Washington Post calls out RG3

Griffin Getty Images

It’s hard to pinpoint the moment the monster was created.

It may have happened when Robert Griffin III lit up the Cowboys on Thanksgiving.  It possibly occurred when he torched the Saints in Week One of the 2012 season.  It might have been when he flashed his million-dollar smile and his fancy socks after officially becoming the second overall pick in the draft.

There’s a chance it was triggered the moment the Redskins sent three first-round picks and a second-round pick to St. Louis for the future ability to select him.

Regardless, a franchise starved for a franchise quarterback made Griffin the most popular — and in turn the most powerful — player on the team, necessarily putting an unproven rookie above his teammates.  He proved himself worthy of special treatment during a season that started with sizzle, slid to a 3-6 funk, and ended with an unlikely playoff berth, but the handling of a knee that imploded in the playoffs (I still wonder whether the ACL tear originally happened when he was hit by Haloti Ngata in December) has created a team that has lost its sense of team.

Lost in the current controversy regarding the team’s name is that, as a practical matter, the name changed at some point in the last 20 months.  The Redskins no longer are the Redskins.  They’re Robert Griffin III and the Redskins, and folks in D.C. are starting to notice that’s not the best way to be successful.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post looks at whether Griffin has the passing ability to ever be elite.  Sally Jenkins of the Post explores the more important question — whether Griffin has become an “unteachable know-it-all” who will always find someone else to blame for his failure to become what many in D.C. had already proclaimed him to be.

We reported earlier in the season that one teammate perceived that coach Mike Shanahan for the first time talked to Griffin as if he were any other player.  The media in D.C. seems to now be doing the same.

Next will be the fans, and the end result could be the next new football regime in D.C. deciding whether Griffin or some other quarterback (Kirk Cousins?) gives the team the best possible chance to win a Super Bowl, or two.

Until the guy with the ultimate power to change the name of the team realizes that the team can’t succeed as Robert Griffin III and the Redskins — and unless Griffin buys in to becoming something other than the face of a still-dysfunctional franchise — the team will never be known again as Washington Redskins, NFL Champions.

    It’s about time they did.

    Probably not hard for him to get an ego when there are dozens of license plates around the area with different ways of saying RG3.

    I saw a jeep that had “RJeep3″

    What has he done???

    Same thing happened to Portis. Snyder becomes his best bud and he becomes untouchable by coaches.

    He does come off as a know-it-all. I could have seen this coming from a mile. Whenever the media puts someone up on a pedestal and that person does not show humility, the moment they slip up, the media will facilitate their precipitous decline. Griffin balked when a vet like McNabb reached out to give him advice on how to handle the success. Since he declined on learning off of the experience of others, who were once in his position, he can learn the hard way.

    Robert Griffin III needs to change his name to a symbol like Prince did.

    A symbol meaning “Player formerly known as RGIII and currently know as Flacco-esque”

  9. btd5504 says: Oct 31, 2013 3:40 PM

    It’s amazing how the media can literally ruin the perception of an athlete by taking fragments of things they said and making absolute facts out of them.

    The fans aren’t turning on RGIII because he’s not giving us a reason too. Get the kid some weapons and a full off-season injury free, and we won’t be having this discussion going forward.

  10. binkystevens says: Oct 31, 2013 3:41 PM

    Woah, let’s pump the brakes here a bit. I don’t think there’s a new regime change anytime soon, nor do I think Griffin is in any danger of losing his job. Growing pains, sure; but let’s hold off on the hyperbole for a bit.

    I want to know how RGKnee differs from Vick.

    RG3 appears to have better vision and a bit more accuracy than Vick, but not by much.

    More importantly, the hits RG3 takes look a lot worse than with other QBs like Wilson or Luck.

    It’s just like watching Vick. Every time I see him get sacked or hit, I go ‘wow that must have hurt’. Same with RG3.

    I would worry about that more than his ‘cam-ish’ make up.

  13. wisconsinhillfolk says: Oct 31, 2013 3:46 PM

    I live in the DC area, but am not a Redskins fan. This article is spot on. Everyone treats this guy like he’s the second coming…and he hasn’t done anything.

    I was at a Redskins preseason game this year and RGIII wasn’t even playing, but they followed him everywhere on the field. When he wasn’t up on the giant scoreboard he was talking to teammates and throwing some passes, but immediately once the camera panned on him, he would run sprints and the crowd would cheer.

    His mechanics are awful. They are better off with Cousins.

  18. Slim Charles says: Oct 31, 2013 3:52 PM

    Idiotic. What exactly are we supposed to call him out for? Fans liking him? I’m not a Skins fan but RG3 hasn’t been anything close to arrogant or entitled in anything I’ve seen him say or do. Is he supposed to say “Hey, sorry for the media that hyped me up and is now turning on me because I haven’t won a Super Bowl after A YEAR AND A HALF IN THE LEAGUE. Also, sorry for having a slow start to the season after suffering a knee injury and being rushed back to the field by a coach desperate to prove he can win without Elway and because I know you guys would call me a coward if I did what was best for me health-wise.”

