Robert Griffin III has come up with another slogan for the upcoming NFL season.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has yet another slogan for the upcoming 2015-16 NFL season. Since joining the Redskins four seasons ago, Griffin III has tried to capture what he wished to accomplish in the upcoming season in a single statement. It seems like a pretty difficult thing to do, but he has done so each season he has been in the NFL.
In his rookie season it was “know your why.” Confusing? Yes. But RGIII came out firing his rookie season and threw for 3200 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. The Redskins even made it to the playoffs only to lose to the Seattle Seahawks in the Wildcard game.
So the next year, after suffering a bad knee injury in the wildcard playoff game, RGIII thought it would be best to encapsulate the 2013 season with the catch phrase “All in for Week 1.” Definitely not as good as “know your why” but still a solid slogan. As we saw the quality of slogan decrease in season two so did RGIII’s production on the field. That and clashed with the coaching staff as the Redskins’ disappointed fans with a 3-13 record. It seemed that the Redskins were simply just in for Week 1, and not the rest of the season.
The following year, RGIII decided to change up the slogan once more. After all, third time’s the charm. Unfortunately, the slogans continued to get cornier and cornier. “This is for us” described his third season in the NFL. The Redskins obviously didn’t have much respect for themselves as they missed the playoffs yet again and RGIII only played in 9 games.
As he attempts to resurrect what was a once promising career in his fourth year as an NFL quarterback, RGIII decided to give the whole slogan thing one more go before the season starts. “Talk small, play big” is what he decided on.
Now that RGIII has firmly established himself as someone who thinks each season is going to be chronicled in a corny sports movie that needs a slogan to describe itself, maybe he can start focusing on his football game. After all, this year is going to make or break the remainder of his career. No slogan will save him from the constant realization that early retirement may be in his near future if he doesn’t perform.
For now, he isn’t going to say much and attempt to play big. Good luck RGIII, we will see if this slogan works out for you.
