    Anyone Else Tired of Hearing RG3?

    I think it's dumb how someone is allowed to put III on the back of their jersey. The rules were changed specifically for Robert Griffin, as I call him, his name. If I remember correctly,before they changed the rules before this year, the rules were if there is someone with your same last name on your team, you can add your first initial. The only other Griffin on the Redskins is Cedric Griffin, so at best Robert Griffin should only be able to add an R to his jersey, so it would look like R. Griffin, instead of Griffin III. Maybe it's just me but the whole RG3 thing annoys me, when we hear Robert Griffin, we don't think of his dad or grandpa, we think of Robert Griffin the QB for the Redskins, the III is unnecessary.

    Here;s an article with the rule change: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...r-griffin-iii/ sorry, I don't know how to make it a link, you might have to copy paste.

    I'm wondering your thoughts on this, I know this is old news but I just wanted to see if anyone else feels thie same way as I do because it annoys me so much.

    Peace & Go Blue,
    Jason

    RGIII was my favorite player in college football last year. I was heart broken when he went to the Redskins, I really wanted to keep rooting for him. I still love watching him play and he's incredibly down to earth, even with all the hype. I honestly can't help but still like the guy.

    I think he's demonstrated to us all what a special player he is by his play against the Giants. My jaw literally dropped(right before my heart sank) on that 4th and 10 he converted after escaping pressure. The scary thing is he's only going to get better. I think he'll be the best QB in the league before long. He's going to be a thorn in our side for the next 8-12 years.

    RGIII is infuriating to watch as a Giants fan, but utterly delightful to watch as a football fan. He's honestly still one of my favorite football players and I find myself rooting for him whenever he's not playing the Giants (not since the Redskins got serious in the playoff race). I wish he wasn't a Redskin.

    I live down here in DC, and it's crazy the attention he's getting.

    However, I hate to admit it, but he's the real deal-so get use to it. Injuries are the only thing that's going to stop him now...He is what Vick with a good work ethic and leadership skills.

Pretty soon dudes going to have to learn how to play from the pocket look at what happened to him on Sunday. One last thing yes the overhyping off this guy is sickening. I was watching ESPN this week and you would've thought he made the game tying touchdown and run. They gave Kurt Cousins no love at all.
    Well, yeah. I guess it's a relative term. I think he's pretty grounded compared to the rest of the players out there.

    He's extremely marketable. I just wish the media would give his defense more props for what they have done in recent weeks because it's quite insulting to them the way they make it out to be all RG3.

    I agree....this league jumped the shark a long time ago.

    Could you imagine if Eli didnt hit that pass deep to Cruz in the first matchup? Remember how RG3 converted that 4th and 10 on their own 10 to start that drive before and then hit Moss on the TD. That would of been peek of Tebow type hype.

    Did I say that was a bad thing?? No, all great athletes are not humble at all, but when someone says he is I'm going to call them out. I agree with you, you need to be a little prideful to be a great player. Eli has always been humbled in defeat and with winning so I really don't know what your talking about?? Relax dude we get your an RG3 fanboy, I'm not dissing your boy.

    Yup. They all can't be Eli Manning or Derek Jeter or Mariano Rivera. Even Victor Cruz's humbleness is wearing thin. His dancing, throwing up the ROC, his over celebrating first downs. I don't like it, but it is what it is.
