London Fletcher went in hard on the Redskins organization Monday, expounding on earlier thoughts over the weekend about a culture he says isn’t “conducive to winning for a sustained period of time, from top to bottom.”
Redskins cornerback David Amerson was suspended for Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers for violating an unspecified team rule.
Carlos Hyde ran for a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown with 2:59 remaining, and the San Francisco 49ers barely squeaked by the lowly Washington Redskins with a 17-13 win Sunday that kept them in the thick of the playoff chase.
John Feinstein says the Redskins’ ongoing off-the-field saga has left the organization resembling the Kardashian family: “It’s a soap opera reality show at this point. There’s just nothing good going on.”
Charley Casserly believes the Redskins “are on a path of destruction,” and believes in his gut Jay Gruden wants to start Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy over Robert Griffin III.
In 2013, Jay Gruden called out his quarterback Andy Dalton using strikingly similar language to what he said about Robert Griffin III on Monday.
Jay Gruden hadn’t heard Robert Griffin III’s “we’re focused on San Francisco” press conference Wednesday, he says, although, while addressing team needs, he uttered an increasingly more common refrain.
Monday, Jay Gruden said he needed to “put a stop” to players allowing their words to get twisted by Media. Wednesday, RGIII seemed to heed that advice.
Rick Snider: It’s time to let the fantasy go – Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III isn’t becoming the franchise player once expected.
Long before flames were being fanned at Redskins Park Monday, Roy Helu was giving a free lesson in postgame humility after a loss.
