September 9, 2012             7:06 p.m.

Robert Griffin III directed four touchdown drives, threw for 320 yards and led the visiting Washington Redskins to a stunning upset of the New Orleans Saints.There was only one miserable failure Sunday for the young quarterback.Playing in the city where both of his parents were raised, Griffin had the ease and aplomb of a seasoned pro in a 40-32 victory at the Superdome, where no visiting team had won since the 2010 season.On a pick-fest of a day for the other rookie quarterbacks — Cleveland’s Brandon Weeden had four passes intercepted, Indianapolis’ Andrew Luck and Miami’s Ryan Tannehill had three each, all in losing efforts — Griffin played turnover-free football. In a late game at Arizona, rookie Russell Wilson had the Seahawks on the doorstep of victory, but Seattle lost, 20-16, on three end-zone incompletions from the four-yard line.

Griffin, the Heisman Trophy winner and No. 2 overall draft pick, made good on all of the hype surrounding him, throwing for more yards than any rookie in a season opener except for Cam Newton, who rolled up 422 yards last year in a Week 1 loss at Arizona.

Griffin completed his first eight passes, including one to Pierre Garcon for an 88-yard touchdown, the Redskins’ longest pass play in 35 years. His passer rating was a gaudy 139.9, and he triumphed on a day when the Saints’ Drew Brees threw for 339 yards and three touchdowns.

“I’ve won a high school state championship and a bowl game in college,” said Griffin, who also threw a five-yard scoring pass to Aldrick Robinson in the second quarrter. “But to play in the NFL, the pinnacle of it all, and to win your first game against a Hall of Famer in Drew Brees, it’s at the top.

“After the game, [Brees] told me he was proud of me. That’s big for him to say after he just lost the game.”

It’s official

With the regular game officials still locked out, replacements worked the games with varying levels of effectiveness.

An official threw — then picked up — a flag at Green Bay when Packers returner Randall Cobb ran back a punt 75 yards for a touchdown. The call appeared to be for a block in the back by the Packers and would have nullified the touchdown. When the flag was picked up, San Francisco Coach Jim Harbaugh looked as if his head might pop.

In Tennessee, the Titans weren’t happy about three non-calls on what they thought should have been pass interference. Coach Mike Munchak said there will always be calls that aren’t made by officials, whether the regulars or replacements are on the field.

In Houston, referee Don King drew laughter when he called a penalty on “Texas,” but that could happen to anybody.

Shannon Eastin became the first woman to officiate a regular-season game, working as a line judge in the RamsLions game.

Outer limits

Hello, Canton. Clear a space for David Akers‘ shoe.

The San Francisco kicker booted a 63-yard field goal at Green Bay, the ball doinking the crossbar and just popping over, to tie the league record shared by Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam and Sebastian Janikowski.

The kick was a good omen for the 49ers, who won at Lambeau Field, 30-22, in what could be a preview of the NFC championship game.

January 6, 2013, 6:41 p.m.
Throughout the NFL season,Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III showed he can do just about anything on the football field.

Sunday, he showed what he couldn’t do.

He was incapable of pulling himself from a wild-card playoff game against Seattle — Redskins coaches couldn’t, either — and the results were stomach-turning. Washington lost, 24-14, and Griffin suffered an injury to his already weakened right knee, which with 6 minutes 19 seconds left bent in an unnatural way as he chased a low shotgun snap.

After several minutes on his back, Griffin was able to hobble off the field unassisted. He made a beeline for the locker room, the packed house at FedEx Field somberly chanting his name.

“I think I did put myself at more risk by being out there,” he said. “But every time you step out on the football field, you’re putting your life, your career, every single ligament in your body in jeopardy. So that’s just the approach I take being out there. My teammates needed me out there, so I was out there for them.”

On the play in question, the Seahawks recovered the ball at Washington’s five-yard line. They wound up kicking a 22-yard field goal for their 24th unanswered point after falling behind, 14-0, in the opening quarter.

Knocked back on their heels by consecutive Redskins touchdown drives, the Seahawks responded with a smothering defense and typically impressive play by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson, who burned the Redskins with his feet and his arm.

Wilson completed 15 of 26 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown, and added 67 yards in eight carries.

Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch rushed for a game-high 132 yards in 20 carries, including a 27-yard touchdown run that gave Seattle its first lead, the only one it would require.

“It’s a big comeback,” said Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll, whose team ended Washington’s seven-game winning streak. “The setting of this crowd, and as much momentum as they had, it’s a marvelous statement. It ain’t about how you start, but it’s about how you finish, and we’ve been saying that forever.”

Of the four teams that won games on wild-card weekend, Seattle was the only visiting team to walk away victorious.

Griffin was wearing a brace on the knee because of a ligament sprain he had suffered in December, one that sidelined him for 11/2 games. Further, he had tweaked the knee on a pass in the first quarter, and he wasn’t his typical speedy, graceful self after that.

While the Seahawks are moving on to play at Atlanta in a divisional game, the Redskins are heading into the unknown, with their star player limping and questions about the judgment of their coach — why did Mike Shanahan keep him in the game? — that won’t soon go away.

In a league that preaches that the health and safety of players is paramount, the injury to Griffin was a nationally televised example of how words and deeds are not always in lock step. Shanahan sounded conflicted as he spoke to reporters after the game, not knowing the severity of his quarterback’s injury.

