Robert Griffin III compares Patriots to a high school football team

by Jeff Fisher

NFL New England PatriotsAre the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots like a high school football team? Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin the III thinks so…and in the best way.

According to multiple media outlets, Griffin has done an interview with NFL.com with him being quoted as saying — “What you do learn from watching Tom Brady — and then watching the Patriots organization — you get a big-picture look at it,” Griffin said on NFL.com. “Man, honestly, they operate like a high school football team. You remember in high school, how the coach calls everybody up, everybody runs up, gets on a knee and looks at the coach like what he is saying is the most important thing in the world? That’s how the Patriots are.”

Last year…Griffin and the Redskins spent three days last year practicing with the Patriots.
