27-24 victory in Week 11.
In those two games, Redskins quarterback Rex Grossman was a combined...
It was the first week of the 2012 NFL season, and there was plenty to be excited about. There were great match-ups across the board, to go along with many fascinating story lines. We got to witness Peyton Manning’s debut as the Broncos quarterback, Cowboys and Giants (after lots of trash talking), Mark Sanchez’s season opener with the dramatic filled Jets, and five rookie...
