Found April 20, 2012 on Pro Football Zone:

NFL prospect Robert Griffin III has heard nothing but praise when it comes to his potential as an NFL quarterback. Then yesterday it was reported that an unnamed scout has told said that he’s “selfish.”

Griffin responded on his Twitter account by saying that doubters only give him power.

I’m fueled by faith family & what I represent. Small town kids, Military, & Kids dreaming everywhere. Doubters increase the power of my fuel

I find it very interesting that the only negative thing anyone has had to say about Griffin is the fact that he is “selfish.” Aren’t most super stars selfish for the reason that they want the ball in order to make plays to help their team win games. If that’s the only bad thing any one can say right now, the Redskins don’t have anything to worry about when they draft him second overall next week.