    Give me a break.

  22. kfish21 says: Oct 31, 2013 3:54 PM

    Booooooooooooo! Its not his fault the media and the franchise BLEW him up from day one, and he is extremely humble and eager to learn and better himself in every single interview that I’ve seen and it has been proven by his amazing motivation and determination to have the fastest recovery possible. They put way too much pressure on him from day one forcing RGIII chants from the crowd even at training camp before he had even thrown his first ball of the season and now that he isn’t staying on the pedestal they put him on…..they are blaming him for being conceited and this is all his fault too? This is a bunch of bull crap!

    there’s plenty of successful people in the redskins organization that can help him with that. he’s gotta accept every invite to sit down and talk with someone?

    circuscivics: “Griffin balked when a vet like McNabb reached out to give him advice”

    Please. McNabb was trying to stay relevant and besides, if McNabb wants to give advice let him give it to players on his former team, the Eagles. He was a bust in DC and not there long enough to offer advice to anybody.

  26. annapterp says: Oct 31, 2013 3:55 PM

    Kirk Cousins is the better long term QB for the Redskins. They’ll figure it out sooner or later. Hopefully for Cousins it will be after the OLine is improved and Griffin has had the crap beat out of him.

    The guy can play. He can read and make any throw, and scares D’s with other talents. Look at comments made by defensive players after playing RG3, NYG especially. RG3 is a clean, respectful and talented player. I don’t get why so many people want to hate him. All he does is play to the limit and speak with class.

  29. jimmysee says: Oct 31, 2013 4:11 PM

    I don’t hate the guy — he is hugely talented.

    But if he keeps playing like he has, he’s going to severely shorten his career.

    It looks to me like a Mike Vick in the making.

  30. scaredhitless says: Oct 31, 2013 4:12 PM

    The media (by media I mean ESPN) always puts football players on a pedestal…. when America takes down out, it’s never nice or gentle, they simply goes the Fredo Corleone route.

    Can you say Tim Tebow?

  31. nflofficeadmin says: Oct 31, 2013 4:12 PM

    A lot of blind hate here for Robert. The only thing undesirable about his game is his size. He’s a heady QB that was put in harms way by his coach… and that may have cost him some of his athleticism. He hasn’t looked like the same player, but time will tell.

  32. logicalvoicesays says: Oct 31, 2013 4:14 PM

    Your all bitter your team’s QB will never be as talented and smart as Robert. #Coldhardfact

    You gotta be kidding. We gave up quite a bit to get him, no way they choose to go with a backup. Our Oline is extremely suspect, and that’s being kind, so having a drop back passer behind that is asking for trouble. Also, when did McNabb become god? RG is a grown man, he can take advice from whomever he chooses.

  34. barrywhererufrom says: Oct 31, 2013 4:17 PM

    I really hope RGIII succeeds. It has to be frustrating for Skins fans. The guy has a lot of talent and shows flashes of dominance last year. Now his injury has slowed him and his defense has slipped. I have a feeling Shanahan will be the person who takes the fall here. RG III has all the skills you need to be a winning quaterback. I hope it happens for him. He is fighting to define the type of player he is. Sadly the WPost has entered the discussion and the heat has been turned up even more on him. I wouldn’t bet against him turning his play and the skins season around.

  35. immafubared says: Oct 31, 2013 4:18 PM

    I read an interesting tid bit from the late Charleton Heston. When he started acting and old veteran took him aside and told him son ‘ Its not important for an actor to disregard the bad reviews. It is important for an actor to disregard the good reviews’.

    Griffin must be able to brush off all criticism, good or bad and just play the game.

    Well, those delusional fans and the media pundits who opened wide for Griffin a year ago instead of doing their job need to realize the simple fact that the roster is pretty terrible. Haslett has always been a pretty mediocre DC and the offensive line and receiver position is a joke. But other than that, everything’s peachy.

    Believed the hype about himself and when he discovered this year that he’s not actually Superman incarnate his ego isn’t able to deal with that fact.

    Funny how just because his mouth proclaimed he was fully healed and ready to go, that his body disagreed. Now he’s mentally turned into a mess that’s having a lot of trouble dealing with the stress of the Washington team’s failures this year.

  40. trollhammer20 says: Oct 31, 2013 4:26 PM

    people are so fickle. to turn on guy in year after a major knee surgery (looking at you Shanahan) is absurd. the media should remember the bums who played qb there before and cut him some slack

    As dad always used to say…The fish stinks at the head

  43. blu4l1fe says: Oct 31, 2013 4:31 PM

    There’s no questioning his gift. But what he gains in ability and gift, he lacks in maturity. And this is not totally his fault. Everything that happened from the minute he was chosen by Washington up to now, hasn’t been easy, especially for someone that doesn’t have the mental capacity to handle such.

