Its more Pat Sims Jersey about going out and affirming that for me, I go out and I play, I know Im the best quarterback on this team. I feel like Im the best quarterback in the league and I have to go out and show that, Griffin said Sunday. Any athlete at any level, if they concede to someone else, theyre not a top competitor, theyre not trying to be the best that they can be.”Theres guys in this league that have done way more than me. But, I still view myself as the best because thats what I work toward every single day.After winning the Heisman Trophy at Baylor, Griffin was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and won Offensive Rookie of the Year honors following the 2012 season.Washington coach Jay Gruden has seen progre s in Griffin, who is listed as the starter ahead of Kirk Cousins, a fourth-round pick in 2012. Cousins has thrown for3,030 yards and 18 touchdowns with 19 interceptions in 14 Jeff Driskel Jersey games, with nine starts, while filling in for an injured Griffin.The last two years have been a struggle, and a revelation for Griffin, who said playing in the NFL is not what heexpected.Its not the game you thought it was when you were a kid and you were dreaming of playing and being a profe sional athlete, Griffin said. Brandon LaFell Jersey Theres more busine s that goes into it, theres more ruthle sne s, backstabbing than you would expect. But at the end of the day when you put your helmet on your shoulder pads and your pants, your cleats and you get to go out there and run around on the field, its still that same game that you played as a kid.So when I look at it that way, Im like, man, its an honor, its a ble sing to be at this level, to be able to go out here with 90 guys and truly enjoy, truly enjoy this proce s. So thats where I look at it now. I didnt expect the other stuff, but I think Gods helped me grow through everything that Ive had to go through here in Washington and itll make me better for the future.Griffin said he doesn’t like today’s culture of constant scrutiny, but accepts it as a reality and doesn’t feel outside pre sure. That said, he knows that every time he steps on the field, he “has to prove” he’s the team’s best option.”Every game is a new game. Every play is a new opportunity,” Griffin said. “There is no pre sure when you go Paul Dawson Jersey out there and know what you’re doing.”
