Robert Griffin III is the feature story in the latest ESPN The Magazine, and in the piece he talks about the decision back in January to play in the wild card game vs Seattle..
“Your survivor instinct kicks in,” Griffin says. “You’re like, ‘I’m a warrior. I’m a beast. I do all these things, I can push through adversity.’ ”
He acknowledges that he needs to work on moderating that instinct. “If I had another incident like the Ngata hit, I’m out of the game. You pull yourself out at that point. You learn from your mistakes.”
What about the Seahawks game? “I don’t feel like playing against the Seahawks was a mistake. But I see the mistake IN IT.”
“With what happened and how everything was running — you take me out. If that happened again next year, I’d come out of the game and sit until I was 100% healthy.”
