RICHMOND, Va. (WUSA) -- On Monday Robert Griffin III gave the media some insight into his pregame routine.
"I am not very superstitious but I do walk around the field one time
before every game to kind of mark my territory, saying, 'Within these
lines, you control what happens.' I do that before every game. Other
than that, I listen to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" before every game
and that is about it," spoke Griffin.
That last part peaked my interest. Michael Jackson's Thriller doesn't exactly seem like a pump up song to me. But maybe players don't need pump up songs?
So it got me thinking: what one song do Redskins players listen to before each game? I'm always looking for information to reveal some of the unique personalities on the Redskins roster. This list may top the cake.
Ryan Kerrigan: "Ice Cube - It was a good day." YouTube Link
London Fletcher: "Phil Collins - In the air tonight." YouTube Link
Santana Moss: "Oh easy, Outkast. ATL-iens. That's my CD. I listen to it before every single game." YouTube Link
Kirk Cousins: "Matt Redman - 10,000 reasons." YouTube Link
Trent Williams: "I don't know if I have a song. But my artists are Lil Wayne, Kevin Gates, Short Dogg." I chose my favorite Lil Wayne song for Trent Williams. Lil Wayne - Tha Mobb. YouTube Link
Fred Davis: "It always changes for me. I pick random songs for how I'm feeling that day. Against the Titans it was some old Rick Ross mixtapes." I chose my favorite Rick Ross mixtape song for Fred. Rick Ross - Shot To The Heart. YouTube Link.
Barry Cofield: "One song? This is tough...50 Cent - Patiently Waiting." YouTube Link
Josh Wilson: "I'm a Tribe Called Quest guy. That or a little bit of Kirk Franklin."
Josh Morgan: "There's been a lot of good music out this summer. I'll have to go with Wale - 88. Off the new album." YouTube Link
Bacarri Rambo: "I like the new Jay-Z album. Holy Grail." YouTube Link
Rob Jackson: "Frank Ocean's Swim Good. I like the lyrics. It mellows me out and gets me focused." YouTube Link
Kai Forbath: "You are good at putting people on the spot ... I will go with a dubstep song, it's called Cinema. I think it's originally by Benny Benassi." YouTube Link
Jordan Reed: "Jadakiss and Styles P - We going to make it." YouTube Link
Perry Riley: "Young Jeezy. All of them."
Tom Compton: "Taylor Swift - Teardrops on my guitar." I know it seems like he was kidding, but I'm not exactly sure if Compton was. YouTube Link.

Chris Thompson: "Meek Mill gets me pumped up."
Lance Lewis: "Wakka Flakka. It gets my mind right."
Brian Orakpo: "Whatever is playing in the locker room, honestly. Stephen Bowen is the DJ. He always has the latest music going."
Stephen Bowen: "Anything Jay-Z."
Alfred Morris: "I don't have a certain song I listen to. I have mostly Christian music on my iPod. Once I get to the stadium, there is no music. I am running through plays in my head. I'm getting game ready."
Out of the 26 players surveyed, 19 chose rap/hip-hop. There was two heavy metal, two christian rock, one classic rock, one country, one dubstep.
If your a true Redskins fan, you are putting all these songs on a playlist and listening to them on your way to Fed Ex Field this season. You're welcome.
