Let Griffin be Griffin. We’ve heard it before and we get it. RG3 is reckless. He plays with wild abandon. He can’t slide. He won’t slide. RG-Knee. The ‘Pistol’, ‘Read Option’, running threat QB offense is dead. Griffin can only survive
Any child of the 60’s or 70’s knows what I’m talking about. God help you if you skinned your knee, cut your finger, or suffered some other childhood trauma resulting in an open wound.

With apologies in advance to the great Johnny Cash
Signed a receiver in a fever, hotter than a pepper sprout,
BGO’s been talkin' 'bout Jackson, ever since Chip Kelly kicked him out.

The mans bad news, cause the signs he use, NFC gonna need some help
