Packer Fans United:
Robert Griffin III
San Francisco 49ers
Green Bay Packers
New England Patriots
Fans of the Green Bay Packers have had the last week to wail and nash our collective teeth over the loss (again...third in a row) to the San Francisco 49ers. It's another week, another game, and another read-option quarterback who may -- or may not -- give the Packers defense trouble. In the season home opener at Lambeau Field today, the Packers will see if they can keep QB Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins from having them start the season at 0-2.This photo of Lambeau Field is courtesy of TripAdvisorIf that happens, Packer fans, the road to the Super Bowl becomes very difficult indeed. According to people who's job it is to calculate such odds (that would not be me, just to be clear), only 22 NFL teams since 1990 (11.5 percent) have made the playoffs after starting 0-2. Only three teams that opened the season 0-2 have won the Super Bowl: the 1993 Dallas Cowboys, the 2001 New England Patriots and the 2007 New York Giants.So, is this a must win for the Packers? I...
BEST OF MAXIM
After tearing his ACL at the end of last season, it’s obvious that Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III does not have the same mobility he did when he lit the NFL on fire in his rookie year. But an intern at FOX Sports is yearning for RGIII’s moves. So much so, that he (or she) couldn’t get Bobby Griffin out of his (or her) head Sunday while running the bottom line....
In a moment of thought late in the Redskins 38-20 defeat to the Green Bay Packers, a unnamed teammate told Robert Griffin III that the quarterback may need to change and become a more vocal and outspoken leader in an attempt to spark better execution with the team. Since becoming a Washington Redskins player, Griffin [...]
The Redskins lost to the Packers on Sunday, and looked pretty bad doing it. Led by quarterback Robert Griffin III, Washington failed to get on the scoreboard until almost eight minutes into the third quarter, were out-possessed by almost five full minutes and converted only three of 11 attempts on third down.
Don’t saddle Griffin with all the blame for the loss, though. Hall of...
Ron Jaworski is at it again.
On the heels of Robert Griffin III looking absolutely rusty in his return to action on Monday night, ESPN analyst and former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski says RG3′s throwing mechanics are flawed because he’s still recovering from his injury.
Jaworski said it’s enough of a problem to be a cause for concern.
“His mechanics are flawed right now...
After starting the season 0-2, there are rumblings of discontent among Redskins fans. Some have openly clamored for the team’s young star quarterback, Robert Griffin III, to be benched in favor of backup Kirk Cousins, at least until Griffin is 100% healthy. The situation has the potential to go from mildly disruptive to outright explosive if the Redskins can’t turn it around...
The Redskins are 0-2 and in both games, Robert Griffin III played the same way: horribly in the 1st half only to recover in the 2nd half. Unfortunately, the Redskins have been unable to overcome Griffin III’s horrible play in the 1st half and that’s why they’re winless at the moment.
Normally when a quarterback is returning from major knee surgery like Griffin III, patience...
When Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III stepped on the field for the first time since blowing out his knee in January he looked like a guy whose recovery is still a work in progress rather than a player who is all the way back.
That’s the word from former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski who said on ESPN’s NFL Matchup that Griffin isn’t throwing the ball well because he’s...
Redskins QB Robert Griffin III rebounded from a second straight poor first half to finish with 320 yards and three touchdowns Sunday at Green Bay.Fantasy Spin:Griffin has thrown for zero first-half touchdowns and five second-half scores through two games. The the Redskins' defense doesn't get things together, Griffin will be able to continue to compile gaudy garbage-time stats.
A quarterback known mostly for his mobility sat back and picked apart the Green Bay Packers' defense through the air last week, leaving half of the team's defensive game plan in ruins.
Not much went according to plan for Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins in their opener either, mainly due to their once-dynamic running game being held in check.
Green Bay faces...
Someone actually asked Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan whether or not the team was considering the idea of benching quarterback Robert Griffin III.
Griffin has struggled to start the season and the Redskins have fallen to 0-2. Additionally a lot of the Redskins struggles can be traced back to a defense which has been torched in the first half for two consecutive...
Mike Shanahan says the Washington Redskins' poor start is a ''temporary setback'' and that he has no plans to sit Robert Griffin III.
Griffin says maybe he needs to be more of a ''stern leader.''
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall says the next opponent is ''probably smiling right now looking at our defense.''
Linebacker London Fletcher...