    But what has added and seemingly complicated this already ugly situation, is the way he’s handle it and, overall, himself. I can’t even begin to imagine the pressure he must’ve gone through and goes through. But, and again, with a lot of young athletes, they do succumb to the pressure and just follows the first thing that they think is right.

    I’m not saying I am right or all-knowing, but can you imagine the Redskins if:

    – Griffin left at the point of the game last year when the injury actually occurred?
    – He went with the “sensible” rejab regimen, and not rushed it?
    – Sat out a couple or a few of the first games the skins have at the beginning of this season?

    I don’t know, and there is a lot of second-guessing at this point, but one thing’s for sure, this circus has become evident, even for a lot of folks in the DC area.

  44. coltzfan166 says: Oct 31, 2013 4:33 PM

    Let’s not get nuts. Vick has had two seasons below 50% completions. RG3 was over 60% last year and his 59% this season is still better than any season Vick has ever had.

    nice skewage of data there bud. rgarbage3 gets most of his stats in garbage time when the game is in hand for the opposing team, aka the green bay game, when green bay was up 38-3 and BOB was in there against 3rd string defenders racking up his stats , when BOB was complete garbage in the 1st half. keep believing the hype about your lamewad qb, everybody can see the facts except you

  48. coltzfan166 says: Oct 31, 2013 4:44 PM

    Btw, so glad my team didn’t pick him. And all these analysts said we should pick him over Luck.

  49. kimmycho233 says: Oct 31, 2013 4:45 PM

    I’m not a fan of rg3 at all ..however the media treatment that was given to rg3 ultimately didn’t help. Last year media outlets acted like he was the greatest Qb that had ever played. Yet when I watched him last year it all didn’t add up to me. He played okay was athletic…but his actual play didn’t match the hype. It just doesn’t help to overly hype any of these guys.

  50. mwcarolina says: Oct 31, 2013 4:51 PM

    Firstly McNabb cares for himself, not RG3 so agree with RG3 on NOT talking with him. Now, I think people ate blowing this WAY out of proportion. What’s he done to be compared to Vick or a football diva?? Does he have slit to learn about being a pocket passer, yes, but he hasn’t shown me ANY diva like attitude. As for Cousins, he is NOT better than RG3. He gets baited into throwing interceptions as seen in Denver

    I’ve said this for years: we are to quick to crown somebody as a future HOFer (as in before their first ever game) and we’re too quick to call them busts. Remember a certain first overall pick named Cam Newton. Pretty good rookie year and everybody called him the next great thing. I said he’d slump in year two and bounce back in year three. Hmmmm…what happened? We try to view everybody’s career through a historical perspective. These guys need TIME!!!!!

  56. wisconsinhillfolk says: Oct 31, 2013 5:03 PM

  57. balzer41 says: Oct 31, 2013 5:04 PM

    It’s amazing to me that only now, people are starting to figure out that Bob3 is a “know it all” and a “me only” kind of player. He’s a media prostitute that will do anything to get in the spotlight. I have said this since he proclaimed himself the Heisman winner. Even though he did win it, a humble person would never proclaim himself the winner. A humble person would acknowledge his peers instead of himself. Bob3 will be a career backup when the goofs in Washington finally figure out he can’t read a defense to save his life, has terrible mechanics, and makes stupid decisions. He may come off as a nice guy, but he’s arrogant and he sucks as an NFL caliber QB.

  58. pixelito says: Oct 31, 2013 5:04 PM

    RGIII’s career wound up right where I predicted. 2 years earlier than I thought.

  59. dmnirican says: Oct 31, 2013 5:05 PM

    I gotta say this sort of thing has all sorts of racial undertones to it. He’s a quarterback – the most visible, high-profile position on the field – for a high-profile team on the east coast. Whenever a team has a marquee QB, it’s always portrayed as “That QB and his team.” No one has ever had a problem discussing “Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts” (and still going in Denver, now) or “Tom Brady and the New England Patriots” or “Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints.” When Brett Favre was in his prime, all we ever heard about was “Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers” – all quarterbacks who received huge attention and arguably have personas bigger than their teams. And now, of late, we’re getting the “Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts” treatment ad nauseum. In all those cases except for Brady, they got all that hype and attention BEFORE their teams won Super Bowls. I’m a Broncos fan, and while I appreciate what Peyton’s been doing for us since he joined the team, I get absolutely sick of hearing the media hype him up more than the team.

