  • Robert Griffin has mediocre game...hailed king

    Look, I get this guy is elusive and he is a great up and coming talent, but he puts up mediocre stats against our Giants and he's basically hailed the king of the NFL. The guy put up 13-21 and 163 yards with 1 touchdown. To me that's not even worthy of an article, yet it's 7:00 in the morning and I've come across 3 articles already just on my phone, and I haven't even picked up the paper yet. The lovefest this guy received last night on ESPN was sickening, I felt like throwing my remote through the television. They got lucky on a few plays that went their way. I get the argument that he did just enough to get his team a victory, but I'm not buying into this RG111 hype. I get that the Redskins haven't had anything worth talking about for the last decade, but please media, let it go, there is far more talented rookie QB's to talk about every freaking day. Don't mind me, just venting.
    Not the actual Man, Myth, Legend....Just a Giant fan since birth, I come in peace

    In about 5 to 7 years he'll be another Michael Vick. TO machine; gun shy from taking too many hits. That's just the life of a NFL running QB. Too many have come & gone. There 1st TD was a fumbled run for TD. How many times can you bank on that?

      You guys are nuts. Vick never in his life could pass the way this kid can. He's also a lot smarter than Vick. Vick couldn't identify a single high safety look if it hit him in the face!

        In his prime Vick could make every throw. The Giants offense did more to help Washington win last night more than RG3 did.

          Morris was their key last night not RGIII. He look more like RG2 last night

            Yeah, we actually outscored them 4-3 in scoring plays and their one TD was a freak of a nature fumble recovery.

            RG3 didn't have a monster game nor did he somehow single handedly beat the Giants. Yeah they won and I give them credit for putting up the points and holding the Giants offense off the field in the last 4 minutes, but this wasn't a once in a lifetime performance by the kid they call RGIII.

              What does he do that's smarter than Vick? Mostly looks like one read to me.

                actually....he had a poor day at the office and beat us anyway.

                  His best play last night was a fumble.

                    Skins fan here an I told you what you would see. We ate a different team at home. We always go mad conservative. I wouldn't say that you stopped him because we didn't try to open it up. I hate it an I think we won't win a SB unless Shanny stops that. On the road its the RG3 show. At home its Morris with conservative passes. You would think it that it would be the other way around but its not.Also though, let's be real. It's not like your O sucked and he did nothing. He moved the ball but the D couldn't get off the field. U can't put up yards without the ball. I read somewhere that in the first 3 quarters we only had 26 offensive plays. That's unheard of. And that wasn't because our O sucked. U guys just controlled the clock an morris fumbled

                      Actually Vick didn't become a good passer until after he left prison. Don't know how he morphed into a good passer, but he did. During his years in Atlanta, he was fast and elusive as heck.

                        Also the hype is because he led us all year and is the catalyst behind our resurgence. Everything we do is still based off his skillset. U lose all credibility when u say there are far more talented rookie QB's. That's just hate

                          I guess I am the only Giant fan that can realize that it's not about QB numbers with Griffin. His style of play is incredibly difficult to defend. Especially with how our defense is built. We are built around our speed rushers at DE, and because of this we have slower LB's that arent much of a factor. Well our DE's are stuck playing the contain game against this offense. And when they don't contain, we saw what happened with two big plays last night, one on JPP and one on Osi. I am not saying I have the answer but this team is gonna have to figure out an answer for the Skins offense, because its only gonna get better.

                            It will be an interesting draft that's for sure.

                              Thats a negative on the hate part sir. What about Andrew Luck who's having a heck of year leading the Cults back. We should all be talking about him. You guys should be happy you have a QB finally that you can get hyped about, but the media is over blowing that game last night, having him sit on the podium for a post game interview like he's the hero that saved the game. Eli at times looked a hell of a lot better than Griffin IMHO if you ask me, or anyone else for that matter.
