QB Robert Griffin III Impresses On First Day Of Practice With Redskins Vets
On Monday at Redskins Park, the Robert Griffin III era got off to a good start with full-squad organized team activities (OTAs) according to Don Banks of SI.com. "This is early, and he's got a long way to go,'' Redskins receiver Santana Moss said. "But just off what he's shown thus far, you can be excited knowing that if he's not going to be that guy that first year, he's going to be that guy soon. Right now he's been doing everything that we expect. He's looking sharp." Fellow Washington receiver Pierre Garcon, the ex-Colt who knows a little something about what a franchise quarterback is all about
: "He doesn't look like a rookie. He's throwing and he's putting the ball where it needs to be. He's doing a great job. He's accurate on his deep ball and everywhere else.'' "With rookie mini-camp [two weeks ago], you're more there to try to show coach: 'Hey, you know, you drafted me. I'm as advertised,''' Griffin said after the practice. "But when you're with the vets, it's more, 'I can help this team win,' and show them why coach has so much confidence in you. So yeah, it's a little bit more pressure, but to come out and put helmets on and play football now is pretty simple.'' "You can obviously see the maturity, the leadership, all the intangibles you would like in your quarterback,'' London Fletcher said. "He's very humble, very respectful, and not coming in feeling like he's entitled to anything. He's willing to work, he works hard, he's here early, and he's in the playbook. A lot of different things that, believe it or not, there are some first-round draft picks, especially some high guys, they come in and feel like things should be given to them. That's not the case with him. "He has an aura about himself that people want to gravitate to him, just get to know him, and talk to him. You can see why everyone felt so highly about him.''
