From the Washington Post...

Will Robert Griffin III help or hurt the next Redskins coach?

 

Previous Washington Redskins coaches only had to deal with one divisive influence at the top of the franchise. Now there are two. The next head coach will have to cope not just with owner-supremo Daniel Snyder’s interference, but with the added complication of a 23-year-old boy emperor who believes he can dictate everything from the play-calling to what’s served at training table.

 

 

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.

 

 

Try winning with a quarterback who has alienated his receivers and members of the offensive line. Any head coaching candidate has to be concerned about the locker room bad blood we all saw evidence of this season. Griffin sat on the ground after sacks and no one helped him up. We all heard, too, Pierre Garcon’s barely contained anger, and Santana Moss’s remarkable public lecture that Griffin needed to quit blaming others and take responsibility for his own failures. It was a significant break with protocol and suggested how badly relationships had eroded; players almost always feel duty-bound to support their quarterback.

 

Seriously hope McDermott doesn't get this job.

Clearly, it's gotten pretty ugly there.

But the article asks a valid question.

 

How is a coach supposed to have any authority when the quarterback can just "run to daddy"?

Oh yea, no doubt it comes down to RG3

 

That is why they need a coach to bitch slap him and tell him to sit the fug down and shut the fug up

 

And Snyder needs to be hands fuging off, if RG3 is benched so be it
