USA Today - [Full Article]

After Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden's public criticism of Robert Griffin III last season, it sure sounds as if there is a concerted effort to say mostly nice things about the quarterback nowadays.

And not just on Gruden's part. General manager Scot McCloughan, too.

In a brief meeting with reporters after a morning walkthrough at training camp Sunday, McCloughan was asked about Griffin's performance against the Cleveland Browns in Washington's first exhibition game.

"Liked it a lot. Liked it a lot. I see improvement. Liked it a lot," McCloughan said. "I see confidence. I see ball out on time. I see a good football player."

Fantasy Impact: 

Griffin played only in the first quarter Thursday night at Cleveland, going 4 for 8 for 36 yards, plus one run for 3 yards. A potential long completion was dropped by receiver Pierre Garcon. Backup Kirk Cousins was 12 for 14 for 154 yards passing, plus a rushing touchdown.
