Is keeping RG3 the right move for the Redskins?

Sep 5, 2015, 10:37 AM EDT


It appears that the Robert Griffin III saga with the Redskins is going to go on, at least for a while longer. According to a report all of the major decision makers in the organization have concluded that the best thing to do is to keep Griffin on the roster as the No. 2 quarterback behind Kirk Cousins.

But is it really the best thing to do? There are a number of sound reasons for the Redskins to move on from Griffin sooner rather than later.

—If he gets injured in practice or during a game, the team could be on the hook to pay him over $16 million next year.

—It puts a lot of pressure on Cousins. If he makes a mistake could be looking over his shoulder at the guy who was once the savior of the franchise.

—The very presence of Griffin in the building tends to create distractions. He can say the wrong thing to the media, put up a social media post that invites intense scrutiny or do any number of things that can put the spotlight on him and take it away from the other 52 players on the team.

—Giving Griffin a chance to move on and find another team could be the best for him. A fresh start could revive his career and give him a chance at success.

But there are valid counter arguments to each of these:

—The chances of him getting an injury severe enough to have him fail a physical next March are pretty slim. Practice is non-contact for quarterbacks. He could get hurt in a game but that is a chance they are willing to take.

—If Cousins can’t handle the pressure of having a quarterback who hasn’t played well for two seasons, how is he going to go into Dallas and win? Cousins has earned his opportunity but a quarterback in his position has to expect to have a competent backup behind him. Whether it’s Griffin, Colt McCoy, or someone else, Cousins should have a backup who is a threat to take his job behind him until he earns the right to be fully trusted.

—Griffin has every incentive to be a model citizen for however long he remains with the Redskins. He will spend the season auditioning for a 2016 backup job either in Washington or, more likely, elsewhere. If he ends up being a distraction his options will be extremely limited when he is looking for a job next spring. He is probably going to be on his best behavior.

—An NFL contract perhaps is unfair but it is what it is. If it is in the best interest of the team to keep him the contract gives them the right to do so. What the player wants is secondary to what the team wants. I recall that not too long ago many thought that Cousins should be let go or traded to give him a chance to start and prosper elsewhere. Things change and now Cousins has his chance to start.

The arguments for him to stay don’t necessarily invalidate the case for him to go. This move ultimately will be judged by results. If he takes over as the starter at some point and is productive the decision to keep him will be a success. If he should get injured and become a drag on the 2016 salary cap the decision for him to stay will be a disaster.

It is most likely that the outcome will be something in the middle. We will see how it all plays out.

    RG3 will be back soon once Cousins stinks it up! Probably game 3 or 4. I hear the chants now Rg3, Rg3.
    Maybe Rob will return to 2012 form and lead the Redskins on another 7 game Win streak. Well played Rob.
    Could once again become the savior of the Redskins.

    • me4gm - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:12 AM

      great arms are hard to find. . Theisman didn’t fully develop until he returned punts. Can Robert play corner ? catch ? Joking… I like Robert and happy they haven’t given up on him. I hope he hasn’t given up on us

      • bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:28 AM

        Remember he gave the team his word?

      • goback2rfk - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:29 AM

        Rob still loves the Redskins I am sure. Hell he is probably going over to Snyders tonight to have Filet Mignon topped with truffles, demi glaze, and a wine reduction sauce.

        RG3 will be back. He has been on the bench before. We have not seen the last of Rob out on the field in a Redskins jersey. New reports are coming in that during the preseason Rob was staying late at practice working solely on his footwork.
        I do not think Snyder will ever dump him so maybe he can eat some more humble pie as back up and then come back into form.

        • brucefan1 - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:34 PM

          Let’s see where Gru sticks Griffin in the QB pecking order before we start singing Kumbaya between RG3 and Gru — where imho the crux of this disaffection lies. (And by “lies”, I mean a place or position, NOT the kind of “lies” that Jay Gruden repeatedly tells.).

          But if Snyder LOVES Griffin so much, wouldn’t Danny want to free RG from being buried alive in the hermetically sealed, injury-proof coffin that many think Gru wants to put him in?

