Green, a Hall of Famer widely considered to be one of the best cornerbacks in league history, made his assertion about Robert Griffin III and the overall state of the 3-6 Redskins on Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”
“It’s not very good,” Green said. “It’s not very good. … I think that it’s been rough, but it looks like the kid — and I’m talking about RG III — it looks like he’s starting to get it back.
“But I just feel so bad that you would have a system where it’s all predicated on this guy running. He’s the second rusher on the team. It doesn’t work, in my opinion.”
RG III offered a response to recent criticism, including the way he handles adversity.
“Right now, it’s not a burden,” Griffin said. “It’s a burden if you make it a burden. You’ve got to believe. I understand what comes with being the quarterback of the Washington Redskins. I understand what comes with being a quarterback in the NFL. And yeah, it might be a little harder here because of certain aspects of what goes on around this team. I understand that. I’ve got tough skin.”
