RG III needs to start winning

Robert Griffin III is a standout rookie quarterback for the Washington Redskins.  Last off season the Redskins traded what many would say is too much just to get the Baylor star.  Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy last season and was destined to be a top 5 pick.  The Redskins needing a QB decided to take a chance and go after the very talented QB.  Only time will tell if that was a good move or not.
We are entering week 11 of his rookie year in the NFL and GriffinIII has already accomplished so much. He has thrown for nearly 2,000 yards, rushed for over 500 yards and has thrown 8 touchdowns.  He has only thrown 3 pics.  He is probably on his way to rookie of the year and he is definitely a superstar.
He has commercials with Subway and Gatorade.  All very impressive for any athlete.  The problem is his team only has three wins.  That would be ok if this was week five or six or even week seven.  But its week 11 and with the playoffs around the corner RGIII needs to shift it into high gear and get the Redskins on a winning streak.  The Redskins have two games in five days against division rivals.  If the Redskins can win both of these games they will be 5-6 and will put themselves in position to make a run at the playoffs.  They play the Eagles today and the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.  Both very winnable games especially if RGIII plays the way he has been playing.  If Griffin gets his team to the playoffs he may not only win Rookie of the Year he'd be in talks to win NFL MVP also.
