Toronto Mayor Rob Ford agrees with the Redskins’ decision to sit RGIII for the rest of the season, but certainly isn’t taking the Redskins over Atlanta this week.
If he had it to do over again, Mike Shanahan would have pulled Robert Griffin III at halftime of the Redskins wild-card loss to the Seattle Seahawks last January.
Mike Shanahan doesn’t stand alone in thinking it’s reasonable to err on the side of caution with Robert Griffin III, and consider shutting him down for the rest of the season. Standing by him is former Redskin’s corner Shawn Springs.
Mike Shanahan says a decision has not been made regarding Robert Griffin III’s status for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
Robert Griffin III was pulled in favor of Kirk Cousins in a game that got so completely out of hand that Redskins fans began throwing snowballs at the visiting Kansas City Chiefs.
The Redskins were a team with nothing to play for, and they looked like it. Shanahan eventually pulled the plug on Griffin, inserting backup Kirk Cousins for the final quarter.
Robert Griffin III thinks the world of Derrick Johnson. And he has for a very long time.
Ravens’ defensive end Chris Canty said RGIII is like a sitting duck who can’t move the way he needs to, and the best option for the Redskins is to shut him down for the season.
Including a pair of Super Bowls apiece, Mike Shanahan and Tom Coughlin have won a combined 345 games as head coaches in the NFL.
Robert Griffin III says anybody criticizing his father for being in the Washington Redskins locker room “needs to back up.”
