Robert Griffin III needs to refine his skills off the field as much as on it

Robert Griffin III has struggled on the field, and he has a long way to go off of it as well. Griffin’s shortcomings in his role as the face of the Washington Redskins is as much of a problem as his shakiness in the pocket. Griffin says he wants to lead the team to Super Bowl titles, but there’s a lot more that goes into being a great leader than merely making strong throws. Read full article >>

Redskins Blog: Griffin’s preseason passer-rating ranks 54th among 58 NFC QBs who took snaps; McCoy, 7th; Cousins, 14th

It’s no secret that Washington’s third-year quarterback Robert Griffin III struggled in adapting to the role of pocket-passer during the preseason. The hesitation was evident in the way he held onto the ball a tick too long, resulting in four sacks in his limited outings in three games, and took off running more than once before identifying an open receiver.

DC Sports Bog: Where are Robert Griffin III and other Redskins being picked in fantasy football drafts?

I participated in two fantasy football drafts earlier this week and was intrigued — at least as much as anyone can be intrigued by a fantasy football draft — to see where Robert Griffin III would be picked given his struggles this preseason. Also: Would anyone take a flier on Kirk Cousins in the late rounds? Read full article >>

DC Sports Bog: Chris Cooley says RGIII looked ‘afraid to fail’ in last preseason game

Here’s another entry into the almanac of Robert Griffin III preseason analysis. It comes from Chris Cooley, the ESPN 980 host, Redskins Radio analyst and former RGIII teammate.

Redskins’ RGIII needs a confidence boost

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III needs to exhale. One long, deep breath that dispels demons while giving him time to find solutions. The passer’s biggest concern isn’t the latest drama of whether he should be benched for Kirk Cousins or that he can’t slide, shouldn’t tweet, does too many commercials or can’t get along with coaches or teammates. Those are the small things that will forever be present for the quarterback, who is now over a year and a half removed from his last knee surgery. Read full article >>

Hazard's Huddle: Controlling the Middle Of The Field

A quick film look at Robert Griffin III and the middle of the field. The pitchforks have certainly been out this week, huh? I won't get into the Redskins "QB controversy" because I file it into the same folder as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny. Robert Griffin III has things he needs to work on. "Leading the league in mental reps" is always a bonus but you need to know what you're looking at in order for those mental reps to pay off. You can get a lot of cheap yards in the middle of the field but we aren't hitting on as many of those plays as we should. Let's take a...

Redskins Blog: Gruden: Griffin struggling because a lack of confidence

Jay Gruden cited a lack of confidence as the primary stumbling block in Robert Griffin III’s game. The cure for this, according to the football coach, is repetition. Griffin had his worst showing of the preseason Saturday, completing five of eight passes for just 20 yards and an interception while getting sacked three times in six possessions. The quarterback, who finished the game with a 27.1 passer rating, frequently held onto the ball too long, missing small windows of opportunities to extend drives. Other times, he gave up on plays too quickly and tucked the ball and ran rather than...
