RGIII is off to a great start this season, but his comments about the St. Louis Rams taking too many shots at him seemed a little odd as he basically called them out as dirty players:
For example, a TV camera caught Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar give Griffin a forearm to the head as he got up from knocking Griffin down after a first-quarter pass.
“They were doing a lot of dirty things,” Griffin said Wednesday. “I still think they have an extremely good team. That doesn’t take anything away from them. But the game was unprofessional.
“Who am I to talk? I’ve barely been a pro for very long, but from what I experienced against the Saints to that game, it was definitely unprofessional, and it does need to be cleaned up.”
As a rookie and a quarterback you’re probably better off keeping these things to yourself. This is even more true for Robert Griffin III as the Shanahans have him running from the quarterback spot. I can understand their desire to take advantage of all of RGIII’s skills, but having him run out of set option plays seems a bit too risky to me. He already has a target on his back, and now with these comments you’ll have more defensive players happy to welcome him to the NFL.
