Robert Griffin III came into the league and led the Washington Redskins to the playoff after a remarkable rookie season. His follow-up season didn’t go quite as well as had hoped and he started the season still recovering from an injury suffered in the playoffs before being shut down to preserve his health.
Griffin has spent the offseason trying to regain his confidence. He described his 2013 season as “a whole journey of second-guessing and wondering.”
“As a quarterback, my identity is I am the leader of this team, I am the guy that everybody looks to when things are going bad,” Griffin explained, via the Washington Post. “I am the guy that delivers.
“I am the guy that everyone on the team offense, defense, special teams — when it’s crunch time, they’re not looking at Trent Williams, they’re not looking at Alfred Morris. They’re looking at Robert Griffin III and that is an identity and position I accept.
“You have to believe in yourself. If you don’t believe, nobody else will, and that’s what I do for the guys around me, for my family. I give them that belief that at the end of the day, things are going to work out, and I don’t think their belief is misplaced, even with us being 3-13 last year. We will be a better football team this year. That is my identity.”
