Report: Benching RG3 is 'not out of the question'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins coach Jay Gruden has the authority to bench quarterback Robert Griffin III, if his play isn't good enough, according to NFL.com National Insider Ian Rapoport. A source told Rapoport that benching Griffin is "not out of the question."

The landscape has changed for RG3 and there are no more special rules for him, including his family having all-access to the team's facilities. 

However, the Redskins will try to make it easy on Griffin during Sunday's game against the 49ers. The game plan is for Griffin to make quick throws to the team's playmakers. They want to give Griffin easy reads, so he can get rid of the football quickly. They have tinkered with the game plan all week, according to Rapoport.

Team sources said Gruden received support from upper management on his critical assessment of Griffin's play.

"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden told NFL Network recently. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."

Redskins coach Jay Gruden: 'Clock is ticking' for Robert Griffin III
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Redskins coach Jay Gruden told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that the "clock is ticking" for quarterback Robert Griffin III and that he has "auditioned long enough." Gruden also added that the team needs to "find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."

"He's auditioned long enough," Gruden said. "Clock's ticking. He's gotta play. We'll see. ... We want Robert to excel, we really do. But the last two games, it hasn't been very good, anywhere. We gotta play better around him. And the biggest thing for us as play-callers, and for him, we just have to come together and jell with plays he's comfortable with. That takes time. But we don't have a lot of time."

Griffin is 32 starts into his Redskins career but has been plagued by injuries. This season alone, he has had 33 possessions, 14 of which resulted in punts and six which have resulted in turnovers. Only five of those drives have resulted in touchdowns.

"His biggest thing, he's been coddled for so long. It's not a negative, he's just been so good, he just hasn't had a lot of negative publicity," Gruden said. "Everybody's loved him. Some adversity is striking hard at him now, and how he reacts to that off the field, his mental state of mind, how it affects his confidence, hopefully it's not in a negative way. I read Drew Brees said after a couple interceptions, 'I'm never gonna lose confidence, I'm gonna come out firing all the time.'"

Over his last two starts, Griffin has completed 41 of 60 pass attempts (68.3 percent), compiling 458 yards along with two touchdowns and three interceptions.

"It's a production-based business. We haven't won many games lately with him," Gruden said. "We gotta figure out a way to get in the end zone. We just have to score. I don't care how we do it. If it's running the zone-read, I don't care. Quarterback sneaks, I don't give a damn. We gotta find a way to utilize him where we can get productive drives and stay away from negative plays and have some consistency."

Redskins QB Robert Griffin: 'I want to play better'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has responded to public criticism uttered by Jay Gruden in regard to his struggles on the field.

Gruden criticized his footwork, reading of defenses and overall performance after a poor game Sunday against Tampa Bay.

"Jay wants me to play better," Griffin told the Washington Times. "I want to play better. We're focused on San Francisco, and that's all I've got to say about that."

The Redskins meet the 49ers on the road in Week 12.

Gruden: RG3 'needs to worry about himself and not everybody else'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Redskins coach Jay Gruden didn't hold back Monday when talking about the struggles of quarterback Robert Griffin III during Sunday's home loss against the Bucs.

"Robert had some fundamental flaws," Gruden said, per NFL.com. "His footwork was below average. He took three-step drops when he should have taken five. He took a one-step drop when he should have taken three on a couple occasions and that can't happen. He stepped up when he didn't have to step up, and he stepped into pressure. He read the wrong side of the field a couple times.

"So, from his basic performance just critiquing Robert, it's not even close to good enough to what we expect from the quarterback position."

Gruden also responded Monday to Griffin's postgame comments in which he said a quarterback only plays well if his teammates do their job.

"First of all, Robert needs to understand he needs to worry about himself No. 1 and not everybody else," Gruden said. "... It's my job to worry about everybody else. Yes, everybody else needs to improve, but it's not his place. His place is to talk about himself and he knows that. He just elaborated a little too much and he'll learn from it. He's 24 years old."

Robert Griffin III not the answer to your QB issues
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's return from a dislocated ankle has left the team with more questions than answers about the future of their quarterback position, and Fantasy owners can't feel too great about what he has done so far either.

Griffin completed 23 of 32 passes in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, but finished the game with just 14 Fantasy points, thanks to a pair of interceptions to just one touchdown. He has just 30 combined Fantasy points over two games since returning from injury, and has yet to break off a huge rushing play to justify his subpar passing numbers.

Griffin is completing plenty of passes, but the lack of big plays has been alarming. On 100 pass attempts, he has just two touchdowns, to three interceptions, and has yet to find the end zone with his feet. Griffin needs to prove he can be a consistent contributor before you trust him with your starting quarterback spot down the stretch.
