07:17 AM ET 11.20 | Washington is a city known to have its fair share of in-house squabbling, and it appears there's some of that in the Redskins locker room now, too. Santana Moss wasn't too appreciative of RGIII crediting the Redskins receivers' inability to get open on the final play as reason for him throwing the interception that secured their 24-16 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. "At the end of the day, I was seen with the ball in my hand last, as a quarterback I'm saying," Moss told Lavar and Dukes on Tuesday, "and if it didn't get done then I'm going to let you know it was me." Moss was simply asked to respond to Griffin's comments about the Eagles knowing every play that was coming, and his receivers not being open, which forced him to try to throw the ball away in the back of the end zone.

RGIII has the big head... Doesn't own up to his HUGE faults, and displays a somewhat arrogant "I'm above the team" attitude. It's getting old fast. If the Receivers were WIDE open he would've missed them, just like he's been doing all season. A Good leader is accountable. You can ask Darrell Green that.

But I'm sure RGIII will jump on his facebook and twitter with some Bible quote as if anyone who's against him is going to burn in hell forever.

You're not a leader Hoss.

Bob is a characteristic Millennial: wafer thin ego and the idea that he is the center of the universe. I think he's talented but also poisonous in the locker room.

Santana Moss is the epitome of the type of player you want on your team and in your locker room. He leads without selling socks and shoes and subway sandwhiches. If he speaks up like this, there is a problem.

III went from saviour of the franchise to pariah of the locker room in ten games. Thats got to be some kind of record.

Any goodwill from RGIII's overachieving rookie season has been thrown out the window this year.

November 20, 2013  09:19 AM ET

Not seeing much leadership here either... from the locker room nor from the coaching staff.

Coaches too.

The Coach believes in his player, The player doesn't believe in his Coach, This Coach will keep throwing him out there and eventually he will get it!

You know... I recall a couple of years ago when that same statement was made about a young Cam Newton. And at the time, it was very justified. Just like it is right now with Griff.

Gotta get better players... that's on the GM.

The cap penalty hurt in filling needs via free agency.

Next year the GM can actually sign free agents and upgrade the team.


The problem is with coaching.
