Jay Gruden: 'I'm not giving up' on RG3

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden made the decision on Wednesday to bench former No. 2 overall pick Robert Griffin III in favor of veteran backup Colt McCoy. The decision in and itself isn’t a major surprise considering how poorly RGIII has performed on the football field since a surprising rookie campaign in 2012.

Is it time for the Redskins to move on from Robert Griffin III?

It was not that long ago when Robert Griffin III was thought to be the savior for the Washington Redskins. The team had been something of a mess since Joe Gibbs retired for the first time following the 1992 season. Daniel Snyder then bought the team in 1999, ushering in a period of bad football that is yet to be curtailed. Griffin, drafted with the second-overall pick of the 2012...

Robert Griffin III may have worn out his welcome in D.C., but he has a huge fan in Dallas.

Has Robert Griffin III earned another start?

Right now, the Redskins have “every intent” on starting Robert Griffin III this weekend, or at least that’s what Jay Gruden said yesterday. But should they? As I wrote last week, I think the Redskins need to move on from RGIII. And before the start of Washington’s game against San Francisco, it seemed like they were willing to do that. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network...

Tweet of the Game: Did Robert Griffin III save his career?

Why does it feel like RGIII’s entire stay in Washington is at stake in this drive? — J.A. Adande (@jadande) November 23, 2014 It feels weird to say that Robert Griffin III’s career in Washington could have ended today, but that could have been the case. Jay Gruden said before the game that he was willing to pull the trigger and replace RGIII with Colt McCoy if he needed to...

Report: Redskins could bench Robert Griffin III

If you have paid attention to the entire Robert Griffin III drama in D.C. this past week, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Washington Redskins are fully prepared to bench the struggling signal caller should he struggle early against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. According to ESPN insider Chris Mortensen, RGIII could very well be yanked in favor of Colt McCoy should...

Steve Young: Coaches say RG3 doesn’t work hard enough

Robert Griffin III has not played at a high level this season. Part of the reason for that is he suffered a serious ankle injury and is still working his way back to 100%, but has a lack of preparation contributed to RG3’s poor performance in three-plus games this year? During an appearance on the...Read More

Will Washington part ways with RG3?

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has been one of Rober Griffin III’s biggest supporters since the team traded away their future for the former Heisman Tropy Award winner prior to the 2012 NFL draft.
