Need to Know: Redskins starting QB job is Griffin’s to lose

Mar 26, 2015, 4:56 AM EDT


Here is what you need to know on this Thursday, March 26, 35 days before the Washington Redskins go on the clock at the NFL draft.

Question of the day

A few days a week I’ll give an in-depth answer to a question submitted by a fan on my Twitter feed, via the Real Redskins Facebook page, or in the comments section here. On Twitter address the questions to me at @Rich_TandlerCSN with the #NTK hashtag. There will be a comment thread set up on the Facebook page and if you’re asking your question here, put “for NTK” at the start of the comment.

I’m not answering a specific question today. Instead, I’m combining about half a dozen or so questions on the subject of the status of Robert Griffin III as the Redskins’ starting quarterback.

In a couple of sessions with reporters during the owners meetings in Arizona, Jay Gruden did supply some clarity to the situation, at least to the extent that it can be clarified in late March.

“He’s got the starting job right now,” Gruden said of Griffin Monday. “Hopefully he takes it and runs with it.” He reiterated that line of thinking on Wednesday.

So what does that mean? It seems like it boils down to the starting quarterback job is Griffin’s to lose.

He will get the first-team reps in OTAs and when training camp starts, according to Gruden. But it is not clear that he will get them when the regular season starts. That’s when him having the job “right now” comes into play as well has his need to “run with it”.

Gruden did not give any specifics about what the meant by “run with it”. But it’s safe to conclude that if he frequently is hesitant on pulling the trigger on passes during training camp like he was in 2014 or if he has a preseason game like he had in Baltimore last year he would be in jeopardy of being replaced by either Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy.

This is different from what the situation has been for the three years that Griffin has been in the league. Going into each of those three seasons there was no question that Griffin would be behind center in Week 1, health permitting (or even when his health made it not such a good idea).

As Griffin takes the first-team snaps, McCoy and Cousins will share the others, Gruden said on Wednesday. Although it won’t be a quarterback competition in the traditional sense, with two QB’s splitting the first-team reps and the coach declaring a winner at some point, there still will be very much a competitive situation. If Griffin plays his way out of the job, whoever is deemed to be ahead between Cousins and McCoy will move into the starting quarterback job.

The ideal situation for the team would be for Griffin to get a firm hold on the job and start to get back to the level of effectiveness that he had when he earned rookie of the year honors in 2012. If not, and if Cousins and McCoy don’t turn out to be the answer, the Redskins could be starting from scratch at the quarterback position in 2016. And that is not where any team wants to be in a league where quality quarterbacks are scarce wants to be.


—It’s been 88 days since the Redskins played a game. It will be about 171 days until they play another one.

Days until: Redskins offseason workouts start 25; 2015 NFL Draft 35; Redskins training camp starts 126

    Sounds like 3 better man up, take the job he was drafted to do and leave no doubt that it is his. If not he should just get out of DC. No more twitter, no more stuff about his feelings, embrace the competition, play inspired ball and run away with the job. Looks like it is now or never in DC.

    • troylok - Mar 26, 2015 at 7:58 AM

      I’m with you. The pressure is on. Has anyone but me noticed that some of the receivers have said RG3 was going to hold his own passing camp? Weeks have gone by and when follow-up questions have been asked of the receivers, it doesn’t sound like RG3 has schedule it. Maybe I am reading way too much into that, but it sounds like a thing he said for the media but really doesn’t want to do. This is part of the enigma of RG3: he puts on the front, but when it comes time to deliver he doesn’t seem to be motivated.

      • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 1:58 PM

        So you’re giving up on it and dropping it in Griffin’s lap already?! Based on what evidence?

        Only Niles Paul ever said they were planning a get together of “skill players” to get some work in together. Never heard ANYBODY report that GRIFFIN said it (did YOU?).

        Paul also never mentioned who, where, or when if it was happening. Did you hear anything from any other players? How far along is the planning, if there has been any? Who knows?

        So there’s should be little surprise that nothing further at this point in time that has been reported. Doesn’t mean it wont happen.

