It appears dissension has hit the Washington Redskins locker room as veteran wide receiver SANTANA MOSS has taken exception to quarterback ROBERT GRIFFIN III’s comments of unaccountability in regards to the game-ending interception in Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Eagles. Moss appeared on D.C.’s 106.7 The Fan radio show and addressed RG3′s comments. [Click here to listen]
“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. I didn’t do enough to help us win. And that’s what I would do.”
—-Redskins WR Santana Moss on Griffin being accountable for his own mistakes
For the record, Griffin III threw an ill-advised pass in the end zone (off his back foot) that was intercepted then blamed his receivers for not getting open, also claiming the Eagles knew what offense the Redskins were in.
Moss is absolutely right. Griffin’s leadership skills definitely come into question with his lack of accountability on that last play. As the quarterback and the guy with the ball in his hands a great deal of the time, he has to own some responsibility. Win or lose. Griffin seemed to pass the blame elsewhere.
You know, in the aftermath of RG3′s successful first season in Washington, the 23-year old has seemed to me to be too full of himself. Perhaps thinking he had this whole NFL thing figured out. I always say you find out who’s really a leader in your locker room in times of adversity than in times of convenience.
I believe we’re finding out all we need to know about Robert Griffin III.
