Redskins' Gruden: Plan is to start RG3 over McCoy vs. Eagles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the plan is for Robert Griffin III to start at quarterback Saturday against the Eagles.
Griffin replaced Colt McCoy in Sunday's game against the Giants after McCoy aggravated a neck injury on the opening drive. Gruden said McCoy will continue to be monitored by doctors during the week.
Gruden added the team will try to build the offense around Griffin's strengths. He said it's important for the run game to be effective in order for Griffin to be productive.
"It's important for our offense to rally around him, and to play well around him, also," Gruden said. "Moving forward, this is Robert's team right now."
Robert Griffin III impresses off the bench
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III put together a solid effort in Week 15, as he came off the bench in place of an injured Colt McCoy.
Griffin, who was benched for poor performance three weeks ago, put together arguably his best performance of the season Sunday. He completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and a touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards to finish the game with 19 Fantasy points.
McCoy's injury doesn't seem too serious, but it is possible Griffin remains in the starting lineup moving forward anyways. The Eagles come up on the schedule in Week 16, and Griffin would be just a desperation play at this point in the season.
RG3 throws for 236 yards as he replaces injured Colt McCoy
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/14/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III fared admirably off the bench in place of quarterback Colt McCoy, who aggravated a neck injury on the first drive Sunday against the Giants. Unfortunately, the Redskins still lost, 24-13, Week 15.
Griffin completed 18 of 27 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 46 yards on five carries. Sadly, Griffin was under pressure all afternoon. He was sacked seven times and fumbled three times.
While Griffin wasn't credited with any lost fumbles, he did have an 8-yard touchdown run on the final play of the first half overturned because it was ruled he was fumbling the football as he went into the end zone.
Griffin's lone touchdown pass was a 9-yarder to running back Chris Thompson in the second quarter, which put Washington ahead 10-7.
The Redskins are back in action Week 16 vs. Philadelphia.
"We've got to look at film and see where we stand," coach Jay Gruden said about his quarterback situation. "Robert's definitely in the mix. He came out here and competed, which I like."
Redskins' Robert Griffin III: 'My confidence is still sky high'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said Wednesday that his confidence remains "sky high" despite being benched in favor of Colt McCoy and serving as a backup over the last two weeks, CSNWashington.com reports.
"Your confidence can’t be shaken by anything that happens in your career," Griffin said after Wednesday’s practice. "So, for me, my confidence is still sky high."
McCoy was limited in practice Wednesday after suffering a neck strain in Week 14. Coach Jay Gruden has yet to name a starter for Week 15.
"Whatever Coach decides as far as the quarterback position, what we’re going to do going forward, that’s up to him," Griffin said. "I’m just here to help this team win."
The Redskins enter Sunday's matchup with the Giants on a five-game losing streak and with a 3-10 record on the season.
Redskins' Jay Gruden not ready to name starting QB for Week 15
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(12/10/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday he is not ready to name his starting quarterback between Colt McCoy and Robert Griffin III.
"I know you guys are contacting all your sources available, but you guys are not gonna know this week," Gruden said Wednesday.
McCoy, who sufferd a neck strain in Week 14, was limited in practice Wednesday. Gruden said McCoy "has a chance" to start.
|Robert Griffin III is ready for a rebound year, and we expect him to bounce back in a big way. Griffin was miserable in 2013 in his attempt to come back from a tough knee injury in the 2012 playoffs. He passed for 3,203 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on 60 percent completions, and he ran 86 times for 489 yards and no touchdowns before being benched for the final three games. Compare that to his rookie year when he had 3,200 passing yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions on 66 percent completions and 120 carries for 815 yards and seven touchdowns, and you can see the drop-off. Griffin was hindered last year by a knee brace and limited offseason work, but the brace is gone and Griffin has been working out all offseason. He also got two new weapons in DeSean Jackson and Andre Roberts, and along with Pierre Garcon and Jordan Reed, Griffin's receiving corps could be dominant. We like Griffin as a Top 10 Fantasy quarterback coming into the year. He's worth drafting with a mid-round pick, and he could provide big rewards, especially if he's comfortable running again. There's obvious injury risk with Griffin, but quarterback is deep with plenty of No. 2 quarterbacks to pair him with. He could easily rebound as a Top 10 or even Top 5 Fantasy quarterback this year, and we're excited for his outlook.
