Well, this just got awkward. Amid all of the reports that the Washington Redskins star quarterback Robert Griffin III and head coach Mike Shanahan have a negative relationship, a new report is surfacing that says Griffin is not a fan of his negative plays.

While most players would like to watch what they do wrong on film in an attempt to get better, Griffin reportedly asked the Redskins coaching staff not to show his negative plays in the film room.

Mike Silver said on Sunday that ”at Baylor they didn’t put RG3′s bad plays up on the board in the meeting rooms. Sources familiar with the situation say they’ve asked the Redskins to do the same but they’ve refused to this point.”

Silver added that ”inside the building when you talk to people familiar with this situation they perceive RG3 as kind of insecure especially about Kirk Cousins.”

The good news is that it looks like Shanahan and Griffin are working to settle their differences, but it doesn’t help when your quarterback is trying to keep the team from showing him where he will be able to improve.
