ESPN had camera dedicated to only Robert Griffin

Some camera man had it pretty easy last night during the Monday Night Football game which pitted the Philadelphia Eagles against the Washington Redskins.

The game was also the return of Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who ESPN apparently dedicated an entire camera to.

This isn’t exactly shocking news as it’s something that the network will do in milestone situations (say like a home run chase, etc) but for nothing more than a return from injury?

A fan who happened to be walking by the camera (which had apparently been vacated – bathroom break?) snapped a quick picture which included the notes from production to NEVER take the camera off Griffin.

The notes also suggested that anytime Griffin did anything positive, like throw a touchdown, that the camera was to pan to either his parents or to Dr. James Andrews.

Because hey – I’m sure you were probably just sitting at home last night going ‘man, I sure hope ESPN talks about RGIII‘s knee injury and focuses their camera on him for 85% of the game, right?
