    The Washington Redskins might have a better chance of beating the Detroit Lions on Sunday with Kirk Cousins at quarterback instead of Robert Griffin III. But benching Griffin right now would be a huge mistake. Yes, I saw Griffin struggle to make plays yesterday against the Packers and last Monday against the Eagles, at least…

    RG3-vs.-Packers

    As Yogi Berra once said, it was like déjà vu all over again. Just like last Monday against the Eagles, Robert Griffin III had a nice game if all you did was look at his final stat line. He was 26 for 40 for 320 yards and 3 touchdowns, a passer rating of 104.2. But…

    Last year, the Redskins went into New Orleans armed with an offensive game plan that the Saints didn’t know was coming. Robert Griffin III and his offensive teammates ambushed the Saints, who had won 13 games and the NFC South the year before, and walked out with an impressive 40-32 win. On Sunday, the Redskins…

    Barry Cofield had hoped to play against the Eagles with a slimmed-down version of the club cast that protected his broken right hand in practice all week. But as it turned out the doctors apparently weren’t comfortable with him playing with anything less that the full club so that’s what he wore on Monday night.…

    The Redskins weren’t the only team that had some defensive issues in their season opener. The Packers, their opponent on Sunday, did not have a good day defensively in San Francisco. Colin Kaepernick lit up their secondary for 412 yards passing and three touchdowns. I think Anquan Boldin just caught another pass against them adding…

    RG3-tackled-Philly

    Due to the reconstructive surgery to his right knee eight months ago, Robert Griffin III did not play in the preseason and his work in training camp was very limited. He started the season opener against the Eagles and for the early part of the game he looked like a quarterback who needed some more…

    Some thought that Robert Griffin III might be rusty as he started his first game exactly eight months after reconstructive surgery on his right knee. They were right. The Redskins were shut out on offense in the first half and Griffin’s ineffectiveness was one of the main reasons why. Griffin was 5 for 11 passing…
