    Report: RGIII bragged about his influence over Snyder

    "So why are the Redskins sensitive about the perception that quarterback Robert Griffin III’s input regarding the coaching hire means he has too much influence over the team? Possibly because perception is reality.

    According to Sally Jenkins of the Washington Post, Griffin has “bragged to teammates that he could procure favors from the owner and influence the franchise’s direction.” Jenkins cites unnamed “insiders” in support of the report.

    She also writes that Griffin engaged in “fierce finger-pointing tensions with his wide receivers” during the quarterback’s second season."

    coach killer

    Shanahan is a good ball coach...imagine Shanny and his zone-blocking at the height of the Eli Era ? (Jacobs, Bradshaw, Suebert, Diehl, MacKenzie...)

    Why do you think he wanted out? He was trying to get fired. You cant operate under an owner like that, just like Jerry Jones and the late Al Davis.

    Shanahan is a very, very overrated coach.

    I disagree, but you have your opinion and I have mine.

    Hard to take info from "insider" sources as gospel, but Griffin does come across as a bit of a ****.

    Bobby was the owners pick, so anyone who stands in his way will go down in flames.
    I thought it was hilarious what Shanahan did this year, he benched a healthy Bob Griffin and replaced him with the QB he wanted to start all along.
    Talk about giving the owner the middle finger to his face... Yes he got fired, but the Redskins still have to pay him his $7 million base salary next year.

    We ARE talking about Snyder who has a passion for the spotlight. He's enamored with his headline grabbing QB. Shanahan (a SB winning HC) didn't stand a chance.

    Long live Dan Snyder!!! As long as he's around the Redskins will be laughed at.
