The Washington Redskins have had their fair share of issues in 2013 and they don’t appear to be getting better, especially when the team appears to be in denial about what they really are. Star quarterback Robert Griffin III was speaking to the media for his latest comments, where he opened up about his team.

Griffin said that he understands the criticism will be coming the team’s way because of the losses piling up, but he actually believes that the Redskins are better than their record suggests.

“Any time you lose in the National Football League, there’s going to be criticism and we understand that,” Griffin said. “The hardest part of all of this is probably the fact that we know that we’re not what our record says we are.

“I mean, this is a team game. I’m not going to sit up here and talk about myself. So like I was going to say, talking to those guys in the locker room, we know we’re not what our record says we are and that’s what makes it tough. It wouldn’t be this hard and no one would be criticizing if we didn’t think we were a good team, if people didn’t think we were a good team.”

Considering the defense is atrocious and Griffin continuously makes terrible decisions which set his team back, it is safe to say the Redskins actually are what their record says.

In fact, they may be worse.

If they want to improve in any form or fashion, they need to keep a close eye on Griffin and be willing to bench him in favor of Kirk Cousins if he does not improve.
