Robert Griffin III, may be the most criticized quarterback in the NFL, and this week he did not do too bad. There are people already trying to write off his performance and stated they want Kirk Cousins running with the ones, but his head coach is not having it.
“I see some negative articles here and there on our quarterbacks, but Robert was (4-for-8) with a 60-yard touchdown that was dropped,” Gruden said, per The Washington Post. “He had a big third-down conversion. He missed the fade route to Pierre (Garcon). He threw it out of bounds — was a little bit adrenaline-rushed. And, of course, he missed the (third-and-5) throw to (Evan) Spencer, whose route was a little bit short. But overall I think managing the game, the position, getting the plays out; we didn’t have one penalty on offense, which was exciting.”
Griffin also praised RGIII for resetting his feet and adjusting to Garcon’s route on the deep ball, saying, “Pierre will make that play 99 times out of 100.”
Jay Gruden is right, that drop by Garcon would have been a touchdown, because he torched Justin Gilbert of the Browns badly. I think people need to relax a little when it comes to RG3. Let him play first then criticize him.
