RGIII making himself part of the problem

07:26 AM ET 01.07 | On the surface, Robert Griffin III is a dream QB with electric talents. Instead, any head coaching candidate will be hesitant about working with a player whose rampant owner-empowered entitlement was clearly part of the team's problem this season. Once, Griffin was an immensely likable, unpretentious kid who was wide open to collaboration. But according to insiders, Griffin's public campaign to have the offense altered for him was just the tip of his egotism in his second year. Behind closed doors, Griffin had fierce finger-pointing tensions with his wide receivers, and he bragged to teammates that he could procure favors from the owner and influence the franchise's direction. The Redskins have always suffered from chronic organizational deformities under Snyder, but never this badly.

Sally Jenkins is a damn good writer.

As far as the article... sounds to me like Mike Zimmer would be a really good fit up there.

It is a good article. And bad news for Redskin fans. Even if Griffin tries to use some judgment on how to use his relationship with the owner, Snyder will still be Snyder.

Agree. It can go either way at this point. RG can grow and learn-or not. That story is yet to be written. Reminds me of when coughlin moved in to the Giants head job and had to clean up a similar situation with Tiki and some others after Fassel let the inmates run the asylum. Was not easy to do and ticked some players off but it does work in the long run. Problem is will Snyder let that kind of guy do the necessary dirty work?

Anyone in particular at the top of your HC wish-list?

This guy's getting some bad advice from somewhere.

Looks like the Colts picked wisely!

Of course they did. when did a black QB win a big game?

January 7, 2014  08:53 AM ET

I guess RGIII isn't the self affacing kid from Baylor that everyone thought he was.

In 1988 sir in San Diego the Redskins won the Super Bowl with Doug Williams (black QB), since you didn't know that, and also was the MVP of the game rwip.
