This whole deal is kinda crazy. The Skins are making one good move after another ...
I liked Griffin (or as Shannon Sharpe calls him ... Q-Tip) in the games he played. Reminds you of Barry YouKnowWho in a way.
Here is some stuff from Sportsline that kind of sums him up at this point:
Positives: Powerfully built, compact runner with good hands and pass-catching ability... Very effective between-the-tackles back who has that suddenness to plant and drive...Has good instincts in the open and will lower his pads downfield to get that extra yardage... Quick turning the corner, taking proper angles down the sidelines...His ability to change gears in an instant leaves the unsuspecting defenders grabbing at air...Gets into his routes quickly, showing fine turn-&-run action after the catch...Aggressive blocker, despite his size.
Negatives: While he has great open field acceleration, he tends to take his time getting in gear...Has good linear quickness, but does not show that lateral agility to redirect when the rush lanes are clogged...Needs to secure the ball better, as he tends to get a little careless upfield, swinging his arms to gain acceleration, but the result is that he leaves the ball exposed and a high amount of fumbles...Has problems spotting the running lanes at times, resulting in his inability to consistently break it loose...Has smaller than ideal hands...Needs to improve his concentration as a receiver, as he will drop a few easily catchable balls.
I could easily be a Q-Tip fan with what I've seen of him.
I'm just a little Hawaiian and a homesick Island boy,
I want to go back to my fish and poi ...
