For Robert Griffin III, or RGIII because Federal law now mandates you must always refer to him as RGIII and only RGIII, and the Washington NFL team, the first three weeks have been a nightmare. An 0-3 start, and a horrific defense that got shredded by Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions yesterday. Stafford, who put up nearly four bills passing on them, isn’t the only one exploiting Washington’s D.
Last year’s NFC East champions have given up at least 27 points in every game this year. So cut some RGIII some slack, it’s not all his fault, and remember he doesn’t have control over the side of the ball.
Tom Jackson of ESPN: “Everybody has to pick up the slack when your star is injured. That’s what is happening to RGIIi now. How would he benefit if you had a solid run-game? He would be better protected … The football team is to blame. In particular, the defensive side of the ball which is putting so much pressure on him to have to do so much so early after this injury.”
