Monday Morning Quarterback: Redskins vs. Bengals

Skins fans tweet about their concern for the safety of quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Sunday’s home game between the Washington Redskins and the Cincinnati Bengals is almost too painful to recall—literally. In the rough-and-tumble 38-31 defeat, quarterback Robert Griffin III would disappear under a pile of Bengals and then, amazingly, jump out and still able to walk. There seems to be a general opinion this Monday morning that while the Redskins did not do well, Griffin continued to prove he’s exciting and tough. That was the prevailing opinion on Twitter, too, though some fans are genuinely worried for his safety.

RG3 weighed in on the matter with his own tweet: “It’s not about getting knocked down or getting up. It’s about getting up and not being discouraged from your plan to succeed.”

Here’s a random selection of tweets about the game.