        (And if it does, I wonder if yer gonna come back and say “my bad!” LOL!)

    • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 4:02 PM

      You REALLY think twitter and Facebook are any part of Griffins problem, sidepull?

      IIRC, people LOVED when he reached out to fans during his Heisman Trophy and Rookie of the Year seasons!! “The new kind of player–in touch with the fans!”, “Ask him a question…you might get an answer!” It seemed great! (at least to anybody who wasn’t still using a rotary-dial phone! LOL)

      But when things go sideways people always start looking for reasons…grasping at straws — and social media seemed like an apt target for the “Social Media QB”.

      But I can’t help but think that that’s too facile of a target. You know, of course, that a a vast majority of all athletes use social media extensively — as do business leaders…religious leaders (i.e., Pope Francis)…politicians (they even announce their presidential candidacies on Twitter!) AND they still seem get their jobs done okay, too!

      Listen…a LOT of things have gone wrong with Griffin’s play, but I’d bet dollars to donuts that no part of that is due to his use of social media.

      (OR that he doesn’t “embrace the competition”, or does not attempt to “play inspired ball” for that matter! Those claims deserve a whole separate reply, imho. But I’ll spare ya!)

      • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 4:06 PM


        Shoulda said, “Spare ya that AGONY” that is. Haha

      • murphsman - Mar 27, 2015 at 9:42 AM

        The last time he was on Facebook was to announce he was gonna be a daddy, and that was the middle of February, so people can’t blame his problems on too much time on social media this off-season if he struggles later in the year. They’ll have to think of something else

  2. abanig - Mar 26, 2015 at 7:39 AM

    It’s always been RG3’s job to lose since he was drafted. I don’t really like that Colt McCoy was brought back though. Imo, that’s a shot at kirk cousins. I would have rather them drafted a late round QB to groom as their future back up behind whomever is the future staring qb.

    The fact that Kirk has to split reps with Colt as Robert’s back up this spring and summer, doesn’t sit well with me. Kirk and Robert should be in a truly open competition this offseason and Colt shouldn’t have been signed in my eyes.

    • sidepull - Mar 26, 2015 at 7:55 AM

      Agreed. There are 6 years of tape on McCoy. He is what he is, a backup. He shouldn’t even be getting any of 3’s reps or Cousins reps. It makes it sound like a QB carousel again and that’s not productive. At least it did not look productive last year. More of a debacle than anything.

    • troylok - Mar 26, 2015 at 8:01 AM

      I think signing Colt makes sense if the team plans to trade a QB.

      • deepball1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:57 AM

        You are right about that. And THAT is the thing that we don’t know about. Moves are made that are dependent upon future plans and fans have no idea about those plans. All fans know is what they see until somebody enlightens them. If a QB goes down or if somebody gets desperate…Cousins may be traded…but either way….Both Griffin and Cousins could be gone 12 months from now so Colt could just be a perpetual year to year backup like Rex was….and I suspect that is what is going on here.

    • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 8:39 AM

      if robert and kirk hadnt left the door open, colt wouldnt be back. Anyone who would be comfortable with just rg and kirk is nuts

    • ET - Mar 26, 2015 at 12:05 PM

      Agree, to the extent that I don’t believe Colt should be getting reps with the same frequency and Robert or Kirk. If he’s truly the backup, he shouldn’t get those reps. We’ll see what actually happens in camp, however. A coach’s musings in March don’t mean anything in August.

    • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:09 PM

      I dunno…Colt definitely seems to be Jays boy, and he seems to be real simpatico with Jay. (Colt talked repeatedly how comfortable he was in Jay’s system last season.)

      Would NOT be surprised if he’s the kind of guy that Jay wants to keep around; a good 3rd (or 2nd!) stringer, who excepts that role (tho, he didn’t seem to have many OTHER options), can help with the younger players (a kind of “extension” of Jay on the field & in the locker room, maybe?), and if things go sideways with the other two, Jay probably feels comfortable if McCoy has step in.

      Like a nice, low-premium insurance policy!

