Case in point: The Washington Redskins rookie closed his interview session Monday by saying "Great job," to reporters. He congratulated the media for their questions.
"Why give him a free touchdown?" Griffin said. "So I ran him down -- because I could -- and pushed him out of bounds."
Griffin drew laughter from the assembled media for that one. He did it again in explaining a bit of rookie initiation at the hands of cornerback Deangelo Hall, who -- you might remember -- calls Griffin the NFC East's worst quarterback.
"Today, D-Hall made me carry his pads because I said, 'I break arms tackles.' So he said, 'Here's these pads, this will help you work on breaking those arm tackles.' "
Speaking of rookie initiations, Griffin will step on stage Monday night to deliver, and possibly face, some music.
"I plan on singing, hopefully I don't get booed off the stage, but we'll see what happens," he said. "â¦ I think I'm going to go with some Temptations, some "My Girl." Hopefully get the whole room singing, and move on from there."
