Jay Gruden, Robert Griffin III insist there's progress


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Despite Robert Griffin III's preseason struggles, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told ESPN.com the third-year quarterback "is further along than it appears he is. Based on his production [Saturday], a lot of people would say he’s not further along.

"He’s a lot further along than he gets credit for. All you have to look at is practice and game tape, and it wasn’t very good from anybody. But I’ve seen him practice, and I’ve seen him come a long way. [Saturday] didn’t show how much he’s come forward."

Griffin went 5 of 8 for 20 yards with an interception against the Ravens, posting a 27.1 passer rating.

Griffin said "there will be overreactions all over the place. It's our job to make sure we stay cool, calm and collected and keep fighting on."

The struggles continue for Robert Griffin Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Washington quarterback Robert Griffin continued his struggles Saturday night against the Ravens in Baltimore.

Griffin was intercepted by Terrence Brooks on his first pass attempt before a defensive pass interference call wiped out the play. A few plays later he was sacked by Brooks. On the ensuing drive, he mishandled a snap and recovered his own fumble.

Griffin was intercepted by C.J. Mosley on his first pass attempt after halftime, ending a rough night. He completed 5 of 8 passes for 20 yards, with no touchdowns, one interception and three sacks. He registered a 27.1 passer rating.

Robert Griffin III knows he must improve at avoiding hits


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who rushed four times for 24 yards Monday night, acknowledged he must do a better job of avoiding hits at the end of his runs. On one play, he got hit twice near Cleveland's sideline.

"I got caught in an awkward situation on the first one and I tried to slide. It was a bad attempt at a slide," Griffin told USA Today. "And then on the sideline, on their sideline, I was just in a situation there where I thought I was going to be able to get out of bounds, and (a defender) was running out of bounds with (tight end) Jordan Reed, and he came back in, so I had to protect myself, so that's why I put my shoulder down. And then my third attempt was very successful. I got down and got out of harm's way."

While Griffin said his thigh bruise is "nothing to worry about," he said he has to improve the way he slides at the end of plays.

"It's going to continually be a work in progress," he told the paper. "I'm going to keep focusing on getting down in those situations, knowing when to fight for the extra yards and when not to," he said. "So the fans have nothing to worry about there. I'll keep getting better at that, I promise you that."

Coach Jay Gruden said it's an issue "we have to continue to talk to him about — how important he is to this team and this franchise. When he gets out of the pocket, he needs to protect himself. He's had a habit in his career of being able to get himself out of those predicaments with his speed and his athleticism. But here it's a 16-game season, with the great talent across the league in the NFL, (and) he's got to pick his shots and learn how to get down a little bit better."


Robert Griffin III shows improvement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) After a disheartening performance in practice Sunday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made quicker and better decisions Monday, especially in the two-minute drill, reports ESPN.com.

"It was a lot smoother," Griffin said. "We felt in rhythm, getting to the right places with the ball, everybody being in the right place, making the right checks at the line. That's what camp is about. We will have days where it seems up and down. Today was a day we were climbing a lot. It takes repetition. It takes guys being on their stuff."

Offensive coordinator Sean McVay said Griffin's decision-making is improving daily. "Any time you get experience feeling the rush, feeling the soft spots, keeping your eyes downfield, remaining a passer and also knowing when my internal clock goes off ... it's [helpful]."


Redskins dispel notion of quarterback controversy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) With reports circulating that Kirk Cousins has been outplaying Robert Griffin III in training camp, Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay sought to dispel any notion of a quarterback controversy. "Robert is our starting quarterback," McVay emphatically told reporters.

Report: Kirk Cousins outperforming Robert Griffin III


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) The Redskins' Robert Griffin III "didn't look like the best quarterback on his own team" in joint practices with the Patriots last week, reports ESPN.com. Kirk Cousins played better than Griffin "from the perpsective of running the offense, fine-tuned mechanics and how decisively the ball came out of his hand," the report said.

That sentiment was echoed by several people in the Patriots' organization, the report added.


Robert Griffin III leads scoring drive


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Kirk Cousins in a groove against Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played most of the first half against the Patriots, completing 9 of 13 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown. Cousins hit wideout Aldrick Robinson for a 10-yard score late in the first quarter.

RG3: 'We will have definite mismatches'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III said he can't wait to start working with an offensive cast that includes running back Alfred Morris, receivers DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts, and tight end Jordan Reed.

"I'm eager to see how we mesh together," Griffin told ESPN.com. "That's exciting for a quarterback. We can work matchups. We will have definite mismatches and then it will be good to distribute the ball around."

Griffin is excited about the variety of routes his receivers can run.

"All those guys can run," Griffin said. "None of them are limited to routes. It's not a limited route tree, which is exciting for a quarterback and exciting for an offensive coordinator calling plays. Now you know I can put these guys in any position and they can all run the routes."


Jay Gruden: I won't turn Robert Griffin III 'into a robot'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) New Redskins coach Jay Gruden said in a radio interview that he won't turn quarterback Robert Griffin III into a pocket-passing robot.

"Robert's the quarterback and ultimately Robert will play the position the way Robert plays it," Gruden told Andy Pollin. "You know, I'm not gonna turn him into a robot and say, ‘Stay in [the pocket] no matter what.' Part of his effectiveness as a quarterback is his ability to run. But will we have designed runs for him? Maybe not as many as they had last year, but there's a possibility of having those."

