I’ve said it before that great athletes are supposed to say they’re the best even if they’re not but there’s exceptions to this.  First, you shouldn’t say it if you’re aren’t prompted i.e a leading question from the interviewer, Secondly, you shouldn’t say it if you haven’t been performing well lately.  Apparently Robert Griffin III wasn’t aware of those two exceptions.

At the end of training camp, Griffin sat for an interview with  WJLA’s Alex Parker (h/t Washington Post) for a discussion about where he is as a player and a person.  As for his ability on the field, he’s as confident as ever.

“I don’t feel like I have to come out here and show anybody anything or why I’m better than this guy or better than that guy. It’s more about going out and affirming that for me, I go out and I play, I know I’m the best quarterback on this team. I feel like I’m the best quarterback in the league and I have to go out and show that,” he said. “Any athlete at any level, if they concede to someone else, they’re not a top competitor, they’re not trying to be the best that they can be. There’s guys in this league that have done way more than me. But, I still view myself as the best because that’s what I work toward every single day.”

Well the NFL season is almost upon us.  It’s time for him to prove it; less talking more showing.
