Found June 20, 2013 on Blog So Hard Sports:

Along with coach Mike Shanahan, Robert Griffin III has faced a huge amount of criticism from numerous amounts of people, whether it is critics, media, or players and coaches around the league. When RGIII sprained his LCL on December 9th against the Ravens, he returned to the game for at least 4 plays. We all understand that he is the quarterback of the Redskins future and has the ability to be one of the best of the league, but there are many instances where the “critics” can be wrong at times. People ignore that him coming back in the game was an act of heroism, whether it happened or not. The read-option was the bread and butter of Washington’s offense last year and looks to be that way as long as Griffin is under center. What these “critics” aren’t realizing is that when Griffin took hard hits last year, they weren’t because of the option like everyone says it to be. He was injured when the pocket broke down and no receivers were open, therefore he had to scramble and attempt to make a play for the offense. Robert has been said to be “superhuman” and is known to recover fast, with his past injuries at Baylor. It seems as though people are jealous of the fact that he’s such a dynamic player and is able to recover at a quick rate. One thing I think RGIII needs to learn is stay away from the media somewhat. Every interview, he is asked about his knee and how its coming along, he gives them the answer of the process is going well and he feels great, but some take it as if he’s talking about it too much, even if he is just answering their question. I’m sure he would know how he feels before the critics would. Donovan McNabb, Redskins quarterback in 2010, had one of his least productive years of his career here in Washington. When Griffin was named the target of the Redskins for the 2012 Draft after trading up, Donovan had no faith in him at all and thought he wouldn’t perform as well. After the great season Griffin had, he all of a sudden became a “fan”. He thinks Griffin has too much going on for an offseason and needs to keep quiet a little. Keeping quiet is something McNabb is very good at, seeing as though he did it in Philly. Robert has the right to speak up, and shouldn’t listen to a person whose career best numbers aren’t even as good as Griffin’s first year. I personally think Griffin will be ready to go Week 1. I also think that everything he has done both on and off the field doesn’t deserve the criticism he so often receives. He’s doing what he has to do this offseason to better himself, and I look forward to another productive season from the running game, effective because of Robert Griffin III.