Gruden said the most important thing is for Griffin to make good decisions.

"Obviously when we call drop-back passes, we want him to be a drop-back passer, but if things break down like sometimes they do – sometimes guys are covered, they're not open – he needs to be Robert and make good decisions," Gruden said. "And sometimes throwing it away is a good decision, sometimes running for two yards is a good decision and getting down. So he's got to play the position the way he plays it."


Robert Griffin III embracing Jay Gruden's approach


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III declined to compare new coach Jay Gruden with former coach Mike Shanahan, but RG3 made it clear he's enjoying working with Gruden.

"I just know that Jay sees things from a quarterback’s perspective, having been a quarterback, and being a younger coach," Griffin told the Washington Post. "He knows quarterbacks need weapons, so we’ve added weapons. He knows quarterbacks need protection, so we’ve added protection. Really, in this league and this game, it’s about making the quarterback comfortable, and that’s what he’s in the process of doing, and at the end of the day, it’s on me to make everything work, and that’s what I’m going to do.

"Coach is giving me all the proper tools, and he’s putting the tools in the shed," Griffin added. "I’m ready to go to work. I’ve got my hard hat on, and I think everybody else [does] too."

Griffin told the paper his top offseason priorities are to re-establish sound fundamentals and regain confidence after a year he described as “a whole journey of second-guessing and wondering."


Jay Gruden: RG3 'works out more than anybody'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) With Robert Griffin III unveiling his new personal logo, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he's not concerned about the quarterback getting distracted by off-field pursuits.

"He works out more than anybody I’ve ever seen," Gruden told SiriusXM NFL Radio. "If I ever felt like that was an issue, or if he was spending more time trying to create logos than he was working out and getting himself ready to play, then there’d be an issue. But there’s no issue in my mind.

"I think nowadays, these quarterbacks and these players in general, they have people do a lot of work for them," Gruden continued. "They have these mangers, these agents, and these commercial people working for them, and they’re doing all the work. I don’t think Robert’s doing any. He’s just signing off on it. Adidas is doing all the logo things for him. So if it’s extra money for him, have at it. As far as dedication and his desire to win and his work ethic, that is not to be questioned. He’s unlike anybody I’ve ever seen as far as that’s concerned."


RG3 pumped about team's firepower


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) With receiver DeSean Jackson joining the team, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has the best collection of weapons he's had since entering the league.

“It’s an exciting time to be a Redskins fan and a part of this team because of the firepower that we have,” Griffin told the Washington Post. “Everyone needs to understand that we haven’t won anything yet, and these next few months will be about building those bonds and chemistry so that we can.”


No one's called about Kirk Cousins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team has not received any inquiries about third-year quarterback Kirk Cousins, who would welcome a trade and a chance to start, reports the Washington Post.

“No. no. nothing,” Gruden said. “We’re excited to have Kirk. You need two great quarterbacks on your team. you never know. The way Robert plays and the style he plays with, you never know what can happen. Injuries are a part of the game. You need two excellent quarterbacks and we’re fortunate to have two of the better quarterbacks.”


Redskins will listen to offers for Kirk Cousins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) The Redskins aren't shopping backup quarterback Kirk Cousins, but will listen to offers, reports the Washington Post. The team would be willing to trade Cousins for a second-round draft pick, the report said.

“It’s not a case of looking to trade him,” a source told the paper. “That’s not the situation. But it’s not a case of there being absolutely no interest in a trade under any circumstances, either. It would all depend on what someone might offer.”

Cousins was a fourth-round pick in 2012, and it's unlikely any team would give up a second-rounder for him. Washington would be content to go into 2014 with Cousins again backing up Robert Griffin III.


Kirk Cousins will push his cause 'in a classy way'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins wants a chance to compete for the starting job, or to be traded. But he's vowing not to be a distraction. “I’m gonna communicate my desire to play in a classy way,” Cousins said, per the Washington Post.

“I don’t want to do it in a way that’s gonna hurt our organization or reflect poorly on me or the team. But yeah, I absolutely want to play, and that’s not a complicated fact. But we’ll see what happens. We’ll see what’s in the cards. And if I’m not good enough, I’ve got to accept that, but all I’m looking for is that chance.”

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Robert Griffin III has chance to improve


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Griffin already has started to throw with his receivers this offseason. And he plans to work with his teammates again in Arizona in March. Griffin also will work out again with Terry Shea, the former NFL quarterbacks coach who trained him before the NFL draft. There's a desire to improve his footwork and to speed up his release

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jay Gruden to emphasize Robert Griffin III's running ability


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) New Redskins coach Jay Gruden plans to take advantage of quarterback Robert Griffin III's running ability. “I worked with Andy Dalton for three years in Cincinnati, and built a foundation of concepts and protections that I think worked well with him,” Gruden told SI.com.

“With Robert, we’ll obviously use his skill set differently," he continued. "When it comes to the quarterback position, my job is to make him comfortable and productive. I’m not going to try to turn RG3 into Andy Dalton or Drew Brees. He isn’t them. They’re not him. I would be foolish to try to turn RG3 into a pocket passer. It would be foolish.

"The way he is as a runner, we have to take advantage of that. He strikes fear into defensive coordinators when he runs outside. I’m going to let him be himself.”
