Robert Griffin III
When the Washington Redskins gave up a lot to move up to select Robert Griffin III with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, many were skeptical. But through the first quarter of the 2012 NFL season, Griffin III has eased the minds of the Redskins after helping them get off to a 2-2 start. Simply put, Griffin III has been the most impressive player through the first four games of the season.
And by that, I mean that RG3 has been the most impressive player in the entire NFL, not just on the Redskins. He has made that big of a difference.
Washington has scored the second most points in the NFC through the first four games. Unfortunately, they have allowed the second most. That will contribute to up and down games, as well as an up and down season. It is also why the team is 2-2 instead of possibly 3-1 or even 4-0.
Of course, if it were not for Griffin III, the Redskins would probably be staring at a winless record.
As was the case with the Baylor Bears in college football las...

Griffining has not caught on as much as we expected it to after it was introduced following Robert Griffin III’s stellar debut against the Saints this season.

The Washington Redskins beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24-22 on a last second, Billy Cundiff fake missed field goal attempt that accidently passed within inches inside the left upright. The Redskins were shocked, but not nearly as much as they were when Cundiff missed three field goal attempts during the game.
