The Washington Redskins and quarterback Robert Griffin III are struggling this season. There were reports that Griffin had asked Redskins coaches to not show bad plays.
NFL Media columnist 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.”
Head coach Mike Shanahan denied the allegations.
“That’s completely false. Robert wouldn’t do that,” Shanahan told Mike Jones of The Washington Post.
When given the chance, Griffin also denied the reports.
“It’s false,” Griffin said, via The Washington Post. “That’s why I didn’t respond to it, because it’s no need to respond to untrue things. It’s what coach said it was, ‘completely false.’ People trying to character assassinate me, and it’s unfortunate.”
After Monday Night Football and a blow out loss to the San Francisco 49ers there is plenty of bad plays to pick from.
“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.”
