That Looks Like A Pretty Dumb Workout Routine, RGIII

I'm not a personal trainer or anything, but I feel like dragging tires down the road via twine that you have looped around your ankles is not a super good idea, man. » 2/19/15 4:51pm 2/19/15 4:51pm

Mike Shanahan: RGIII Told Me Which Plays Were "Unacceptable"

Robert Griffin III received The Dreaded Vote Of Confidence™ from head coach Jay Gruden today, who declared that the embattled QB will be his No. 1 guy to start the season. Just saying, I don't see the Colts or Dolphins or Seahawks having to make announcements supporting their respective Class of 2012 signal-callers. » 2/18/15 4:26pm 2/18/15 4:26pm

Kirk Cousins: If RGIII's The Starter, I Want Out

With so many crap teams hitting the reset button today, you may have briefly forgotten about Washington, the kings of dysfunction. Well, here's your reminder: they're still a mess, and they're content to come back with the same coach and GM. But it seems they're going to need to clear out at least one quarterback this… » 12/29/14 1:25pm 12/29/14 1:25pm

Robert Griffin III Might Be The Saddest Man

Don't be fooled by his season-high passer rating yesterday (earned with five snaps in garbage time of Washington's 24-0 loss to St. Louis). Robert Griffin III is broken up inside. Via CBS DC, Washington Post Skins writer Mike Jones recounts what Griffin's been up to since losing the starting QB gig: » 12/08/14 9:06am 12/08/14 9:06am

Jay Gruden May Lose His Job Unless He Makes Nice With Robert Griffin

Washington coach Jay Gruden could be out of a job after this season because of his desire to part ways with Robert Griffin III, according to Jason Reid of The Washington Post. » 12/06/14 6:35pm 12/06/14 6:35pm

Say Goodbye To RGIII In Washington

We have, unless and until Colt McCoy gets hurt, almost certainly seen the last of Robert Griffin III in burgundy and gold. Now benched for two different backups to end two consecutive seasons, there is nothing left in D.C. for the former second-overall pick. Not if Jay Gruden remains coach, and given that Griffin's… » 11/26/14 9:03am 11/26/14 9:03am

Report: RGIII Benched, Colt McCoy To Start Against Indianapolis

Earlier today it seemed Jay Gruden really wanted to bench Robert Griffin III, and according to a report from Adam Schefter (and confirmed by Mike Jones), he's finally done it. Schefter, citing a team source, says that Colt McCoy will be Washington's starting quarterback when they take on Indianapolis on Sunday, not… » 11/25/14 11:29pm 11/25/14 11:29pm

Man, Jay Gruden Really Wants To Bench RGIII

Last week, Washington coach Jay Gruden apparently won the power struggle with his quarterback for Dan Snyder's favor. On Sunday, Griffin kept the Skins in the game; he didn't do anything particularly well, but he didn't do anything egregious enough to warrant being benched for Colt McCoy. He'd better keep that up,… » 11/25/14 2:19pm 11/25/14 2:19pm

What Did RG3 Say That Peyton Manning Hasn't?

In terms of RG3 takes, it appears we're not quite out of the woods. The quarterback's comments after Washington's pratfall against Tampa Bay—in which he more or less said football is a team effort—gave everyone the opportunity to take a swing at the already-half-broken piñata. Here's one more bad take, from Brian… » 11/19/14 2:06pm 11/19/14 2:06pm

RG3 Is Making Everyone Insane

Let's begin with the full quote. You already know that RG3 allegedly threw his teammates under the bus after the Skins got their asses handed to them by the Bucs at home on Sunday, but you probably only read this part of the quote… » 11/18/14 3:42pm 11/18/14 3:42pm

Rodney Harrison: "I Think You Have To Get Rid Of" RGIII

Washington's 27-7 loss to Tampa Bay could be described as rock bottom if this franchise hadn't proven so adept at digging even deeper. But the disaster of a game seems like this year's turning point: any lingering hope of a late-season surge is gone, fans are angry and embarrassed, and the pundits can't possibly make… » 11/17/14 11:22am 11/17/14 11:22am

That Whole ESPN Report On RGIII Was Kind Of A Mess

On Sunday, ESPN had a big Trouble-in-Landover report that was actually two stories rolled into one. The juicier one, a claim that a locker-room outburst was proof that Robert Griffin III had "alienated" his teammates, was quickly disputed by a whole bunch of reporters who were in the room. Now the second story is… » 11/05/14 4:43pm 11/05/14 4:43pm

Jay Gruden Blasts "Amateurish" ESPN Report About Robert Griffin III

There is never any shortage of drama in Washington, and yesterday's game in Minnesota had a little bit of everything: a bus crash, a large protest against the team name, and, totally unexpectedly, a little bit of a quarterback controversy between RGIII and Colt McCoy. » 11/03/14 8:59am 11/03/14 8:59am

Just How Good Is Kirk Cousins?

When Robert Griffin III busted his ankle early in Washington's Week 2 game against the Jaguars, the team turned to backup Kirk Cousins to run the offense, again, and damn, he filled in nicely, again. The offense came alive, and Washington came away with a decisive 41-10 victory. RG3's return is still up in the… » 9/18/14 2:51pm 9/18/14 2:51pm

Report: Robert Griffin III Won't Need Surgery

Washington reportedly got some good news this morning on Robert Griffin III, who left yesterday's game on a cart after an ugly looking ankle injury. According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, preliminary MRI results show no further damage beyond a dislocation. » 9/15/14 12:42pm 9/15/14 12:42pm
