Quarterback Controversy in Washington
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden stated that the jury is still out on who will be the long-term starter for his squad. Former Redskins first-round pick responded to that by saying the Redskins are his team and that he will lead them. Gruden has been unsure about his quarterbacks ever since RGIII dislocated his ankle earlier this year. Gruden put in then back up Kirk Cousins who played inconsistent to say the least. He threw far too many interceptions to not be producing at least 4 TDs a game. Cousins couldn't get the job done, as was shown when the 'Skins got blown out by a weak Giants squad. In stepped third stringer Colt McCoy who played exceptionally well in his two games under center. However, after McCoy's two games RGIII was fully recovered. Robert Griffin III was officially back in week 9 against the Minnesota Vikings where he played very average. The young QB is ready to fight his way for the starting position, but could his injuries prove just too much for him to handle against an experienced QB like McCoy. As for now, Gruden's words may have sparked something in Griffin III, but his words still ring true. The jury is out on who will be the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback of the future.