  3. Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 8:11 AM

    Everyone already knows it’s rg3’s job to lose. I just don’t see why he(gruden) wont work with him? Why name him your starter and then backtrack and say oh it’s his to lose. He should’ve said that when griffin was announced the starter. All this does is create unneeded drama for us. The redskins gave up to much to just throw in the towel. Let griffin start every game and see what we have. Drafting a qb in the first round again is the dumbest move I think, because If he wasn’t a pocket passer than mariotta isn’t the answer and a waste of a pick. The redskins need to either listen for trade offers or draft a WR, Lb, or Shelton.

    • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 9:09 AM

      what makes you think he hasnt worked with him

      • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 9:26 AM

        If the coach was really trying to work with griffin, he(the coach) could’ve used more plays to ease griffin into the starting job. Not ok preseason is done, you know everything lets go. On top of that we can all tell gruden is trying to get rid of griffin. Shannahan worked with griffin in his first year and look at where that got us, I believe we won the division. Weather or not mike wanted griffin, he worked with him. Heck he won’t even work with Kirk but that’s a story for another day. Everyone has there opinion and I think that gruden isn’t really trying to work with griffin, he wants to find his own qb. And gruden has a right to but don’t come in here and say rg is the starter and then say well if he plays bad etc… He needs to stick with one qb. You can’t see if a qb is going to be good after 3 games and then bench him. But what gruden need to do and continue to do is build a strong team around griffin and that’s what the gm is doing! He was a great pick up

        • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 9:44 AM

          i dont see gruden trying to get rid of anyone. I see him desperately wanting one of his quarterbacks to show signs of improvement. Im curious if you have some inside information that makes you so sure.

        • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:54 AM

          @warpath, it’s my opinion.

        • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:24 PM

          I agree with warpath on this one…even tho some pundits have speculated that jay totally rejected Griffin last season well that was LAST season — whether it was accurate or not — all indications are that Gruden has either changed his mind, or had it changed for him —- as it seems to be the plan that a real attempt is made to improve Griffin (both QBs, I would imagine).

          So Jay is not being allowed to dismiss Griffin out of hand (IF he ever even attempted to!), got a REAL QB coach, and is going to give Griffin a chance to prove himself.

          But it seems like that job has “term limits” that need to be acknowledged by all involved, right?

        • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:28 PM

          If he was trying to get the best out of his qb’s than he should’ve did it with the starter and stuck with him

    • dcfaninecuador - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:21 AM

      Weeelllll….maybe that’s why they hired a QB coach. It sure wasn’t to have somebody that “could work” with cousins. It’s not Bobs fault they traded away the immediate future for him. It’s not his fault he won the Heisman. It’s not his fault he shredded his knee and was allowed to keep playing on it (regardless of what Shanahan said…he was the the head coach and had the final say). So, all that being said, rhe Q B position should be Bobs to win or lose. Yes, the position is somewhat unsettled, but anybody who thinks MCCoy or cousins is the answer is delusional. If Bob doesn’t take control and run away with the job, then all bets are off and it will be time to start over, but he should be given the chance

      • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:29 AM

        thats why we will draft a quarterback this year. I hope i am wrong but I believe the quarterback we draft this year will be the starter next year

        • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:30 PM

          Even if he’s a 6th rounder and doesn’t make it out of camp? Or do you see that as very unlikely?

          I imagine you have a name or two of who would fit your bill, wapath…and where you think the Skins should take him. I’d be interested to know that.

        • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:16 PM

          actually i think scot allready has a few potential qbs in mind that could be in any round. We have 3 qbs now that none of them are under contract past this season. so i think he will see what he can get in the draft, see how the current qbs got through otas and camp and decide weather or not to extend any of their contracts. I dont follow enough college football to know who would be a good nfl candidate. Im a buckeyes fan, so i dont know much about good quarteback play

  4. skinsgame - Mar 26, 2015 at 9:20 AM

    I would be happy if Griffin showed up for the competition and quietly put everyone, including me, in their place. Show up sharply minded, decisive, dedicated and motivated. History tells me he will do no such thing and by the 3rd preseason game, there will be a QB controversy.
    I remember he once wore a t-shirt that said, “No Pressure, No Diamonds”. Put up or shut up time, Bob.

