Robert Griffin III and his father had lengthy and tense conversation after game


The Washington Redskins lost to the San Francisco 49ers and Robert Griffin III played poorly during the game. 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.

After the game, Griffin’s father came into the locker room to discuss him.

From Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington:

The elder Griffin and his son seemed to have a lengthy and, at times, tense conversation. It’s unclear what the two men were talking about.

The father and son spoke at the son’s locker stall for several minutes as Griffin removed his pads. The elder Griffin also attended his son’s press conference — which is held in a separate room — and then returned to the locker room to continue the conversation.

The visit is notable mostly because it’s very unusual for family members to come into the locker room.

You have to wonder what this was about. Was the elder Griffin consoling and being a sounding board for the younger Griffin? Was he trying to offer pointers? It makes you wonder why it couldn’t wait an hour or so till the game was over.
