Robert Griffin III was the hottest buzz around the NFL Draft and now he’s the focus of the Washington Redskins as they begin training camp this week.
The Redskins have been mired by several question marks for quite some time now. When will the team switch coaches again? Who will be the quarterback to finally lead the team? Will the team ever make a comeback?
And now, the ‘Skins are hoping that their questions have been answered. With their acquisition of the second pick in the first round of the NFL Draft, the team is hoping to rebuild the once popular and successful franchise. Although that time seems far beyond memory, the Redskins are pushing past that and putting all of their energy into getting RG3 ready in training camp.
Coach Mike Shanahan has a lot on the line here. If he should come up with a record similar to last season’s 5-11 result, then there’s a good chance he could be saying goodbye to Washington.
The Redskins are counting on Griffin and his superstar socks to lead the team. Here’s the latest buzz on how the rookie quarterback is measuring up.
