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

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

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
