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 Yesterday 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 Yesterday 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

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

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 3:24pm 9/18/14 3:24pm

Washington Has A Fake Quarterback Controversy On Its Hands

I'm mindful of playing into the silly-season stupidity here and making a big deal of this, because it's surely empty bluster: Robert Griffin III is not about to lose his starting job to Kirk Cousins. But the growing criticism of Griffin's quarterback play is most certainly a real thing, and some of it's even coming… » 8/26/14 11:05am 8/26/14 11:05am

Robert Griffin III Has Had It With Fans Complaining About Dumb Things

The Skins QB has stayed largely silent since the end of the season—he's been around long enough to know that after a 3-13 season, you can't win no matter what you say. But on Friday he made a lengthy post on Facebook. On the face of it, it's a response to one stupid person complaining about the arm sleeve he wears.… » 1/13/14 4:05pm 1/13/14 4:05pm
