Robert Griffin III has apparently earned the respect of Osi Umenyiora.
The Giants defensive end didn't buy into the hype of the Redskins rookie quarterback prior to the season, and thus said he'd only refer to the Heisman Trophy winner as "Bob."
However, as the two NFC East teams get ready to battle on Sunday, Umenyiora is giving Griffin some...
That, via the Redskins’ Instagram account, is a Robert Griffin III tattoo, among many, many other Redskins- and animal-themed tattoos. More specifically, it’s a Griffining tattoo, which is a bold statement, though perhaps not so bold as a Joe Theismann tattoo.
And this is your open thread for the Redskins’ first NFC East game of the 2012 season. It’s kind of a big one.
