The Redskins' major challenge may be protecting Griffin from himself. Sunday's game between St. Louis and Washington was exactly what you'd expect from two teams trying to establish their respective identities. The Redskins came in with the NFL's hottest young quarterback, a player capable of redefining the position. The Rams came in with a young squad eager to display the ferocity and attitude that their head coach, Jeff Fisher, always preaches.
Ball moves faster in the air than on the ground; this is why no running QB ever "redefines" the position.
