Nobody Likes RGIII And I Kind Of Feel Bad For Him At This Point

Today, Robert Griffin III spoke to the media for the first time since being sacrificed to the Lions behind Washington’s Maginot offensive line. Everyone wanted to know: Was he concussed? Why have the Skins waffled on the status of his brain? Griffin gave the answers of a man who is supremely sick of this shit.… » 8/27/15 4:01pm Thursday 4:01pm

RGIII Was Thrown To The Wolves

It’s a scene we’ve seen before: Robert Griffin III, lying motionless on the turf as he’s attended to by Washington’s medical staff. Last night’s preseason concussion, for which coach Jay Gruden is being blasted for leaving Griffin in behind a painfully overmatched offensive line, is all too familiar for everyone… » 8/21/15 10:33am 8/21/15 10:33am

RGIII Has A Concussion, But You Wouldn't Know It From Official 'Skins TV

Tonight’s official presentation of the Detroit-Washington game on the Redskins Broadcast Network left viewers understandably confused about Robert Griffin III’s condition after leaving the game tonight in the second quarter due to injury. That’s mostly because the network repeatedly asserted the team’s quarterback… » 8/20/15 11:31pm 8/20/15 11:31pm

Robert Griffin III Leaves Preseason Game With Shoulder Injury (UPDATE)

For some reason, Robert Griffin III stayed in Washington’s meaningless preseason game against the Detroit Lions for four series. Because Washington was missing Trent Williams and the rest of their offensive line is made of paper, Griffin got walloped half a dozen times before hurting his shoulder in a scrum for a… » 8/20/15 8:44pm 8/20/15 8:44pm

RGIII: "I Feel Like I'm The Best Quarterback In The League"

I have absolutely nothing to say about this, other than that lots of very talented people in all fields manage to go about their jobs and do great work without believing they’re literally the best in the world at it, and also that football season doesn’t officially begin until Robert Griffin III declares his belief… » 8/17/15 1:20pm 8/17/15 1:20pm

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

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
