Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III Claims St. Louis Rams Play ‘Dirty’

The Washington Redskins were close to taking last Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams into overtime before Josh Morgan‘s boneheaded mistake cost the team a 15-yard penalty that put them far out of field goal range. While the Redskins still put up one heck of a performance, it appears their star rookie quarterback is frustrated with how the Rams played the game.

Robert Griffin III recently discussed how St. Louis played “dirty” last Sunday–claiming they took numerous cheap shots and said the game was even “unprofessional.” Overall, Griffin performed well his first two games as he’s completed 39 of 55 passes over the first two games for 526  yards to go along with five total touchdowns (two rushing touchdowns)

“There was some extracurricular stuff going on after the plays,” Griffin said. “They were doing a lot of dirty things. I still think they have an extremely good team, that doesn’t take anything away from them, but the game was unprofessional. Who am I to talk? I’ve barely been a pro for very long, but from what I experienced against the Saints compared to that game, it was definitely unprofessional and it does need to be cleaned up.”

Of course, part of the reason why this may be happening is because of the replacement officials as some players appear to be taking advantage of the situation by playing with a different style–one that can be considered cheap and unfair. Either way, there’s nothing Griffin can do about what happened in Sunday’s game–so the best thing he can do is prepare for Sunday’s home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.
