The Browns experienced the full spectrum of Robert Griffin III, and it only took 1 preseason drive

New, comments

He was good and bad, much like a player who hasn't played in a while and playing in the first preseason game of the year. Let the takes begin!

It's just the preseason, so there's no point in getting too emotionally invested in anything you see. So, there's no need for Cleveland Browns fans to worry about the pick Robert Griffin III threw to end Cleveland's first drive and there's no reason to get overly excited about that 49-yard bomb to Terrelle Pryor to open that same drive.

But this is RG3, so every play is subject to the hottest of takes. There can be no middle.

RG3 IS BACK! ROOKIE OF THE YEAR FORM!

That is a pretty nice pass, preseason or not. Also, how great is it to see Pryor doing good things?

Here's the interception.

Tight end Gary Barnidge deserves some blame there. He never turned his head. You could probably chalk that up to communication, but ...

HE'S STILL TERRIBLE!

Griffin also got hit a couple times on that drive, against the Green Bay Packers' second-team defense, which will also make for some takes. The Browns offensive line was struggling too.

All in all, Griffin's night was fine. He finished 4-for-8 with 67 yards and an INT. It's the preseason, I'm required to remind you, but don't let that stop you from seeing whatever you want to see in RG3.
