After a Monday night performance that epitomized his sophomore season -- a kick below the belt -- Robert Griffin III was part frustrated, part embarrassed in an awkward press conference with reporters.
Those emotions evidently carried over to the locker room, where the Redskins' slumping quarterback was greeted by the elder Griffin.
Nice of pop to pay a visit, but words can do little to undo the regression of RG3, who threw for just 127 yards and an interception in Monday night's blowout loss to the Niners.
Perhaps more alarming, Griffin III was sacked four times and hit throughout the evening, as Washington dropped to 3-8, their playoff hopes all but crushed.
Hope RG2 relayed that it's too little too late.

According to Mike Silver of the NFL Network, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn’t happy with head Mike Shanahan since he isn’t will to keep his “bad plays” off the board during team meetings.

Why couldn’t it be Meg?
RGIII continues to take hits. Unfortunately, the shot he took on Monday Night Football from San Francisco 49er Aldon Smith was a direct hit to his boys. Nothing like the entire country focusing in on the family jewels.
It was bad enough that he got hit, but then he jumped up and down to get them to drop.

You can barely say hello to quarterbacks in the NFL these days without getting a penalty. And don’t even think about shaking their hand. However, as you can see in the GIF below, feel free to kick opposing quarterbacks in the nuts. 49ers defensive end Aldon Smith gave Redskins quarterback Bobby Griffin III a swift kick and received a zero-yard penalty.

As if Monday night in Landover, Maryland could have been worse, the Redskins’ Robert Griffin III took a blow to his manhood quite literally. Just under two minutes into the game, Griffin took the snap and set up to pass as the 49ers’ Aldon Smith rushed and was stood up. In the process of being pushed back by the offensive lineman, up came Smith’s foot right into Griffin’s...
Back in September, during the first week of the season, I wondered if the read option could last in the NFL for an extended period of time. In that piece, I said it was possible that the read option could be like play action, something that offensive coordinators with the appropriate quarterback could always stash in their playbook and whip it out whenever necessary.
Entering Week 12, six teams that won their division last season were in danger of missing the playoffs this year. That includes the two clubs playing Monday night, the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins. The Niners are 6-point Bovada road favorites with live betting available.
