Tweet Another week, another teammate calls out RGIII… After Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that ended when a last-minute Redskins drive to tie the game was halted by Robert Griffin III throwing an interception into the end zone, RGIII hinted that his receivers couldn’t get open, leading to the end result. “We had a certain concept with running and nobody got open so I was backing up, and in the situation where you get a sack there, it ends the game,” Griffin said. “I was trying to throw the ball to the back of the end zone.  It didn’t get to where I wanted it to go.” Tuesday, Redskins receiver Santana Moss commented on Griffin’s claims, saying that RGIII needs to be more of a leader and take some responsibility for the play: “As a leader, you understand that if you’re involved in the situation, whether you’re the receiver, the quarterback, the guys making the tackle, whoever.  Regardless of the outcome, good or bad, you have to at some point, stand up and say me or I,” Moss said on D.C. radio’s 106.7 The Fan. “If we’re going to win games, we need to win games with our guy saying, ‘At the end of the day, I didn’t make a play,’ regardless of if it wasn’t him. “I’m not sitting here to tell you why it didn’t happen, or who didn’t make the play for me to make a play,” Moss said. “If I’m the guy, that’s at the end of the day have the ball in my hand, and we’re sitting there and the game is over because of me, I didn’t do enough to make the play.” Moss also went on to criticize the team’s PR department for not doing a better job of helping their players understand how their comments can be perceived by public opinion: “[There] should be someone who’s doing whatever they’re doing for us, when it comes down to us doing these interviews, needs to step up and talk to the guys that’s doing these interviews, to know what to say and when to say it,” Moss said. Moss makes some great points. RGIII has been praised as the savior in Washington after guiding the Redskins to the playoffs last season, but so far this season there has been far too much of him passing the blame for ineffectiveness to others instead of him taking accountability for their poor play to date. Quarterbacks get most of the credit when a team is playing well, and Moss correctly pointed out that it’s Griffin’s job as the star QB to take more responsibility. “I don’t need to be going back and forth in the media about who didn’t do this and who didn’t do what,” Moss said.  “At the end of the day, I was seen with the ball in my hand last, as a quarterback I’m saying, and if it didn’t get done then I’m going to let you know it was me.  Whether it was me or not. It was me. And I’m going to get better. And we’re going to get better together.” While they are still in contention to win NFC East, the Redskins season is on the brink, and unless there’s some drastic changes in team culture they’re in danger of suffering a setback after an encouraging 2012. -ALR