    But in all those cases, no one has ever claimed that “Maybe hyping Peyton Manning up so much with Denver might not be the best thing for them since he hasn’t really accomplished anything with them yet.” Instead, it’s the opposite. Against the Redskins last week, the Denver defense was the biggest reason for the second half blowout, but Peyton kept getting all the hype for his “comeback” despite turning over the ball 4 times – two of which kept Washington in the game when we were trying to close it out.

    RGIII gets a huge amount of hype because his performance last year fulfilled the initial hype and he looks like he’s got a very good career ahead of him. Saying he shouldn’t be coddled is debatable, except that that treatment apparently worked very well for him last year. And no one has ever broached the topic of being coddled with most of those other high profile QB’s.

  61. janvanflac says: Oct 31, 2013 5:11 PM

    Not a fan of the Potomac Basin Indigenous Peoples, but I think RG3 is a good player with potential to be great…BUT….he plays for a crap team, and due to the nature of injuries in the NFL, you do not ever mortgage your future for one player especially on an un-talented roster.

  62. skinsfan91 says: Oct 31, 2013 5:13 PM

    In spite of his tortured misuse of the English language and still somewhat myopic view of ME rather than TEAM, Cam Newton is showing signs that he’s maturing these days, so perhaps RGIII will do the same after a horrible second season.

    Dealing with defeat and ego deflation can be a great builder of character… IF the person has the inner qualities to get past deep feelings of entitlement. This season may be the most important one of Newton. Next season may the be big one for RGIII.

  71. kappy32 says: Oct 31, 2013 6:44 PM

    He has horrendous throwing mechanics that seem to have gotten worse this season. He has always had a less than over-the-top throwing motion, and last year it was between 3/4 & over-the-top, but this year it is below 3/4, between pure side-arm & 3/4. There has not been a QB, with the exception of Brett Favre,who has been consistently good with bad mechanics. That is only his arm slot, his footwork is also an absolute mess this year. If you don’t believe me, compare tape from last year to this year, I did & you can see it. I don’t know if that’s a result of him compensating for the knee, not having time to work on his mechanics because of the knee rehab, or a sense of “I made it” – like Cam Newton did after his rookie year – and he felt as though he didn’t need to work on something as small as throwing mechanics. Regardless of the reason, he needs to fix it because he will never be successful throwing the way he is. Defenses have cracked down on the gimmick spread option & they are forcing QBs to beat them with their arms now. The spread option has opened up for Kaeparnick because he has shown defenses he is just as deadly with his arm as he is his legs. Until RGMe shows he can beat teams with his arm, they are going to clamp down on his running game, making him play through what it clearly a weakness of his.

    “The Rams are still laughing their way to the bank with all the top 10 draft picks coming their way from Washington”

    that would be one at most, since they did t get one out ofctexdeal last year and this is the last year the REDSKINS forfeit their first rounder.

    “all” those top 10 draft picks, keerist man! what ain’t no country I ever heard of.

    RG3 has a lot of things to improve for sure, but Kirk Cousins is NOT better than him. He looked even worse against Denver than RG3 did. Just give Griffin time. He is struggling the way most rookie QBs struggle.

    I live in the DC area, but am not a Redskins fan. This article is spot on. Everyone treats this guy like he’s the second coming…and he hasn’t done anything.

    He led that team to an NFC Championship last year knucklehead. Right out of the gate he was awesome to watch and the Skins were exciting. That hadn’t happened for quite some time.

    After being hit by Haloti everything changed. The coach did not help matters by continuing to play him and he did himself no favors by continuing the all in for week one BS.

    That has now all come to a head. I think what folks forget is the salary cap hit the skins took these past couple years. It was a severe blow and one that has impacted the whole team negatively. No crying just a fact. Next year even without a first and no salary cap penalties the team should look much different and Bob will have had time to improve the knee and his game. That is if he lives through this season of getting clobbered. Cousins may have won a couple of those games but he is no Bob.

    Uh.. He didn’t lead anyone to the NFC Champ game… R-words were one and done last year. Bob got bounced.

    “They’re Robert Griffin III and the Redskins, and folks in D.C. are starting to notice that’s not the best way to be successful.”

    Not the best way? Really?

    Tom Brady and the Patriots
    Peyton Manning and the Broncos
    Drew Brees and the Saints

    I notice that most successful teams make the QB the most popular and powerful player on the team. Which league are you following?

    Diva? ??This is ridiculous. Has he ever thrown a locker room tandrum ??? Blamed his teammates? ?? Every time I see him on the sidelines he is looking at the coverage photos and listening to his coach tentatively. So how is he a know it all ??? This loser reporter is just trying to make a story for her own recognition. When RG3 said he wasn’t letting anyone tell him how to play he was talking about media blow hards and analysts saying what he needs to do. Tim Hasselbeck criticized him and recently. Of all nobodies…..Tim? Besides how can people assume they know his character off a few sound bites….. plz stop drinking the Kool Aid…..HTTR
