Robert Griffin III’s Recovery Signifies Progress for Washington Redskins
The collective heart of the Washington Redskins’ rabid fan base skipped more than a few beats during the Redskins’ 24-14 NFC Wild Card loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Superstar rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III was helped off the field after aggravating his injured right knee. It was feared that the man recruited to save this perennial doormat of a franchise may never play again.
Thoughts of Griffin III’s demise are grossly exaggerated. Famed surgeon Dr. James Andrews states that the man known as “RG3” is well ahead of schedule in his recovery. Griffin III is putting in six to eight hours a day rehabbing his right knee in an effort to return to the field in 2013. While reserve quarterback Kirk Cousins has proven to be capable of leading the offense, he is not the long term answer at quarterback in Washington.
But I digress. RG3’s determination to get back on the field in 2013 is a prime example that the Redskins are heading in the right direction. Griffin III’s approach to the game is a far cry for the recent history of big names wanting to change the losing aura in Washington. Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth immediately come to mind. McNabb and Haynesworth were saddled with reputations for having questionable work ethics. Under head coach Mike Shanahan, that’s the best way to earn an immediate exit out of Washington.
Griffin III doesn’t have that problem. He’s proving to the Redskins, and their fans, that he’s the undisputed leader of the team. The franchise sacrificed a lot to draft RG3, and he definitely wants to reaffirm the Redskins’ faith in him. Being the competitor he is, RG3 doesn’t want the last impression he leaves to be of the Seattle game. RG3 is working feverishly to get back under center and play in 2013. And when you consider the assessment of Dr. Andrews, the most prominent physician in team sports today, it appears RG3 will be healthy enough to tend to unfinished business in 2013.
