This RG3 guy. Not only is he a beast on the field, but he’s compassionate towards competing QBs. The picture above says it all to me. Lol. I’m sure Romo needs a lot of consoling, good thing RG3 is there for him (I’m still laughing). Nah, seriously though – this was a classy move on Griffin’s part.
Check out the report after the jump…
According to Michael David Smith at PFT:
After the Redskins beat the Cowboys on Sunday night to win the NFC East and end the Cowboys’ playoff hopes, Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III made a beeline for Dallas quarterback Tony Romo, hugged him and spoke some words of encouragement into his ear.
Thanks to the NFL Films microphones, we now know what Griffin said: Griffin, who surely knew that Romo was about to face a hailstorm of criticism for his three-interception game against the Redskins, was attempting to lift Romo’s spirits.
“Hey Tony. I just wanted to say to you, don’t listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You’re a great quarterback, man. And this game doesn’t mean anything,” Griffin said to Romo, in comments that will air Wednesday night on Showtime’s Inside the NFL.
