New York Giants sack machine Osi Umenyiora may have given us the best quote of the year, and training camps haven't even started yet. The New York post reports that the defensive end was doing some media stuff in New York, and Osi was asked about Redskins rookie QB/savior Robert Griffin III, often referred to as RG3, during a radio interview. Take it away, Osi.
Who is this RG3 guy you guys keep talking about? You talking about Bob Griffin? You guys are giving him a cool nickname already and everything. When he does anything in the NFL we’re gonna call him RG3. Right now he’s Bob Griffin.
That's some solid pre-camp trash talk right there, that's a ten-year vet bringing some serious trash talk heat.
On one hand, Umenyiora is completely right. Dudes should earn cool nicknames. On the other hand, those are Griffin's initials. It's not like everyone's calling Griffin something crazy like 'Touchdown Train' or something ridiculous. All this does though is make me want football to start already.
Umenyiora gets his first crack at Bob Griffin on October 21st in New York.
