The story behind RG3's name is as good as his game

Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Third and Gold

I still manage to be impressed everytime I hear/read about who our next quarterback is and what he's made of. I don't have an exerpt or favorite part, because I liked the entire thing.

What box doesn't he check at this point?
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

:up: Thanks to whichever staffer made this admin call. I had a hard time deciding between starting thread #200 about RG3 or adding to an existing one.

Great read.

That's one special boy we're about to draft, it feels like it's all written in the stars for him and hopefully for us.

Just a week to go now...

This is a great article. Thanks for passing it along, because I definitely would have missed it otherwise.

Excellent... the story of his dad feeling unable to live up to the standard set by HIS father felt very personal for me... every time I log into THN, it seems I find another reason to love this young man's story...

Young Mr Griffin may be brewing into the perfect storm of intelligence, awareness, talent, humor, presence, leadership, charisma, and "it".

Redskins fans... it's almost time to strap it up... because this may be a ride like we haven't experienced in ages...

Agreed, agreed, agreed. I've not had this much of an unequivocal positive feeling about a skin (to be or otherwise). . . EVER. Not to disparage Sean Taylor's effect in any way, but this is a different position and there's not one single downside regarding him. CAN'T. WAIT.

75 years ago, the Redskins moved to Washington DC and were led to a championship by a rookie qbs from Texas Christian University named Sammy Baugh. Now we are hoping upon hope that another Texas qb will lead us to victory. May RG3 prove even half the leader Baugh was. If so, we will return to preeminence.(and superbowls)

great read - THANKS

I also almost did not read it - thanks again
Robert Griffin will become a really good QB he's talented and smart

hopefully Kirk Cousins can make things happen till RG3 is ready to play again
