Redskins QB Robert Griffin III says whatever is on his mind to the media, and doesn’t plan on changing it.
Last week, Griffin sparked a debate over addressing the media about rumors that he and head coach Mike Shanahan had been in conflict over his recovery timetable from knee surgery. Griffin was criticized by many for taking an unnecessary step in squashing the rumors, but he doesn’t regret it.
“It sucks. That’s why I had to come out and make that statement,” Griffin told reporters. “But I sat down and talked to a few people to make a decision. Do I stop being who I am and stop being honest with you guys and give you guys ammunition to turn against this team? Or do I just go into a shell and Bill Belichick it all week? But I’m just gonna continue to be who I am.”
Griffin continued: “If something like that does happen, you make a statement and make sure everybody gets it clear, but I don’t think I’m gonna change who I am just because people take my words and use them against me.”
