Griffin III: ‘We’re All Sticking Together’

Quarterback Robert Griffin III had one of his best performances of the season–but he refuses to bask in the spotlight of a game that opened with 12 consecutive completions.

His team lost and were eliminated from playoff contention.

With four games remaining on the slate, Griffin III answered questions about his approach to playing football with no playoff appearance being a reality and how the team really is away from the media.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

He’d done it so many times before. Fake the handoff, bootleg out, turn, fire a laser to Pierre Garcon.

Instead of hitting his No. 1 target in stride, the ball landed in the hands of Donte Whitner. That’s the kind of night No. 10 had Monday.

Self-admitting that 2013 has gone far from the high expectations, quarterback Robert Griffin III said you’ll never seen him quit on himself or his teammates. There are five regular season games left and it’d be ridiculous to pack it in now.

He addressed his Monday performance and looked ahead to the Giants at his afternoon press conference which was slightly earlier than usual on this modified week of preparation after losing a day due to MNF and Thanksgiving.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Quarterback Robert Griffin III’s 3rd-and-1 pass in the fourth quarter is a play still being strung out and dissected as “one of those plays” a player wish they could have back.

He does.

No. 10, however, can’t dwell on the matter. He’s facing a wealthy secondary that boasts Pro Bowl and first round talent across the board.

Griffin III explained his mindset facing a “tough team”, his leadership style, comparison to Colin Kaepernick and more.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

A trying season added another difficult loss to the season summary, this time in front of a Philadelphia crowd that wanted nothing more than put the Redskins further behind in the playoff race.

Time and time again, the Redskins shoot themselves in the foot with mistakes, none more disappointing than Robert Griffin III’s two turnovers. Both happened in the red zone and both could have put the Redskins in the driver’s seat had they not been given to the guys in green.

Had the Redskins scored on the sack-fumble, even if it was just a field goal, it would have given the offense something to build on heading into the locker room. So far this season they’ve gotten off to porous starts that end in holes too deep to climb out of.

As for the interception, Griffin III explained a little bit of what was going scrolling through his mind as the play unraveled.

“Right there a guy comes straight at me [and] I’m just trying to throw it as far as I can and me backing up, trying to throw it out of the back of the endzone [at] the distance it was, it’s something that I shouldn’t do. It’s something I’ll learn from. Like I said, we’ll get better from it.”

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Posted by Stephen Czarda on November 13, 2013 – 3:59 pm

Robert Griffin III has had more success against the Eagles than any other team during his nascent professional career.

Connecting on nearly 70 percent of his 88 attempted passes for 727 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions, the sophomore has found ways to beat Philly before.

He’ll need to find that magic similar to Week 11’s  last season where his perfect quarterback rating set the table for a run no one saw coming once again on Sunday.

Notorious for petulantly throwing aggressive fandom around the home field, Eagles fans believe they are tasting blood. The Redskins, however, are not letting the three games below .500 record squash their playoff hopes.

Anyway, 10 weeks after making his season debut, Griffin III addressed a large media contingent and focused his press conference on the offense’s improvement since the last Redskins-Eagles game.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

He tried his hardest, but in the end Robert Griffin III’s three touchdown performance against the Minnesota Vikings wasn’t enough to leave the Land of 1,000 Lakes with victory.

Completing 24 of his 37 passes, the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year dazzled the Minnesota crowd. The obnoxious horn that the Vikings blow whenever something good happens for them was silenced.

Entering the locker room at halftime, the Redskins held a 10-point lead and looked destined to string together consecutive wins for the first time this season.

But as they did against the Broncos, the second half provided nothing but frustration and a plane ride back to the DMV pondering what exactly went wrong.

While no team wants to enter Week 11 3-6, Griffin III hammered home the fact this season is far from over in his postgame press conference.

Each year bring new challenges and for quarterback Robert Griffin III, he’s faced more than he’d probably ever want to deal with.

Recovering from major knee surgery, having to harness his competitive spirit in rehab, fighting through frustrating performances and now living up to last year’s Redskins-Vikings performance where he did this.

Coming off a solid performance, Griffin III addressed a No. 10 starved audience about all things Minnesota Vikings. After all it had been a whole 48 hours since they last spoke to him.

Whether you call him Robert Griffin III, RGIII, Bobby Griff (Tony Kornheiser) or simply Robert, the reigning AP Offensive Rookie of the Year had one of his better games of the season.

Shaking off a bizarre, pinball-esque interception in his own end zone, Griffin III connected on nearly 72 percent of his passes for 291 yards. On the final drive of the game he hit Jordan Reed and Pierre Garcon on beautiful dimes that only a handful of men on this earth could complete.

While he may have only rushed for 17 yards on the day, he picked and chose his spots, including a third down run that had a pretty painful looking landing but he brushed it off and trotted back to the huddle.

Also did you see the triple option plays? Even Santana Moss got a carry.

Anyway, despite his required presence at the podium, Griffin III was quick to deflect praise to his teammates.

Player’s Turn: Robert Griffin III At The Mic

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has played in 23 NFL games since being selected with the second overall pick in last year’s draft.

Despite his nascent NFL career he has experience more than most 10-year veterans.

With cameras following his every step, a magical 76-yard that has already been added to the fabric of historical moments, winning multiple awards, leading a team that was left for dead by most “experts” and performing after major knee surgery with a championship craved city on his back, it’s fair to say he isn’t living the “typical” NFL life and his resume extends far past his draft classmates.

But after Sunday’s fourth quarter breakdown, he tasted something he’ll never want again—bitter defeat.

A self-admitted frustrating game, Griffin III chatted with a larger media continent about both the past and this weekend’s Chargers showdown.

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.”