  5. gurnblanstonreturns - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:29 AM

    Griffin has never run a disciplined, pro-style offense at any level – peewee, high school, college or 2012. When placed in such a system, Griffin has provided no evidence that he can do so. From mechanics to decision-making to leadership and maturity, Griffin is not prepared to be a starting QB in the NFL. The San Francisco and Tampa Bay games last year featured the worst quarterback play I have ever seen (I have seen plenty as bad, but none worse.) Looking at the best interests of the team long-term, even if Griffin defies his history and plays well within the system, he has not shown the ability to stay healthy. The reality is that he will be given every chance to play this year. And reality will soon reveal that he can’t play.

    • bowlregard - Mar 26, 2015 at 5:38 PM

      I would also like to see him succeed. I want to see him healthy and I want to see him run. Within the confines of the system, of course.

  6. deepball1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:47 AM

    Here is what Gruden said: “Griffin is our starter”………….”We will consider drafting Mariota if we feel we need to hit the RESET button.”….”I thought by naming Robert the starter it would boost his confidence”.

    Here is what Scott M said: “the starting QB job has to be earned. Prove it to me”

    RESET means start over….CHANGE…..get rid of the old….BUT “Griffin is our starter”. How is talk about RESET boosting Griffins confidence. Gruden continues to send out mixed signals to a team that played last year as though they were confused and never on the same page.

    There is no team winning that has a Confusion Problem about who is in charge….who is the QB…what is the team identity……etc etc so THIS is the Redskins problem. THEY HAVE NO DIRECTION….THEY ARE SCATTERED….ALL OVER THE PLACE WITH THEIR PHILOSOPHY OF OFFENSE AND TEAM LEADERSHIP.

    If they ever want to win..they need to forget about QB competitions….name a starter. The coach needs to get behind him….and the coach…whoever it will be in the future…needs to identify what the team does. Either its a finesse passing team…or a hard gritty running team…or a conservative offense with a solid defense…but the Skins have no identity and nothing to hang their hat on and until that happens they will lose and finish last in the NFC East for a 7th time in 8 years.

    Whether you hate Griffin or Love him…that is not the issue. The issue is that this team remains in chaos INTERNALLY.

    • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:57 AM

      I agree

      • murphsman - Mar 27, 2015 at 9:45 AM

        Have been ever since Danny boy bought the team. Doubt if JKC woulda allowed this kind of circus to exist. Do Robert Kraft or John Schneider allow it? No

    • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:05 PM

      Does seem like mixed messages, doesn’t it, deepball!

      I’m gonna guess that they are trying to juggle a few balls tho…which may make them a bit contradictory .

      The trickiest ball, imho, is trying to get the teams that covet Mariota to think the the Skins might actually take him with the fifth pick! That forces them to say things like “reset” and “not etched in stone”… “we are not overjoyed with the QB situation”, etc.etc.

      They also have to appease those who want Griffin GONE, particularly the noisy ones on Talk Radio. Maaannn…those guys could talk up just about any wild, unfounded rumor into a major crisis whenever they put their minds into it, no?! (Especially for the gullible, right? LOL)

      Plus, I wouldn’t be surprised if certain things need to be implied that bolster Cousins’ confidence, by convincing him he actually has an chance to win the job this year if he outshines RG — like many feel he did last camp.

      And finally some say Griffin’s confidence MAY need to be boosted a bit with encouraging words…but perhaps not SO much that he would get complacent. (Kinda doubt that one tho. Personally, I’ve never seen evidence that RG3 lacks for confidence — or needs to be “threatened” in order to get motivated. Others might disagree tho. Be my guest!))

      All these situations may require different responses, some which don’t dovetail with some others. Kinda like politics! Hey, it is DC isn’t it…sometimes called the most dysfunctional city in America? Why should their football team be any different?! LOL

  7. warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 10:57 AM

    Good teams follow the head coaches plan and execute it. bad teams question everything and go in different directions. sound familiar.

