RG3 is apologetic today, and who knew that it would take a simple rant from Santana Moss to get him going in the right direction.
On the heels of Moss publicly criticizing Griffin III for not being accountable, RG3 came out and was semi apologetic about the perception that he threw his entire offense under the bus after the Eagles loss.
“I think at the end of the day, I just have to know in that situation after a tough loss to a divisional opponent I can’t give anybody any opportunity to read into my words and misinterpret anything,” Robert Griffin II told reporters on Wednesday, via comments distributed by the team. “Some of the things I said — I was trying to give a good compliment to Philly. I wasn’t trying to take any shots at anybody and it turned out that way. You’re asking me today and like I said, if I could take any of that back, yeah, I would take it back, because in the heat of that moment, you’re frustrated. You’re trying to figure out why things didn’t work. I’m trying to give you guys honest answers and it hurt us in that sense. That’s on me. I’ve just got to take more time to think about things and just not, even when I’m trying to give an honest answer, sometimes, ‘Let me look at the film’ is good enough, because you can look at the film and figure it out.”
Griffin III still should have apologized rather than use the word regret.
The apology is necessary, especially after it came to light that Griffin III“called the wrong protection” on the final play from scrimmage.
