Robert Griffin III sure looked rusty in the first half of the season opener but that's not what he or his teammates will tell you.
At that point, Griffin had completed 5 of 13 passes for 53 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Many were saying he was rusty, just not in a groove after all of the inactivity. But Griffin, his coach, and his teammates wouldn’t say that.
“I think that's an excuse. I'm responsible for the way I play,” said Griffin when asked if he was rusty.
