Redskins' Gruden: Plan is to start RG3 over McCoy vs. Eagles


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2014) 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
(12/14/2014) 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
(12/14/2014) 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
(12/10/2014) 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
(12/10/2014) 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 Redskins' contingency plan 'for now'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said if quarterback Colt McCoy (neck) can't play Week 15 at the Giants, Robert Griffin III would start, reports the Washington Post. But Gruden added RG3 is the contingency plan "for now" and that Kirk Cousins also would get consideration.

"It's hard to say right now," Gruden said, per the paper. "I don't know how healthy [McCoy] is. I'm not going to make any assumptions or conclusions until I get all the tests back from the doctor."

McCoy left Sunday's shutout loss with a neck injury and was replaced by Griffin. Gruden hopes Griffin will be more decisive if he gets another chance.

"Hopefully he's taken a step back and taken everything in and just continuing to learn the position and learning about the concepts that we run, and hopefully he'll have more of a confident air about him when he jumps back in there, and there's less indecision is what we're hoping for," Gruden said.

"That he is decisive and will just pull the trigger and make plays," Gruden added. "We've just got to get him to relax and play and have some fun and lead a team, if he's the guy to do it."

McCoy had a stiff neck Monday morning and had to turn his whole body to look left or right, the paper said. McCoy replaced Griffin as the starter two weeks ago after Griffin was ineffective in three straight games.


Redskins' Robert Griffin III won't lobby for starting job in Week 15


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said after Sunday's loss to the Rams he will not make a push for the starting job this week. 

“If he decides to put me in, I’m ready to go, but I am not going to undermine anybody else or be that player because that’s not who I am,” Griffin said.

Griffin was forced into action late in the 4th quarter after starter Colt McCoy suffered a neck strain. Griffin was 3 of 4 for 33 yards in his one drive. 

The Redskins will head to New York in Week 15 to face the Giants. 


Robert Griffin III makes an appearance for Redskins


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made an appearance late against the Rams.

Griffin came on in relief of Coly McCoy, who had an awful start and left with a neck issue. Griffin got just one drive, but was able to complete three of his four attempts. He gained 33 yards. Griffin did take a sack on one of his two other dropbacks, losing 8 yards. 

It's unclear if Griffin will return to the starting lineup Week 15. If he does, he would take on the Giants. 


Report: 'Real chance' Robert Griffin starts again in Washington


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) There's a "real chance" Robert Griffin III starts at quarterback for Washington before the end of the season, according to ESPN.

Griffin has been in the news quite a bit lately. After being benched for the Colts game, there have been reports that Griffin's tenure in Washington has come to an end. That may no longer be the case. It's not known how Griffin would get his starting role back at this time.

Griffin has had quite the roller coaster of a season. After opening the season as the starter, he injured his ankle Week 2. Griffen then proceeded to miss the next six games, but was able to return to action against the Vikings. After a three week stint as the starter, he was benched in favor of Colt McCoy.


Report: Jay Gruden done with Robert Griffin III


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/4/2014) Washington coach Jay Gruden is done with quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to The Washington Post.

It's not just Griffin's on-field play that he frustrated the coach, it's also his off the field decisions. Gruden believes Griffin is more interested in increasing his personal brand than he is in learning how to be a better player, according to the report. 

Griffin has had a tough season. After being injured Week 2, he attempted to return from an ankle injury and hasn't performed to his usual standard. Griffin was replaced by Colt McCoy last week, and seems to be a long shot to get the job back this season.


Report: RG3 likely won't be back with Redskins next season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) After being benched in favor of quarterback Colt McCoy, it is highly unlikely Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will return to the team next season, people within the organization told Washington Post columnist Jason Reid.

Reid wrote first-year Redskins coach Jay Gruden was able to convince owner Daniel Snyder and team president/general manager Bruce Allen change was necessary. Snyder and Allen believed Griffin could return to his rookie form from 2012, when he went 9-6 as a starter and led Washington to a playoff berth. The duo hired Gruden to help get Griffin's career back on track, but in recent weeks they started to see the same shortcomings Gruden had notice since the preseason, teams officials told Reid.

Griffin is 13-20 with 7,272 passing yards and 1,404 rushing yards in 33 career games. He has 38 passing touchdowns, seven rushing touchdowns and 20 interceptions.


Gruden: Colt McCoy to start Week 13, RG3 will be backup QB


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed in a conference call with Colts reporters Wednesday quarterback Robert Griffin III has been benched in favor of Colt McCoy for Sunday's game at Indianapolis. Gruden added Griffin will be the backup quarterback Week 13. 

"Colt (McCoy) is going to start this week at quarterback. I felt like he deserved a bit of a promotion," Gruden said.

McCoy will be facing a Colts defense yielding 249.4 passing yards per game. Indianapolis has also allowed 18 passing touchdowns, while recording nine interceptions and 28 sacks in 11 games.


Report: Redskins benching RG3 for Colt McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Redskins are planning to start Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III at quarterback Sunday at Indianapolis, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. The move is expected to become official Wednesday when coach Jay Gruden meets with reporters, Schefter said.

Gruden informed the team Wednesday morning about the change at quarterback, according to Schefter.

McCoy went 2-0 while Griffin recovered from his dislocated ankle. Griffin threw for 106 yards, took five sacks and lost a fumble on his team's last offensive play Week 12 at San Francisco.

Over the last three games, all losses, Griffin has thrown for 564 yards and two touchdowns with three interceptions. He's holding the ball too long and not throwing with authority when he does let it fly.

