    Who deserves the bulk of the blame for the RG111 situation?

    No one.

    BTW, describe the "situation" as you see it.

    After having his leadership skills questioned a story suddenly appeared that there is/was preferential treatment given to RGIII by Snyder that did not go over well with the coaches and some players. There is no real clarity on exactly how this decision was made. Somehow this turned into a soap opera like love triangle. I can't figure out if this is simply a dysfunctional family, a power play by a lame duck coach who seems to want out, or somehow personal. I guess my concern is less with the decision although I don't agree with it, than with how it was handled.

    He's simply not that good. Of course, it doesn't help being on a pretty bad team, but they invested way too much in him and neglected pretty much everything else.

    Are you talking about Robert Griffin the 111th?

    I guess it's his fault.
    "...more talking went on between us all until [Roethlisberger and his entourage] left the bar. Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    Everyone (Snyder/Tranny/RG3) has fault in it to some extent. How much, I don't know.

    Didn't he win the rookie of the year award just a season ago? He's had a tough year but he is still a young player and sometimes you have to accept periods of poor play especially if he has a sub-standard team and is playing hurt.

    Dan Snyder

    You don't bring in a head coach like Shanahan and then tell him to trade away the entire future for one QB that he didn't even want.

    Owners need to know their roles and it is not making personnel / GM decisons.

    Snyder deserves a lot of blame, but I say Robert deserves the most. Snyder certainly encouraged Robert's sense of entitlement and treated him better than everyone else, and that is where his blame comes in. Robert chose to buy into that sense of privilege and into his own hype; he did not have to do that. Before he even got drafted, Robert trademarked "RGIII" and "unbelievably believable". The writing was on the wall that he was a bit of a diva. Not to throw comparisons around, but Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson would not have bought into everything the way Robert has. Those two just seem way too centered to me to do that.

    The bottom line is Robert made everything that has to do with the Redskins more about him and less about the team. The whole "all in for week one" deal was a polarizing example of that. Whether he was 100% healthy or not, he was going to play. Regardless of whether or not he gave his team the best chance to win games, he was going to play.

    I have to disagree with this. RG III has shown flashes of Brilliance at QB. His injury has changed his game and he hasn't had enough time to adjust since he rushed back into the starting role. I also believe Shanny's system is flawed. Shanny is a one dimensional coach which makes his play calling predictable. RG III is in the wrong system, the Shanny's need to go.

    Also agree with not liking RGIII's mentality. If you already think your the best, it doesn't leave you much room for improvement.

    Blame Shanahan for not controlling the media shitstorm that hovers over Washington.

    This whole situation has nothing to do with Snyder, RGIII, or Shanahan. This is another perfect example of how winning cures all problems in professional sports. Did we hear any of this crap last year when Washington was winning the NFC East and hosting a playoff game?

    The reason you are hearing it now is because Washington is 3-10 and will be watching the Rams draft someone in the top 3 or 4, possibly even 1st overall, that could have been their selection.

    If Washington was 10-3, would we be hearing any of this?