          And if Snyder LOVES Griffin so much, wouldn’t Danny grant his boy’s request to go somewhere were he actually has a snowball’s chance?

          (And why you wanna make me hungry with all that food talk??)

        • bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:51 PM


          Surely you’re familiar with ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ If Snyder loves RG3, he loves him like any rich possessive guy in any movie has ever “loved” anything. That whole part of “if you love something, you set it free” stuff isn’t in play here and don’t go telling me that the Beast let Belle go because if you did I’d tell you that Belle went back to the Beast.

      • brucefan1 - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:17 PM

        “THEY” haven’t given up him?

        Who is THEY, me4?!

        I just saw this at the Richmond Times’ site;

        “Even Griffin’s standing on the roster is a contentious issue.

        After the news broke that Griffin would remain with the team, ESPN’s Adam Schefter wrote, “Not everyone in their building is happy about it.”

        Meanwhile, NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington reported that the decision to keep Griffin was made by general manager Scot McCloughan, who contractually has final authority over the 53-man roster.”

        Gee I wonder WHO in the building might not be happy about Griffin’s STILL hanging around the nether regions of the locker room, inflaming his backside like a bad case of hemorrhoids? (Ya got three guesses, and the first two don’t count.)

        True, one guy has the final say over the starting lineup — but another holds sway over who’s on the 53 man roster. And sure, there COULD be areas of acceptable disagreement about those decisions. But if there’s ANY chance that these two are playing a game of brinkmanship, it could easily lead to a nuclear war, no? (“Brinkmanship”? “Nuclear war”? Hey, what can I tell ya … I’m a child of the 60″s! LOL)

        FREE RG3!

        FREE RG3!!

        FREE RG3!!!

        • bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:29 PM

          Schefter needs to know that Shanahan is no longer in the building. Unless McVay is the leak, although it’s not like Gruden’s body language isn’t one major tell. The day Griffin is on another team, Gruden will have a bounce in his step similar to the win against Jacksonville last year. The ‘skins are under no obligation to free RG3. The front office has weighed the decision and have him on the team now. I expect this situation will be resolved in ten days (+ or – 2).

        • brucefan1 - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:55 PM

          Haha! Don’t shoot the messenger, ben! Shefty is just reporting what he’s learned. He’s usually cautious and rational. And he’s usually money too, no?

          What I’m just thinking is if any speculation that Scot is keeping RG around even tho Gru wants him GONE is accurate, that belies the great, trusting relationship between the GM and the HC (whom he didn’t choose??) that you’d want, no?

          And that’s not good.

          (And of course the ‘skins are under ZERO obligation to free RG3. But it seems the clown court’s jury is still out on which approach is the wisest one.)

          Obviously, I’m not taking sides tho.;^}

          FREE RG3!

          FREE RG3!!

          FREE RG3!!!

        • timwillhidetimwillhide - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:55 PM

          I’ve bin saying since the change was made that I thought this was a Gruden decision and the GM was gonna use this to evaluate Gruden. Like The GM said you don’t give up on a player with that much talent this early.

        • timwillhidetimwillhide - Sep 5, 2015 at 2:34 PM

          I don’t want to see “Free RG3” I want him on our team you don’t get rid of a guy because of 2 down years with a bad Oline

        • hk2000 - Sep 5, 2015 at 3:42 PM

          I see Shanahan is still at it!

        • hk2000 - Sep 5, 2015 at 3:44 PM

          Tlm, a bad O Line… AND A BAD COACH.

        • timwillhidetimwillhide - Sep 5, 2015 at 3:49 PM

          Yes the Coach last year could have tried to call plays that would slow the Pass Rush but my point is giving up on a player after only 2 down years due to other reasons on the team is Dumb.

    • smotion55 - Sep 5, 2015 at 8:48 PM

      There will NEVER be a return to 2012 form-someone should stop smoking the s–t and get savior just self centered maybe a drama Queen also.

