Robert Griffin III: I was put in ‘impossible situation, Mike Shanahan didn’t want me

Robert Griffin

Robert Griffin III has not said much publicly in recent months, but a radio interview featuring one of his former teammates has inspired the free agent quarterback to come out swinging.

Santana Moss, who was a wide receiver with the Washington Redskins when Griffin was still there, told Chad Dukes of 106.7 The Fan that RG3 had a “that’s what you get” attitude after Mike Shanahan — who had benched Griffin — was fired. Griffin fired back by calling Moss a liar, and he later sent some tweets saying he was put in an “impossible situation” with Shanahan.

No one is going to dispute that Griffin and Shanahan never got along, though there has been plenty of debate over who was at fault for their relationship failing. In reality, both shared some of the blame. Still, Moss’s remarks aren’t the first ones we have heard about RG3 thinking he was above the coaching staff when he was with the Redskins.
