The Washington Redskins are playing their way out of contention in a shockingly wide open NFC East division. Their loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday dropped Washington to 3-7. Robert Griffin III has been rusty throughout most of the season as he continues to recover from offseason knee surgery, but he refused to take the blame for the loss to Philly.
After the Redskins’ comeback attempt fell short thanks in part to a brutal interception by RG3 late in the game, Griffin told reporters his team was “outcoached.” He then seemed to blame his receivers for not getting open on the play where he threw the pick.
“We had a certain concept with running and nobody got open so I was backing up, and in the situation where you get a sack there, it ends the game,” Griffin said, according to the Washington Post. “I was trying to throw the ball to the back of the end zone. It didn’t get to where I wanted it to go.”
Veteran wide receiver Santana Moss obviously did not appreciate RG3 going public with his assessment of what went wrong. Moss (and many others) believe Griffin needs to learn to take responsibility as a quarterback.