    • skip36 - Sep 5, 2015 at 10:10 PM

      RGme has been stinking the place for 2 years, plus all that crap from is mouth, being the best QB on the team he hasn’t shown anything but proving only one thing that talk is cheap, & has yet too prove he can be a pocket passer so now he can see first hand what one looks like by setting on the bench an learning what we all know now to be a real pocket passing QB & is team player not a me,me,me, which will give us a winning season for a change HTTR

      • celeoinc - Sep 6, 2015 at 10:12 AM

        He was mediocre in 2013. Mediocre is much better than all three versions od last year. Gruden is a bad coach. Some fans are willing to give the benefit of doubt to Gruden who never done a thing, and not to RG3. One of the reasons the Skins suck is that the owner and fans listen too much from the media that for mostly part hates the Redskins. I’m glad that the owner is not listening this time and that we have a GM that understands football. Only a winning season will save Gruden from being fired. As a Redskins fan I hope he wins, but I’m not sold on him at all.

  2. youngking434 - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:04 AM

    Love the move..rg3 can sit and learn…he has the most upside..I’m not sold on cousins or colt

  3. bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:35 AM

    Spot on analysis, as always. This should put to bed the trade/release talk until they actually trade or release him, but of course the talk will continue as we endure the cycle of whether the Redskins are being fair to Griffin and/or Cousins. No need for the team to seem desperate to unload him.

    • brucefan1 - Sep 5, 2015 at 2:04 PM

      Unless someone associated with nthe team IS desperate to unload him…

      (Just playing devi’ls advocate here, ben … stirring up a little muck. Like Bubb Rubb’s Li’l Sis sez, “That’s it and that’s all”. LOL)

  4. bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:39 AM

    Are we back to where everyone thought we were until Gruden said Cousins was the starter for 2015?

  5. timwillhidetimwillhide - Sep 5, 2015 at 12:13 PM

    I think this is a GM move. If Gruden succeeds with Cousins starting which is what Gruden wants then RG3 will be gone next year. If he fails then We will see a new Coach hand picked by the GM . Griffin will stay and we may or may not Draft a QB depending on the Coach and the system he runs…..Art Briles?????

    • Skinsfan0260 - Sep 6, 2015 at 1:47 AM

      Who picked Gruden. Art Briles is a coach hand picked by RG3’s daddy. That just has Steve Spurrier written all over it again. Please let’s stop the insanity.

  6. dcfaninecuador - Sep 5, 2015 at 12:19 PM

    It’s OK to keep him, but not at number 2. He should be 3 and be in street clothes for each game. Watch and learn. Since his multiple injuries, Griffin has to learn a whole new skill set. He not a threat to run as he used to be and opponents can see that watching tape, so, he does have to learn how to be a pocket passer. This isn’t Gruden trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. This is Gruden realizing he has to work with what he has… A formerly gifted run and shoot QB who has been slowed by crippling injuries. All that being said, the best place for Griffin is on the sidelines, watching Kirk, and maybe McCoy, run an offense and learning what he needs to learn to be successful.

    • goback2rfk - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:55 PM

      Rob a.k.a. Master Splinter beat out Colt McCoy for the number 2 spot. Unless you are trying to say you think Rob is not as good as Colt McCoy. Rg3 is in a state of transitional flux. He will appear to be the backup but when Cousins stinks it up he will be inserted back into the lineup. I fully expect to see Rg3 start some games this year.

      • Skinsfan0260 - Sep 6, 2015 at 1:40 AM

        In this preseason yes RG3 has played significantly worse than Colt McCoy.

    One can make a valid counterargument to this point, but one also can understand why you made it.

    “”It puts a lot of pressure on Cousins.”

    Please. This is true even if Griffin is not on the roster.

    “The very presence of Griffin in the building tends to create distractions…”

    This is a problem with the *media*, not Griffin. And this is also irrelevant; if the Redskins don’t win, there will be so-called distractions even if Griffin is not on the roster.

