Washington Redskins: Mike Shanahan confirms Robert Griffin III will start Week 1

The Washington Redskins and their fans have been on edge for months wondering if their franchise quarterback would be ready to start the 2013 NFL season. On Monday they got their answer.

Robert Griffin IIIRedskins head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Robert Griffin III would indeed start the team’s Week 1 matchup on Monday night against the Philadelphia Eagles. Griffin is almost nine months removed from having the ACL of his right knee reconstructed for the second time. The LCL of the same knee also needed some repair done to it after suffering two separate injuries to the same knee late in the 2012 season.

Shanahan said Griffin was “full speed ahead” and “ready to go.” He then continued by saying, “I feel very good where Robert’s at. And he’ll be our starter on Monday night unless there’s some crazy setback that we don’t anticipate.”

Griffin has seen Dr. James Andrews several times to get check-ups on his surgically repaired knee and the world-renown surgeon apparently has no concerns about the quarterback’s current health.

The Redskins selected Griffin with the second overall choice of the 2012 NFL Draft and immediately made him the face of their franchise by entrusting him with the starting quarterback job as a rookie. The Baylor product responded with a remarkable season.

In 2012, Griffin completed 65.6 percent of his passes (258 of 393) for 3,200 yards, with 20 touchdowns and just five interceptions. That gave him a quarterback rating of 102.4. He also rushed for 815 yards and seven more touchdowns on 120 carries.

The 23-year-old led the Redskins to a 10-6 record and an NFC East division crown. Griffin was also named the 2012 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and the 2012 Sporting News Rookie of the Year, while being selected to the Pro Bowl. So yeah, I guess you could say he had a pretty decent first year in the league.

Griffin has not played at all during the preseason, so when he steps on the field against the Eagles on Monday night he may look a bit rusty. But the Redskins should just be happy he’s back at all, considering how brutal his injury was.

It may take the young signal-caller a few weeks to get used to playing in game action again, but there’s no reason to believe he’ll be hindered in any way moving forward.

  36. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  37. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  38. I really like your writing style, fantastic info , regards for putting up : D.

It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  40. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  41. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  42. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  43. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  45. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  46. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  48. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
