Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin struggles in loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(11/23/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III continued to struggle during a 17-13 loss to the 49ers Sunday.
Griffin completed just 11 of his 19 pass attempts for 106 yards and no touchdowns. He also had four rushing carries for 11 yards. In five games, Griffin has yet to throw multiple touchdowns passes in one game.
In Week 13, the Redskins play at Indianapolis.
Report: Benching RG3 is 'not out of the question'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/23/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden has the authority to bench quarterback Robert Griffin III, if his play isn't good enough, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. A source told Rapoport that benching Griffin is "not out of the question."
The landscape has changed for RG3 and there are no more special rules for him, including his family having all-access to the team's facilities.
However, the Redskins will try to make it easy on Griffin during Sunday's game against the 49ers. The game plan is for Griffin to make quick throws to the team's playmakers. They want to give Griffin easy reads, so he can get rid of the football quickly. They have tinkered with the game plan all week, according to Rapoport.
Team sources said Gruden received support from upper management on his critical assessment of Griffin's play.
"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden told NFL Network recently. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."
Redskins coach Jay Gruden: 'Clock is ticking' for Robert Griffin III
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(11/22/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that the "clock is ticking" for quarterback Robert Griffin III and that he has "auditioned long enough." Gruden also added that the team needs to "find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."
"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden said. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."
Griffin is 32 starts into his Redskins career but has been plagued by injuries. This season alone, he has had 33 possessions, 14 of which resulted in punts and six which have resulted in turnovers. Only five of those drives have resulted in touchdowns.
"His biggest thing, he's been coddled for so long. It's not a negative, he's just been so good, he just hasn't had a lot of negative publicity," Gruden said. "Everybody's loved him. Some adversity is striking hard at him now, and how he reacts to that off the field, his mental state of mind, how it affects his confidence, hopefully it's not in a negative way. I read Drew Brees said after a couple interceptions, 'I'm never gonna lose confidence, I'm gonna come out firing all the time.'"
Over his last two starts, Griffin has completed 41 of 60 pass attempts (68.3 percent), compiling 458 yards along with two touchdowns and three interceptions.
"It's a production-based business. We haven't won many games lately with him," Gruden said. "We gotta figure out a way to get in the end zone. We just have to score. I don't care how we do it. If it's running the zone-read, I don't care. Quarterback sneaks, I don't give a damn. We gotta find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."
Redskins QB Robert Griffin: 'I want to play better'

|(11/19/14) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has responded to public criticism uttered by Jay Gruden in regard to his struggles on the field.
Gruden criticized his footwork, reading of defenses and overall performance after a poor game Sunday against Tampa Bay.
"Jay wants me to play better," Griffin told the Washington Times. "I want to play better. We're focused on San Francisco, and that's all I've got to say about that."
The Redskins meet the 49ers on the road in Week 12.
Gruden: RG3 'needs to worry about himself and not everybody else'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/17/14) Redskins coach Jay Gruden didn't hold back Monday when talking about the struggles of quarterback Robert Griffin III during Sunday's home loss against the Bucs.
"Robert had some fundamental flaws," Gruden said, per NFL.com. "His footwork was below average. He took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three on a couple occasions and that can't happen. He stepped up when he didn't have to step up, and he stepped into pressure. He read the wrong side of the field a couple times.
"So, from his basic performance just critiquing Robert, it's not even close to good enough to what we expect from the quarterback position."
Gruden also responded Monday to Griffin's postgame comments in which he said a quarterback only plays well if his teammates do their job.
"First of all, Robert needs to understand he needs to worry about himself No. 1 and not everybody else," Gruden said. "... It's my job to worry about everybody else. Yes, everybody else needs to improve, but it's not his place. His place is to talk about himself and he knows that. He just elaborated a little too much and he'll learn from it. He's 24 years old."
|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.
