Robert Griffin III continued to impress fans and players as his very solid rookie campaign continued this past Sunday. RGIII tossed for 258 yards, with two touchdowns and a lone interception on 20-for-28 passing and also scampered for 89 yards on 9 carries with one fumble. Prior to the season, defensive end Osi Umenyiora said he would call Griffin “Bob” until the rookie QB proved himself, but this week said Griffin’s rightful name was, “Sir Robert Griffin III,” after watching him put up highlights during the first six weeks of the season… “That guy is flat-out unbelievable,” Umenyiora told reporters in the locker room. “That’s the best QB we’ve played this year.” Usenyiora was not the only NY Giant who was impressed with the rookie. Said fellow end Justin Tuck, “[Griffin] takes away from your enthusiasm for the game a little bit,” as a defensive player. Defensive end Chris Canty added, “He’s faster in person than he is on tape. He’s very, very fast. He’s a very talented young man. He’s going to have a lot of success in this league.” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said, “He looks like the fastest guy on tape and he’s certainly the fastest guy on the field. When he pulls the ball down, when you break down contain and he goes outside, you are just praying someone is going to run him out of bounds.” via Washington Post Article found on: Cosby Sweaters
