Jay Gruden says false start calls on RG3 were “a little insane”

grudenrg3 AP

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III picked up two false start penalties in the first quarter of Monday night’s preseason game, and coach Jay Gruden wasn’t happy about it.

Gruden wasn’t unhappy with Griffin. He was unhappy that the officials were so strict about the false start rules that they flagged Griffin for merely moving while barking out signals before the play.

“We’ve just got to make sure we don’t have him do any sudden movement with his hands or try to really move his head and shoulders,” Gruden said, via the Washington Post. “But that to me was a little insane.”

Gruden said it’s hard for a quarterback to yell loud enough to be heard over the crowd while being perfectly still.

“In a loud stadium, in order to enunciate your words, sometimes you have to move your chest to yell. Am I right? ‘HUT!’ ” Gruden said. “Sometimes you yell, and that’s what he was doing.”

If the officials are going to call false starts that strictly in the regular season, Griffin will need to find a way to yell without moving.

    What a bust this guy is.

  2. grndizzle says: Aug 21, 2014 1:38 PM

    It seemed like he was simulating the snap to me. Keep throwing them flags ref.

  3. aceakking says: Aug 21, 2014 1:38 PM

    I agree. The false start calls on RG3 are a little insane. But they are not as crazy as the insane calls Bill Leavy makes against the Steelers’ opponents.

  4. stash918 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:39 PM

    Jay Gruden is complaining about false start penalties. OK. Just wait until the guy who can’t slide or run out of bounds runs into a healthy JPP and then sees stars for about 6 weeks. Hi, Kirk Cousins.

  5. renbutler says: Aug 21, 2014 1:40 PM

    It was a preseason home game. There was no noise for Griffin to yell over.

  6. andrewluck12 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:40 PM

    Blaming the refs already? The nfl Washington franchise ( not sure if redskins is still allowed) is such a mess already

  7. dragonfly99 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:40 PM

    I was hoping this guy wouldn’t be as annoying as his brother Jon, but it doesn’t look that way.

  8. aceakking says: Aug 21, 2014 1:42 PM

    andrewluck12, well your team tanked the 2011 season to get Luck so I wouldn’t talk if I were you. You could easily have been the one stuck with RG3 if Irsay wasn’t so sly.

  9. bigmikeskinsfan says: Aug 21, 2014 1:43 PM

    REDSKINS quarterback…

    Jay is absolutely right…the refs threw an insane amount of flags in that game to the point where even Jon Gruden couldn’t find something positive to say.

  10. dirtydrynn27 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:44 PM

    stash918 why dont you worry about your own team,you troll!!!! and wait until Sheli Manning runs into a healthy Brian Orakpo!!!

  11. macneil4025 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:45 PM

    Jay Gruden is going to be a train wreck as a head coach, the skins have become the laughing stock of the NFL

  12. thestrategyexpert says: Aug 21, 2014 1:47 PM

    I can scream pretty darn loud without budging very much, not sure what he’s talking about. Using the body language in conjunction with the noise is when it starts becoming about trying to trick the other team into committing a penalty rather than winning through having a commanding presence.

  13. leevi98 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:47 PM

    Skins and Robert Griffin article…let the hate begin….again…well haters..keep hating. Sounds more like jealousy and wishing bad on a person…grow up!

  14. stash918 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:48 PM

    He can’t, or won’t, slide or run out of bounds so it’s just a matter of time before someone like Haloti Ngata shreds him again. Remember that play and how he hasn’t learned? Well if you don’t, Kirk Cousins was your QB after that, and RGIII doesn’t show any signs of being able to change. Dislike all you want, Washington Franchise fans. It’s coming, like it or not. JPP has your number and he’s gonna wreck him– legally.

  15. jbeagles23 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:50 PM

    31 other qbs do it. This guy is just plain horrible. I understand redskins fans won’t admit it but that trade has set them back years. What is he? The fifth or sixth best qb of that draft?

  16. celly84 says: Aug 21, 2014 1:52 PM

    i didn’t see this game…

    ..but there are PLENTY games I’ve watched where Peyton does the SAME erratic movement but have yet to ever see him get called for a penalty.

