Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

If the 2013 Washington Redskins season had a chapter in the franchise encyclopedia it should simply be titled ‘Ebb and Flow.’

Just seven days after it seemed everything was finally in place to start another late season run, the Redskins let a 21-7 slip away within the matter of minutes en route to one of the most prolific regular season, single quarter showings in NFL history.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III, fresh off a game where he nearly had 400 total yards, struggled to move the chains against the Broncos. Continually seeing pressure from Denver’s front seven, Griffin III’s jersey by the end of the game was far too dirty. It didn’t help that there was disconnection with his receiving corps as well.

When the guys did get separation, they either struggled to haul in a routine catch or Griffin III was off target like he was on the throw to Joshua Morgan in the fourth quarter.

After the game, Griffin III spoke of the frustration of dropping to 2-5.

“It’s very frustrating,” Griffin III said. “They say all the time it’s a cliché in this league is that your record says who you are and I just don’t believe we’re a 2-5 football team. We prove it at times when we can get big leads and play with really good teams like the Broncos are and we just let it get out of hand.”

    If RG3 doesn’t run more, this is just how it is going to be. His running and threat of the run is what opens everything up. It is pretty clear he cannot play the pocket passer role because he seems to freak out, panic, and make bad decisions whenever his first read isn’t open. He doesn’t see the field well. Telegraphs throws, doesn’t read defenses well. All which have been masked by is running ability. Either run the same offense as last year or trade him while you can still get a first round pick back for him.