    • deepball1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 11:02 AM

      the problem is that there is no DIRECTION. Ya can’t change quarterbacks THREE times in a season and then change the coaching staff the next season and then say there will be a QB competition but then name a starter and then come back and say you may hit the reset button……there IS no plan. There is no head coaches plan unless confusion and INDECISION is a plan. Gruden appears lost.

      • bowlregard - Mar 26, 2015 at 5:39 PM

        When a QB get injured you can’t leave him in there.

    • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 11:11 AM

      It doesn’t help when the coach don’t know where he wants to go either. He can say he wants this but his actions aren’t agreeing with his words. If he doesn’t want rg3 to start than he should name someone else or stand but what he said. Let Robert go in as the starter and play. Not oh well if he plays bad then im going a different route… When we had losing seasons under zorn or Gibbs did they once say I’m thinking about benching him or drafting a qb? Did those coaches ever bench Campbell? Brunell got benched for Gibbs because he was playing badly and hurt. But gruden sees two or 3 bad games and says up griffin is done? Smh…

    • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 11:37 AM

      griff didnt benched, i seem to remember him turning his ankle the wrong way

      • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 1:20 PM

        He did get benched after the bucs game I believe. Then McCoy came in did nothing, got hurt and then griffin came back in.. Come on now warpath..

        • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 1:54 PM

          first time was injury to his ankle, second time was just cause he was aweful

        • Stephfan - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:24 PM

          Regardless warpath my point was to not give up on a qb because of a couple bad games and you proved it, thanks

        • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:05 PM

          hopefully he learns the offense and plays great this season.

        • bowlregard - Mar 26, 2015 at 5:41 PM

          He was also not 100% physically when he came back.

  8. wvredskins - Mar 26, 2015 at 11:52 AM

    Well I’m guessing I’m delusional in thinking that Kirk could potentially the answer. I hope rg comes into camp and returns to form, I really do BUT IMO I don’t think he will. He had lost a step or 2, So the read option is not as effective any more. Time will only tell and I’m not hating on rg. I am a fan of him and wish him the best but unless he becomes a really good pocket passer his time in the league his slowly coming(Vince young)/ now to Kirk. I believe he had the highest ceiling on the team. He was the most effective and in moving the ball last year and was the most effective in touchdown passes. If he could jus work on his int I really could see him taking the job and running with it. BUT I’m just a fan and this is my opinion. #cantwaittilfballseason

    • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 12:22 PM

      I am a fan of whoever our qb is thats playing. I dont really care who it is as long as they execute the offense correctly. I think Kirk could do it, but the last game he played he was pressing and looked scared. Hard to recover from that

      • wvredskins - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:34 PM

        Yeah I agree in them two games he lost his confidence. He was telegraphing his throws. Not quite sure what happen. But when he was on his A game he really looked impressive. I think he would have been better off if Gruden would have stuck with him and who knows where the state of the team would be now. Andy Dalton last year had a game where he absolutely looked horrible. I forget who the bengals were playing but he bounced back pretty good. Who ever Gruden decides on being the QB I believe he should stick with them through the good and the bad. If there is no good and only bad then pull the QB. IMO there is something about Kirk that I would like to see more of I dunno..

        • warpath1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:45 PM

          yeah, but like everyone says, it takes more than just the quarterback. The rest of the team needs to play up to help out whoever our qb ends up being

  9. ET - Mar 26, 2015 at 12:20 PM

    Assuming Mariota is not the #5 pick, who do you all think might be a good developmental QB fot the Skins in this year’s draft? I’ve heard the UCLA and Baylor QBs mentioned a few times in this regard, but curious who might be a good fit for the Skins in 2016 and beyond.

    • sidepull - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:07 PM

      Preferably 3 or Kirk steps up and just takes the job. I too am delusional in thinking it is possible that 5 years from now when we look back on all this Kirk may still be in the NFL playing and 3 could be gone the way of an injury prone guy who had potential but could not shake the injury bug or he just is a bust. Kirk plays like the a qb who was taken in the round he was drafted. If he plays up, well that’s a bonus. Problem for 3 is he does not play too expectations of his #2 overall selection. Not even close to that. Its not fair to compare them. Nobody is delusional when you look at it in that perspective.

