Call me a Kool-Aid drinker, but the idea that ALL of sudden many of the problems with the Washington football team fall on the shoulders of Robert Griffin III because he is some sort of villain is crazy to me. There are certainly many things that Robert can improve on to help him evolve into a much better pocket passer and NFL professional, but a power possessed manipulator? Sally Jenkins of The Washington Post says he’s a “23-year-old boy emperor who believes he can dictate everything from the play-calling to what’s served at training table.” Sally wrote her column today “Behind closed doors, Griffin had fierce finger-pointing tensions with his wide receivers, and he bragged to teammates that he could procure favors from the owner and influence the franchise’s direction.” What do you think? Is Robert Griffin III an asset or a liability?
