Someone shot this snapshot of Robert Griffin III in front of the bust of Sammy Baugh at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

The NFL scheduled the Hall of Fame as part of the 2012 NFL Rookie Symposium, an idea I hope they repeat every year. For Washington Redskins fans, the image of RG3 and Slingin' Sam speaks for itself, so I'll shut up and let you enjoy the photo.

Point after

RG3 told a Cleveland area paper that he expected the Browns to draft him. So did I. So did Browns fans. Mike Holmgren held a news conference for season ticket holders to explain how that happened, going so far to say that he would have matched Washington's trade offer to the Rams if Jeff Fisher hadn't shut down negotiations. I am constantly amazed at the attention Griffin III attracts just by walking around. I hear fewer and fewer voices say that the 'Skins overpaid for him in that trade.

That could change if he is a bust, but nobody expects that. The only association of bust and Griffin yesterday was the Hall of Fame. HAIL!
