Santana Moss believes Robert Griffin III can be the quarterback that makes a difference for the Washington Redskins, a club that’s been seeking help at the position for, well, since Mark Rypien led the team to Super Bowl XXVI.
But Moss, in a visit on ESPN 980 in Washington, said there is still plenty for Griffin to learn.
“It’s one of those situations where he is a young guy and at the end of the day regardless how much his skill level is better than other young guys like himself he still has to learn a lot day by day,” Moss said, according to sportsradiointerviews.com. “So, that’s one thing I want everyone to understand that he comes here with the big hope of turning everything around. We are all hoping that. We all want that, but I don’t want that pressure on him as if he has to be the one. Together we have to be a team around him to help him bring us to where we have to be at. I feel like everyday we are out there all we can do is get better together and he can get better as a whole just knowing what this offense is going to bring to him.”
One guy who can help bring Griffin along, in the estimation of Moss, is veteran quarterback Rex Grossman.
“I’m still a big supporter of Rex Grossman,” Moss said. “Rex is a guy you can always count on. I think most definitely he can be a great attribute to RGIII. I feel like both of them are RGIII-I and RGIII-2. I just feel like Rex knows this offense well. Rex is a guy that knows this offense. He can go up there and get guys the ball.
"I’m pretty sure in the film room we are going to be able to show him some things and just be able to help guide him through his rookie season.”
