RG3 Proved That He Belongs In The NFL
by Cheval John
This year was supposed to have been a rebuilding year for the Washington Redskins.
But somebody forgot to tell Robert Griffith III, a.k.a. RG3 and the rest of the team that statement.
Behind the heroic play of RG3, the Redskins defeated the Dallas Cowboys 28-18 to claim the NFC East title and earn a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
Though RG3 didn’t have his best game today, he came through when it was needed.
Griffith III went 9 of 18 for 100 yards and rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown on six carries.
Many thought that RG3 was not going to do well at Washington because of their failures over the past decade and the fact the Mike Shanahan was the coach.
But RG3 thrived under Shanahan’s offense and made plays that made the casual fan tune in everytime he steps onto the field.
In hindsight, RG3’s decision to go the NFL was a risky proposition, but it turned out to be the right call and the Redskins are now going to the playoffs.
On the other hand, the Cowboys ended their season with another devasting lost and are wishing that RG3 would have stayed at Baylor instead of going to the NFL.
