This was bound to happen. In fact, it’s surprising this didn’t happen sooner. From the beginning of the season, Robert Griffin III didn’t look himself and it has shown throughout much of the season. Under normal circumstances, he probably would’ve been benched weeks ago, but what’s going on in Washington is anything but normal.
While being embarrassed at home vs. the Chiefs 45-10, Kirk Cousins came out to QB to team early in the 4th quarter.
However, I wouldn’t read too much into this. I’d assume Griffin will be the starter next week (barring an amazing performance from Cousins). This loss doesn’t fall squarely on Griffin’s shoulders. The entire team played poorly: offense, defense and special teams.
