Redskins' Robert Griffin III says he feels he's 'best quarterback' in NFL

With Washington Redskins training camp coming to a close, quarterback Robert Griffin III said in an interview with WJLA-TV that he's as confident in his abilities as ever. "I don't feel like I have to come out here and show anybody anything or why I'm better than this guy or better than that guy," he said. "It's more about going out and affirming that for me, I go out and I play, I know I'm the best quarterback on this team. I feel like I'm the best quarterback in the league and I have to go out and show that. Any athlete at any level, if they concede to someone else, they're not a top competitor, they're not trying to be the best that they can be. There's guys in this league that have done way more than me. But I still view myself as the best because that's what I work toward every single day."