      • cal - Sep 6, 2015 at 9:43 AM

        Do u honestly think Gruden gave it everything to develop RG3??? I honestly do not… Do u try to transform a spread QB into a drop back passer over night… If he would’ve built the playbook more to RG3’s strengths & skill set we wouldn’t even be having this problem right now… Even while RG3 had a brace on his knee in the Shanahan’s offense he was better than he has been in 2 years of Gruden’s offense… If the guy understands spread/zone read concept that should be the bulk of your offense & u sprinkle in some dropping back as u teach him how to do that… SMFH everybody knows Gruden has no desire to develop RG3 no one has enough guts to say what’s real… He’s sabotaging RG3’s career bcuz he wishes to work with a drop back passer… This is not an opinion it’s an obvious fact… Fixing RG3 would be teach how to slide, pick
        necessary yardage on scrambles when
        nothing is available & get down/out of
        bounds… No one is open & there’s no
        opening to run try to extend the play using ur mobility get outside the pocket
        Look for a check down or get rid of the ball… This is what Russell Wilson does… That’s y I thought Darell Bevel was a no brainer for the HC position when Gruden was hired

        • nativetexan2012 - Sep 7, 2015 at 1:25 PM

          Does Robert bear no responsibility for his lack of progress? He’s the guy who made the decision to drop the zone-read offense and become a pocket passer before Gruden ever walked in the door. He hasn’t put in the work necessary in the film room, and that’s not just my opinion. He was given every opportunity last season, and he’s shown little improvement so far this season. Gruden understood how invested Dan Synder is in RG3. Do you honestly believe he hasn’t done all he could to help him succeed? At some point Robert has to prove he can do the job. McCoy & Cousins are more comfortable in the offense than he is. Do you think they’ve gotten more coaching than Robert? He’s not ready to play.

  8. skinsgame - Sep 5, 2015 at 12:52 PM

    No shame in learning from the bench though, at next years salary, he won’t be a back up long. I read something yesterday where Cousins said that he always felt as a backup that his job was, essentially, to be quiet and supportive. No doubt Bob can be supportive as well, however, I’d bet my last available EBT dollar that he can not stay quiet. He can stay quiet in the game plan room but the press knows he loves to hear himself and will pester him until he lets go of more of his proverbs. At that point, a decision will have to be made.

  9. goback2rfk - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:45 PM

    Maybe they can use Cousins and Rob at the same time. Maybe like a Jonny Manziel package. Rob could come in and run the wildcat or pistol for some plays. College teams swap out QB’s in this fashion.
    Maybe let Rob do some place holding on field goal situations. There are ways to utilize Rob especially if we are not concerned about him injurying himself.
    Rob once had a 57 yard punt in college. Maybe even throw him in the backfield and let him come out of the wishbone package.

    • bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 1:58 PM

      Does anything since Gruden was hired suggest that they’ve drawn up plays in the dirt?

      • goback2rfk - Sep 5, 2015 at 2:06 PM

        I have never been a coach but I did play football in high school for 4 years as the backup TE. It seems to me if I was the coach I could figure out how to get something out of Rg3. Rob is still a physical freak, not sure how much so after his blown out knees, but hell he was going to be a world-class hurdler. Rob, a track and field star at heart, is capable of doing something on the football field but no one can figure it out.
        I actually wanted to see him start this season to see if he improved from last year or still sucks. The problem with Rob is the memories of the 2012 season are still there so maybe there is always hope that he would magically return to that form one day. And that may be why he is still on the roster now. Rg3 is like a baby chicken trying break through the shell. He needs a little help but once he breaks through he will be flapping his wings.

        • bangkokben - Sep 5, 2015 at 2:13 PM

          I’d be up for anything from Griffin. With all the factors: injury, option, coaches – to name a few – I just don’t think we will see anything here. I suspect this is akin to naming Griffin the starter in February – it takes off the pressure and the media circus from moving on – until they move on. Then Brucefan can claim “lies” LOL.

        • brucefan1 - Sep 5, 2015 at 2:46 PM

          I can “CLAIM” lies, ben?! LOL

          Dude stated that he DID lie! (albeit for all the most “virtuous” reasons tho! hehe) That’s not just some “claim” on my part!

          Now, the “I’ll make RG3 into a top QB” pledge…that’s just something that I only HEARD that Gru said — so maybe I shouldn’t repeat it. Cuz I dunno… maybe yalz heard different.

          (Gotta admit I have been banging pretty hard on that ” Gru’s lies” theme, tho. But when a brother puts a hammer right in your hands, ya just gotta use it!)

          FREE RG3!!!