  17. ravenbiker says: Aug 21, 2014 1:53 PM

    Meanwhile, Peyton Manning can set, then stand up, change the play, set, then stand up, ad nauseum without a flag.
    It’s not like we don’t know rule enforcement is selective. If you’re one of the golden ones, you don’t get flagged, but if you’re not, be ready for extra laundry coming your way.

  18. chargerdillon says: Aug 21, 2014 1:54 PM

    They called those same fouls on Philip Rivers during an actual regular season game too.

    Just wait until it happens during the regular season.

    It’s just another way the Refs control the outcome of the game before the ball is even snapped.

  19. kudzuwish says: Aug 21, 2014 1:56 PM

    Haven’t fans been complaining about refs taking over games for years? Now officials are going to be even more involved in the outcomes of games with these nitpicky penalties.

    Roger Gooddell, giving the fans what they don’t want since he took over.

  20. davidblanket says: Aug 21, 2014 1:57 PM

    Guessing that Jay will hear from the League this week.

  21. danind says: Aug 21, 2014 2:00 PM

    what a joke, just say he was trying to draw the other team offsides and he moved around too much. add that to the list of things RG3 cant do, along with reading defenses, throwing the ball accurately, avoiding contact and not throwing his coach under the buss.

    and lets also disregard the fact that RG3 is trying to draw the other team offsides in a meaningless preseason game. chump city.

  22. danind says: Aug 21, 2014 2:01 PM

    yelling over the crowd? did anyone watch that game (at home by the way), there were maybe 20,000 people there. and no one was cheering since RG3 isn’t any good so nothing to cheer for.

    How do you know how erratic RG111′s movements were compared to what better QB’s do if you didn’t watch the game?

  24. GettingNoRespect says: Aug 21, 2014 2:02 PM

    It’s funny that we see a lot of the “name changers” in here saying how much we suck. Maybe their name-change attitude starts with their hatred of the team and not the term.

  25. kamthechancellor says: Aug 21, 2014 2:04 PM

    First Hall crying about the new “emphasis” and now the coach crying about the refs too? Careful, you starting to sound a lot like the 49ers.

  26. censorshipstinks says: Aug 21, 2014 2:06 PM

    Just call them even. Wilson, Rodgers, and Manning brothers better watch out. They are notorious for doing the same thing.

  27. jdrewsy says: Aug 21, 2014 2:06 PM

    As loud as we 12′s are when the visiting team has the ball, we are completely silent when Russell Wilson and the offense take the ball.

    Maybe the Washington fans are not following these obvious rules?

    Go Hawks!

  28. purpleguy says: Aug 21, 2014 2:06 PM

    Wait a second, as a home game, aren’t the Skins fans smart enough to shut up when the team is on offense? Or were they just screaming in joy that RGIII wasn’t injured yet?

  29. rgtre10 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:09 PM

    Well i’d have like to have seen those same refs call a game with Manning and Brees, Brady behind center with all the theatrics they go through before the snap…yes we’ve all seen it the stepping forward pointing, twisting from side to side signaling receivers that it’s an audible. I mean seriously it was pathetic. And you don’t think some DL don’t see the QB lift his leg for a snap count to the center wouldn’t or shouldn’t that draw a flag for the same reason?

    How do you know how erratic RG111’s movements were compared to what better QB’s do if you didn’t watch the game?

    I didn’t need to watch this game for a comparison to prove my point. I’ve watched enough football and seen enough games where Peyton will do just as the poster below me stated and get NO flags called and “lesser” QBs will yell the cadence and get flagged…in the same game no less.

    So, no, watching this one specific game doesn’t matter in this case.

  31. dalcow4 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:12 PM

    Now, if they’d only call it on Peyton Manning.

  32. steelerdynasty2010 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:12 PM

    Tom Brady does this EVERY snap

  33. rockstart42 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:16 PM

    You can change and rest plays all you want but when you make a sudden quick movement during the cadence it is a false start and last year there were several called. Eli, Brees and I think even Brady had one called on him last year.

  34. greymares says: Aug 21, 2014 2:17 PM

    Let’s see when Payton Manning does his barks if he will get flagged.

    That dude is always moving his head.

  42. drcap says: Aug 21, 2014 2:31 PM

    The false start penalties are a symptom of a bigger problem… RG3 needs to work on his mechanics. He never stands in the same position from snap-to-snap, never places his feet the same way, he seems to throw off-balance frequently and with different arm motions.

