New role for 'even hungrier' RG3: Redskins captain
| Published: November 15, 2012 | Modified: November 15, 2012 at 3:03 am
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Robert Griffin III made his debut as an NFL captain with typical RG3 flair, wearing mismatched shoes, saying he's "even hungrier" following a few days off and lamenting that he likely won't get to play against Michael Vick on Sunday.
The Redskins' offensive players voted Wednesday to make their quarterback a team captain for the rest of the season. Coach Mike Shanahan said he believes it's the first time he's had a rookie in such a leadership position.
The title merely confirms reality. From the day he arrived, Griffin has eagerly seized the leadership role that comes with being an NFL starting quarterback and is the primary reason the Redskins (3-6) have a modicum of hope that they can turn their season around.
