Robert Griffin III was so impressive during the first half of Thursday’s Thanksgiving game against the Dallas Cowboys that FOX NFL analyst Jimmy Johnson called him the most valuable player in the NFL.
RG3 and the Washington Redskins lit up the Cowboys with 28 points in the second quarter to go up 28-3. The offense scored on four straight drives, including a touchdown pass from Griffin with 10 seconds left in the half.
“As a coach, you look at the offense, you look at the defense, you look at special teams. The one thing you don’t account for is the most valuable player in the entire National Football League,” Johnson said.
“Robert Griffin III, he’s got the poise, he’s got the accuracy, [he can fit throws] into a window. I think he’s the most valuable player in the National Football League. He is that good. As a rookie, it’s amazing. … I haven’t seen anything like this.”
Michael Strahan was equally impressed by Griffin, and even said something that could upset some of his former Giants
