I think if you're a good high school player that you have the ability to be a good college football player. If you're a good college football then you have the ability to be a great NFL player.— Robert Griffin III
The most devotion Robert Griffin III quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
I like to think I'm pretty smart with what I was able to do academically, but whenever I get on the field I turn into the Incredible Hulk and I am unstoppable.
In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness.
You will find that success in life comes far easier when you maintain a cool head and a warm heart, rather than a hot head and cold feet.
There's far more that goes into being a professional athlete than being a college athlete. So many differences that people don't realize. It's not just about playing football and getting paid to do it. There's a lot of things that you have to deal with.
It's always a lot more fun as a quarterback if you can do things you don't normally get to do. So if I can catch a pass and make a play for the team, that's what I'm willing to do.
No one coaches what to do after three seconds, after the quarterback's broken the pocket or he's been in the pocket for five, six seconds.
If you're out there stressing on your pro day, then you're not going to perform well, so I plan on having a little fun. Play a little music while we're out there throwing the football, have everybody tapping their toes and bobbing their head and just go out there and make the most of the experience.
I hope somebody falls in love with me - other than my fiancee.
But that's what you want. As a player you want a team that really wants you; head coach, GM, owner, everybody that really wants you in their place and the players believe in you. I'm looking forward to making somebody fall in love with me.
One thing my dad always told me, was he would make sure I always had what he didn't have. He couldn't play basketball because he didn't have tennis shoes - so I had five pairs of tennis shoes.
Respect talent. Get respect where respect is due, but don't be caught up in yourself where you do things obliviously and not pay attention to what is going on.
I just try to make sure every day that I'm blessed to live on this earth that I seize that day. I'm 25 and, you know, I know with each passing second, I'm getting older. So, I might well seize every single one of those seconds and make sure I'm doing as much as I possibly can in the community to know we worked hard for this and to instill that into everybody around me is truly my goal.
My job is to build that belief in every coach and every owner, that they can put the franchise in my hands and I can take it uphill from there. Obviously, everyone wants to be No. 1, but I'm not going to campaign. I'm just going to go out and show what I've got.
The Redskins haven't won the division since 1999, and we came in and we did it in one year!
You can say whatever you want; it doesn't matter. It doesn't faze me. I'll still go out and do what I have to do, whether that's making A's in the classroom or doing well on the field.
My dad served 21 years and my mom did 13, so through that process, they taught me that I always have to give back.
I'd love to play basketball with the president, or throw the football around or something like that.
I still don't think it's sunk in that I won the Heisman.
I'll be able to reflect back on the season, appreciate those types of things and realize that although I wanted to 'be like Mike' when I was growing up, now I get to go out and be in the NFL.
I try to go through my reads and then, if I have the option to run, I do run.
Every time I step out on that field, I'm 100 percent.
My teammates know that. They know what I'm out there dealing with. I know what I'm out there dealing with. But when it comes to my mindset, I'm 100 percent.
I'm always studying. I probably wrote the most papers of any college quarterback.
I think I'm starting to figure out when I need to get rid of it and when I don't need to.
People would say I'm more polished as a passer than Tebow and Cam, but I'm not as physical a runner. But I am 6'2, 223, and I can throw with the best of them.
Every time you step on the football field in between those lines you're putting your life, your career, every single ligament in your body in jeopardy.
I think I've proven that I'm throw-first, and then run if I need to.
I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I don't have to be defined by thatWe always try to find similarities in life, no matter what it is so they're going to try to put you in a box with other African-American quarterbacks - Vick, Newton, Randall Cunningham, Warren MoonThat's the goal. Just to go out and not try to prove anybody wrong but just let your talents speak for themselves.
You don't have to go out there and fit the mold of what a quarterback is supposed to be. Make your own mold and do the best at each role. If you can run with the best and throw with the best, you can be the best quarterback in your own version of the position.
I know I'm the No. 1 quarterback for the Washington Redskins, and that's all that matters in my heart. That's all I wanted. I wanted a team that wanted me, and I found that.
I hate to talk about myself like that, but if I had to straight up tell a head coach or an owner why they should take me, it's because I'm the best in everything I've done.
Whoever I can go out every week and motivate to do better and to try to go after their dreams, I'm up for that.
There's a fine line between playing with fear and then taking bad plays and playing with no fear.
I want to be one of the guys, but I also want to be 'the' guy, the guy that can go out there and they can rely on in crunch time. I'm going to be the guy that they know will show up every day, every game, every play and show up on a consistently great level.
The mold that everyone is seeing nowadays is kind of the Aaron Rodgers mold - I try to mix and match from the different quarterbacks.
It's not about talent once you get to the NFL because everyone's got it.
It's about being willing to go that extra mile to be the best and that's something that I've always done.
People have said some really good things about my performance, and that's what I'm happy about, what I'm excited about. I was able to go out there, and like I said, I put my best foot forward.
The only reason you get drafted or even looked at by the NFL is because they believe you can play at the next level ... if they believe I can do that, you know I believe I can do it.
To me, it's not necessarily about whom you vote for, it's more about the fact that you go out and exercise that right. There's a lot of people who fight for our right to vote and people in other countries fighting for other peoples' right to vote and I think everyone should exercise that vote.
The speed will increase and the players will be better, but also the players around you will be a lot better. It all cancels itself out.
I try to keep my confidence on the charts, but I'm a confident guy as well.
You've got to be that way. If you don't think that you're the best, then you won't perform that way.
I don't want people to say I'm a solid quarterback.
I want to be the best, and I'll continually work until I get there.
Making it to the NFL is a huge accomplishment.
Making it in the NFL is a huge accomplishment, but I haven't done that yet. No matter how many games we've played, it's still hard to figure out when you've made it in the NFL.
It's believable because great things don't happen without hard work
Last time I checked I was able to throw the ball a little bit.
I have no preferred team, but everyone wants to go No.
1 in the draft. Even the guy who gets picked last in the draft wants to go No. 1. But I just know that whoever picks me, I'm going to be excited to play for that team, and I can't wait to see myself in 'Madden' on that team.
I think there are [gay players] right now, and if they're looking for a window to just come out, I mean, now is the window. My view on it is, yes, I am a Christian, but to each his own. You do what you want to do.