    There is no denying the raw talent that RG3 displays. But he won’t achieve consistency until he masters the basics. And jerking his hands before the snap is just a minor part of that mastery.

  43. enkay85 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:35 PM

    It’s the PRESEASON people. He wasn’t using a hard count because it was too loud or too quiet, it’s called practicing various aspects of your game.

    The goal line stand on the 1 yard line where they ran it 4 times in a row and failed also was a test – testing jumbo package. Preseason games are used to test specific aspects of a the offense/defense. People saying he can’ t hard count or it was dumb that he did it at home make zero sense to me.

    Too much hype surrounding this kid when he first came into the league and the biggest problem was that he brought into it himself. We see it all the time… As soon as defenses see him a little bit they adjust. I’m not saying this kid won’t be good because he has the arm but he’s not revolutionizing the position. Vick didn’t. Tebow didn’t. Neither will RGIII, Kap or Manziel. Year after year the best QB’s in the league are the one’s who can stay in the pocket and sling it. Brady, Manning, Brees, Rodgers.

  48. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Aug 21, 2014 2:45 PM

    The calls were right. RG moved his head enough to draw defenders offsides and I noticed he attempted it after they had been penalized 5 yards. Seemed like he was trying to get a cheap 5 by drawing the defense offside. Long season ahead for Jay and crew.

  49. officialgame says: Aug 21, 2014 2:49 PM

    The refs forewarned you in a pre season game and the head coach objects. That’s stupid because you can’t fight city hall. How happy will coach be when they call it in a regular season game? Man up, coach your QB and stop winning.

  50. fantom21 says: Aug 21, 2014 2:55 PM

    I have a suspicion that refs favor certain teams and I bet they have conversations amongst their circle regarding this. If I had the money I would hire an investigative team to try and find out this secret. It’s obvious who the teams are based on QB star level but you can’t be 100% positive until it’s proven. Anyways I’ve always felt refs have held grudges against the QB tier right below the superstar tier. The reason I say QB instead of teams is because it’s a superstar driven league, and we can’t have too many stars or else they wouldn’t be stars right? cynical rant over.

  51. 23rdusernameused says: Aug 21, 2014 2:56 PM

    Jay Gruden is a little insane for taking that coaching job for the dumpster fire org that is the wash DC football team!

    Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III.

  53. therealtrenches says: Aug 21, 2014 3:01 PM

    Whining about false start penalties that pretty much looked like false starts to everyone else.

    That’s…not a good look for a rookie head coach. Nor is it the way to get this team out of the dumpster and into contention.

    Washington fans deserve better than the the guy who probably spent most of his childhood being verbally abused by a young Jon Gruden. What a sad fate for a once storied franchise.

  54. ddmcd1974 says: Aug 21, 2014 3:06 PM

    So, you’re saying refs go out there every week and jeopardize their 6 figure income job because they happen to like one QB over the other? Is that what you’re saying? Or….maybe the teams with “QB star level” just play better and win more because they are better.

  56. harrisonhits2 says: Aug 21, 2014 3:16 PM

    Losers blame the refs when they lose, winners blame themselves for not playing well enough.

    And lets be real about this, virtually every game played last weekend had 20+ flags. The game with Washington in it was no different than any other.

  57. urbusted2 says: Aug 21, 2014 3:16 PM

    I believe it was the head movement right? Hard count is fine, but you can’t move the head.

    LOL at another person that never played football commenting on football/rules. you are comparing apples to oranges bud. apples as in the legal things a QB can do before the snap (i.e. lifting the leg, going up and down the line making an audible), and oranges as in what RG3 was doing in faking the snap by raising his shoulders and simulating having the ball. two different things, you should really spend even more time on the couch and pay attention a bit more.

    From the rulebook: “No player of offensive team may charge or move abruptly, after assuming set position, in such manner as to lead defense to believe snap has started.”

    This is especially the case when the QB is saying “hut.”

    Maybe you should get your facts straight before you post, genius.

  62. mitchem85 says: Aug 21, 2014 3:22 PM

    Gosh some of you are so stupid. Where in this article did it say the penalty came from him having to move because the crowd was being too loud? It didn’t, morons. Gruden was using that as an example to why it’s crazy for that to be a penalty. The broncos and colts fans were as silent as can be for Manning, but he still made his gestures and moved and yelled his audibles. Some of you need to learn to read. Also, why is there’s a “Seahawk fan”(which there were hardly any just 5 years ago) posting on every post about luck and rg3? If rg3 or luck were seattles qb, people would be saying “Russell Wilson who?!”

