RG3 offers words of comfort for Tony Romo

Shutdown Corner

As if we needed any more reason to sanctify Robert Griffin III: turns out that he's a classy guy in victory, too.

In the immediate aftermath of Sunday night's win-or-go-home season finale between the Redskins and the Cowboys, the victorious Griffin sought out vanquished Cowboys QB Tony Romo and offered up advice worthy of a veteran. Here, per our new pals at Pro Football Talk, is a transcript:

“Hey Tony. I just wanted to say to you, don’t listen to what anybody else is saying about you. You’re a great quarterback, man. And this game doesn’t mean anything.”

The comments will be part of Wednesday night's "Inside the NFL" on Showtime.

[Also: QB Andrew Luck overshadowed by others but ready to steal spotlight]

Look, in and of themselves, RG3's words aren't that big a deal; it's the kind of stuff that players say to one another all the time. Easy to be gracious in victory, and all that. But Griffin has already proven that he's a cut above the usual callow rookie stock, and stories like this, coming as they do on the heels of a playoff berth, only add to his legend. The kid knows what he's doing.

You can see RG3 this weekend in action against the Seahawks in Sunday's late game. You can see Tony Romo in action at a Texas golf course.
