Griffin III On NFL Physicality: ‘Bring It On’

Posted Sep 17, 2012

Despite the contentious nature of the game, Griffin III made no excuses after the game, saying he and his teammates should have won anyway.

On Sunday afternoon, Robert Griffin III faced his toughest test as an NFL quarterback, standing tall against an overzealous Rams defense.

Despite the contentious nature of the game, Griffin III made no excuses after the game, saying he and his teammates should have won anyway.

“I didn’t make enough plays to help the team, and that’s the bottom line,” he said.  “You’re judged on wins and losses and we lost the game, so I didn’t play well enough.”

Griffin III finished the day 20-for-29 for 206 yards, a touchdown and an interception through the air.  He also rushed 11 times for 82 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

The Rams brought far more pressure than the Saints did in Week 1, but Griffin III said the offense game-planned with that in mind.

“Teams are going to give us different looks because we’re doing different things,” he said.  “We moved the ball and we scored points. We just didn’t score enough points.

“It’s just a matter of us going out and executing.”

Despite weathering only one sack, Griffin III was a target of late, high hits throughout the game.  When given the opportunity to plead his case, Griffin III instead welcomed the contact.

“We’re men, we play this game. There are no boys on that field, and I don’t think anybody can say it’s too physical,” he said.  “As far as the out-of-handedness of the game, I do think it did get out of hand, but it’s not my job to enforce that.  When it got out of hand, we fought and clawed with them.

“You’ve just got to be prepared for it. If teams want to get physical with us—or, per se, me—then bring it on.”

After a clean week of turnovers in his debut, Griffin III threw his first NFL interception this week to Rams cornerback Cortland Finnegan.

Griffin III did not need to see game tape to know what went wrong, and vowed to learn from his mistake.

“I was going to get sacked so I tried to throw the ball,” he explained.  “It was off of my back foot so I didn’t get enough on it.

“It was just a mistake that I can’t make. I can’t do that, and I’ll learn from it.”

 Griffin III was adamant about not dwelling on the game, but instead trying to learn from the loss and move forward.

“Don’t act like it didn’t happen, but don’t let it hold you down for the next week,” he said.   “You’ve just got to continue to stay on the grind, stay positive.

Just don’t mistake his positive demeanor for complacency: “I don’t take losing very well—no one should,” Griffin III said.

“The day you start taking losses well is the day you should stop playing.”