        • skinsgame - Sep 5, 2015 at 11:56 PM

          “Free RG3”. Please do. Let some other team use their resources on him.

  10. hk2000 - Sep 5, 2015 at 3:53 PM

    Any chance Gruden gets the boot after a 4 or 5 straight losses?

    • wncskinsfan - Sep 5, 2015 at 4:30 PM

      that would be very destablizing for the team, where stability is already a severe issue. Yeah, it could happen, but I think it would be a bad time to do it.

      • celeoinc - Sep 6, 2015 at 10:28 AM

        Destabilizing what? Going 4-12 every year? Please!!!

  11. wncskinsfan - Sep 5, 2015 at 4:29 PM

    I think Scot is stacking the deck for a Griffin trade, playing the role of a smart GM. That would be best for all folks involved. Grif goes somewhere where he is wanted, he doesn’t get cut or ride the pine. I can see the Bills or the Jets cracking and making a move, I can see him going to the 49ers to push Kaep too, esp with the new regime in there, and McLovin’s relationship with that team. but any of this would require a renegotiation of his current contract. The elephant in the room is what is going on with his concussion. Nice one Rich, keep up the good work, sir.

    • Skulb - Sep 5, 2015 at 5:44 PM

      Unlike most of the other comments on this page, this makes sense to me.

  12. squawonthewarpath - Sep 5, 2015 at 7:55 PM

    I perceive this as a sign that the Redskin management has not completely written off Robert just yet. Scott M. has said that you cannot simply just give up on such young, raw talent so easily. I think the best possible thing is for Griffin to (quietly) take this season, heal completely and LEARN!!! Learn how to slide, learn the proper and basic fundamentals, learn the playbook and how a pro offense really works, and learn the meaning of the word humble and utilize it.

    • goback2rfk - Sep 6, 2015 at 12:05 AM

      If after 3 seasons he still cant slide I dont think he will ever slide. At this point I rather him take the hit than to slide cause when he does slide his knee get all bent up. He may blow another ACL trying to slide.
      If I was Rg3 I would put my head down and drive through the defender. RG3 is like what 6 3′ 220.

  13. bob - Sep 5, 2015 at 10:39 PM

    Make him undressed 3rd. String qb. That way no cap problem this year. Cut him next march . No way he plays this year. Keep him healthy so no 16 mil. Next year. People will be surprised this year. Good D. Good run backs, good receivers. Cousins does not be great. 8-8 this year. I called it. Let the games start.

    • goback2rfk - Sep 6, 2015 at 12:02 AM

      8 – 8 would be great. I think we can go 4 – 2 in the division this year. Cowboys get us once and Eagles get us once. I am thinking something like 6 – 10 maybe 7 – 9

  14. skinsgame - Sep 6, 2015 at 12:05 AM

    Roberts salary guarantee for next year virtually seals the deal that he will not playing for the team this year. They’re playing it smart and seeing if they can get a draft pick out of him from a desperate team but not a chance he ever suits up for the Maroon and Yellow again.

    • goback2rfk - Sep 6, 2015 at 12:09 AM

      Nah. He will suit up again. They are keeping him around for a reason. If they were really concerned about the injury thing and the salary guarantee than he would be cut immediately. They kept him on the team cause they are going to use him and quite possibly this year. Cousins will stink it up and we will be back in a QB controversy in a few weeks. Watch the drama unfold.

      • skinsgame - Sep 6, 2015 at 6:49 AM

        Cousins just might stink it up. But we’ve seen Griffin do that and get steadily worse at it too. McC isn’t foolish enough to risk $16 million next year on a QB thatbhas been injured so frequently and benched for poor play.

  15. Skinsfan0260 - Sep 6, 2015 at 1:29 AM

    The insiders talk as though he is a cancer to the team. Who on earth is ever diagnosed with cancer and decides that they will just keep it around. You never know it might just turn out to be an advantage.

  16. mac7163 - Sep 6, 2015 at 8:32 AM

    It would be smart to keep him . He is insurance and they would have to absorb almost 6 million in dead cap space or would count against the cap anyway. RGIII has not helped his cause in this matter but when your coach clearly favors another it is also rough for him . Also Gruden must produce 8-8 or your out .

