Robert Griffin III on Redskins: “They are not asking me to be Superman”

Robert Griffin III is entering a big year for him that could end up being a make or break year. Luckily, unlike best years for Griffin III, the Redskins aren’t asking him to do everything for them. Griffin III spoke to Peter King of Sports Illustrated about the matter.

“They are not asking me to be Superman,” Griffin said after practice on Friday. “They are asking me to be basic and take the plays that are there. If that’s what Jay wants me to do, that’s what I am going to do. It doesn’t mean you take everything out of your game.

“When those opportunities come up to make plays out of the pocket I will do it and not think twice about it. But if they are asking me to do the ordinary, that’s what I am going to have to do.”

Griffin threw for 1,694 yards and 4 touchdowns in 9 games for the Redskins last year while running for 176 yards and one touchdown. If Griffin stays healthy, and is willing to do things Jay Gruden asks of him, he can rekindle the success he had in his rookie season. If he doesn’t, he could very well be someone’s back-up come 2016.
