This region’s expectations for a charismatic rookie quarterback with braids, “Seize the moment” scribbled on his cleats and the burden of an NFL franchise on his back can be summed up by 12-year-old James Ricks, a Washington Redskins fan from Riverdale, Md.

Robert Griffin III — the reigning Heisman Trophy winner for whom the Redskins mortgaged a good portion of their future drafts to select at No. 2 overall in April’s NFL Draft — has certainly swelled what’s anticipated for a team that missed the playoffs each of the past five seasons and was 5-11 in 2011.