  17. cal - Sep 6, 2015 at 9:06 AM

    RG3 being benched is the best thing that could’ve happened to his career for this second… Gruden went to the front office & expressed his desire to move on to Cousins or McCoy as the starter & permission was granted… Unannounced to Gruden he may have just brought his ticket out of D.C. as soon as Cousins under performs Gruden can kiss the game goodbye… It probably has become clear to the front office that Gruden doesn’t want to/simply can’t develop RG3 & now they’re about to just let him fall flat on his
    face… Just look at the difference in the play calling when RG3 versus when Cousins/
    McCoy was in the game… Cousins actually
    scored on a read option run… Against Detroit RG3 took shot after shot & Gruden made no adjustments to the OL or the play calling until RG3 was injured… Once Cousins entered the game the adjustments were made… He took the defenses off balance calling more runs, a few rollouts, some zone read, shotgun etc. Film don’t lie

    • mac7163 - Sep 6, 2015 at 9:24 AM

      I agree with you wholeheartedly !!! Amen !

  18. Bahaa - Sep 6, 2015 at 10:06 AM

    Selfishly It’s absolutely the right thing to go for the Redskins to keep him on the roster . Gruden is an unproven coach a coach that clearly does not want RG3 to be his quarterback . Rg3 went down in week 2 last year. Gruden was unable to win with the two quarterbacks he prefers even being shutout against the Rams . Chances are the same thing will happen again this year. He will fail with the quarterback he choose for his system and he will be fired. Once gruden is fired a new coach willing to modify his system to the talent he has would jump at the opportunity to coach a talent like RG3…… How many read option plays did rg3 run in the thanksgiving day game against Dallas maybe 1 or 2 ? Rg3 is extremely talented and until he’s up to speed in the pocket more shotgun more pistol more rollouts…… We aren’t looking to be average we want to win championships and to do that you need more than an average quarterback cousins is an average to below average quarterback that is much more comfortable in gruden a system than rg3 …. But that doesn’t make him the better quarterback

  19. Brad - Sep 6, 2015 at 10:08 AM

    It’s the way wrong move to keep him. Snyder is without a doubt the biggest moron on the planet! Well, besides some of these fans that still think it’s 2012. Nobody is going to trade anything for him. No other team is going to take on that 16 million. The coach doesn’t want RG3, the GM doesn’t want RG3, and RG3 doesn’t want to be here! To all of you that think Kirk Cousins isn’t a good QB think of it this way. Cousins was asked to carry this team on his back last year. He had started 5 games before he took over. 5. Those games were also spuratic. Yet, Gruden had him throwing 40-50 times a game. Starting to see the problem? Gruden gave up on the run far too often last year and the defense gave up too many touchdowns. A 5 game starter is going to throw alot of pics when he’s asked to throw the ball 40 times. We have to run the dn football 30-40 times a game and pray our new d line can keep us in some games. Cousins will win Games when he is not asked to do so much. Look at Romo last year. Perfect example

    He’ll bounce back! The media, the NFL so call experts needs to understand that YOU must have a good line……. No line means hell in the back field.

    I don’t necessarily blame RG3, I put 35 % on RG…. and the rest the line and the staff

    Good move to keep him and sit him. Why put him out there with a suspect O-line? Why not sit him for the first few games and let the O-line gel. If Kirk does well then keep rolling with Kirk. If Kirk turns the ball over too many times or gets hurt then you go back to Robert and give him one last chance to take the job assuming the O-line can protect him.

    Sitting him accomplishes two things. Hopefully it humbles Robert and inspires him to play better. It also protects the investment made in him. I feel like this might have been the plan the entire pre season. Name RG3 the starter and give him first team reps but sit him at least for the first few games until see what the o-line can do. We’ll see how it plays out.

    Griffin has been seriously injured every year he’s been in the league. Only a fool would put him in a game and take a chance on being on the hook for $16 million. He’s played poorly since 2013. How much longer is it going to take to figure out that it’s time to move on? McCoy has played better and deserves the backup role. Let Robert go so he can start over and put an end to this continuing drama. It will be better for the team and better for him. Archives
