Robert Griffin III
St. Louis Rams
New York Jets
The St. Louis Rams made a franchise changing choice shortly before the 2012 NFL draft. Sitting there with the second overall pick in the draft, they had the chance to draft Robert Griffin III. However, just two years earlier on that very same night, the Rams took Sam Bradford with the first overall pick.
So, the Rams were stuck. Do they draft RG3 and try and trade Bradford? Or do they stick with the man they spent a No. 1 overall draft pick on, and trade out of the second spot? As we all know, they chose the latter.
It wasn’t hard finding a suitor for RG3. The deal ended up being with the Washington Redskins, who gave their sixth overall pick in the 2012 draft, their second rounder in the 2012 draft, and 2013 and 2014 first round picks.
Not a bad haul, right? The jury is still out on the players the Rams received, seeing as Michael Brockers, Janoris Jenkins, and Alec Ogletree are still young and have chances to contribute. They still haven’t even spent the 2014 first round pick, ...

AROUND THE WEB
Washington Redskins fans experienced some deja vu on Sunday afternoon as they watched Robert Griffin III hit the ground and clutch his knee, but the diagnosis this time around is much more positive than it was in 2012.
RGIII left the game against the Broncos in the fourth quarter after the quarterback was leveled by Denver defensive lineman Terrance Knighton. Griffin was able to...
Robert Griffin III injured his left knee which is not the knee that kept him out the past 10 months. He was leveled in the pocket by Broncos’ defensive lineman, Terrance Knighton. Griffin threw the ball as he was hit, and the pass was picked off by Rahim Moore, but with the Broncos already up […]
Robert Griffin III's right knee was surgically repaired and rehabbed back to full strength during this past offseason. His left knee prevented him from finishing Sunday's 45-21 loss to the Broncos.
The second-year quarterback was knocked out in the fourth quarter and was immediately listed as questionable to return. He never did.
Head coach Mike Shanahan said that Griffin...
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III left Sunday’s 45-21 loss to the Denver Broncos in the fourth quarter with a left knee injury and did not return. Griffin suffered the injury when he took a hit on a pass that ended up being intercepted.
Despite holding Griffin out for the remainder of the game, head coach Mike Shanahan says RGIII was cleared to return by the Redskins’...
Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media that Robert Griffin III could have come back into Sunday’s game against the Broncos after he injured his left knee, but they decided to keep him out.
Mike Shanahan: Robert Griffin is okay. The doctors cleared him to go back into the game but Shanahan held him out based on the score.

Although they have three wins, the St. Louis Rams are one of the worst teams in football, and despite what some may consider a moral victory over the far superior Seattle Seahawks, the Rams are still struggling to remain competitive.
The single biggest problem ailing the Rams continues to be a lackluster offensive attack. Their defense has given them the opportunity to win some...
Did you know that Robert Griffin III participated in the Marine Corps Marathon in the nation's capital on Saturday?
Well, not really. It was merely an imposter dressed as the Washington Redskins star quarterback.
Furthermore, the man ran the marathon while juggling three footballs.
Why? Who knows. But it does make for an interesting spectacle to say the least.

Keys to a Seahawks victory
This is one of those Seahawks games that scare me. The Rams have lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL and must start backup Kellen Clemens. Clemens will be starting for the 13th time in his 9-year career.
Heading into Monday night’s game he has a career record of 4-8 as a starter, including a 0-3...
According to Chuck Carroll of CBS DC, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III suffered an injury to his left knee during Sunday’s loss to the Broncos.
The good news is that it’s not his surgically repaired right knee.
The biggest concern for the Washington Redskins Sunday isn’t a 45-21 drubbing at the hands of the Denver Broncos. It is the health of Robert Griffin...
Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Robert Griffin III is “fine” and he expects the dynamic quarterback to practice on Wednesday. The 23-year-old Griffin hurt his left knee in Sunday’s 45-21 loss to Broncos in Denver. Still recovering from January’s reconstructive surgery to repair the ACL and LCL ligaments in his right knee, Griffin’s displayed horrific footwork...
What a first half of football. Washington had a 7-7 tie and then came out at half time and ran up a 21-7 lead. It all collapsed from there. The Redskins mysteriously abandoned a run game that led to the 21-7 lead, Denver teed off on QB Robert Griffin III and routed Washington 45-21. Here […]
Start RGIII against the Broncos. Robert Griffin III seems to be returning to form. He is poised to repeat his second half performance from 2012. ESPN notes that RGIII is at 100% for the first time this year. The Broncos are the only team in the NFL who gives up over 350 yards per game to opposing QBs. This is mostly because teams who play Denver are playing from behind, but nonetheless...
The Bottom Line: Longing for 2012 won't help us in the present
Nothing kills a football blog like the home team losing.
It kills blogs two ways. Readers don't want to read why their team is losing. They want to read how good the team is and why they will win the next game.
Bloggers don't want to write about why the team is losing either. Rants carry only...
