Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III is adamant that he wasn't benched, but shut down at the end of the 2013 season by former head coach Mike Shanahan. "The way I refer to it, and really what happened, is coach brought me in his office and said he was shutting me down for the rest of the year," Griffin said. "So a lot of people say I was benched, but I was really shut down."
