The season is not going according to plan for the Washington Redskins. After a 0-3 start the boo-birds and haters are coming out of the woodwork faster than politicians when a lobbyist  is  offering  free dinner. One of the latest to join in on the hate parade was former defensive back Fred Smoot. And he got a little creative. While making a recent radio appearance Smoot let loose on the team, the coach, and its superstar with some nice comments  going as far as to suggest that the team owner, Dan Snyder, needs to fire Shanahan now. Not just  Shanahan--but the Red Lobster: “Robert Griffin III has been a Redskin now for one and a half years. If you’re gonna change his coach and you want a coach to grow with him...you have to do it now. And right now, I think the Red Lobster’s working his way outta here. I think Shanahan is working his way out of here.” Red lobster? Ummm...okay. While Shanahan  will have some responisbility to bear no matter what as the head coach, it isn't all on him. Maybe he  could have played RG3 in the preseason to get some of the kinks out. Maybe RG3 should not be playing at all. It is also important to note that RG3 has accounted for close to 1000 yards of offense himself while the defense has given up  more than that. But I digress... Smoot was not satisfied with just blasting the Red Lobster. He had some good words for Griffin as well: “It’s about time somebody be honest,” Smoot said. “Sometimes RGIII can be a brat, alright?...With Luck and Wilson, and it’s a different vibe. Sometimes I’m starting to think that RGIII is really really buying into the attention.....” What the? Has he not watched Griffin talk? Brat? As Ochocinco  would say--child please! Loading...

Ex-Redskins Fred Smoot Calls RG3 a Brat & Mike Shanahan “The Red Lobster”

Fred Smoot is never at a lost for words, so when he went on with Holden and Danny of 106.7 The Fan in DC, he didn’t hold his tongue on RG3 and Mike Shanahan. “The Red Lobster and RGIII, they’re not compatible right now,” Smoot said, pretty much ensuring that nickname will stick. “And right now, you can’t have one without the other. I think one thing the Red Lobster has...

Smoot – RGIII is a brat & Shanahan is a red lobster

It’s been one of hell of a day with former NFL players bashing their former teams. First you had Carl Banks ripping the New York Giants a new one for not having any pride.

Redskins fans thought for sure that their fortunes were changing in 2012, when the arrival of Robert Griffin III ushered in a 10-6 season and a playoff berth, the first winning season and playoff appearance since 2007. Just three games into the 2013 campaign, though, Washington supporters are already doubting the ability of the team and sinking into the doldrums — and the local...

RG3 reportedly wanted to get away from running the read-option

During today’s show on ESPN’s First Take,  analyst Skip Bayless mentioned that a Redskins insider claims that Robert Griffin III told the coaching staff that he wants to get away from read-option this season because he believes he can be as good of a pass as  Peyton Manning. It certainly looks like the Skins have abandoned the read-option for the most part.  If Griffin did...

Dick Stockton refers to RG3 as “Robert Griffin Jr” during broadcast

You would think that a player who is as well known as Robert Griffin III wouldn’t get his name wrong during a broadcast, but Fox’s Dick Stockton called him “Robert Griffin Jr.”  Not sure why or how this happened, but a surprising mistake nonetheless.

Lions rally, drop RGIII, 'Skins

Robert Griffin III went head-first instead of sliding, so when the ball popped out it was a fumble. Aldrick Robinson had a touchdown catch in his hands, but he couldn't quite maintain possession as he hit the ground in the end zone. Thanks to the turf, the Detroit Lions ended 74 years of failure in the nation's capital. The pair of fourth-quarter bobbles sent the Lions...

Redskins-Raiders Preview

Although at least one teammate feels Robert Griffin III has yet to return to his elite form, the Washington Redskins have reason to believe they can recover from the franchise's worst start in 12 years. Perhaps a matchup with a banged-up Oakland Raiders team is what they need to begin that turnaround. The visiting Redskins try again for their first win Sunday when they face...

The fast times and short life of the Read Option; Understanding the Read Option:

I remember the firestorm of excitement last year when Colin Kaepernick and Robert Griffin III were making shambles of offenses using the read option.  I told anyone that would listen that there is no way the read option would play a big role in the NFL next year.  I was laughed at during that time, but the laughing has stopped. What is the Read Option: First of...
