Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has faced plenty of criticism throughout the season, but he isn’t listening to what you have to say. With all of the people giving their thoughts on the Redskins situation, Griffin decided to address the issue.

If you are thinking that the Redskins should sit Griffin for the remainder of the season and roll with Kirk Cousins instead, Griffin says that you have no idea what you are talking about and you don’t understand the game of football.

“I don’t take any offense to that. That’s just outsiders looking in that don’t understand the game of football,” Griffin said, via the Washington Post. “When it comes to a time like this, it’s easy for guys to check out. I think it would be real cowardly of me to check out and say, ‘Hey, I don’t want to play these next four games.’ It’s not who I am. It’s not who any competitive football player is. You want to play, so we’re going to finish out the year and you take what’s happened this year, being 3-9, and you face it.”

Griffin has consistently said throughout the year that he isn’t listening to the criticism and he manages to continue coming across poorly by attacking those who are doing what they are supposed to do.

Whether or not Griffin likes it, fans are emotionally invested in teams and they are going to give their thoughts on what they think the team should do, so Griffin better get used to it before he begins falling out of favor with the fans.