      • ET - Mar 26, 2015 at 2:25 PM

        That perspective makes a certain amount of sense. Kirk does play like a decent mid-round pick with some flaws, while at #2, the expectations are (rightfully) much higher.

        Ultimately, though, one of them needs to step up and take the reins. Four years in NFL time might as well be an era. The Era of the 2012 QBs may soon be over.

  10. kenlinkins - Mar 26, 2015 at 1:40 PM

    Rich, Isn’t a young QB who is misreads a defense sometimes (or get fooled) and throws a few INT’s ahead of a young QB who doesn’t get his steps correct, will not pull the trigger on time and runs to soon? In the development of a young QB the last step is knowing when the defense has the play beat and not to force something that could lose the game. If the above is correct, then Cousins is ahead of RG3 in development, so why is he still in coach’s dog house? I have read that Cousins reaction to the INT’s is the concern but haven’t seem any details of the reaction. Any insight into what the coaching staff is looking for from Cousins?

    • brucefan1 - Mar 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM

      Good question ken, so I’m gonna invite myself to jump in while you’re waiting for Rich to answer.

      Both sacks AND interceptions seem to be problems most young QBs go through. (Some QBs unfortunately have BOTH problems — Geno Smith comes to mind). In my opinion these are problems that can be overcome IF the player has great physical skills, works hard enough, is coached well, AND has the intelligence it takes to learn the lessons that lead to success in these areas, internalize them, and then perform them instinctively. By some QBs…but definitely not ALL. This is often what separates the established starter from the journeyman, no?

      But as far as which problem is more “acceptable” (or less devastating?), in my experience watching games since the sixties, I have never heard an announcer say after an interception, Ohhhh…too bad — the QB just threw an interception!! But it could have been worse…he could have taken a 12-yard SACK, which would have left them with third and long! THAT would have been more damaging than losing possession of the ball on that down!”

      And when they do, I will know that the game has made a seismic shift! LOL

  11. redskinsinrichmondva - Mar 26, 2015 at 6:28 PM

    “History tells me he will do no such thing and by the 3rd preseason game, there will be a QB controversy.”

    I hope you keep in mind that the history you’re referring to is a seven-game sample size of performance in an offense that Griffin has not played in college or the NFL. You know how useful a seven-game sample size is for predicting QB play?

    Here’s a recent quote from Scot McCloughan (per John Keim on

    “”But the system is not an easy system to walk into year one,” McCloughan said. “When I was in Green Bay with Brett Favre, Mike Holmgren ran a similar system and that first year was really tough. For the quarterback there’s so much stuff going on around them.”

    In Favre’s first two seasons in Green Bay, which also were his first two as a starter, he threw a combined 37 touchdowns and 37 interceptions. In his third season, he threw 33 touchdowns to 14 interceptions, starting a five-year run in which he threw a combined 176 touchdowns to 79 interceptions.”

    (For those who are interested in using strawmen as a rebuttal: no, I am not saying that Griffin will become a Pro-Bowl QB like Favre.)

    Some NFL people talk about how hard it is to be a good pocket QB, and how the transition to being a good pocket QB isn’t easy. It can even take multiple seasons; and even *that* doesn’t guarantee consistent production throughout a QB’s career. But in Washington, D.C.; Griffin is expected to become such a pocket QB after a huge sample size of seven games. Makes perfect sense. With this kind of logic, it’s not hard to wonder why this franchise has been a joke for two decades.

      I’ll agree with you. I’ve heard many of coaches before say it takes 2-4 years to pick up a pocket style of offense. So why not give griffin this whole year?

    Until they improve the talent on the Oline at LG, C, RG, and RT I dont think any QB will do good.The Coach can help cover up these areas of weakness by calling more Runs, Shotgun, Bootlegs, Zone Read, Read Option, Pistol Formaton Plays, and Play Action. These formations and plays will slow down the rush and buy time for the QB to look down field and let plays develop. Archives
