Donovan McNabb says Robert Griffin III is getting brainwashed by Redskins


Former Philadelphia Eagles and Washingtn Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb criticizes current quarterbacks with relatively frequency. His favorite targets tend to be Tony Romo and current Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. McNabb has put that behind him and reached out to RG3 and offered to counsel him, Griffin declined.

“I don’t think Donovan is an idiot by any means,” Griffin told GQ Magazine, via ProFootballTalk. “But right now, it’s probably best we don’t talk.”

Surprise, surprise, McNabb wasn’t thrilled by those comments and returned to his normal routine of bashing him.

“I’m just trying to help him, but clearly the young generation think they have all the answers,” McNabb said on NBC Sports Radio‘s Under Center with McNabb and Malone. “And he’s going through a little turmoil right now of trying to get out on the field. And it’s unfortunate, but that’s where we’re at right now as far as these young quarterbacks who think they have all the answers.”

“I honestly think that over there in Washington he’s getting brainwashed.”

In case there were ever a face to face interaction, McNabb says a confrontation is the last thing RG3 would want.

“I hope the best for the young man,” McNabb added. “But the direction he’s going in is really a direction he does not want to do. He does not want to go there with me.”

    McNabb is a washed up has been who is jaded because Shanahan and the Redskins noticed early on after acquiring him that he was finished.McNabb was one of my favorite QB’s in his prime but now I think he should just shut up. Griffin and the skins have enough to worry about without his jealous meddling.

    I’m just happy that the rest of the country gets to finally see what a complete idiot this guy is. Philly fans got to see it for 10+ years while the national sports media coddled and protected him. He was a decent (top 10) QB for about 5 years 2000-2005 then he declared himself a “pocket passer” and pretty much went to below average after that. He still had a few good games each season but then again so do most below average QB’s. Like I said, I’m just glad the rest of the country gets to finally see what McNabbs all about. Anyone remember his reported score of 5 on the Wonderlic?
