We get it folks.
You are probably going to leave a nasty comment below this article about how Robert Griffin III isn't in Washington, D.C. anymore and how CSN Mid-Atlantic shouldn't cover him.
Here's the issue.
1) The Browns won! Cleveland picked up win No. 1of the season, beating the Chargers 20-17. They play in the AFC North along with the Ravens, which makes this bizarre news somewhat relevant.
2) RGIII remains one of the most polarizing players in NFL, and despite him no longer playing in D.C., his time here was as memorable as it can get. It was the way he played and how it ended that lead us to continue to cover him.
In Week 15, RGIII ran for a nifty touchdown in the Browns' loss to the Bills, but also got destroyed in the open field, just like his time as a member of the Redskins.
And in Week 16, with the Browns clinging to a 20-17 lead over the Chargers with their first win of the season hanging in the balance, RGIII scrambled toward the first down marker and as he attempted to slide, got drilled in the head by Chargers' linbeacker Korey Toomer.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEnAc1L_AZc
Now, this was not the product of RGIII not knowing how to slide, or putting himself in harms way. This was RGIII making the right play and attempting to get down, only to be hit in the head.
Just hit the QB in the head while another player has him wrapped up. It's RG3, people will just blame him for it regardless. pic.twitter.com/nDlAG3AGlb— Awful White QBs (@AwfulWhiteQBs) December 24, 2016
RGIII was taken off the field and evaluated for a concussion with 12 minutes remaining in the game.
He missed all but three games this season following a hit he took in the team's season-opener.
UPDATE: Griffin III seems to be in good spirits following the win.
