On Wednesday, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III accused the Rams of dirty play. On Thursday, the Rams shrugged off the complaints.
“It’s not the Big 12,” running back Steven Jackson said Thursday. “I don’t think we’re a dirty team. I think we’re a team that’s hungry, young and eager and ready to make a turnaround in the franchise.”
Coach Jeff Fisher agreed, without referring to the conference in which Griffin played college football.
“We’re going to play aggressive and we’re going to play hard to the whistle and that’s it,” Fisher said. “This is the National Football League, he’s going to be a good player and if he took issue with how we played, so be it. I’m not concerned about that. I’m more concerned about the Bears.”
The Bears should be concerned about the Rams. With cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins already showing that they can get under the skin of Redskins receiver Josh Morgan and Lions receiver Titus Young, respectively, look for Cortnoris to hassle and harass and harangue Brandon Marshall all day long.
That’s one of the points I made in defending my prediction that the Rams will upset the Bears. For the balance of the back-and-forth I had today with MDS on PFT Live, press the button below.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