  63. danind says: Aug 21, 2014 3:22 PM

    Gotta love RG3 trying to trick his way into success. guy is focusing on his hard count (which he did wrong, shocking) instead of those things that might help him be a better QB…but yeah RG3, you are so polished you better work on the tiny details in preseason. smh

    It shouldn’t matter what RGIII does with his hands or head, defenders are supposed to watch for ball movement. The rule in itself is complete garbage. I would have thought most people who played at any level would know that.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I specifically cited examples where Peyton Manning has set himself behind center, placed his hands down to receive the ball, then stood up and moved around, yelling while twisting his entire body around. That is a false start by any interpretation of the rules, yet, they do not call it.

  69. shayeezy says: Aug 21, 2014 3:41 PM

    phyllis rivers does the same thing all the time, and i’ve only seen one game where a ref penalized for him multiple times until he stopped. then he was back to doing it the next week, knowing not every ref would call it. it’s not just to be heard – they specifically do it to make the defense jump and give blitz clues away, and it should be called as a penalty when it’s done blatantly.

    Right here:

    Gruden said it’s hard for a quarterback to yell loud enough to be heard over the crowd while being perfectly still.

    “In a loud stadium, in order to enunciate your words, sometimes you have to move your chest to yell. Am I right? ‘HUT!’ ” Gruden said. “Sometimes you yell, and that’s what he was doing.”

    Tell us how we’re stupid again?

    under center: the quarterback is directly behind the center with his hands in position to take the snap.

    So once the quarterback is under center and stops moving for 1 second, they are set. At this point, if they lift their head, jerk arms out to gesture, anything that is not a slow and deliberate gesture, it can be declared a false start. Nowhere in the rule book does it say the quarterback has to go into his ‘cadence’ to commit a false start.

    Basically, almost all of Peyton Manning’s theatrics COULD be flagged as false starts if the referees chose to do so.
    Enough bickering about it. As usual, it is a judgement call by the referees, very subjective and some players get more leeway than others, same as the roughing the passer calls.

    One of the refs is going to injure his throwing shoulder with all of the yellow laundry on the field this preseason!

    Is JPP still in the league? Haven’t heard from him in a couple of years!! Hail to the REDSKINS!!

    I’m not a fan of a lot of this year’s “points of emphasis” but one thing I’m glad they’re cracking down on is pre-snap movement on the OL. Centers and OGs in particular have been getting away with more and more shenanigans in this regard the past few years and it’s time to get that stuff back in check.

    Nothing like a bootlicker for a coach! This will not end well for Washington.

    yea its sad that RG3-13 will have to yell without moving. You know, like every othe QB abd back up QB who wants to play in the NFL. The excuses never stop.

  86. gammynomnom says: Aug 21, 2014 8:27 PM

    And yes, it is clear that a league that changed the rules for how your name can be written on a jersey for RG3-13 is clearly out to “get him”

    Kirk Cousins was not called for any false starts…why, he know how to play the position. KC1 HTTR

    I am still completely blown away that Jay Gruden has actually been given a proffessional football coaching role in the NFL. I mean I know Danny wants someone to cower like a dog to him and RG needs to basically run the team to feel “appreciated”, but this is a complete joke. He and the DC team will be the laughing stock of the league… And this is in a division with Romo and Garret for God’s sake! Talk about overmatched for your job. This ends in less than 2 years.

    Sometimes I tell my children, “It’s hard to remain calm when someone does that”, and the other will say, “I’m not doing that”. I tell them that I didn’t say that you were doing it now, I am talking about a general situation. You know, something that does happen, but may no exactly apply here. Like when Gruden said “In a loud stadium” and not “It was loud”. So, you are not stupid. You are exactly as smart as my young children. Congrats

    I’m so glad Jay gruden is gone from Cincy. yeah he helped make our offense better but I also think his play calling had a hand in losing those playoff games. You don’t call plays keep your best player on the team out of the game. They went one whole half, in a playoff game, without throwing the ball to AJ Green. How do you do that? just ignorance.
