Robert Griffin III cracked a smile and then expressed surprise Wednesday afternoon when asked about Griffining, the latest gesture to sweep the NFL.Who would have thought getting knocked on your butt and throwing a touchdown would start a phenomenon like that? he said during his weekly news conference. Griffining and RGIII and whatever they want to call it, Im not opposed to it. Its pretty funny to me.Since Sunday, fans have been imitating Griffins spontaneous celebration to his first career touchdown. The Redskins rookie quarterback struck the pose seated on the turf, arms raised and fingers pointing toward the Superdome ceiling as Pierre Garon raced into the end zone in the first quarter.Last season, Tim Tebow and Tebowing took the sporting world by storm. It remains to be seen if Griffining will have the same staying power, but a search on Tweetreach.com of the hashtag Griffining at lunchtime said the term reached 137,000 accounts.I havent seen anyone do it, Griffin said. But some of my teammates have made fun of me for it. Like I started it on purpose.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is always open to some coaching no matter who it comes from. On Friday that coaching came from Veronica, an 85-year old woman who works at Congressional Country Club and is a die-hard Redskins fan.
Cousins posted a picture of the pair together on his Instagram account Friday afternoon.
Why I love playing for Washington... Just met Veronica, an 85 year old employee at Congressional Country Club, has worked there for 53 years and is a diehard Redskins fan. She had 3 thoughts to share: 1. She coaches me from her couch 2. Wants to be sure I get the ball out when I drop back 3. Wants the new receivers to get involved in the offense I'll see what I can do!
Veronica made some solid suggestions, especially the one about him getting the ball out of his hands quicker.
Despite the rocky contract situation with the team, there's no question that Cousins loves the passionate Redskins fan base.
