But the No. 2 overall pick is still just a rookie, as teammate DeAngelo Hall pointed out.
"He's probably right now, the worst quarterback in our division. He hasn't taken a snap,â Hall said, via the Washington Post. "He has that title until he takes a snap and goes out and proves heâs something."
It sounds harsh, but it's obviously true. For just this season, we'd prefer Eli Manning, Tony Romo, and Michael Vick far ahead of Griffin. The NFC East is annually overrated, but it legitimately looks like the most compelling division in football this year. The quarterbacks are a big reason why.
"It starts in our division, man. We ain't looking at nobody else. Our division is so tough," Hall said. "Great quarterbacks. ... We have to prove we can get past our division first. We get past our division and we make the playoffs, and the last couple years, we havenât been able to do that. Thatâs why we havenât been in the playoffs."