Although Griffin is not part of Sunday's game plan, he remains "a significant part of the Redskins' long-term plan," Schefter said.


Report: Redskins' RG3 not starting Week 13 after all?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) According to Diana Russini of NBC 4 in Washington, Redskins coach Jay Gruden and the rest of the offensive coaching staff will meet with all of their quarterbacks Tuesday night to determine who will start Sunday against the Colts. Gruden told reporters the previous day that he has "every intent" to start Robert Griffin III at quarterback in Week 13.

During Washington's three-game losing skid, Griffin has compiled 564 passing yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions while registering a 79.3 passer rating and completing 65.8 percent of his passes.

If Griffin gets benched, the team will turn to Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy for Sunday.


Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2014) Despite struggling since coming back from a dislocated ankle, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Robert Griffin III will start Sunday at Indianapolis.

Gruden is not pleased with the offense’s lack of production and said the entire offense will be evaluated to find areas of improvement.

The Redskins have scored a total of 20 points over the last two games and Griffin has yet to throw multiple touchdown passes in a game this season.


Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin struggles in loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) 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 touchdown 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
(11/23/2014) 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
(11/22/2014) 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'


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) 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
(11/17/2014) 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 not the answer to your QB issues


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's return from a dislocated ankle has left the team with more questions than answers about the future of their quarterback position, and Fantasy owners can't feel too great about what he has done so far either.

Griffin completed 23 of 32 passes in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, but finished the game with just 14 Fantasy points, thanks to a pair of interceptions to just one touchdown. He has just 30 combined Fantasy points over two games since returning from injury, and has yet to break off a huge rushing play to justify his subpar passing numbers.

Griffin is completing plenty of passes, but the lack of big plays has been alarming. On 100 pass attempts, he has just two touchdowns, to three interceptions, and has yet to find the end zone with his feet. Griffin needs to prove he can be a consistent contributor before you trust him with your starting quarterback spot down the stretch. 


RG3 throws two interceptions during Week 11 loss vs. Bucs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III threw two interceptions and led just one scoring drive during a 27-7 loss Week 11 vs. Tampa Bay. Griffin completed 23 of 32 passes for 207 yards, while rushing for 41 yards on six carries.

Griffin's afternoon got off to an inauspicious start as his first pass of the game was intercepted. However, in his defense it was primarily the fault of tight end Niles Paul, who had trouble hauling in a short gain. The ball deflected off of Paul's hands and was picked off by a Tampa Bay defender.

Griffin's second interception caused more damage, as this time Bucs cornerback Johnathan Banks was able to haul in a deflected pass by one of his teammates and return it 19 yards for a touchdown late in the first quarter to give Tampa Bay a 10-0 lead.

Griffin's lone touchdown came with 11 seconds left in the second quarter, as running back Roy Helu took a short screen pass and turned up the field 30 yards for a touchdown.

The Redskins are back in action Week 12 at San Francisco.


Redskins' final Week 11 injury report: RG3, Kerrigan probable


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The Redskins unveiled their final injury report for Week 11 against Tampa Bay. Logan Paulsen (foot, hamstring) is the only player on the report listed as questionable. Robert Griffin III (ankle), Ryan Clark (shoulder), Ryan Kerrigan (wrist), Silas Redd (back) and Keenan Robinson (shoulder) were all labeled probable for Sunday.

RG3 has 'no doubt' he can be Redskins' franchise quarterback


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/4/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters Tuesday he understood the message coach Jay Gruden sent Monday when he said "the jury is still out" on the third-year quarterback. Griffin added, however, his confidence remains high and he "no doubt" believes he can be the Redskins' franchise quarterback.

"I’ve only played two games and a quarter," Griffin said, per The Washington Post. "I think what he’s saying is, coming into this year, everybody had a clean slate. Everybody’s got to prove why they should be out there and have the opportunity to make plays. I haven’t been out there and availability is the key. My job is to continue to get better each week, help this team win football games, and the rest will take care of itself and so I don’t take that any kind of way negatively."

Griffin said he doesn't feel an increased pressure to make a statement about his future over the team's final seven games.

"I don’t. I understand that everybody has a criticism, but you have to prove yourself every day -- day in, day out in this league and life in general," he said. "So, I do take that mindset towards it, but when it comes to being that franchise guy, it is what it is. I believe that I am. I believe that this organization knows that I am. I know those guys in that locker room know that I am, and there’s no doubt there. So, I don’t ever step on the field trying to make a claim saying, ‘I am the guy.’ It’s not like that. This is my team, and I’m going to lead it."


Jay Gruden says 'jury is still out' on RG3


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) After watching Robert Griffin III's performance off a six-game layoff, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said "the jury is still out" on the team's quarterback position.

Griffin hit 18 of 28 passes for 251 yards and a touchdown with one interception in Sunday's 29-26 loss at Minnesota. He held the ball too long at times and took five sacks.

"The jury is still out on that position," Gruden said, per ESPN.com. "We feel good about Robert’s progress so far and we’ve just got to continue to build and see how he does from week to week. Hopefully we can see that here at the end of the season. That’s what we have to see and what we have to find out."

Gruden said Griffin, who came back from a dislocated ankle, must develop more awareness in the pocket.

"You’ve got to have a clock in your head as a quarterback and sometimes he gets locked in somewhere and by the time he comes off to his secondary receiver, he feels the pocket closing in on him and doesn’t have time to move," Gruden said. "We can help him. The line can help him a little bit. I can help him with the drops to maybe get it out quicker. But for the most part he’s just got to continue to play and learn that and play with that feel in the pocket."
