ROBERT GRIFFIN IMPRESSES THE WASHINGTON REDSKINS
Mon, 18 Jun 2012 10:41 AM EDT

QB Robert Griffin III plans to remain focused on football till he and his fellow rookies are due back at Redskins Park on July 16 to make preparations for training camp. Betting lines

Not that he has to do it.

The Washington Redskins will not practice again for one or two weeks and Griffin will return to his local Texas in the break, but he won’t be lounging around a pool sipping margaritas. The Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor wants to work out with some of his receivers during the break at a place and time to be determined.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Coach Mike Shanahan are similarly pumped about Griffin’s passion for the game. Kyle Shanahan said that he has picked up the offense faster than predicted for a QB who didn’t play much under center in school.

“You get a man this talented. It’s exciting, it pumps all of the players up,” declared offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who feuded with QB Donovan McNabb in 2010 and agonized through Rex Grossman’s 25 turnovers in 2011.

Nevertheless RGIII had an uncommon poor day on last Wednesday, though he took it in stride.

“This is the longest year of your life. For rookies, coming out of the college, going right into mix training, pro days, minicamps, OTAs,” Griffin claimed. “It just keeps going. I’m not going to be sad or mad about it. I’ve got a blessed life and I’m going to go off to ensure I continue to guide that blessed life.”

Griffin, one of the most accomplished dual-threat quarterbacks in NCAA history, has certainly made his percentage of plays this spring. But at 22-year-old, he knows he hasn’t come close to mastering the position in the way of Hall of Fame passers Steve Young and John Elway, who won Super Bowls under Shanahan’s direction.

“I’m just more comfortable with everything,” Griffin said when asked how he has shown improvement since rookie minicamp began on May 4. “I felt like I knew where I was going with all (during Tuesday’s training in which he maneuvered to find new receiver Pierre Garcon for a short touchdown and veteran starter Santana Moss for a long one), saw certain things in the defense and exploited (them).”

Nonetheless Griffin believes that you can never know an offense particularly well. To this end, he plans to call the Shanahans at least 2 times per week during the break to pick their brains.

Griffin also has trusted guidance from vet squad including Chris Cooley, the 2-time Pro Bowl tight end who has played with seven QBs during his 8 seasons in Washington.

“The way he’s come in and worked has been extremely impressive,” Cooley expounded. “His ability to pick up our offense and his capability to come in our huddle and call the plays confidently, make us the line, it’s been pretty exciting.”

The newbie is excited that the veterans have welcomed him as their leader.

“I know they need to trust in me,” Griffin recounted, citing beneficial pointers he’s received from Grossman, whose starting job he has claimed. “You need men that are on your side, that aren’t looking to stab you in the back, but (are) looking to help build the whole franchise up.”
