Alright, let's start by saying that RG3 and his new collegiate girlfriend are the WORST kind of couple. Not that I had any interest in grabbing a beer with Robert Griffin in the future, but this all but slams the door shut on any prospects of a future friendship between the two of us. I don't even know if he has other people in his life that genuinely enjoy spending time with him, but I can tell you that if he does they have already grown tired of him somehow relating every single piece of subject matter back to how much he loves his new significant other. A visible tattoo of her name on his arm? Public displays of affection at practice? I'd be willing to bet that the over on 50% of his sentences starting with "Grete says..." or "Grete thinks...", and if you're a Browns fans that has to have you a little concerned, right?
Well, as concerned as fans that have been beaten down by decades upon decades presumed failure - especially at the quarterback position - can be anyway. I mean, maybe the fact that RG3 is acting like a lovestruck teenager going though his first honeymoon phase is a sign of good things to come in September. However, I know it's almost assuredly a sign that his play will suffer in a few months when he understands that his 23 year old girlfriend isn't the most perfectest little life partner on the planet. Those two preseason touchdowns passes were exciting as can be, but his reaction to a couple meaningless plays gave a pretty good glimpse into how high he is currently riding. Dude might be on 'Cloud 9' right now, but something tells me by Week 12 it's going to hit him that he's got a scorned ex-wife, a young baby, and a new girlfriend that's too hot not to be high maintenance. If a demotion to backup had him punting and fetching footballs alone then that realization certainly will too.
