Robert Griffin III Rushes Back, Puts Washington Redskins In Tough Spot
It was shaky, uncomfortable to watch and downright awkward. Robert Griffin III‘s long-awaited return to NFL action was hardly worth the wait as the reigning rookie of the year hardly looked like his 2012 self in Monday’s game versus the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Washington Redskins got the doors blown off of them in the first half of this game and the team lacked so much continuity that it was hard to watch at times. For example, a breakdown in communication between second-year running Alfred Morris and Griffin ended with Washington taking a safety in the first quarter. Minor things like a simple handoff were turned into federal affairs by the Redskins because their signal-caller lacked in-game snaps.
I understand that RG3 wanted to be there for his team and compete like he promised he would all offseason long, but he had to know that his torn ACL simply hadn’t healed just yet. Griffin threw awful looking passes all night, yet none of them were more sightly than a first quarter ball that was thrown into triple coverage and intercepted.
Griffin’s footwork was noticeably poor, which is rather surprising considering he was so impressive in 2012 when he used his feet to properly execute the read option. For now, the Redskins sit a 0-1 and are likely to at least consider starting quarterback Kirk Cousins in their next game.