“I talked to Robert throughout the whole game, trying to get a gut [feeling], trying to let him know that it was all right if he was injured, that there was nothing wrong with that,” the coach said. “But you’ve got to do what’s best for the football team. [He was] very strong, very adamant. Doesn’t mean you’re right in not taking him out, I’m just saying that his personality has that type of mind-set. . . . You appreciate that toughness.”

In an eye-opening revelation that surfaced before the game, Dr. James Andrews, a renowned surgeon, told USA Today that he had never cleared Griffin to return to the Dec. 9 game against Baltimore, when the quarterback was first injured. In the immediate aftermath of that injury, Shanahan told reporters that Andrews, who was on the sideline, had given his blessing to Griffin’s reentering.

Griffin limped off the field for one play that day, then returned for four before leaving again when it was clear he couldn’t continue.

After Sunday’s game, Shanahan clarified the situation from the game a month earlier.

“At that time, I looked over at Dr. Andrews and he said, ‘Yeah, he’s OK to go back in,'” Shanahan said. “Of course, I’m sitting there trying to evaluate [backup quarterback] Kirk Cousins and our plays, so if somebody says, ‘He’s OK.’ Well, what Dr. Andrews was talking about, and I talked to him today, he said, ‘Hey, Robert came around, he started showing us that he could run. He was sprinting around, and then he just took off. I figured he was OK. I hadn’t gone through a thorough examination until after the game.'”

To his Redskins teammates, Griffin’s stubborn inability to remove himself from the game until he absolutely couldn’t continue was a testament to his toughness and dedication, and an example of the widespread ethos in a sport in which there’s always someone over your shoulder who’s angling for your job.

Asked if players are willing to mortgage their futures to stay on the field now, Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen said: “It’s hard to keep that perspective, I guess. Because in that moment you’re like, ‘I don’t want to let anybody down. I don’t want to let the team down.’ It’s hard.

“I feel like in some ways coaches need to help a guy like that to say, ‘Hey, let’s live to fight another day.'”

12:55 PM ET, 04/26/2012

Draft day was an amazing experience for me in 2000, so here’s an attempt to explain what Robert Griffin III may be doing and feeling right now.

Let’s start with the night before. My parents, two brothers, both sets of grandparents and many others traveled with me to New York, and they were with me in the hotel.

I can remember being in my room and not being able to sleep. The thoughts that ran through my head were very specific: How would I handle it when my name was called? Would I cry? I certainly thought that seeing my family and knowing that one of us made it would be more than enough to draw a few tears. Would I just be excited and play it cool, acting like I’ve been there before even though I hadn’t?

But before I knew it, the longest night in my life up to that point had finally come to an end.

To start the day, I went to the hotel room of Dave Williams — my trusted barber and friend — to get my hair cut. We reminisced while he was doing his thing on my hair.

Dave was and still is the best barber in Pittsburgh. He’s been cutting hair for the Steelers since I was a child. On draft day, we talked about the first time my dad ever took me to the shop in the fourth grade. It was very difficult to get an appointment with Dave because he was always booked. For some reason, when he saw me he took to me right away and that was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. So we went through grade school, middle school, high school, college and my announcement for the NFL. We must have spent two or three hours talking about all the people we were close with and we loved from around the way. Getting drafted will do that to you.

We talked about Bruce, Dave’s brother, Jacque, Ice, Heav, Big Bruce, Big Darrel, Tone, Chief — the list goes on. Some still are with us, some are gone.

What made the conversation so significant was all of them protected me and always said “you the one that’s gonna make it.” They’d tell me if they ever caught me messing up, I wouldn’t have to worry about the police. They’d get me first.

During the conversation, I went into the bathroom and cried until I had no more tears. It hit me: All of the time, hard work and people who believed in me had brought me to this day, this moment where everything that anyone ever said or did for me, that moment when they called my name — we all did it.

I finished my cut, ate only a light meal because I had a bad case of the nerves and then went and got dressed. Then I met up with my family and we traveled to the green room, laughing and joking on the way.

When we walked into the green room near the stage, I had to sit down because the feeling had started to leave my legs. I knew I would be picked by the Washington Redskins, and I was excited because D.C. was the place and team I wanted to play for. I remember looking at my mom and dad and smiling at them. As they smiled back, the pride I felt at that moment almost made me break down again. Of course, other players were around so I sucked it up and pushed past it.

The phone finally rang. It was the Redskins brass asking me if I was ready to join the team. I think that moment got me so pumped up that my emotions immediately went from holding back tears of joy to “I’m ready to rip some heads off in D.C.,” and seconds later my name was announced. I will never forget that moment when I heard my name called. All I could do was thank God for putting all the people in my life who made it all possible. I can remember saying to myself: “Dude from 133 Shannon Drive to Radio City Music Hall, the number two pick in the draft. Dude, you are the number frickin’ two pick in the draft!” I gave hugs and then grabbed my hat and was greeted by an awesome reception by the crowd. My entire family came on stage and for a few minutes we basked in the moment. For me, it was akin to an out-of-body experience, and at least for a second all was perfect in my world.

Maybe RGIII won’t have an emotional conversation while getting his hair cut, but I’m sure his entire life will pass right in front of his eyes during the course of this entire day.

Congratulations Robert Griffin III; you deserve this. Welcome to Washington. I know I speak for a lot of people when I say we wish you all the luck in the world. Welcome to the family and enjoy every moment of this day.
