But that didn't stop the Giants from heaping a ton of praise on the rookie quarterback.
"That guy is flat-out unbelievable," Osi Umenyiora said of Griffin after the game. "That's the best quarterback we've played this year, for sure."
Teammate Justin Tuck even seemed a little disappointed with how the 2012 NFL Draft played out. If he had a choice, he'd probably like to see RG3 feasting on defenses in a different division.
"I'm pretty mad at the football gods for putting him in the NFC East," Tuck said after the Giants' win over the Redskins. "A quarterback like that, he's different from the Eli [Manning] and those guys. He presents … it's just hard to game-plan that guy. He takes away from your enthusiasm for the game a little bit when you play a play perfectly and he still has 4.3 speed to outrun guys and make plays. I don't think there's anybody in the league just like him."
Well then. That's some serious praise for a guy with just seven NFL games under his belt, but it goes to show how unique and special a player Griffin is considered to be. As Tuck also pointed out, Griffin could be a "headache" for opposing defenses for years to come.
