The Redskins began organized team activities today, and the wide receivers are loving what they’re seeing from rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“He’s been doing everything that we expect,” Santana Moss said. “He’s looking sharp. He doesn’t look like a rookie right now. I’ve seen him run a lot, but I see him throw the ball and it’s like pinpoint — right there, on the spot. You don’t have to do too much, and he’s giving us a chance to win every time.”
Pierre Garcon, whom the Redskins signed in free agency with the hopes of seeing him become Griffin’s No. 1 receiver for years to come, said he was impressed that Griffin already seems to have a good grasp of the Redskins’ offense.
“He’s doing a lot of great stuff,” Garcon said. “He knows the playbook, he’s calling the right plays, he’s putting guys in position, he’s making the throws on time, and he has a great, strong arm. He’s been like a veteran.”
Griffin said he has worked hard studying the playbook but he has also been reminding himself not to overthink things.
“Sometimes in football, you’ve just got to go out and play,” Griffin said.
So far, his teammates have liked the way he’s going out and playing.
