Robert Griffin III may have thrown his teammates under the bus after the Washington Redskins loss to the lowly Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 27-7. However, should RG3 look in the mirror when he is throwing blame around?
Griffin said in a news conference after the game, “It doesn’t take one guy, and that’s proven. If you want to look at the good teams in this league and the great quarterbacks, the Peytons and the Aaron Rodgers, those guys don’t play well if their guys don’t play well. They don’t.” While that may be true, RG3 is not Aaron Rodgers or Peyton Manning. Those quarterbacks have shown the ability to make the players around them better, while Griffin has not shown that ability yet. In the loss, Griffin threw two interceptions, overthrew star wide receiver Desean Jackson two times, and had six sacks against him.
On more then one occasion, he has thrown teammates under the bus while deflecting any criticism thrown his way. My friend Vijay Eswaran has been hard on Griffin this year as he no longer has any excuse for his actions. If he wants to bring up Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers and become a best seller like them on Amazon, then he needs to improve his own game first, or else he will be getting the blame while being released.
