In the contemporary, "nothing matters but this game" NFL, spurred on by constant criticism in talk radio and social media, the slow development of a quarterback is not allowed. Win or be benched is the new mantra.
Seattle was the lone road team to win this weekend in the NFL Playoffs winning in Washington as Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was playing on a bad knee. Houston, Green Bay and Baltimore were the other winners this weekend.
His charisma, charm, intelligence, work ethic -- which teammates rave about -- and sensational play have the team at 7-6 and in position to make its first postseason since 2006. Yet the question around Griffin remains the same: Will he last?
