Talk about the Washington Redskins here. Do you bleed burgundy and gold?

Agree that he just needs to say less rather than more at some of these press conferences....maybe have fewer press conferences to begin with.

Winning will resolve a lot of these petty issues as well.

And...I am hearing of a potential rift within the locker room, specifically between either RGIII and Kyle, or Kyle and Mike....or all 3. Any meat on this bone, or just fiction/fantasy?


what I have heard is that there are some that are 'reporting' a rift with the Shanahans and RG3 and that this is far from the truth

winning or playing well will cure all ills and quiet the liars

Personally, I think this is just another revelation of the growing rift between Griffin and Shanahan that the MM refuses to report on. Cancer in the locker room!


Clearly. He reminds of Terrell Owens.


I said that in a thread once in here and got dragged through the coals for it.

Yes, but you were being serious.

First, I would be disappointed in Griffin if he wasn't trying to draw a flag. Why not try to get that extra 15 yards, except for the most obvious disadvantage of trying to draw a late hit flag! Of course the most obvious reason is is you are getting a late hit flag that means you're getting hit! I thought the whole idea of going out of bounds was to avoid getting hit.

Not a good move. Now that he has alerted officials via his media announcement, expect defenses to hit him WITHOUT a flag everytime he does his "studder step" out of bounds.

He basically just gave up the benefit of the doubt. Honestly, he needs to go to a Peyton Manning press conference, sit in the front row, and take notes. Just another learning experience for the 23 year old


what a bunch of croc ... I totally disagree - then again .... :twisted:


Robert Griffin III is just a kid trying to help his team ... IMO way too much is made of EVERYTHING he says and does

I'm enjoying watching him play QB and being a leader of this team



btw - I also love the way he points to heaven .... now there's something for everybody to get really pissed off about :twisted:

just another mean jab?

I wonder what team you really are a fan of?
you picked the Bears to win and no real fan would pick against their own team :twisted:

My god people can nitpick any damn thing. Not a shot at you, just a feather breaking a camel's back kind of thing.

So what?

Stutter stepping out of bounds will still draw the flag from refs if he's hit OUT OF BOUNDS. As a matter of fact, that's the one flag I'm not worried about the skins getting. Every quarterback, happy feet manning, sheli (If either of them could actually make it to the sidelines), dog killer vick, russel wilson, etc. all will get that flag, 9 time out of 10. Regardless of what they say to a reporter, the ref's gonna protect the QB. Especially given the truth in the last paragraph of the article. Defenders are dumb and love to hit QBs, out of bounds be damned.

I can't wait till we start winning again so that nothing crap like this can just float on by without getting panties twisted.


It's amazing aint it how all this comes about ...it all just makes me
laugh ..People get wedgies and get bent out of shape over very little
that they can't control. its just a matter of time for this team and we know it and so do the rest...
amen bro...
Thanks for 10 years .
