Robert Griffin III: It’s a fresh start, not starting over


The Washington Redskins had a great year in quarterback Robert Griffin III’s rookie season heading to the playoffs as the NFC East Champions. Last year they found themselves near the bottom of the division once again and the front office made a change firing head coach Mike Shanahan.

Still Griffin is remaining optimistic and isn’t calling it a rebuilding phase instead referring to it as a fresh start instead.

“We’re all excited, everybody in the organization,” Griffin said, via Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post. “Talking to my teammates, it’s not that we’re starting over; we’re just getting a fresh start. So we’ve got a new leader at the helm and we’re going to be a united front. And I think all those guys are really excited about what’s coming.”

We’ll see how it works but the fresh start could take a season or two to start gaining some traction.

    Hope that wasn’t a dig at Shanahan! He got his wish, just hope he goes out and plays football, he needs a “fresh start” more than anybody! HTTR
