The Washington Redskins have moved heaven and draft picks to position themselves to land Robert Griffin III, the quarterback we here in Texas affectionately like to call Superman. Nor did we cape him lightly. He earned that moniker by winning at a Baylor program many felt beyond help. The thing about the cape, or even just the socks with the cape on them, is you think you are invincible. And as my fifth-grade nephew Max Perez recently reminded me, even Superman has his weaknesses.
