Recently, a lot of players have been voicing their displeasure with the team in public. Jay and his staff (as any coaching staff should), have some issues with players NOT keeping their issues in-house.
What is said behind closed doors is all fine and dandy - as long as it stays behind those closed doors, and is being dealt with man-to-man.
D.J. Swearinger is the latest Redskins to publically criticize the team and/or its coaches.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he was "quite disappointed" with D.J. Swearinger's post-game comments ripping defensive coordinator Greg Manusky.

Are Redskins players trying to tell us something? Maybe, just maybe, this is worse (if humanly possible) behind closed doors?
Is this the players way of saying changes need to happen - either at the personnel level, the coaching level, or all the way at the top?

How do you feel about the players airing their grievances in public?
This poll is closed
This should never happen - regardless of the situation
I have no problem with it - someone needed to say what we are all thinking
Does it really matter?
