Robert Griffin III is Washington's young, fast, talented, presumably franchise quarterback. Look at 'im go.

But, as the sorceror who granted him these powers most likely said, this sort of talent comes with a price. And that price is shouldering the blame for your team's losses, as RGIII's teammate Santana Moss explained in a recent interview:

"If we're going to win games, we need to win games with our guy saying, 'At the end of the day, I didn't make a play,' regardless of if it wasn't him."

This came after a Washington loss that ended with an RGIII blind heave and Eagles interception; something you could successfully argue was Griffin's fault, but still. You heard him, RGIII. Get to self-deprecatin'.
