TMZ – citing unnamed Redskins player: ‘Playing with RG3 has been a nightmare’
(CBS Washington) WASHINGTON D.C. – So, TMZ Sports is getting a piece of the unnamed Redskins sources action.
Either late Friday night or early Saturday morning — depending on how you look at it — TMZ published a report, citing a player “who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity,” alleging no one in the Redskins locker room believes in Robert Griffin III anymore.
The player — who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity — says playing with RG3 has been a nightmare this season … and the locker room has lost faith in the QB.
“No one is happy … no one gets the hype around him anymore,” the player source told TMZ.
But it’s not so much what Griffin does (or doesn’t do) on the field, but rather how he behaves off it that has his teammates bothered, according to TMZ.
“He’s secluded and it affects us in the game,” the source told TMZ. “We don’t have that real rapport. He’s lost confidence and is complacent now.”
That player source had one final dagger to weave in.
“I don’t see him being in the NFL for that long,” he who shall remain unnamed told TMZ. “I think he goes into politics. He’s good at that kinda thing.”
One of the more recent instances in a long line of unnamed sources within the Redskins organizationleaking information to the press came ahead of Griffin being benched ahead of the Colts game.
The trouble with unnamed player sources, though, is on a 53-man roster, it really could be anyone, which leaves the remaining 52 guys in that locker room wondering who’s untrustworthy.
I mean, it basically could be ANYONE who dislikes Griffin enough to anonymously disparage his leadership and question his longevity in the league.
As the wise Santana Moss once said (three weeks ago), the Redskins “got these cats dry snitching.”
