None of us will be surprised to hear national media pundits questioning Robert's ability to play in the snow, cold,
wind and noise as the season progresses. Today they can scratch rain off the list too.
Beyond RG3 taking advantage of those slip sliding D Backs and pass rushers, there's a young man with one of the lowest centers of gravity in the league, who just so happens to have grown up in South Florida and then played at Florida Atlantic. Why do I get a feeling Alf is wearing a smirk right now anticipating his offense's intentional misdirection, the opposing defense's unintentional misdirection and what we used to know as "Redskins Weather?!"
Here's Rich Tandler talking about RG3's last regular season game at Baylor. That rain-soaked day Robert threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more. Those two TD passes were 59 and 39 yards, respectively -- and that was against a team that hadn't given up a TD pass longer than 20 yards all season. Robert dominated.
Rich Tandler: "Robert Griffin III is likely to face some adverse weather conditions today for the first time in his career as a steady rain is forecast throughout today’s 1:00 game against the Falcons.
However, RG3 likes that kind of party. At least he did the last time he was involved in a wet-weather game. That was last December in Waco, Texas in the final regular-season game of his Baylor career.
Robert Griffin III lifted Baylor to its best football in a generation.
On Saturday, in what may be the last home game of his college career, the Bears quarterback put on the kind of performance that could convince Heisman Trophy voters he's best player in the country.
Griffin ran for two touchdowns, passed for two more and led the Bears (No. 17 BCS, No. 19 AP) to a 48-24 win over Texas in a statement game on national television. He passed for 320 yards with touchdown strikes of 59 and 39 yards.
It would appear that rain is no problem for Griffin."
