On RG3 and Shutting Up

Here is an excerpt from a larger piece, please visit the link below for the full post.

Griffin’s attempts to force head coach Mike Shanahan into playing him during the preseason are both tiresome and worrying. As a fan (first and foremost), I certainly appreciate his desire to get back on the field with his teammates and work off the rust of a surgically-repaired knee. And I also understand that as an energetic young man who immediately assumed the mantle of leadership and then took some criticism for the team’s playoff loss, he feels a burden to prove himself yet again.

What dismays me is that Griffin refuses to allow Shanahan to draw the criticism while Griffin remains working diligently toward his comeback in the shadows. All it would take is a simple, "I’m going to do whatever the coaches tell me so that, together, we can put this team in the best possible position for the long season ahead," and the media would quit with the questions. We all know Shanahan can handle whatever heat the media gives him. But Griffin feels the need to express himself and his frustration at not playing, without regard to his or the team’s best interests.
