RGIII: It’s not my job to ‘talk about how bad we are’


Washington Redskins Robert Griffin III struggled again as they fell 27-6 to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football. Griffin completed 17 of 27 passes for 127 yards and throwing one interception. He had a passer rating of 58.7 and a quarterback rating of 4.7. Griffin also ran six times for 22 yards. The Redskins managed only 190 yards of offense in the game.

“Yes, it’s frustrating. We’re frustrated. Everyone’s tired of losing — us, fans, the media, everybody,” RGIII told reporters after the game, via NFL.com. “The one thing to take away — one thing that we’re not is quitters.”

When asked about “making strides” Griffin reportedly was agitated.

“What am I supposed to do? Come up here and talk about how bad we are? I mean, that’s not my job,” Griffin said. “My job is to answer your questions and move on to the next day and get better. It’s not anything personal. You’re the only one asking those questions, but I love my guys. I’ll go to war with them any day.”

Griffin also seemed optimistic about the team’s future at times.

“We’ve got to conquer some of the demons that we have going on as an offense and just as a team in general — and I think we will,” Griffin said, via ESPN. “It takes all of us.”
