Is RG3 coming to the 213? Apparently Bob Griffin wants to spend next fall in the LA Coliseum.
According to the L.A. Daily News, Bobby “very much” wants to play for the Rams next season. Ok. And Jim Rome “very much” wants to own the Rams next season. But unless I fall into 20 bill before kickoff, that’s not happening.
Of course Griff wants to play for the Rams. He just wants to play. He hasn’t played a down in over a year. That dude will play for 32 teams.
The question isn’t whether he wants to play for the Rams, it’s whether or not they want him.
And I can’t lie- I like Griffin coming to town.
Because when I look at the Rams qbs – I like pretty much anybody with a live arm coming to town.
And I’ve said it from the start- an L.A. team needs a big name and a billboard face. I hated Peyton Manning coming as a show pony. But I can get with RG3 coming as a bargain price experiment.
The best football this guy ever played was when he had a bull of a running back with Al Morris in Washington. He’s got a weapon who’s even better in Todd Gurley. And the Rams have got the #15 pick to get another weapon.
I’m not saying he’ll kill it. But I’m saying right now its Bob Griffin or Case Keenum. Which one are you crawling up the 110 to check out? The pack of old-time Ram die hards are going to show up either way. But if they really want to make this thing Hollywood, if they want to pull in the big money Bruckheimer types- they have to have a famous face, and a big name. L.A. is all about what name is at the top of the poster. And that name can’t be Nick Foles.
Bob Griffin has been badly humbled, his price tag has been greatly reduced, but he still has far greater raw talent than anyone the Rams have got… And there’s no town in the world that loves a comeback more than Los Angeles. Neil Patrick Harris – from Doogie Howser to hosting the Oscars.
Robert Downey Jr.. from sitting in prison to playing ironman.
Robert Griffin III – from being on the sideline in the district, to being on billboards on the 405.
And the most hilarious storyline in this movie – would be the Rams raking all those draft picks for trading RG3… And then still landing him anyway. He’ll be hungry, he’ll be under budget, and unlike most Hollywood projects- they can just ditch it if it bombs. To use the industry term – I give RG3 in L.A. a green light.
