Browns Beat: RGIII has excelled at camp
Robert Griffin III lit it up in the Browns intrasquad scrimmage Friday night, but defenders can't touch the quarterbacks in these practices, and the true test of his improvement won't come until the first preseason Aug. 12 in Green Bay.
Even then, Griffin will probably only play a series or two, so it will be hard to tell how far he's come. The Browns won't really know how well he's reading defenses until a team gameplans for him in the regular season and tries to rattle him.
"He's been good,'' said Pep Hamilton,, associate head coach/offense). "We'll find out about his ability to recognize looks from a defense that he's not so familiar with once we play a game next week."
There's no question that Griffin has been impressive in the first week of camp. He's connecting especially well with top pick Corey Coleman — who caught three big passes from him Friday night including a 41-yard touchdown pass over Justin Gilbert — and his accuracy has improved tremendously since spring practices, the story all said.
