WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Redskins fans should be familiar with RGIII’s statement tweeted by Trey Wingo back in March, in which the quarterback identified that “all parties involved” in his injury “know their responsibilities,” without actually identifying the parties involved.

For a refresher, he said,”I know where my responsibility is within the dilemma that led to me having surgery to repair my knee, and all parties involved know their responsibilities as well.”

It was ominous, as almost everyone reading the tweet knew immediately he was referring to head coach Mike Shanahan, who came under fire for leaving a hobbled Griffin in the Redskins’ playoff game against the Seahawks.

According to Jason Reid of the Washington Post, people within the organization were caught off guard by this particular RGIII statement.

“The tweet to Trey Wingo, I mean I talked to people in the organization; that clearly was something that was surprising,” Reid told Lavar and Dukes on 106.7 The Fan Thursday.

Reid, who covered the Redskins before being promoted to columnist, believes these two involved parties – Mike Shanahan and RGIII – haven’t been on the same page.

“The situation has to be straightened out,” Reid said. “Let’s put it that way.”

“They don’t have to love each other, but they have to be on the same page. And I don’t think it’s a big stretch by what we’ve seen so far publicly, to say that there are clearly questions as to whether or not they’re on the same page.”

Just food for thought, for anyone wondering if everything was okay between the two.
