It may not be a good idea to put the already-fragile future of your franchise in compromising situations against a defense known to be head hunters. The Redskins learned the hard way.
Robert Griffin III lined up at wide receiver and tried to haul in a pass from wide receiver Josh Morgan, but was called for offensive pass interference before taking a vicious lick from Steelers safety Ryan Clark. The helmet-to-helmet shot from Clark wasn't penalized, but since Griffin was a defenseless player, the league could still review it and fine the Steeler.
Clark left the game later with a concussion on a collision with Redskins running back Alfred Morris. Clark has been disciplined by the league before for big hits, including $15,000 and $40,000 fines in consecutive weeks in 2011.
The Redskins lost the game 27-12 to Pittsburgh. Griffin missed time earlier in the season with a concussion and it may be wise to be more careful with the rookie quarterback.

In the stock market, much like fantasy football, you want to buy low and sell high. Using that philosophy, is it now time to consider trading Washington Redskins rookie QB Robert Griffin III? I believe it is. Griffin has had a remarkable run as a rookie, showing exceptional promise for his career, but it’s time to maximize his performances on the field and cash in by trading the...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark was ruled out after taking a hard hit in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. Clark sustained a concussion, according to NFL.com. The Steelers led 27-9 at the end of the third quarter.
In an attempt to get something going against the Pittsburgh Steelers offensively on Sunday, Mike Shanahan decided it would be a good idea to try a little trickery with Robert Griffin III. The Washington Redskins called for a play that appeared to be a reverse to receiver Josh Morgan, but instead Morgan became the quarterback and Griffin the receiver. And RG3 got lit up by Steelers...
We all know that RG3 infectious smile, confident tone we hear in the press conferences win or lose. Well check out this throwback picture of Robert Griffin III from high school. Remind you of anybody?
My first thought, that lovable geeky character, Bowfinger.
All in good fun, but thank goodness RG3 got that hair twisted up, don’t know how much of the shag fro we could’ve taken.
In what will be a rare occurance to ever happen in National Football League history, the past two Heisman Trophy winners will meet at FedEx Field in Washington, DC next Sunday as the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner in Robert Griffin, III of the Washington Redskins will play host to the 2010 winner of college football’s most prestigious award in Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers.

There was some great quarterback play Sunday and it didn't come from the well talked about, and highly hyped, Washington Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III as Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was head and shoulders better than the one that they call RG3 at Heinz Field.

All the hype coming into this one was about the Redskins sensational rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III (and the Steelers 1934 throwback uniforms). Last week I wrote about Dick LeBeau and what the Steelers might do to slow him and the Redskins offense down. Mission accomplished. No doubt RGIII was hurt by drops from his receivers, but...
PITTSBURGH -- Robert Griffin III might be the freshly anointed one, but Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers showed the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback what an elite performance looks like. Roethlisberger was an efficient 24 of 33 for 222 yards and three touchdowns, Jonathan Dwyer carried 17 times for 107 yards, and Pittsburgh's defense stymied Griffin to win...
