After some film study and three days on the field, Robert Griffin III is in he process of learning the playbook. At this point, he knows how to call the plays better than he knows how to run them.The verbiage is a lot easier than you think, said the rookie quarterback. Im not saying anybody can go out and do it but its different when you look at 14 words on a piece of paper and you have no idea what those 14 words mean.Griffin said that after the coaches explain it it becomes a lot easier. If you forget the back half of the play you know it in your head just because youve gone over it so many times in the film room, he said. We didnt struggle much with the verbiage.Running the plays was another matter. Its different when you know what routes you have on a certain play but youve got to know where to go with the ball during certain coverage. Thats the biggest thing when it comes to playing quarterback in the NFL.In order to learn the offense, Griffin has been watching a lot of film featuring quarterbacks from the Redskins, Matt Schaub of the Texans (Kyle Shanahans old team), and the Saints' Drew Brees. Everybody that runs the same kind of concepts, he said. Its good to see those guys the way they break it down, the way they read it, the way they progress through their progressions. Theres no better way to learn than from guys who already are doing it.One person who believes that Griffin is doing just fine in learning the offense is a fellow rookie, guard Josh LeRibeus. Feels like when he came in he knew the damn playbook, he said.
Back in February, fans named the Redskins the third-most attractive team in the NFL. On top of that, Will Compton was tabbed the league's fifth-best looking player overall (in fact, he beat out Tom Brady, and everyone knows beating out Tom Brady in anything is always notable).
A side effect of being revered for your good looks, though, is that other people will sometimes get jealous of them. Take Compton's teammate, Su'a Cravens, for example.
According to some tweets from Cravens, the two Washington defenders were casually eating dinner on Wednesday night, but kept getting interrupted. The reason for the interruptions?
Apparently, they were happening because Compton is just really, really, really, ridiculously good looking.
Everyone who voted for that ballot was DRUNK! 😂😂😂😂 #AHHHHHHHELLNaaahhhhh— Suzy (@Sua_Cravens) March 30, 2017
Hopefully Compton picked up the tab, at least.
When most 30-year-olds earn a promotion, they'll receive a decent bump in compensation. Then, they'll use some of that bonus on that new set of golf clubs they've been eyeing, or perhaps on a fresh couch for the living room.
Sean McVay isn't one of those 30-year-olds.
The Rams head coach and former Redskins offensive coordinator bypassed those smaller purchases and has instead opted to recently buy a giant house in California. How much did McVay drop on the property? Oh, just $2.71 million. That's all.
The home, located in Encino, has six bedrooms, six bathrooms and checks in at more than 4,600 square feet. And yes, of course, it has a pool.
Here are some photos of McVay's new digs:
The Internet these days is full of hot takes. Here's a cooler, more reasonable one: McVay's house is pretty nice.
