Just want y’all to know I will keep working on getting down and not take those bigs hits. Got it right the third time
— Robert Griffin III (@RGIII) August 19, 2014
If you watched any of the Redskins game last night, there’s a very high likelihood you saw RGIII try to slide, crumple awkwardly and get hit by a Browns defender. It was bad. He looked like a kindergarten T-ball player learning to slide into home for the first time.
He says he got it right the third time, but even though it looked competent, he still came up limping with a bruised thigh. Don’t ask me how, but he did.
Nonetheless, at least RGIII knows it’s a problem. This season rests on his shoulders, but if he keeps going the way he’s going, he’ll be lucky to make it through Week 1.
