Robert Griffin III attended an after-party for the White House Correspondence Dinner on Saturday, and took time out to remind the fans in attendance that yeah, the Redskins swept the Cowboys last year.
The sweep came in a decidedly devastating fashion for Dallas: The last was a win-or-go home game in week 17 in Washington. The first was a Thanksgiving Day loss at Cowboys Stadium, leading Griffin to comment that the ‘Skins made JerryWorld their “home.”
“We made Cowboys Stadium our home. And that's what we want to continue to do,” Griffin said, via ESPN Dallas. “... Rehab's going great. We're having a great draft right now, and I'm all in for Week 1--just like you guys are.”
Interestingly, Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was actually in town for the correspondence dinner, along with Giants’ receiver Victor Cruz.
Griffin also went to lengths to assure the raucous crowd that his knee was doing just fine.
“I'm good. You guys saw me jumping. I mean, I can run a little bit,” he said. “I'll be good. No worries. I'll take it slow, but at the same time, I'll be ready to go.”
