Most awoke on Monday morning hoping to see breaking news on their Twitter feeds. But there was no such news as Shanahan made it through the night, had a meeting with Daniel Snyder in the morning, and now appears to be on the same page as the owner.
This was the worst effort in Mike Shanahan’s tenure with the Redskins, and if this was grade school the whole organization would receive a red “F.”
The media circus surrounding the benching of Robert Griffin would be astronomical. But there is always a media circus waltzing around Redskins Park, so what would change?
The naysayers who claim that Griffin has regressed as a pocket passer may want to rethink that notion, as Griffin’s strides were evident against the Giants. Robert Griffin also added 88 yards rushing on only 12 carries and was certainly the best player on the field for Washington.
Robert Griffin III finds himself battered and beaten both on-and-off of the field. Defensive linemen have assaulted his body, while fans and media have assassinated his character.
On a miserable Tuesday for Redskins nation, this is how the DC football team grades out after being handled by San Francisco on Monday night.
The majority of those living in Maryland, DC, and Virginia would think it’s a farce if I told them that right now, Robert Griffin has the same exact quarterback rating as Tom Brady.
The Washington Redskins offense has been wildly inconsistent; they go from horrendous, to dynamic, to average, and back to horrendous all in a four-week span.
For one moment, let’s forget about the Minnesota game, let’s forget about Mike Shanahan’s future with the organization, and let’s forget about the play of the special teams. If we look at reality, the standings have Washington in striking distance of the first place Cowboys who are ready to implode at any given moment.
Robert Griffin III was sacked four times and was harassed or should we say bullied all night long.
