The New York Giants had a ton of trouble with Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III when they faced him over a month ago, and they will have to step up to the challenge again on Monday night. It doesn’t sound like Justin Tuck is looking forward to it very much. “Until I exit stage right, it seems like (Griffin is) going to be a fixture in my dreams and nightmares,” Tuck told reporters earlier this week. The Giants defensive lineman said he watched RG3 lead the Redskins to victory in Dallas on Thanksgiving. Tuck hoped that by some miracle he would see a slower Griffin than the one New York barely defeated five weeks ago, but we all know that didn’t happen. “I was hoping to learn that he would slow down a little bit, but that’s not the case,” he said. “He is one of the best dual threats in our game today, and we’re gonna have our hands full trying to stop that guy.” One thing’s for certain: Griffin has earned the respect of the defending Super Bowl champions. At the start of the season, Osi Umenyiora wouldn’t even give RG3 the courtesy of calling him by his nickname. Less than halfway through the season and Osi was already willing to crown Griffin the best quarterback the Giants have faced all season. In his first season on the big stage, RG3 has quickly earned the right to not be treated like a rookie. Photo credit: Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE
