The guys he left behind there sent some pointed remarks back at him.
Via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Washington safety DeAngelo Hall had the sharpest rebuke.
“Keenan said that? That’s interesting,” Hall said. “Where’s he playing at? I didn’t know he was even on a team. You can print that.”
Robinson said he turned down an extension after the 2014 season so he could leave, and he signed with the Giants in free agency to try to join a team with a more positive/winning culture.
“I’m pretty sure he would say that,” tackle Trent Williams said. “I’m pretty sure he doesn’t really have any good feelings toward the organization. Obviously, he’s not here anymore. Comments like that are human nature.”
They’re 0-2 at the moment which makes them an easy target, but coach Jay Gruden said he thought his team showed resilience last year when a slow start ended with a playoff berth.
“He has his own point of view and own observations,” Gruden said. “We faced adversity last year, and we handled it quite well. We were 2-4 at one time . . . and came back to win nine games and our division.
“I didn’t see any finger-pointing to that magnitude that he’s talking about. Nobody likes to lose, so there’s going to be some grumbling. I can’t make 63 guys and 20 coaches happy every day. We’re not all going to be smiling and singing [‘Kumbaya’].
“We’re not happy, but we’re going to keep working and keep grinding. We have a good group of guys that aren’t blaming each other, but they’re willing to get better.”
Maybe it’s changed since Robinson left.
