WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Tonight, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin the third is learning one of the harshest lessons in sports-- Nobody cares that you were rookie of the year in 2012 and played until your knee blew up.
Its all about what have you done for me lately and right now all you've done is lose 3 games.
Now, if you watch Robert griffin the third scramble around yesterday, you might think to yourself, he's moving around pretty well. Yeah you might think that, that is unless you took a minute to hit YouTube and check out the highlights from 2012. Then you'd know, there's no comparison.
Frankly, I had almost forgotten how good he was. Not only was Griffin so much quicker and faster but that RG3 was supremely confident, running with the sort of reckless abandon that said hit me??
You can't even touch me. And for the most part, they couldn't. Not to mention those 20 touchdown passes with only five picks. And you know you're going good when you fumble and your teammates picks it up and scores that happened to RG3 twice last season.
Yesterday, no such luck. Let's Be Real, last year we had big hopes but this year we had big expectations which is whole different thing and makes this 0h-aND-3 debacle that much more depressing.
The good news is RG3 will probably get better and in the meantime, there's always YouTube.
