Found May 08, 2012 on Redskins Hog Heaven:
Andrew Strickert is my long time blogging colleague who covers the Tennessee Titans for Total Titans on the Bloguin Network. Andrew overheard an assessment of Robert Griffin III and his NFL prospects that he thought would interest Washington Redskins fans — not that Redskins fans need convincing about RG3. We thought it was good enough to turn into a guest post. Read on. Mike Detillier, an analyst for Titans Radio, also authors/produces the M&D Draft Report and also works in some type of capacity for both the Saints and LSU, so you can consider him a draft/scouting expert of sorts. For the last six months or so, I've heard him say multiple times that the highest grade he has ever given a quarterback in 27 years has been to Andrew Luck (his previous highest grade went to Troy Aikman.) This weekend on Titans Radio he repeated that, but with a few extra nuggets.  He said that RG III had the sixth highest grade he had ever given and Peyton Manning had the third highest.  He d...

RG3 trademarking his name

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is a pretty smart dude and has decided to trademark his name and other nicknames he goes by.

Report: RG3 trademarks name, nicknames

When the Washington Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III with the second pick of the NFL Draft, they knew they had their new franchise quarterback. The team sees dollar signs in their new quarterback, and Griffin shares that same sentiment. Shortly after being drafted, Griffin hired an attorney and created an LLC, named Thr3escompany, according to a report by USA Today. Griffin...

RG3 has earned his trademarks

The person was Robert Griffin III, the phenomenon was RG3. If you used the number it sounded like a sports car. If you used the Roman numerals it looked like an event. Either way, it was the truth. You may have heard the news Griffin III is trademarking both of those symbols. People have been hocking RG3 stuff all over Washington, D.C. since the Redskins took the former Baylor...

Shanahan Names Robert Griffin III The Starter

The Washington Redskins are at a crossroads. Saying the team, and in particular Head Coach Mike Shanahan, are putting all their eggs in one basket is an understatement. Only one week after trading up in the first round, Shanahan has named Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III the number one quarterback. Washington gave St. Louis their first and second round picks this year and...

All eyes on RG3 at Redskins minicamp

Robert Griffin III stood out with his bright yellow cleats, but that didn't matter. Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, coach Mike Shanahan and the horde of media members would have honed in on the future of the franchise anyway. It was the third and final day of the Redskins' rookie minicamp Sunday, and the reigning Heisman Trophy winner -- the second overall pick in...

Robert Griffin III is trademarking his life

The new starting QB for the Washington Redskins is acting quickly on his fame, and has already put the wheels in motion to profit off himself. There are several reports that Griffin hired an attorney almost [...]

Are the Redskins Setting Robert Griffin III Up to Fail?

“He’s the starter. Period. Any time you pick a player with the second pick of the draft and you give up another two No. 1’s and No. 2 and you move up four spots, you’ve got a gam eplan in mind. We’re going to adjust our system to what he feels comfortable with, and we’ll watch him grow, and we’ll do what we feel like he does the best.” With the above statement...

Self-endorser: RG3 files trademark applications

Robert Griffin III could soon capitalize on his booming popularity in the nation's capital and beyond.

Griffin'...

We have perhaps our first Redskins/RG3 tattoo, folks (photo)

Courtesy of Dan Steinberg over at D.C. Sports Bog comes this photo of what at the very least likely the first photo to emerge online of a Washington Redskins fan who has gone ahead and got himself some Robert Griffin III tattoo goodness etched into his skin. Obviously, this fellow believes that the team has [...]

Washington Redskins: Did Drafting Kirk Cousins Make Sense?

In 2011, former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousin led Michigan State to play against Wisconsin in the first ever Big 10 Championship.  In a draft that was filled with star quarterbacks like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Ryan Tannehill and Brandon Weeden, Cousins was one of the quarterbacks that went on the back burner. After being drafted with the seventh pick in the fourth...

Mike Shanahan confirmed what we already knew, RG3 is No. 1.

Washington Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan said the only thing I wanted to hear about Robert Griffin III, "He's the starter, period," Shanahan stated in today's press conference following the Rookie mini-camp. Then Shanahan got into words that coaches who draft young quarterbacks always say. Developing Griffin is going to take time. Blah blah blah and yada yada...
