    Default RG3 Closes in on Tebow's Jersey Sales

    Peyton Manning surpassed Tebow, but Griff is closing in on Tebow along with Luck. In the month of May, Griff was the #1 seller.

    OK, is this really big news? No! But what are we gonna do? It's off-season! Training Camp is only a little more than 60 days away!

    Not to be a wet blanket, but...

    "It's not the first time Redskins fans have gotten this excited about a new recruit. Donovan McNabb's jersey was the second-best seller in the league after he joined Washington from the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010."

    Actually I was sort of stunned by that fact. I don't seem to remember that much fan excitement or anticipation surrounding McNabb's arrival. I knew we'd been quality quarterback starved for a very long time, I didn't think it had advanced to a level where Donovan F. McNabb would become the answer to our prayers.

    It's the normal reaction of an NFL fanbase desperate for a straw of hope to grab onto, Chris. In this case, with RG3, I think-with what we've seen so far as indicators-there is much more legitimacy to the hopes.

    I'm giving it a 2-4 year window. Looking for improvement in all areas. Redskins, you're on the clock.

    Oh, without any question, Serv. We should be in for a hell-of-a-ride.

    I think the point is there is a NATIONAL audience for Griffin to tap into and his support isn't only coming from diehard fans in the DC area.

    There is strong evidence of this right here on this site. While many of the sign-ups from Baylor don't post, we have a couple who are making themselves at home here because Griff is now the QB of the Redskins.

    Not to mention the appeal this kid is going to have now that he is getting the exposure he gets. He is a bonafide super star, and all he has to do on the field is live up to 50% of the hype for him to really become one of the faces of the NFL.
