There is no discounting the impact Robert Griffin III's injury has on the Washington Redskins organization. Some reports have him becoming a different player, while others predict a career full of injuries that will derail his superstar ascent.
With or without the now-famed RG3, the Washington Redskins have to be considered favorites to repeat as NFC East champions.
It goes beyond just the quarterback position, which will be handled much differently if Griffin isn't the starter on opening day. The Redskins, for a change, built a team.
While they may have invested a great deal in Griffin, he is not the only player making a difference for the Redskins or the only factor in why they're favorites for the division crown next season.
