Robert Griffin III is entering the NFL with more hype surrounding him than perhaps any prospect in recent memory. Whether he will live up to it remains to be seen, but you can't go far -- or flip through many channels -- without seeing his trademarked initials or personalized nickname. Outspoken Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora thinks we're getting a bit carried away with the Redskins signal-caller. “Who is this RG3 guy you guys keep talking about?’’ Umenyiora said Tuesday on WFAN. “You talking about Bob Griffin? You guys are giving him a cool nickname already and everything. When he does anything in the NFL we’re gonna call him RG3. Right now he’s Bob Griffin." Not exactly catchy, but what you'd expect to hear from a new rival who'll see "Bob" (no, not this guy) up close and personal for many years to come.
