This is a quarterback-driven league. If you want to win in the NFL, then you need a premier quarterback to lead the way.
After his Heisman season at Baylor, the Redskins' front office gave up the house to put the team in position to select Griffin.
The trade to acquire the second overall pick in the NFL draft came under much scrutiny. The Redskins gave up three first-round picks to the St. Louis Rams, as well as their 2012 second-round pick.
Since then, Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen have looked like geniuses, as Griffin is playing at an All-Pro level and has single-handedly transformed the foundation of the franchise.
Yelling “RGIII!” throughout the area is a common occurrence at your local watering holes, people of all ages and races are sporting their No. 10 jerseys and ESPN analyst Rob Parker is not appreciated in this area.
Griffin has ignited a fanbase with his infectious personality, demeanor and obvious stellar play on the field.
The Redskins might not be the best team in football, but they are the most exciting one.
