Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III's father originally rebuffed head coach Mike Shanahan's attempts to reach out after Griffin's knee injury in January. Robert Griffin Jr. appreciated the gesture but felt Shanahan should worry more about coaching than building a stronger bond with Griffin III. Griffin Jr. took issue with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's play-calling, which they felt put Griffin III at further risk after his initial injury.

San Francisco 49ers LB Ahmad Brooks does not think Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III should be playing in games right now due to his knee injury from last season.

He shouldn't be playing."

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III reportedly called the wrong protection play on the final play of the team's Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in which he threw an interception. Griffin said in post-game comments that "no one got open" during the play.
Fantasy Tip: RG3's leadership has come into question the last couple of weeks as he's dodged issues with taking responsibility for his mistakes on the field. Griffin has plenty of maturing to do. The good thing is that his knee appears to be fully healthy, which will keep his owners smiling.

Washington Redskins WR Santana Moss took exception to comments made by QB Robert Griffin III about the final play of the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, and his failure to take responsibility. "As a leader, you understand that if you're involved in the situation, whether you're the receiver, the quarterback, the guys making the tackle, whoever. Regardless of the outcome, good or bad, you have to at some point, stand up and say me or I," Moss said in a radio interview Tuesday, Nov. 19.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said opposing teams are trying to stop the pass first against them this year, with more seven-man boxes to help with downfield coverage. QB Robert Griffin III complained after their Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that it seemed as though they always knew what was coming in the passing game. "Our first year everyone played us with eight-man fronts, sometimes almost nine-man fronts," Shanahan said. "When you do that you have guys wide open like we did last year. That's one reason the play-action was so good. This year (teams are saying), 'We're playing you more passing and you have to earn the right in that run game.'"

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan disagreed with QB Robert Griffin III's comments that indicated the Philadelphia Eagles knew the Redskins' plays in Week 11. "Our first year everyone played us with eight-man fronts, sometimes almost nine-man fronts," Shanahan said. "When you do that you have guys wide open like we did last year. That's one reason the play-action was so good. This year (teams are saying), 'We're playing you more passing and you have to earn the right in that run game.' Which we've been able to do. You're not always going to get that deep ball so you have to dump it off and be patient. That's part of the NFL. No matter what quarterback you're going against, no matter what system you go against, you have to relate or adjust your game plan accordingly. That's one of the reasons we ran the ball so much against a team that was very good at stopping the run."

The Washington Redskins had their passing game shut down by the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11. The 'Skins ran the ball 28 times to just seven passes in the first half of the game. "Obviously, we ran the ball well, but in the passing game a lot of times, they were tit for tat. They were there, where they needed to be and a lot of times they were taking the routes that needed to be run and that's disheartening, but we have to come up with something for that," QB Robert Griffin III said.

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III realizes he's been hit very often the last several weeks, and he wants to try to avoid unnecessary contact moving forward. "We don't want that to happen," Griffin said. "I know I don't want that to happen, the coaches don't want that to happen, the players around me don't want that to happen and we just have got to do a better job of making sure that doesn't happen." He said he has to "take it upon myself to get down earlier."
Fantasy Tip: Griffin's knee has looked healthier as the season has progressed, which is one of the reasons he's taking more hits as he feels more comfortable scrambling from the pocket. He's a midrange QB1 that can make more things happen now that he's using his legs more often.
